  1. It's a testament to how dull and non-engaging this film is that I saw it in the theater when it was released and remembered NONE of it. So much so, I couldn't remember the ending, and I assumed it was going to be revealed that DEX WAS THE VILLAIN. It would explain why he has such technical knowledge of not just machines, but seemingly of Totenkopf's base and his plan. And that would explain why he was kidnapped for seemingly no reason and not killed, and why he was able to escape so easily (seriously, they just show up and he's FINE!). Maybe he was Totenkopf's son working as a spy, always misdirecting Sky Captain as to the source of the robots. And that's another thing: The robots attacked the city and flew away, then Sky Captain says they have no idea where these robots are coming from. HE'S IN A PLANE. Why doesn't Sky Captain just FOLLOW THE ROBOTS?

    Episode 157 - Surf Ninjas: LIVE!

    "What did you say to them?" "You'll find out...on our wedding night." On their wedding night: "I want all four of your dicks in me."
  3. I enjoyed Stranger Things well enough while I was watching it, but I wish I had liked it more. I had too many problems with the acting of many of the main characters and frankly the writing, which I felt was full of plot contrivances and was way more concerned with invoking other sci-fi properties than making any of those elements cohesive or internally consistent or logical. That said, I want to own the score soundtrack as well.
  4. Thought this connection was too bizarre not to point out. Apparently PAUL HOGAN would regularly portray the Phantom in sketches on his variety show.

    EPISODE 124 - Hackers

    Not the biggest problem with the movie, but regarding the pool on the roof prank? He opens the door to reveal like twelve kids standing by the edge of the roof. They run over to him saying "Hold the door!" as it closes behind him. Here's an idea: stand by the door. Not fifty feet away. That way the next time an oblivious lunkhead bursts through at full bore you won't be caught by surprise.

    EPISODE 120 - Masters of the Universe

    Ignoring the fact that they're speaking English to begin with, at one point Skeletor says he is the Alpha and the Omega. So apparently some version of the Greek language exists in Eternia as well.

    EPISODE 114 — Runaway

    I'm not going through 11 pages of thread (much of which appears to be a Joker discussion), so forgive me if anything I say is redundant. It just absolutely kills me that this movie sets itself up with Ramsay, a cop whose specialty is to track down malfunctioning robots and deactivate them. Suddenly it comes to his attention that there's a man creating chips that alter robot programming to make them lethal weapons. So obviously, the plot of the movie from there on out is about this cop chasing a human who shoots heat-seeking bullets. Wait...what?! Even the title suggests this should be about him fighting robots, which it rarely is. "Runaway" is what they call malfunctioning robots, so why isn't the film about a malfunctioning robot? The movie even sets up that this could be the case. In the scene where Selleck is putting his son to bed, the son asks him if Lois could ever go crazy and hurt them. Selleck says no, but then has a moment where he eyes Lois suspiciously. I thought FOR SURE this was foreshadowing. Nope. I thought when Gene Simmons figured out where Selleck lived, he would FOR SURE put a killer chip inside Lois. Nope. No runaways here. And that's my next issue with the title. If the movie isn't about a robot that's malfunctioning, perhaps the title doesn't refer to a robot. Maybe "Runaway" refers to Ramsay. While he may not be a Runaway in the literal sense of being a malfunctioning robot, he is, in fact, malfunctioning and unable to perform his duties because of his fear of heights. At the end of the film, rather than fixing a broken machine, he has to fix his own broken psyche. RAMSAY is the Runaway.

    EPISODE 107 — Lake Placid: LIVE!

    Ooh! Also, this marks the second movie in the HDTGM catalog that features Mariska Hargitay in just a brief cameo; the second being THE LOVE GURU.

    EPISODE 107 — Lake Placid: LIVE!

    I want someone to cut together the footage of the bear growling at everyone with the audio of Sam Jackson's speech from DEEP BLUE SEA. How did no one mention that both of these movies had a dramatic scene of a "character" shouting at a group and then being suddenly and comically eaten by the monster from behind?

    Episode 102 — Tango & Cash

    The whole bullet thing in the opening scene with Stallone is strange, but I think the bigger question is: WHY DIDN'T THE GUYS IN THE TRUCK JUST RUN HIM OVER? They're barreling down on him while driving a big-rig tanker truck and he's just standing in the middle of the road. Run him over! Or maybe go around him? Instead, they slam on their brakes, which is stupid enough, but then the force of their stopping sends them BOTH through the windshield! If the driver is thrown from the cabin, wouldn't the truck keep moving since he's not there to apply the brake anymore? Do truck brakes work differently or something?

    Confession time. I had exactly one (surprisingly hard) laugh at this movie: When Emma Thompson is trying to encourage Arnold to do his Lamaze exercise in the back seat of the car and he screams "STOP BREATHING ON ME!"

    I was also happy and a little sad to see recently deceased comedian John Pinette who appeared in this film as the fat salesman at the big & tall store. He's also in the Dennis Rodman/Dane Cook action movie SIMON SEZ, which will probably be covered on this show at some point, as a comic relief monk. Such a funny guy. RIP Classic Pinette: Buffets https://www.youtube....h?v=vAkXPpBnSkM

    I think this goes towards explaining where exactly Devito implanted the baby. From what I understood of the movie, the egg was inserted into Arnold's abdomen just under the skin. I thought the idea was that thanks to the drug, this would be a supportive environment for the embryo just long enough for the effects to be observed. Kind of like how scientists in the real world have genetically engineered human ears by growing them on lab mice. What this doesn't explain however is how the fetus didn't rupture his skin as soon as it was as big as, say, a golf ball let alone an infant. But yes, I believe that was the significance of "Under My Skin" and yes it is gross and nonsensical.

    Episode 98 — LOL: LIVE!

    I also had several problems with the chicken scene. First of all, the dorky kid must have been thinking "Boy, the inside of that vagina is very well lit!" Second, the online chat doesn't really have a name, it just says you can chat anonymously. So why have a camera feed? Maybe you don't know the person's name and address, but I'd hardly call a basically face to face interaction "anonymous" except in the most literal sense. Is there some honor system on this website that you only film your chest and genitals? You're identity's protected so long as you don't tilt the camera up or sit back an inch or two? Third, speaking of names, the nerdy kid's screenname is "Don't Worry Boy" because his shirt says Don't Worry Be Happy. Assuming this isn't the first time he's been on the site, that means he has designated this shirt as his go-to online masturbation uniform. And now the blonde girl knows he wears it to school. Fourth, I don't understand what the girl was doing on the webcam. At first I thought they were introducing some dark subplot where she was getting money on the side doing webcam porn. Nope. Just tricking anonymous guys into thinking she was masturbating. Not even actually masturbating. WHY? Lastly, why would she be so horrified and humiliated when she discovered the guy on the web was nerdy kid? She didn't really masturbate to him or show him any actual part of her naked body. Is it because she now definitively knows he jerked off to her? I thought that was the point(?).
