Killing Them Softly / Top 5 Inept Criminals / Cooley High

Like Nic Cage in "Raising Arizona," last night Josh had a dream... a dream he and Adam were going to discuss the H.I. McDonnough Memorial List of the Top 5 Inept Movie Criminals, inspired by the new Brad Pitt crime drama "Killing Them Softly." Plus, cut school and cue up the Motown for the 5th Blaxploitation Marathon film, "Cooley High."
