In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-hosts Bryant Dillon and Claire Thorne participate in a thorough discussion regarding Point Break (1991) in light of the film's 30th anniversary, with topics including the whether the film is a "good" or "bad" movie, the worldview of the bank-robbing "Ex-Presidents," the unique and seductive relationship between Swayze's Bodhi and Keanu Reevers' Johnny Utah, and more.
