Inspired by "The Compound" Podcast, we've each decided to list our top 3 movies so we can prove that we have better cinematic taste than professional baseball players. In case you missed it, The Compound is a new podcast from Ian Happ, Dakota Mekkes, Zack Short, and Nico Hoerner, which you should most definitely check out. It's a bunch of dudes in their 20s doing bro things while stuck in their shared house during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place, but they also play baseball and sometimes have awesome guests like Jon Lester. It's highly entertaining!
In episode 7, they started a new segment called "Top 3." The Top 3 for this week were movies, and unfortunately, they picked a bunch of movies like one would expect from guys who were in their early 20s. We got to talking about it and our shared disappointment that the Compound's oldest movie was Happy Gilmore (1996), so we knew we could do better and picked out our top 3 movies. #NoDisrespectToTheCompound
