Dave and Alonso have way too many movies to talk about this week, so things run a little long. But hey, you've got an unhinged chick flick, the return of Mel Gibson, Spanish Civil War histrionics, and a hobo with a shotgun, so, you know.

Dave and Alonso try to get excited about this week's new movies, but it's much more interesting to talk about old ones featuring Johnny Cash talking for Jesus, rabid zombie hippies, and blatant product placement.

Dave and Alonso tell actors why they should be nice to the costume department, complain about the Black Eyed Peas, and wonder what Ayn Rand's philosophy means for turning off your cell phones in movie theaters, much less streetlights and fire departments.

Dave and Alonso disagree about the virtues of slow cinema, teen girl assassins, and enthusiastic Christians. They also take a moment to remember the awesomeness of Sidney Lumet.

"Sucker Punch" is so godawful that Dave and Alonso consider apprenticeships for new careers as, respectively, a butcher and a weaver of Chanel braid. But until that happens, they review "Potiche" and the new "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" movie, as well as HBO's "Mildred Pierce" and the wonderfully depressing first two movies based on the "Peanuts" comic strip.

Dave and Alonso try to make heads or tails of a staggeringly dull Academy Awards ceremony. Dave defends James Franco's hosting abilities, but Alonso's not having it.
