In the interest of full disclosure, this episode is filled with the pop hits of yesteryear, so be warned. When not mining recent top 40 hits, Dan and Andrew slide into their usual avenues of nerdy and geeky conversation in episode 19.
Breaking News: With this week's announcement that a Tetris-based movie is going forward, Andrew regales Dan with this pitch for the flick.
Discussion: Fox recently announced that an extended "Rogue Cut" of X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released to home video––restoring footage not featured in the theatrical cut of the film––Dan and Andrew discuss the purpose, audience, and need of extended cuts/director's cuts of movies.
Conspiracy Corner: When Dan received a copy of the free "Marvel's 75th Celebration" magazine, he was surprised at the glaring omissions on the cover. Was it sly movie marketing or a case of bigotry (admittedly, against a fictional peoples)?
Question of the Week: Since October is now upon us, we turn our sights toward Halloween; so, even this early in the month, we ask:
What is your favorite genre of horror movie?

For all intents and purposes, that was an episode recap.
-"Stayin' in Black" by Wax Audio
-"Falling Blocks (the Trance)" and "Falling Blocks (the Funk)" by Prometheus Darkened
-"Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye
-"Born This Way" by Lady Gaga
I'm similar to Dan, in that I watched lots of horror movies as a kid, but as I grew older I found my imagination made those threatening images into real nightmares and I gave up the genre. However, I still have a soft spot for horror comedy. Subversions of the genre just don't antagonize my mind in the same way and I can enjoy movies like "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil", "Shaun of the Dead", and even "Cabin on the Lake" without a problem.
