- Yes, Matty mistakenly said "steadicam" when discussing "Cloverfield."

- See the trailer for Michael Stahl-David's Slamdance entry, "The Project":

- Brett Haugen from Minneapolis was the listener who couldn't believe I (Adam) didn't mention Anton Chigurh on my Top 5 Villains of 2007 list. It was the 'Anton Chigurh Memorial List.'

- The Feedback segment on "There Will Be Blood" does not contain any spoilers, but the discussion is specific enough that anyone not wanting to have their reaction 'tainted' might consider fast forwarding their iPods.

The correct title for the Hunter S. Thompson doc playing at Sundance is "Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson."
