Emphatic for the cinematic!

Inspired by an obnoxious "texter," Steve Head and John Black discuss what should be done to stop cell phone users during movies, and the protocol for booting these selfish, incosiderate jerks (particularly texters!) from a theater. We're at our wit's end. These people must go.

Receiving the full film review treatment is Guilermo del Toro's Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and the comedy Our Idiot Brother, starring Paul Rudd.

Also up for discussion is the new documentary Chasing Madoff, and the new home video releases: Akira Kurosawa's High & Low, Jodie Foster's The Beaver, the BBC's Top Gear 16, Blitz starring Jason Statham and Little Big Soldier starring Jackie Chan.

And Steve (having experienced a 5-hour screening of Cleopatra during the Harvard Film Archive's Joseph L. Mankiewicz retrospective) and John (who's seen the film *6* times) reminice about Taylor & Burton's epic 1963 debacle.

Can't say we didn't warn you. But then, we all know what to expect from Michael Bay, right? So John and I endured the mega-mechanical CGI onslaught of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. All 156 minutes of it. Do we really have to explain why this is such a giant chunk of Hasbro-mash, you might ask? Sure, the movie is critic proof, but it's our job. And we will not shy away from it. We might cower and squirm in pain.Beyond that, the energizing act of eviscerating a movie is fun, and Michael Bay is an easy target. This is a pretty much a giant turkey shoot.

We did however enjoy Larry Crowne, which Tom Hanks wrote, produced, directed and stars in. It's a wonderful character-driven film, with Julia Roberts delivering her best performance in years. Do see it.

For our picks of the week, John says White Lightnin', starring Edward Hogg and Carrie Fisher, is worth a look. And we both agree the Criterion Collection's release of Kiss Me Deadly (1955) is truly a must see.

We recorded this episode outdoors, sitting on a bench in Boston Common - where there happened to be some sort of Anime festival taking place; a lot of college students dressed as anime characters. And they cheered from time to time. So... our apologies for any obtrusive and/or amusing background noises. Stuff happens on the Common, you know?

Joining John Black and Steve Head this week is film critic Greg Vellante. Greg writes for the Eagle Tribune, a New England daily. And you can find all of his reviews at GregVellante.com. This week they lament Pixar's dive into cold commercialism with Cars 2. Sure, Cars was Pixar's arguably least well received film. And, at least by Pixar's standards, it did alright at the box office. But the real money here is in its merchandising. It's billions, people. Billions. We also discuss the new Cameron Diaz comedy Bad Teacher. To enjoy it, we needed to willingly suspend our disbelief. But that didn't happen. We did, however, enjoy the new Pixar short Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation, which plays before Cars 2.

For our picks of the week, John and Steve recommend the documentary American: The Bill Hicks Story, Steve can't say enough about the comedy Cedar Rapids, and Greg says you definitely have to check out Louie: Season One.

They also attempt to figure out Terrence Malick's Palme d'Or winner The Tree of Life, which is now playing at The Coolidge Corner Theater and Kendal Square.

For our Picks of the Week, Steve explain why United Artists' Harry in Your Pocket (1973), starring James Coburn and Michael Sarrazin, is worth checking out. And John recommends Kino International's release of five new films from documentarian Nicolas Philibert, including Louvre City (1990), In the Land of the Deaf (1992), and Every Little Thing (1997).

It's all X-Men this week, as Bob Chipman (a.k.a. MovieBob and The Game Overthinker, and contributor to Escapist Magazine) joins John and me to discuss director Matthew Vaughn's excursion into the world of Marvel: X-Men: First Class. So many characters. So many mini-plot-lines. It seemed a recipe for a $160-million dollar mess. But... well... things ain't so messy. Turns out this darn X-Men prequel is perhaps the best of the lot. This we attempt to explain in 54 minutes.

For our picks of the week, John and I both admit our amazement for Fumihiko Sori's TO, the newly released Blu-ray/DVD anime set from Funimation. As for a couple more new titles, I say you've gotta check out director Leslie Zemeki's documentary about the history of burlesque in America,  Behind the Burly Q; John says the Sofia Loren Award Collection 4-disc set is an absolute Must See, in particular, her 1964 film Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow; and Bob says the Nicolas Cage actioner Drive Angry is all the over-the-top goodness it was intended to be.

Steve Head and John Black discuss the (sort of but not really) new comedy The Hangover Part II, and Woody Allen's likeable farce Midnight in Paris.

For our Picks of the Week, John says the new David Byrne rockumentary Ride, Rise, Roar is worth your time. And they both agree that Jason Robard's 1965 film, and Best Picture nominee, A Thousand Clowns is a nice find among MGM's new online-only retail offerings. John also recommends David Niven's 1975 flick Old Dracula.

Much to our surprise, the ever-dependable John Black couldn't make this recording session. Fortunately, film critic Sean Burns (The Improper Bostonian and Philadelphia Weekly) valiantly stepped-up to fill in. And so our Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas episode lives!  Terry Gilliam's 1998 adaption of Hunter S. Thompson's "failed experiment in Gonzo journalism" was recently upgraded to Blu-ray by Criterion. And we go on and on about it as, you know, fans do.

Plus we discuss Kelly Reichardt's Meek’s Cutoff - a film we agree needs more love at the box office.  Do see it if you can.

Joining John Black and Steve Head this week is Meg Quinn, film critic with Gatehouse Media's Ipswich Chronicle. We discuss all the goodness that is Bridesmaids, the latest product from the Judd Apatow factory. And, I must say, one of his best films to date. (Thank you, Ms Wiig.)

Also in this episode, we talk about the new film Hesher, starring Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, and Everything Must Go, starring Will Farrell. Meg and I aren't so keen on Everthing Must Go, but John explains why the movie is "well worth seeing, especially if you had any addictions."

And for our picks of the week, we can't say enough good things about Jonathan Demme's Something Wild (1986) And we can only say a couple good things, if that, about Richard Lester's How I Won the War (1967) co-starring John Lennon.

SPOILER WARNING: (Do note the capital letters and bold-faced type of the prior two words) The interview contains lengthy discussion about the ending of Source Code; in particular, Mr. Jones' own interpretation of the repercussions of the film's ending. That being the case, we decided to wait until after the film's release to publish this interview, with the hope that many of you have seen Source Code and that this discussion might help answer any lingering questions.

On hand again to help Steve Head and John Black consider the merits of Zach Snyder's Sucker Punch is Bob Chipman, a.k.a. MovieBob and The Game Overthinker, and contributor to Escapist Magazine.  They go to town on Sucker Punch with a 70-minute episode in which they agree, disagree, laugh, cry, chide, and fall in love all over again.

For picks of the week, they discuss the films of Andy Sidaris, as featured in Mill Creek Entertainment's new 12-movie set Girls, Guns and G-strings. And then Warner Bros.' newly announced Blu-ray edition of Brian DiPalma's Scarface takes center stage.

Spoiler Alert: In the discussion of Sucker Punch, spoiler material abounds between 30:30 and 32:30.

Editors note: In the discussion of Scarface, the Debbie Harry song we can't recall is "Push Push."

This episode was recorded at Panera Bread, next to the Regal Fenway 13 Theater in Boston. So as always, the conversation is spurred by coffee, muffins and sandwiches - which helps. And that's why there's the clickity-clacking of plates and silverware you're

This week, your hosts Steve Head and John Black discuss the new Nicolas Cage actioner, Drive Angry 3D, and Farrelly brothers' comedy, Hall Pass, starring Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis.

For our picks of the week, John selects 1957's Sweet Smell of Success on Criterion, and I select two titles from the filmography of director Peter Yates, who passed away last month: the 1969 Dustin Hoffman/Mia Farrow drama John and Mary and the 1973 Boston crime film The Friends of Eddie Coyle, starring Robert Mitchum.

On March 2nd and 3rd, in tribute to Peter Yates, the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, Ma, will screen 35mm prints of two of his films: the quintessential Steve McQueen film Bullitt (1968), and the rarely seen British film Robbery (1967), starring Stanley Baker.  Visit brattlefilm.org for more information and to buy tickets.

Our objective: discuss the new Anthony Hopkins thriller The Rite and the Javier Bardem melodrama Biutiful. Then John and I discuss the Jason Statham/Ben Foster actioner The Mechanic - in which I (attempt to) explain The Mechanic's unintentional homoeroticism. Such fun.

We then offer our picks of the week. I recommend the new Blu-ray release of Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull. Peg says The Last Exorcism and the Red Riding Trilogy are worth your time. And John implores you to view Man in a Suitcase, which is also new to DVD.

Lately John and I have been favoring the "live" recording process (we go to a restaurant or coffee shop, find a table, set down the recorder and begin), in part because Skype can be, um ... kinda problematic. And eating and drinking while talking comes easy to us. So for the time being we're sticking with it. Live recording, that is. And eating and drinking, which I'm told is helpful.

Again this week we recorded the show at Panera Bread, next to the AMC Fenway 10 theater in Boston. The films discussed are Little Fockers, Gulliver's Travels and the Norweigan flick Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.

Plus we offer our picks of the week. For me it's Cyrus, I'm Still Here and Troll 2 on Blu-ray. For John it's A&E's Billy the Exterminator: Season One.

The total running time is about 1 hour.
