  1. Well, now we know Whedon IS going to be helming the Marvel cinematic universe.

  2. Cloud Atlas sound insane and those images are even more insane.
    I didn’t even know about the movie… definitely interested now.

  3. Robs plan for FOX is better than FOX’s plan of just thow a bunch of stuff on the wall & see what works and X-Men Last Stand not counting would be a good idea plus no Wolverine origins either…

    Seeing X-Men First Class I think Vaughn knows what he’s dong with X-Men but I am really interested in seeing how they are going to make a complicated story such as Futures Past work but it should be interesting especially with the messed up continuity issues, might be the thing that could make the movies tie together…

    I think it was smart that Marvel would try to trade for some Silver Surfer & Galactus, Fox giving up those two key characters in Fantastic Four universe is bad idea but smart if they pulled the offer back, just let Daredevil go back to Marvel and in a few years cable series or movie since they got so many things in the hopper…

    • I’m waiting for Bryan Singer to let me produce 😉

  4. I also watched Total Recall 1990,(I really need to re watch this, I don’t remember a thing about it) as a kid and that was mind blowing back then (that much I remember) compared to TR 2012 – No suspense, surprises, but some cool action and sci-fi concepts, that’s it.

    • Yah, that was my feeling about it too. Definitely a missed opportunity.

  5. Box Office battle:
    1. Bourne Legacy
    2. The Campaign
    3. The Dark Knight Rises
    4. Total Recall
    5. Hope Springs
    10. Step Up: Revolution

  6. Enjoyed the podcast (always)! And thanks for the honorable mention.

    I look forward to the sound of gnashing teeth from a northern direction, due to someone watching “The Room.”

    Also thanks for the heads up regarding Total Recall. I’m glad i gave it a miss.

    • Ugh. Don’t remind me!

    • Thanks for the note – I’ve passed it on to Rob and the guys!

  7. Supernatural ends when sam and dead kill every monster ever or become monsters and kill each other.

    my guess
    1 bourne legacy
    2 rises
    3 campaign
    4 total recall
    5 wimpy kid
    10 spiderman

    • dean not dead, jeez I suck….

  8. Box Office Battle:
    1. The Bourne Legacy
    2. Total Recall
    3. The Dark Knight Rises
    4. The Campaign
    5. Hope Springs
    10. Kevin Hartt: Laugh at my Pain

    • Boom! Kevin Hart is making his triumphant return!

  9. Huge big ups to Ocasio for staying true with Daredevil.
    Forget Affleck starring though, let him DIRECT it!!!

    • Hah, I don’t think Affleck will touch Daredevil ever again.


    • Cheers!

  10. Definitely going to pass on Recall then.

    1. The Bourne Legacy
    2. The Campaign
    3. The Dark Knight Rises
    4. Hope Springs
    5. Total Recall

    10. Ted

  11. Finally, the box-office battle is back! Here’s my pick:

    1. The Dark Knight Rises
    2. The Bourne Legacy
    3. Total Recall
    4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
    5. The Campaign
    10. The Amazing Spider-Man

  12. Hey guys! I love the Podcasts…. they are very entertaining! I just have one complaint…. it always sounds like Kofi is eating something. Can we get Kofi to eat before or after the Podcasts?

    • HAH!

      I try to tell him. That and the BREATHING.

    • You wouldn’t believe (or maybe you would), the amount of lip-smacking I actually managed to edit out this week.

      I’m pretty sure Kofi was enjoying a Costco sized jar of Laffy Taffy this week.

      • Haha! I believe you…

      • I believe in the fine art of podcast vérité, you philistines.

  13. Could one of you watch midnight son and tell me your thoughts on it.
    I thought it was pretty good and is a vampire movie that doesnt…er.. suck.
