Running Dialogue #23: THE EAGLE and Valentine’s Day Movies

     February 14, 2011


In our first Running Dialogue of 2011, Curt and I talk about The Eagle and since neither of us saw Just Go With It, we use the occasion to suggest Valentine’s Day movies that are actually worth your time.  I also go on a mini-rant about the crappiness of romantic comedies.  We wrap up with recommendations for Atlanta folks that they should see the animated short The Lost Thing and the one-night-only re-release of Memento. Two quick notes:  We had a minor technical difficulty in recording this episode, but I assure you that we did not record this at the bottom of a deep, dark hole.  Secondly, for those who are missing the sultry sounds of Russ Fischer’s voice, fear not: he will return in our next episode.
