    3. Fthismoviefest is one day, but it's good to read your posts all year round. You've got a very unique taste in movies and I always look forward to the stuff you recommend.

    1. Your steaming hot contrarian takes were missed, JM. Riske had to step up to the plate in your absence. Out of curiousity, do YOU like Raising Arizona?

    2. I felt really bad not loving Raising Arizona, but it's just more to love for everyone else???

    3. Hahahaha! Nah, you're fine. Always appreciate the honest and humble way you present your contrarian takes, Riske.

    4. I tweeted out asking if people knew where you were! Stupid work.
      Mike Snyder and I don't love Princess Bride so we picked up your slack!

    5. Nice graphic, Rik!

      Adam, there are a lot of movies I dont enjoy because I can't get over how unattractive I think they are (or the costumes) so I get you! Even tho we have like opposite taste. Beasts of the Southern Wild- right up my alley. Also Captain Fantastic =-O

      I couldn't join but glad to know it was such a huge, fun success! Congratulations on building such an awesome community! Erika is always such a down to earth breath of fresh air on the podcasts.

    6. It's an awkward position. F This Movie Fest is obviously a day of celebration. It's not a time to criticize the movies. If I wasn't asked what I thought of Raising Arizona I wouldn't have said anything at all.

  9. Between my baby and time zones I had to miss out again this year. Sounds like it was a blast as always. I miss you guys.

  11. This was the first time I participated in #fthismovie fest, and goddamnit was it worth it. My housemate couldn't understand why I would stay up until 4am tweeting about films I've seen hundreds of times, but he doesn't know how the can opener works, so...
    Thanks Patrick, JB, Adam(s), Rob, Doug, Erica, Jan B and everyone else for saving me from the hellscape of February. I'm already prepping for next year, time-zones be damned.

    1. No, Mark Ahn is still very much with us. He had a work conflict on Saturday that prevented him from joining us for the fest, but he will back to writing and appearing on the podcast very soon. Unless he is kidnapped.
