    I agree that Midsommar is very well made, and the production design is amazing. But I wasn’t a fan of it overall.

  • Lori Cerny

    There is a drop-box locker just over the Canadian border in Niagara Falls, NY. Think it’s called 24/7 Parcel? Don’t know how it works.

    Otherwise, you guys must have a US fan that would be willing to host / drop / Parcel Post ship the merch? Save you some serious money as those FJ mugs I received were super-expensive for Sean to ship to me.

    I’d have no problem commuting to Niagara Falls (US or Canada) to pick-up my pin to save costs.

  • Is this the return of Nu Frank?

  • tyler mikol

    Thanks for the episode fellas, it’s been a rough week for me mentally and listening to my Canadian homies is just what I needed. This is definitely Nu Frank. Also, i NEED a Film Junk T-Shirt. TAKE MY MONEY!

    I hope Crawl hits our theatre soon. I know Midsommar definitely will after the current Disney train clears out this month. Completely echo Sean’s sentiments with The Apostle. Some effective gore and horrific elements but storywise and plot, a wet noodle. Such a missed opportunity considering it’s a period piece. Dan Stevens sleepwalks through much of it.

    How much do I have to pay to insure that all future shows are at least 2.5 hours long? I have a blank check in front of me made out to “the boys up in Canada”.

    I also need a Film Junk T Shirt…

  • Jonnie123

    Film Junk t shirt would be great! Take care of yourself Tyler.

    Jay, if you enjoyed Captain Alex, you might enjoy a doc called The Prince of Nothingwood, about Afghan filmmaker Salim Shaheen who has made over 100 low budget films. The guy is a lunatic.

  • OsoDuck

    Slightly off topic but this documentary, except for references to eerie Men in Black, is amazing. The whole event comes off like a David Lynch movie brought to life. It was turned into a bad Richard Gere movie but this documentary is the thing to watch. I feel like it would be up at least one of your alleys.

  • LongSlog

    I’m going to buy a Film Junk t-shirt either way, but I’m a lot more likely to wear it if it’s not a garish/over the top graphic t-shirt. I mean, I’m going to wear it either way, more likely to wear it out of the house.

    Simple logo on the front, understated, classy. That’d be great.

  • Loofton

    I was completely broke for the 700 telethon. I would love a second chance to donate for a pin!

  • Sean

    If we have any pins left after we send everything out we will see what we can do. Or if there is enough demand we may look into another batch with a different design.

  • Mrespony

    Put me down for a t-shirt.

    Revisiting this episode, Jay’s videogame voices at 7 minutes in are hysterical, I’m dying
