Movies: Road House

Patrick Swayze at the height of his powers plays the role of the head bouncer, or cooler and is poached to clean up a whole new bar. His story, the romance, backstory, and the story of the new town consume his life and Road House is the result. One for the ladies? One for the Men? Perhaps a bit for everyone but not everything for anyone. Stephen walks Trevor through a movie that plenty might not have seen, so watch it for the first time with Trev, or again and again with Stephen.

Movies: First Blood

Sylvester Stallone is John J Rambo - a Vietnam vet who comes to find a fellow soldier only to find he's the last man alive. He comes to a small town where just on appearance he's rejected and things go from bad to worse very quickly. The skills he has make for a confrontation beyond the expectation of those against him. But underneath it all is an important message. Trev's seen it - he can't work out when, but this is a proper watch taking in all aspects of the movie thanks to Stephen's knowledge.

TBTT #559 - Twitter Paywall

Twitter in the news because Elon is playing out his planning meetings on the platform itself. Should blue ticks cost money? Should the platform do better to prevent fake accounts? Lots to unpack. Boost Mobile has a new survey about how cost of living is impacting many, including regional Australians plus we're too loyal. The EFTM Mobile survey showed similar results as well as some real questions about the impact of the Cyber Attack on Optus' customer retention. Call of Duty is out, and the blokes nearly forgot to talk about it but unpack their thoughts on the campaign and more. Plus, FedEx using WhatsApp - so much to talk about once again.
