This Week: Fully in the wake of The Avengers afterglow, Kevin invites fellow podcaster and movie blogger Rudie Obias (or as Kevin fondly refers to him, Rudio-O!) into the Magical Studio in the Sky to get all creepy and gothic and stuff. They geek out a little bit more about The Avengers, but soon talk about the latest Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration, Dark Shadows. After dissecting this modern vampire comedy, they move into the infamous middle segment where they look at box office and ponder the question as to whether The Avengers will score more than $100 million in its second weekend. Using fewer run-on sentences than this summary, they also give a Fat Guy Five about great cinematic vampires. Then it’s some DVD and Blu-ray recommendations before heading off into the night.
