  1. To hear Anderson say his brother is extreme is, well, quite funny! That ANDERSON would say it? So crazy!!!

  2. bald bryan kind of resembles droopy (the cartoon dog) and every time I see a picture of anderson I think to myself..that’s what he looks like? I know this has zero to do with the episode..i haven’t listened to it yet…but just saying for no particular reason

    also anderson looks almost like he should be a mma fighter or something

  7. How to tell a douchebag:

    Bryan: How old is she? She’s gotta be 55 years old?
    Non-douchebag response: Yeah she’s been around for a while/But she looks great/Who cares…she’s fantastic!

    Douchebag (Anderson) response: I wouldn’t know.

    Gotta love that his immediate repsonse is just to say “I don’t know” rather than something to keep the flow going.

  8. Yeah, kind of a lackluster summer, particularly in July/August. Dark Knight Rises was okayish. Paranorman was pretty good. But nothing would crack the top five list I did for the first half of the year unless I had to throw things off because of shifting the timeframe.

    (For the terminally bored, my first half faves here: http://authorjtanner.wordpress.com/2012/08/16/five-favorite-films-for-the-first-half-of-2012/)

    Fall is shaping up better. Looper was good (but I didn’t love it as much as Anderson–I didn’t really care much for the “your Cronicle is is my Looper!” switcharoo of the third act.) Frankenweenie looks fun for those who haven’t given up on old-school Burton. And Seven Psychopaths is ruining a lot of great moments in trailers–I hope there’s something left for the film.

  9. “The Master” just got in under the wire to qualify as a “summer film.”
    I’m glad that it didn’t make ANYONE’s list.

    Thanks for that story about Tarantino.
    If he insulted me in that manner I would say, “Hey, man– did you call it ‘Inglourious Basterds’ because ‘World War 2 Through the Eyes of a Twelve Year Old’ was just too long to be a title?”

  11. Completely agree with Anderson on the “We need to talk about Kevin” having funny moments, I laughed out loud on the “stamps” line as well…The soundtrack definitely helped making watching this movie a lighter experience for me. Great movie! Hooray for great female directors (by the way, a great top five theme)

  12. We don’t need to talk about Kevin anymore because it is bullshit and the book was way way better

  13. Anderson, I like the snake tattoo!

  14. Its rare that I disagree with Anderson about things that are discussed and his underlying distaste for the public at large keeps me coming back every week, but We Need to Talk about Kevin was not funny or light at any moment I can remember. It was sweet and I watched it on his suggestion, but man it made Winter’s Bone feel like Fantasia. I’m sure he would say as he did to Brian that we are being stuck up for saying so, but I love socially innappropraite humor of the nastiest sort, there just wasn’t a laugh in this movie. I don’t even think they were going for it and fell short. I just think it was supposed to be heavy and gloomy throughout and succeeded wildly. Easily worth the watch though as it was engaging and one of the best directed and uniquely crafted plots I’ve seen in a while. Still loving TFV and suggesting it to anyone who digs podcasts or discussing movies.

    • I studied psychology for four years.
      You know who laughs at things that other people find gloomy and disturbing?
      Sniffity-sniff SNIFF-SNIFFITY

      I don’t think that he is schizophrenic, but….
