  1. I was kinda hoping with Anderson’s taste he would have put onatleast his ample also rants Akria… Oh and the people walking through the theatre during the movie are doing sound and picture quality checks. But walking in front if the screen is douchebaggery.

  2. Top five good movies Bryan didn’t like – for instance Five Broken Cameras.

  3. Fun episode. On “why don’t they make high-concept adventure-comedies like Ghostbusters anymore?” I think they do, but rarely. MIB. And more recently the Pirates franchise. It seems to take a high-profile star at the center to support a big-budget comedy and such stars are not common and aren’t often suited to that kind of story/role.

  5. I’m with your wife Anderson – nay on the Movie 43 poster. Also, how about top five best movies adapted from a short story (i.e. Shawshank Redemption). Like “mustard” – how about Christine?

  6. Bryan- I’m a little behind on the podcasts and just wanted to thank you for saying “mustard” a couple of week’s back. I also thought Anderson’s joke was hilarious. You guys rule! You should do “Top 5 most awkward scenes”

    excellent. 😀

  7. Anderson, I know you probably won’t read this, but I really liked that you didn’t berate Bryan for forgetting a movie you mentioned previously, that was nice. I also agree that this topic was too vast. It was like being asked what your favorite movie is, too vast. However, it bothered me that you were so tough on The Last Stand, when you didn’t even bother to watch the whole thing. I mean, the movie is called The Last Stand, and you didn’t even stick around for “the last stand”. The movie is not some amazing piece of art, it is what it is, a cheesy Arnold action flick. But the best part is the second half where Johnny Knoxville DOES play a big part, and is hilarious. Also, the grandma scene was great. The part with Forest Whitaker was lame, but no more lame than Paul Gleason and the FBI sticking it to Al Powell in Die Hard, or the idiot security guy’s in Die Hard 2 (Dennis Franz). Those characters are in plenty of movies and they are always lame, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the whole movie is lame.The Last Stand had a lot of holes, but overall it was an okay movie. You should give it another chance.

    Just watched Searching For Sugar Man on you guy’s recommendation and it was fantastic. Also bought the soundtrack. And also just watched Hitchcock and was also really good.

  8. Gremlins would be a GREAT family film, right up until Phoebe Cates says “and that’s how I found out there’s no Santa Claus.”

  9. I noticed Anderson only brings up Funny Games and Cache when talking about Haneke. I wonder if he’s seen The Piano Teacher, The Seventh Continent, or Benny’s Video. In my opinion by far the best Haneke films.

  10. You guys have been circling around a topic that I think would make a great top 5. Top 5 Taboo films, I’d prefer to leave it vague, so that Bryan can actually come up with a list. Anderson, your comments in this episode would be so goddamn brilliant. Please for the love of god, do it!

  12. I love that Anderson hated this weeks list. I suggested it (no shout out? booo) and getting Anderson riled up is awesome. Don’t listen to the haters Bryan, you’re great. I feel like you represent the film masses. Great show guys, you too Logan.

  13. Bryan Ruins Radio.
