  • Tommy

    Would ‘Hi, Mom!’ be too obscure for the De Palma premie? It’d be good to get one of those early ones.

  • Lori Cerny

    Carrie is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
    Blow Out is on Amazon Prime.

  • Tommy

    Haha. As soon as it hit the time travel stuff, I thought Jay would enjoy Endgame :)

  • OsoDuck

    Sean should take the good officer’s advice when it comes to extracting deep conspiracy insights from Netflix, the streaming service that sits peacefully in more than half of American homes.

    Here’s some true crime that would be up Jay’s alley. I’ve been doing some limited research on the Friday the 13th films and I happened upon a real life Jason Voorhees copycat killer.

  • mitch

    sean briefly describes cold case hammarskjold and scott jumps down his throat and goes on some rant about the movie being bullshit without having seen it, heard of it, or even having heard of the real case. really nice.

  • devolutionary

    I’ve been meaning to rewatch Phantom of the Paradise again. I’m never compelled to re-watch it, but always pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy it each time I do. What a fascinating, beautiful mess of a movie. I would take that any day over The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Feels more like a movie a studio would green-light “after” Carrie, not before it.

  • Sean

    It did not feel like that to me. I thought he was using the movie as a jumping off point for a discussion about the true crime genre and bringing some of his own experience into it.

  • mitch

    I respect that, and understand what he’s saying about being skeptical of a lot of the true crime stuff, but to jump to that conclusion instantly about every new project is crazy. CCH has excellent and seriously impressive investigative journalism with years of interviews and legwork. To write it off is misguided. Sure, some average recent Netflix doc series maybe shouldn’t be taken as 100% fact, but there is a lot of good work being done across different mediums and platforms that deserves a fair shot

  • Kasper

    This ep really cements Scott as my favorite Film Junk guest. He not only has a lot of movie knowledge but also brings lots of good stories and banter. Can’t wait for his next appearance and hope he’ll start to become more of a regular guest!

  • pcch7

    Hammarskjölds death is definitely fishy. The americans and the brits have info that they’re not willing to share. Wonder why. Just the fact that the UN leader’s plane goes down and a lot of people reported that a plane had crashed yet it took like a day before anyone arrived at the crash site

  • pcch7

    There’s an interesting book that you might like called Who Killed Hammarskjöld?

  • Beat_C

    i saw it at a theatre not too long ago, for the first time. going into it not really knowing what kind movie it was, i was overwhelmed by it – in the best possible way.

  • Beat_C

    hot scott in the house! ???????? hopefully next time with singe in tow.

    lol at jay loving “endgame”. nice narrative.

  • bobsponge42

    Let’s get Zak back. It’s time.

  • KylG

    seconded. his early stuff is more comedic and political than his later genre films, so I think it would be worth including. also a brisk 80 minutes and super young De Niro.

  • gibson8

    What is with using the word ‘bit’ to refer to a supposedly funny Frank anecdote or observation? This must have Matt Gourley’s fingerprint all over it ‘cos up to a few episodes ago the word was never used on Filmjunk and none of you were ever comedy geeks (Frank included despite his delusional opinions about himself and comedy). Consider it a new addition to your glossary.
