  • Chris read The Men Who Would Be King
  • What we've been Watching:
  • Chris and Ben watched Capone
  • Peter and Brad saw Josh Gad's Back to the Future reunion on YouTube.
  • Peter started watching Dave, and watched the Survivor finale with friends over FaceTime.
  • Brad watched The Perfection, Coffee & Kareem, The Wrong Missy, Solar Opposites, rewatched The Cable Guy, Not Another Teen Movie
  • Jacob watched Bad Times at the El Royale, Z, Cursed Films, The Hoarder, Paranormal Activity 3, and Where the Heart Is. He also finally finished The Outsider.
