  1. With 3,000+ recommendations in this forum, it can be difficult to find conversations with your fellow movie lovers/haters. Before you post, here are some guidelines to make it easier for everyone. Search for existing threads before starting a new one. Search for the longest word in the movie title. Common terms and words shorter than 4 letters are ignored by the search engine, so pick the longest/most unique word from the movie's title. Try searching via Google. For movies with multiple short words in the title, it's faster to use Google to search the forums. To find the movie The 6th Day, for example, try a custom Google query like: site:forum.earwolf.com "The 6th Day" If you're starting a new thread, make its title the movie name and release year only. Including extra words in the title will produce more unrelated search results, making it harder for others to find threads in the future. Keep it simple and use the format: Space Jam (1996) One movie per thread. The gang only reviews one movie per episode, so limit recommendations to one movie per thread. Feel free to create multiple threads! Don't link to unauthorized streaming copies of the movie. Paul usually points out where you can watch the next movie when it's announced on the minisode. Embedding trailers, clips, or film critique is acceptable (and encouraged!) but don't link to full movies.

    Episode 185 - Zeke Nicholson, Our Close Friend

    On a show like Hollywood Handbook that is totally rando, no topic is off-topic! P.S. I enabled support for emoji. But only one emoji, and it's

    Are you threatening other members? That's a violation of the Earwolf forum rules and grounds for banning, my dude. What do you say, greggy?

    Thank you, greggy. To honor your unwavering loyalty, I have promoted you to a higher rank than the rest of these peons.

    Episode 185 - Zeke Nicholson, Our Close Friend

    JEFFREYPARTIES hasn't been banned. The only reason he is unable to log in is because he's forgotten how. It's very sad. Nevertheless, he contacted me via Twitter and we'll hopefully have him back with his caregivers soon. P.S. Fatty2Dicks isn't JEFFREYPARTIES. Fatty2Dicks is Kevin O'Brien. And both of them can kick rocks.

    Ask Paul!

    Do you have questions for Paul Scheer about HDTGM, movie-related matters, or the gang's other projects? Ask them in this thread and Paul will answer them as his schedule and/or interest permits. Ground Rules No "When are you covering [MOVIE] on the show?" questions. Voice your support for a movie in the Bad Movie Recommendations forum instead. No "When are you inviting [GUEST] on the show?" questions. No "When are you coming to [CITY NEAR ME]?" questions. Follow @HDTGM on Twitter for live show announcements. No random silly questions like the ones Paul answers during HDTGM minisodes. There are dedicated threads for Qs and As on the HDGTM Facebook page. Don't be a jerk.
  7. The same question was posted to the Earwolf subreddit, and their best guess was one of the iron-on shirts from bando.com.

    Mr. Tompkins hasn't visited the forums in a while but, when he was previously asked about officiating a wedding for fans, he replied:

    Episode 160 - The Lake House: LIVE!

    EXT. TROPICAL JUNGLE - NIGHT The camera pans across a lush mountainous landscape, dotted with palm trees and lit only by a full moon. Without warning, a cataclysmic fireball erupts in the distance, shaking the trees and sending what appear to be giant birds scattering from their nests. The sound of the explosion fades into the roar of an overpowered engine as the camera swings around to a sports car tearing its way down a dirt path through the jungle. It screeches to a halt and DOMINIC "DOM" TORRETO throws open the passenger door. DOM Get in! Title card: THIS SUMMER The tires on Dom's car spin momentarily before finding traction and the car peels off. Half a beat later, a pair of enormous scaly legs crash into the frame. The camera pulls out to reveal a Tyrannosaurus Rex, which emits a bellowing roar and then continues its pursuit through the iconic gates of the Jurassic World theme park. Title card: JURASSIC AND FURIOUS

    Episode 160 - The Lake House: LIVE!

    First off, fuck deep dish pizza. Bert> I'm originally from the Chicagoland area and I don't know anyone who eats it. I've had it exactly once in my life. Much more popular is the Chicago thin/cracker crust, which has a sweeter, spicier sauce and is cut into squares. I grew up on Palermo's (when in the city) and Aurelio's (with branches both in the Chicago suburbs and southwest Florida, where we eventually relocated.)

    Episode 181 - Carl Tart, Our Close Friend

    Look, I'm not authorized to share this information, but turmoil in the podcast community has forced my hand. You know as well as I do that Hayes and Sean have a history of lining up their next project before abruptly ending a show. The Mikal Cronin episode was supposed to be the last Hollywood Handbook, but have been dragging their feet on finalizing contracts, so your beloved hosts have been forced to delay their plans for another few weeks. All I can tell you about the successor to Hollywood Handbook is that it will steamroll every other "cult hit" podcast, and I think you'll be pretty happy about its alphabetical placement…

    HOWL Premium, HOWL Originals, HOWL.FM

    According to this post from Shannon on Reddit, they're working on a way to let people automatically migrate from Howl to Stitcher Premium. Until that's ready, there's no harm in sticking with Howl.

    Episode 480 - Tooth of the Sea

    She co-hosts a podcast called Definitely Dying about illness and hypochondria that's worth checking out. They've had lots of CBB favorites (Will Hines, Betsy Sodaro, Pam Murphy, Mike Hanford, Nick Wiger, Paul Rust, etc.) as guests.
  17. Here's the first of the Mack Weldon videos Matt mentioned during one of these episodes! (I don't remember which.) https://youtu.be/KC3XubIiMHw You can watch part two .

    Episode 330 - Warlock Tinnitus

    Chartists need to check out today's With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus, a bonus episode of Whooch where Lauren plays Howard's twin sister Hannah. It is perfection.

    Musical Mondays-Week 8-Rent

    I was big into Belgians a decade ago but now their banana-y undertones make me gag for some reason. 512 Pecan Porter, on the other hand, has been on my list for a long time and I haven't found a local source (although I admittedly haven't tried very hard.)

    Musical Mondays-Week 8-Rent

    Coming soon to the HDGTM forums: "Tuesday Brewsdays", the secret bottle exchange/beer review group where people violate the off-week rules by discussing on BeerAdvocate. I'm the saison of my group.
  21. In a grievous oversight, Matt failed to include Paul F. Tompkins's Kong: Skull Island theme in this episode.
  22. They represent the Three Buttons: Flash forward, Flash back, and Meanwhile.
  23. Kristen leaves after the interview portion, but the improv is fantastic regardless. Blasooch keeps up her SPONT tradition of saying at least one thing so out of left field that Paul completely loses it.
