  1. The Matrix. Also I loved the Lolita song choice this week!!! The Kubrick version is way better MARIA.

  2. Incredibles and Interstellar because they are so creative and I loved the music and action involved in those movies.

    • Incredibles is a genius pick. I’m surprised Jon didn’t pick a Pixar movie.

  3. For me it’s a tie between Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Edge of Tomorrow. Both movies surprised me by how creative they were. Also, I loved the Flash finale, though it was a little confusing and the cliffhanger felt cheap.

  4. Truman Show! I know Maria and Adonis both did Jim Carrey movies. Man, he’s in a lot of original stuff. You guys should bring that up.

  5. I was going to say “Big Fish” but then I looked it up and saw its actually based on something. This is fine because I can just say Office Space!

  6. The Kubrick version of Lolita is by far the best. I have to say however that my favorite director is Christopher Nolan. Sorry to say that I don’t really dig Wes Anderson overall…

  7. Usual Suspects & The Matrix! At least I think Usual Suspects is original. Oh and where do I buy the Mad Max comics???

    • Ugh Tomorrowland sucked so bad. I think Jon only liked it because he’s not mature.

      • I didn’t know about this 0_0 Well, now I have to read it. And see the film. And play the game. And give my soul to Mad Max.

        • That’s not a bad idea.

    • They’re not out yet I don’t think. For now they’re just a possibility that I heard about (can’t remember where haha). But Hollywood is trying to milk Mad Max in any way they can.

  8. Why was that Reed guy being such a jerk to Jon? That was like really awkward…The podcast was awesome everyone! It’s seriously getting better every week. Mine is Looper. And yes, I’m a single mom Mike 😉

    • Yeah that was really weird. Almost as weird as Reese Witherspoon dressing up as Tinkerbell for $$$

    • I love Reid! He was just joking around obviously. He should be on the show more often. I love how good he is at knowing tons of stuff and he’s pretty good at explaining news and whatnot. Even if he was a littttttle harsh on Tomorrowland 🙂

      • Reid’s just an ol’ friend of Jon’s, it’s all playful banter here on NC. Except for me and Mike, he destroyed my home planet, we’re mortal enemies -.-

  9. Flash is better than Arrow, but The CAPE could have trounced both of those bad boys. My movie is Good Will Hunting.

  10. I pick District 9, and I think Ridley Scott’s first Alien movie was totally original right? Oh, and Pacific Rim!

  11. Synechdote New York is wayyyyy more original than Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    I really liked Tomorrowland. I think just some people expected something else from it and walked away disappointed. My expectations were pretty low so I liked it fine. It’s not a bad movie at all despite the ending.

  12. Eh, Daredevil was great, but I think Smallville is the best superhero show of all time. My favorite original movie is Tree of Life (I know Jon will love that).

    • Really? Smallville? That’s like the Cable Guy of superhero shows.

  13. I think we (the commenters) should do a Podcast MVP every week and vote! I vote Maria because she picked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    • I vote Jon because he didn’t even flinch during Reed’s dickery.

      • But that’s canceled out by Jon’s stupid review of Tomorrowland.

    • This idea’s awesome! I vote Mike for picking There Will Be Blood for the Netflix pick of the week. That’s probably the best Flix Pick they’e ever done on the show.

    • Mike for Warm Bodies sequel, Kubrick defendingness, and just being hilarious

    • Podcast MVP: Mike for hating Invader Zim. As soon as he said that I cheered.

    • Adonis for not getting his love life mixed up in this podcast :/

  14. The Peter Pan origin story is awesome, both of what Adonis and Mike mentioned is pretty awesome. Hook as well. My favorite original movie is definitely WALL-E

    • Such a good movie. I was so annoyed that no one watched it .

  15. Pitch Perfect 2 sucked Adonis. You talked about Kickass 3.

  16. Raiders of the Last Ark.

  17. Warm Bodies should absolutely get a sequel. Mike you’ve proven your worth yet again.

    • That’s based on a book dude.


    Poltergeist sucked guys. It wasn’t scary, and the CGI looked like garbage. Plus, the kids were such bad actors I couldn’t even finish it…

  19. Scream is my personal favorite movie, and it being an original movie makes the list for me.
