  4. I really enjoyed this episode, but I think you overlooked the best courtroom scene ever. Billy Hayes’ response to the Turkish court’s decision to extend his prison sentence in “Midnight Express” is quite possibly one of the most dramatic moments in cinema. (Yes, I realize the final statements made in his speech are extremely xenophobic and Oliver Stone took it upon himself to apologize to the citizens of Turkey some time ago for writing them, but they make the scene all the more jarring.)
    Anyway, thanks for the entertaining podcast!

  7. I’ve seen many films this year, yet I realized the other day that Blue Jasmine is the best film that I’ve seen this year.
    ………..which is very sad.
    Even sadder: the Star Trek movie is probably the second-best film that I’ve seen.
    Is 2013 the weakest year for movies since 2004?

  8. I know this was talked about sometime ago on TFV. I thought I’d share the story which caught my eye mentioning that some of it was leaked.

    “The Holy Grail for film fans emerged, unexpectedly, on YouTube tonight as nearly seven minutes of footage from Jerry Lewis’s unrelased Nazi clown film The Day The Clown Cried found way to the video sharing website.”

  10. I can’t believe that they left out Murder In The First (even in the “also-rans”. That one had some great courtroom scenes with Kevin Bacon, R. Lee Ermey and Christian Slater. As per the sense that the guys don’t like “mainstream” movies, I’m sure they do IF it’s actually any good. It’s not their fault that 70% + of them are genuinely bad.Granted, once in a while they may fall on the wrong side of popular opinion about a certain movie but I think it’s fair to say that Grown Ups 2, After Earth and The Lone Ranger are flat out bad movies.

  11. Bryan – I feel like you need a bit of an intervention. While I too appreciate my childhood favorites, it seems like you’ve described scenes from Transformers (the cartoon) several weeks in a row. Relevance or not, it is like a skipping record. I love to hear your opinions, but please at least space out the references.

    BTW, I listen purely for the banter. I listen because you and Anderson are hilarious and I love your passion for movies. I look forward to every Friday!!! Thanks for another great episode!

  13. Anderson! WTF was up with you in this episode? According to you, the scene with Tom Cruise’s character running down the street in The Firm was because “he forgot to tell her something” (no, he was running after her after she ran away in shock, since she just learned that the mob controls their lives and they can’t get out – it seemed like a pretty action-packed movie to me…), To Kill a Mockingbird was an overrated movie and didn’t mean much (many people argue that it (book and movie) paved way for the entire Civil Rights movement – there was even a great documentary about it), and your attitude towards Philadelphia demonstrates complete ignorance as to how HIV/AIDS sufferers were marginalized 20 years ago – – –

    But Idiocracy – that’s a majestic feat of cinema, eh?

    Feel free to your thing, Chet.

    Did something change today keeping these older episodes from being listened to?

  22. All of Anderson’s picks for today’s progrhum have (so far) not been mentioned on his past Top 5s. I have about a half dozen from the back catalog that still need to be listed. The title of the show is ‘Courtroom Dramas’ not scenes as the controlling one wished. The Bald One has a weakness for single scenes and trailers which probably goes a long way to explain his enchantment with Transformers which doesn’t take a lot of mental might to process.

    One title from today’s show is streaming on Netflix:

    • I see where you are coming from, Scott but I think that’s more Bryan than AC. I think Bryan is almost afraid not to like any mainstream movie from all the criticism he’s recieved for liking the fanboy type movies like Transformers, etc. AC did enjoy “The Heat”..

    • Bryan’s claim that “42” was among the worst movies ever was WAY off the mark. Certainly not great, but it was a well made biopic. Definitely not terrible. Lots of buzz around the movie = terrible in Bryan’s mind.

      Anderson’s most anticipated summer movie? Pacific Rim – because it was really under the radar at that point. Once it starts picking up steam due to advertising and everyone else likes it, Anderson has to shit on it.

    • This is something you just have to get over if you are going to enjoy this podcast. Anderson has admitted that he is a movie snob (yet he still liked Limitless; go figure) and I would also get really irritated with the outright snootiness. Sometimes it does seem like he only ever talks about documentaries.And he will hate on some great movies for very petty reasons. The pretentiousness can get annoying, don’t get me wrong. But after a while, you realize that is part of his “charm” and you have to realize that the film snob thing is kind of exaggerated for effect. Plus Brian does bring things (a little too far sometimes) back down to earth. Once you accept the snobbery, it gets better. The ironic thing is that some of the film snob will rub off on you! I hate watching documentaries, but somehow after becoming a Film Vault listener, I have actually seen like 5 of them so far this year ( a lot for me!). So just stick with it, because them being snobs is your gain. I have got some really amazing film recommendations for movies I never would have heard of or checked out otherwise.

      • I agree with you here, it seems like when there is a ton of love for a mainstream movie they have to pick it apart or flat out hate on it. I remember last summer when they reviewed Dark Knight Rises… Granted, it may be the worst of the 3 batmans, but was still a great movie and they were so overly critical of the movie and the tone they used was as if their dog died. It really turned me off of the podcast for a couple weeks.
