    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    One thing that came up at the live show that there was only a brief mention of in the actual edited podcast: One couple in the audience brought a baby that, according to them, was only 20 days old.

    HDTGM Drinking Game

    I think this is what I'm thinking of, plus the times when Paul gives a wildly formal introduction of June like the podcast is the only time he ever sees her.

    HDTGM Drinking Game

    Sip: June can't even with this movie. -Regular show members pretend to quarrel about their personal lives. -Episode title says "LIVE!" in all caps with an exclamation point like it doesn't describe 9/10 of the episodes they do now. -Paul watched this movie on a plane. Sip again if he tells a funny story about what the other passengers might think about the movie or scene they were watching. Drink: Team Fred vs. Team Sanity is brought up -Someone has an excuse for not watching at least one scene of a movie -A movie the show did over a year ago is referenced. -Clip played makes no sense if you're not in the live audience (has little to no dialogue, etc.). -June's childhood memories of a movie bias her towards liking it. CHUG: Guest has no idea that Paul and June are married. -Guest screwed up something really basic like watching the wrong move or "fell asleep" for the whole thing. (Also, props to any guest who watched the wrong one and then did the right one as well). -A sponsor is mentioned outside of the ad segments. -A joke from a specific episode more than a year ago is referenced (i.e. "GEOSTORM!," "Putterinabra!")

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    Finally caught up this far in the thread. Yeah, speaking as a serious head trauma survivor, he's going to have some serious problems in the short term that Julia will have to help take care of. In the long term he's probably at least going to have some low-level memory problems for the rest of his life, and that's if he's very lucky. And like I said, his eyewitness testimony is pretty much the only thing keeping Julia out of jail (see The_Triple_Lindy's post), but he magically remembers everything from 10 minutes before his injury, which I can't say that I could do. But with all the plot holes and bad writing in this movie (I may have to make an entire separate post on the terrible police work), I can't expect them to know anything about the medical realities of brain injuries. this particular type of sloppy writing is sadly so common that it has two TV Tropes pages: Tap on the Head and Hard Head. Interesting side note: There's about a 1 in 3 chance that I was listening to an archived HDTGM episode at the time of my accident. If that's the case, somehow figuring out which one it was would help me reconstruct what happened, because finding details has helped me remember other things that were happening around the same time.

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    I was at the live show. Didn’t get called on, but I wanted to contribute this: As someone who’s survived a serious head trauma, there is no way that David rememberers much at all from that evening, particularly that Tessa really was guilty of everything and how she got stabbed. What I went through was probably worse, but I have no memory of about an hour before and about five days after. David having a head injury means that Julia is totally without an eyewitness, and the absurdly-skeptical police who have never even heard of a fake Facebook profile will probably think she was guilty of everything.

    Lawrence of Arabia

    While listening to the tiny bit of the episode I've heard so far, it occurred to me that raising the bar as to what's considered "American" above its current level of "virtually anything even tangentially connected to America" would make narrowing it down to only 100 films easier and also free up more room for films that should be on the list. And maybe then we can even have room for more than 3 or 4 films made after 1970.

    Upcoming Episodes

    It's almost a given that Star Wars will be done around the time that The Rise of Skywalker comes out.

    Random thing: I haven't called into the voicemail yet because I usually either skipped an episode about something I didn't watch and missed the one for next week, or I listened to the new episode too late to call in. But this time I can't call in because I've already seen Lawrence of Arabia and know exactly what it's about. *Kicks dirt*

    Probably even more of it. B-movies were much more of a thing back in the day. I think I remember hearing something about every feature film getting paired with a B-movie, along with the newsreel and such. Paul and Amy have a case of what experts call Survivorship Bias if they really believe that.

    Afterthought: Whether you go with physical media or streaming may hinge mainly on if you ever watch your movies on a tablet computer or not.

    Ninja Assassin (2009)

    I saw this movie in the theater and basically remember two things: 1. The review of it that said “If you think you might watch a movie named ‘Ninja Assassin,’ then this movie is for you” being absolutely dead-on. 2. A male friend who loved it on a stupid action level joking that it was perfect other than the ~2 minutes of romance scenes.

    Jacob's Ladder (2019)

    I called it an “old” running joke, and they immediately brought it back in the newest episode.

    Movie 43 (2013)

    I heard that there’s different “framing stories” for different international audiences. Some other saw something about three or four friends trying to find a certain mythical video online, and the sketches are the videos we’re seeing.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I would say C. Filing it under K reminds me of this humor columnist in the local (Charlotte) paper who would do bits like “It’s time for another entry in the Clip-n-Save (column name) encyclopedia. Today we’re talking about Southern food. File it under “C” for “Cholesterol.” Then one day he revealed that he learned several readers actually were clipping, saving, and filing them.
