Next on the chopping block: 127 Hours and Faster

What's this? An artsy, award-nominated bit of film de cinema on our little show about beasts, boobs and mad killers. Have we gone nuts? Mad? Ka-razy?

Nope. In fact, on our first ever podcast episode, we reviewed a then little-know movie called The Hurt Locker. Surprise! It won best picture last year. Now we're tackling Danny Boyle's celebrated survival drama 127 Hours. Why? Although critically acclaimed, James Franco's star turn didn't exactly generate heat at the box office. In other words, no one saw it. But we have, and tonight we'll let you know if it deserved the acclaim or not.

Then Shawn and I ask one question: can you smell what The Rock is cookin'? That's right. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson returned to hardcore action last fall with Faster. Too bad no one bothered to see it. Did the film deserve to be ignored by mainstream audiences, or is it a diamond in the rough? Stick with us!

And The Basement's own Mike S, he who created our rating system The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, is back to review a little movie called 2001 A Space Odyssey. Did this die hard horror/indie fan dig the sci-fi classic? Tune in and find out.

We've also got music by The Heavy and Aerosmith and some fan mail to share with y'all. It's going to be a fun night of radio. That's a promise, as long as you tune in at 10 p.m. PST on 92.5 FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca. Don't say we didn't warn you.

And now some previews of coming attractions:
