With "The Interview" finally reaching audiences on VOD platforms and in Independent Theaters, we decided to weigh in on cyberterrorism and freedom of speech as well as review the movie itself. Then we look back at Martin Scorsese's controversial "The Last Temptation of Christ" (1988) and the violent protests directed at the film at the time of its release.

After soaking in the news about Sony's plans not to release "The Interview" due to threats by terrorists, we show a rare display of unity as we take turns angrily expressing our disappointment in Peter Jackson's new movie "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies". Along the way we discuss everything we love about J.R.R. Tolkien's literature and why Jackson's original "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy was such a dramatically superior moviegoing experience.

With the limited theatrical release of "Inherent Vice" we decided to look back at the career of one of our greatest filmmakers, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson. Following on the heels of what are popularly considered to be his two greatest movies, "There Will Be Blood" and "The Master", we debate to what extent "Inherent Vice" is a worthy addition to his filmography.
