04/24/2011 06:34 pm ET | Updated Jun 24, 2011

It's time for another trip into the depths of the Black Hole -- the Black Hole Ultra Lounge Podcast, that is, this time brought to you with all the excitement of D-Box motion simulation. So strap yourself in and get ready for a bumpy ride as Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski ruminate on the philosophical questions plaguing sophisticated aficionados of horror, fantasy, and science fiction cinema. To wit: How high a batting average does a genre filmmaker need to maintain in order to be considered a power hitter? Are the twin titanic terrors of of type-casting and sequels to blame for career slumps of otherwise stellar talents? Is the D-Box motion-simulator chair the only way to truly enjoy Inception? Does the premise of J.J. Abrams' Super 8 (kids filming a movie encounter real-life monsters) suggest a pint-sized version of George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead?

All that, and more, on this episode of the Ultra Lounge.
