It's a Joe vs. Ken DOUBLE SHOT today.

Our last two episodes of the year go up today...


Episode 30 - "Everybody is Ken" is now LIVE at www.joevsken.com

Joe sits back this time around while Ken runs down 5 movies he got to check out in the past week. Reviews include Nobel Son, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Valkyrie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Bedtime Stories. One of these movies just doesn't belong. Can you guess which one?

In the next episode of Joe vs. Ken - Joe will talk about the BD Live event with Christopher Nolan and the guys will run down their "Top 10 Movie of 2008".

Speaking of which...

Episode 31 - "Top Ten of 2008" is ALSO now LIVE at www.joevsken.com

Joe quickly describes the BD Live The Dark Knight screening event with Christopher Nolan before he and Ken run down their "Best of" for 2008.

Joe vs. Ken, Episode 29: Straight Up 

Episode 29 - "Straight Up" is now LIVE at www.joevsken.com

Joe and Ken look back on past Punisher films before reviewing the latest Punisher: War Zone starring Ray Stevenson.

Amazingly enough, this takes up most of this episode. Add a little bit of "what comic book property would you like to see made into a movie next?" and you got Joe and Ken getting back to what they do best.... straight up.

In the next episode of Joe vs. Ken - I promise we'll get to Ken's review of Nobel Son as well as his thoughts on Valkyrie and more. Joe will sit quietly and inject an "uh huh" or "yeah" once in a while.

In Theaters: Frost/Nixon, Nobel Son 

Nobel Son:

Nobel Son is aggressive in many ways: its humor is aggressive, its violence is aggressive, its sarcastic tone is aggressive, even its omnipresent score is aggressive. This approach can work if you handle it with a sharp world-weariness; if, as the great sage once said, you “act like you’ve been there before.” But handle that same level of aggression with the awkward look-at-me showiness of someone playing around with Big Boy tools for the first time and a movie can quickly become unbearable, wearing out its welcome within minutes of the opening titles. Nobel Son is that latter movie, so intent on proving itself that you scarcely have time to breathe. Or care.

Frost/Nixon:

When President Richard Nixon resigned from office, he refused to give what many thought was their due: an admission of wrongdoing, and an apology for abusing his power. Nixon’s sins were numerous, and many news organizations were clamoring to get the first post-resignation Nixon interview.

Joe vs. Ken, Episode 25: There Was No Anal 

Episode 25 - "There Was No Anal" is now LIVE at www.joevsken.com

Ken revisits his Netflix argument and also shares a recent PC World blog post that may very well confirm his Blu Ray prediction from almost a year ago. The guys get to put on their smart-guy hats and talk about the future of media for a bit.

Also, more vampire talk (can we please stop!?) with a review of Let the Right One In. And this one will shock you... they bitch about a few movie theater patrons.

On the next Joe vs. Ken: In honor of The Dark Knight hitting video next week, Joe and Ken take you down memory lane with a Batman retrospective.
