June 20: Eschewing the trend adopted by seemingly every other media outlet this week, Filmspotting steadfastly refuses to incorporate the phrase "Missed It By That Much" during its brief review of "Get Smart," the action-comedy starring Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Terrence Stamp and Alan Arkin. In fact, the boys practically refuse to discuss "Get Smart" at all, opting instead to bring you some Overlooked DVD Picks.
It seems like only yesterday Adam and Matty were first treated to the post-apocalyptic beads of He-man sweat dangling from the bronzed barreled chest of Chuck Heston in "The Omega Man." Time really flies when you're living in zombie/drone/space-ebola/Bruce Dern-filled dystopias. The lads honor the best of their recently wrapped '70s Sci-Fi Marathon by meting out the coveted Damn Dirty Ape Awards.
And ... apropos of absolutely nothing ... Filmspotting rolls out its Top 5 Actor/Director Duos. That's just the way we roll.
Also on the show: Matty's Movie Minute, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and music by Biirdie.
