Tired of your boring, dead-end job? Ever feel like you haven’t taken any chances in your life? Does every woman you’re romantically interested in look suspiciously like Meg Ryan? If so, then we’ve got the movie for you – this week on Alcohollywood, we’re covering Joe vs the Volcano, the 1990 Tom Hanks film written and directed by John Patrick Shanley (Doubt). Combining Expressionist visions of corporate America with Tolstoyian plot developments and the hands-down most racist portrayal of island natives you’ve ever seen, Joe vs the Volcano is sure to make you think – either in confusion or delight. Check out our drinking game and review here! (NOTE: First 10 minutes or so are in all-right quality, but we move to our fancy mic around the drink ingredients, so remain vigilant!)
Along with the ride on our steamer trunks, we’ve got Brockett from the Biggest Fan Podcast, so be sure to check out his vast podcast musings!
