This was a great episode, and even though I already saw the title, when it came up on the show, i spurted milk through my nose.

on a packed standing room only train.

seriously.

Did a great job summarizing Adventureland, just listening to people talk about it makes me wish I was watching it right now. As for the last couple minutes, I didnt want the movie to end that way until I actually watched it. As for the 'soap opera moment' – I didnt really think of it that way so much, I felt like it sort of earned it, like for that situation for those characters it wasnt that out of line.

Funny, Goon, I said after we recorded the show that I hope nobody is drinking anything at the wrong time. Could result in destroyed computer hardware. Glad it was only commuters that got a shower. 😉

Goon

seriously.

and you had to make this happen within the 10 minute window where I'm drinking milk for the first time in several months.

Rusty James

Is it just me? None of those special features listed have me particularly excited.

Kurt
Guest

Yea, we talked about that in the show. Coen Brothers films are never particularly bright on special features, and usually devoid of commentary tracks.

It's pronounced Jorg Butter-gite.

I'd like to recommend Killer Condom, in which Buttergeit did the FX. A funny German comic book movie about a gay detective battling mutant killer condoms.

It’s pronounced Jorg Butter-gite.

Where the hell were you when I needed you? Its a sorry state when I have to lean on Kurt for a pronunciation ruling.

But I think Row Three might have a t-shirt now with Andrew's eloquent description of Transporter 3. I know I plan on stating that he thinks everything is like Ronin from now on.

Kurt

I remember seeing a one sheet for that Killer Condom movie. Crazy.

Happy to hear the Anvil! love from Kurt. And the fact he didn't get the Sepultura reference killed me.

Two words for you Gamble: fuck you. And yet, I still love you.

the second CD I ever bought was Sepultura's "Chaos A.D."

The second CD I ever bought was The Cranberries – "Everyone Else is Doing It So Why Can't We?" Yea. We vary musically. heh.

Matt Gamble
Guest

I defended you the last time I was on Marina. Alliances change swiftly on the Cinecast!

Goon
Guest

I had that CD too Kurt.

I got rid of it long ago. Still have the Seps cd though. And the t shirt, both long and short sleeve 😛

The last several albums I've bought are kind of all over the map – Animal Collective, The Veronicas, Ensiferum, Fugazi, Thunderheist…

The first CD was R.E.M.'s OUT OF TIME. 1st Cassette Tape was either a) Gene Simmon's Solo Album "GENE SIMMONS", or b) The Beastie Boys – License to Ill. I can't remember which. Oi! It's weird nostalgic minutae at 1:05am.

Just Saw Adventureland. Agreed on how delicate and warm the film is and I loved the languid pace of the film. But oi. That break-up scene was pretty awful, I thought it was going to go all "CHASING AMY" for a moment there. I did like the end scene though.

Oh, yea, and I haven't liked Kristin Stewart this much since INTO THE WILD. She is really really good in this film.

In the end, Adventureland reminded me a lot of ALL THE REAL GIRLS and that is pretty fuckin' fantastic.

"How do you guys remember the second CD you ever bought?"

Because I love it so much.

The first CD I ever bought was a prog/death metal album called "Condemned" by Confessor, which I hated and sold immediately, but through the years has become a cult classic within the metal community, but I never reexplored. I blew my chance to be on the cutting edge there.

Third CD was even more awful, Vanity/Nemesis by Celtic Frost, who were a respected metal band, but this was the nadir of their career, easily 😛

I didnt start buying any non-metal albums until a couple years later 😛

First tape I ever bought though – MC Hammer "Please Hammer Dont Hurt Em"

all Adventureland lovers would be well to read the great interview Mottola did with the AV Club

very open and honest

first tape I ever remember buying is Public Enemy's Fear of a Black Planet, although it could have been Young MC, not sure which came first.

first CD was U2's Zoo.

"Oh, yea, and I haven’t liked Kristin Stewart this much since INTO THE WILD. She is really really good in this film."

Hmmmm….nothing she's done has seen the light of day *since* Into the Wild – outside of Twilight. And hate to poop on your party but regardless of how cheesy that movie is, her performance is great.

On the music note, first tape was the Ghostbusters soundtrack that I forced my dad to buy when I was 7 because I liked the "cute ghost" on the front. First & second CD's (purchased at the same time) Live's "Throwing Copper" and Nirvana's "In Eutero".

Marina Antunes

"“Buffy”-esque"? Seriously? I may not have seen all 10 or whatever seasons of Buffy but Stewart's character is nothing like her – their motivations are completely different.

And she's a great improvement on the character from the novel; she takes the "shell" and creates a real (or at least realistic) person.

Ooo, and you reminded me to log into my HSX account. I *AM* rich!

Biggest jumps:

Christian Bale (bought at 18.57 now at 96.26) +418%
Johnny Depp (bought at 32.02 now at 157.14) +390%

I did an air band of "Cant Truss It" by PE when I was in grade 6, and got in a LOT of trouble.

I did a music video in grade 5 or 6 of Young MC's 'Bust a Move'

As usual: entertaining podcast!

Speaking of "Who can kill a child" there is a "sort of" remake by Tom Shankland ( W[DELTA]Z ) called The Children which I saw recently and it's pretty good. Scary children and some strong violence with a vibe of Hitchcocks "The Birds". There is a UK Blu-ray and DVD release but I have no information about the blu-ray region code (the dvd is region 2 of course).

here's a trailer for The Children:
