On This Episode: Kevin and Joe give an unfiltered look at the upcoming 33rd Annual Ohio 24-Hour Science Fiction Movie Marathon. Kevin poses mathathon-goer questions directly to Joe in an unrehearsed and unpredictable format.
This Week: Kevin kicks off the Christmas season with a bright and shiny review of the new horror film Krampus. Of course, he first lays into the early award season choice of Mad Max: Fury Road as the best film of the year, then unleashes his Doomsday-like cynicism over the new Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. Other reviews for the week include The Letters, Brooklyn and Carol. Finally, Kevin answers another listener voicemail before offering some home cinema selections, including a post-Turkey Day visit to the Satellite of Love.
This Week: Kevin battens down the hatches for the onslaught of terrible Labor Day Weekend movies, including A Walk in the Woods and The Transporter Refueled. He also bids a fond farewell to legendary horror movie director Wes Craven. Later, he reviews the other films of the week, including Mistress America, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, Bloodsucking Bastards and Jimmy’s Hall. Finally, he wraps things up with daring box office predictions and the world-famous DVD Round-Up!

This Week: Kevin takes a break from talking too much about gender politics in Hollywood (though not completely) to run down some development and TV news. Then he looks at trailers for some fall movies, one which may be unexpected good and another that will have fans freaking out with holographic rage.
