    The Shawshank Redemption

    I have been well. I went from withdrawing from forums and the like because I was miserable at my job to not having any time to participate in forums because of starting a new, much more fulfilling job at the end of 2017. I hope you've been doing well and glad to see they've put you in charge of the Unspooled discussions.

    Episode 194 - Yes, Giorgio: LIVE!

    I think there is something to the "this was all a plan to get him to sing at The Met" theory. After Giorgio loses his voice and will not let Pamela look at him, Henry (his manager) tells him a story about another Italian opera singer that refused to let a German doctor look at his throat, but in the time it took to find an Italian doctor it was too late, the singer had lost his voice. Then later in the film it's his idea to get Pamela to convince him to sing at the Met. Henry is clearly not above manipulating Giorgio into doing what he wants. Pamela is clearly uninterested in Giorgio, she even has her suspicion confirmed that he tells everyone that a specific aria is for them and being a top notch surgeon unimpressed by his show of wealth but for some unknown reason decides to chase him across the country. I think that Henry convinces Pamela to charm him just long enough to convince him to sing in the Met. He flies her out to San Francisco and she gives the weak cover that she "drove" all the way out there, spends a "romantic" week (when she is talking to her creepy coworker she says sarcastically "it was the most exciting and romantic week I've ever had") and does fall for him. Then the moment that he proves he can sing at the Met and has overcome his fear and her task is over she doesn't even wait for the performance to end and bounces. I admit that the theory has a lot of holes and needs some work, but it makes a lot more sense than the plot as it is presented.

    Why does Pamela have to say "oh, this is the maid" to his wife and why do they come up with the convoluted niece cover when "This is my throat doctor" explanation would be perfectly acceptable for an Opera singer?

    The Shawshank Redemption

    So I just wanted to pop my head up to say that I have had the same criticism of it as Amy, that I thought it would have taken more guts as a storyteller to tell the story of a guilty man, but made you sympathetic to his plight. Having him be innocent all along just seems like too easy of a way out. Also, about 10 years ago there was a meme of remixing the Opera scene with Andy playing other songs for the prisoners (Phil Colins, Iron Maiden, etc,). This one is my favorite:

    Cherry 2000 (1987)

    I watched this movie last week and it has to be done. It's basically one man's quest to find a replacement sex bot interrupted by human connection. This movie has Jason written all over it.

    Episode 170.5 - Minisode 170.5

    Coming out of hiding to say "WOO HOO" to Miami Connection. If you want to see it and not buy it I think it's up on PopcornFlix, which is available on Roku and Playstation 3 (and I think 4 and I think at least XBOX360. I haven't had any time to play games so I have older consoles that are operating as media streamers)

    Blank Check (1994)

    They need to do this for the child/adult romance angle alone, it would have paired nicely with Sleepwalkers

    Miami Connection (1987)

    I got a mass email from the distributor of Miami Connection that I thought would be of interest to fans of MC:

    This is perfect, now I wish I could more HDTGM movies slightly sped up.

    EPISODE 114 — Runaway

    Someone pointed me to this scathing clip of Paul Stanley reading from his audio book where he says that Gene traded some backup vocals from a movie producer's children for a role in a movie and that he saw one of Gene's movie and it was "embarrassing" (about 14 minutes in). I'm just assuming that this all applies to Runaway. I thought some of you might find it interesting.

    Episode 150 - Grease 2

    Yeah, they really pushed it

    Episode 150 - Grease 2

    As much as I hated Grease 2, I loved June's enthusiasm for it. Some of my favorite episodes have been when one of the core HDTGMers enjoys the film in spite of its shittiness.

    Episode 149.5 - Minisode 149.5

    I suspect that a lot the hate is from people who don't usually like musicals (such as myself). If you like musicals you might be more inclined to enjoy Grease 2 in a fun bad way.

    I hope they pick some good ones for you in Austin. Are there any Austin based bad movies that you know of?
