Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Georgia, and Ethan (Liam's manning the getaway car) as we review Ben Affleck's 2nd directorial effort in the gritty Boston heist film, The Town - brought to us by BFF of the BFE, Rev Bruce who joins us for the Endgame on this episode.  We're talking Priuses in our 133rd episode as we discuss:

  • How this film follows the format of a romantic comedy if you excuse the overwhelming trauma involved in the meet-cute
  • Are we given enough time to feel sympathy for the characters in this film?
  • What efforts did Ben Affleck go to in order to create an aura of legitimacy in this film
  • Is Ben Affleck just remaking one of his other films and casting himself in the hero role, this go around
  • Whether Doug is justified in his final kills or does he go too far
  • Why does no-one pay attention to a character walking around with a duffel bag, ever
  • Which actors and actresses really surprised us in this film and someone besides Georgia suffers from a little face blindness
  • It's the return of Postlethwaite, and you know what that means
  • We're joined once again by our BFF: Reverend Bruce and discuss Baseball, Boston, and some Dunkin' Donuts
  • Georgia, Ian and Reverend Bruce all give their perspectives on how to deliver an affected accent
  • We briefly give some thoughts on Will Smith's apology, the passing of Paul Sorvino and the last episode of Nick & Russ Don't Know Anything
  • Whether or not The Town is the Best Film Ever.
