    Episode 197 - Beastly: LIVE!

    If he truly learned then yes he helps his dad, as it emphasizes the son's growth while also showing the dad what kind of a prick he truly is. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the first time the dad sees himself in a mirror after being changed, and knowing what his son had to go through, just decides to put a gun in his mouth or jump out a window to save himself the torment he thinks he will suffer.

    Will he find Carol in HR?!

    Episode 197 - Beastly: LIVE!

    I about lost my mind when the opening song is just the word "vanity" over and over as he works out and then it cuts to building-sized ads featuring statuesque models. Let's not forget that in the book it's revealed that the housekeeper was actually Kendra in disguise the whole time, basically watching over Kyle to see if he was truly changing his ways. And the only reason that the book takes over two years is because Kendra saw him take a picture with Lindy at the dance and felt that was enough to warrant him getting a bigger chance at redemption. Also was Kendra just wearing wigs everywhere? In one scene she has the big blonde up-do with streaks in it, then it's a short bob that is jet black, and then what is meant to be the very next day she's back to long, blonde, and wavy.

    I now want a sequel to The Founder where Michael Keaton is involved with the logistics of mapping out that promotion for each franchise.

    Babes in Toyland (1986)

    It was a Christmas promotion that McDonald's ran for like a decade where they sold like some of the biggest hits for the year or year prior. You basically got a VHS, which were still pretty pricey at the time, for under ten bucks, with the purchase of a value meal. It's how I got copies of The Addams Family, Home Alone, and a few others that I can't remember off the top of my head. I was recently trying to explain this to a younger friend of mine and he just looked at me like that was the most insane promotion he had ever heard of.

    Episode 197 - Beastly: LIVE!

    Haven't listened to the episode yet so if this is covered in it, apologies. Apparently the book this was based on tries to go the Vampire Academy route of being tongue-in-cheek with covering the original stories it's based upon, by having the main character in a chatroom where he talks with others who have been transformed into creatures, making playful reference to the various references to all of the versions of Beauty and the Beast. Also, I have to assume that Neil Patrick Harris is making the same type of film choices as Samuel L. Jackson, who has admitted that he chooses a role based on wanting to do a movie like he liked to watch as a kid or likes to watch now, but in NPH's case, it's books he enjoyed reading to himself or his kids and hears that they're making an adaptation. Looking over his filmography there's Starship Troopers, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Beastly, Gone Girl, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and various DC animated films. And was there ever a reason as to why he was made to look like Matt Murdock with the Kingpin's walking stick?

    Does this just end up as a paradox?

    Episode 196 - The Meg: LIVE!

    How will Archer deal with the loss? Also, I haven't been on the thread for most of the week, so I have no idea what the fuck I just read through.

    Episode 196 - The Meg: LIVE!

    Yeah all three are on Prime now, and you really only need to watch 3 as it really plays up the camp factor and John Barrowman is fantastic in it. Each one sort of follows the same premise of a where some guy involved with the ocean starts to think there is something more to the rash of shark attacks while a muckity muck business man is trying to dissuade him. The first one the sharks are mutated I believe, and are somewhat featured in the second one, but that's about the only connection between those two. The third is a standalone film and is more a collage of fair use shark footage than it is an actual film, but god are the crazy parts worth watching the whole thing for.

    Episode 196 - The Meg: LIVE!

    Another thing i noticed when watching this movie was that it had numerous similarities to another film that needs to be covered by the show, Shark Attack 3: Megaladon. Both feature a hero who isn't believed about there being a maneating shark, there is a rich business owner who wants to either contain the Shark or bribes people to ignore the shark, a "shocking reveal" that there is a bigger, meaner megaladon, and an awkard romance between the two leads. If you haven't seen this film I highly recommend you do because it's free on Prime, which is maybe the best thing that can be said about that film.

    Episode 196 - The Meg: LIVE!

    I wouldn't expect the sharks to be inbred as they can live for-fucking-ever, so there would be little need to breed. If I recall from old Time Life animal books I read as a kid, fish could breed fairly quickly and in massive numbers, and we're only seeing a small portion of the lower sea floor, so there could be larger schools of fish that we aren't seeing, but with a shark as massive as the second Meg was, it is highly unlikely it would be surviving longer than a few years. Also, we need more shark movies, otherwise what will SyFy use to fight Dinocroc, Mega Python, or Tara Reid?

    Episode 196 - The Meg: LIVE!

    Correction: The Meg was killed by having it's stomach cut open by the wing of the sea go-kart, and then it being eaten by a school of other sharks. Something that Statham would not have any idea to do because that idea was shown to Wilson during his night hunt of the second Meg when they saw smaller sharks eating the corpse of what was revealed to be the whale. As for this movie, I have a few thoughts myself: I do wish it was R because it pulled back when the audience was wanting it to push further. basically every death was either an A-Team escape or cut away from super quickly. Ruby Rose's hair angered me for unknown reasons, from the spike/dreads to the undercarriage of it being aqua blue, it just seemed like they were trying to pander to some demographic but didn't know which one. I was furious at how angry everyone was at Statham for saving the majority of people he was tasked to, because 1 or 2 ended up dying. In the opening scene I was surprised that for the first time that I can recall, the left behind partners were actually begging for the lead character to wait and come save them, rather than telling him to leave them behind to save everyone else. Yet when Statham does his job, all of a sudden he's an asshole because he couldn't do the impossible. Even in the second instance when The Wall is telling everyone that Toshi sacrificed himself, the daughter basically calls him a murderer, despite her exacerbating the situation by being impatient. I'm still trying to figure out Wilson's business model for this venture, as it's revealed when he arrives that he has no idea what they were doing or that it cost him over a billion dollars. Yeah you can get some prestige in the scientific community by revealing your discovery, but that won't come near to covering the costs of the expeditions. If only they had said they thought there was a new energy source below the cold layer or that Wilson thought he could capture the Meg to put into a theme park, it would make more sense. Also, did anyone else expect the Meg to leap out of the water and pull down one of those helicopters?

    Episode 195.5 - Minisode 195.5

    With the spreadsheets I've done for the show I haven't covered this, mainly because I skim through the minisodes on the site, rather than straight downloading them. Hell I'm still trying to find time to finish the Jacob's Ladder Scenarios list I started a few months back, but with a massive group of projects at my jobs. that's taken a backseat.

    Sometimes you get the best news/discussion from the oddest places. I can say that for the past couple years I've been using Know Your Meme.com to get my news, because while it started as just a directory of various memes and their history, it's evolved into covering various news and major topics in a way that isn't slanted one way or another and is pretty well researched and sourced.

    Episode 195.5 - Minisode 195.5

    Yeah I think it's safe to say Jones' hamster wheel is spinning but the hamster is dead. Bringing back the Christian school I went to, they also had a similar problem with the NWO, which was huge when I was in the 3rd/4th grade because of that also being the supposed name for when the Antichrist takes shit over. I was kind of bummed that Swagger blew his big push because of how well it was working and riling up the crowds, similar to when Rob Van Dam was removed from being World Champ for also being pulled over and having weed on him. Also what did Jones have to say when Zeb Colter kept his group going but with Mexican wrestler Alberto Del Rio and Swede Cesaro?
