Reject Radio: Episode 32 – More Personality Driven

Brought to you by: The NIAACX’s 28th Annual Intergalactic Meeting of Extra Terrestrials. January 8th, from 7pm – ?? Right here in Austin Texas, in the empty lot across from the Home Depot on Oltorf.

This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, Cinematical‘s John Gholson and I delve into the largest debate about whether or not Avatar is making any money in the history of the universe (hint: it is).

We then proceed to empty an entire bottle of cheap table wine by myself (John rocked right through a handle of Crystal Light Peach Tea), and we lamented the fact that zero wide releases hit the box office at your local theater this weekend.

Lucky for you we gave out the Inaugural Reject Radio Awards for Academic Excellence in Film by taking a look at some films of the past decade that were grossly overlooked (but can be re-looked at your convenience on several disc-based playing modules).
