Bret and Laremy join me for another #Content-filled Frotcast, from Mr. Robot and Show Me A Hero, to pharma bro villain Martin Shkreli and internet anti-hero Nicole Arbour. We also talk the 2015 Oscar race and Johnny Depp burying his baubles. Enjoy.


1:00 – Laremy explains why Brad & Laremy on Movies no longer exists and why his dog is always biting people.
3:45 – Mr. Robot Talk
7:30 – Mr. Robot vs. Fight Club
8:20 – Spoilery dicussion of Show Me A Hero. “Oscar Isaac, I am in his teenage fan club.” -Bret. (ends around the 11-minute mark)
19:00 – The new Last Witch Hunter trailer.
23:00 – The Boston guys on the boat who have discovered a baby fackin whale, Jay. Everyone sent us this clip today, but surprise, we already heard and talked about it.
28:00 – Johnny Depp’s burying-my-baubles commercial.
30:25 – Martin Shkreli, the AIDS drug-price-raising pharma bro, plus, my controversial theory that people hate his face more than anything he has said or done.
34:00 – I predicted a pro-Martin Shkreli thinkpiece, which came to pass before we’d even edited this Frotcast.
35:00 – The DirecTV commercials, and have they taken a weird, quasi-homophobic turn?
40:00 – Coors Light ads.
43:20 – Nicole Arbour and her latest video. Our hypothesis: Nicole Armour is the monster that internet celebrity has created. Bret worries that he is Nicole Arbour.
1:03:55 – Oscar contenders. What will they be?? Our predictions.
1:10:18 – Your emails, including how to deal with your terrible film school classmates. Bret and I swap college film class stories.
