It is festival time in Minneapolis and Turkey time in Canada and nobody bothered to go see Frankenweenie. Gamble joins us to moan about how thin the premise of Taken 2 is stretched, and Kurt recommends the Ron Fricke Baraka sequel Samsara, but neither have too much to say about either film. More time is spent on Homework grading this week, and the grading gets a little harsh at times. The Watch List covers Mean Girls, The Hole, Morgan Spurlock, James McTeigue and Bill O’Reilly. All of this put together equals less than two hours; so wherever you are, stand up and give us a hand for brevity!
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
