  1. Best artwork ever. “Try to avoid me raping my dog.” Sounds like a new theme.

  2. Anderson’s egregious error of the week:

    Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender are not the 2 whitest actors. The two whitest actors are Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Ron Howard. Apparently, this is a podcast about movies, for shame!

  5. One of the funniest moments i’ve heard in Film Vault history was during this past “Vaulties” episode where Anderson lets out this weird sound when Logan is about to reveal the ending to “Searching For Sugarman”. (51:30) Instant classic! Please tell me somebody else found this to be hilarious!

  6. The only two that I feel were missed…

    Min-Sik Choi (Oldboy, I Saw The Devil). Yes, he’s Korean, and he may not make things that will garner an Oscar over here, but the dude is incredible.

    Chow Yun Fat (Hard Boiled, The Killer). Again, Chinese, but such a great screen presence, especially in his late 80’s/early 90’s work.

  10. Cmon Bryan. Your review for “42” was beyond terrible and did not address one substantive part about the movie. Yes, we all know that the audience is going to suck for any theater that you go to see a movie like “42.” Who gives a shit that it says “Based on a true story?” I agree with Anderson when he says that there may be a psychological reason behind it, in that people will say “Oh right, this actually happened” and just be reminded of it. Finally, “42” had some of the most realistic baseball scenes I have ever seen, and they were really well filmed. Also, it did not “dumb down” anything for the audience.

    How could this be one of the worst films you have ever seen? It seems like you saw it on a bad day and had a shitty audience. That has nothing to do with the film itself, and you lost a little credibility there buddy.

    • 42 was garbage. It’s probably a good movie for anyone who doesn’t know anything about the shit that Jackie Robinson went through, but for anyone who knows anything about Jackie Robinson, this movie was all fluff and gloss.

      Most realistic baseball scenes you’ve ever seen? Where’s your credibility?

      • For me its not about if Bryan liked 42 or not, or even if its a good picture. Everyone is entitled to think what they want about a movie, but Bryan did not back why it was so bad at all. His reasoning were ridiculous. It just makes it seem like the film made a lot of money, getting solid reviews and people seem to enjoy it so Bryan has to shit on it.

      • Honestly, this was the first baseball movie I have ever seen that shows how fast the ball actually goes. I have faced many 90+ mph pitchers, and you barely have time to react. It was portrayed correctly if you ask me, including the infielding scenes. Usually baseball movies don’t get up close and personal with the speed of the ball and the fielding aspects of the game.

  15. There should be an Oscar category for actors who make you forget where they’re from: Karl Urban, Guy Pearce, Christian Bale, Hugo Weaving…and of course the ones who have Oscars like Daniel Day-Lewis, Russell Crowe, Heath Ledger. (Mostly Ozzies, huh? What’s going on???)
    BTW, Bryan, there is a Japanese name, “Hiro,” with an H, but the guy in the movie is Jiro, hard J, hard R, kinda like G-doe.

  16. Great list guy’s. However, while I often agree with Bryan’ s reviews, he officially lost all credibility for me on this one. He is now officially the biggest hipster I have ever heard, beating the previous champion, Anderson. He used so much blatant hyperbole with his review of 42, I can no longer believe his reviews. Nobody actually likes Gummo, not even Anderson. People only say they like it to sound “hip” or “edgy” (hence, hipsters). And to compare it this way to 42 is retarded. Excuse me, delayed. I have not seen 42 yet, but every review I have heard from critics and friends say it is fantastic, and even one of the best films of the year. Even Doug Benson really enjoyed it. So congratulations Bryan, you’re now the biggest hipster I have heard.

    • Chadwick Boseman is a complete and utter cockface as a human being, which is more than enough reason for me to hate it. I will not buy a ticket for it.
      Yeah, you guys are right when you state that disliking the actor’s voice and “based on a true story” are flimsy reasons to refer to a film as “one of the top five worst I’ve ever seen” or whatever he said.
      But based on the things that many people are saying, it’s a glossy Disney version of those events (well.. with “nigger.”)

  17. Kang Ho Song. sympathy for mr. vengeance, thirst and the howling.
    but most importantly the weird from the good the bad and the weird. he fucking chews it up in that movie.

    separately, there is a really good movie to be made about jackie robinson. incredibly interesting guy and life. 42 looks like exactly the movie you would expect about him and thus not at all interesting. better had it been werner herzog or david lynch or someone interested in painting with a finer brush than racists vs the black guy and the white guy who helps him. i wonder if they ever considered casting sandra bullock as branch rickey.
    thinking about it, it is a shame it couldn’t have been steve albini’s directorial debut.

  23. I heard Brian’s review of 42 on ACS, and this was sort of a verbatim copy. I am sure he is correct about how the movie sucks, but the primary issues he came up with don’t seem that egregious. I seriously doubt many people will care that his voice is different, nor will they be so grossly offended by the words “Based on a true story.” Weren’t there other, more notable problems with the movie to discuss?

    • I agree, I am on the fence about seeing this movie and the reasons he gave didn’t sway me agaisnt seeing it or not. If these are the only reasons you hated the movie then i’m sure ill enjoy it just fine, but as you said for one of the worst films you’ve seen theres got to be more to hate

      • “42” is fine. It’s certainly not a groundbreaking movie by any means. The baseball scenes were probably the best of any movie ever made. It’s beautifully shot and the CGI for some of the stadium scenes is great.

        And Bryan totally didn’t get the Ray Chapman character’s role. Yes, he basically shouted epithets at Jackie. And he didn’t stop. He kept it up until the audience was beyond uncomfortable. The audience felt real sympathy for Jackie.

        And reviewing the AUDIENCE? What’s that about Bryan? You really are trying to out-hipster Anderson.
