ImageGoing to the cineplex or IMAX this weekend? Every Friday morning at 9 a.m. you can listen to Mike Schulz dish on recent movie releases & talk smack about Hollywood celebs on the Quad City Rocker ROCK 104-9FM, with the fabulous morning team of Rock1049.com. The morning crew previews upcoming releases, too.

Or you can check the Reader Web site and listen to their latest conversation by the warm glow of your computer.

Never miss a pithy comment from these three scintillating pundits again.

Friday, December 2, 2011: Discussion of "The Muppets," "Hugo," "Arthur Christmas," "Happy Feet Two," and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," and previews of... nothing. Nothing at all. Nothing new opens at Quad-Cities cineplexes this weekend. Which means that Mike has to spend his entire Friday stuck in the office. Poor bastard.

Friday, November 18, 2011: Discussion of "J. Edgar," "Jack & Jill," and "Immortals," and previews of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" and "Happy Feet Two." All this, plus memories of a drunken "Sideways" viewing, Al Pacino impressions, and what "Twilight" might've been had Edward been played by the Count from "Sesame Street." No show next week, folks -- Happy Thanksgiving!

Friday, November 11, 2011: This week, the guys chat with Emilio Estevez. Emilio Estevez! "The Breakfast Club"! "Repo Man"! "The Mighty Ducks"! They also discuss "The Way," "Tower Heist," "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," and "Anonymous," and preview "Immortals," "J. Edgar," and "Jack & Jill," but still... . Emilio Estevez!

Friday, November 4, 2011: Discussion of "In Time," "Puss in Boots," and "The Rum Diary," previews of "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," "Tower Heist," "Anonymous," and "The Way," a deserved plug for Bluebox Limited's new iTunes release "Impulse," and -- as is wont to happen -- a conversational detour into the continued joys of "Megafault," the cinematic gift that just keeps on giving.

Friday, October 28, 2011: Discussion of "Paranormal Activity 3," "Johnny English Reborn," and "The Three Musketeers," and previews of "The Rum Diary," "In Time," and the "Shrek" spin-off "Puss In Boots"... though the guys agree that a movie that instead starred that falsetto-voiced Gingerbread Man had the potential to be way funnier.

Friday, October 21, 2011: Discussion of "Footloose," "The Thing," and "The Big Year," and previews of "Paranormal Activity 3," "The Three Musketeers," "Johnny English Reborn," and "The Mighty Macs." You'll notice that, as he was two weeks ago, Dave is conspicuously silent during the broadcast. Vegas this time. Freakin' slacker.

Friday, October 14, 2011: Discussion of "The Ides of March," "Real Steel," and "Courageous," and previews of "Footloose," "The Thing," and "The Big Year"... none of which is alloted as much time as the guys' cheerful reminiscence on the tacky joys of "Jaws: The Revenge." When's that 80s remake hitting the cineplex?!

Friday, October 7, 2011: Discussion of "50/50," "Dream House," and "What's Your Number?", and previews of "The Ides of March" and "Real Steel." You'll notice that Dave remains curiously silent thoughout the segment. Vacationing in Pennsylvania tends to have that effect.

Friday, September 30, 2011: Previews of "50/50," "Dream House," "What's Your Number?", and "Courageous," and discussion of "Moneyball," "Abduction," "Dolphin Tale," and 'Killer Elite," a ho-hum action-thriller in which Robert De Niro gives a surprisingly good performance. Isn't it depressing that the man's recent career choices have pretty much forced us to qualify his every "good" with "surprisingly"?

Friday, September 23, 2011: Back and better than ever, the guys preview "Moneyball," "Killer Elite," "Abduction," and "Dolphin Tale," discuss "Drive," "Contagion," "Warrior," "The Debt," "Straw Dogs," and "I Don't Know How She Does It," and join in the trashing of "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star," even though none of them have seen it. Of course, no one else did, either.

Friday, September 2, 2011: In the guys' final Friday-morning broadcast... 'til September 23 (sorry for getting anyone's hopes up there)... discussion of "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," "Our Idiot Brother," and "Sharks 3D," and previews of "The Debt," "Apollo 18," "Seven Days in Utopia," and "Shark Night 3D." Hmm. If only there was some way to avoid being eaten by a shark while spending a weekend at a lakeside cabin... !

Friday, August 26, 2011: Discussion of "Fright Night" and "One Day," and previews of "Our Idiot Brother," "Colombiana," and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark." With lengthy, tangential banter about the effectiveness of devil-doll movies and the filmography of late character actor Michael Sarazin, because these subjects are more interesting to discuss than this year's slate of late-August releases.

Guess which one is no longer playing at a theater near you?

Friday, July 22, 2011: Discussion of "Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" and "Winnie the Pooh," and previews of "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Friends with Benefits."

Friday, July 15, 2011: Discussion of "Horrible Bosses" and "Zookeeper," and previews of "Winnie the Pooh" and "Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the latter of which Darren demands to be told the ending to, on air. SPOILER ALERT! There are no on-air spoilers.

Those looking forward to a Dave & Darren segment with absolutely no mention of sequels are advised to return in, oh, two-and-a-half months or so.

Friday, May 20, 2011: Discussion of "Bridesmaids," "Priest," and "Jumping the Broom," and a preview of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

Friday, May 13, 2011: Discussion of "Thor" and "Something Borrowed," and previews of "Priest" and "Bridesmaids"... with two audio clips from the latter film, because the second clip is too grossly funny not to be heard.

Friday, May 6, 2011: Discussion of "Fast Five," "Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs.

Plus, Mike gets a verbal smackdown for his disinterest in the TV series "Community." Somewhere, Chevy Chase is smiling.

Why Hollywood hasn't yet run with this idea remains a mystery.

As an FYI, there'll be no new segment on the 10th, or on the 24th, or on the 31st, and potentially no segment on the 17th, either. So if this is it for the year... catch you in 2011!

This week, the guys preview "Paranormal Activity 2" and "Hereafter," and discuss "Jackass 3D," "RED," "Life as We Know It," "My Soul to Take," "It's Kind of a Funny Story," and a movie not currently on Quad Cities' screens, the Ryan Reynolds thriller "Buried." That latter title prompts Dave and Darren's creation of the adjective "Mackle," as in, "Ryan Reynolds gets totally Mackled in that movie." Inspired by the experiences of one Barbara Jane Mackle.

Friday, February 26, 2010: Discussion of "Shutter Island" and "A Single Man," and previews of "The Crazies" and "Cop Out," the latter of which begs the question: Has there been a decent buddy-cop movie released since "Turner & Hooch"?

Friday, February 5, 2010: Discussion of "Edge of Darkness," "When in Rome," and the 2010 Oscar nominations, and previews of "From Paris with Love" and "Dear John." Think you can't imagine anything more soul-draining than an audio clip from a Nicholas Sparks adaptation? Try listening to two of 'em.

Friday, January 22, 2010: Discussion of "The Lovely Bones," "The Book of Eli," and "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans," and previews of "Extraordinary Measures," "Legion," and "Tooth Fairy."

Friday, December 11, 2009: Discussion of "Brothers," "Armored," "Everybody's Fine," and "Transylmania," and previews of Disney's "The Princess & the Frog" and Clint Eastwood's "Invictus."

The Story of Anvil," and a preview of "Couples Retreat." With two clips from the movie, because it's the only new release opening this weekend. Hollywood is perverse.

Friday, October 2, 2009: Discussion of "Surrogates," "Pandorum," and "Fame," and previews of "Capitalism: A Love Story," "Whip It," "The Invention of Lying," and "Zombieland" -- the latter of which features the undead getting splattered with car doors, a desperate search for Earth's last box of twinkies, Jesse Eisenberg, and an 80-minute running length.

With references to early high points in Jason Bateman's career, among them "Teen Wolf Too," "The Hogan Family," "Silver Spoons," and the "Silver Spoons" spin-off "It's Your Move." Yes.
