@sambair: The ones we've confirmed are:
Face/Off
The Rock
Con Air
National Treasure
Vampire's Kiss
The Wicker Man
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

I'm also running an ongoing twitter tournament to pick an eighth film. So far Wild at Heart, Gone in 60 Seconds, and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance have advanced in that. There's a poll up right now for Adaptation vs. Valley Girl.

@phoenixlol: Sorry, the movie takes like five minutes to get to any actual dialogue and the opening is just kinda quiet. As I said in the show notes, the start point is the 2 second mark of the movie.

@aben: Yeah I was definitely sticking to easy both for the pace of the video and because honestly, outside of the Rift Walkers, I hadn't had much success putting together strategies for the other mech teams. I've started playing on Normal more at home, and obviously that slows down the pace of play a lot, but I really think starting on easy is vital for learning the different mechs' abilities and figuring out how the trios work together.

@bbalpert: I did the opening bit for the live chat side game but haven't dug deeper than that yet. There's some great comedy in this one. The Onomichi mascot side story is exceptionally good.

@kid_gloves: I mean in no way would I suggest that this is the best way for people to jump into 6. What I was saying is that the recap stuff they put in the menu and at the top of the game is functional enough to where I felt like I understood what was going on. There are definitely characters that crop up that you'll have no context for if you haven't played the other games, but you won't be completely lost. I'd still recommend playing the other games first, but 6 at least tries to make its history accessible.

@puchiko: We avoid nearly all story-related spoilers in this. It's mostly just a few side stories and some tours around the two cities and various side games, including the clan creator.

@bjacks27: I like GGR but I haven't watched it in a decade and sometimes you just don't remember things in the moment.

@captaininvictus: I got my thoughts out about the soundtrack in our write-up of the best music category. I love it, obviously, but I felt like I'd kind of given it its due elsewhere and wanted to focus on some of the other elements.

@silvermu: Danny moved to the middle of nowhere this year. It is only a slight against him.
