/Filmcast Ep. 179 - The Hunger Games (GUEST: Tasha Robinson From AV Club)

This week, Dave, Devindra, and Adam discuss the pleasures of texting in a theater, praise the wonders of Clone High and The Raid: Redemption, and compare Battle Royale to The Hunger Games (because nobody's ever mentioned their similarities ever!). Tasha Robinson joins us from AV Club.

You can always e-mail us at slashfilmcast(AT)gmail(DOT)com, or call and leave a voicemail at 781-583-1993. We'll most likely be reviewing Goon next week. /Filmcast live broadcasts won't be regular the next few months, but follow Dave on Twitter to see when we'll be broadcasting next!
