  1. Zach says:

    I never noticed that Del Toro sounds so much like Ren. 

  2. Ryan says:

    As a horror geek, this was an amazing episode! A great, rising horror (but not strictly horror) filmmaker who sounds like as big of a geek as me and ALSO manages to be entirely engaged and engaging in the podcast? Awesome. Follow it up with Adam Green perhaps? 

  3. English Dave says:

    I’m pretty sure that the Chinese symbol that forms in the lightning at the end of Big Trouble translates as ‘Carpenter’. I wasn’t very aware of Joe over here in Ingerland but I enjoyed this podcast immensely, he sounds like a lovely fella.

  4. Shealyndj says:

    I’ll never be able to un-picture “crimson tide”…Bravo Sir, bravo.  Money shots are gross anyway and you should all be ashamed of yourselves! I’m glad I mostly watch girl/girl…

  5. Grant Gunderson says:

    I have listened to probably 60% of all the Nerdist podcasts and the “editing” story is perhaps the best and simultaneously worst moment on the podcast to date. @ 31 mins 

  6. Nikki says:

    really sucks what happened with KoB and in turn, Joe’s name as a director when someone else effed it up :/

  7. kate says:

    guys-how did you miss the opportunity to use one of the best lines from Scrooged?! Can you PLEASE stop the GOD. DAMN. HAMMERING!!

    • Chris Hardwick says:

      I am crushed that I missed this!!! For penance I will staple tiny antlers onto a mouse’s head.

      • Joe Lynch says:

        We all get IBC towels for this, no VCRs. For the love of GOD and our own BODIES…I can’t believe we didn’t Frank Cross the shit out of that moment.  

        • Three Toes of Fury says:

          I have nothing witty, humorous, or even poignant to add to this thread.  Im merely commenting so i can say that i was part of a conversation between Kate,  Chris Hardwick, and Joe Lynch.  
          Peace & Points!

  8. Three toes of fury says:

    Woot!  Lynch on Nerdist!   Ive recently been listening to the Movie Crypt alot and checking out Joe (and Adam’s) stuff.  
    Everly is a blast…Joe created a unique set of challenging rules for it and then found ways to be crazy creative within that rule set.   If you like fun shoot-em-ups (a-la The Raid or Dredd) then check it out on VOD.
    As for Joe’s story from his brief stint editing p0rn?….if there’s a record for the most f’d up story EVER told on any podcast,   just give it to Joe right now.
    Peace .n. {said with ahnold accent as Mr Freeze} “Enjoy your Brrrrrrrr-ito Batman!”

    “… To make things perfectly clear: A great big H in the hall.”

  10. klue says:

    One of the best podcasts of this year so far. The porn-editing story and the Peter Dinklage story made me laugh out in the middle of company work place ethics video. And this is the only time I can recall where the guest is clearly a huge follower of the podcast, and acts like most of us would in his seat. Great stuff.

  11. Dave says:

    So when Joe Lynch said in the episode that he was at G4 and you walked by and said hi to him and then Weird Al that it made his year, well I know just how he felt, Because you gave a shout out to my podcast Super Hero Speak at the beginning of the episode on the community cork board and that just made my year! Thank you! Great episode. I’m glad to finally hear what really happened to Knights of Badassdam. 

  12. CJ says:

    Lynch killed it. Great episode. And The Movie Crypt is by far the best podcast out there for film-makers or horror fans in general.

  13. Lunis says:

    I watched KoB and thought, meh.  Now that I know the story behind it, I can appreciate it for something more.  Great guest.  Look forward to seeing more of his work.

  14. Charlie says:

    Chris pronounced Laconia perfectly, way to roll snakes eyes Hardwick…that’s good right, snake eyes?
