Next on the chopping block: Case 39 and The Road


How fast the weeks travel by. But for Shawn and I that's a good thing as we once again get to entertain you with some not-so-random chatter about one of our favourite things: movies!

Being a review program, we've lined up a couple of diverse ones to face the executioner's axe: the post apocalyptic drama The Road and the horror film Case 39. The Road has some amazing pedigree in the form of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize winning novel. It's a great book. But how does the movie stack up?

Case 39 stars Academy Award winning actress Renee Zellweger and features a social worker charged with a potentially dangerous child. It's sat on a shelf for years, rarely a good sign, but finally made it to theatres this month. Rarely do Shawn and I venture out to the theatre, but this one's reputation demanded it.

We begin a new segment called Era Flops, where we discuss the worst movie of a given year. We've gone all the way back to 1985 for our first segment. There will also be music by The Kills, Audioslave and whatever great independent artists Shawn has lined up.

So tune in tonight at 10 p.m on 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops or listen online at www.thex.ca. You'll thank yourself for it. The podcast will be up on podOmatic to listen to at your leisure by the Monday.

Now for some previews:
