American Hustle offers a glimpse into the life of Con Artist Irving Rosenfeld(Christian Bale), his sexy and seductive partner Sydney Prosser(Amy Adams), as they are forced to work for the FBI with Agent Richie DiMaso to try and arrest corrupt white collar criminals. In this hilarious farce a comedy of errors ensue with the stakes being continually raised by characters like New Jersey Camden Mayor Carmine Polito(Jeremy Renner) and Rosenfeld’s wife, Rosalyn(Jennifer Lawrence). Tune in to find out what we thought of this cunning confidence film.

Also on the program this week, DJ Falanga of Tech Trek here on BTR stops in to discuss the best and worst in video game movies. Obviously when it comes to games and cinema, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so some of these may not line up with your favorites. Check out the videos below to see what I mean. Also, below those is some of the test footage from Neill Blomkamp’s attempt at a Halo film.

As always on RAR, we like to think that some films just stand out as great and are worth revisiting. Check out our list segment of what confidence films and flashy heist movies we love to revisit. Take The Sting for instance.
