 Finally, the boxing episode you've all been waiting for!  3 variants on the sport of punch.  We even mixed in some stuff about living legends of boxing & how their representation stands up to some scrutiny.  

Links:  Here's the '74 Foreman Fight Highlights.  Here is Top 10 Ali Knockouts.  Here is the Costner Speech.  

 Notes:  Most important:  there are at least 7 statues of Harriet Tubman, some that have only appeared in the last decade.  Funny that Matt is so keen to mention his forgetting character names, as he used the name Carter instead of Porter for Payback.  Whoooopsy!  He also forgot to mention the strength of the Creed soundtrack that features Nas, 2Pac, The Roots, Future.

Episode #217: Badass Shuffle

Badass movies - need we say more?  Other than these are lesser known & often hated?

Notes - the tattoo was not real, and it sounds like this script became more of a fictional story with real people involved featuring elements of her experiences.  It spent 10 years not being made as a biopic script, so maybe it was a necessary change.

LINKS:  Keira Knightley: Pirates o' Carribbean, The Hole.  Kurt Russell: The Thing, Stargate (has all other links).  Richard Jenkins: Spotlight, Cabin in the WoodsBurn After Reading.  All Sharlto Copley links are in the Stargate link above.  Also Mentioned: Basic, A Serious Man.  For any digital color fans that missed it, here is our Color Filters Galore episode (which has Matt's favorite movie of all time!).
