Nick Jimenez, co-host of Geekeasy returns to the show. This time, we record a commentary for the film Eagle Eye. The movie reunites Shia LaBeouf with the Director of Disturbia, D.J. Caruso. Both pictures were Executive Produced by Steven Spielberg.

Unfortunately, these big names do very little for the quality of the film itself which is plagued by absurdly massive plot holes (the super computer needs to be unlocked in order to perform tasks it spends the entire movie already carrying out just fine), forced and manufactured tension (why does a brief case have a digital timer on it anyway? It's not even a time-sensitive bomb!) and underwritten characters (Rosario Dawson, you turned down a role written specifically for you by Kevin Smith for this?).

Please join Nick and I as we shrug and laugh our way through this entertaining but stupid, popcorn actioner. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the movie on your DVD.

Good work, guys. Some very funny stuff, especially toward the end. However, I can\'t believe you blamed Indy 4 on Lucas. Spielberg has to bear most of that burden. And the president isn\'t just a figurehead, but Aria can\'t know what his replacement would do. Dumb plan. Dumb target. Could have been good, tho.
