Episode 112: ‘Get Out,’ Tony Cox Talks Star Wars, Brett Kelly Loves Octavia Spencer

‘Get Out’ from the mind of Jordan Peele is in theaters right now. The film also has an insane 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. EJ believe ‘Get Out’ will change the horror genre like Wes Craven did with ‘Scream’ back in 1996.

On the second half of the show, Matt has a very interesting conversation with Tony Cox and Brett Kelly of the ‘Bad Santa’ franchise. Cox explains how cool and difficult it was to film ‘Return of the Jedi’ as an Ewok.

Strap yourself in buckaroos! Episode 112 of the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast is here.

Who is EJ Moreno?

Is he a trained physician? No. Is he a former Miss Universe contestant? Possibly. But what we know for sure is he’s a writer, filmmaker, and pop culture enthusiast.
