Jake and Tom Conquer the World (tv & film)

This week, Tom convinced Jake to watch not one, but TWO of the movies he'd been nagging him about for years. First up is 2011's quiet, yet hyper-violent thriller, "Drive".  And that is quickly followed up by the science-fiction classic, "Blade Runner".

Did Jake find an appreciation for these films? Did they live up to the hype that Tom brought to the discussion?  Or is this another instance where Jake is cursing Tom out for wasting more of his time?  The only way to find out is by listening...
