Episode 74 – Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, A Perfect Man, reviews: Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight

So after 73 episodes of talking about trailers, we decided it might be a good idea to talk about what we think actually makes a trailer good or bad.  Also, the Avengers–though currently disassembled–continue to dominate the movie landscape, with Thor: The Dark World now in theaters and the release of the new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which we watch in this episode (we’ll get around to the reviewing the former soon).  We also check out the latest trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and a trailer for a supposed comedy starring Liev Schreiber called A Perfect Man.  Plus we review Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight, and talk about what we’re watching.
