/Filmcast Ep. 168 - Hugo (GUEST: Eric D. Snider From Film.com)

This week, Dave Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Adam Quigley chat about the virtues of the Elite Squad films, praise Puss in Boots as a film better than its marketing would suggest, and try not to lose all hope in John Carter and the live action Akira remake. Special guest Eric D. Snider joins us from Film.com and Movie BS. Also, correction: Cell 211 is available on Netflix in what appears to be a region 1 DVD!
