Alex and Rorie are unusually upbeat considering the crappy weekend it was for films! We talk about Colombiana, Don't Be Afraid, Our Idiot Brother, but there are tangents ahoy! 80's wrestling! Does Zoe Saldana need a better agent? What movie do you hate that everyone else loves? Are new podcast segments on the horizon? What does God need with a starship?

Trailers recently have been getting worse and worse. However, the recent Girl with the Dragon Tattooamerican remake trailer I actually really enjoyed and reminded me of other great and memorable movie trailers out there. There is an art to doing trailers well. I think that Hitchcock's The Birds trailer has to be one of my all time favourites. Can you remember any of your favourite trailers out there?
Rorie - The I am love trailer
Alex - I miss 80's style trailers. Like romancing the stone.
Alex - Inception did a good job.
Alex - The Cobra trailer is amazing
Alex - Fight Club has some amazing internet trailers
The movie "WIN WIN" with Paul Giamatti came out on DVD last week; and I don't know if I should watch it. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a very high rating of 94%, but Eric Pope only gave it 2 out of 5 stars here in this site.
Have any of you two seen it? What's your take on it?
And also, have there been other movies where the general opinion at Rotten Tomatoes and Screened are that contrasting?
Rorie - Generally speaking just because I gave a movie a bad rating it doesn't mean you shouldn't see it
Alex - I'm more that way with things you should see as opposes to things you shouldn't see.
Rorie - I have heard good things about win win
Howdy Matt and Alex!
Are there any movies that you guys are ashamed or, at the very least, hesitant to admit you didn't like very much? I say so because I am a huge hockey fan, but I could never admit that I didn't like Slap Shot to other hockey nuts without upsetting a few people.
Anyways, I love the site, keep up the great work! I would still be a casual movie fan that misses out on a lot of great stuff without you guys.
(Also, you can totally ignore this second question, but are there any plans for the site to have a dark background?)
Alex - I have a couple, I don't really like the wizard of Oz
Rorie - Yeah, im with you on that. I don't hate it.
Hi Matt and Alex,
I just finished watching Taxi Driver for the first time. Based on the way in which people and other movies quote that one line regularly, I had always assumed "Are you talkin' to me?" was the product of Robert DeNiro being a badass, but it turns out it's the ramblings of Robert DeNiro being a crazy person.
My question is, can you think of other notable movie lines which are regularly taken out of context?
Rorie - No I can't really think of any.
Alex - No, no, no its not.
Hey Rorie and Alex
I'm curious what your favorite PT Anderson film is.
My personal favorite is Punch-Drunk Love, followed closely by Boogie Nights. I also like Magnolia a great deal, but I'm not as in love with There Will Be Blood as most people seem to be. Day-Lewis was great in it, and I can see why people like it so much, but compared to his other films, I thought it was just okay. I haven't seen Hard Eight.
Rorie - I really have a hard time with magnolia
Alex - alot of people really hate that movie
Alex - as for my order it goes
1. Boogie nights
2. There will be blood
3. Punch drunk love
5. Hard eight
Rorie - I never got through punch drunk love
Having just read the 80's retrospective feature Alex did a while back, I was wondering how you guys think people might look back as decade defining movies (or decade defining movie characteristics) for the 2000's and early 2010's?
Rorie - 2000 would be, characteristics - CG stuntmen
Rorie - 1 movie maybe Fight club
Alex - Fight club was 99
Rorie - Comic book movies took over
Alex - the lack of characteristics is the real characteristics
Rorie - Darkness and tone maybe. Nothing is really bright
