For Episode 042, we are joined by special guest LAREMY LEGEL, esteemed film critic and author of the book “Film Critic: A Decade Behind the Scenes in the Movie Industry.” Laremy teams up with Karl and Andy, and they lambast Jason (quite humorously) for his lone-wolf opinion about Pacific Rim. And Josh joins the fray at the end of the show for our Mini Reviews section, which yields an epic battle with Andy over the documentary “Tabloid.” A must-listen episode — join us!
