  • The Geek Question of the Week is: Between animated and live-action, which do you think is the better medium for superhero content? Pretty good discussion, I think, and we landed on opposite sides of the debate. What's new, right?
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we rave over the 2007 crime thriller starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, American Gangster! Wow, what a good movie with an amazing cast! Though it definitely takes creative license with the story, it is based on the true story of Frank Lucas and Richie Roberts and heroin and organized crime in Harlem.
