  1. I know I’m a month behind, but I’m surprised Anderson didn’t have “The Thin Red Line” on his list. It’s another movie with multiple narrators.

  3. Anderson – Did you have to bust out the Heimlich at the Avengers? Mouth breathing fat people eating tubs of popcorn seems like a bad combination.

  4. I understand that you like to keep the focus on films, but here’s a biographical question this episode brought up: How can Anderson have been both a nerd and the quarterback?. Great podcast, and keep up the Amazon reads – interesting to hear what other TFV fans buy.

  7. What a shame! March of the Penguins is one of the best narrated films ever made. Morgan Freeman’s voice enraptures the viewers in the narration of one of nature’s most astonishing love stories. I put this film on the top of my list.

  10. Top 5 narrative films are: 1. Shawshank; 2. Casino; 3. Forest Gump; 4. Clock Work Orange; 5. Good Fellas.
    Zombieland are fucking kidding me but I do agree getting the great Earl Mann to narrate Idiocracy was a stroke of genius.

    Give Brain a brain tumor pass but Anderson what’s your excuses and saying don’t want to use my best choices because talked about them too much is the true definition of Idiocracy.

    Love the show but don’t fuck it up by being stupid.

  12. One of favorite segments from “Adaptation” from character Robert McKee giving the seminar on script writing.

    “And God help you if you use voice-over in your work, my friends. God help you. That’s flaccid, sloppy writing. Any idiot can write a voice-over narration to explain the thoughts of a character.”

  15. I’m ready to make the call (SNIIIIIFFFFFFF):
    “Shawshank Redemption” now trumps “Lost in Translation” as “most overrated movie of my lifetime.”
    I’m not a hater, and I like Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins. A few months ago I even saw a very rare film titled “Bob Roberts” in which Robbins plays a senatorial candidate against Gore Vidal… and I thought that it was better than Shawshank.

  19. The term is “omniscient narrator” not “omnipotent”. “Omniscient” means “all knowing”, whereas “omnipotent” means “all powerful”. Unless your narrator happens to be god, or god-like (such as “Bruce Almighty”) you don’t use the term “omnipotent.”

  20. I eagerly await Bryan losing this week’s bet & having to watch Irreversible. If any movie needed a Snifftrax.

    Also, count me in liking Anderson’s “Way Yay/Nay” system.

  21. In that cartoon Bryan looks like Michael Berryman, the guy from “Hills Have Eyes”, “Weird Science”, and “Devil’s Rejects”. (It captures him well)

  22. Full Metal Jacket was entirely filmed in the UK. The Vietnam sets were parts of England supplemented with palm trees imported from Spain. The city battle (Hue) was filmed on the Isle of Dogs in East London which was an abandoned gas works which was slated for demolition. Sorry Anderson, I hate to have to agree with BB.

  23. From imdb: “The entire film was shot in England (Pinewood Studios and Bassingbourn Barracks). Footage of an actual graduation ceremony at Parris Island was used in the film, with an insert from England added to it. For the final battle scenes set in Hue, Stanley Kubrick was able to use the abandoned gasworks town of Beckton on the River Thames. Researchers painstakingly went through dozens of shots of the real Hue in order to make sure Beckton looked authentic, and palm trees were brought into the area to create a tropical effect.”

    Way to know your favourite director’s stuff, Anderson. 😉
    Great show as always fellas.
