This week Mike and Sean tackle David Fincher's big hit Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike along with the late George Sluizer's 1988 film about a missing woman, The Vanishing. They'll also recap Sean's trip to the 2014 Vancouver International Film Festival, celebrate Independent Video Store Day with their Essential Films You Can Only Get at Scarecrow Video, and discuss the concept of "It" while making their picks for modern day It Girls and It Boys on the 150th birthday of writer Elinor Glyn. All this and Mike finally watched Boyhood too.

Wanting a break from all the weird and dour movies they've been watching lately, Mike and Sean celebrate the bright and colorful of Fox Cinemascope romantic comedies, with 1953's How to Marry a Millionaire, starring Lauren Bacall and Marilyn Monroe, and Down with Love, from 2003, with Renee Zellweger and Ewan MacGregor. Also, on the 150th anniversary of the birth of cinema pioneer Louis Lumière, they make their picks for Essential Early Film. All this and the Mariners too.
