The hosts review:

  • Reminiscing about the joy that was The Hobbit (The recording, not necessarily the movie).
  • Watching a movie, sitting in a recliner, being waited on… this is the good life!
  • Jennifer Lawrence is talented, don’t blame The Hunger Games.
  • The many faces of Robert DeNiro.
  • Two likes and one not-so-much.
  • Discussing Paul Haggis’ career.  He’s come a long way from The Richie Rich/Scoobie Doo Show.
  • Criticisms on how to rub a drug dealer.
  • How does a person respond to such extreme circumstances?
  • Elizabeth Banks… Olivia Wilde… Elizabeth Banks… Olivia Wilde… what to do?
  • How bada$$ is Liam Neeson? Come on!
  • Brian Dennehy is AWESOME.
  • Was she really a murderer?  Was the recreation what really happened?
  • Darrell would have preferred that scene be cut from the end.
  • Should the detective have cared more?
  • Darrell depressed Tony/Deuce.
  • Tony liked the Lara/spinning car scene, as it seemingly jumped out from a mostly sedate movie.
  • Once John’s plan was set, there wasn’t anything that was going to derail it.

Trivial bits ‘n pieces:

  • The “bump key” procedure Crowe used actually does work on cylinder locks.
  • The phone and fax numbers on the lab work are the real numbers for Med-Health Services in Monroeville, PA.
  • Mark Isham, Haggis’ regular collaborator, didn’t compose this score due to their falling out over Haggis’ very public break from the Church of Scientology, of which Isham is still a member.
