July 25: Prepare to be spoiled. In an unprecedented venture, the esteemed Michael Phillips of the World's Greatest Newspaper joins the boys for a spoiler edition review of "The Dark Knight." Yes, if you are one of the six people who have not seen Christopher Nolan's film and do not wish to have any of its surprises revealed... DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS REVIEW. We're serious. Everything in the film is fair game for discussion. Just forward to roughly the 23 minute mark to continue with the rest of the spoiler free show that includes Massacre theater, music by Spoon, and Listener Feedback.
Plus, Filmspotting welcomes back male model, media mogul, new dad and A.V. Club critic Scott Tobias to help us sort out our Top 5 Movies of the Year So Far. Along with the best, we also find time to list a few of the year's worst. Spoiler alert! Uwe Boll makes his way onto one of them.
Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre, music by Spoon and Matty's Movie Minute returns for a review of "Step Brothers."
