On This Week’s Show: Neil is still off gallivanting at Sundance TwentyTen, so Kevin welcomes Merrill Barr from The Film Stage to the Magical Studio in the Sky. Surprise, surprise: Merrill has seen more movies than Neil normally does, and together he and Kevin discuss Edge of Darkness and When In Rome. The discussion inexplicably turns to relevant film issues like the development of 3D, the branching technology of Blu-rays and how much Merrill doesn’t like romantic comedies or Mel Gibson as a director.
