Top 5 Survival Movies / The Impossible / Animal Crackers

Everybody knows the first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. But Filmspotting joins Tyler Durden in exploring their primal selves with a countdown of the Top 5 Survival Movies. Plus, Adam and Josh barely emerge unscathed from their discussion of "The Impossible" before taking on their first Marx Bros. Marathon movie, "Animal Crackers."
