We start by energizing you with sad short tales and then move onto our first impressions of the new ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ teaser trailer. What are they doing? Jonathan asserts dislike for Sam Raimi’s take on ‘Spider-Man’ and Ryan asserts the ‘Watchmen’ film is an improvement upon the original graphic novel and that the film adaptation of ‘V for Vendetta’ is a celluloid travesty of abortive translation which brings us to discuss how we need to remind ourselves of why things piss us off every now and then… like Jeff Foxworthy: funny or should he die?
