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.
