2004 was supposed to be my summer. I was going into my senior year, had turned 17 and had a very unsafe 1991 F-150. I then spent my summer....seeing nothing but trash. Troy, I, Robot, AvP, Paparazzi, Dodgeball. I think Collateral is the only movie I saw that summer that I've actually gone back to. Good memories.Anyway, I love these episodes, can't wait for the next one. Happy Anniversary guys!
Thank you, Brian!!!! :)
Thanks for this, it's a real blessing to get this every week, especially nowadays. Just one request, could you guys be more in love?
Ooh! I forgot! Howl's Moving Castle? Any thoughts?
A HUGE blind spot for me! I'm the worst! I must get to this soon. Thank you for reminding me. <3
Of all the many things you seem to be, I doubt the worst is one of them. Hope you like the flick whenever you get to it. A castle moves!
Beautiful, beautiful movie! I am a fan of Ghibli-movies and this is not an exception.
List episodes are my favorite! I also started making lists around the same time. I’m about the same age as you guys. Neither of you had The Village on your original top ten, so my list is automatically more embarrassing My original top 10:1. Garden State2. Primer3. In Good Company4. Man on Fire5. The Terminal6. Sideways7. Kill Bill: vol 28. Hotel Rwanda9. The Villiage10. Napoleon DynamiteNew top 10:1. The Terminal2. Man on Fire3. Kill Bill: Vol 24. Garden State 5. Primer6. Napoleon Dynamite7. Hotel Rwanda8. Sideways9. Anchorman10. Mean GirlsAviator , Huckabees and Eternal Sunshine were on my honorable mentions, only seen them once. I need to rewatch those and adjust my list. Of my new top 10 The terminal is by far the movie I’ve seen most from this year (5 times?) thus the #1 spot. The rest I’ve seen 2 or 3 times.
I also lost my affection for Garden State, but the top 3 are the only ones I love from that year
I thought HOTEL RWANDA was a different year... what is wrong with me? HA ha! I mess up every list! I had IN GOOD COMPANY in my notes somewhere!
I only saw In Good Company once and have not had the urge to revisit it... I think the reason it had resonated with me so much at the time was that I was managing a pizza restaurant just a few years prior, and there were a few people I managed that were twice my age
Great podcast, you two! And so great to hear praise for The Aviator, which I've always liked even though it has taken a real critical beating in recent years. It's an ambitious-but-flawed movie, but it's about an ambitious but flawed person. Curious why The Invisible Man doesn't make the best horror of 2020 list.
Another great one! Happy anniversary yall !!
Thanks, Ben!! <3
Ahhhh you two are so stinkin cute together......That is all. Happy anniversary.
I loved the Spiderman monthly presentsbuild up. As a big Raimi fan Spiderman was also super exciting to me. Happy Anniversary guys. Hope you have an Xtrordinary great 16th. PS WE NEED TO SEE THAT DANCE. YOU KNOW THAT RIGHT....
Always amazed that you both kept your best of lists from so long ago. Makes for a great podcast.It was interesting hearing you discuss The Aviator and how it elicited sympathy for Howard Hughes. I'm currently reading Karina Longworth's (You must remember this podcast) book on Howard Hughes, and she paints a decidedly unsympathetic portrait of him. Well worth reading if you're interested in early Hollywood and Hughes in particular.
