Continuing our holiday tradition, Michael DiGiovanni from The Atomic Geeks joins us to ring in the holiday season. On the docket this year is a quest to assemble the ultimate Hallmark Channel or ABC Family quality Christmas romance movie. We don't quite get there, but we do pitch four excellent examples of the genre and empty IMDB's reservoir of 90s D-list celebrities in a stunt casting exercise you won't want to miss.

We once again celebrate the Day of the Ninja. This time Jeeg and Pax give a spin to the Wachowskis styled modern classic, Ninja Assassin. This movie has it all:  katanas, ultraviolent action, a Korean pop star, fusillades of shurikens, a connection to the britcom Coupling, and Sho Kosugi. Of course we love it. Stick around for Nerd To Dos that include the unique pairing of James Bond and Aquaman.
