Now that Matt Price has caught up with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we’re both fairly convinced that the end of the world is nigh. Also, movies aren’t fun any more.
What’s up, Mamo listeners? This week we talk Apes, Marvel, Thor, Avengers, home video, money, and Hellboy 3. So, basically, what we always talk about.
Mamo reflects on the worst 4th of July weekend in 30 years of moviegoing, by way of ruminations upon Tammy, Transformers, The Sandman, TIFF, and Roger Ebert’s life itself (and its consequences for the documentary Life, Itself).

Happy summer, Mamo listeners!
