5. Returns

April 3rd, 2012

This week Joe and Ed talk about unwarranted sequels, films about homecomings and discuss directors in desperate need of a return to form. Amongst the subjects of discussion are Brett Rattner's Midnight Run sequel, the masterpiece that is Five Easy Pieces and whether or not Martin Scorsese has made a great film since Goodfellas.

Along the way, there is a quad bike race in the street outside the studio, some pontification about the events between Lethal Weapon 2 and 3 and some seriously disturbed revelations about the fate of the title character in Hugo.
