Buzzard / Filmspotting Madness / Top 5 Characters on the Fringe

Bill Murray vs. Tilda Swinton... Emma Stone vs. Sam Rockwell... Just a couple of the first-round matchups in Filmspotting Madness, a month-long battle royale to determine Filmspotting Nation’s favorite working actor. Adam and Josh kick off the tournament and share their Top 5: Characters on the Fringe. Plus, a review of BUZZARD, a new indie in which an unruly office temp fights the power while wearing a customized Power Glove.
