After poring over more than 90 episodes recorded over the course of 2013, Laremy has put together a nearly three our "best of" episode to celebrate the Brad 'n' Laremy on Movies podcast revisiting topics from the introduction of John C. Reilly the security guard, the first listener voicemail, a few of our reviews (Movie 43, Fast & Furious 6 and Oldboy), the discovery of Smaaauuuug, Metacritic vs. RottenTomatoes and much, much more. We hope you enjoy this look back at the year and we look forward to a whole new year of shenanigans on the RopeofSilicon podcast.

The Fall 2013 Movie Box-Office Draft competition involved both Brad and Laremy "drafting" ten films each in hopes of scoring the largest net total by taking a film's worldwide gross subtracting two-and-a-half-times the reported budget. The film must be released in September through December 2013. The draft took place on August 20, 2013 during the RopeofSilicon Podcast which you can listen to right here.
Listed above is all the most recent data as of this post. Budgetary information is not necessarily accurate and will most likely not be accurate until closer to or after each film's release.
