Linoleum Knife (general)

It's Labor Day Weekend, and the movies kinda suck. Dave and Alonso would rather talk about Thundercats and beer pong and "American Idol" runners-up and the Spin Doctors and decapods.

Guest critics Jen Yamato and Todd Gilchrist join Alonso to discuss more late-summer movies. There's also confessions about classic movies not seen and mockery of junket journos who call celebs by their first names. Follow our guests at Twitter: @jenyamato and @mtgilchrist

Dave and Alonso would rather talk about one-hit wonders and "Hart to Hart" than these late-summer doldrum movies, but they manage to cover both. Oh, and if you're a GetGlue.com person, you can now check in to the show -- but you'll have to find it listed with the TV shows. It just is.

Dave and Alonso welcome special guest Louis Virtel (Movieline.com, "Verbal Vogueing") to discuss what we love and hate about singing teenagers and why Part Fives are the new awesome. (If only the "House Party" franchise had made it that far.) The bumps in the audio happened because we decided later it wasn't nice to out a fellow film critic for crying at "Marley & Me."


Dave and Alonso contemplate a Partridge Family/Planet of the Apes cross-over and remember the R-rated movies of their childhood. P.S. We keep forgetting to mention that you should watch Alonso on Current's "50 Documentaries to See Before You Die."

Alonso would rather watch nine hours of Christian Marclay's conceptual art than 86 minutes of Smurfs, and Dave loves Miranda July and Captain America and doesn't care who knows it.

Dave and Alonso bid farewell to the little wizards, welcome a reboot of beloved characters, and talk about their favorite Harry Potter movies, Martin Scorsese's doggy-reaction shots, Daniel Johnston, and why "Hoarders" became too sad for Dave to watch.

Dave and Alonso would rather talk about Pippi Longstocking and the CBS Late Movie than new releases, but they manage to cover all of them.

Dave likes tea; Alonso likes coffee. Dave likes Michael Bay movies; Alonso likes his Twitter-pal Nia Vardalos. They both like monster-movie matinees.

Dave and Alonso talk the week's new movies as well as the times when "boring" isn't necessarily a pejorative. There's also the discussion of the awkwardness of getting to know famous people and having to review their work.
