Gary Oldman plays the man charged with figuring out who the mole is. The audience, however, is challenged with trying to figure out what the hell is going on.


Scene-Stealers Podcast 43 features Trevan and Eric’s fundamental difference in opinion on ‘Tinker Tailor Solider Spy,’ the new spy “thriller” opening wide this weekend. Once that’s over, they make up long enough to talk about anticipated movies of 2012.


Po (Jack Black), the reluctant and obese Dragon Warrior, and his gang of kung fu specialists are called back into action in Dreamworks’ “Kung Fu Panda 2”.
