Elitist Bastards Go To The Movies: The Unbearable Lightness of the A-Team

This week, Hanke and Souther: share their views on The Karate Kid, The A-Team, The Secret in Their Eyes, Please Give and Survival of the Dead; explain why The Sentinel isn’t as gory as you may have heard; make the case for the classic Howard Hawks comedy The Twentieth Century; and express a deflated optimism about soon-to-open flicks Toy Story 3 and Jonah Hex. The Elitist Bastards podcast is also available on the iTunes store as a free download.

Podcast produced/“cohered” by Steve Shanafelt for MountainX.com. This week’s opening theme is “1832” by E. Lee. Original art by Jeremy Dylan.

    Are we going to have to cross a PETA bolckade now?

    Very, very probably.

  3. I have to say that I like the TOY STORY pictures a great deal more than both of you seem to. That said, I’m not exactly brimming with anticipatory glee over the prospect of a third – especially in 3D.

    I really should watch TWENTIETH CENTURY. Perhaps it should go on the top of the DVD pile when I return to Sydney.

    You could take up the new thing for readers who aren’t local and watch it at the same time we’re screening it as a kind of solidarity thing. I leave it to you to work out the time difference.

    Tell him it’s research. Or put him on the phone with me. I’ll straighten him out.
