Mamo #52: By George I Think They've Got It.

Well, it only took us upwards of a year, but we finally spent last week's show being nothing but right. Join us, as we bask in our own glow and look ahead to Miami Vice, won't you?

Mamo #51: Lost weekend

What do you do when everything in theatres sucks? Download a Mamo of course, where we will continue our on-the-ground ruminations upon the summer of 2006: the three-way tie between Shyamalan, Monster House, and Kevin Smith; the unstoppable force that is Pirates; the stakes for Superman; and the degree to which at least one of the Matts really can't seem to pick a good box office number to save his life.

mamo #50: The Biggest

Our 50th show, and yet strangely reminiscent of all our other shows. Thanks to everyone for listening, and keeping us going. Here's to fifty more.

Mamo #49: Poor Superman

Is Mamo the kiss of death for quality, big-budget Hollywood spectacle? A year after Batman Begins' slow crawl to $200 million, and six months after King Kong's nut-busting domestic under-performance, the (relatively) tame opening weekend for Superman Returns can't help but make a fella wonder if every movie he loves the pants off of is going to end up being less than what the public desires. Or maybe it is all just a gigantic coincidence, involving pirates, spiders, and Meryl Streep.
