Writer/Director (And our go-to guest for subpar movies) Jessica Ellis is back on the show this week to talk about a movie that reaches for the stars, and barely hits the clouds; the embarrassingly executed sci-fi thriller THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR.

We talk about all the ways this movie fails to live up to its promising premise, and the few ways it manages to sneak in the odd pearl. We also discuss the unfortunate way female stars in the 90s were used up and forgotten about, and the film's unavoidable connections to more popular films of the time, such as The Matrix and Gattaca. (Inexplicably) Kick off your shoes, and hop into another reality, as we put on our tin foil hats to and dive head first into the world of simulation theory, forgotten actors, and Roland Emmerich.
