Sam and Tom get on down in their tightest spandex and buttless chaps combination for discussions of Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike and the rebooted The Amazing Spider-Man. They also have a couple of quick conversations about Killer Elite and Killer Joe, not really noting the ‘Killer’ connection but certainly noting the evolution of Matthew McConaughey’s face. The music in the show this week splits three ways – The Weather Girls’ ‘It’s Raining Men’ and Foreigner’s ‘Feels Like the First Time’, both from Magic Mike, and ‘No Way Down’ by The Shins from The Amazing Spider-Man soundtrack. Be thankful the choice from the latter wasn’t Coldplay.
