It’s Hollywood versus the world! In this episode, Chris, Frank, Eric, and Dimitri recommend movies from across the globe. Then they have an untypically serious conversation on the implications of Paramount releasing The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (2011) internationally nearly two months before tackling the domestic market. Finally, in a blast-from-the-past deleted scene, Kazim and Dimitri try to come up with a cross-culture spin on the Rambo franchise. Come back next time as we celebrate the new year.
