  • Napalm

    The birth of the baby calls for new mega Cantankerous and a video podcast!

  • matt

    I am glad babygate has its own theme music. Should become a regular segment.

  • dan day

    Jay, when you read the letters did you intend to sound like the computer which quizzed Spock in THE VOYAGE HOME?

    Because you did and it was hilarious.

    And I second the call for a cantankerous. In the meantime I will make do with Reed’s no doubt amusing comments on MI:4.

  • I’m hoping for Babygate to morph into a Filmjunk Babies animated special–with Reed as the sitter.

  • Kasper

    I love both Demolition Man and Over The Top, which has one of the best soundtracks ever.

  • Henrik

    It would only be fitting if K.O. Dwyer’s first words were uttered on a podcast!

    Another cantankerous? COULD IT HAPPEN?? REEEEEEEEEED, everybody loves and wants you. Seriously.

  • RC

    How the hell can Frank not like Animal House? That is very surprising. I would have pegged him for a huge fan of that movie. The movie is a true comedy classic.

    Yet he likes Nothing But Trouble. Go figure!

  • milandob

    another amazing episode! first 5 minutes were epic! was kinda hoping to hear jay’s retail story… maybe next week… btw frank you should definetly watch demolition man, good movie, could be great if it would have a proper director.

  • bard

    I’m totally on board with Frank regarding Animal House. I think it’s just a “classic” because of the time it came out. I’m not a fan of Belushi either. The comedy classics from that era are The Jerk, and of course the best comedy every made: Young Frankenstein.

  • RC

    Animal House = timeless classic

  • @ RC

    I’m still getting over that he hasn’t seen Demolition Man. Get on that Franklin.

  • Spongebob Scaredpants

    Babygate. Ball Junk. New bumper music. It’s getting too crazy without Sean there.

    What happened to the Jackal this episode?

  • Kasper

    #12 Yeah, I was hoping for The Jackal to make a return, playing it loose, outta control’n’crrrrrazy.

  • Aaron

    Wow, Frank is dropping some bombshells and creating some controversy. Hopefully Sean can restore the peace next week.

  • Jay, I adore the Over The Top soundtrack as much as you do, but man, did you butcher Menahem Golan’s name on-air! I’m not sure if it was d?ne deliberately for a laugh (I admit it was funny), and if so just ignore, but since Mr. Golan is my compatriot, I feel a kind of duty to help correct the matter. So it’s basically just those syllables: Me-nah-hem. The “h” in Hebrew is originally pronounced gutturally (a sound that does not exist in English), so it’s pronounced like an “h”, as in Hanna. It’s either that or something like “Menachem”…

    I know. It’s crazy how he succeeded in Hollywood with that name…

  • Mark In Ottawa

    Thanks for the e-mail read.

    The Fassbender question was in general. So, Inglorious Basterds would count.

    Greg – You’re right. I have no idea what I’m talking about. I never do. Any thoughts on the new coach of your Dolphins ? Cowher ? Fisher ? Gruden ?

    I can’t wait for the King’s return in MI:4. Reed you are missed.

    Will the Ball Junk Podcast focus on Baseketball or all sports ?

    Good episode guys.

  • Mason

    If you want a head-scratcher of a John Belushi role try “Continental Divide”, one of his final projects. The failure of this fish-out-of-water romantic comedy might be the thing that pushed him over the edge. (on Netflix-USA Instant Watch).

  • Has anyone ever seen the SNL skit where Sylvester Stallone, as himself, is trying to help Norm McDonald out of a wrecked car? The whole time, Stallone is trying to get him out the car, and a half-dead Norm just keeps bagging on his movies. I remember there being a bit where he talks about how, yeah, Kramer vs. Kramer was a great divorce drama, bu there just wasn’t enough arm wrestling for his liking.

    I swear this thing exists, but I can’t find it on YouTube…

  • Kasper

    #18 Hahaha, that sounds awesome. A shame you can’t find the clip anywhere.

  • Ozymandias

    I’m with you Frank. I just don’t get Animal House. The people who like it most, in my experience, are frat boys from college and my girlfriend’s dad. Also Demolition Man is awesome. Rat-burgers, virtual sex with Sandra Bullock, and … shells. This movie has it all.

  • Ben

    Whoever is the douchebag that’s sending the same questions, word for word, to both Film Junk and The /Filmcast – stop it.

  • Spongebob Scaredpants

    Ben, Agreed. Though that wouldn’t be a bad trick for Reed to try to pull. Send the same questions to a bunch of film podcasts. Hmmm…

  • Matt Gamble

    Reed just needs to be the Dwyer’s live-in nanny.

  • patrik

    I don’t agree with Franklins criticism of Kung Fu Panda 2 at all.. In what way did they reboot the character?

  • KJ

    Let us hope that years from now none of us hear the words “Kneel before KOD”.

  • Mrespony

    Impeccable intro/outro music choices on this episode.

  • Anthony

    The Kung fu panda 2 guy is saying that he wants the drugs you’re taking because they’re obviously really good drugs that they’re making you hate the movie when it’s awesome…

    …or something
