  1. 1 – The Possession
    2 – Lawless
    3 – Expendables 2
    4 – The Words
    5 – Bourne Legacy
    10 – The Campaign

  2. maybe the shield show will be produced by abc tv and actually air on showtime or hbo? have the higher production value and basically not have to really worry as much about viewers at first.

    • I might be wrong on this (I’m not really an expert on American TV networks), but ABC is owned by Disney, whereas HBO and Showtime isn’t.
      And since Disney now owns Marvel Entertainment outright, it’s pretty much a given that the Marvel shows will air on Disney-owned channels.

  3. Good old Anthony Ocasio and his skipping shows method lol VHS was ok the First story was Great 2nd one was crap 3 was weird the 4th one started out good then hit a M knight and the 5th made no since lol

  4. Since the “vote” button didn’t work for me….. I’m voting this way:


    With a caveat. I think a better idea is to give more passes to the Screen Rant team. Maybe one free pass per month each. And if the BOB loser uses his free pass, THEN the bad movie choice moves up to the third place loser.

    Theoretically, the third place loser can then use his pass…… and then the second place has to watch it…… unless he then chooses to use HIS pass…… and then the winner has to watch his own piece of crap movie …… unless!!…… Well, you get the picture.

    Passing the badness upstream, like a hot potato. Unless you’re out of free passes for the month. Then you’re SOL.

    • We’ve got a real-life Dungeon Master over here. 😉

      Whatever makes me watch less crap!

      • Anthony,

        The thing is, you’ve been pretty nice to each other so far…… except for The Room, which Rob reviewed. There is some really BAD cinema out there. Vampire Diaries? Milo and Otis? Mild cinema is what I call that.

        You’re lucky I’m not on the Screen Rant team.

        I really enjoy hearing you guys beat up on crappy movies. Especially you. All the humor, all the insults, all the crying and gnashing of teeth comes right out. It makes for a more entertaining podcast.

        Have fun. Grab that bad movie experience and cook up some spicy insults to spew on your listeners next week. Go Don Rickles on us. COME ON!!

        I want to be entertained. We all want to be entertained. You’re funny…… Even when I sometimes disagree with you….. I like hearing you get worked up.

    • That could definitely work.

  5. I appreciate you guys not spoiling the Doctor Who premier. I’m trying to avoid all thing DW until it’s premiered in South Africa… and since there isn’t even a date set yet, I suspect that it’s gonna be a tough mission :(

    Box Office Battle:
    1. The Possession
    2. Lawless
    3. The Words
    4. The Expendables
    5. Bourne Legacy
    10. The Campaign

  6. I’ve been re watching Lost again on G4 and remembered how awesome it is.
    Box Office Battle:
    1.The Possession
    3.The Words
    4.Expendables 2
    10.The Campaign

  7. The season 4 of Breaking Bad was too slow for my taste….Season 5 is much better, the pacing was great…and all the development the characters went through..

  8. Is this one on iTunes? its not showing up, and i have been subscribed since the beginning. Btw, I love your cast guys, its the first cast i ever listened to, and it will always be my favorite.

    • Sometimes it’s delayed for me too. Just keep refreshing with the good ‘ol F5 key 😉

  9. anyone think hardy Will get a best supporting actor nod come Oscar time?

    • It’s very unlikely. What it will do is help bolster future performances. The Academy Awards sometimes like people to earn their first nomination, so he’s on the right track.

    • Not for this methinks. He’ll get his due eventually though :)

  10. You can pass….if you stop losing….
    I mean all you have to do is not be last.

    • @ Cody,


  11. I get the reasoning for not making a SHIELD movie, you would use up one of the option for an actor for a movie that isn’t the Avengers and I like the idea of a SHIELD TV show, it would be cool if they went with Alias/Covert Affairs type stuff you could introduce Carol Danvers to maybe introduce Ms. Marvel later in an Avengers movie…

  12. Google Sh*tty movie for Anthony Ocasio and gets Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2, did not know that…

    • LOL, try typing in “I hate it when I lose my” into the google search bar, and check out what the auto-fill comes up with… 😉

      • Haha… “I hate when I lose my black friend in the dark.”

        • And I hate it when my black friends lose me in the snow… 😉

          • Haha I got “i hate it when i lose my white friend in the snow yahoo”

  13. You all completely forgot about the Raider’s of the Lost Ark Imax for your box office battle.

    • I should have mentioned that it’s opening but the movie is only playing in roughly 260 theaters – so not likely to break the top 5.

  14. Skipping through parts of Breaking Bad… I almost got a heart attack when I heard that. Surely you can’t be serious!?

    p.s.: you are doing a great job guys! I’m the process of catching up with all the podcasts (Ep.16 was the last one I listened to) and it’s always great.

    • Glad you’re enjoying the show (and that you agree about Breaking Bad – I don’t know what Anthony was thinking).

  15. 1.The Possesion
    4.The Words
    5.Expendables 2
    10.The Campaigne
