Next on the chopping block: The Steve Alten interview, The Next Three Days and The Last Lovecraft - Relic of Cthulhu

Tonight's a big night for us in The Basement folks as we've got an exclusive interview with New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten.

Alten's the mind behind Meg, the original giant shark tale that inspired The Asylum's Mega Shark movies. The novel has been circling Hollywood for years as it waits to hit the big screen. Alten talks about his battles with Hollywood, his other novels Domain and The Loch, and the world's fascination with the pending Mayan apocalypse. Its a half hour of talk you won't want to miss.

Do any of you remember when Russell Crowe was a big deal? Remember Gladiator? Master and Commander? L.A. Confidential? Hell, how about Virtuosity?

Well, the moody actor's glory days are likely behind him if the box office returns for The Next Three Days are any indication. But a final domestic gross of just $21 million doesn't mean the action/thriller isn't any good. It's just that no one seems to care about Russell Crowe anymore. Nor do Shawn and I really, but that doesn't mean we object to watching his movies and sharing our thoughts on them, which we do for you tonight.

Once we're done with Crowe, we aim the executioner's axe on the ancient ones. Yes, those evil beings from beyond are back in a new horror comedy inspired by the imagination of H.P. Lovecraft. The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu looks like the kind of quirky mix of horror and comedy that made Shaun of the Dead so good. But that doesn't mean that it is. What do we think? Stick with us!

So tune in tonight at 10 p.m. PST on 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca. Oh yeah, that's the good stuff!

And now for some previews of coming attractions:
