Well we're deep in the middle of Hitchcock marathon - currently Strangers on a Train, and last couple of shows there's been a lot of talk about Brokeback Mountain.  That's one that I completely missed - including just about everything else that came out that year - all the positive spin has got my opening up my queue again (actually for both these movies)

 It was nice hearing "Alex in Dallas" today with his Brokeback feedback.  Every once in a while I hear a name I recognize from the forums and it's fun knowing how long some of you have been around.

They are flirting with the idea of doing a man-crush top 5.  This should be fun.  I was around when they did the most recent one toward the end of 2008 - and it was for that episode that I first emailed the show.  

Anyways.

I do recall my name prior to Junior. I wonder who else does...

I do and I liked it, but not as much as Junior.

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

Yes.

The best ep will always be the one where I won massacre theater. ah, the memories...

So does everyone remember which episode they started listening at? I can't remember who turned me onto the show, but I do remember surprisingly vividly that my first episode was Cinecast #18: Fear and Loathing in Gotham City.

That video podcast was a memorable, failed, experiment.

On tonight's #76 the first time I've officially heard the phrase "it's going in the pantheon" - referring to Chinatown getting the legendary status that Citizen Cane and the Godfather already had.   Tonight a listener wrote in and called out Adam for uttering the phrase "I hear you're saying but you're wrong" too many times.  I'm guessing this is the point at which this becomes the "inside joke" that eventually grew to become a signature catch phrase borrowed and referenced by other podcasts.  Nice - too unofficial starts in one evening.  If they only knew.

They've just finished doing a Top 5 "most anticipated for 2007" which included "Talladega Nights" (or the "Untitled Nascar Movie with Will Farrell" -that phrase alone tells you all that's wrong with hollywood! )
, "Idiocracy", "The Fountain" and "Zodiac".  Adam's #2 was "Superman Returns".  It's not his fault


They are still doing the two shows a week thing - which I'm really glad they moved off of eventually.  There are rarely clips for the massacre theaters - which makes me very appreciative we have them now - because I'm forgetting what the dialog was when they give the answer!  Doing 6-10s seems in hindsight like overkill and perhaps a bit of a cheat.  Glad that eventually disappeared.  

They did a, I think, tongue in cheek call for a $500 telethon for licensing money so they can do film soundtracks on their bumper music.  Pretty sure that was tongue in cheek.  I'm glad they have stuck with the kinda-sort-indie track.  It gives the show a unique character and indie sensibility

I love how they keep joking around about "the intern" messing things up.  The joke of course being that no such intern existed and the idea was so proposterous that the thought was funny in itself. 

The debate about licensing money and soundtrack music thankfully lasted just one show.  So I guess it wasn't tongue in cheek, since they reported a bunch of people donating money to the cause.  Once again - another would-be pivotal moment in Filmacinecast history.

Really enjoying this thread everyone. One note though -- I think we only got one donation to the cause. More swayed by the emails saying they enjoyed the music, or at least enjoyed being exposed to new music.
