Elitist Bastards: Scott Pilgrim, The Expendables and The Joy of Basting

In this week’s Elitist Bastards Go To The Movies, Xpress film critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther shine their critical searchlights on Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, The Expendables and Eat Pray Love. The also discuss the comedic political commentary behind The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (this week’s Thursday Horror Picture Show) and the slightly dated charm of Billy Wilder’s Cold War comedy One, Two, Three (this week’s Asheville Film Society screening). And they mercilessly examine this week’s new offerings Vampires Suck, The Lottery, Nanny McPhee Returns,The Switch (previously known as The Baster) and Piranha 3D.

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.

    I think this is the first artwork rejection I’ve had. Not disturbing enough for you?

    You weren’t rejected. I didn’t get it till after this was already up and Mr. Shanafelt suggested we save it for next week.

    You guys should do when like Men on Film and Ken could even wear the little hat.

    Steve has us shout into a horn that etches something on a wax cylinder, I think.
