  3. I find it funny that Anderson makes fun of Bryan about only seeing 7 movies yet, he constantly talks about There Will Be Blood and Gangs of New York. I would have liked to hear about Glory or any of the great Civil War movies. Perhaps Space Balls, since it takes place in the 1800s just like TWBB.

  4. Jeremiah Johnson.

  7. Good episode. Would have been better if had been either all westerns (such a huge category) or no westerns but hindsight and all…

    I’ve watched a few TFV recommended films recently so here’s some feedback:

    WIN: Trollhunter
    Only one real character (Hans, the disgruntled hunter) and very light plot, it TOTALLY works as just an exploratory trek into the subject of troll mythology. After the slightly slow start the encounters and explanations are paced just about perfectly. Really enjoyed it.

    LOSE: Get the Gringo
    The prison setting was really interesting. The characters and plot grafted onto that setting are so generic and bland that it’s painful to watch.

    DRAW: Funny Games
    I’m torn on this one. It’s got a completely unsatisfying ending. But it’s intentionally unsatisfying. And I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the film even though it didn’t meet the criteria of being entertaining while watching it. Is being interesting enough?

  8. I strongly believe that if this episode took place 2 years from now Django Unchained would be in there. I know Bryan gave it an also ran mention. But for me one of the best movies I’ve seen for some time.

  9. WTF. on the pic above, is that a manboob, Bryan?!? or did the tumor go down to your left chest?

  10. Restoring my faith in you Bryan – good pick and right on with Moulin Rouge, but I’d have to agree with the fault of not mentioning Master and Commander – such a great movie that would have been touted as greater if not for the forced recognition of the up-and-coming Crowe. Anderson could have also had a western pick with The Proposition, but I believe it had come up before.

  11. No mention of The Assassination of Jesse James in this episode made me very sad. I know you guys were trying to avoid too much Western talk, but it is one of the best films of the era ever made.

    And yes, PLEASE see Master and Commander. Now.

  12. Just watched Compliance. Really enjoyed it. And I agree with Anderson on this one, you feel bad for the girl in the film, but then again, the actress is quite pretty and her body is not bad. Very conflicting thoughts.

  13. Fag Hag + political correctness = Fruit Fly.

  14. Bryan, see “Master and Commander!!!”
    other great 1800’s movies:
    True Grit (both versions)
    Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightley version)
    Sherlock Holmes (Downey and Law…flawed but brilliant)
    Pirates! Band of Misfits
    Magnificent Seven
    Yojimbo (I’m guessing 19th century, see: http://akirakurosawa.info/forums/topic/yojimbo-history-and-fantasy)

  15. There Will Be Blood? 19th century? Jesus, Anderson.


    Posted by Justin | February 16, 2013, 7:51 AM
  16. So, are we to understand (based on the way he stutteringly read the title) that Anderson has never seen The Outlaw Josey Wales? I find that to be shocking. That is a very, very good movie.

  17. Just saw Zero Dark Thrity last night. Best movie I have seen in a long time. If it doesn’t win Best Picture, it is a travesty. That is all.

  18. Bryan says that Amelie did ok for a small independent movie in the US but in reality that $33 mil made it the third highest grossing foreign language film ever (at the time, it ranks 5th now). So yes, compared to a lot of mainstream movies it was pretty small here but for a foreign language film it was phenomenal.

  19. How disappointing to hear that Bryan likes Moulin Rouge. Baz Lehrman should be brought up for war crimes for that and especially for Australia.

  20. Just wanted to leave a note as someone who’s been upset by some of the “gay” stuff on this show.

    Thanks for tuning it down, a lot. I know that most people don’t mean anything by it, but it’s easy for me to get my hackles raised when “faggot” gets casually thrown around. Actually, the second episode of “Louie” has an amazing discussion about the word at the very beginning around a poker table. Worth a look.

    Anyway, for a better movie about the AIDS crisis I’d suggest “And The Band Played On”. Great cast, tons of information.
