Say Anything... / Aloha / Top 5 Movies of 1989 (Revisited)

Hawaii - the setting for Cameron Crowe’s ALOHA - is about 2,600 miles away from Seattle, which is the setting of his directorial debut, SAY ANYTHING... Is that also about how far apart the two films are in terms of quality? Josh and Adam answer that question with a Sacred Cow review of the movie that solidified John Cusack as an '80s icon. Plus, Massacre Theatre and a replay of the Top 5 Movies of 1989.
