…the politics of oooooh feeling good (about being right).
What the F.I.L.M. Army lacks in rhyming ability, they make up for in sheer movie netcasting might. And this month that might is enhanced with the help of a raft of special guests. James Vorstenbosch of the unaffiliated-but-still-pretty-cool Film Army (real men use acronyms) talks with Evan about how his group helps young Canadian filmmakers and which Canadian films everyone should see. Nate returns with a big fat sack of House Of The Dead, the best movie about zombie pirates since that one with the guy from 21 Jump Street. And if that wasn’t enough, Chris from Blogulator and Bald Bryan from The Film Vault join Courtney and Evan in the War Room, where a bunch of white men talk about politics. Typical.
This month’s soundtrack was provided by Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, available on DVD and Blu-Ray November 9th.
Even Canadians can appreciate the value of a free 2 week trial of Netflix. Not only does it help support the F.I.L.M. Army, it makes it easier to see all those random movies we mention during the show. You did right them all down, right? For those cadets with smart phones, be sure to find us on Stitcher, the free podcast radio app for iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Palm Pre. Dumb phones need not apply.
More information and show notes can be found in our forums. You can find out how to submit your segments to the show there as well. Questions and comments can be left below or can be sent to email@example.com. The F.I.L.M. Army can also be found on Facebook and Twitter, or in the hearts of the brave men and women who fight everyday for film and internet independence.
Fancy Pants Gangsters’ takeover of the Internet hit Phase 1.02 today, as we are now listed on Stitcher, the podcast radio app for all your major smartphone devices.
If you’ve never heard of Stitcher, here is how it works. You get the free app from the app store of your choice, and then you have access to thousands of audio shows from us as well as BBC, NBC, and other acronyms as well. It’s better than iTunes in that the shows are always immediately available, so you don’t have to download them, wasting memory which can be better used for mobile porn. So now you basically have no excuse not to listen, unless your ears were shot off in Korea or something, and there are surgeries for that now.
We don’t have our own channel (yet), but you can find all the Fancy Pants Gangsters shows at the links below. We are so excited to be even tangentially connected to great podcasters like Adam Carolla and NPR, and we look forward to talking to people that found us through the Stitcher app. Thanks to Courtney and Chase for suggesting it, and Matthew and Rachel at Stitcher for being so great and easy to work with.
Have you ever wanted to send something in to the F.I.L.M. Army? A review or maybe a commentary on cinema or DVDs? Maybe a rant or even a recommendation? Here’s how:
Get yourself Audacity (free) and a microphone (not free, but you should already have a microphone for all the Chat Roulette you are doing). Record something anywhere between 3 and 15 minutes (some exceptions will be made beyond these limits, but they better be damn good). Save the file in the audio format of your choice (mp3 preferred) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a description of the what your segment is about. If we use your segment, you’ll get your name on the show and a $25 Amazon gift certificate for your troubles.
We do reserve the right to edit your segment for content, clarity, and timing, so don’t get all uppity if we cut it down a bit. We promise to be gentle.
Deadline for submissions is the 25th of each month, so be sure to get your segment in on time. The earlier the better.
Any questions, feel free to email us or leave them in the comments.

How exactly does Evan feel about Inception director Christopher Nolan? He paid me 50 bucks to make this the show title.
While Nolan may be all the rage on the movie papers (and in Evan’s heart), there’s more going on in the world of film and DVD. I mean, just look at all the stuff we talk about this show:
Brotherly Love: The Karate Kid – Courtney & Cameron
Box Office Poison: I Know Who Killed Me – Nate
War Room: Inception group review – Courtney, Evan, Todd (with a little Jeff)
For the cost of less than 1 movie ticket, you can get a free two-week trial of Netflix and help support the F.I.L.M. Army. For pennies a day, you can end the suffering of independent film podcasts.

Say what you will, the Nicolas Cage Hair Length vs Film Quality Ratio has largely yet to be disproven, and Sorcerer’s Apprentice doesn’t look like it’s going to upset this universal truth.
Old favorites and new locations abound this month, as the Army does it’s first War Room in Pants Tower. While it lacks the defensibility of the still-in-progress Casa De Pantalones, it does have that certain bourgeois charm.
Trailer Feature – Jeff
Lights, Cameron, Action: Letters To Juliet – Cameron
Box Office Poison: Battlefield Earth – Nate
War Room: Flawed Films – Jay, Evan, Courtney, and Jeff
All music this month provided by Repo Men, available on Blu-Ray and DVD July S
