In an atypical Episode 045, we review four new movies that are currently playing in theaters: “2 Guns,” “Only God Forgives,” “R.I.P.D.” and “The To Do List.” And and we still clocked in at under 2 hours somehow. Our special guest is Crime Writer ANTHONY BRUNO whose Web site is Anthony Bruno.net. Bruno kicks off the episode by telling us some very cool insider information about the process of writing the novelization for David Fincher’s film “Se7en” (1995). And of course, we bring you our Mini Reviews and our specialty recommendation segments, as well.
