Filmspotting #154: The Host / Blades of Glory / The Lookout / Top 5 Career Reboots
Friday, 30 March 2007 01:00

March 30: Bong Joon-ho's "The Host" has been picking up critical accolades since its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2006. Bong's satirical monster movie has finally come ashore here in the States, but Adam and Sam are approaching the film with caution -- encouraged by the praise, but a little skeptical that the movie will have more to offer than it's multi-tentacled, multi-million dollar CGI creature.

Also on the show: One-sided reviews of the new Will Ferrell/Jon Heder figure skating comedy "Blades of Glory" and "The Lookout," the new thriller from writer/director Scott Frank starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. [Due to scheduling conflicts, Adam and Sam had to flip a coin for these reviews ... listen to find out who lost.]

Plus, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre, and Filmspotting's Top 5 Career Reboots -- Adam and Sam stage an intervention for ten lucky actors.

Music by National Beekeepers Society.
