This week, on the podcast with zero cool, Brian and Cargill invite you to hack the planet! Hackers is a time capsule of a movie that, while laughable in its wholly inaccurate depiction of hacker culture, is spectacular and thrilling in its similarly inaccurate depiction of the internet. As The Plague says, "there is no right and wrong, there is only fun and boring." We tend to agree.

Cargill and Brian would like to welcome you to The Rock! We take pleasure in gutting the notion that this 1996 actioner is basic, trashy, and/or brainless. The Rock is a uniquely structured spectacle that houses a wildly subversive political tone and one of cinema's most fascinatingly complex villains. All that, plus Brian can't stop doing a Sean Connery impression. Losers whine about their best, winners download and share this episode.

Brian and Cargill are joined by Austin author/filmmaker Owen Egerton as they all spend one night in the 1980 haunted house masterpiece The Changeling. Subtle at points, starkly terrifying at others, and featuring one of the most heartbreaking opening sequences in cinema, The Changeling was a groundbreaking movie that influenced generations of horror, including Owen's latest film The Axe Murders of Villisca.

Alamo Drafthouse programmer Greg MacLennan joins Brian and Cargill to discuss the weird, wonderful rock fable that is Walter Hill's Streets of Fire. Why did audiences fail to connect with Streets of Fire, how did it influence Pulp Fiction, and what role was originally offered to...Paul McCartney? It's time for this flick to come out of the blue shadows and be regarded as the classic that it is!
