Before he dives into Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kevin also reviews Clouds of Sils Maria, The Salt of the Earth and Hyena.

Kevin Carr’s DVD Rundown for 09/11/12
This Week: For the big Easter weekend special, Kevin invites Dame Elisabeth Rappe back into the Magical Studio in the Sky for a marathon podcasting session. After discussing the finer points of dating in Mass Effect, they chat about Titanic 3D and American Reunion. After dropping some swear words in the radio segments, Elisabeth gets tight-lipped for the infamous middle segment, but the conversation goes completely off the rails. Topics include breast size, dolphin rape and the mysteries of John Denver. And that’s in addition to all the other fancy discussion about box office, listener feedback and a Fat Guy Five about fourth movies. Finally, it’s on to the DVD Round-Up and riding off into the sunset.
This Week: Neil makes a triumphant return to the Magical Studio in the Sky while Kevin hits the flux capacitor to take the entire audience on a time travel adventures. With this episode, the Fat Guys hit the milestone of a 200th episode, which is damn near four years in your ears. Scary, huh? Kevin and Neil reminisce about starting the show on March 30, 2007 in a car, leading them to their status as podcasting legends. They also take some time to chat about Sanctum 3D and The Roommate as well as answering a listener voicemail. Then it’s a look back at the last 200 episodes with some well-wishes from friends of the show as well as the Fat Guy Five: Five Favorite Fat Guy Memories.

On This Week’s Show: While Neil is busy transferring FSR HQ to a new, undisclosed location, Kevin invites Tim Buel from The Golden Briefcase into the Magical Studio in the Sky to help suffer through the August doldrums. They contemplate if an Avatar re-release is really necessary for just nine freaking minutes. Then, they contemplate the necessity for a film like Takers. Finally, they contemplate why Lionsgate didn’t widely screen The Last Exorcism for press. This leads to a surprisingly relevant box office discussion about Piranha 3D and its sequel-earning box office disappointment. Tim and Kevin also discuss the future of 3D and lay down a Fat Guy Five about their favorite Devils.
Fat Guy Kevin Carr reviews the Blu-ray of Avatar.
