Argo-Singin' in the Rain

Filmspotting likes reviewing movies, but what the hosts really want to do is direct. Themselves. Inspired by their discussion of Ben Affleck's "Argo," Adam and Josh countdown the Top 5 Movies Directed by Their Stars. Plus, they answer the age-old question, 'Who’s the private dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks?' You’re damn right the Blaxploitation Marathon begins with "Shaft."
