Released: Friday Nov 22, 2019 at 06:00 AM - Length: 1:08:18

Top Five Cir Nick Kyle Themos Eva Lawrence from Ep 200.3 Jon from Ep 202
6 Complaining about plot hole, especially minor technical ones, is stupid - Plot Hole       
5   Writing off a movie based only on what its about is missing so much else about what makes a good movie - Overshadowed by Controversy     It's good to have Themos back, and Eva is cool  
4 The Passion Of Joan Of Arc isn't the best movie ever, it isn't even the best Joan of Arc movie - The Passion of Joan of Arc I've never seen a Luc Besson movie I thought was good - Luc Besson     Regardless of what he claims, Cir's actual catchphrase is 'Probably one of the most...'  
3 I haven't read Scorsese and Coppola's article, but generally agree that movies in the MCU do need to be treated differently from Cinema - Marvel Cinematic Universe Andy Dryer and Tom Hammerford are the worst character in Parks And Recreation - Parks and Recreation Ketchup is the worst condiment - Stock "Yuck!" Firefly was just OK - Firefly Food writing is unnecessarily pornographic, spending the majority of the article talking about things other than the food - Food Porn Kyle needs to drink for referring to Dead Space and Spider-Man games as a movies multiple times Bacon is amazing, but people who put it in chocolate and ice cream are monsters
2 Raisins don't belong in anything - Stock "Yuck!" The Marvelous Mrs Maisel is not marvelous, it's a bad show - The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel The film of The Shining isn't that scary - The Shining If you climb Mount Everest for fun, you're an asshole - Mountain Climbing Movies are too goddamn long - Extra-Long Episode On The Rocks keeps recycling tropes on their show The new Star Wars movies aren't that special, but that's OK, because Star Wars was never that special. - Star Wars
1 If God is real, then God is Racist, and if God is Racist, then Batman is Racist - Batman The Last Jedi is the best Star Wars film of all time, and that is not a hot take, that's just a fact. - Star Wars: The Last Jedi The Designated Hitter is boring, and National League teams are built better than American League teams - Baseball Brussel sprouts are the worst vegetable, and brussel sprout apologists refuse to acknowledge they are cysts excised from cabbages - Stock "Yuck!" Fuck Calvin and Hobbes - Calvin and Hobbes Nick is still wrong about pretty much everything If you have more picks that you're supposed to, you should just own it rather than cheat with "Runner ups" and "Honorable Mentions" - On the Tropes
