Mamo #65: All this has is a guy being tortured and beat up and fighting with knives

Mamo, November Mamo. Yes, Bond is upon us, as is The Simpsons trailer, Happy Feet, and the questionable morality of Borat. Join us in a rambling free form discussion of all of this plus more as we round out our 65th installment of Mamo.

Mamo #64: Very nice, Borat

After the Borat Incident claimed our ability to see Sacha Baron Cohen's film in its entirety at the Toronto International Film Festival, the reputed comedy event of the century finally hits the big screens, and the big screens hit back with a phenomenal gross.

Mamo #63: Grizzled, Gritty, Glorious

Oscar hopefuls abound, and zounds it's time to take a peek at that venerable workhorse, the war picture. Since the box office onslaught of Saving Private Ryan, nobody seems to be able to hit the target for the greatest generation. Why not? Plus, Superman Returns some more, and our meals arrive with extra lemon. So gird yourself for a stirring shot of Mamo.
