FS #275: Overlooked DVD Picks / Top 5 Tearjerkers
Friday, 25 September 2009 01:00
Sept. 25: It’s alive! Not to be outdone by Netflix's crack team of engineers and mathematicians who recently revamped the efficacy of the company's online DVD recommendation system, Adam and Matty roll out a high-powered movie recommendation machine of their own -- the Rec-o-Matic 2600 (beta). Powered by beer and our co-hosts own sense of self-admiration, Adam and Matty harness the power of the Rec-o-Matic to complement their slate of suggested Overlooked DVD Picks. And while it’s generally accepted that there’s no crying in podcasting, the boys offer up a powerful theoretical lineup for Lifetime's "Movies That Make Men Cry" Marathon with their Top 5 Tearjerkers. Ladies, take notes on why lines such as "Shane! Come back, Shane" can bring NFL linemen to their knees.

Also on the show: Music by Alligators, Listener Feedback and Massacre Theatre -- presented by Pixar Talk. This week's winner will get the Pixar DVD of their choice.
