Concluding this year's Arthouse Rejects is a listener selection about a family man trapped in a very twisted day with his family at Walt Disney World. Escape From Tomorrow is as well known by how they made the movie more than the movie itself as the filmmakers used guerilla tactics to film inside the park without permits a film is is very much not family friendly. But does the outcome warrant more acclaim than the critics gave it credit or does the film deserve a strong dose of Cat Flu? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and special guest Jesse whose selection is what is being discussed.

For nearly 20 years after Frank Herbert's epic space saga Dune reached bookshelves, talks of making a film version had been in the winds. But it would be powerhouse producer Dino DeLarentiis who would eventually get the project completed with up and coming cinema visionary David Lynch. After rumbings of dissatisfaction on the set and between director and producer, Lynch's vision of an alien world hundreds of thousands of years into the future where a mystical prophesy could be the key to a galactic power struggle came to the screen. The resulting mob of hate from fans and critics alike would drive Lynch away from big budget film productions for good. But did the film deserve to be eaten by monster worms or could this film be misunderstood? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Jonolobster awaken the sleeper to find out.

1997 a golden year in films with such titles as L.A. Confidential and Titanic. The Man Who Knew Too Little was NOT one of those films. Starring Bill Murray during his mid-90s slump, this British farcical comedy about a dim-witted American caught up in international intrigue left critics cold and audiences colder. But were they wrong to turn their back on this film or should it have been left in a nameless ditch? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster find out.
