On the 25th anniversary of this bizarro horror/action flick, we take a bite of the film that anchored George Clooney’s leap from TV heartthrob to box office superstar. Starring Quentin Tarantino, Harvey Kietel, Juliette Lewis and directed by Robert Rodriguez.

(we had some internet issues and Rob Otto’s mic was cutting out, so bear with that as we adjusted on the fly)

As if that weren’t problematic enough, Wakhan Reed is about to deliver a report that will cast a veil of suspicion over one of the Leader’s key underlings. Meanwhile, the woman who saved Quentin’s life gave him a hypodermic gun loaded with a strange substance to use against Gredok.
