This week, we're plagued by a lingering sickness, but we power through to chat about Spike Jonze's sci-fi romance, Her. What does it mean when Joaquin Phoenix falls in love with an operating system?

Ricky's out this week, so he missed the chance to chat about Upside Down, the movie about gravity that's not Gravity. Plus, Cameron and Rhea pitch new genres to a handful of our myriad celebrity listeners.

Rhea is out this week, but we deliver a spirited review of Olympus Has Fallen at her suggestion, and Ricky really scrapes the bottom of the barrel for a best part of this White House peril movie. Plus, Cameron and Ricky team up to pitch the next great "One Man Job" flick and make billions of dollars. Why didn't we think of this sooner?

We're back this week with a review of Robert Rodriguez's Desperado, which has nothing to do with the song by the Eagles, as far as we can tell. Plus, we're joined by Pop Culture Happy Hour's Glen Weldon to chat about the Movie That Made Him, and we'll help you make the most of this holiday season by suggesting some excellent, sophisticated movie/food pairings.

Glen is the author of Superman: The Unauthorized Biography, and you can (and should!) follow him on Tumblr and Twitter.

We present you with a particularly Swayze-heavy show this week, and we feel GREAT about it. Special guest Jordan Morris joins us to share the Movie That Made Him, we chat about the action brawler Road House, and we try to solve some real puzzlers. Are "coolers" a thing? Is Jean-Claude Van Damme really that good at splits? Why is Swayze on our minds in such a major way?

Here's that JCVD Volvo spot. What do you think -- real or fake?

We're taking next week off in observance of Thanksgiving, but we'll be watching Desperado for our 12/5 show -- it's available now on Netflix Watch Instant!
