This one gets rowdy as we discuss the recent big budget disaster Dolittle with Vulture Associate Editor Jordan Crucchiola. We also chat about the best and worst flops of all time. Alonso almost kills Ify for saying that he likes the movie Warcraft. And, as always, we’ve got staff picks.

In news, Disney gets rid of the “Fox” from 20th Century Fox, the CEO of the Hallmark Channel parent company Crown Media steps down, and Robert Downey Jr. has some thoughts on his role in Tropic Thunder.

Staff Picks:

Ify – Midsommar
Alonso – Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life
Drea – The Long Kiss Goodnight
Jordan – Riot Girls.

With Ify Nwadiwe, Alonso Duralde, Drea Clark, and Jordan Crucchiola.
