Link doesn’t work. It seems to go to battleshippretension250.mp3 as opposed to battleshippretension245.mp3.
Fixed. Sorry about that.
I’m gonna guess that the person who called “tinker, tailor, soldier, spy” boring is Adam Quigley.
That’s weird. Other people have said that, as well. Do I give the impression that I don’t like Adam Quigley?
Well, I remember that a couple of episodes ago, one of you made a sarcastic offhand comment about getting punched by Adam Quigley or something like that. It definitely seems like there is a playful tension there. Also, since I’ve been listening to the slashfilmcast for quite a long time, the hosts seem to have an aversion for films that fit into this complex political thriller mold, which I imagine that you guys probably like. I was particularly irritated by their criticisms of “Syriana,” which is a film that is much more involving and satisfying than your average action-based thriller if you give it your attention. I think the main reason it’s Quigley, though, is a I recent tweet of his: “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Snooze.”
Regardless, I think this movie is going to be really good or great. Since I’ve read the book, I’m especially excited to see it.
I don’t think I was referring to Adam but, for the record, I’m no fan of Syriana either.
Actually, I swear to God, it’s pronounced Core-ee-ohl-ay-nuss.
Yep, like anus. And once you get into the rhythm of it, it’s actually a much more dynamic word.
So, I listened all the way through… and I’m easily baffled. What was the joke about the industrial park?
I honestly don’t even remember.
Thank you for talking about Outrage because I had never heard of Takeshi Kitano and thanks to that discussion I watched Fireworks and that movie is amazing.
I’m glad you did so! Such a great movie!
Please compare Polanski’s crime and time served with the crimes at My Lai and time served. You guys aren’t wrong to be indignant but you’re very, very selective.
Odd that you mention that. David and I were talking about the My Lai massacre right before the show and we decided that we’re actually pretty okay with it.
Seriously, though, I’m not totally sure I understand what you’re saying. Are you somehow suggesting that we should grade on some sort of curve?
What the fuck are you talking about?
Nice coverage. Regarding Tintin, it seems like every American I’ve talked to has never read any of the comics. I pity your childhoods! 😉
Don’t you pity me. I never ready any Tintin because I was too busy reading about George Washington and freedom and bald eagles! Yeah!
