This Week: Your Favourite Movie Monologues.

You've seen 'em; movie monologues.  It's the speech, usually at a pivotal point in the plot, turning it around and onto its head or underscoring a dramatic crescendo. Which ones are your favourites and why? Which ones are notable?  Which ones are forgotten, or underappreciated?  Are you a "mad as hell"?  Maybe you're a cuckoo clock?  Or, perhaps you're an Independence Day.  Lets us know your favourites, or your notables, at all the usual places:

#403 - Over/Under: Albums




The show is finally back, taking on the subject that they left you hanging with last month!

0:00:00 - Spike's inner Burt seems to be broken, but there's correspondence, a Larry King impression and a drinks update. Well, at least one of them is happy...

0:05:30 - Paul seems to be suffering from a Week In Stuff-related bout of memory loss and lives purely in the moment. The Old Spike-recommended "The Draughtsman's Contract" seems to fall somewhat flat, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" raises a few eyebrows, there's post-apocalyptic fun with the movie adaptation of "The Road", post-turning-into-a-bug fun with Kafka's "Metamorphosis" and a surprising album that has made it's way into Pablo's top albums of all time...

0:28:50 - Poor Spike's been without a DVR and been made a captive audience to basic cable, which lead him to watch an entire day of Animal Planet's Cops-like "Animal Cops". To Netflix (drink!) and on Paul's advise on a previous show, "The Book Of Eli". Beware... there's possible spoilers! No spoilers, only hilarity as Spike reveals his shameful addiction to a truly terrible Scottish soap opera.

0:39:47 - This week's subject has echos of a previous show, as P&S revisit Over/Under albums. The cheeky chappies make their picks, and the varied commentariat make their picks too, for the albums they feel are over-rated, and those they feel are under-rated.


On next week's show: your favourite movie monologues.

We're Back! Over/Under: Albums

Hellooooo!  Spike here!  Paul and I will be back this week after our unexpected hiatus.  Thanks again for all your very kind comments and well-wishings, you're a lovely bunch.  I'm recovering well, eating well and exercising a lot, and my chest has healed enough to where it's not too painful to guffaw; my self-imposed requirement to coming back, such are the dangers of working with Mr Higginbotham.

It figures that we pick up where we left off, and complete the show we threw the topic out for last month: Over/Under albums.

You know the drill by now, pick two albums - one of them you think is over-rated for whatever reason, the other you feel is under-rated.  Feel free to be controversial, we love it when a sacred dinosaur is eloquently gored, and be as explanatory as you feel you need to be.  We won't judge your choices too harshly, even if you pick "The Challengers Enter A New Dawn" as your under.

If you submitted your picks last month when we first asked the question, you're all set.  We still have those entries, and unless you want to clarify or change your choices, you can put your feet up and relax.  Everybody else, please get your entries in by 6pm US/e on Wednesday (10pm UK).

Sign in at paulandspike.com using your existing Twitter or Facebook accounts and leave your picks in the comments.
