  • True, my bad. It’s been awhile since that honor was last donned though (I didn’t remember it therefore).

    You had Anvil! The Story of Anvil on your 2009 list and both of you had docs on your 2008.

    I’ll rephrase: Glad to see the return of a documentary in a Junker’s Top Ten list :-)

  • Sean

    Thank you sir.

    Does Frankie not like First Reformed because he doesn’t believe in climate change?

  • Have any of you guys seen von Trier’s tv series The Kingdom? Would be interesting to hear what you think. Otherwise, it’s a huge recommendation, I think you would like it!

  • Mister Quigley Jr.

    Look forward to these episodes every year, fellas. Thanks for a hilarious and fun 2018. Wishing you guys a happy 2019 with great films and snacks. You too, Frank.

  • Glen


    Do you have to return the screeners to the movie studios or can you keep them?

  • Beat_C

    i looooved “the kingdom”! it was from a better von trier era, where he was constantly putting out interesting things (yes, i think he’s been past his peak for quite a while, and that includes “the house that jack built” – i was surprised about the positive review on FJ).

  • Aaron

    Another great Top 10 episode! Thanks for all the insight and entertainment!

    First off, I officially protest. How can there be voting in the worst Netflix film category when not everyone seen all the nominees, and second, no movie on that list can be worse than Game Over, Man. The Cloverfield Paradox is a cinematic work of art in comparison.

  • Sean

    Your protest has been noted and is fair. It was honestly hard this year for some of the “bad movie” categories because we didn’t watch as many of the bad movies. Definitely need to change that this year!

  • Sean

    Most of them are digital screeners now with the exception of awards season screeners, which we don’t get.

  • Sean

    Have not seen it but would be interested to check it out.

  • Lior

    And we appreciate all your suffering. :-))

    The “issue” with Bohemian Rhapsody is threefold:

    -Historical inaccuracy.

    -Limited time spent on Mercury’s sexuality and AIDS diagnosis.

    -Bryan Singer.

    Payola or not I felt the Globes wins were well deserved.

    Fun story: Lars von Trier took the title from a Danish children’s book.
