    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    If Paul & Amy ever put out their live Beatles ep of Unspooled, you guys will be shocked how they refer to Give My Regards To Broad Street. (They didn't enjoy it.) haha

    Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    Yea I was reading on The Shining a bit last fall when I went to see the remastered re-release and it seems that when it came out, it wasn't particularly well-received. I know that hasn't stopped other movies from making the list when their rep grew, but I reckon that because of it, combined with all the other Kubrick movies on there, is why it didn't make the list. It seems to be seen as fairly niche, still. (I agree it probably should be on there though.)

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    I always loved the animation but when I watched it last year or so for the first time as an adult, I was basically appalled at the voice actors who sounded so bored and uncharming, which is like the opposite of what Beatles should be
  5. that's all the proof i need, it def took place in the Arctic summer

    Musical Mondays Week 83 The Commitments (w/ Once)

    Best of the Decade Part 3 (2016-2019)

    Yea same. Moonlight and Get Out for sure, and I'd be cool with Black Panther or Spider-Verse repping superhero movies on the list if they wanted. I do think Lady Bird made a pretty decent cultural mark so maybe it could fit too.

    Best of the Decade Part 3 (2016-2019)

    Haven't listened to the ep yet but my picks: 2016: Moonlight, Arrival 2017: Get Out, Lady Bird* 2018: Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse (bonus b/c I flipflop all the time which superhero movie I like more) 2019: I dunno yet. No pick for me. I still have to watch a lot. Current faves are Ad Astra, Parasite, Lighthouse. I'm surprised they'd cover 2019 since they could easily just wait and do it in Feb at Oscar-time like they did last year. @sycasey 2.0 is Lady Bird not 2017?
  13. You've seen enough of these to know there's more than one choice! haha 12 Dates is up there tho. Christmas Inheritance is appallingly bad. A Snow Globe Christmas is a super weird premise that would be hilarious for them to talk about.
  14. You can't rule it out, logically
