    I’m glad they got around to how the studio blew it on Once Upon a Time in America. It was a horrid miscalculation by the studio to chop up the film and release a messy version of it.

    I’m with Roger on Field of Dreams. And I’m with Gene on Scrooged, although I do agree with Roger about the ending. I didn’t see Blue Velvet because the subject matter was a turnoff for me. But critical consensus heavily favored Gene on that movie and on She-Devil, which was a flop.

    One thing you’ll learn about these two critics is how unshakable they are (at least outside of “Broken Arrow”)!

      Don;t forget that Gene blames the reporting of the opening week’s grosses in their section of House of Games.

    I never knew they did a show like this. This was great. They should’ve done these every year. Three of the four films picked to debate were good targets for each other. Except for Scrooged, the others had the dissenting critic going out on a limb against other critics and the public. But Scrooged was a box office hit with mixed reviews. It wasn’t a good one to use to make the other guy look undeniably bad.
