To me, what I most remember Second Sight for is the fact that, leaving the parking lot after watching it, my friend drove the car straight into the concrete base of a light. Somehow with it being dark and rainy and the base being painted dark brown, he totally didn't see it. Nothing to do with the movie, of course, which was mostly dumb.

Man, Paul burned me on this one!

I think I remember Second Sight, but I might be mixing it up in my head with "Vibes", which used to run constantly on HBO. That one starred Cyndi Lauper, Peter Falk, and Jeff Goldblum, and also featured a prominent psychic element.

Oh man, Second Sight was rough for me. I'm glad I didn't see this when I was a kid, since I had such a crush on John Larroquette. He was so flat! Little me would have been heartbroken.
I hope you guys had a great holiday season, and I hope the next year is full of nothing but happiness and prosperity for you and yours!

Okay, I’ve got an end of the year question for the forum. What movie could you not stop talking/thinking about this year? It doesn’t have to be from 2017. It doesn’t have to be good or bad. It just has to be remarkable.

There are a few that I feel like I discussed a lot, but the one that immediately springs to mind is One From the Heart.



It was...something else.

This is a hard question. Some late year contenders in my mind for this. There are certainly lots of movies I talked about a lot or wanted to talk about a lot but I'll choose the movie that has stuck with me the most.

Memories of Matsuko for whatever reason really hit a cord it me. Living alone in Japan, there are more than a few themes in the film I can relate to but also to some of the bigger themes as well. I don't know if I can recommend it or not as I'm not sure how well it will play for those that don't live here, but I think this movie hit me emotionally deeper than anything else this year.

Get Out and Jim & Andy definitely.

Get Out was the movie for me this year. So amazing and so many things you notice looking back and rewatching.

I sure did talk to a lot of people about the Room/The Disaster Artist... I felt like an ambassador of Pop Culture. "Sometimes movies are so bad that they're good!"

I guess the one I watched and thought about a lot was "Whitney: Can I be me"... the documentary about Whitney Houston's life and final tour. I am such a sucker for rockumentaries and that one is really well done. I have talked to exactly 0 people who have seen it.

I also was very moved by Natalie Portman's performance in Jackie. Which I know was from 2016, but I saw it sometime this year... brutal storytelling.

Mayhaps these are standard answers for 2017, but for me it was definitely Logan for a long time... until Blade Runner 2049 came out, which I still can't get out of my brain. I haven't been moved by a movie so much in theaters... I don't know, maybe ever. It's one of those all-time movies for me at this point.

I haven't seen Get Out as horror movies are not something I can watch with my wife, and I'd rather not watch it in brief increments (which is how I watch movies for this podcast). As for movies that stuck with me the most, I would probably have to say the Babadook, recognizing that it's a few years old now. I did watch that in increments unfortunately but it definitely stuck with me.

Spoiler

I found myself surprised picking this since Big Sick and Ladybird (also liked this a lot) were pretty good/great films and I saw them both in the theater. I almost picked Coco.

I think you'll really love Get Out then because it's not a typical horror movie but just as you said what Babadook uses for their fear Get Out uses racism and it's really stunning. Jordan Peele fuckin' knocked it out of the park!

Agreed. The situation in Get Out is definitely horror, but it's more like an episode of the Twilight Zone since there is almost no gore. It is a fucked up spin on the Stepford Wives.

In this vein I also want to recommend It Follows on Netflix if you've never seen it. There's not really any gore and it's so well done. The movie is set in some sort of alternative timeline where it's the 80's but people have modern technology and the premise is spooky as hell.

Yeah, It Follows, Babadook, The VVitch, and Get Out are some really landmark works in horror that, as a devotee of the genre, I feel privileged to be around when they have been released in theaters. I've rewatched It Follows and The VVitch several times and they HOLD UP. If I had to pick a favorite out of that grouping, it would probably be The VVitch. The time period, the detail, the tone... it really hit me. It Follows would be a close second... since it sparks some real Catholic Guilt horrors that I still harbor in my subconscious (ok, my conscious as well) when it comes to sex.
