  3. I love the show, been listening a long time. I usually agree with everything Anderson has to say, and very little of what Bryan spews. Speaking of Bryan…

    I get it, Bryan thinks he’s cute, or funny, or something with his off handed racist joking. But joking or not, it is getting annoying. It’s just getting old…like the dad who always responds to, “did you get a haircut?” with, “Nope, I got them all cut.” He thinks it’s witty, but it’s not. And yet, people indulge him, so he keeps doing it.

    Find something else for your schtick. You’re better than that.

  5. How could anyone on earth not like both Inception and Elf?!?! I get how you could be a person that hates one but loves the other…but to hate both…that’s just silly. You must be an angry elf!

  6. Great episode, guys! Really, this podcast was a shining example of why I keep listening every week.

    Oh, who am I kidding? I was hooked from the start. Just listen to this genesis of the podcast: http://kiwi6.com/file/lb2rd9fwq6

  7. This is a response to Bryan’s appearance on ‘Alison Rosen is your new best friend,’ but I wanted to leave it here because it’s Bryan-centric: Mr. Bishop, you are the best. To list all the reasons would be embarrassing. If you ever do a walk in the New York area, just send out the clarion call and you’ll get the support plus one pint from yours truly. All the luck in the world.

    To Anderson: What has taken you long to do ‘Top Five Rape Sequences’? Is the problem that it would essentially be a list of your top five favorite films? Maybe if you did ‘Top Five Sex Scenes,’ and we could all have an over-under on how many center on rape.

  9. Please, please explain how this episode about heists that starts with Bryan talking about Paul Newman’s silver screen transcendence and doesn’t mention The Sting? Not even an also ran? I love Butch Cassidy too, but that movie is very uneven compared to The Sting.

  10. Oh Bryan, for Christ sake, watch Inside Man…i am not a SPike Lee fan AT ALL, but he really did a good job with this one, he kept his usual BS out of it and made a great film. It’s intense, has plot twists, some funny moments…its a really a film that you would love. And Anderson would like it too if he ever watched it but he won’t because he’s an idiot.

  12. I’ve heard Bryan mention this podcast on Adam’s show, but this podcast is the first time I listened to it and loved it! Like Bryan, I love “Heat” one of my all time favorites. I also loved your featured artist, Natalie Wells! She is so talented and an amazing guitarist! I love film and music! Needless to say, I’m a new subscriber and looking forward to future episodes.
    Thank You Bryan and Anderson for this great film podcast and all the entertainment!

  14. You guys screwed up! Inside Man is FAR better than Heat. That Heat is an under-edited POS. Inside Man brought Spike Lee back from the ‘never watch again’ list. Great movie. Light on the racial politics. For once.

  15. One heist movie that I haven’t seen in several years but has stuck with me and went unmentioned this week is Welcome to Collinwood. Great cast, great writer/directors (the Russo brothers, best known for their work on the tv series Community). Good times. I would have thought this one would be right up Anderson and Bryan’s alley, but I guess not.

  16. I’m glad Bryan mentioned Sugar & Spice, its a great and surprisingly funny movie but it’s not for everybody it’s really a teen comedy. I’m also glad that Panic Room was on Bryan’s list and I totally forgot that was a Heist movie and I love that movie and that was back when Kristen Stewart wasn’t constantly biting her lip and showing no emotion.

  21. Its one of my favourite movies of all time. I feel so incredibly vindicated by Anderson’s #1. I always refer to it when it comes to a near perfect flick. Perfect pacing, dialogue is awesome, even the soundtrack is great. For likely the only time I feel like Anderson and I are one….

  24. Bryan played right into Anderson’s hand by messing up the plot of Inception. Technically the only heist was the opening sequence, the rest was implanting an idea.

  26. No mention of Mamet’s “Heist” in the heist film episode? Maybe not top five; but pretty good, and with Gene Hackman. Will definitely be checking out “The Good, The Bad, And The Weird” now.

  28. I’ve been listening to TFV for a while now and still can’t figure out Anderson’s political persuasion. From what I can tell he hates liberals, can’t stand conservatives, doesn’t much care for moderates, and is irritated by those that aren’t into politics. Great show, though.

  33. Great episode, was glad Bottle Rocket got an honorable mention. One great one that didn’t get a mention is the French movie Le Cercle Rouge. Long but awesome, has a half-hour long heist scene that keeps the tension going the whole time. Now I wanna go watch Stander and The Good, The Bad, The Weird.

  35. I’m so glad you mentioned The Lookout – definitely my number one.

    Had some topic ideas, too, if I may: Most Quotable Films, Most Rewatchable Films, Best Movies Critics Hated At The Time (there’s got to be a better way to word that), Best Movie Families, Best Performances by Non-Actors.

  36. Squaky wheel everyone! Spot on impression, Bryan!

    Very suprised by Anderson’s #1 and I still have NEVER seen Bryan’s #1. For shame on me! Mine would have been ‘A Simple Plan’, a minimalist heist film, maybe?

    Still waiting for Bryan’s review of Irreversible!
