  1. ZOMG THERE ARE SO MANY EPISODE SPOILERS IN THESE COMMENTS. I CAN’T SCROLL DOWN FAST ENOUGH ON MY LAPTOP TO AVOID THEM WHILE RIDING MY BIKE DAMNIT.

  3. Come on Bryan – the Versailes’ driver remarks were dumb and so rehearsed. I’m sure they came before they knew they had something better than just a parody of the rich. But you know that – so stop with the unnecessary fillers – you’re better than that.

  4. I know being prepared makes you uncomfortable, Anderson, but you’re so dang interesting when you’ve prepared! Excellent episode, guys. Thanks.

  5. I appreciate the warning about Amore, too. Anderson’s comments made me think of How Green Was My Valley. I really hate that movie for similar reasons. As for The Squid And The Whale, I consider it an almost perfect movie and I’m a lady person. My parents are divorced, but it didn’t happen until I was well into adulthood, and I practically begged my mom to do it. For me TSATW is about confronting the messiness and pain of life and I think that is pretty universal.

  8. Great episode guys. I have seen most of the movies in you top fives, and I totally agree. I loved Anderson’s number 5 and Bryan’ s number 3, one of my favorite movies. Regarding Anderson’s number 5, that little kid was so amazing, and sadly it was his only movie. Very good limited storytelling movie, made in 1953 by the way. Love the Cillian Murphy movie as well. Oh, an The Queen of Versailles was great too. And I saw The Last Stand as well. It is what it is, but I really loved it. Had a lot of funny stuff. And geriatric Arnold was great. Thanks for the great show.

  10. I love and cherish this podcast. I’m incredibly concerned that the misinformation contained in The Invisible War was lost on Anderson and Bryan. It’s understandable, but it doesn’t take too much research to find the movie’s factual errors, misstatements, and statistical fallacies. An analogy would be if the guys heaped praise on Loose Change without doing any research into the movie’s claims.

    Here’s the take of a great blog run by truly thoughtful military attorneys whose careers are invested in matters covered in The Invisible War: http://www.caaflog.com/2012/07/11/invisible-war-uninformed-dishonest-or-both/.

    (Disclosure: I’m a Navy JAG who’s spent the past eight years prosecuting, defending, and advising commanders on sex-crime cases of all flavors. Navy commanders takes these issues extremely seriously.)

    • Justin, thanks for posting and thanks for your service.

      I haven’t seen the movie they were discussing, but I was instantly skeptical about some of the stats the guys mentioned. For instance, Bryan made such a huge deal about the movie’s claim 20% of women in the military are victims of sexual assault. There are many of studies out there (including this one http://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/sexual-assault-victims) that show that 17% of ALL women in the US are victims of rape or attempted rape over their lifetime.

      • Uh… don’t thank me. I work in an office.

        To be clear: I’m not criticizing the quality of the film The Invisible War. An Inconvenient Truth is a terrific movie, too, for all its faults. But TIW is straight agitprop, tied directly to the lawsuit brought by the central characters in the movie, and woefully short on facts. I mean, military convening authorities choose the defense counsel? What the hell? Or, the commanders are the ones sexually assaulting? Perhaps in a rare situation — BG Sinclair, for example — but for the most part, military sexual assaults are a product of the same factors involved in college sexual assaults: alcohol, close quarters, and poor supervision. They are not, in any way, a hazard of the job.

    • Justin,

      You beat me to the punch on this one. I agree that TIW tells very tragic stories for those victims portrayed, but in my experience as a fellow Navy JAG, it is not representative of the typical cases. Further the level of misunderstanding of the Military Justice system, and the sexual assault reporting system was incredible.

  12. Anderson, thanks for the heads-up about Amour. I was going to catch it at the “new” (read: re-opened under different ownership) theater on Sunset today. Now I’m just going to catch “West of Memphis” for the second time.

    I’m watching “The Queen of Versailles” now.
    The wife’s bio can be summed up with: “I worked for IBM until I noticed that my manager was marking the time until he could quit his job. I immediately quit that job and started blowing rich dudes.” All-American, baby.
    Old guy: “I got Bush elected. If I hadn’t stuck my big nose into it we would not have had that whole Iraq war. Maybe we would have been better off.”
    Maybe…. Maybe. Asshole.

  15. How about Best Movies with a SINGLE plot line vs. the trend today of at least three. Good example: Looper – stop the kid. You could call Bruce Willis’ run from the mob an initial plot and killing off the kid the main, but I’d argue they became one in the same.

    By the way – Adam’s jealous of Anderson.
