The success of The Equalizer - it topped the box office with 35 million+ over the weekend - has us thinking about how, for some reason, right now is the moment that our culture has decided we want lots of movies about retirement-age men kicking hell of ass. Is it the continuing market power of the Boomers? Is it because we're having trouble finding new action stars so we're going back to the well? Or is it just that it's fun? We talk about that at length, plus the settlement between Marvel and the Jack Kirby Estate, the awesomeness of The Box Trolls, and the pros and cons of Gotham. Ross also babbles for a long time about copyright law, so grab a pillow!

The cast this week: Ross Lincoln, Bob "MovieBob" Chipman, and Inkoo Kang.
