This Week: Kevin is as giddy as a school girl with the anticipation of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace in 3D. So much so, he paints his face like Darth Maul and invites Michael Neel, director of The Drive-In Horrorshow to join him in the Magical Studio in the Sky. Together they bemoan the presence of Channing Tatum in films today as well as wonder if Ryan Reynolds can hold up against Denzel Washington in an action movie. They also chat about The Rock’s latest family adventure film, then head into the middle segment to talk about box office and answer a listener email. They also chat about Michael’s anthology horror flick and lay down a Fat Guy Five about absolute crap films that they love. Then it’s the DVD Rundown and a big good-bye for the week.
