Welcome to #ZacAttack! Join us as we take a look at the storied film career of the man, the myth, the legend that is Zac Efron. Love the show? Hate the show? Let us know! Email [email protected] Presented by the CageClub Podcast Network.
58:29#ZacAttack is back! (Again!) We're kicking the year off right -- by covering Zac Efron's newest film, Gold. After running through a preview of Zef's upcoming movies, Joe tries to guess Zef's character name in this movie. We talk about his ties to Robert Pattinson and how this is the kind of movie we were hoping to see from him. We also talk about Gold as both his "COVID movie" and his "new groove" before trying to figure out what's real in this movie. We also run through lots "career firsts" for Zac Efron in Gold (which we won't spoil here, but do spoil in the episode). Want even more "#ZacAttack"? Check out 2 Fast 2 Forever, which releases new episodes every Tuesday and is (almost literally) the same exact show as this, but about different movies. Seriously. We promise you. Go check it out!
1:28:57#ZacAttack is back! We're only about 15 months late to the Scoob! party after being lured back via listener emails. We're bringing the 2 Fast 2 Forever format over to this podcast as we read listener emails, gauge our Scooby Doo histories, and take a moment to guess how Zef will cry and be shirtless in this movie. Then, after a break, we strike back with a vengeance to talk about all things Scoob!, including a Ryan Reynolds character not played by Ryan Reynolds, Zef's character's truly blue eyes, and altogether too many connections to the Fast and Furious franchise. Will #ZacAttack return (once again) to cover Human Discoveries or Down to Earth with Zac Efron? Write into the show and convince us to come back, or just check out 2 Fast 2 Forever every Tuesday! (It's truly the same show, just about different movies.)
037 The Beach Bum (2019)
1:23:51The Year of Zef continues! We previewed the Beach Bum a bit when we talked about Zef Bundy, but we’re back to give Harmony Korine’s latest movie its proper due. In this episode, we give praise to Zef as Flicker, one of the many weird souls that Moondog (Matthew McConaughey) encounters on his journeys throughout Florida. We also talk about Miniboo, Lingerie Doggy Dogg, Captain Wack and more as we embed ourselves deep into the neon-drenched wonderland of South Florida. Also, we look ahead (and make our crying and shirtless guesses) for the recently-dated new Zef project, Human Discoveries!
The CageClub Podcast Network Celebrates its 1000th Episode!
2:42:45In August 2015, we released our very first podcast and proceeded to tear through Nicolas Cage’s filmography at a breakneck pace. We had no idea that we'd continue after we finished Cage’s filmography, but we asked, “What’s next?” and went from there. After nearly four years, we are releasing our 1,000th episode. In this episode, Joey Lewandowski talked many of your favorite CageClub Podcast Network hosts: Mike Manzi of Third Time’s A Charm, Joe Two of 2 Fast 2 Forever, Chris Podcasts of Now and Again, Brian Rodriguez of High School Slumber Party, Kyle Reinfried of Foodie Films, Jordan Polan-Clarke and Cara Gael O’Regan of Wistful Thinking, Aislinn Addington of The Contenders, Lindsay Gibb of Winona Forever, Jonah Rubino of X is for Podcast, and Nico Vasilo and Kevo Risse of .html.

036 Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019)
1:22:30Welcome to the Summer of Zef! After nearly a year of no new #ZacAttack episodes, we're back with (at least) two new episodes this summer, and we're kicking things off with Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Zac Efron continues his shift from good guy to frat guy to... interesting guy? But is this role and this movie interesting enough? In this episode, we recap the past year of Zef news, open up a very dusty mailbag, and wonder what kinds of projects Zef will tackle next. We also look forward to the next few episodes, lament that we can't play the Google game, and reflect on our 18-month-old shirtless and crying guesses!
035 Running Wild with Bear Grylls (2014)
55:41#ZacAttack is back, baby! Joey and Joe Two missed Zac Efron too much, so they tapped back into the well and covered (by fan request) the pilot of Running Wild with Bear Grylls. Bear leads Zef on a two day journey through the woods ... on the hardest difficulty level the show was ready to dish out.
034 The Greatest Showman (2017)
2:09:12The Greatest Showman marks a return to Zac Efron's best genre (musicals) and throws us back in time to the dawn of the circus. There’s talk about trapeze, elephants, and when it’s just called “circus” (and not “the circus”). We also open the biggest mailbag ever and drive Jordan to the verge of delirium with game after game. Is The Greatest Showman our greatest episode? Listen and find out!
033 The Disaster Artist (2017)
1:49:35After months of waiting, #ZacAttack is finally back with a brand new episode! Turns out, maybe we should have kept waiting. We all love The Room, and we all love the fact that Zac Efron is (undeniably) the best part of The Disaster Artist, but this movie goes wrong in so many ways. To make sure we did our very best in covering this movie, The Room, and the magic that is Tommy Wiseau, Joey and Joe Two brought in Chris from Now and Again to talk about the history of The Room, its journey from movie to cult classic, as well as the book and movie versions of The Disaster Artist. Then, as we do every time, we play game after game, and even dive into the mailbag to find a wonderful surprise! In the end, Chris-R is all of us, and we are all Chris-R.
032 The Zeffies!
