    So sorry to hear about Jay’s loss recently! Also did Frank ever listen to the podcast where Tarantino discussed why he chose Dunkirk as one of his favorite films of the decade??

  • Lori Cerny

    RIP to Mr. Cheel.

  • pcch7

    My condolences again to Jay.

    I wonder how Frank would rate Chris Nolans Time Trilogy against other trilogies

  • Glen

    The local paper the St. Catharines Standard recently had an article on Jay’s documentary series “Cursed Films”. Here’s the link…

  • Dustin Manning

    First and foremost my deepest condolences to Jay and his family.
    Onto unimportant pendantentry , concerning the daughters name in that awful movie. The wife’s (Rosario Dawson) last name is Faulken. Wa wa

  • andyluvsfilms

    I love this podcast. Just love it.

    A question for Jay, Sean and Frank: Do you listen to any film pods yourself?

  • Ben Bueno

    My condolences Jay. I’m so sorry and it’s so sad.

  • Sean

    I listen to the /Filmcast, Cinecast (twice a year!), Shock Waves and the DGA Podcast plus occasionally some of the interview shows like WTF, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend and The Bill Simmons Podcast. I’ve been looking for some new podcasts to listen to lately but I really can’t seem to find anything I like. Podcasting is dead. :)

  • andyluvsfilms

    Filmspotting is still a very good old but also the two guys at FilmPulse do a very good pod/site for the smaller and more far out stuff. Thank you for your reply and all your hard work.

  • devolutionary

    Already sent my condolences via Patreon/donation but it bears repeating that weekly podcast in spite of hard times is always greatly appreciated.

    If anyone wants the official Junker’s Top 10 of the Decade:

  • schizopolis

    If you’re into exploitation & b-movies, I recommend Cult of Muscle, The Gentlemen’s Guide to Midnite Cinema and Junk Food Dinner. They’ve got a Film Junk-vibe..like listening to laid back friends with good taste, talking film, etc.

  • andyluvsfilms

    That’s great. Thank you.

  • schizopolis

    I stopped listening to the /Filmcast years ago. They’ve dropped off a bit and tbh, I can’t listen anymore to reviews from sites that get primo access from major studios to movie premieres, star interviews, paid trips to movie sets, etc. and expect them to be objective. /Film Daily is basically an MCU/Star Wars brown-nose podcast.

  • Gotta disagree about Doctor Sleep. Thought it was a really refreshing, main stream horror/thriller. The trailer isn’t good but the (theatrical) movie itself is pretty fun.

    If you’re hoping for The Shining again obviously you’ll be disappointed. But for just a good, thrilling, somewhat glossy adventure I had a lot of fun.

    And the reason for returning to The Overlook is explained pretty clearly in the movie. It’s not “just because.”

  • Christopher Quack

    Just wanted to share my condolences to Jay and his family. Like so many of others said, even though you dont know us, we feel like we know all you guys. I lost my dad almost 13 years ago to similar circumstances, he was 59. It doesnt get any easier but whatever hurts now just think of all the funny memories you’ll share about him in the future.
    This is more than just a movie podcast to me. Reminds me of hanging with my friends. Just like you guys, we’d give each other shit and break balls, but in the end you can always tell theres true friendship between everyone. And its times like this when it really shows and you need it most.
    Hang in there Jay and much love to the whole filmjunk crew

  • Radius Nodes

    Love the podcast but don’t often visit the site. Just wanted to send my condolences to Jay. I know I’m just a stranger on the internet but, for what it’s worth, I wish you and your family all the best

  • What’s the deal with Jason Mewes’ fist in that picture? Is he using the Cock Knocker’s glove or something (haven’t seen the film) or simply unproportional drawing?

  • Panzerfaust

    It would be nice if there is actually a written list of all the films you guys talk about in the podcast.

  • Sean

    I’ll try and do a proper post with the lists but for now Chandan was kind enough to write them up here:

  • LordAwesome

    Marriage Story will win Best Picture because it is an actors movie and actors are the biggest voting block in the Academy.

    Look at the recent history; Green Book, Shape of Water, Moonlight, Spotlight, Birdman, 12 Years A Slave, Argo, The Artist.

    All of these movies are actors movies with at least one nomination for acting.

    1917 has no nominations for acting. The last movie to win with no acting nominations was Return of the King and 1917 is no ROTK.

  • Actually the last movie to win with no acting nominations was Slumdog Millionaire in 2009 :)

    Regardless, I really don’t see Marriage Story winning. Somehow I feel Tarantino will win or Scorsese.

  • LordAwesome

    I had completely forgotten about that movie’s existence.

  • Sean

    Interesting theory. I had always heard that the PGA Awards were the best predictor of Best Picture but at this point it feels like it would be a pretty major upset if Marriage Story wins this year.

  • Beat_C

    thanks for the episode. it was an intense listen.

  • colin the dude

    I want to thank Jay for sharing his story in such detail. I too have someone close to me who is suffering with stage 4 cancer and it changes your life. Much love and respect to you boys.

    Also, it is time to abolish the 6 out of 5. It means absolutely nothing anymore. Get rid of it.

    Dude out.

  • Lior

    I am only catching up on this now. I do not use Twitter or Instagram so I’ll use this platform to say to Jay that his story about his dad’s final days was touching and sad and full of his usual great insights about life and the universe and everything, and all sprinkled with a little but of humor. I do wanna offer my condolences, and it all made me realize that even when we listen to this show we only think we know what’s going on with the people involved, because to think that all this took place in the background while Jay was doing the show for three months…

  • Lior

    Sean, try The Movies That Made Me hosted by Joe Dante. I listen to it occasionally depending on the subject matter/guest.

  • Indianamcclain

    Just listening to last weeks episode right now. Sorry to hear about your loss Jay.

  • Craig

    One of the problems with /Filmcast is that apart from the main review, 80%-90% of the stuff they talk about is TV. The main presenter than moans that up until near the end of the year, he didn’t enjoy that many 2019 releases. If you’re only watching one film a week and most of that being multiplex fair, it’s like “well duh”.

    I know Filmjunk touches on TV a little but they keep it to a reasonable amount.
