Exploring Fan Theories with Special Guest “Liz & a Movie!”


For the first time ever, we have a special guest host join us! We know Liz is a great movie fact researcher and loves conspiracy theories, so she was really the only choice for this topic. Fan theories are so exciting because they’re another way to share our communal love of these movies, and explore new ways to enjoy them. The three of us take turns sharing and analyzing the most plausible and most divisive fan theories the internet can muster, across all kinds of movies! Follow reviews by Liz & a Movie on Instagram and Letterboxd.

For new things, Dustin gives spoiler-free first impressions of Furiosa and IF. Jake also saw Furiosa, along with LaRoy, Texas, and Abigail. Liz shares thoughts on Challengers and The Idea of You,

We also finally announce that the Official Movie Bonerz Fan Club is NOW OPEN! Join now to get access to a growing backlog of even more podcast content, including completely new episodes in a refreshingly different format. We’ll also grant exclusive access to the Clubhouse where we chat about movies and news, and you’ll get invites to interact during live recording sessions. Not to mention discounted merch and exclusive designs, and of course we’re planning giveaways that will all be Members Only! Find out more and sign up on Supercast or at MovieBonerz.com.

You should also check out Dustin’s new book! It’s not movie related, but all about his continued journey to find mental health healing, and the lessons he’s learned along the way. He’s made it all available for free on the I’m Here YouTube page and he has an Instagram as well.
