TGB Episode 135: Making a Living Killing (Guest: Josh Johnson)

November 29, 2012

TGB - Killing Them Softly

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest filmmaker Josh Johnson (of the doc Rewind This Movie) to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Dwayne Johnson's Snitch and Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Slayer and much more. The main topic of the night was all things regarding hired killers in film, in honor of Andrew Dominik's mob killer film Killing Them Softly hitting theaters this week. The guys go over some of their favorite hired hitmen/hitwomen, talk about why it is such a popular storytelling method in film and more.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM 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!
