#241: Che / Steven Soderbergh Interview / Top 5 2008 Blowout
This week's four-hour roadshow production of Filmspotting -- OK, 90-minute roadshow production -- is brought to you without an intermission, though it does feature musical interludes from Ezra Furman and the Harpoons. Adam and Matty recorded their epic review of director Steven Soderbergh's two-part, 257-minute film "Che," starring Benicio Del Toro as the legendary revolutionary, on a raft floating just outside of Key West, Florida. Adam then returned to the studio to interview Mr. Soderbergh, and if you turn the volume up real high, you can hear the drool dangling from Adam's chin. Plus, the guys sweep out the old with their Top 5 2008 Blowout, highlighting some more of the best and worst of the past year -- reports concur that "Speed Racer" figures prominently on both lists.

- Please don't correct me on sui generis. Nobody seems to agree on the pronunciation.
- Everyone does seem to agree that Mila Kunis is pronounced Mee-la, not My-la, and yet that's what I keep saying. My apologies to Ms. Kunis, her family, friends and fans.
- We pick a great Massacre Theatre scene from one of the greatest films ever... and don't get the dialogue right. Wrong script online and no time to check it before we recorded unfortunately.
- That's right, "Hounddog" was so bad it's my worst film of 2007 (when I saw it) and 2008 (when it was finally released).
