This week, for the first time ever, we're recording live and in person! And for the first time in weeks we've all seen the movie we're reviewing, which is the latest superhero opus X-Men: First Class. Plus a lightning round devoted to obscure movie titles, tidbits that include heartbreaking documentaries and two hot trailers, and a segment three about documentaries-- who's watching them, how we can get more people to watch them, and which documentaries are good for people who think they're just the boring filmstrips you had to watch in middle school. We end, as always, with your answers to our lightning round question for dessert-- featured this week are Twitter users @JEBermanator, @BrandonRohwer, @hlkneedler and @thefilmcynic.
