In Topic: Submit your pick for The Canon's Ultimate Listener's Choice!

29 June 2018 - 08:35 PM

Viable candidates
-Spider-Man 2: I'm sure some will say Superman and The Avengers is enough superheroes for the Canon, but this is legit the best of the genre. (Also it's my favorite movie so I have to throw it in.)
-Psycho: No Hitchcock yet! None!
-The Incredibles: I know it's superheroes again, but the Canon is very light on animation, and this is one of Pixar's best. Maybe Toy Story is a better option for historical purposes. (Though Incredibles 2 makes both these films look super outdated to me now.)
-Inglourious Basterds: I just really like it so much better than Pulp Fiction (the film I think most will say) and Reservoir Dogs (which is already in).
-Scream: It revived the slasher genre! And it's super fun, but not talked about!

Stretches, but I still love them
-Zodiac: I know most love it, but it's still hardly been seen, so you can't make the historical argument that it launched this recent interest in true-crime. And there is more "exciting" Fincher films for people I think.
-The Lego Movie: Again, not a lot of animation and this was a classic right out the gate.
-GoldenEye: The first time 007 was successfully rebooted before Casino Royale. I know people let there feelings on the later Brosnan films and dated '90s stuff get to them, but I think this is a really well crafted movie with an actual good Bondgirl with her own story. It does a lot of things CR does. (Even though CR would do it better.)

Also, I have a friend who adores animated films, and she suggests:
-An American Tail
-The Great Mouse Detective
-All Dogs Go To Heaven

Lastly, a fun verses I thought of the other day: Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story vs. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. I know that it won't be done, but it just sounded fun to me. The Canon could also use some comedy.

I'm very excited about a new co-host. I miss the show sounding like lawyers intensely litigating.

Do I have to rewatch Quantum of Solace for this episode, or can I wait two weeks? (Also, is next week's episode Austin Powers 2?)

Maybe it's not the best idea to really like Elon Musk, Matt Mira.

I was going to point to Matt's Letterboxd list for theme songs but it hasn't been updated in nearly a year.

It's the Ewok celebration song from Return of The Jedi.

THANK YOU! I should've known. And I knew about his letterboxd list! If I had to guess, he probably stopped updating the it because you can't add a movie more than once.
