  1. – I think this my first favorite episode of 2012. I liked how the Rants and raves was longer than the review.

    – I predict Rob Keyes will be the the Box Office Champ of 2012.

    – You guys talking about ‘Haywire’ has me interested in seeing it but I’ll wait for it to hit netflix.

    -Also I want to get into this box office battle
    1.)The Grey
    3.)One for the Money
    5.)Man on the Ledge

    The people I know like Liam Neeson in whatever he does (EX:Taken,Unknown)
    I think there’s not enough ads for Man On The Ledge and people have no idea what it is.

    • You may totally be right Frank and if you are… you’ll get final say in our review of – well, we haven’t decided yet but I’ll let you know.

      • Thanks but I just want to guess the box office. Final say is too much power lol

        • Fair enough. I actually like the idea of holding a reader competition each week – no prize or anything but maybe a shout out on the podcast.

          I might mention that next time.

  2. I really liked the scene of Gina (or Rachel Weisz? lol) sprinting towards McGregor just before she kicked his ass :) Yea she could have just shot him but I honestly didn’t even think of that until you guys brought it up lol

    And that scene in the diner really hooked my girlfriend into being on the edge of her seat for the whole film (I really wish I hadn’t spoiled it for myself by watching that clip online). It felt real and gritty.

    Nice podcast guys.

  3. Hydra?! No way! If it’s Hydra, it will suck. CA and the Hollowing Commandos took down Hydra, so the Avengers have to face off against something much more dangerous.

  4. Lol, Ben’s a racist, lol! That part had me weak (and the Jewish Capt. America from last week? Hilarious!)… But seriously, I totally agree in that however you feel about a subject should be totally independent from your technical analysis of a film. I mean, if it’s a bad movie, it’s a bad movie.

    Lucas, Lucas, Lucas. Please just…stop. Do something else…

    I had my sights set on Haywire and this review actually made me a little cautious going in. I think i’ll like it though; I don’t feel any kinda way about Gina Carano/Rachel Weisz…
