#423: Silver Linings Playbook / Skyfall / Top 5 Credit Sequences


Is manic depression a frustrating mess, or a fascinating one? It's a November release round-up as Adam and Josh discuss "Silver Linings Playbook," plus "Skyfall" and "Anna Karenina." The guys also open up their 'little green bags' to cough in their lists of the Top 5 Credit Sequences, and discuss their 4th Blaxploitation Marathon film, "Black Caesar."

True-true feedback


- AK: In honor of my #1 pick, this week I offer you both sins of commission (Camille Saint-Saëns) and sins of omission (Trent Reznor).

- AK: Obviously an unintential contradiction in the "Anna" setup... Josh ranked it the lowest of the three movies we discussed; I ranked it in the middle.

- Massacre Theatre winner: Kelly Sayer
