The first things we dive into is the latest news surrounding Star Trek 2 and the recent casting announcements of Benicio Del Toro (Snatch), Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League) and Peter Weller (RoboCop) joining the returning cast of Star Trek (2009).  Rumors have been flying about Benicio taking on the legendary role of Khan portrayed by Ricardo Montalban in an Original Series Episode of Star Trek titled “Space Seed” and then reprising the role in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.  We talk about how JJ Abrams and crew should take this approach with such a great Sci-Fi Villain, if at all.  The roles of Alice Eve and Peter Weller are still unknown but are said to be major roles in regards to the story.  We also touch on the recently released 2nd trailer for John Carter of Mars.

We begin the show talking about the comedy Airplane(1980) which chronicles an airplane crew as they take ill while airborne. Sadly the only person able to land the plane is also afraid to fly and happens to be an ex-pilot. The EftRou crew definitely has some strong opinions and thoughts regarding this classic movie starring: Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen, Peter Graves and Robert Stack.  With an all star cast and some great one liners can this movie still stand the test of time?

Next up was Caddyshack (1980) which is another classic comedy centering around the world of Golf, a posh Golf Course, an Adorable Groundhog, and all the fun that comes with it.  This movie features an all-star cast featuring: Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight and Chevy Chase.  Again does this classic movie stand up to Shady’s and Mike’s expectations?  In addition we talk about some interesting things of whether or not this might be one of Bill Murray’s best roles ever?

We always hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on twitter via @entfortherest you can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Shady the Biker (@ShadyTheBiker), Mike (@cb_robinson) and me, SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).
