The Movie Breakdown Episode 99: 'Minions' Review, Birthday Celebration for Summit, and Good-Byes to Omar Sharif and 'The Dissolve'

It is a crammed episode as Scott and I have a buffet of topics to discuss and not all movie related, as Scott reveals his "brave new hero" and I reflect upon my trusty 95 pound lap dog who turned 6 years old, Summit. In the movie realm we have reviews for the big animated release Minions and a 1980s high school comedy considered a classic, Can't Buy Me Love. We also eulogize screen legend Omar Sharif, 1980s film star Amanda Peterson and the great movie site, The Dissolve.

If you love the show then please spread the word.
