#236: Quantum of Solace / Let the Right One In / Top 5 Turkeys of 2008
From the hidden F.I.L.M.S.P.O.T.T.I.N.G. lair, located deep inside a dormant volcano buried beneath the floor of Lake Michigan, the two criminal masterminds known as Adam and Matty weigh in on the latest installment of the James Bond franchise, "Quantum of Solace." Will your diabolical hosts approve of director Marc Forster's continued reinvention of everyone's favorite playboy-spy? Or will it leave them shaken and stirred, clamoring for less Bourne, Jason Bourne?
Also, hoping to capitalize on the growing vampire zeitgeist sweeping America, Matty gives you a taste of his upcoming roller-skating musical treatment of the chupacabra as the boys mull over the finer points of dealing with the Swedish undead with a discussion of "Let the Right One In" -- the "other" teenage vampire movie currently making the rounds satisfying America's growing bloodlust for all things Dracula.
"Mr. Shyamalan, thanks for coming, your seat is over there next to the guy in the Skywalker Ranch dungarees" ... In honor of Thanksgiving, Adam and Matty roll out a cornucopia of incompetence as they announce their Top 5 Turkeys of 2008. "You see that movie goat?"
