Disney Rewind Episode 9: The Black Hole

November 19, 2020

Episode 9 Black Hole, in which we discuss bad science, listen to Steve pitch another terrible movie idea, talk about Max's love for robots, and really just roast a terrible movie for a good bit of time. Oh, also Ben says some stupid stuff again. That's just a given on these shows though.
