This time around, Mike and the bots riff on modern blockbusters. This is a gem for those of you who might want to see what it would be like when they take on a little less cheesy fare. I never saw Contact or The Fifth Element, so I'm not sure of their degrees of cheesiness, but Batman and Robin deserved everything that hit them. The villains also occupy the theater for a while, which is interesting, but Pearl is really the only one who gets going. I don't remember them showing Titanic and Starship Troopers, though. This was followed by one more Blockbuster Review, featuring Ever After, Halloween: H2O, The Truman Show, etc. Good fun. Anyway, 10/10, short and hits the mark every time.
