Robocop Drinking Game with Kevin Brueck – Movie Buzz

Kevin Brueck joins CineFix to get violently drunk to a violent movie: the classic Robocop.


Cinefix Reacts To Lex Luthor Casting

The news that that the actor best known for playing Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network has been cast to play another genius billionaire in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie.

What do you think of this bit of casting news? Do you think one turn as a billionaire deserves another? Who would you pick instead? Or who do YOU think would have been an (even) worse choice?


Egg Russian Roulette with David Beckham

Jimmy and David Beckham take turns smashing a carton of eggs on their heads. Eight are hard-boiled, four are not.

  1. Happy February!

  2. Need another Lex Luthor candidate, If you want someone young lookin, get Michael Rosenbaum. Or shave Clancy Brown’s hair off.

    • Eisenberg is capable of playing the same kind of lex as rosenbaum did… neither are intimidating

    • I agree. Michael would be the perfect choice for Lex Luthor. Get rid of Jesse Eisenberg.

  3. Hipster X-Men/Batman is cool LOL.

    I’m down for a Gambit solo or maybe a Gambit/Rogue feature. Not sure about Channing Tatum, but I can be open minded about it.

    @ A. Ocasio, why are you always talking about weird sh** on the podcast? LMAO

  4. Gerry Duggan looks like Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon morphed into one person lol

  5. I thought they were going with Bryan Cranston as their Lex Luthor.

    • Nope, he was just rumoured and to be honest, I’m glad they didn’t pick him.

      He’s a good actor but not that great (saying that, I got bored of Breaking Bad midway through season 1 and was never much of a fan of Malcolm In The Middle save for the Francis parts, those scenes were genuinely funny).

      I was hoping for Joaquin Phoenix but I guess we got Jesse Eisenberg.

  6. is the warriors trailer real?is there a remake?

  7. I can see Jess doing a great Luthor, he is more then capable of making the role work.
    It’s Ledger allover again, people freaked out when he was supposed to do Joker.
    Maybe he should bulk up a tad, but acting wise he can do Lex Luthor.
    Would’ve gone wit Phoenix myzelf but Jess is gonna do just fine.

    • Why bulk up? That’s what the power suit is for.

  8. I am surprised Fox isn’t going to sue them for this, their whole First Class set-up is hipster X-Men.

  9. thank heaven we got a cool X-Men movie to look forward to, cause Batfleck vs Superman gonna suck big time!

  10. Ugh! This movie’s going to be terrible!

  11. Screw this waste of film, I wanna see Dredd 2!
