Stu Gotz is back! Hooray! Yup, Stu is back from Florida for our "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast, and he tells me all about his failed attempt to see a space shuttle launch. Luckily for the podcast it did lend for some good storytellin’, and speaking of storytellin’, a smell of freshly waxed floors over the weekend made me reminisce of college days where I was relegated to cleaning the fraternity house kitchen while the floor crew got sloshed. Ah, college days!
But as weekends do go, I let Stu know that "Due Date" is a pretty funny movie and he should go and see it, Stu told me that "Date Night" is a pretty funny movie and I should add it to my Netflix queue, Stu is sucked into "Supernatural" on TV while I"m sucked back into "Smallville," and Stu has a story of stupid people in Spain.
And speaking of stupid people, Milo had a quick trip to a vet on Sunday where I found that yes, people are lazy and stupid, especially when I saw a pharmaceutical ad for doggie diet pills. How lazy is that?

Movie Stats & Links
||Nicolas Cage, Joaquin Phoenix, Catherine Keener
We’ve got Nicolas Cage playing a Private Eye, hired by this old lady, to find out if this 8mm film her dead husband had in his safe truly depicts some horrible atrocity, or if it is fake. So, Cage has to watch, and watch, and watch this film, try to find out who shot it, and solve the mystery that turns into gunfights and chases.
It looks to be a pretty cool psychological thriller, with lots of action especially if Joel Schumacker is involved. Cage always entertains in these styles of films, so barring a catastrophe this should be a winner.
That’s it for this one, I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!

Somehow The BFF and my NCAA brackets are not busted yet, so during our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast I let Stu know that he should be cheering for The Ohio State Buckeyes as the Sweet Sixteen are now set, and that Mama Gotz should clean the house. Yup, it seems the NCAA basketball tournament is messing with her TV schedule, and she’s not happy about it, but neither Stu nor myself watched that much TV, and I’m thinking Celebrity Apprentice shouldn’t be two hours long.
Stu, though, gave the Netflix on Demand a try, with good success, we both saw “Repo Men” and thought it sucked, Stu was surprised to find Dodgeball at a little kid’s birthday party (Happy Birthday Little Gotz!), and I actually got dressed up for a 60’s themed birthday party. Heck, we even talk a little bit about the health care bill that passed.
Something is seriously wrong with the two of us, and we will know that for sure if either of us end up seeing “Hot Tub Time Machine” this upcoming weekend.
Thanks for listening!

My Blu-ray review of "Amelia" is posted. I would like to recommend the movie, but my BFF fell asleep while we were watching it. If you are fascinated by Amelia Earhart, like some picturesque scenery, or want to actually watch a deleted scene that should have stayed in the movie, go ahead and get it.
My Blu-ray review of "Surrogates" is posted. The movie was a whole 1/2 star better by watching it in my living room, but hey, go ahead and rent it to see Bruce Willis with some wacky hair.
Another Stu & The Dude’s "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast has come, and the boys talk about porn. Well, they sort of talk about porn, namely a sexbot and 3-D-ness, and if anything else at the CES show last week will be a staple of tomorrow because of sex. There is talk of a new computer, about computer server issues, about beer, about movies bad and good for kids, i.e., The Pink Panther 1 & 2, about movies for adults, i.e., Up In The Air, about TV catching up with "Chuck," and the return of "American Idol." The dudes don’t talk about Jay Leno that much, what with him losing his show and all, but hey, it’s topical, and Stu’s not really a fan, so why not, there is some Jay Leno talk as well. So much, so little time, yet Stu and The Dude figure a way to squeeze it into a 20-minute podcast.
Megan Fox’s body, umm, rather "Jennifer’s Body," is a movie that The Dude on the Right reviews and doesn’t think is all that great. He did like the girl-on-girl kissing, he did like a quote about cutting off a nutsack, and he did think Megan Fox was rather pretty, but in the horror realm, or in the realm of girls being mean to each other because of boys, well, "Jennifer’s Body" kind of floats along the sameness of some better movies. Then again, the Blu-ray does have an extra simple called "Megan Fox is HOT," so maybe The Dude has a screw loose.
The Dude on The Right & Stu Gotz both survived their respective New Year’s Eve celebrations, so they’ve made it back for the first "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast of 2010. In it they don’t talk too much about the new year, but mostly about how Stu Gotz is in the doghouse with a Little Gotz, how The Dude’s BFF needs some parking lines in the garage, and if "Pink Panther 2" is any good. Stu is sucked back into "Dr. Who" even thought the series is done for the year, The Dude still loves dinner at Sugartoad, Stu broke a mirror – sort of, and The Dude was still in the gift-giving mood, presenting Stu with some momentos of their youth at Illinois Institute of Technology. They talk about "Jersey Shore," "The Squeeze," and "Bridezillas" from their TV screens, they talk a bit about "Avatar" on the movie screen, and they talk about college. It’s a new year, they have a lot to talk about, and somehow they pull it off in under 20 minutes…
For this movie review of "Sherlock Holmes," The Dude on the Right generally liked the movie, but really felt that if it weren’t for the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Rachel McAdams, well, then Guy Ritchie could have had a big turd on his hand. Anyway, the chemistry between all of the actors was great for The Dude, and he didn’t even get that distracted by some of the CGI effects. Instead he just sat back, relaxed with his BFF in the theater, and enjoyed the show. He suggests you might be able to do the same, just leave the kids at home with the sitter.
This is more of a "Christmas Weekend Wrap-Up" podcast rather than just a "Weekend Wrap-Up," so The Dude on the Right and Stu Gotz discuss the various gifts they received, how the little Gotz’s got a few too many gifts, and Stu gives his review of the Roomba. Both of the boys saw "Sherlock Holmes" and they give their take on the film, The Dude on the Right tells Stu if he should rent "Julie & Julia" to watch with Mama Gotz, and they both think "Kelly’s Heroes" is a kick-ass movie. There is talk about the airplane bomber dude, about AT&T sucking by not selling iPhones to people in New York City (although they seem to be selling them again), about someone who should know what an iPod is but doesn’t, and about ungrateful family members. With the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football playing the Minnesota Vikings and Brett Favre, the boys don’t talk about football for this podcast, but then again, with the Bears sucking so bad, who cares?
