Elitist Bastards: No True Scotsman

In this week’s Elitist Bastards Go To The Movies, Xpress film critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther: heap high praise upon teen comedy Easy A, crime thriller The Town and offbeat comedy The Extra Man; utterly dismiss Alpha and Omega and Devil; and have mixed feelings about Life During Wartime and Bran Nue Dae. They also give amused praise to Dario Argento’s bewildering horror film Phenomena (this week’s Thursday Horror Picture Show), and give the highest possible recommendation to Rouben Mamoulian’s 1932 musical comedy Love Me Tonight (next week’s Asheville Film Society screening). And, just for good measure, they weigh in on soon-to-be-released flicks Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, You Again, The Virginity Hit and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.

Podcast produced/cohered by Steve Shanafelt for MountainX.com. The theme music is “1832” by E. Lee. The Elitist Bastards podcast is also available on the iTunes store as a free download. Click here to join the Elitist Bastards Facebook fan page.
