It’s October. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, we break down the futuristic robot movie, “Real Steel,” with JD’s five-year-old son, Lincoln. Why are 1,000 pound robots so cheap? Why should you sell your stock in Apple and Google? And is it preferable to control your robot through voice control or mirror/shadow mode? All that, plus kindergarten science experiments, awkward LOST-meets-X-Men “rape” scenes, and lots of “California Love.” SPOILER ALERT!

  1. Matty O is like the Princess and the Pea with those fancy movie chairs….

  2. IMDB has it at 7,5 currently….. a nice rating I must say :) Gotta watch it

  3. Just so we can give all glory to JD for having a wonderful child, I wanted to clarify that Lincoln Doyle was birthed by him (and his wife, Rachel).

  4. Also, we should clarify that JE Skeets was doubled over in laughter during the movie’s climactic final bout. Not from intentional comedy, but from the best montage of 2011.

  5. Man, we made this episode WAAAAAAAY too short. I could’ve ranted about “Real Steel” for another 30 or 40 minutes easily.

  6. I enjoyed Lincoln vs. Matt more than I should’ve. Have him skip school every day please!

  7. There’s a guy in Reel Steel whos real name is Kevin Durand. Just sayin’

  8. Skeets censored his language!!

    “crap” not “shit!”

  9. Daddy Day Care: Canada Edition.

  10. Can anyone else imagine Matt as that guy who just destroys children’s dreams?

    “I’m a scientist!”
    “No you’re not.”

    That part was gold!
