So as you can see I fell short of my own goal of getting this out along with the Podcast but Monday is better than Wednesday so yeah... Well if anything I'm happy with my own progress. 

Not too much to say this week besides we are always looking for your input and ideas on things we can do to improve the Podcast as well as our reach.  Both Bat and I are just trying to make sure that we done get stuck in a rutt and never improve so please send us feed back.

We both had some cameos that we expected in the movie but neither of them came to fruition. 

For myself I was really behind the rumor that Patrick Stewart was going to come on as the surprise Villian and have him be the father of Hans & Simon Gruber (Alan Rickman and Jeremy Irons from Die Hard 1 and 3).   The idea of them keeping that silly story line alive through a family vengance trope was a fun idea in my opinion.  I was pretty sad to see the "twist" they ended up going with as it pretty much left me feeling like i was watching a failed M. Night movie, but with more action.

Bat on the other hand was looking forward to an appearance by Justin Long.  It would have made sense with Mary Elizabeth Winstead being in the opening.  Hell it would have even made sense for him to be the "Computer Guy" trope.  Might have made sense of how Bruce Willis got away which the massive levels of destruction that he inflicted.

It kinda felt that our ideas would have had more of a home in this movie than the ones that actually did.

Wait for DVD/Bluray for this one ladies and gentelmen

Thats all for this edition.  Don't forget to tune in next week same Hammer time, same Bat channel.
