This Week: Even though it’s Halloween weekend, Hollywood has moved on to a period piece, sci-fi action and children’s fare. Kevin invites Jim Napier from GeekTyrant and Napier’s News to join him to talk about the films bridging the gap between Halloween and the holiday season. They contemplate fractured fairy tales, Justin Timberlake’s acting ability and whether Shakespeare should have blown up more shit in his plays. Then they hit the middle segment to talk box office, key news items and lay down a Fat Guy Five about spin-offs. Finally, it’s the DVD Rundown and a ghoulish exit… though not really.
