The Golden Briefcase - Real Steel

On this week's return episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by our own Ethan Anderton of right here, FirstShowing, to go over their Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD and Blu-Ray releases, talk through the new trailers for Joe Carnahan's The Grey and David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and listen to Tim and Jeremy recap Fantastic Fest 2011! The main topic of the night was a discussion on robots in movies in honor of Real Steel hitting theaters this weekend. The guys go over some of the best and worst examples and let Jeremy and Ethan duke it out over their opinions of Real Steel.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 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!

Hahaha, love that bit about Lucas stealing the Metropolis robot for Star Wars. Your quote "I'm stealing that" made me fall out of my chair. Thanks for the midday laugh! Great to have you back guys and thanks for the heads up on your favs from Fansasticfest.  Oh and I totally agree with Ethan's take on Real Steel as I don't think the father son this is as hokey as people are making it out to be. Lots of fun and a ton of heart even though it's mixed bag of the best parts and themes of all the Rocky movies:P
