0095: The Running Man

It’s the start of nostalgia season! This week Alex plucks a film from his childhood to see if it still holds up, and predictably Arnold Schwarzenegger is involved.

Next week we visit Sam’s childhood by finally getting to watch The Transformers: The Movie. Watch a trailer here!
