  2. I love when a movie which on the surface seems like it should be successful (acclaimed director, all-star cast) turns out to be a total mess. The reviews for this film contain some top-notch roasting (seriously, check out the Rotten Tomatoes page if you're looking for a good time). It seems like an incredibly bizarre and misguided film, and I'd love to hear June, Jason, and Tall John discuss it. Starring: Natalie Portman, Sarah Gadon, Kit Harington Directed By: Xavier Dolan Synopsis: A decade after the death of an American TV star, a young actor reminisces the written correspondence he shared with him, as well as the impact those letters had on both their lives.

    The King's Speech. Sure, the acting is top-notch, but the film itself was like watching paint dry. So many of the other nominees from that year (Black Swan, Inception, The Social Network, etc.) strike me as so much more interesting, memorable, and innovative than The King's Speech, so it wasn't like there was a dearth of qualified competitors. That film was pure Oscar-bait and it's disappointing that the Academy chose the blandest film of the bunch.

    Episode 65 - Wild, Wild Horses

    After an inspired night at the theatre, Michael discusses how Hardy matches up to Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Sue and Phillotson walk down the aisle (again).
  6. Screenwriters Hannah Pearl Utt and Jen Tullock join Matt and Dave to discuss writing, directing and starring in their new film “Before You Know It,” being raised in fringe communities, and the process of casting co-stars Judith Light and Mandy Patinkin. Plus, perfectly made movies about love, where Hannah and Jen draw their inspiration, emulating “All About Eve,” Sundance romances, and coming out as a theist.

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    Yeah, I found it a pretty rough watch and even thought about saying “I’ve suffered an actual brain injury, but not one bad enough to enjoy this movie.” The random other fan I ran into later hated it as well. I really can’t understand why the hosts enjoyed it so much. Maybe it’s full of subtle terribleness that I missed, or maybe it’s just that much of an improvement over last week’s film.

    The Animal (2001)

    Its amazing how many terrible Schneider movies were greenlit in the hopes of siphoning off some of that sweet Sandler money.

    But they drew this line a notepad and crumpled up the paper. Quick, now that they've left, someone get a pencil so we can rub out what they drew on the impression of the next sheet down. Wait... that's not a line!

    June, amazed at Paul's view (usually sexist or disturbing), just says "PAUL!". She says it in a way to mean, What? seriously? this is not ok Paul, please stop.

Tompkins of Superego join Matt Besser for scenes about the origin of Jingle Bells, the phantom of a high school theater, and manipulating the YouTube algorithms.

    These are kinda additional sips to " John Paul blesses us with his character voices" and "June saw something very different / was confused" Jason sarcastically complements a voice with "Wait did INSERT NAME just walk in here? Oh no sorry I was mistaken by your FLAWLESS impression" Jason giggling and giddy asks June (sometimes another), to explain their view- "Wait, wait, wait.. JUNE, what do YOU think happened here"
  25. This week, Bryan discusses LA County’s decision to start collecting data on LGBTQ suicides and hate crimes. Then, Erin talks us through the story of Drag Syndrome, a UK-based troupe of drag performers with Down syndrome that was denied the opportunity to make their U.S. debut by Republican congressional candidate Peter Meijer.
  26. This time's guest was a little bit disappointing. First of all, war is not something that can be taken for granted, but something that should never happen again. The "relatively less" number of people killed by gun violence per day cannot be justified by the widespread human greed and ignorance of communication (the respect for one another's differences) at wartime in the PAST! Moreover, if there is ONE person who became a victim of domestic gun violonce, it should be on the table and we do our best to prevent further tragedies, which are basically taking someone's "life" away. It is obvious that life is something to be cherished. "Numbers" can't lessen its severity. Second of all, sometimes, "changing the world" demands to change the fundamentals. This is beside the climate change, but actually my country changed the president about 4 years ago. Faulty policies, privatization, tax problems, educational problems (especially the history about Japanese colonialism), and so many have changed for the better because the huge crowd didn't hesitate to make a huge change. We went out with our candles every night until the government hears our silent resistence and our demands are met. If we didn't do anything just because it is about the constitutions, the fundamental things, none of it would've happened. What needs to be changed has to be changed. Women couldn't vote and even get a proper education not so long ago. African Americans couldn't have the same basic human rights as white people have. LGBT people couldn't get married and there was the time when they had to repress who they are as the soctiety didn't approve their "lifestyle choices". We all know that these people, not only them but also all the human beings, are entiltled to celebrate their authentic selves by common sense. But all of these remarkable changes didn't happen in a day. Some people do challenge the fundamentals one day at a time, little by little. Size doesn't matter when it comes to change. I believe it's about doing something about it, just a little bit of try.
