    Episode 98 - Ghostbusters

    I decided to take Amy's advice and make my decision based solely on this movie and not my overall fondness for the franchise, but you know what...my love of this franchise IS solely based on this movie. I haven't seen either the sequel or the cartoon in decades and yet i still watch the original on a near annual basis. It features one of Bill Murray's top two performances (Groundhog Day being the other) and I disagree that he overshadows Aykroyd and Ramis, who are also good. And the special effects are ten times more charming than most of the computer effects we are getting today. Definitely a movie that deserves to be in the Canon of great films.

    Heavyweight Bout.

    LA Confidential

    One of my all-time favorites. I agree, it is good time for this one.
  4. Of the 103 movies discussed so far, only 3 of them have been from the 1940s, which I would argue was one of cinema's greatest decades and certainly has a lot of movies worthy of the Canon. How about a classic film noir like Out of the Past or The Third Man. Casablanca should be discussed at some point. A good VS. round would be The Lady Eve vs. Sullivan's Travels. All of these should be available on Amazon. Thanks.
  5. I would LOVE to listen to a showdown between these two Paul Newman / Robert Redford classics, which I believe both hold up very well today.

    Episode 84: RE-ANIMATOR

    I enjoy RE-ANIMATOR, but I think we are starting to play a little fast and loose with the definition of "greatest films of all time."

    Episode 82: THEY LIVE

    I had always seen the "bubble gum" clip and assumed that that scene was the climax of the movie where he stormed into the ghoul's base of operation prepared to annihilate them. I was surprised when I finally watched the full movie for the first time yesterday that it came when he first discovers the ghouls and takes place in a bank that he just happened to randomly stumble into. Still an awesome line, but it felt more silly and random than the badass moment that I was expecting. I really enjoyed the movie and will surely watch it again, but I can't justify voting it into the Canon. It's just a little too silly and I do not agree that all of that was intentional. There are better movies that tackle the same theme. I'll save my yes vote for Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

    The Bad News Bears vs. The Sandlot

    Two classic kids-play-baseball comedies from different eras.

    Episode 77: SEVEN

    I thought Devin and his hate of cargo shorts was the pretentious one, but now I wonder since Amy thinks anyone who hasn't heard of Paradise Lost or Dante's Inferno is stupid. I first saw Seven when I was in high school--and probably hadn't heard yet of either of those books--and it is still the detective thriller that I instantly compare all subsequent detective thrillers to. Definitely a YES for the Canon.
