This week on the podcast, Mike, Red and Scott meet in the Nostromo Lounge and discuss the unfortunate passing of genre icon (and member of horror film royalty) Wes Craven, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen's hilarious and slightly informative IFC satire series DOCUMENTARY NOW, the still lingering slap of whitewash casting found in EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS, Mike begrudges/Scott gushes over the absolutely bananas METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN from complete lunatic Hideo Kojima, whether THE MATRIX or James Cameron's ALIENS has had longer lasting and more significant influence on science fiction and pop culture as a whole, Joaquin Phoenix elaborates further on why he turned down the title role in Marvel's DR. STRANGE (hint: he really hates scripts that are about asteroids flying through space), Aaron Sorkin's reality inspired, socio-political drama THE NEWSROOM on HBO and much, much more before our featured review of Z FOR ZACHARIAH from director Craig Zobel.

So zip up your polygonal Safesuit, dismantle the family church in the name of science, plunge into the Garden of Eden with a radioactive dose of confusing ambigiuity, and let's see if we can win the heart of the "last female on earth" before we all go from Adam to Zachariah.
