Greetings! This week, former animator and current brilliant cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks (The Last of Us: American DreamsThe Adventures of Superhero Girl) nerds out on the old-fashioned B-movie goodness of Ron Underwood's 1990 monster mash Tremors -- and honestly, how could she not? Your genial host Norm Wilner even allowed himself to be lured out of the basement for this one.

Hallo! This week, Kiva Reardon -- film critic and editor of the very worthy cléo journal -- finds the humor in the racism, sexism and general awfulness of Sacha Baron Cohen and Larry Charles' transgressive 2006 spectacle Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Your genial host Norm Wilner says: "You like, is nice."

As her first feature Wet Bum starts rolling into theaters, writer-director Lindsay MacKay brings Lynne Ramsay's 1999 drama Ratcatcher into the basement. Your genial host Norm Wilner is considerate enough to bring up neither bums nor rats.

Welcome back! This week, screenwriter Elan Mastai (The F Word, aka What If -- oh, you know, the one where Daniel Radcliffe pines for Zoe Kazan) shines a light on Noah Baumbach's post-collegiate character piece Kicking and Screaming. Your genial host Norm Wilner writes down all of Elan's clever observations so he can say them later at parties.
