A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

044 Pee Wee's Big Adventure by Tim Burton
Ha ha! ... he he he he I know you are, but what am I? A more tangential podcast than usual, Matt and Mark push the limit this week to review Tim Burton's directorial debut, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure starring Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) as himself... sort of. Besides the prepubescent smart aleck quirks of its main character, there's not much meat on the bones of this silly Saturday morning styled film. Like most skit comedy spin-offs, Pee-Wee is an extrapolated stage bit that has its moments, but few too many unfortunately.
