Perfectly Cromulent

I think the highest compliment I can pay you all is that I wish you were my friends.

This Podcast is a Sandwich (also, a poem)

Patches is the bread (white, maybe potato). Holds the sandwich together. Katey is the meat. Best when sliced thin and piled high. Da7e is the cheese, not essential, but delicious when he's there. David is the horseradish, maybe the mayo. Controversial, divisive, but an undeniably important component in breaking up the monotonous taste of modern sandwiches. And Joanna is the chutney, everyone wants her on their sandwich, but there's never enough of her to go around.

I respect and adore you all.

Your most ardent champion,


P.S. Can David please explain his exclusion of TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT from his Top 25? Is it still eligible for 2015? Why have you forsaken Marion, David? The world demands an answer.

Why Does Matt Patches Not Go by “Matches”? and other burning questions.

First things first, I’m the Neo-realest.

Now that THAT’S out of the way, I’d like to let you know how much this podcast means to me. It got me through commuting to college, my job delivering newspapers between 2 and 6 AM, and various crises. But, most importantly my exposure to the podcast has guided me and acted as a tool in my growing relationship to cinema over the years. So, thank you.

A few words about each of you...

PATCHES: you’ve got crossover appeal, kiddo. A face for Broadway and a voice for regional theater. The next Scott “Movie” Mantz right here. I look forward to seeing you give the next “Green Lantern” film the vaunted “See it!” seal of potato approval on grocery store checkout lane TVs everywhere very soon!

KATEY: your SUPER EARLY defense of Channing Tatum’s potential as an actor cannot and will not be forgotten. His recent success must be gratifying, but perhaps the only true way you could be karmically repaid would be with a green light for “White House Down 2: Flag Day.” In all seriousness , your Quarter Quell story about going to see “Charade” in the rain is my favorite of any Quarter Quell moment. The mean girls at my high school were all named “Rich,” so I just want you to know how much rehab you’ve done for that surname in my heart.

DA7E: we cool. But, I still haven’t gotten over that time you almost blew out my eardrums with a particularly thunderous music break. Halloween episode, if I recall? I get that you’ve gotta drop those dirty, oh-so-relevant-to-the-discussion beats, but have mercy.

DAVID: you’re my favorite critic. Full stop. But, honestly when I first started listening to Op Kino years ago I could. not. stand. you. I consider this a testament to how our taste can broaden and change over time. (Can someone just lookup the definition of “Stockholm syndrome” for me real quick?) I particularly love your end of the year countdown videos. I find myself watching them throughout the year whenever I’m feeling particularly rudderless. I can’t explain why, but they’re comforting to me. I guess what I’m really saying is that if you’re ever in rural Massachusetts, there’s a pull-out couch with your name on it.

I’ll rue the day when you folks no longer want to invest your time and energy into this podcast. But until then, I’ll be here.
