Movie Meltdown - Episode 221

This week we welcome one of our favorite people back to the show. You may know Doug Jones as the Silver Surfer, or as Abe Sapien, or from Pan's Labyrinth, or from his many other numerous roles - but this week, you'll just know him as special guest co-host of "Movie Meltdown". And after catching up with Doug, we delve into this week's movie... David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook". As it turns out, Doug worked with David O. Russell in the past, and we find out if that set was subject to O. Russell's notorious directing style.
