Chris and Graham welcome back the Smartest Man in the World, Greg Proops! Some nice talk about the LA Podfest, what working on Phantom Menace was like and then an all out film noir nerd con! A blistering pace is set for all three nerds, in this themed episode, to talk about how growing up in San Francisco influenced Greg's love affair with noir. They discuss which ones are classic and should be remade. Graham asks Greg to defend his dislike of Miller's Crossing and much much more! This ep is like a dame with a nose for trouble, but her sweet pipes keep you coming back for more until you go down for the dirt nap.

Chris and Graham welcome The Stunt People, Eric Jacobus and Rebecca Ahn into the nerd HQ. They talk about their new film Death Grip (available in the CFN store) and why they made it. Along with what it takes to do fight choregraphy and the why the whole process of doing action films is more complex than regular films. Then all four nerd out over some of their favorite action films of all times. I'm sure someone will mention a film you haven't heard of! It's a martial arts/action film themed nerd-a-thon, so stretch out!!

Welcome back Laura House! You light up the nerd cave with some hilarious talk about Skyfall. Graham liked it and Laura did as well but was a little put off by Javier Bardem's hair. Chris had a good time with his family at Wreck it Ralph. And Graham liked Flight a little mroe than Laura. Some Ok DVDs this week. And of course its Twilight the final part of the epic endiing finale that is the second part of the conclusion. Also Silver Linings Playbook looks good. This is some good ol nerdery for your ears!

Feel the fun with Dean Haglund! Dean talks about his interview with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry that is on the CFN youtube page. And then a nice nerdy discussion about Cloud Atlas. All three really enjoyed the film and suggest that you see it well-rested. Then Graham goes into how they should of used the actual story about who discovered Mavericks rather than the Hollywood silliness of Chasing Mavericks. And the boys are a little hopeful that Disney will bring Star Wars back to its former glory. Chris, Graham and Dean are all fired up for Skyfall and Lincoln this weeked! If you like quantum mechanics and surfing then this episode is for you!
