It’s the last episode of CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED at the Schmoes Know network! William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are picking up stakes and moving to THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED NETWORK (the soon-to-be-renamed CANCELED TOO SOON podcast feed), but before they go they want to say goodbye to all you lovely listeners, and take one long, last look at the best motion pictures of 2000-2009, now that we’ve had a decade to think them over!

Which films are standing the test of time? Which films that once seemed important don’t make much an impression anymore? Bibbs and Witney answer these questions and give you a great long list of great movies to watch, many of which you’ve probably never heard of!

Don’t weep for CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED! We’ll be back next week in our new podcast feed, and our other podcast THE TWO SHOT will stay right here at Schmoes Know!

The first theatrically-released live-action Marvel feature film wasn’t HOWARD THE DUCK! If you wanna get technical, it was RED SONJA, an adaptation of a character created for the CONAN THE BARBARIAN comic books, and unfortunately it’s not considered very good. At all.

This week on THE TWO-SHOT, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold revisit this cult sword-and-sandal film starring Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and pair it with one of the most important action movies that many American audiences never saw: YES, MADAM!, the motion picture debut of action superstar Cynthia Rothrock and the first starring role for motion picture legend Michelle Yeoh!
