    Les Triplettes de Belleville first hour is simply amazing, but as with all animated movies the last half hour is a bit underwhelming.. A must see before you die though. Better hurry up guys (2012 is near). Oh, wait I forgot Canada is 50 years behind the US..

  • Goon

    glitchy Matt = hilarious

    Paul Directorson! I laughed out loud in public.

  • The more Gamble the better.

  • Mark in Ottawa

    Thanks for the new episode.

    Reed, Have you seen this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd2FlybPjM4. I saw that it was on Rogers OnDemand and it caught my eye. It looks like it could be fun. All about the McCartney “hoax”.

  • Kasper

    Another awesome show, although Matt was a bit too quiet throughout a lot of the show.

  • Alicia

    Listening right now. It’s almost like Max Headroom has joined the podcast.

  • Zoo

    @ Alicia – That’s exactly what I thought too. Was almost expecting Matt to do a commercial pitch for Coke.

    Gonna have to check out Super when I get the chance

  • Napalm

    lmao at Matt’s glitches

  • Mark in Ottawa, no, I haven’t. Looks like fun. I don’t suppose Jay will have a review of it on The Documentary Blog. Could start a trend for found audio films. :-)

  • Henrik

    What a random namecheck. To be clear, I think that Resident Evil movies are garbage.

  • Napalm

    Btw, Sean you forgot about the Twitter question thing this week.

  • What a random namecheck. To be clear, I think that Resident Evil movies are garbage.

    The name check was simply for Sean and Jay. And yes, I’m quite certain you lurv the Resident Evil movies.

    Another awesome show, although Matt was a bit too quiet throughout a lot of the show.

    Yeah, I ended up just listening for much of the TIFF discussions as I was googling the films while they were talking about them since I haven’t been following TIFF too much this year. Then the Junk Mail ended up being pretty Film Junk specific so I didn’t think I should be answering them.

  • Falsk

    Driving home at midnight from my ho-hum job, the brightest shooting star I’ve ever seen streaks across the highway as Jay gives “Let Me In” a 4/4. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

    I think the word you were looking for was “lanyard”. Or “shoelace necklace”. Brilliant. Also, I’m so much more pumped for “Waiting for Superman” now. Good stuff.

    “Brother–brother–brother”

  • Kyri,

    “but as with all animated movies the last half hour is a bit underwhelming..”

    huh?
