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


The Islander.  Nancy concludes her interview with David Jacobs, the creator of both Dallas and Knots Landing.  David reveals the remainder of his desert island picks.


Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.  We're not even half way through the summer and already a second film about time travel is playing in theaters.  The unavoidable question that has to be asked is, "If you could travel back in time and only avoid seeing one time travel film, which one would it be?"  And no fair picking Marmaduke.  Just because time seems to stand still, doesn't make it a time travel movie.

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

It's back to school for show and tell as the Misfits share some of the things they learned at the movies.


Robin Hood.  Although there's no robbing the rich and giving to the poor in this new version, when it's over, your wallet will definitely be ten dollars or so lighter and you might very well feel like you've been robbed.

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