7:50 Gregory Ellwood founder of www.hitfix.com. Origin Story: Met Jack in 1998 after he had come back from Sundance for Bill Condon’s film: Gods and Monsters.







13:00 Greg Ellwood’s seminal childhood film is Star Trek Two:The Wrath of Khan but both Jack and Greg Ellwood believe that Star Trek Three is underrated.



14:00 Star Trek Three, The Search for Spock. Shot in Golden Gate Park, coffin was intact.





17:00 Was the villain in Star Trek Three “bad enough”? Movie villains, living up to previous movies in sequels-James Bond “Skyfall”, Batman, Star Trek.



19:30 Sam Mendes, Away We Go-Bill Condon loved that movie! Neither Greg is a fan.



21:00 Greg’s dream about new Batman movie, had a dream that is was TERRIBLE. Bane discussion. Bane’s old man voice controversy? Has the public been misled about his voice? Tom Hardy, actor: Batman, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Inception.



30:00 Bane’s mask discussion. Bondage gear? Big in the 90’s? Mexican wrestler?





31:50 Michelle Pfeiffer vs. Anne Hathaway (Catwoman). Batman Returns, Greg loves-”stealth hero”. Greg says “Michelle will not be topped by Anne Hathaway-there will be none of this.”











32:40 Jack discusses Christopher Walken’s Max Shreck in Batman Returns:











33:00 Michelle Pfeiffer Oscar talk. Do we remember who wins Oscars? List of movies that have won Oscars. Oscar database FYI: http://awardsdatabase.oscars.org/ampas_awards/BasicSearchInput.jsp





38:00 Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Huge fan of Julie Newmar’s Catwoman.Greg Yolen says Anne Hathaway is not sexy, Julia Roberts wholesome charming “America’s Sweetheart” vibe. No Michelle Pfeiffer sexpot vibe.





41:00 Only movie you’ve ever walked out of? Kevin Smith walked out of Flintstones. Greg Yolen, Stealing Harvard. Film Festival discussion.





44:00 Geek subject! Avengers trailer comes out. Breaks record for views. Greg Ellwood’s take on Captain America-not charismatic enough.








49:30 James Marsden as Cyclops (Great!) Very underrated in Enchanted.





51:00 Storm not a character, bad wigs in X-Men. Greatest line in film? “Do you know what happens to a toad in an electrical storm? The same thing that happens to everyone else.” Best ever Blade quote.





52:41 Back to Anne Hathaway costume. Mary Tyler Moore Pantsuit?





55:00 Marlon Wayans calls. Brother kicked off New Girl.





56:00 Batman spoiler? Daughter of character in original movie in Dark Knight Rises?





56:35 Kinsey, Liam Neeson discussion. Crime that he wasn’t nominated for that role.
