I didn't know this was based on a true story! Did you mention that in the podcast and I just missed it? Anyway, we really enjoyed watching this... except for the wig. LOL. Loved Alan Rickman. No one rolls their eyes or grimaces as well as he does. Actually, it was a good cast all the way around. Keep 'em coming!

Yeah I love movies like this. It's not about what happens, but HOW it happens. We know Frost beat Nixon, but HOW did he do it?

Rickman legitimizes any film he's in, but it was surprising seeing an incredible performance from Pullman and a really decent performance from Freddy Rodriguez (I've only ever seen him in Scrubs before this).

Chris Pine is cool, but yeah, that wig is clown shoes.

At first I - for some god-forsaken reason - thought this episode was about bottle rocket; and immediately avoided it.
This 'bottle shock,' on the other hand... I keep hearing about this 'bottle shock'... I saw only part of sideways, and abHORRED those bits of it, but this looks far more interesting.
As far as france is concerned though, unfortunately, US wines still uniformly suck, which is just silly and uninformed. Should see if this movie could be released in france, get some people thinking...

Hey Zachary! (can I call you Zach/Zack?)
I did like Sideways, but mostly for Virginia Madsen, and a completely unexpected performance from Sandra Oh. I like Thomas Haden Church, but they made his character SO unlikeable I couldn't understand why Miles (Paul Giamatti, who rules btw) would continue to be his friend.

As for France and wine, I get it. It's obnoxious, but I get it. It's a pride thing. Like America and Baseball, even though MANY of our players are now coming from other countries.

I really liked Bottle Shock, flaws and all. Really any excuse to see Alan Rickman in a flick is going to be good times!

Haha yeah, Zac is just fine.
Honestly though, the wine thing I just don't follow. I'm franco-american and I can definitely get behind the french soccer team, big time, even though I'm not particularly into the sport, but... wine? It's really not as if the French are particularly CRAZY about their own wine - they'll willingly dis a sizeable portion of their production - but they more or less dismiss all other countries' wines, including italy in many cases, which is just... senseless! (For some reason chile often gets a pass though. I guess it's nonthreatening enough?)
On the other hand, America has to get the HELL out of soccer! Seriously, there are limits...

No I totally get it. Many Americans aren't really into Baseball, but throw out a comment like "Japan has the best pitchers" and watch the "patriotism" fly LOL!

I can't really speak about USA Soccer. I've been a Brazil fan since I've known about the sport...
