TJ, Joe, and Chad are here to discuss a beloved classic this week. It may have the words “Princess” and “Bride” in the title, but this is not your average and sappy Disney fairly tale.

Also up for discussion: ‘The Maritan’ trailer — an upcoming film by Ridley Scott starring Matt Damon, the best ‘Jurassic World’ trailer to date, and how ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ should have ended.
