Hopefully we can stay friends after Anderson and Bryan run down the TOP 5 BREAKUP SCENES.  They’ll prove just how cathartic these scenes are with clips to back them up.

  1. One new title streaming on Netflix based on Anderson’s Top 5s. From the ‘Opening Title Sequences’ episode Enter the Void (2009) was added to the playlist bringing the total number of streaming films to 56 out of 299 Top 5 movies.

    Other episodes cataloged without any additions to the Netflix streaming list are:

    2012-03-16 – Fight Scenes

    2012-03-02 – Movies With The Character’s Name In The Title (Tyler replaces Logan as producer! The brilliance of his drops, although restrained by Bryan, is spot on. Also includes an explanation of how Bryan was fired from Loveline and has Bryan posing a question showing a bit of a pedophilia streak.)

    2012-02-17 – Oscar Locks (it was great hearing Anderson reveal what Bryan said to him before the show started. It concerned a past experience with Miss Movies. Logan backed up Anderson and Bryan couldn’t help himself and turned a shade of pink! Miss Moves comes on later to rebut the tale.)

  2. I’m a bit amused by the OUTRAGE that Anderson had when Bryan DARED TO MENTION “Gone with the Wind.”
    Many people have already written that this show rarely mentions movies that were created before 1980, let alone 1970. God might have decided that black people were alright sometime around the late ’70s, but that period didn’t also begin The Golden Age of Cinema or something.

    It also shows on the Amazon movie read-through. You guys *never* mention a pre-1970 movie that I purchase.
    I like “Looper” and “No Country for Old Men,” and I LOVE “There Will Be Blood,” but for fuck’s sake– get some variety in the lists. I *know* that people are buying old, vintage films, but you guys refuse to mention them.

  6. I saw Fantaxtic Mr. Fox on your rec Bryan. Didn’t you find George Clooney’s voice too distracting? He is too famous to be a fox.
    I liked how the animated it though, very different and cool.

  7. More clips, less Logan

  8. I was looking up the movie ‘Serenity’ (2005) on TFV site which I watched last night and gave 4 out of 5 stars. This was after watching the series it was based on ‘Firefly’. All 20 episodes of the TV series are currently streaming on Netflix. Logan lists that ‘Serenity’ was mentioned on the ‘Movies That Need Sequels’ episode from 7-Oct-2011. Does anyone know in what context it was talked about. I haven’t cataloged this one yet. Thanks!

  9. …and I like it even more when one of them fucks up the clip and the other gets mad…love these guys!

  10. I like the clips.

  11. World War Z was pretty sweet. I didn’t notice that it was PG 13, plenty of sweet zombie killing action. The wall climbing scene in Jerusalem was really cool.

  12. I also thoroughly enjoy That’s My Boy. The movie is very aware of itself and Sandler dives head first into this caricature of New England douchebag burnout. In regards to the wrestling scene you were commenting on, Anderson, it goes a little something like this:
    Chad (the brother): [begins punching his own dick] You gotta puff that fucker up! You gotta puff that fucker UP!
    Todd (Andy Sanberg): No… you don’t have to… puff… that fucker up.
    Guilty pleasure, but actually really funny.

  14. Bry Bry… your insane rant on Man of Steel was useless. No one will remember it in a year? Except the 80% of the fans that like it? and the sequal thats happening? Why not tell us a real criticism? Like there’s too much shaky cam, or too much Russell Crowe, or not enough warmth.

    Its at least as good as Transformers and how many times does that get brought up.

    • Im with you on this.Its a ridiculous statement for a movie that already has a massive following based off the fact it is about one of the more iconic characters. Stop assuming things for the audience like that with out anything to back it up. It seems more and more on this show when there is a huge release that a lot of people are excited about you have to go agaisnt the gain just to be different. It is one thing if you truley didn’t like the film, but then you should not have too much trouble actually giving legit critism, not vague statements like “no one will remember this film a year from now” or Michael Shannon didnt have a Kneel before Zod moment.


      Posted by michael | June 24, 2013, 5:46 AM
      • zomg i know. No “kneel before zod” moment. Oh? No super cheesy, insane shout of the villain screaming and then flying off? Did he want Superman to rip the S off his chest and throw it at Zod? Maybe he wanted Superman to kiss Lois and have her magically forget everything? Wait! I know! Superman should fly around the world, go back in time, and make everything all better!

  15. hey bald one, just catching up on some TFV’s and heard you complaining about the ending to I am Legend. There is an alternate ending on the special edition that is FAR superior to the theatrical version, you should check it out. Im sure it would be fairly easy to find on youtube etc.

  16. I agree. I’m going on a hunger strike until clips are officially banned from the show.

  17. Did Anderson completely rip off his bit about the cursing in World War Z from Bill Burr’s podcast?


    Posted by Sam | June 21, 2013, 11:00 AM
    • Fuck yeah he did, I’m glad I’m not the only one that caught that. The least he could do is give Burr credit. Everyone knows Anderson listen’s to Burr’s podcast. I hope his movie script isn’t filled with this type of thievery.

      • Dis-like. Just because you hear something somewhere doesn’t mean you always have to say “hey I heard over on such and such show that….” It could easily be something that Anderson has already thought about numerous times what with the proliferation of 200 million dollar PG-13 blockbusters.


        Posted by Pat Lane (@Planeis) | June 22, 2013, 7:09 AM
      • Are you serious with this comment? “Just because you hear something somewhere doesn’t mean you always have to say “hey I heard over on such and such show that….”

        Actually you do. If you hear it somewhere else and you don’t give credit it’s called plagiarism. Its a major problem with newspapers, comedians, the education system, blogs, and even twitter these days. It’s not at all unreasonable that an opinion based movie podcast would be held to the same standards in this area. Especially when Anderson’s phrasing and examples were so similar to Bill’s – from my memory it was almost word for word.

        With that said I fully expect Anderson to say he hadn’t listened to that episode of Bill’s podcast yet. As mentioned it isn’t a unique compliant and its at least plausible they arrived at it independently of each other.

  18. Just heard the Good Will Hunting clip and nearly fell out of my chair when Anderson started questioning playing the clip for people who are working (I am) on a Friday (it is) and just want to hear about movies (I do). Thanks Anderson, that was a tough one to listen to.

    But in Bryan’s defense, the fact that it’s tough to listen to is a testament to just how real that scene is — gave me chills and made me want to revisit that movie.

    Here’s hoping you guys keep the clips — they were a big part of my first Film Vault (Top 5 Monologues), which led to me immediately becoming a weekly listener. Thanks guys.

  19. The current episode has been added to the IMDb playlist showing which films are streaming based on Anderson’s Top 5s. I’ve changed the format slightly and removed the flickfessions keeping the list a pure top 5.

    Three films are currently streaming based on this episode. The total # of films streaming on Netflix is 55 out of a possible 284 Top 5 titles. This is from a total of 53 episodes:

    — Chasing Amy (1997)
    — Wet Hot American Summer (2001)
    — Sleeping with the Enemy (1991)

    For each of the titles you can click through to Netflix Streaming to view the film’s details at the link below.

    IMDb playlist: http://www.imdb.com/list/xuupjtme31U/

    Funniest moment for me was when Anderson stepped on the key line from Bryan’s ‘Good Will Hunting’ clip. Hearing Bryan getting genuinely annoyed makes for good times! It also works when BB is self deprecating. This always comes off as funny and believable.

  20. The suggestion to ‘ban clips’ is an excellent idea! But only if they are longer than certain set length. I’d hate to think that the genius that was the simulated computer voicing of ‘Vincent Cassel’ could never be. This was *the* funniest under one second moment on any TFV to date.
