First pass…

# Red Dawn
# Superman 1
# Superman 2
# Superman 2 Donner Cut
# Say Anything
# Gross Pointe Blank
# The Paper

That is the list of ones I would want to be “in the room” for.

As for the rest…

I think the Godfather should be high on the list, but not one right after the other. Give each some breathing room from the others.

Also, “Amelie” was suggested in the chat room a couple of weeks ago. (Added 10/15/09 – Tony)

I’ll probably have more suggestions as time goes on.

Watched Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures last week. That would a be an interesting one to do as well. (Added 10/26/09 – Tony)

My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Curse of the Golden Flower
The Ocean’s Franchise
Almost Famous (All 5 added 10/27/09 – Tony)

Enemy Mine (Added 10/29/09 – Tony – I was thinking about adding this one myself the other day and just forgot to. Thanks for reminding me.)

From the recording of Big Trouble…

Adam suggests Kung Fu Hustle.

Phil suggests Shaolin Soccer.(Both added 10/30/09 – Tony)

Add Apocalypse Now to the list, per your statement in the Halloween ep.

FYI… Never seen it. (Added 11/04/09 – Tony)

Do The Right Thing is a terrific movie…

Lots of good stuff on that list, a lot of good things that I’d like to take part in- starting with Fight Club…

Of course, my own additions that I’d like to suggest would be the following:

Reservoir Dogs
A Clockwork Orange
Dog Day Afternoon
Heavy Metal
and if you’re doing Mad Max eventually I’d figure a Road Warrior follow-up would be happening… (All 3 added 11/11/09 – Tony)

Hi guys,

I’m a recent listener and I have to say that I really enjoy the show… I’d like to put a movie in for consideration… “Let The Right One In”… Yes, it’s a vampire movie. Yes, it’s a horror movie. However, it’s so different than the recent entries into either one of those genres and I definitely think it’s in my top 5 flicks for the last 2 years… There’s critical acclaim all over this movie and, in my estimation, it’s entirely deserved. Seriously, this one is creepy as hell!!!

It doesn’t come out till next year but, I’d like to hear you guys talk about Scott Pilgrim vs the World when it comes out.

The Iron Giant came up tonight in chat after the live show. It could make a good companion piece to one/some of Brad Bird’s later films with Pixar.

In fact, I don’t see any of the Pixar movies on the list. With Toy Story 3 coming up…I can’t remember, have any of them been done already?

Iron Giant is always a fantastic movie. Actually, lets get some animation representation up there.

The Princess and the Frog
Wall-E (Editor’s Note: Booster Seat Producers tackled this one in this episode: )
Millennium Actress
Metropolis (not Fritz Lang’s, though that’s awesome too)
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Thief and the Cobbler (Recobbled version)
Those DC Animated movies (New Frontier, Doomsday, Wonder Woman, Public Enemies)
Ghost in the Shell (and maybe 2.0, but only if you can get a Philosophy major in the conversation)
Princess Mononoke
Spirited Away
Kung Fu Panda (Editor’s Note: Booster Seat Producers tackled this one in this episode: )
TMNT (Editor’s Note: Someone needs to do his homework 🙂 – )
Genius Party and Genius Party Beyond
Monster House (Which would go great as a triplet with Monster Squad and The Goonies) (Editor’s Note: Yeah, we did The Goonies already too.)

And that’s just the past 4 years, give and take a few films. (Most added 12/17/2009 – Tony)

(Some of those might not work XD but there’s a few in there that would be great discussion)

Um, live action:
Demolishion Man
Predator 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold
Deep Blue Sea
Battle Beyond the Stars
Logan’s Run
(All added 12/17/2009 – Tony)

Repo Men
Blood Diamond
And my ultimate guilty pleasure Wing Commander, loves me the big ship space battles

Machine girl, Old boy, Series 7, Whip it, fight club, A life less ordinary, snatch, donnie Darko are all on netflicks instant que

Battle Royale, True Romance, Black Sheep(not the Chris Farley 0ne) are not.

You guys have to watch Cemetery Man (aka, “Dellamorte, Dellamore”). It’s a horror/black comedy, in which Rupert Everett plays the watchman of a cemetery where everyone buried comes back to life in seven days. He and his Igor-like assistant have to kill and re-bury every zombie. It’s a movie about a guy whose job is killing zombies, and he’s incredibly bored with it.

It’s bizarre, surreal and hilarious. Also, naked zombie Anna Falchi.

I’d be keen to hear an episode about Withnail & I (or as I like to call it, “The Best Multi-Doctor Story Ever”).

How about talking about two Will Ferrell movies that he is actually phenomenal in; Elf and Stranger Than Fiction? Or Will Ferrell movies that are great despite Will Ferrell; ie Anchorman, The Other Guys and The Candidate.
