May 19, 2010
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Kevin Carr from Film School Rejects and the Fat Guys at the Movies podcast to discuss their Picks of the Week, the newest DVD/Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for The Adjustment Bureau, Sam Taylor Wood's Nowhere Boy and Iron Sky, as well as re-live the cheese of The Phantom (1996) and much more. The main topic of the night was 4th Films in a Series: (in honor of Shrek Forever After hitting theaters this Friday). The guys talk about some notable 4th entries in various film franchises and what the gravitas of their presence means for those series as a whole.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Well, anyone who's a fan of Kevin Costner is a friend of mine:) Personally I am a Costner super-fan almost to a fault, but hey I think he's a dependable actor. Top 3 are Open Range, Mr. Brooks, Robin Hood (yes, Robin Hood). When a series comes out with a 4th film, if they made a point of selling the first 3 as a "Trilogy" and heavily advertise it as such, it kills whatever legacy was laid before it. If they just make a sequel to make one that really dilutes the franchise as a whole. Rocky 4 was great and really inspired the rebirth of Rocky. While 5 stomped that idea flat, Rocky Balboa was quite enjoyable and finalized the series on a good note. Although, I fully agree with you guys that Rambo 4 was an excellent sequel. Oh and I vehemently hate Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (sorry Kevin)! Talk about too little too late:( Even though I know what they were trying to do with the plot, that movie's low points easily bring down any high points!

I hope you guys make good on that "LOST" episode. Maybe even next week as the end of the series is on Sunday.
