Do You Like Prince Movies? Podcast: Pain & Gain and Michael Bay

Pain & GainLike everyone else on the Internet, Wesley and Alex wanted Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain — his first film without Decepticons in a while — to be amazing. And it’s amazing. But is it good?

All this plus a defense of The Island! Get pumped.
