    Episode 215.5 - Minisode 215.5

    This! If I'm making something with raw garlic (like tzatziki or hummus), I always cut the cloves in half and remove the germ to temper its pungency.

    Looking for a particular episode of Bang Bang...

    "Solid as Barack" was Ego Nwodim and Carl Tart as Bashford & Franklin in #534 Solid As A Rock. The "Candy" bit was Carl playing Larry Blackmon from the band Cameo in #557 Word Down. I don't think Bashford & Franklin have returned, but Ego played Entrée PeeE Neur in #543 The 9th Anniversary Show and brought Carl on as her brother Appetizer in #592 The PeeE Neurs.

    Toy Story

    Hard "no". The human characters are nightmarish, the jokes are all very "first thought", it's clear which parts of the dialog were voiced early in the process (where the actors sound big and theatrical before relaxing into natural performances), and Randy Newman is like nails on the chalkboard of my soul. If either WALL-E or The Incredibles were added to the list, they would merit a spot much higher than #99.

    Vertigo

    While I don't count Vertigo among history's greatest plots, I think it deserves its spot on the AFI list for direction/cinematography alone. Watching it for the first time, there were so many moments that I had to rewind just to marvel at what seems like an impossible amount of beauty captured on screen. And this video gave me an even greater appreciation for Hitchcock's amazingly intricate choreography.

    To Kill A Mockingbird

    Amy & Paul cross-examine 1962’s Southern drama To Kill A Mockingbird! They compare the slice-of-life storytelling to later filmmakers like Richard Linklater, reveal Brock Peters’ on-set nickname, and ask whether the film can be considered separately from the book. Plus: author and professor Wayne Flynt talks about his friendship with Harper Lee in her later years. For Vertigo week, what other mental disorders could be the title of a Hitchcock film?

    West Side Story

    Note: I updated the poll to include the West Side Story vs. Singin' In The Rain rivalry proposed by Amy & Paul.

    Same, on all counts. To reiterate what Paul said, if anyone reading this needs someone to talk to (confidentially and for free) call 1-800-273-8255. Their site has resources for Spanish speakers and deaf/hard of hearing people too. And if you're trans and you want to connect with fellow trans people who understand what you're going through, the volunteers at Trans Lifeline are waiting. Call 1-877-565-8860.

    And if you (like me) prefer to receive all information in podcast form, 99% Invisible has a good episode about the Green Book from 2016.

    Best Of 2018: Blockbusters

    If anything, Amy needs to be dragged for naming Rian Johnson as one of the most talented directors at taking a stagnant property in a radical new direction. Not because I disagree with her—Brick is one of my all-time favorite movies and I've been a huge fan of Rian's work ever since—but because Amy is a close friend of both Rian and his wife (and past guest) Karina Longworth. This is a horrible conflict of interest and is totally unacceptable in the high-stakes, contractually-binding world of movie podcasts!

    Best Of 2018: Blockbusters

    I don't know if I consider it nitpicking because I agree with Amy & Paul: the majority of Black Panther is electrifying, which is why the final act feels so underwhelming in comparison. In fact, when I revisited what I remembered to be a deeply emotional cliff/sunset/death scene, I realized I was actually thinking about the end of War for The Planet of The Apes. I pray that Black Panther 2 really sticks the landing so counting it among the 100 best films of all time is a no-brainer.
