  • RC

    Enough of the condensed episodes already in the Junk Mail. It was somewhat amusing the first time but just grew tiresome with each subsequent version.

  • Good to hear Greg back. Frank, get well soon. T
    Many thanks for the show.

  • Gil

    This has made my day.

  • kyri

    Nooo, I like the condensed episodes! But they need to be well made like the last 2 in the previous show.
    Welcome back Greg!
    (Quick everyone add him as a friend on fb!)

  • Napalm

    Fuck. I was gonna mail some shortened episodes. Next week maybe.

  • TJ

    I love the condensed episodes but they’re at their best when the edits are more full of nonsequitur type nonsense. Glad I got to hear Jay’s top 5 movie haircuts again though, that bit cracked me the hell up the first time I heard it.

  • If you guys keep making them, we’ll keep playing them… remixes, musical numbers, shortened episodes, whatever. We appreciate the effort.

  • RC

    TJ makes a good point. They are better when they are nonsequitur. So if you are going to make them, get creative.

    I thought for sure Greg would say he would smash Reed Farrington in the face with Thor’s hammer.

  • Sitrom

    That was a “thanks bitch” for sure.

  • Colin

    Most appropriate outro song ever…

    NOW BACK TO THE GOOD PART!

  • Forget the Flintstones. Public is still clamoring for Grape Ape The Movie!

  • Chris

    You guys definitely need to check out The Parallax View. An amazing film.

  • I also heard “Bitch”.

  • RC

    Sounded like “bitch” to me.

  • This might be your most offensive podcast yet!

    Well Done Gents

  • Jonny Ashley

    Missed Frank this week! Get well soon

  • Sean’s tossing out quite a few zingers in this episode.

  • Napalm

    Sean definitely said “bitch”. Jus sayin.

  • Kasper

    Red Heat is one of my favorite Arnold-movies. Surprised that it’s not regarded as one of his better actioncomedies. It even gets shown often enough on tv here.

  • Kamen Liew

    Jay’s African accent is awesome.

  • Khan Farrington, HMV Manager

    Good episode – thanks.

    Sucked that Frank wasn’t there.

    BEAUTY DAY – NEXT MONTH – YESSSSSSS.

  • Lars Von Tired

    Sean had a good episode this week. Quite a lot of quick shots. He picked up the slack of Frank not being there.

    Frank – Get well. We need you back next week.

    To my fellow Film Junk fans – PLEASE no more creepy visits to Greg at work. I was scarred hearing about this – I can’t imagine how Greg felt.

    Greg – Hang in there. It’s hard out there for a pimp …..

  • Sam

    About movies from the ’40s and ’50s — that was the heyday of film noir and the doomed anti-hero, probably my favorite type of genre flick. Double Indemnity, The Asphalt Jungle, Sunset Boulevard, Night Of the Hunter…just an absolute wealth of great stuff to sink your teeth into. Any of the Mitchum stuff is particularly great.

    I’ll second The Parallax View and also suggest Marathon Man.

  • That reminds me…the film I was trying to think of during the 40’s/50’s question was Night of the Hunter. Definitely contains some pretty modern elements.

  • Jonny Ashley

    I think Yasujiro Ozu was pretty ahead of his time. I would recommend his “Three Family Comedies” pack from the Criterion Collection

  • Greg

    Sean, please stop saying “like”.

    TIA

  • Primal

    Good stuff on Carlito’s Way. One hilarious thing I read about this movie was in one of John Leguizamo’s books about his experiences in the film. About how fucked up on drugs he was on the set and how much of a bitch Penelope Ann Miller was. He got the wardrobe people to cut her dresses an inch smaller than she actually was. You can notice how skinny she was near the end of the film.
