#192: The Orphanage / Walk Hard / 2007 Top 5 Blowout

This week, Adam and Matty top off 2007 with a potpourri of Top 5 lists, including Worst Movies of the Year, Most Annoying Performances, Best/Worst Date Movies and more. Also, Matty admits to being a bit of a fraidy-cat when it comes to scary movies, so Adam holds his hand during their discussion of the latest Spanish ghost thriller, "The Orphanage," directed by first-timer J.A. Bayona and 'presented by' Guillermo del Toro.

Plus, the guys find time to "Walk Hard" with John C. Reilly for a review of Jake Kasdan and Judd Apatow's music biopic spoof.

Music by Chuck Prophet from the new album Soap and Water.

- Watch an interview with "Orphanage" screenwriter Sergio G. Sanchez and director J.A. Bayona here.

- Matty actually meant he saw a trailer for "Meet the Spartans," not "Epic Movie."

- See Filmspotting friend Michael Phillips deliver his worst movies of 2007 here.

- Just for the record, Matty was embellishing when he suggested we considered a Top 5 Steamiest Scenes of 2007 list. It was not a potential topic we discussed.
