The Misfits take a final look back at the January and February movies.  How did the big ego/small expectation, almost direct-to-video, and test screening flops do?


6 'n 90.  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.


The Islander Part 2.  Nancy concludes her interview with character actor James Karen, who shares his final movie picks to take with him on a desert island.


Shutter Island.  An updated Dr. Caligari, or just an over-blown, big budget excuse for a bunch of extras to do some gardening?


Cop Out.  It's about two cops who spend most of the film not being cops.  It's a comedy without any comedy.  And it's a buddy picture without any buddies.  What does that leave?  Listen to the review and find out.

The Islander is where guests are interviewed by Nancy and asked to pick the ten films they would take with them to a desert island.  Nancy's guest this week is character actor James Karen.  Among his many TV appearances are roles on  Seinfeld and The Larry Sanders Show, and on the big screen he has appeared in Poltergeist, The Return of the Living Dead, Frankenstein Meets the Spacemonster, and many other films.


Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.  What's the point of being an Olympian if your kid can call you on the carpet for being busy with God stuff instead of being a good parent?  The only thing that could possibly be lamer is taking an elevator to Olympus.


The new Wolfman movie is an uneasy mix of yesterday and today.  Is it an effort doomed to leave gorehounds disappointed and fans of the original film frustrated?

Thanks for listening!  We'll be back in two weeks.
