Matthew Modine joins the show to discuss making Full Metal Jacket with the great Stanley Kubrick. He dives into Stanley's process, and personality behind the scenes, breaks down the themes of the film, and even touches on his collaboration with Christopher Nolan.

We also discuss the Emmy's with Schitt's Creek and Watchmen winning big, the new WandaVision trailer (note: before news of Disney/Marvel's big schedule shift), and more.

For this week's BlendGame, we dive into Tom Hardy's amazing filmography to pull out our favorite performances. Next week, we are celebrating the late Michael Chapman, a prolific cinematographer who has certainly made a film you cherish. Let us know your favorite of his works using #MichaelChapmanBlend.
