New to View Double Feature! & Fall Movie Preview

We were unable to post our usual check-in with the MacGuffin Podcast last week so here is a double dose of MacGuffin film chat for your holiday weekend viewing. First up, Spencer and Allen talk about Zoe Saldana's career in light of her new revenge film COLOMBIANA and what Guy Pearce has done leading up to his new film DON'T BE AFRIAD OF THE DARK (sadly skipping over ADVENTURS OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT).


Spencer and Allen have two great DVD Picks for the Week: SIFF 2011 hit TROLLHUNTER and THE BEAVER, aka Jodie Foster directs Mel Gibson as he talks via a puppet. Both are available here now.




Next, I join Spencer for a down and dirty rundown of upcoming Fall movies, from this week's release of THE DEBT to friend-of-the-store Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVE (our colleague Matt saw it and LOVED it) to Jason Segel's awesome-looking THE MUPPETS  plus many others along the way. I was honored to be a part of the MacGuffin Podcast and hope I'll be invited back to talk about Roland Emmerich's ANONYMOUS.


Spencer picked Scarecrow staff favorite SONS OF ANARCHY: SEASON 3 and I picked the COEN BROTHERS BLU-RAY COLLECTION, which includes BLOOD SIMPLE, RAISING ARIZONA, FARGO, and MILLER'S CROSSING. Again, both are available for rent and sale here at Scarecrow.
