On This Week’s Show: Neil is whisked away for an “emergency” surgery in the Netherlands, so Kevin welcomes guest host Emily McFadden from the Cue the Film podcast. Together, they take a trip to District 9 and galavant with The Time Traveler’s Wife. Kevin and Emily also talk Bandslam and Vanessa Hudgens in pictures, as well as Ponyo and The Goods. In the second segment, Kevin and Emily derail right into a cogent discussion of modern cinema, and then they get back on track for a Fat Guy Five: Five Awesome Alien Flicks.
