    Episode 106 - Fatal Attraction (w/ Heather Matarazzo)

    I love The Canon and have been trying to stick with it but I think that this episode, more than any of the other post-hiatus episodes, proves that the show is in desperate need of an antagonist.

    Episode 99 - Sign o' the Times vs. Stop Making Sense

    OF COURSE Parade is Armond White's favorite Prince album.

    Episode 94: THE KING OF COMEDY

    FYI the guy sitting behind Rupert and mocking him during his date is Morrie from Goodfellas.

    Episode 85: BOOGIE NIGHTS vs TWBB

    Great episode and a tough vote because both of these movies belong in The Canon, but I'm going with There Will Be Blood. I have a feeling in 20-30 years when we look back at PTA's output, we'll see it as the point when he started shedding his Altman/Scorsese influence and became a master in his own right. It doesn't seem like the "most PTA" movie right now, but I bet it will in the long run.

    Episode 78: BOYZ N THE HOOD

    Oh cool, another week where one of the hosts refuses to engage with the movie. Devin and Amy should just take turns talking to a wall and recording it.

    Episode 77: SEVEN

    I think it's unfair to criticize Fincher for pandering to pseudo-intellectuals while completely ignoring the fact that a majority of his movies are adaptations of trashy airport novels. It's bringing the high form to low art that, in my opinion, makes him one of the more interesting directors working today. And good lord he's not "name checking" the Marquis de Sade and Dante. He's establishing the juxtaposition between a cop who thinks and a cop who acts. Normally I really like Amy's dissent because she comes at movies with an interesting point of view and brings up ideas that would've never occurred to me otherwise. I even agreed with her on some points here. But this episode was excruciating.

    Episode 76: MARATHON MAN

    Soft no. It's a decent movie, but it's in that mid-tier of 70's paranoia thrillers and it's not even the best Dustin Hoffman paranoia thriller from 1976.
