Not too many movies out this weekend other than the latest big budget Marvel spectacle, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, so we get into that but also some other real fun stuff.

Expect tangents taking us down a Clint Eastwood rabbit hole, chatter about the latest documentary series from Spike Lee, and a random recommendation that sits snugly in the center of a venn diagram for James Bond and, uh... Nascar.

Also we talk about the biggest bit of movie news from this week.

You can find links to all the movies they talk about in the show notes right here.
