The big question:  which movies do you want to see and which would you rather throw in the dumpster?

Episode 50 — NebulaFail 2010

23 May

The Nebulas have been announced, and we’re not very happy.  For this episode, Adam returns for a testosterone-filled rant about the nominees and the winners, our preferred candidates, and the things we actually enjoyed this time around.  Our episode might be a tad on the controversial side, but that’s the way (uh huh, uh huh) we like it.

(Episode 3.8 was originally schedules to be an episode of Torture Cinema, but we forgot about the Nebulas and decided we needed to talk about them.  Torture Cinema will be next week.)
