    Episode 212.5 - Minisode 212.5

    My mind was blown when it was revealed that “Michael Bay” seemingly lives in Parma, OH which is only about twenty minutes away from where I live. Maybe I should stop by their library and see which of their librarians is a big Transformers fan.
  2. I know I’m late to the party, but did anyone else think that the confusing “I’m FU” comment in one of the Second Opinion reviews was a Francis Underwood/House of Cards reference?
  3. So I came across this video interview that Jo Nesbo did before the movie came out and there are some stunning things said in it... First, Nesbo calls him Harry Hole, not Holy or any sort of accented version of the word. He said he was 'relieved' that Fassbender was cast as Harry, but other than Shame it doesn't really sounds like he has seen anything else he has done. He says he's a "bit worried it [the film franchise] might take over my universe" - I don't think he has anything to worry about there. He is in the movie (or at least he filmed a scene for the movie) where he is holding a 'dangerous' and 'forbidden' dog from Slovakia. WHAT?!? Aside from filming that scene he seemingly had no input on the film's production. Nesbo says it was important for the director to shoot the film in Norway, but Nesbo says they could have shot it anywhere because the character is more important than the place. He was really looking forward to the scenes shot in Bergen. - I'm guessing he ended up being massively disappointed. The video also shows a picture of the book cover which has a tagline that says "Beware the falling snow" which would have been a much better tagline for the film than any of the convoluted ones that Paul mentioned in the show.

    I’m almost positive there was a comment made in the show that indicated they recorded it on Halloween.

    Episode 206 - Little Italy

    I’m no immigration lawyer, but after visiting https://visas-immigration.service.gov.uk I am shockingly finding some problems with the setup to this movie. Jane Seymour tells Emma Roberts that she has to go back to Canada to get her visa changed from a student visa to a work visa. From what I could tell, it seems like this is a process that can actually be done online. But even if she did need to go back to get some personal documents, the one thing that I did see as a requirement to get a work visa is that you have to have a clear job offer. But Emma doesn’t have that yet. All she’s been told is that is in the running with the other guy and Jane Seymour will decide based on the menus they create. And given the WordPerfect menu that we see Emma creating, I’m guessing she wouldn’t have been chosen, which means this whole effort would be for nothing.

    Episode 206 - Little Italy

    Can we talk for a moment about the weekly 'fight' between the two fathers at Luigi's? They establish repeatedly in the film that Sal and Vince seemingly cannot stand the sight of each other anymore and yet they supposedly have arranged to both come into Luigi's at the same time every Monday so they can verbally abuse each other. Meanwhile, the rest of the bar bets on their fight with the 'loser' being determined by which of the two of them stands up first. As dumb as all of that is, in the one instance where we actually witness said fight, one of the two fathers stands up and the other stands up immediately in response. Luigi calls this a 'tie' but they did not get up at exactly the same time. But if you argue that they got up relatively close to one another to be considered a tie, then how would it not be a tie every time they do this? I cannot see many instances where one of them would get so incensed that they would rise out of their seat and the other would calmly remain seated.

    Is it me or when Paul was addressing the question about why they put Kim Basinger in the attic, he seemed to be acting as if they were in her house. They were at some random house that the cops were using at a hideout, right?
  8. The one thing that confused me was what exactly tipped off Ricky Martin Sr. that the cops were now suddenly after him and his family? Given that he had the tape in a safety deposit box, the recording had to have happened days before. The fact that he calls to warn his wife suggests he now knows there is an imminent threat, but it’s never made clear how he knows that. And thinking about that call he makes to his wife, why exactly is he calling the house? Shouldn’t she already be at school teaching her science biology class by the time he calls her?

    Was coming here to say the same thing. Seeing them made an already amazing show that much more forking great.
  10. Did anyone else find it odd that MJH blindfolds Dimps to start the drive when he’s unconscious from falling on the ice, but the moment she realizes he’s awake, she takes the blindfold off?
  11. I had a feeling this was shot in Canada as the sign at the general store said “No personal ‘cheques’”. But I don’t think this film is meant to take place in New York. When Dimps’ girlfriend goes to the police station, there is a sign indicating it is the Madison, Wisconsin police station. Speaking of the girlfriend, her efforts to find Dimps didn’t make much sense either. There seemed to be no sense of urgency on her part. There appears to be several hours that pass in between the time Dimps calls her and when she goes to the police station. Then the scenes where her and the cops interrogate the Indian diner guy and the waitress friend don’t yield much information, yet somehow they were able to find the exact cabin where he was. Even if the waitress friend knew the general area where MJH’s was going, there is no indication she knows what the exact address of the place is. Did the cops go barging in, guns ablazing to every single cabin near the lake until they found the right one?

    Episode 203 - Perfect Stranger: LIVE!

    At the beginning of the film, Ro has that exchange with the metal detector officer where she says her laptop is her ‘security blanket’ and the officer says something like ‘lucky security blanket’ in reply. Is the implication there that he feels the laptop is lucky because it gets to be in Halle Berry’s lap on a regular basis? Or did he mean something else? Also, you establish at the beginning of the film that Ro’s laptop has the ability to record and transmit people’s conversations. In the 600 endings that they wrote for this movie, why couldn’t they come up with one that had that technology come back into play in the end? How about this...instead of having the end reveal be the random neighbor witnessing Ro murder Miles, why not have the reveal be that Ro’s boss at the newspaper has heard the whole murder and confession through Ro’s laptop? You could even make it that he has been investigating Ro this whole time for her father’s murder and turfed her story on the gay politician to get her out of the office for a while.

    Episode 203 - Perfect Stranger: LIVE!

    OK, can we talk about Grace some more...first off, she is linked to a lot of guys in this movie. There’s Chuck, her boyfriend that she’s “been having problems with” (who lives in Philadelphia), there’s Cameron (aka CSI guy), we saw pictures of her with Miles on his computer, and then there’s Harrison Hill. Although, given that we know Miles posed as ‘adex’ for Ro, do we know for sure that Grace was actually talking to Harrison Hill or was she getting catfished from Miles? We also learn that Grace was pregnant. Do we want to speculate who the father is? Seems like this might require Maury Povich’s assistance. Given this film’s penchant for twists, I’m sure they would find a way to make Ro the father of the baby too. Also it was established early on that Ro and Grace were seemingly good friends and that it was CSI guy cheating on Ro with Grace that fractured the relationship. So was Grace blackmailing Ro her entire life or was that a recent development? Also wouldn’t Grace stealing Ro’s man be a better motive for killing her than the tacked on abusive murdered father storyline? Lastly, how exactly does Grace track down Ro at the beginning of the movie? She lives in Philadelphia and hasn’t seen Grace in a long time, but just happens to find her celebrating at a random bar in NYC one evening?

    Is it common for people in New York City apartments to leave a spare key for their apartment right outside their door? I found it odd and unsafe that both Ro and Miles had a key to their place easily accessible for anyone in the building to find.

    She thought he was 'adex' - as in advertising executive.
