EP. 318 — Torque LIVE! (w/ Jon Gabrus)

Jon Gabrus (101 Places to Party Before You Die) joins the HDTGM crew to break down the 2004 motorcycle action flick Torque, a film that answers the question, “What if rap rock was a movie?” They discuss Ice Cube’s sticky cell phone, the Carpe Diem jacket, Dane Cook’s cameo, and so much more. Plus, Torque co-star Adam Scott sends in a message detailing his experience on the movie and Gabrus performs a SHOCKING act to protect his fellow Long Islanders from danger.

So sorry, but we do get this film with How Did This Get Made all star Adam Scott as a FBI agent who might be the best part of the entire movie. But if you’ve not seen the film, how can I sum it up?
