Anyways.  Listening to these is like catching up one earlier seasons of Lost.  It's fun knowing some of the stuff that's going to happen.
Like the name change, and the fact that Crash wins Best Picture.

Wow, it must be what Kyle Reese from The Terminator feels like listening to that.

Ok.  Wow.  Totally at random some "regular listener" and "friend to the show", Matty "Robbinson" Ballgame gives his top 5 villians on show #64 and disappears back under the stairs.

Split Reviews of both King Kong and Munich. (Two films with a lot of hype surrounding them and are barely talked about today).

Hitchcock marathon.

Lot of talk about movies "so bad they're good"

yeah early cinecrack is great :) Very addictive and I think everyone who really gets into filmspotting eventually finds themselves hooked on the stuff for a few months until they finally exhaust the list ;)

I always loved the way Sam could really get Adam fired up - there are some strong moments of okay we are just going to have to agree to disagree, and then Sam will throw in one last comment just to really get on Adam's nerves.

Adam and Matty are just too similar in taste to cause the same level of tension, or maybe Adam has just mellowed a little. Kids will do that to you ;)

Oh, reminiscing. Remember before you were Junior, Junior? Oh, and Chat Law! Good times. Thanks for posting this, ferris- it's bringing back lots of fond memories. Just wait 'til the Battle of the Lake House!

I do, does that make me part of the cool crowd or the loser crowd?
