It’s all change, baby, and with that in mind we’re experimenting with the format of the podcast. We’ve stripped away the news and theatrical and homevid release segments, combining them with our weekly Post-Mortem bull session to form what will be called the Cinefantastique Round Table Podcast. What’s left, now dubbed the Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast, will provide us with time to stretch out, unhinge our brains and mouths, and let the conversation about the week’s top release take us where it will.

And brudder, do we have a kick-off film for the new format. THE GREEN HORNET arrives in theaters with a clouded past that’s only been partially concealed by a late-in-the-game decision to convert it to 3D. Did the extra months give its creators — including director Michel Gondry and star/co-writer Seth Rogen — time enough to find the right balance between super-hero action and Apatow bro-comedy? Join Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons to find out.
