Who cares that they didn't talk about the movie 'as much' this week? That happens with every director and actor they have as a guest. Smith's stories really added to this and I hope he comes back. The Bruce Willis tidbits I found particularly interesting. I never saw Cop Out, but I could see it definitely taking a hit in quality with someone half-assing it.
Seriously, Southland Tales was bad. It might be the only movie I've ever turned off.

The episode was fine, but I'm surprised to hear Kevin Smith hate on the Vince Vaughn/Russian nesting doll scene in The Watch. I must not be in the 25 year old male demo, because the scene almost killed me - Vaughn's childish delight at the revelation of each new doll was too funny for words.
I was very surprised at that tangent, but so glad it happened. When he first opened the doll and was shocked, I thought, "They're going to do that 4 more times aren't they?" And then they did. I saw that bit coming a mile away and just wanted to get on with the movie. Actually that's how the whole movie felt to me... It felt like it was trying to build toward something, but just never got around to it.
The first 20 minutes of Shaun of the Dead was building, and then everything gets amazing. The Watch? Nope. I had high hopes for that movie even though Vaughn never really did much for me, but I left underwhelmed.
To each their own though.
