With not much going on, there sure is a lot going on. We go gaga over the new Prometheus trailer. We have (row)three theatrical reviews to cover today and we touch down in Iran before cruising over to Jump Street and then we get our ass to Mars. We take our time, so bear with us and feel free to skip around the show but beware the full spoiler-discussion of A Separation – see the well deserved Oscar winning film before listening to that segment.
Kurt waxes ecstatically about the packaging and presentation of the new Special Edition BATTLE ROYALE DVD/BLU set. Hunger Games looms on the horizon.
Technically there was no show last week and the side effect of doing an Anniversary Clip-Show is that this week we have a lengthy Watch List to dive into. Watch out for the quick sand, subway squatters, slimey lawyers, Nick Cage as an Atlantic City Cop and Dennis Hopper’s chainsaw wielding antics! With this much off-beat violence, the show could be hazardous to your health. But feel free to indulge in your (Miami)vices and jump in feet first. You. Are. Invited.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
