RAR is a movie review and entertainment news podcast that is not afraid of spreading spoilers or rumors. We review new films as well as yesterdays soundtracks that still resonate with us. Tune in for what’s hot and what’s not on the silver screen.

To review Shakespeare? Or not to review Shakespeare? That was a question RAR had to answer. On todays show we tackle Joss Whedon’s interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing. The cast is comprised of a bunch of Whedon’s favorite actors, all of whom have collaborated with him in the past, many of whom even owe him their respective careers.

Much Ado About Nothing follows the love stories of two couples. First, we have the hopeless romantics Hero and Claudio, who, through a series of unfortunate events, are tricked out of their arranged but passion filled marriage by the villainous Don Jon. Meanwhile we also have Beatrice and Benedick. These two begin the film by swearing off love as something just simply not for them, but through some mild persuasion and a bit of trickery, their friends get them to confess their love for one another.

We like Shakespeare and we loved this movie:

This week we introduce a new segment! Trends N Tropes is where we sit down to talk about the habits of Hollywood and what we think is behind it. This first edition of Tropes N Trends, we are joined by Jordan Reisman, host of Discovery Corner on BTR, to talk about bad criminals. And that’s not a redundancy; we mean criminals who are bad at crime and the trend of amateur crime movies, like Spring Breakers, The Bling Ring, Horrible Bosses, and more.

Lastly, be sure to check out the Mystery Science Trailer at the end of the program for our commentary on the next Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug. There’s a pretty dragon in it, we promise.

For ideal viewing we suggest you turn the volume down to 50%, and as always, be sure to buffer!
