The last podcast of 2012 sees us catch up on releases from the past ten days. They include the dubiously-casted “Jack Reacher,” the aca-entertaining “Pitch Perfect,” and Bette Midler’s return to the screen in family comedy “Parental Guidance.” We snubbed the 3D showing of “Life of Pi,” but still discuss its visual prowess in length, and also chat about directors with a history of elevating their source material. All of this, plus a discussion about the hotly-contested Foreign Language Oscar race, and a pitch for a Greer Garson biopic.
