Welcome back to our little weekly podcast here at Fandango, where our own Erik Davis and Sean O'Connell gather 'round their local water cooler to discuss the week's hottest movie news, as well as topics related to the new movies arriving in theaters this weekend.
Today we dig in to this new Kickstarter project started by Zach Braff, who's taking a page from the Veronica Mars book and turning to his fans to help fund his follow-up to the cult hit Garden State. The big question: should wealthy celebrities ask their fans to help fund their personal projects?
Meanwhile, Michael Bay is a filmmaker who does not need a Kickstarter, but does that mean he's worth our hard-earned dollars at the box office? We analyze the controversy surrounding one of Hollywood's most prolific personalities, and let you know whether his new movie Pain & Gain (in theaters this weekend) is worth seeing.
As always, thanks for listening and make sure you sound off in our poll and in the comments below.

Actors & actresses don't need funding for personal projects from Kickstarter, they're wealthy enough as is. As for Michael Bay, he and Joel Schumacher are both the "Crown Princes of Awful Movies", Bay more than Schumacher, but I'm hoping "Pain & Gain" won't suck like most of Bay's movies.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
