We quite liked the #2 movie in America, Argo. One of us also saw the #1 movie in America, Taken 2. Listen to find out more about both! Then, at the 52-minute mark, we do a 3×3 of our favorite nicknames.
Next week: Seven Psychopaths

I’m surprised no one brought up ‘Marcy May’ in Martha Marcy May Marlene. I’d understand it not being ‘technically’ a nickname sense John Hawkes essentially renames her, but I think it could be argued as one and am kind of surprised it wasn’t brought up
Unless it was in the runners up during the one minute I couldn’t hear thanks to my dog.
Damn! I really love that one, Jacob. I think I’ll preempt Tom’s usual move and take this and replace my dopey #2 choice.
Also, Kelly Wand, would it be right to say next weeks 3v3 is three best ‘physical’ transformations?
I really wanted to participate this week but I had a really hard time thinking up any nicknames, for some reason. But since the only one I did think of wasn’t mentioned, I’ll go ahead and throw it out: Kevin Costner’s titular nickname in Tin Cup, and the story behind it.
Yeah, but I want to give Tom wiggle room to break it.
“Suitcase of Asskicking” is my new metal cover band name. :)
I’m pleased Zelazny is a favored author of Kelly. My favorite (although I prefer Amber) Lord of Light is very very good.
Yeah, the guy was a brilliant stylist. A lot of his short stories are the best ever. I want to make Tom read Damnation Alley. Best protagonist name ever: Hell Tanner. Suck it, Bart Fargo.
This week’s Argsis was great. Kelly Wand spits hot fire!
& not just from his mouth.
