Episode 56 includes:
-The guys reflect upon their exeprience in this year's 48 Hour Film Fest. Watch their short "Cordless" HERE. You'll never think of extension dennis cords the same way.
-"The Canyons" just makes you feel sad all over. And that's with Lindsay Lohan nudity.
-The one problem with "The Way, Way Back": not enough cliches?
-"2 Guns" has way more guns than that. Also, "Elysium" is many things but subtle it ain't.
-This Week's Pitch -- Horrible Sci-fi Future Worlds!
-Nate pitches a world where tehcnology has destroyed our face-to-face communication.
-Eric pitches a world overpopulated with people who cannot die. Plus get a load of "Worm Women."

-Bonus Discussion -- Future of Hollywood Blockbusters?
-The guys have an in-depth conversation on the future of the big-budget Hollywood movie, the costs of doing blockbuster business, the concept of ticket sales changing to reflect audience interest, and whether we're heading for an implosion.
