Be Kind, Rewind: Remaking scenes from movies? Who does that? Lost Odyssey: Too old school? Gears of War 2: What are the essentials? Plus, Jeff's GDC vacation photos!

This week in Movies:

The newest flight of whimsy from the director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is Be Kind, Rewind, which finds Jack Black and Mos Def remaking scenes from classic movies on a shoe-string budget. Alex, Dan, and Jeff know a little something about doing that themselves, so they enter the film with a uniquely critical eye.

With the news of Akira and Black Hole live action projects finding directors, the guys discuss their history with Anime.

This week in Video Games:

The Xbox brand finally has its own grand, Final Fantasy-esque JRPG in the form of Lost Odessey. It even comes from Final Fantasy luminary, Hironbu Sakaguchi. Alex, Dan, and Jeff dive into the four-disc epic and disagree about what they find.

The Game Developer's Conference has become the source of some big game announcements in recent years. Confirmation this year of Gears of War 2 prompts the guys to consider what it would take to improve the series.

Peter Molyneaux's Fable 2 discussions continue to surprise. The guys react to another interesting innovation - or is it just a money grab?

Plus:

While he was in San Francisco guest-hosting Tekzilla, Jeff was able to check out some of GDC first-hand. He brought back some terrible, blurry vacation photos to share with the guys. Topics include Blizzard's apporach to multiplayer, Spore, Bionic Commando, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Wii Fit, and more independent games than you can shake a stick at.
