I hate these hiatuses. So, Film Geek Central comes back with five exciting new films to review!


PARANORMAL ACTIVITY is the scariest movie of the year, or at least that's what all the hype is saying. This modest $15,000 film has sold out everywhere its played in its limited engagement and now expands nationwide thanks to an enormous groundswell of internet support. Is this the film that will make us cry for mommy and never sleep in the dark again?

Of course the big one this weekend will be Spike Jonze's WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. Based on the classic children's book, this highly inventive film has been on our "must see" list for some time.

In the surprise hit, LAW ABIDING CITIZEN, Gerard Butler plays a resourceful man who takes matters into his own hands after a lawyer (Jamie Foxx) makes a plea bargain with the man who killed Butler's family.

We didn't do a show last week, so you will have to tune in this week to see what we think of COUPLES RETREAT. Vince Vaughn, John Favreau, Jason Bateman, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Kristen Davis and Faizon Love are just some of the people in this all-star romantic comedy, which was directed by former child star Peter Billingsley.

Finally, THE STEPFATHER remake is from the same guy that put extra stink on PROM NIGHT a couple years back. Be sure to check out the fireworks on this one.

All this plus film news and our DVD Picks of the Week!
NOTE: There were a couple audio drop-outs during this episode. It lasted for roughly a minute around the 63:30 mark and roughly 40 seconds around the 96:20 mark. We do come back though. Listen until the end of the show or you don't get a cupcake later.
