Kevin says The Iron Lady kinda sucks!
This Week: As 2011 comes to a close, Kevin invites The Idiot Boxers’ co-host Merrill Barr into the Magical Studio in the Sky to look at the best and worst films of the year. They also look at some of the new films this week, including the Christmas Day release of The Darkest Hour as well as the limited release films The Iron Lady, Albert Nobbs, Angels Crest, Pariah and A Separation. Then they talk about box office winners and predictions before Merrill gets alarmingly shrill at the topic of the DVD Round-up. Then the Fat Guys Network says good-bye to 2011 and hello to 2012.
