On This Week’s Show: So here we are with another weekend of movies that Hollywood deemed unfit for critical consumption. Kevin and Neil call shenanigans on the studios this week in the Magical Studio in the Sky. Kevin had the gumption to go see the only press screening of Extract while Neil boycotted it out of principle. Word is that even the few press members who got to see Gamer had a chastity belt of a gag order, and All About Steve was only shown in limited markets. Meh! Such is Labor Day weekend. Go rent a DVD or Blu-ray instead of heading to the cinemas. There’s much more quality stuff out at the video store than in the theaters this week.
