Episode 142 – No Escape, Get Hard, The Forger; Dustin finally sees… The Godfather, Part III

In this episode, we check out trailers for Owen Wilson’s new action thriller No Escape, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart in the comedy Get Hard, and John Travolta in the heist film The Forger. Plus Dustin finally sees The Godfather, Part III and a look at What We’re Watching.

(BK makes reference to The Jinx; at the time we recorded this episode, the last episode had not aired and Robert Durst had not yet been arrested for the murder of Susan Berman. Suffice it to say, it’s worth checking out.)
