In the latest installment of our ongoing podcast series, Russ, Curt, and I discuss Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and The Next Three Days.  Also, since it’s finally expanding to the greater Atlanta area, we talk about Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours.  While all three of us liked these movies, we each had our own particular qualms.  We also go into spoiler territory on Deathly Hallows at the end of the episode, so be sure you listen after you’ve seen the movie if you want to get Russ’ thoughts on particular deus ex machinas in the movie as well as my issue regarding the unclear nature of one character’s fate.
