  1. Nice pcast on Hunger Games, etc. A 3rd best of all time revenues on opening weekend is a HUGE feat and illustrates your ‘the story matters’ post earlier though strong cast across the board; I will definitely have to catch in theaters at some point.

    A side note- Tank briefly mentioned “Goon” a Jay Baruchel collaboration with Sean William Scott (Baruchel and his cowriter Evan Goldberg of Superbad). Based on the book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey (by Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith) is directed by Canadian Michael Dowse.
    For what it is a sports story about an enforcer (player paid to punch/ protect teammates) who’s a real nice guy, it definitely is entertaining start to finish. This film is raunchy & very violent (some hilarious) with some nudity & brief drug reference. Two parts Slapstick, one part Waterboy, and half a Mighty Duck. Rotten Tomatoes gives this a 79% freshness rating. [didn’t know where else to mention this movie – it was on Universal HD 3/28 back to back to back.] This is an enjoyable film especially if you like sports movies.

    • I’m sure I’ll catch it eventually, as it’s new… I just checked and its not playing locally near me this weekend. I like Sean William Scott, looking forward to the return of Stiffler in American Reunion. Thought he was the lone birght spot of “Cop Out”

      Probably have to wait til its a “Now Showing on Cable” to check it out now.

      I appreciate the compliments on the podcast. Glad you enjoyed it… we’re trying to raise our game slowly but surely. 😀

  2. Good battle choices. I don’t really have any others to add…
    I guess there’s the battle in Paths of Glory, which is notable since only one side is ever shown, yet it still holds a lot of intensity. Spartacus had some good battle scenes, and the sea battle in Ben Hur was pretty great stuff.
    But I think that Helm’s Deep probably takes the crown here.

    • Those three Lord of the Rings movie have some of the best battle scenes ever filmed. Just spectacular.

      “Helms Deep” gives new meaning to epic filmmaking. I mean, incredible. 😀 Good choice…

      I have to see “Paths of Glory”, I took a beating on that last week in the war movie thread, as I’m sure you recall. LOL
