  1. I think an obvious one was missed here, Tom Hanks in Philadelphia (though maybe he was mentioned in comedians in dramatic roles.)

    • I’m just catching up on old episodes now and I was screaming this one when I was listening. I can’t believe it didn’t even get an honorable mention. Sometimes they try and be too clever by trying to leave out the obvious ones

  2. This picture is all kinds of hilarous.

  3. I agree that Se7en is a great film and is very rewatchable but I gotta say that I went and saw Gone Girl a second time a couple days after the first and enjoyed it a lot still. I think it’s probably the second or third best film of the year just behind Birdman and Whiplash and I think there’s a lot to “hang your hat on” Anderson!

  4. Two thoughts on this week’s show: First I totally agree with Anderson’s take on Se7en. It’s a great movie that you want to watch again and again, and even dive into the extras. I also agree that seeing Gone Girl once is enough and not something I am in a hurry to see again anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great movie, I simply think it’s just one of those great movies you only see once.

    Finally Whiplash is as great as Anderson and Bryan say. It is an intense, performance driven masterpiece. I’m just happy it finally came to a nearby theater. Go see it!

  5. I must say I’m pretty impressed with Bryan’s stance on the Napster doc. It’s not often that you hear people actually talk about how smaller bands (for the majority) have gotten screwed over when signing to a major label. Most of people that have been crying ‘foul’ about illegal downloading have been label execs and people like Gene Simmons who would endorse toilet cleaner if they paid him enough. “Weird” AL of all people said it best when he said that he now treats his albums like “business cards” in that he doesn’t expect to make much money from them but if you make a good one, people will come out & see you perform (which is where he’ll make most of his money).

  6. Do we all really have to listen to the “why isn’t Whiplash getting a wide release while Dumb & Dumber To is” nonsense from this pair whose primary purpose in life (Carolla podcast/loveline) is to constantly feed LCD humor to the lowest common denominator.

    I guarantee that if promised a 30 million dollar opening week, Anderson would be busy shooting “Babies 2: the potty training years” and Bryan would be off ghost writing a Kershaw autobiography.

  7. Anderson is a hater on Nolan. Interstellar was a really good movie. Nolan is getting heat because is other movies are so great. How can he say Nolan doesn’t know how to love? The movie was a a sci-fi love letter to his daughter. As a father it moved & touched me beyond its flaws.

    • A bit unfair to say he’s a hater on Nolan when The Dark Knight is one of his all time favorite movies. But I think therein lies the problem. It seems that anything Nolan has done since unconsciously he’s (Anderson) comparing it with The Dark Knight.


      Posted by liamscott8172 | January 7, 2015, 7:41 AM
      • It seems like the only Nolan movie Anderson does like is The Dark Knight & all other Nolan works are subpar. I can’t wait to see Anderson’s shorts or film to see if he even reaches anything close to a Nolan portfolio.

  8. Usually 100% disagree with BB, but inspired #1 choice this week from the bald one. Good Job!

  9. Hey Bryan! As a fellow handsome bald man, I’ve got a great idea for an episode. Top 5 baldperfomances.

  10. I took your advice Bryan and downloaded your book illegally online without paying a cent. Adapt or die. Thanks!
