This Week: Kevin is awash in love for George Lucas, so he sallies forth to see Red Tails, then an early peek at Haywire. After having a few hopes dashed, he invites Emily Intravia from DeadlyDollsHouse.com and Gleekast to join him to talk about the new movies of the week. They chew the fat about George Lucas hits and misses, Steven Soderbergh’s way of redefining a genre and why British actress Kate Beckinsale sounds like she’s doing a fake British accent in the Underworld movies. They also talk about the Oscar bait flick Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close before going into box office analysis and a special George Lucas Fat Guy Five.
