The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Matt Singer from IFC News to talk about their latest Picks of the Week, the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for Matt Reeve's Let Me In and Hiromasa Yonebayashi's The Borrowers (from Studio Ghibli), chat about their basic disinterest in The Boondock Saints and much more! The main topic of the night was a retrospective on the career of Robert Rodriguez (in honor of Rodriguez' Predators, hitting theaters this Friday). The guys talk about his ups and downs, him as a director, and their hopes for Nimrod Antal's Predators. Listen in below!

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!

In the Audible intro, Tim says "is" instead of "are". "...even after your fourteen days *is* done..."

As far as Let Me In goes, if this already looks to be a shot for shot remake, then why make it at all? Oh that's right because American audiences have a problem with subtitles:P One bit of marketing I like so far is the Morse code at the end of the trailer. I wonder if they'll have that cute little "train sequence" in this film. Though I'm super stoked for anything Studio Ghibli...I just hope I can find a theater where The Borrowers isn't dubbed. I think I feel the same way about Resivour Dogs as you do about Boondock each their own I guess. Overnight was a bit of a smear campaign although it's true a lot of what he did to shoot himself in the foot he did himself. But I like what you said about respecting the following. It's not the greatest movie but its fun.
