In 1975, as America was about to celebrate its bicentennial, critically acclaimed filmmaker Robert Altman was hard at work at making his contribution to the festivities in his film Nashville. A sprawling epic starring 24 noted actors about the lives and dreams of the citizens of the state capitol of Tennessee and self-proclaimed "Music City of the World". The critics deemed it a game changing piece of cinema while audiences didn't buy much into it. But does it deserve to belong or should it be outcast? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster take their seats at the Grand Ole Opry to find out.

As two comic book titans are about the square off against one another in theaters, Arthouse Legends has decided to weigh in on the fight over fifty years in the making. On one corner, we look at Superman from his 1978 film directed by Richard Donner. On the other, we look at Batman as directed by Tim Burton from 1989. Both were widely recieved with acclaim that has survived recastings, remakes and Bat-nipples. But which one is better superhero? And more importantly, which is the better film? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster measure the tale of the tape to find out.

On the 100th Episode of Arthouse Legends, MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster return to the Family Business with Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo as they tackle the first sequel to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, The Godfather Part II. Gone are Marlon Brando and James Caan, but in their place are new family members and newer threats. Critics and audiences consider this the pivotal sequel that rivals the original. But does that fly with our three geeks or does it need to take a ride on the boat?
