    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    Unfortunately, from the scuttlebutt I’ve heard, next-gen consoles are going to eliminate discs completely

    LOL - No worries! I’ve written straight up novels on here

    I also appreciate a lot of Netflix’s original programming. While not everything works, it creates a lot of opportunities for filmmakers to do something a little different. There are a number of Netflix movies that are really good but probably wouldn’t find an audience under “normal” circumstances.

    That’s very true.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    Oh, I definitely used to group them by genre too However, that’s mostly because I kept my discs in binders and it was easier to be like “This binder is for Comedy” rather than “This binder is for movies J through M.” While I miss video stores, I can’t say I miss physical media. Even having tossed all the cases years ago, they just take up too much space - especially when I can just go into iTunes or Amazon and just pull up my list. I just don’t have the same emotional attachment to a disc that I do to, say, a book or a record. I’d rather make more room for those things rather than my Tango and Cash DVD

    Like Paul, I’ve pretty much purged almost all of my physical media, but I disagree with him putting Raiders of the Lost Ark in the “R’s.” While it might seem counter intuitive, because it’s a part of the Indiana Jones series, it should really be filed under “I.” Also, perhaps controversially, all Bond movies should be filed chronologically and under “B,” and Predator movies should be filed under “A” with the Alien series. Ultimately, it’s more important that a movie series remains intact than for your collection to be strictly alphabetized.

    The Philadelphia Story

    I’m about 20 minutes from the end of the episode so maybe they bring this up, but I think the reason Grant’s character doesn’t really have an arc is because his arc occurs off camera. During the course of the movie, we find out that one of the factors leading to their divorce was Haven’s drinking. He tells (I think Stewart) that he was in a rehab facility (sanitarium) for a few months to straighten himself out. He never drinks during the course of the movie. I feel like that’s what made Tracy drinking so significant. He sobered up and she loosened up. That way they were able to meet somewhere in the middle. (Also, If you two are going to write notes to each other in Sharpie during the episode, you have to at least tell us what you wrote )
  10. HDTGM All-star Chelsea Peretti (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) joins Paul, June, and Jason to discuss the 1993 Nicolas Cage film Deadfall. Recorded live in front of an unhinged audience at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, they talk about the other Deadfall film, deadfall definitions, Cage’s Tony Clifton inspired performance, cake, and so much more. Plus, they touch upon the sequel Arsenal, in which Nicolas Cage reprises his role as Eddie King.

  11. In defense of Vin Diesel (a sentence I never thought I’d write), from what I understand, it’s not that he demands to know what every “I am Groot” means, so much as James Gunn had a special script created for him to translate what he’s actually saying so he can give it the proper inflection. For example, when he’s dusted in Infinity War, according to the directors, his “I am Groot” was him crying out “father” (i.e. Rocket Raccoon)

    The Maltese Falcon

    Maybe I missed something (probably), but I never felt like the love plot in The Maltese Falcon was ever meant to be sincere. I just figured that they were just using each other to get what they wanted ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The Maltese Falcon

    For the record, there are quite a few movies on the AFI List the I would happily replace with Galaxy Quest.
  17. If you think I haven’t already Tweeted this movie to HDTGM, you’d be dead wrong. We watched:
