TGB Returns! Episode 2.01: Cold Openings and Warm Welcomes

February 4, 2015

The Golden Briefcase Version 2.0

After a long haitus, Tim and Jeremy have returned for The Golden Briefcase: Version 2.0! With the new format, the guys abandon segments (with the exception of the beloved Pick of the Week) and instead move towards a roundtable discussion. This is where we really want you, the listener, to come in! In the past, emails have been a fun way to keep in contact with you all but now we are really asking for you to join in and even create discussion. The new format allows for those glorious rabbit trails and deep discussions about the fascinating world of cinema and we love those moments and want to embrace them! Send us topic suggestions, arguments, links, or whatever you want, and we will do our best to talk it through on the show.

During the break, the guys took the time think about the future and mission of the podcast and have decided to return to what they love most about the show: talking about movies. On this premiere episode, the guys share some Picks of the Week and then touch on a variety of topics including director Renny Harlin, Platinum Dunes remakes, cold openings, punk rock, American Sniper and much more. We are excited to keep talking movies with you folks and are so jazzed to be back. Tune in and we'll talk to you soon! Send us thoughts and get in touch at Thank you for your patience, and enjoy.

What movie is that picture from? I want to see it.

&)#%&#% MEGAFORCE!!!! Pure 80s awesomeness! A must watch, but please keep an open mind. That motorcycle and dune buggy are pretty much the best thing about that flick. (That I remember)
