03 Sep 2008 Late Summer Speed Round

With the summer freshly in the can, we present 14 compact reactions (some more compact than others) to a season of generally loud, generally trashy movies. Picking up where our last speed round left off, we talk about The Dark Knight, WALL*E, Man on Wire, Wanted, and others. Dump the lemonade, brew a pot of something warm, and bid adieu to the summer's second half.
