Every so often, John and El'Ahrai like to shine a spotlight on some criminally underseen corner of the tapestry of film. This, however, is not one of those times, as they spend this week's show engaged in a Classic Film Dissection of 1977's "Star Wars".

El'Ahrai and John are at it again, trying to tell other people how to do their jobs.  This week their invaluable advice--in the form of a list of the Top Five Other Movies That Deserve the Treatment--goes out to the fine persons at the Criterion Collection.  (I don't even have the energy to make the requisite "Jack & Jill" "joke" here.)  But wait, there's more!  We also have an exclusive interview with "There's Something About Mary" actress Lin Shaye!  Plus!  Reviews of "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Monster Brawl"!  I enjoyed the movie very much.

Certain actors have, through their work and choices, proven their very presence to be a mark of quality.  Y'know, like Rob Schneider.  This week, John and El'Ahrai deliver their Top 5 Actors With a Lifetime Pass!  But wait, there's more!  We also have an exclusive interview with "My Week With Marilyn" director Simon Curtis!  Plus!  Reviews of "Project X" and "The Last Temptation of Christ"!  And do you promise that if I die some embarrassing and boring death that you're gonna tell our daughter that her father was killed by Russian soldiers in this intense hand-to-hand combat in an attempt to save the lives of 850 Chechnian orphans?

Stake it through the heart and bury it at the crossroads, 2011 is officially in the rear-view mirror.  This week, El'Ahrai and John kick the last bit of dirt on the grave as they outline the Top Five Things the Oscars Got Wrong!  (Seriously, "The Shore" over "Tuba Atlantic"?  I don't know what to believe any more.) Plus!  Reviews of "Wanderlust" and "Immortals"!  You're very kind, but I wouldn't call my babbling poetic.  Although I was on a pretty good roll there.

Though they lobby with all of their might, El'Ahrai and John still have yet to be admitted to the Academy, and as such, their wise voices go unheard around nomination time.  As a result of this slight, this week's show is their Top Five Nominations The Academy Got Wrong...This Time.  Plus!  Reviews of "The Grey" and "Metal Shifters"!  You had your whole life to prepare for this moment. Why aren't you ready?

Like any organization created and staffed by humans, the Ratings Board of the Motion Picture Association of America is capable of a mistake here and there.  (Letting "Jack and Jill" get released at all, for example.)   This week, El'Ahrai and John give you their lists of the Top Five Movies That Got A Questionable Rating!  Plus!  Reviews of "Carnage" and "Godzilla"!  I love the way this country smells. I'll never forget it. It's kind of spicy.

Sometimes when a director has worked in a particular mode for a while, a viewer can start to wish they'd take a lesson from an artistic colleague. This week, John and El'Ahrai discuss their Top Five Directors Who Should Try Something In Someone Else's Style (I swear it makes more sense when you hear it).  But wait, there's more!  We also have an interview with "Underworld: Awakening" directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein!  Plus!  Reviews of "Tinker Tailor Solider Spy" and "Dirty Girl"!  You know, you have fought naked. We got that. That's on YouTube.
