Then in the second half, the guys step into the realm of martial arts films with "the Godfather of Hong Kong cinema", Chang Cheh and his film "Duel of the Iron Fist" from 1971. There are new retro releases on blu-ray and DVD this week, including a re-released Jurassic Park collection. Finally, the guys end the show on a rant about movie spoilers across the internet.
