Ringing in the new year with a brand new film, the Pavement Pounders discuss the new film Predestination, currently in limited theaters and video on demand. The film is adapted from Robert Heinlein’s 1959 short story “-All You Zombies-“.
Boys will be boys, and the Pavement Pounders got caught in a temporal underwear discussion loop. It’s not pretty. Seth could’ve edited it out, but for all we know, that would unravel the fabric of reality. Get it? Fabric? I’ll be here all week.
