I really dug this movie review heavy episode. Very engaging and the dynamic between the 3 of you during the second half worked really well. Plus, when the show was done I was craving for more. Pretty indicitive of the quality of the show. I'm mixed on Baumbach, having liked Squid & The Whale but disappointed with Margot at the Wedding, so I'm glad you guys enjoyed Greenberg. How is Ben Stiller? That was one of my main concerns with the film when I saw the trailer. For some reason I laughed hard when Downcaste pleaded to go from 5 to 1 during the top 5 instead of 1 to 5. He was so into it.G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Not high cinema but very entertaining. I hate to put qualifiers on a movie I really do love but I think it's appropriate to level your expectations going in. Hope you enjoy it. - WR
Again with things based on real life being unoriginal. Duh, it's real life. Since Joan Jet is the producer I would think she had more output to keep the story straight. What do you want, Jesus on a flying unicorn to come down and divinely empowering her with music talent? Cliche? Did she or didn't she have an alcoholic dad? Is it cliche, maybe, but it's real.Kingsley complaining about a lesbian scene, how cliche. First he's complaining about how there are cliches all over the movie then he wants a sexual revelation cliche scene to complete the lesbian scene? Dude, I haven't seen the movie but from how it has been explained it just sounds like they had lez sex and they didn't think it was a big deal and that that's how it happened. Does it drag in the rest of the movie? Was this promoted as a lesbian movie or story based on true life?Is Kingsley happy about being promoted on here? I think if he does become big time and people find these podcasts it'll help explain his homoerotic undertones and why Jesus pops up and saves everything at the end and why all the non-Christians died.

For instance, in real life, the band's drummer allegedly threw Sid Vicious off of a boat, into the Thames, after he made several unwanted sexual advances on Joan. It was depicted in the movie, but I would've liked to see that, instead of the After School Special that was Cherie's (Dakota Fanning) life.We knew practically nothing about the other girls, including Joan.And that triteness that was Joan Jett's "first formal guitar lesson" which looked like the intro of a rock music video from 1982 COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED THAT WAY. Nobody is that corny. Cliche like a muthafucker. If you are gonna make up something, make up something that is good.
I'm just saying how many times something of significance in your life has happened and you end up realizing how cliche it is. Like before when Kingslee was complaining about how cliche it is for a cop to be drinking and thinking about blowing out his brains, but that it is how they generally commit suicide and it happens more often to police officers than the general population.Maybe those cliche scenes has significance to the creators of the movie and the scene you wanted to see didn't. And maybe they didn't want to show things in their life they deemed personal and only gave the audience the hum-drum. If that is so then it does make them guilty of making a dull movie about the plainer aspects of their life or their life could just be plainer that you thought.
