  1. Amy and I look at this forum a lot, and we definitely keep your suggestions in mind. Here are some guidelines to make your suggestions more helpful for us: - We prefer to do episodes about movies that are available online legally. This is because we want our listeners to have a chance to easily see the movies without spending an arm and a leg. Including a link to where the movie is legally available - Netflix, Hulu, Amazon streaming - is very helpful. - We probably won't do movies from the last five years, unless they're astonishing masterworks. - Yes, we know we need to do more foreign films. We are trying to balance building the listenership (it continues to grow) with covering more less mainstream fare.

    It's Devin's indulgence pick, but is it worthy of the canon? It's up to you to make the call.

    Episode 96: THE BAD SEED

    Don your tap shoes and discuss this campy killer kid movie! Is it canon?

    Episode 94: THE KING OF COMEDY

    Jerry Lewis! Sandra Bernhard! Robert DeNiro! An underappreciated Martin Scorsese movie comes up for Canonization. Is KING OF COMEDY a dark foretelling of our current culture or a minor work? It's up to you!
  6. Simon Barrett, writer of the new THE BLAIR WITCH, nominates the 1999 found footage sensation that started it all, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Is it good enough for The Canon? It's up to you!

    Episode 94: THE KING OF COMEDY

    You wrote your post saying we didn't give our justifications before you listened to the episode?

    Episode 78: BOYZ N THE HOOD

    John Singleton's seminal South Central movie - is it seminal enough? It's up to you to decide if Doughboy and Furious Styles make it into The Canon.

    Episode #92: STAND BY ME

    Rob Reiner adapts Stephen King's novella into a feature film all about finding a dead boy. But does it find its way into the Canon?

    Episode #90: PENNIES FROM HEAVEN

    It's Amy's indulgence - Steve Martin dances and lip synchs in PENNIES FROM HEAVEN. Is this little-seen film good enough for the Canon, or is his sociopathic monster character destines for the trash bin of history?

    Episode #91: LABYRINTH

    Jim Henson brings his Muppets to a coming of age story, creating a cult classic. But is it cut or classic enough for the Canon?

    Episode #89: BLAZING SADDLES

    Mel Brooks' comedic Western tackles racism with both barrels - but is it Canon? It's up to you to decide.

    Episode #91: LABYRINTH

    And Amy has sent me lists of movies and I have picked one. This isn't some kind of conspiracy to keep your favorite movies out of the Canon or to keep it all boy movies.

    Episode #91: LABYRINTH

    I think you're jumping to a lot of conclusions about how we pick movies for this show.

    Episode #91: LABYRINTH

    I would say we drew the line at THE GOONIES, which did not get in.

    Homework: Labyrinth (1986)

    It means most podcast listeners are in their 20s and 30s and most podcast listeners like to download episodes that are about movies they know and they have an affection for movies from the 80s.

    Episode 77: SEVEN

    David Fincher's influential serial killer movie, SEVEN (or is SE7EN?) is up for discussion this week, and you'll be surprised to find that it's a bit contentious. Or maybe you won't be surprised - it's episode 77 after all.

    The DreamWorks Animated Library

    No egg, sorry if I was too snotty. But there's no chance.

    The DreamWorks Animated Library

    Weird joke thread.

    Episode #88: A HARD DAY'S NIGHT

    Richard Lester's film not only changed the language of pop cinema and created music videos, it showcases The Beatles at their most irreverent. But does it belong in the Canon?
  22. It's Audrey Hepburn at her most iconic this week as we discuss BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S. Is this romantic comedy canonical or is a trifle to be discarded at the end of the night? Your call!

    Who is your favorite Beatle?

    Oh man I love that fictional album.
