#207: Where in the World is Osama bin Laden? / The Visitor / Summer Movie Preview
This week... Filmspotting previews the glorious popcorn season ahead with a countdown of their Top 5 Most Anticipated Summer Movies. And what says 'summer fun' better than a 'War on Terror' double feature? Adam rolls out his best Rumsfeld impression while Matty conjures his best Condi to chase down Public Enemy #1 with director Morgan Spurlock in his latest documentary, "Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?" Plus, Filmspotting has always admired the work of long-time supporting actor Richard Jenkins. How does the venerable 'that guy' do when given the chance to carry a film in a lead role? Your hosts discuss with a review of "The Visitor," writer/director Tom McCarthy's follow-up to his much beloved debut "The Station Agent."
Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and music by The Scotland Yard Gospel Choircourtesy of Bloodshot Records.

- BIG mistake at the end of the show... confused this weekend's releases with what we were looking to review next week on the show. "Iron Man" and "Made of Honor" open May 2nd. New movies this weekend include "Baby Mama," "Deception" and the new "Harold and Kumar." Sorry.
