Extremist Movie Debate: Jacob’s Ladder

In Extremist Movie Debate, a coin flip decides who loves it and who hates it. They then debate it on the fly. This episode? Jacob’s Ladder (HBO Max)

Oftentimes, hilarity ensues (or just offensive arguments). As always, SPOILERS AHEAD.

The gang takes a look at one of the original “Wait, WTF did I just watch?!” genre. Joe loves it because he thinks it does an effective job of making the audience empathize with the main character’s psychological nightmare. Ethan hates it, believing there’s nothing interesting about the movie other than saying, “Ha ha, we gotcha, suckers!” at the end. Unpaid Intern Jeff moderates and has trouble pronouncing his favorite critic’s name.

(Jacob’s Ladder is currently streaming on HBO Max.)
