    Michael Bay Fight Club Theory

    I've never seen a Transformers movie and all I know about them I know because of Lindsay Ellis and her amazing series on it "The Whole Plate: Film Studies through a Lens of Transformers". It's hilarious and insightful and if we ever do give in to Anonnamoose I will be ready with some hot takes!

    I think it's an overdose not a suicide and there's a murder staged as suicide that is very clearly a murder

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I just let out a shocked strangled "Paul!!!" To rival any June has ever uttered at hearing that Paul said he cried at The Hottie and the Nottie. I don't know whose more concerned my cat at my distress over whatever is going on with Paul or me worrying about Paul.
  4. The mothman YMCA song I know is "Mothman! There's no need to be down I said Mothman! Eat a kid off the ground! " Which while shorter paints a very vivid picture in a few words.

    Fateful Findings Seattle Show

    I saw it when I spent the day hanging out with a girl I was seeing and her roommate and her boyfriend. They streamed it for us and I'm pretty sure they neither paid for it or used pornhub to get it. I know she said she was moving to Japan soon but I can text her tomorrow and ask if she can ask them. I'll keep you guys posted! It's truly a WILD movie and you must see it.
  6. I mean it's pretty clear she runs the prison and is just biding her time in there. I *almost* feel like she went to prison and stayed in as an elaborate plot to get the Shaw siblings ( That matter because fuck Owen he's apparently the Shaw family Gob) back together again. The family that breaks mom out of prison is the family that stays together! in conclusion this entire family could give a fuck about Owen Shaw.
  7. I honestly thought it was Zach Galifianakis in something like a Funny or Die type thing
  8. Have we talked about how there's going to be an all female Fast and Furious apparently?!??!?!??? https://www.themarysue.com/all-female-fast-and-furious/
  9. YES!! THE QUEEN HAS RETURNED! I'm so happy you're back! I've missed This Week In Feminism ( and you of course!). I fully agree about the lack of women with true power and agency in these films. It's a strange version of the Smurfette Principal. From what little I've observed of the movies it seems like yes there's more than one woman with a decent role in the groups but they tend to either be romantically linked with a man in the group they belong to or want to be ( be that The Family,the various Bad Guys team, the FBI, etc) they are related to someone ( Mia, Samantha Hobbs, Hattie and her mother, I guess wives might count?), Or they are villains to take down. Which great give me complex women! But I don't feel like they do that very well. I will be honest and admit I haven't seen them all and I'm not a huge fan of them but it always seemed like every woman i on screen was either in love with a guy, his sister or mom, or trying to kill him and even then they seem to want to fuck them.
  10. I cannot make up because I'm a possum impersonating a human woman but I love make up and other people's abilities to use it. I'm very much on board for a How Did This Get Made Up segment on Wig Talk
  11. So I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet. I know they go to Samoa but are they going to the country Samoa or the American Samoa territory? Fun facts the country of Samoa has no military and should they need an army relies on New Zealand's military. Ironically the American Samoa territory has the largest U.S military enlistment than any other state or territory. However citizens of America Samoa cannot vote for President, and are not considered nationalized citizens at birth. It's truly fucked up.
  12. I'm fighting a weeklong migraine and misunderstood who Vanessa Kirby is. For some reason ( meds. Full on hardcore meds) I thought they were talking about Vanessa BAYER from SNL. Vanessa Kirby: Vanessa Byer: Two VERY different women. I'm not going to lie though I loved the idea of Hobbs and Shaw with Vanessa Bayer more .
  13. Paul Paul! PAUL! Love yourself enough to hope for more than to get things out of a hamper.

    And about the greatest gift Casey ever got her! Hint it involves a pizza but no music in the harsh Sunday light of day.

    THE QUEEN RETURNS!!!!!! May I be the first to welcome you back and offer you my still beating heart?
  16. These actually made me like the movie more? I would have preferred this version of the film. It even made Mickey likeable

    I mentioned it in the other thread but I loved Spice World as a kid . I don't think it's a masterpiece of cinema, it's absolutely perfect for this podcast, but I was sad that they didn't seem to get its fun kooky vibe. I thought I would be in for a fun happy time of tomfoolery ala The Room or any of the other ridiculous but fun movies we have seen. It's not a gem like Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2 but I did think that they seemed to not get the vibe. It's camp! It's fun! It's Spice World! Now if anyone needs me I will be blaring Say You'll Be There and other works of musical genius out of my TARDIS like tour bus.
  18. Truly it's the only course of action anyone should ever take.
  19. While I agree no one should trust a mall concert it seemed like she just wandered over there to catch her breath and get away from Fred after the restaurant fiasco?
  20. I like how our sides now have official bands. We need to draw up official other things as well and just fully commit to this very odd version of the Jets and the Sharks we got going on here.
  21. Fucking Fred would love the Sex Pistols and their nihilism. Team Sanity however prefers The Clash because we want our punk music to stand FOR something not just be against everything.
  22. We all need to come together and play football in tuxes to heal this rift!
  23. So out curiosity what's your Drop Dead Fred of the movies we have covered or a movie that we should cover! Mine is Spice World. I fully think it's crazy but it's a FUN crazy that they seemed to hate. I don't know if it's because I loved it so much as a child but I was really disappointed by how they saw the movie. Fun fact I had a Spice Girls birthday complete with Spice Girls cups, plates, napkins, WRAPPING PAPER... the whole works. I got Posh and Baby Spice barbies as a gift I seem to recall.
  24. There's usually an element of silly playfulness though. What's playful about making someone feel wanted and loved only to realize they aren't?
  25. I'm Team Sanity because I think Fred is a real individual separate from Elizabeth.I think that the invisible friends are real magical beings who are supposed to help children. I think he was trapped in the Jack in the box for years and couldn't move on to another child, which he eventually does. I also think think that Fred is an awful friend and a total asshole. I think he was somewhat helpful when Elizabeth was a child and he let her find an outlet for her rage and taught her the value of rebellion but I also think he endangered her and encouraged her to do things that she shouldn't simply for the thrill of destruction and chaos. as Elizabeth's adult friend he's fucking terrible. He hurts her physically and emotionally, hurts or tried to hurt those who she loves and who love her back ( Carrie Fisher and Mickey), tries to ruin new relationships with people she really likes ( Mickey), absolutely will not listen to her when she says no or asks him to stop , frankly I don't think that Fred would know consent if it smashed his head into a fridge door. I categorically do not approve of Charles. He's a useless, abusive, dull witted, boring fuckboy who most likely only fucks in missionary ( maybe he lets his partner on top of he's feeling spicy) who only thinks of himself and if he wasn't married probably would have his mom do his laundry because there's no way that entitled fuckwit has ever done anything of value in the home. Or anywhere for that matter. Guaranteed both Annabella and Elizabeth are faking their orgasms. I also agree that the mother is abusive. I don't think she's a good mother per say but having lived a similar experience I can say I understand her and I have a little empathy for her. Add for the nurse it's not uncommon to have to restrain a patient. I don't think that what she said was called for though. If Elizabeth was in need of that level of care she should have been in inpatient.
