  1. I finally actually liked a film that you recommended Josh! I really enjoyed Spring Breakers. The Britney/piano scene was my second favorite. The “smoking gun” (if you get my drift) scene was my favorite. I’d give it like a 7.5 almost an 8.

  2. Thanks? Oh, come on. You kind of liked TABLOID and PONTYPOOL. I’ll be shocked if you don’t like THE WORLD’S END. Actually, there are all kinds of movies that we both like, you just don’t like the more challenging ones that go out on a ledge. And speaking of challenges, I dare you to watch and not like MOTHER and THE IMPOSTER. Then, I can up my “Hammer likes it” quota.

  3. I loved Pontypool, but that wasn’t on your recommendation. Unless you recommended it to Jay. I’m just messing with you though. Actually, The Faculty is a great movie and if you don’t think so (like Ron) then you’re insane! Speaking of Ron, Kevin Williamson scripts and Werewolves, he likes Cursed… what say you on that one?

  4. The guy who directed The Butler also directed The Paperboy? Seem extremely different kind of films based on what I’ve heard. Also I’m pretty sure you can’t copyright movie titles, unless they are titled after a copyrighted character like Harry Potter or Spider-man, so I don’t really understand how The Butler is copyrighted. Maybe it is a copyrighted character? It still seems that the fact it is a profession would make it okay. There are two films called Crash, Drive, The Uninvited etc.

  5. 3 called THE UNINVITED that I know of! And Andy picked the only of the 3 that isn’t any good. The one that is NOt the American0zed version of A TALE OF TWO SISTERS is in the Criterion Collection.

    I really like THE FACULTY, but I would call it a guilty pleasure in many ways.

    I do not, however, like CURSED. I’ve only seen it twice (once in the theaters and once when I bought the DVD), but have not revisited since I’ve become a Jesse Einsenberg fan, so I will, but I hated it as far as I can remember (yes, I buy movies I hate sometimes for the special features). I also just bought DOG SOLDIERS, thanks to Deadbox Mike, so looking forward revisiting that to see if I still hate it.
