  1. Another awesome episode. I said it before and I’ll say it again Rob Keyes = Box Office Champ 2012.

    OMG I WON!!!
    Okay this week is a little tough but I’ll try.
    1.)Woman in Black
    3.)The Grey
    4.)One for the Money

    Tie Breaker 10.)Man On A Ledge

    You guys gotta review ‘The Vow’.A.)because it’s going to be #1 at the box and B.)It’s got classic podcast episode written all over it.

    Also Anthony
    Why u no rant or rave about the Chicken McBites?

    • Thank you, sir!

  2. ****The Grey Spoilers Ahead!!****

    I had the same problems with The Grey as you guys did. I really enjoyed it despite some plot points (like the rope they made being able to support their weight and the guy just giving up on surviving) but I expected there to be some more retaliation from the group of guys in which they pick off some of the wolves in creative ways like with traps. Kind of like the stand that Arnie and his team make in Predator when they realize they’re being killed one at a time.

    Kofi is right though the marketing really planted some bad ideas into peoples’ heads where they expect Neeson to be beating up wolves. Granted that part of the trailer really is visually awesome looking – had it been left out of the trailer people would have been fine with how the film ended I think. Overall it’s still a great movie to see especially for January.

    Great podcast guys

  3. Any of you guys notice that Sam Worthington’s hair style and look in Man on a Ledge looks like a skinny version of Nils Bjurman in Fincher’s Girl…Tattoo???

    • Seconded.

      That picture is so awkward.

  4. ok here is my picks:
    1) Woman In Black
    2) Chronicle
    3) Big Miracle
    4) The Grey
    5) One for the Money

    Tie Breaker: 10) Haywire

  5. Here are my picks:

    1.)Woman in Black
    3.)The Grey
    4.)One for the Money

    10.) Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness

    That’s how I do it…

    • You do know you can’t win the reader shout-out and last word in the review, right? 😉

      • Just because I happen to have the same name as the endearing gentleman in the podcast, I am actually a different person.

        • Anthony Ocasio is awesome and does what he wants.

          • …and it only cost me $20, a bag of Skittles and some Crunch ‘n Munch to pay for that type of support. 😉
