    so basically Jay’s prefered story for Wolverine 2 would be a First Blood remake with Wolverine in place of Rambo.

    I like it

  • rjdelight

    How did you guys not talk about the OTHER X-Men: First Class news? That being, the frickin movie is going to be set in the 60s!! Jay has always wanted a comic book flick period piece and now we’re getting one and you guys don’t even mention it. :(

  • I just saw that this morning actually. But that’s pretty cool.

  • REDBELT is fantastic, a very underrated gem. For some reason, the internet ate my review of the film, but suffice it to say, I’m a big fan.

  • Jay may get a kick out of this “Tiffany” stalk-doc, I THINK WE ARE ALONE NOW, which also comes out on DVD.

  • Hey Kurt, I’ve actually seen it. Not very well made (and very sensational) but an interesting watch either way.

  • Werner

    Great episode. And Frank is a very valuable add-on.

  • Xidor

    As far as band decorations go in rooms of movies, I like the Spinal Tap baseball cap in Fred Savage’s room in the Princess Bride. Apparently Mark Knopfler, agreed to write and perform the music for the movie, if Reiner would place somewhere in the movie a cap he had worn in the movie “Spinal Tap”.

    I doubt though Savage’s character would appreciate Spinal Tap.

  • Fatbologna

    I was happy to hear Jay’s summary of Africa Addio! Saw that movie a few years back when I picked up the Mondo Cane collection and it stuck with me for a good while. The box set is definitely worth tracking down as all the films included are pretty amazing time capsules.

  • Fatbologna

    Wait… I was playing catch up today and just realized that talk was three episodes back!! WHOOPSIE DAISY!

    Hey guys, love the show. If you’re struggling with audiobook suggestions, here’s one so you can stave off getting dumped by Audible for at least one more week:

    The Kid Stays In The Picture — read by the man himself, Robert Evans. Industry titan, legendary raconteur, and one-time murder suspect chronicles the downfall of the Hollywood studio system (placing himself at the center of every crucial moment), beds countless starlets and settles ancient scores. He’s gravel-voiced, vindictive, and ridiculously arrogant. The anti-Reed Farrington, if you will. As you listen, try to imagine the two of them stuck in the same room. Only one would come out alive, and it would be Evans doing the killing. But who would he kill? Reed? Or himself? Hmmm…..

  • swarez

    Saw Chasing Ghosts tonight. Great doc and I don’t understand why it’s not more out there. Although they touched briefly on it I would have liked to have seen them talk about modern gaming and how now days there are pros that make tons of cash competing.

  • Kurt, I actually bought a copy of Redbelt after you had praised this Mamet film earlier. It started out seeming like it would be a martial-arts film with an interesting storyline. But to me, the film faltered in the end. I especially disliked Dan Inosanto’s role as the master in the film. I didn’t like that he got up and clapped.

  • Falsk

    Frank makes me happy that I’m not the only one who has trouble with “jumpy” movies. Awesome. :D

  • Rolf

    Frank laughing about his won story is almost as hilarious as Gregs laughs. Bring him back! If they both break out laughing it would be super awesome!!!

    Also very fine singing by Jay again. Love it!

  • Liney

    As we all know, filmjunk is all about great chemistry…and I’m always happy when I hear that Frank is on an episode…he slots right in effortlessly, and makes me laugh my arse off!

  • David

    Recently on one of my random spacewalks through the web, I stumbled upon this site – and yeah, I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing all of your content. Wish I would’ve found you guys sooner. You guys are much better than the /filmcast.

  • Bloviator

    All of Google’s stuff is not free. Most is. Google offers a paid service for Gmail to up the cap on storage.

  • TDR

    jay was pretty easy on his brief recap of Pirahna II: The spawning.that film Isnt worth checking out..
