Patron Exclusive Review #76

The unabridged Moby Dick audiobook runs 24 hours and 49 minutes. This podcast is much shorter.

Estranged brothers Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton have very different reasons for entering the Sparta MMA tournament, but they are on a collision course to combat in the ring. These two actors built their resume and their muscles to “go to war” in this fighting flick. Did it work out for them? And does Nick Nolte deserve the Oscar nomination he got for playing the boys’ recovered alcoholic father? Listen now and find out!
