Invaders from Mars! (and other places)

On this episode... With the release of Pacific Rim this past weekend, Pinky, d$ and Mikey take on the topic of Earth Invasion movies... and in the studizzy... Dr Earl makes his re-appearance!

What makes an Earth invasion movie?  A film where aliens, perhaps otherworldy, perhaps of this worldly, plot to take over the planet either for enslaving us, or to use up our resources and move on... of course, the guys never let the thought process of rules encumber what they try to do...

So goes the discussions of Earth Invasions like ID4...They Live...Marvel's The Avengers...Mars Attacks!... and so many more... and is Super 8 an invasion film, or just a movie about an alien who just wants to go home?  Find out.

We debate about the good--and bad--of this epic film
that will surely lose a ton of jack for Disney
We have round robin discussions on films like The Lone Ranger--and whether Johnny Depp should have even been a part of this movie or not... World War Z... Monsters University... and the aforementioned Pacific Rim...

We also play a little "Which Crap Is Better"? game, taking familiar films like "The Watch", "Battlefield Earth" and "Signs" and match them up against unseen little gems like "Feeders 2: Slay Bells" and the Oscar winning epic "Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Across America"... and what was that movie called?  Say what?  Yes.  Its a real title.  Just listen.

Speaking of Oscar winning epics... Mikey gives his rundown of how much he loved Heaven's Gate, and how Pinky cried at the majesty that is Double Jeopardy...

And our Top Five changes up slightly, with the appearance of new films!
