  • What song is playing at the start of this podcast? Almost sounds like Head Automatica combined with the Mars Volta…weird…and cool. I am only 7 minutes in but I just had to know haha

    I spent a great deal of time shoveling this week as well :(


  • this is going to jumpstart my vacations on the good foot! thanks!

  • Andreas

    Just wanted to tell you filmjunks that I´m looking forward to your podcast each week. I´m a passive listner…or whatever you would call a person like myself who just dl the podcast and really don´t bother “interacting” ;)

    Keep up the good work and also keep shoveling that snow…

    Merry Christmas

    /Andreas from chilly cold Sweden.

  • Seantonio: The song is We Ragazzi – Forever Surrender 2 U.

    Julien and Andreas: Thanks! Much appreciated.

  • Big Trouble In Little Vagina thats classic. I’d like more of these Top 5’s in the future.

    That HMV in St. Catharines sounds like a magical little piece of the world though. I will visit this mythical center of hilarity at some point in my life.

  • Reed Rothchild!!

  • Primal

    About that Bob Marley scene, I think that scene was meant to be funny. It was like, well here we go, this is a perfect part where this grammy award winning artist is going to show off his vocal skills, but he doesn’t. He sang it like a guy who can’t sing, hehe. But it’s definitely weird that a women with a hard spanish accent from Maryland to not know Bob. I’m guessing the scene was a segueway to the meaning of the title of the movie.

    I love the improv top 5’s Jay. I hope you guys get to see Sweeney Todd. I can’t believe Burton has a limited release movie!

    Btw, are you internally okay now Greg? Bad Mcgriddles and pootytang giving Jay anal cancer scares. Is Canadian food really that bad? What the hell is pootytang made of anyway?Hopefully it’s a food because here in the states its slang for a women’s vagina.

  • Haha contrary to popular belief, the delicacy we were talking about is not actually called “pootytang”. It is called “poutine”, which is a French-Canadian word I believe. It consists of french fries covered in gravy and cheese curdles. Delicious!

  • Primal

    Ah yeah, mis-heard the word. It sounds good though, I’ll make sure to try that if I ever visit Canada.

  • Bad pootytang can give you worse things than colon cancer.

  • hahaha pootytang
    it is indeed Poutine. The secret of a good poutine is in the gravy.

    I listened to the podcast earlier on and Jay killed it with his impromptuous Top 5s…you have to make it an habit man!

    So what’s on the review menu for the next podcast? I hope Walk Hard or Sweeney Todd make the final cut

  • TheSnowLeopard

    “It consists of french fries covered in gravy and cheese curdles.”


    “I’d like more of these Top 5’s in the future.”

    Please, no. Is this really the path Filmjunk is taking: more juvenile vulgarity and lame scatological jokes. Good grief.

    My Top 5 taglines (in no particular order):
    1. 2001:A Space Odyssey
    “The Ultimate Trip”
    2. Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
    “We Are Not Alone”
    3. Ordinary People
    “Everything is in its proper place… Except the past”
    4. A.I. Artificial Intelligence
    “David is 11 years old. He weighs 60 pounds. He is 4 feet, 6 inches tall. He has brown hair. His love is real. But he is not.”
    5. The China Syndrome
    “Today, only a handful of people know what it means… Soon you will know.”
    This is from IMDb. From memory, the TV tagline is a better version of this: “Those who know the meaning of the China Syndrome are scared. Soon you will know”. At least that’s what I heard in Australia. That tagline really intrigued me when I was a kid.

  • joe

    Oops.. yeah, I meant Drive-in not Drive-through. Haha.

  • What do you expect TheSnowLeopard? These guys aren’t professional, they’re just fun friends. Only one of them has some sort of experience with film or filmschool, and with humor the key thing is that it can go for as long as it is funny. And Jays top 5s this week were gold.

  • Jay’s humor is dry, witty, saracastic and quick. Keep it up.

  • Thanks guys.

    TheSnowLeopard: Don’t get your leopard print snow pants in a bunch! The dirty top fives aren’t a sign of things to come but rather the result of being bored out of my skull by what Sean and Greg had to say during the show.


  • Nemesis

    Good Show

    C’mon now Jay, The Man with the Screaming Brain is not that bad in a B-Movie sense, please watch the whole movie without judgement, Ted Raimi as Pavel is hilarious so is Stacey Keach as the demented doctor. The whole bulgaria/america culture clashes are a lot of fun..

  • Goon

    Norris: in the right, ungrateful or both?

  • Both.

  • In the right, but without a sense of humor. Hey, if I could make money off of suing somebody writing some book about me, I would too.

    Chuck Norris is a huge asshole. Those TV commercials he has been doing for religion and politicians prove it. Too bad, the facts are pretty funny.

  • Reed Farrington

    I find this statement hilarious:

    “Norris, who rose to fame in the 1970s and 1980s as the star of such films as “The Delta Force” and “Missing in Action,” says the book’s title would mislead readers into thinking the facts were true.”

    Unfortunately, I do believe everything I read.

    I’m not a lawyer, but I thought it was legal to parody someone. So I would say Norris is not in the right, and ungrateful for the further publicity this book would garner him. But I suspect the lawsuit is a public relations ploy by Norris’ reps.

    So I would say neither. (And not because I disagree with everything Jay says.)

  • Drew

    Great Show, great versus.

  • Adam

    agree with Sean, I am Legend 4.5/5, War of the Worlds 5/5.

  • Adam, you are a wise man.

  • Adam

    the dog vs dog scene made me teary eyed. cgi didnt drop the intensity of the scene for me any.

  • Poutine, Film Junk’s number one food, is in the news again:
