  2. I like these episodes, but I will admit – I’d have been pissed if I had not seen Her before listening. Bryan, you HAVE to stop spoiling movies. As it is, if you start talking about a movie I haven’t seen yet, I mute it because of my fear of you spoiling it.

  3. Hey guys, I’m sorry to promote stuff on here but I cut a trailer for a movie I’m making with my friends and would love it if some people could give me some honest feedback on it. If you do, thanks in advance.

  4. How was Blackfish not brought up at all in this episode? I thought Anderson loved that movie.

  5. I just saw “The Grand Budapest Hotel;” I’m starting to think that I can’t trust the critics anymore.
    Pile of crap. I’m sure that these two lunatics would love it because I hate it.
    They might even declare that it’s the best film in the history of cinema, which would actually be ten thousand times more credible than saying that “In A World” was the best film of 2013.

  6. God, more about “A Hijacking.” I wish Anderson would mention once that the film is really slow and not much happens. I’m sure it’s a realistic and non-Hollywood depiction of what it’s like to negotiate a hostage release over a phone line, but that doesn’t make for a particularly gripping or cinematic narrative. If “Captain Phillips” did not exist, I wonder whether and how often Anderson would even mention “A Hijacking.”

    • *shrugs*

      I LOVED “A Hijacking”. I was bored to tears by “Captain Phillips”. The negotiator’s plight in “A Hijacking” was a lot more emotional for me because there was so much at stake. In “Captain Phillips” I spent half the movie just waiting for the inevitable demise of the pirates.

  7. I usually don’t comment but Jesus Christ Bryan I think you just spoiled the end of Her for me. What the fuck? Love your show but how did you making that “how many people are you having this conversation with” comment help your ability to talk about whether you liked the movie at all? Can’t you say you liked it, or liked the end, without revealing a major plot point?

    I’ll still watch Her but based on your comment I have a pretty good idea of what happens.

    • Gotta echo this; I too was quite angry when Bryan slipped that little tidbit in about HER and I almost blurted out some profanity why listening at work on ear buds. Damn it Bryan, can’t you just hold your tongue for this kind of stuff. This sounds like a pretty pivotal point in the ending of that movie I haven’t yet had the pleasure of experiencing, and now I’m going to go into it without fresh eyes on the direction of the film.

  8. Bryan messed up the title of Twenty Feet from Stardom about 5 times and never once blamed his tumor!

  9. I don’t get all the …In A World hype from Anderson & Bryan. It was good but not great & nothing special. I thought Short Term 12 & Her were better movies. Prisoners & The Place Beyond the Pines were good calls as well as Mud. Dallas Buyers Club was also another of my favorites from this year & honorable mention of The Way Way Back. The Heat was terrible, but really Logan… Pacific Rim???

    • I was yelling in my car, ‘In a World? In a World? IN A FUCKING WORLD!?!?!?!?!?” Made the wife watch it with me, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I’m sorry I dozed off there remembering this pile of crap. I understand liking a movie like this because it struck you a certain way…but the VAULTIES?!?! It was #1 for Bryan. Wow. Wow. Wow. It’s a turd. Do yourselves a favor and don’t watch this if you haven’t. It only leads to complete disappointment. And your spouse will never will never listen to you again when you say, “the movie podcast I listen to highly recommends this.”

      I agree, or can see, all of your other pics. This one sucks balls. Period.

    • In a World?!?! I had to come back and post again, “In a World??!?!” Fuck me running. I need to find another movie podcast. This pick alone has me considering a breakup with my favorite podcast!

      OK, I think I feel better. I still love you TFV.

  10. on unending love of movie once said was proud
    the warm embrace of the familiar you so desperately clutch
    blatant bias bleeds as wanton lies project so loud
    methinks, the bald one doth protest too much

  11. Fun episode – covered alot of ground. Always like to hear the boys go back over what they hoped certain films would be compared to what they actually were. I’d have never discovered things like Holy Motors or Sallinger without A&B . . keep up the good work!

  12. Love to hear you guys talk about Computer Chess. Streaming on Netflix.

  13. That. Was. Painful…
    until “The Listener Top 5” thing, then the SHOW WAS REDEEMED.
    No… I mean… that whole show other than the listeners’ picks (only “American Hustle” made me cringe) was fucking scary/painful.
    Also, Bryan, I’m the “Lake Bell fuck fantasy guy.” There are at least two other people who have tried to come up with a psychological theory about why you guys think that “In a World” is the best piece of art in the history of mankind– and I don’t blame them, actually. There is something bizarre in your brain chemistry or psychological makeup there.
