Favorite Moment in Cinematic History: "Oh, this is a tough one. There are so many to choose from... Probably when the black wolf was chasing Benji in Benji the Hunted and the black wolf ends up flying off a cliff. Either that or the solo dance scene in the barn in Footloose, which is even more powerful than Emilio Estevez's baked dance scene in The Breakfast Club. I love dance. And dogs."

Favorite Moment in Cinematic History: "Easy. The urethral scream of 'bruno' in Bruno. I haven't enjoyed something that much since I went to my first movie in the theater when I was five. It was The Program. I showed all of my kindergarten friends how to play the lying in the street game. It was awesome."

A match-up for the ages. A personal rivalry as old as time. These men do not like the cut of one another's jib. Not one bit.

Let's hope you got your nap in. This West Coast thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.
