Matthew and Dean have been on a bit of a critical tear lately (okay, maybe only for “Local Hero”) with their commentary, but this week shifts into unabashed love for what Matthew is hailing as a “modern classic”. Commodus gets the nickname “Little Boots” once reserved for Caligula – the other crazy Roman, Dean has a little too much rum, and the lads really get after Joaquin Phoenix’s manner of speech and need for love. Did we cheer for the subjugation, domination, and murder of many Germanic people? Yes! Did we discuss the horrific wounds caused by the gladius (which apparently also means ‘penis’)? Yes! Don’t miss Dean’s love for Lisa Gerrard and Dean Can Dance, and watch Matthew riff on Dean’s lispy villain by invoking Ed Wynn as Commodus. If you hate laughing, skip this episode.
