  1. My favorite biopic is probably Goodfellas, with Schindler’s List a close second. I definitely need to see these pictures. And also, I’m not against the idea of an episode where Sam just reacts to memes.


  2. I don’t really have a favorite biopic. To be honest, I haven’t seen a lot of them; fiction is better then fact, in my opinion.
    Hope we see those pictures! (Sorry, Adonis…)


  3. So I don’t watch a lot of biopics but I would have to say my favorite is The Pursuit of Happyness because it is just amazing. Ok so there were a lot of things that happened in this episode that I would like to address #1 being I was in public while listening to the podcast(my mistake) and I’m pretty sure that a kid in my ENG 104 class thinks that I’m crazy because when Adonis said that Sam did Adonis I died!!!! #2 I live in Iowa and we basically have corn con but we call it the sweet corn festival but all of the things you guys said about corn con is pretty much what happens there. #3 Jon I know you said no one wants to here about the movies you hate but I want an episode dedicated just to that. And #5 HOW THE HECK IS SAM YOUNGER THAN ME!!!!!!!!!!! Like I knew that he was young but HIGH SCHOOL?!?! I just started my first year of college and I’m turning 19 on Thursday!!!! I feel so unaccomplished!! Although I do have moments like Sam where people think that I’m a lot older than I am. And finally ending off my comment. Adonis I am sorry I am normally on your side but these pictures sound hilarious/adorable so #AdonisPoolParty Sorry bud.


  4. My favorite biopic is Kickass 3. #Neverforget #Adogoneswimmin #Adonispoolparty #SplishSplashMFCKR

    Jon, you were right that the director of the new Dredd is more of a TV director. His name is Pete Travis, and I believe it’s been announced that he’s not doing Dredd 2, unfortunately.


  5. Per Jon’s recommendation, I watched Passion of Joan of Arc on YouTube and was destroyed! This movie is so amazing I watched it again right after and listened to classical music the whole time. I have no life.


  6. My favorite biopic is The Passion of Joan of Arc. It’s one of my favorite films of all time and I was really happy when Jon brought it up as his show and tell. To anyone that hasn’t watched it you have to see it. It’s pure cinema gold. I’d also recommend Foolish Wives, directed by Erich von Stroheim. #Adogoneswimmin


  7. Jon, I forgot to comment last week, but I too am a Slytherin. Also my favorite biopic would probably be Ghandi. I do really like pursuit of happyness, but I only read the book and I still haven’t seen the movie.


  8. Unfortunately I am morally opposed to the biopic genre in general. They are awful and must be done away with. Because you see if Sam thinks that they are good than they must be terrible.


    1. Please call the the Antarctic rape prevention hotline at 555-672-197 to report any suspicious persons. Thanks for your help

  9. I haven’t seen Sully yet, but I think from what you guys have said its worth checking out, but I’ll probably wait till it is released digitally.
    I haven’t seen many biopics, but I hope to watch Joan of Arc next week so I’ll let you know my thoughts on the next podcast.
    I have a question for
    You guys that you didn’t read because it was in the same comment as “Irrelevant emoji stuff” here it is: do you think that any of the so far unreleased movies will be better/worse than your picks?

    PS. I’m in Ravenclaw or Slytherin, and Horned Serpent or Thunderbird. (I’ve taken at least twenty quizzes, and they all seem to have different answers, so I’m going on the Pottermore quiz and the house descriptions.)


  10. I’m a Slytherin, and I don’t have any shame with that. People with ambition change the world, and if they are of good character they can be just as much heroes as someone from any other house. As for best biopic, I’d have to say the french film “Les Intouchables” (2011), where a man from the projects is hired to be the helper of a very rich man who is paralyzed from the neck down. Their friendship is amazing, and both are very funny. Don’t be afraid of checking out a foreign film, this story could have easily taken place in the US.


  11. Im a big fan of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Oh not a biopic you say? Well who’s fault is that?
