    Supergirl (1984)

    Nathan Rabin did this one on his column, and it sounds far worse than I (or he) expected: https://www.nathanrabin.com/happy-place/2019/3/13/my-world-of-flops-case-file-115my-year-of-flops-ii-12-supergirl
  2. Came here to say that I looked it up, and Charlotte’s African ancestry is basically a rumor, as you can read here. While on Wikipedia, I looked up the other thing that I was dying to know, and the answer is yes, she is the Charlotte that the city in North Carolina is named for.

    Your Updated AFI List

    I ran into this article on Wired about how ridiculously well The Social Network has aged, possibly more so than anyone could have predicted, and remembered this thread.

    Request: Cover the Sight & Sound 50 Next?

    Hmm, are there any well-recognized lists that aren’t limited to being from one country? Or is the BFI list not done in the AFI’s “Any movie even arguably from our country” standard?

    Sex and the City 2 (2010)

    (Spoiler for a terrible movie) Someone, I wanna say The Editing Room, said that the ending to this movie was basically “Wow, American and Middle Eastern women aren’t so different after all! They’re both shallow and materialistic!”

    Waterworld (1995)

    Apparently there’s going to be a new DVD version of it coming out that’s a full 40 minutes longer: https://www.slashfilm.com/waterworld-blu-ray/?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=link&ICID=ref_fark

    Waterworld (1995)

    I just want to say that several Universal Studios theme parks still do a live “Waterworld set” show, and apparently it’s quite good. Thing is, as i’ve said elsewhere on this forum, the in-park ads for it on the loudspeakers advertise it as being from “the hit movie” as if everyone didn’t know it wasn’t a notorious flop. Guess they’re in deep denial or something.

    Big Ass Spider (2013)

    Was messing around with Siri and got her to search for “Ass, the movie,” half thinking of Idiocracy. This ine came up in the results and I had to check and make sure that it had been suggested, entirely because of the title.

    The Peanut Butter Solution (1985)

    Doing this 80s movie would also help to counterbalance all the brand-new stuff they’ve done lately. An average year has maybe one movie made that year in it, and the past six months had about six of them.

    Episode 206.5 - Minisode 206.5

    I’m sort of disappointed that Corrections & Omissions didn’t mention the first thing that the forums said about the episode: that the “Moron sandwich” joke, the only one in the movie that they really liked, was stolen from Hell’s Kitchen.

    Supergirl (1984)

    Don’t think they ever did Man of Steel.

    Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation (1986)

    I think I saw this at some point, because I definitely remember Dark Heart. Was this the only Care Bears movie with him in it, or were there others? Also, my sister’s obsession with the Care Bears lead to her going through a phase of always answering the question of “Do you care if I... (eat this last cookie, borrow your toy, etc.) with a “YES!” because she wanted to be a Care Bear, and they care about everything.

    Foodfight! (2012)

    They need to do this movie, and it sounds like the perfect time to finally have Nathan Rabin on the show.

    Airplane vs. Volcano (2014)

    Just...that title! Surely even the title makes it a good choice! People will be more likely to listen just because the title of the film caught their attention while they were browsing through their podcasts.

    Which Movies Does HDTGM Absolutely Need To Review?

    Somehow it never occurred to me they might be avoiding a few obvious “bad movie classics” like Manos for this reason. Even glancing over the complete HDTGM list, the only movie I can think of that both have done is Mac and Me, and that one was done by the podcast waaaayyy before MST3K. They’ve also done a lot of movies that MST3K spinoffs, like Rifftrax, have done. It’s always been weird to me that 200+ episodes in, they’ve done several of the classics, like The Room, Birdemic, and The Star Wars Holiday Special, but have still left several others on the table, like Plan 9 from Outer Space, Manos, and Troll 2. Also, they need to do all three of those ones I just named.
