NOTE: Please excuse the audio quality of the episode. We’ve been trying Skype. And although there are positives to using Skype, the variable audio quality is certainly a negative. We’re intent to fix this as soon as possible.

Episode #45: ‘Red,’ ‘Conviction’ and ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’

Does Woody Allen still have something to say? Does Juliette Lewis have herself an Oscar-worthy performance? Does Bruce Willis go too far with self-parody?

These profound and important questions we ponder in our brand new audio oddity, the ingeniously titled Episode #45.

Red, Conviction and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger are our topics of delight and distress.

And for our home video picks of the week, I say Ken Burn’s The 10th Inning, Neil Jordan’s Ondine, and NBC’s Modern Family: Season One are worth your time. Then John speaks kindly of Suck, the indie comedy vampire flick featuring indie band vampires. Key words: indie and vampire.

You can click and play now and feel the love, or download it. The choice is yours. We can do this the easy way or the hard way. You won’t like the hard way.

Hey all, we’ve got a nice giveaway for you today: the CD soundtrack for the new movie Jack Goes Boating. I saw it last week. Liked it a lot more than John did (which we will discuss in episode #44). And I digged the music, particularly the Bill Evans and Evan Laurie tracks. So, I inquired with the studio’s pr people about doing a giveaway, and they were gracious enough to provide us with three copies of the soundtrack.
