EftRoU - Media Mogul

The new segment that I alluded to above is called EftRoU Media Mogul Fantasy League. We plan on having four seasons each year of the league and the point is to see who know more about media. Each of us will pick from movies, TV shows, video games and new DVDs. During this segment we kicked off with the first two rounds of the Media Mogul draft. In the first round Mike picked The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Shady’s pick was Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Square Ross went with The Muppets, and I picked Battlefield 3. Listen in to see what else we pick in round two. We will also post all our other picks in a later plus the results spreadsheet for the world to see. Look for that to come later.

Take Me Home Tonight

Relativity Media - Take Me Home Tonight

We were excited to take on this week’s feature flick, “Take Me Home Tonight“. The story of Take Me Home Tonight was written by Topher Grace, you know the guy who plays Forman on ‘That 70’s Show‘. The story he wrote, is about a guy who is not sure what he wants to do now that he has graduated from college. So before the summer is over he decides to try and get a date with his High School crush. From there all hell breaks loose, well almost all of it. Beside writing the story Topher Grace stars in this film along with, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer. Listen in to see what we really think of this movie and to find out an interesting theory that Mike has.
