    Future of the Show?

    What is absolutely amazing is listening to the latest episode of the Canon, which was recorded right before these tweets. And they were reviewing "A Face In the Crowd" - and Faraci talks about how nowadays, one could get off a plane to discover that he/she has been publicly shamed and that their life is over. I think his public apology is about as good as one can do with a mere tweet, although I don't think just tweeting about it is enough. Maybe I'm a Faraci apologist - I don't follow him on Twitter - but I've seen real growth in civility from him on the Canon podcast over the past year. And I have recognized that some of the traits of his that I find ugly, I also have been guilty of doing.

    Episode #92: STAND BY ME

    Rob Reiner was on fire in the 80s, but I can think of 3 or 4 of his movies from this era that belong in the Canon before we ever consider Stand By Me.

    Episode #91: LABYRINTH

    I showed this movie at my theater this past spring. I recall it being a classic. But nostalgia was the only thing propelling this most recent viewing. Way too flawed to be canon-worthy, even though I still enjoy the film.

    I cannot get over Mickey Rooney's part in this film. But, if everyone else can - I won't bitch about it.

    Homework: Se7en (1995)

    I'm looking forward to voting no on this. And I more often side with Devin than Amy. But I see Se7en much as Amy does: lots of set dressing on a fairly hollow film. It's like a industrial-metal Tim Burton movie - lots of style, little substance. Maybe if I liked the style more, I'd view this more favorably....but the best I can do is appreciate it.

    Episode 111 — Hi, How Are You?

    This was best episode of all 111. I even felt compelled to register on earwolf in order to say that.
