Episode 32: 'Fury'

Quiet please, we're on the air! The scene opens: war-torn Germany, days before an inevitable surrender. An officer rides through a field of twisted metal and broken bodies. But suddenly, a figure leaps from a nearby decimated tank and STABS THE OFFICER TO DEATH. THROUGH HIS EYE SOCKET.

The figure slowly stands and faces us. That's right, it's Brad Pitt, and he's doin' what he does best: killin' Natzees. This week the J's review a perhaps unintended continuation of the 'Inglourious Basterds' narrative (did someone say prequel?!), film #49301, 'Fury'. Will the boys give Logan Lerman the golden badge of honor, or is the writing on the wall for David Ayer's most recent feature? And most importantly, the horse is going to be fine, right? FOR GOD'S SAKE DON'T KILL THE HORSE!! 'Dune' and tanks and laser guns await you in episode thirty-two of the J&J podcast. Enjoy.
