Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Cinemantics, co-host Jeffery Heatherly and I bring you an extra-long discussion of our favorite film of 2010, Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World! During our wide-ranging conversation we defend Michael Cera against people who claim he only plays one character, applaud the film's depiction of gays, geek out over video game references and rebut a particularly scathing review. In short, it's an episode anyone in lesbians with this movie will want to hear!

Observe & Report

Co-host Jeffery Heatherly and I discuss Jody Hill's 2009 black comedy Observe & Report. Populated by a despicable cast of characters, it's a fearless movie that goes to some truly dark places - and we love it. Topics of conversation include the career of Seth Rogen, Anna Faris' willingness to make herself disgusting in the name of comedy and the mixed critical reception of the film. Two final points: You should not compare this movie with Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and Jeff is not a terrible person!
