    If you need a horror fill in I do the Midnight Drive-In podcast. Always happy to hop on skype if need be. Just putting it out there.

  • colin the dude

    I’m genuinely concerned why Frank is always coughing on mic on every episode. Must be a diet thing. I want to offer a prescription of Frank cutting out carbonated drinks for a month and see how he feels afterward. Let’s get this petitioned.

    Also, concerning the Manifesto episode, we know Jay loves to mock Frank’s mild accent but boy of boy is Scott’s accent the absolute thickest I’ve ever heard. I for sure thought Jay would say something at some point but nope.

  • colin the doctor…

  • Jake

    If Frank does veto Antlers it will deprive the junkers of another ‘Cooper Scooper’ rant. This can’t happen.

  • Len F.

    I’m intrigued by Ben Wheatley’s Rebecca remake.

    Also, as a donator and pin owner, I say go ahead and give out the remaining pins. Spread the love!!!

  • Beat_C

    just a few 2020 movies that could be interesting IMO:Hirokazu Koreeda – The Truth
    Kelly Reichardt – First Cow
    Emerald Fennell – Promising Young Woman
    Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz – The Lodge
    Armando Iannucci – The Personal History of David Copperfield
    Kitty Green – The Assistent
    Corneliu Porumboiu – The Whistlers
    Carlo Mirabella-Davis – Swallow
    Rose Glass – Saint Maud

  • Kyle Grimes

    The Invisible Man was garbage. I wanted to puke when it was compared to Fincher. Tons of plot holes too.

  • I’m really surprised that I haven’t seen anybody else here or on the show that is hyped for The Green Knight. It has all the cards it needs that it could turn out to be my favorite film this year. Written and directed by David Lowery, given total creative freedom by it’s producer A24, a stellar cast, and it’s a dark, gothic take on an Arthurian legend.

    Plus, just check out that trailer!

  • Careful bud, FJ has a major anti-David Lowery bias.

  • Andrew Lincoln

    Hate the trailer. Love Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The trailer doesn’t capture the weirdness at all. That’s Lowery for ya.

  • Ben Bueno

    I’m not hyped mostly because A Ghost Story was terrible. I’m not saying I won’t give it a look if it’s good though.

  • Maybe Sean and Jay were simply hyping it up as a bit to mess with Frankie Millennium for skipping out on it.

  • Frank’s habit of watching everything in multiple sittings nowadays is… very concerning.

  • OsoDuck

    A lot of the video game movies have been done to death so I found a substitute for your premium.

  • It’s irritating when people say “the year ahead doesn’t look good.”

    A) That’s crazy talk with how many titles and great directors have things coming out this year (Andrew Dominik, Craig Brewer, Chris Nolan, David Fincher, Charlie Kauffman, Wes Anderson, Pete Berg, Kelly Reichardt, Sofia Coppola, Spike Lee, Denis Villaneuve, Chloe Zhao (has 2), Tom Hanks is in three movies this year, new Bond, Bill and Ted, Top Gun, F&F 9, Quiet Place 2, etc. etc.etc.). I could go on and on with how many movies that look like they have potential are coming down the pike this year.

    B) There are SO MANY titles that look intriguing from unknown directors or sophomore efforts (like the director of The Rider or Goodnight Mommy, etc.). Look at all the stuff coming from A24 or Focus this year. Look at all your favorite actors and what they’ve got coming out. It’s a shit ton.

    C) Every year has a bunch of titles no one sees coming. So many end of year top ten lists are chock full of titles no on had on their radar at all until it was released.

    Saying 2020 doesn’t look good for movies is like saying 2020 doesn’t look good for t-shirts. A) There are a ton of great t-shirts out there and B) You can’t see half of the ones being released yet.

  • Craig

    As someone from the UK, I should probably own more than the single Indicatator Blu-Ray that I do. A part of why I don’t is because unlike Arrow/HMV Premium Collection and even Criterion, is that their stuff is never on sale.

  • Bizzaro Nate

    Dang, did SXSW really just get cancelled??

  • pcch7

    Bit of a scandal going on here, Frank vetoing a movie outside of the podcast is a major concern

  • Glen

    Can I have a pin?

    Postage wouldn’t be much since I live in the Niagara Region & have been listening to you guys for almost a decade. That’s got to be worth something. ;-)

  • Ben Bueno

    Hey I wouldn’t mind a pin, just putting it out there. Patrons, consider me!

  • gibson8

    Ain’t Them Bodies Saints was a steaming turd. Almost unwatchable.

  • gibson8

    Just now you are concerned….? After everything Frank says and does watching a movie in bits is where you draw the line?

  • Beat_C

    it has lily james and arnie hammer as mr. and mrs de winter, so that’s not a good sign.

  • stevens1

    The William Friedkin doc Jay was talking about is Friedkin Uncut, directed by Francesco Zippel. Got a small US release last year but no news on VOD.

  • Sean

    Gonna have to track this one down. Looks like it might be playing on Now TV in the UK.

  • Actually I added the “very” :-)

    He used to do it occasionally and now he seems to do it for every movie – so a terrible situation just got even worse.

  • gibson8

    Sorry Flo. I got the impression you were a Frank apologist.

  • You

    THIS WAS WAS TRASH!!!!! 1 out’a 5. Get a fucking clue FJ.
