    Looks like I missed the train on the deceased cinema talk. That was a great episode guys. I always have a soft spot for theater stories as I have had my share of great / weird stories that generated at the flicks. I once saw a tub crash through the celing of my theater and cause mass destruction. Once they stopped a screening of Roadhouse only to kick me and my friend out because we gate crashed the showing… so many others. But I wanted to relay one that happened a few years ago. During a screening the newest Rambo flick in a packed house a group of about 7 or 8 typical stupid teenagers were acting like a group of buttholes. Talking, Texting, the usual. No one said anything. But everyone wanted to. After the house lights came up a solitary black man in the back stood up and called attention to himself. And very calmly apologized to the whole theater for the actions of the group of kids. Basically he without either being sarcastic of nasty verbally embarassed the group of kids. He recieved a round of applause. It was one of the best things I have ever witnessed. I shook the mans hand out in the lobbay and told him I would never forget his greatness. And I haven’t. Also, on a side note . . DAMN SIR! Homefront review.

    Hello Boys.
    I’ve missed you. Hugs.
    Great podcast as always.
    Here is some completely random feedback.

    1. Rafe guttman. Who are you? I quit.
    2. Letterboxd. Thanks so much for getting me into.
    I was a huge fan of this when it was in a different form on netflix in
    ’04 or ’05ish. Remember that shit? Loved it so much and was bitter when
    it was removed. Also I had no clue you were huge fans of iron man 3?
    Sorry for the irony of my first review ripping it. Feel like I am biting the
    hand that feeds me.
    3. Baby business man. I laughed my fucking ass off. To me this has been
    A horrible season of SNL and that was the lone bright spot.
    4. Matt please read every single letterboxd review aloud. Masterpiece
    Theater.
    5. I can’t believe I found people who love clay betrand as much as me.
    Have you guys seen Cobb? “I’m goin to Reno Stumpy! I’m Horny!”
    6. Kill the fuckin Indian.
