April 13: Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino grew up watching double-bills of made-on-the-cheap genre movies at grimy theatres in LA and Texas. Now they've each made a film for the b-movie pantheon -- "Planet Terror" and "Death Proof," respectively -- and together they've created a '70s-era drive-in experience called "Grindhouse." Described by Tarantino as a "horror film double feature," "Grindhouse" may have been made in a spirit of friendship and mutal appreciation, but in Adam and Sam's hands, the film has been reduced to a street fight -- with only one director left standing.
Also on the show: A review of the new film "Disturbia," and Adam's brief conversation with the film's star, Shia LaBeouf. Plus, Massacre Theatre, a discussion of F.W. Murnau's silent classic "Sunrise," and Filmspotting's 'Bruce Campbell Memorial' Top 5 B-Movie Actors list. Thanks to Vince Rotolo from the B-Movie Cast for his contribution to this week's Top 5!
