This is how you fill a podcast. On top of inviting in Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist to review Gangster Squad we have so much to talk about this Friday. Topics include a look at our most anticipated movies of 2013, a look at the 2013 Oscar nominations, a look at last night's Critics' Choice Awards and a look forward to Sunday's 2013 Golden Globes, which Laremy and I will be live-blogging right here at 8 PM EST / 5 PM PST.
We managed to keep this one down to 101 minutes and hopefully packed it full of entertaining conversation without overstaying our welcome. I wanted to expressly thank all of you that have reviewed the podcast on iTunes and just say 2013 is already off to a great start!
As always, I have broken down this episode on a minute-by-minute basis if you would like to skip ahead and below I have featured the information on how to download the podcast, find us on iTunes or merely just listen in your browser.

The Fall 2012 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 between the months of September-December 2012. The draft took place on August 28 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.
