Reject Radio #79: Freedom of Speech

This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we get our hands dirty with an important political question: was Abraham Lincoln a member of the X-Men?

We also tackle Mark Harris’s instantly popular “The Day the Movies Died” article, the concept of marketing as storytelling, and Rob Hunter is challenged with bringing up the movie Little Giants at some point during the hour and a half show.

Plus, we find time to review I Am Number Four and Unknown before settling into the real question of the night: Is there a liberal bias in Hollywood. Special guests Vic Holtreman from Screen Rant and John Nolte from Big Hollywood join Hunter and I on this magical, magical journey that will touch your heart.
