    • Not just berries.. Shari’s Berries!!! Great for birthdays, Mother’s Day, anniversaries, or a simple “thank you”. Shari’s Berries are great for any occasion. Try their classic chocolate dipped strawberries, cookies, handmade caramel and pretzel sampler, or some Mother’s Day cake pops! They even have delicious hand-dipped cherries and caramel pretzel rods! Whatever you order, I’m sure that anyone would love to get something from Shari’s Berries, including your mother on Mother’s Day! Make sure to order soon, while supplies last.

  3. This was a good episode, but Anderson’s spoiler rants against Bryan were all laid to waste by spoiling Pyscho. There has to be a point when it is okay to discuss movies, including their ending. I mean can we not discuss the fact that Vader is Luke’s father when talking about Empire Strikes Back? I realize that people haven’t seen all these old movies but to not fully discuss them is ridiculous. I would say that you should avoid any movie spoilers that came out in the last 12-24 months, since people may have missed them, but after that it’s fair game. Also someone else pointed this out, you two really don’t seem to get the Rotten Tomato score thing. Captain America 2 has a 89% and you Anderson said that people needed to “calm down” about it. But it’s average score is 7.5/10 or 3.5 stars (roughy). The same goes for Bryan’s comment about Queen of Versailles It’s possible with RT to have a movie with a 100% score that has an average review of score of 6/10, a movie everyone recognizes as being “okay, good but not great.” Get it together guys.

    • Totally agree with your whole explanation of when you can spoiler or not spoil a movie. It is a movie podcast so the chance that something is going to slip is inevitable. Couple more homes I wanted to see on the list:

      Master Bates house in The Toy – Huge house with multiple rooms, pool, giant backyard, game room, & you can drive your go cart down the hallway

      The Tenenbaums house in The Royal Tenenbaums – Maybe it was the way it was shot but very unique & roomy.

      The Chocolate Factory in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory – I’m going to count this since he actually lives here & enough said on why that would be awesome.

  4. Anderson, shut the F up & let Bryan finish his flickfessions! It’s his time to give his opinion on the movies he’s seen. When you give your flickfessions you are just as long winded & frequently bring up your flickfessions throughout the show. I would bet your time spent on your flickfessions is longer than Bryan’s most weeks. Regardless love the show & your consistent recommendation.

  5. Would the Swiss Family Robinson home count for this list?

  6. Both ya’lls continued willful misunderstanding of the Rotten Tomatoes scores is getting sad. The score is not a grade, it is simply an average of how many positive reviews it received. If it’s at 50% it means half the reviews were positive, half were negative. It could be that those positive reviews were all incredibly glowing. Bryan saying that Queen of Versaille has a 93% rating and that he “would even go higher” is ridiculous and meaningless.

    If you want to know what the “grade” is you need to look at the score below its Tomato Meter score, the “average rating”. This is on a scale of 1-10.

  7. Justin beat me to the punch. I was going to recommend The Geography of Nowhere to Anderson, but with one caution. I read it when it came out, 10 or 15 years ago, I guess, and sometimes I wish I hadn’t. It’s impossible for me not to notice the things that Kunstler points out now. When I’m driving, it’s especially annoying. I thought I’d recommend the book, but with that warning, though, because it’s an easy read and entertaining. I didn’t think Anderson was wrong, at all, about architecture. He was talking about a different scale than Kunstler focuses on, but the idea is the same. Crap shacks are bad for the human psyche, big or small. Personally, I prefer to be in human scale buildings, but there are others that like oversized ones. I think Anderson was pointing out the difference between the Sheats-Goldstein house and a McMansion that has nonsensical pillars and punched out windows. Anyway, I love this topic and I’m glad it came up on The Film Vault.

  8. FYI If you watch any of the NBA playoffs you’ll probably see James Goldstein the owner of the Sheats-Goldstein house. He’s the guy who you will always see sitting court side at games, wearing leather pants, a funny hat and bearing a strong resemblance to the crypt keeper.

  9. The Chet quote on the cover of the book….Nice!

  10. Anderson was saying he would feel retarded if they did top 5 movie adaptations of books. Maybe a good top 5 would be Top 5 Adaptations, Reboots, or Sequels cuz that would cover more than just books. And since most movies based on other works end up sucking, it’s a good topic to point at the movies that have actually done it right.

  11. Listening to Anderson spout shit about modernist architecture was painful. The reason modernism has been such a massive failure — across all mediums, but especially in architecture — is that it fails on any level beyond a single episode. The Sheats-Goldstein residence is a prime example. Try to picture a neighborhood of those houses. It can’t work. The whole concept crumbles as soon as you realize that more than one person lives in a city, and that cities are also places where people work, play, eat, and — this is always forgotten in modernist urban design — walk.

    Check out Jane Jacobs’s Life and Death of Great American Cities or James Howard Kuntsler’s Geography of Nowhere for brief primers on these ideas.

  12. Swiss Family Robinson


    Posted by Asscrackandbacksack | April 25, 2014, 8:06 PM
  13. kudos to anderson for dropping the architecture love. there is a good movie called “l.a. plays itself” that points out that villains always inhabit modern architecture. lethal weapon 2 (lautner), pierce patchett in l.a. confidential (neutra), tyrell (frank lloyd wright) in blade runner, etc.

    it is odd that so many people see modern design as cold and uninviting when one of the driving forces behind it was opening up living to one’s surroundings and letting in light.

    you could do an entire top five with just lautner houses, garcia house from lethal weapon 2, the elrod house from diamonds are forever, jackie treehorn’s, the chemosphere from body double and others and silvertop in less than zero. lautner was the designer of more Class A fuckpads than probably anyone ever.

    that being said, as much as i love modern architecture and its designers, i cant do anything but laugh at the fountainhead’s giant mountain of self absorbed bullshit.

    great episode.

  14. amityville horror house. how did that not make the cut?

  15. Anderson: “Mad Men is one of the most overrated shows in the history of television.”
    Anderson, I disagree with you completely. Eliminate the phrase “one of” (and make “shows” singular– now I’m ruining my comment by being pedantic).
    Also, this show was probably the first time in history post-1980 when someone mentioned The Dakota (the Rosemary’s Baby apartment complex) without mentioning that John Lennon was shot and killed there, so well done guys (all insincerity intended).

  16. Is it just me or does Anderson strongly resemble the character Brody from the episode of Seinfeld where Jerry started illegally videotaping movies? ? “Aw man I sat in gum! !”

  17. The plot for 13 Sins seems to be a rather familiar one as of late. There are 2 other (rather recent) movies that are of the ‘escalating risk’ variety. One stars Dave Koechner and Pat Healy called “Cheap Thrills” where a rich dude offers a couple of ‘down & out’ more & more money to do increasingly morally/ethically challenging dares. The other is a Netflix special called “Would You Rather…” where a (yet another) wealthy rich guy kidnaps a group of less than fortunate individuals and offers them money to choose and perform tortures upon themselves & others.

  18. LOVE the cover art! And, Brian, KUDOS for suggesting Let the Fire Burn! Great Find!

  19. Just when I thought I couldn’t love Anderson any more than I already do… he plucks another one of the strings close to my heart… architecture! I took this episode more from an architectural rather than a “personality” perspective as well. 2210 Astral Pl., the Deaton Sculptured house, Sheats-Goldstein Residence, etc. My first thought was the Sheats-Goldstein house. Gob damn… nice job Anderson. I’d f’ing blow you if I were even slightly gay. *I too love the whole “case study” house project in So. Cal. I live in Thousand Oaks and there are a couple (case study #28) including a Joseph Eichler tract that I think you would dig dig dig.

  20. Lots of spoilers this week from Anderson. House and Psycho so far and I’m only halfway through the episode.
