  1. I believe that was a reference to Vanessa Kirby asking the guy who was supposed to watch her while the Rock was on the phone if he was new? I have the Fenty one because apparently I love to give money to Rihanna. It's good but I have very watery eyes my wing doesn't stay in place (since that is where I tear, around the corners). Otherwise fine. ... and I really wanted to see them together.
  2. Oh I wrote this in my notes, that shouldn't he be in the flashbacks of pretend heists. But I think the movie decided it was easier to forget he exists. But to Paul's question regarding the odd ages of the Shaw kids (going by the ages of the actors playing them), Deckard is 52, Owen is 40--so there were twelve years where Deckard got to be the apple of Helen Mirren's eye. I bet he was annoyed when Owen showed up. Hattie is 31. I know the kids in the flashbacks were meant to be Hattie and Deckard, but it would make more sense if they were Hattie and Owen.
  3. Yes this. I wanted more Helen Mirren. I want the next one to be Helen Mirren and Vanessa Kirby training the Rock's daughter to like kick ass, possibly because Hobbs and Shaw were kidnapped? I am spitballing here. But I know Helen Mirren can beat the shit out of people; I have seen Red. (Her and Brian Cox are the best part. Bruce Willis is useless.) @taylorannephoto and @tomspanks and I are going to have a spinoff called How Did This Get Made Up. (Also for the record I always refused to use Kat Von D's eyeliner because I disliked her and now I feel vindicated. I just got a Maybelline gel eyeliner that is supposed to be real good. Will keep you posted.)
  4. This is going to be a long post and I apologize. I actually stayed up to listen to the episode when it dropped last night and I took notes on the podcast, which I have never done before so I wouldn't forget. Will try to bullet point it. -- I am very glad Nicole was there to bring up Vanessa Kirby's eyeliner because it bugged me the ENTIRE movie. Now I've only recently gotten into makeup tutorials on YouTube (if you have free time check out the drama around Jacyln Hill's lipstick line launch. It's wild.) I cannot do a winged eyeliner to save my life; they always come off. So I was impressed that the eyeliner stayed on for THREE FUCKING DAYS. But what amused me the most was that she did put on more makeup in the brief scene where she had the wig on, and she had bright red lips. But that look all comes off... when the Rock snatches her wig off? Again, not a makeup expert, but I am pretty sure that's not how it works. -- The gang seemed confused about the virus and how it worked. I will take a guess. My understanding of it was that three capsules of the virus were inserted into her bloodstream, and after a certain amount of time they would release the virus. I don't think she should have been getting sicker, because if the virus was in her bloodstream at all, then she would die, I think. (And I was glad about that because I thought they were going to make her sick as a way to make her a damsel in distress.) As to who they they think would survive the virus, this is very rudimentary survival of the fittest nonsense. Even if the entire world is exposed, there will be a small percentage of humanity with natural immunity or who somehow survive the initial illness. (Some diseases have been said to kill up to 90% of a given population historically, but that's the highest I know of? Virulogists feel free to chime in. For reference, the "Black Death" killed about 30-60% of the population of Europe and Asia.) -- I did have a quibble with this movie and this is that I thought it went too long and should've ended in Ukraine. -- Did anyone else think the Rock holding the chain to the helicopter was an answer to Chris Evans flexing on the helicopter in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR? He was like, "I'm going to do that but I'm going to be on a car and there are going to be more people in the helicopter because I am stronger than Captain America." -- I was very excited to hear Tim ask a question, he hasn't been there in awhile and I was worried about him. So, yes Jason, he does get to ask as many questions as he wants. Show some respect. He's a recurring guest star. --Also, of course Helen Mirren fucks when she's older and could be Vanessa Kirby and Jason Statham's mom. Helen is hot. She could still get it. The title card just said "Samoa". It was shot in Hawaii though so it is neither. I thought this too! But what I read is that they wanted the end credit reveal to be that it was Keanu Reeves (as sort of mentioned in the episode) but the scheduling did not work out. I assumed they had to add that other post credits scene with Reynolds because of this, which is why it doesn't really connect that well. But I think it still COULD be Keanu in the next film, right? And, since Reynolds is basically playing Deadpool (the director David Lietch directed DEADPOOL 2) does that mean Keanu will basically be playing John Wick. If so, does Tick Tock Man have any cybernetic enhancements? I know there is something else I forget.

    Episode 219.5

    Don't forget about the coffee pot. That sounds life changing. Also it was good timing of this episode so we know Casey and June are still friends even after that DROP DEAD FRED record.

    Episode 219.5

    Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata's podcast had June and Casey on this week (still waiting for the ep with Paul and Jason) and it is very good and I highly recommend. You get to hear more about June's clowning.

    Episode 219.5

    Oh! And I totally forgot, now that the first leg of the tour is over, I would like to hear a “baggitry” update about Jason’s bags and June’s opinions thereof. Just wanted to put that out there.

    Episode 219.5

    2:22, Fateful Findings, and the Visitor. Oh i thought it was the one with Roberto Benini when I saw the poster. I haven't seen the JTT version but the donkeys in the Disney version scared me as a kid so I am not a Pinocchio fan. You're spot on about it being a commercial. I just learned today from Google that it was originally a commercial but it got too long and they, like ended up making it into a movie. I sort of wish they made the Larry Bird/Jordan McDonald's commercials into a movie. I did rewatch it like a year ago, and it is like watching a Looney Tunes cartoon, but I loved Tiny Toons and Animaniacs too so maybe I just liked that shit. Also I did go see Hobbs and Shaw today and I have a lot to say about Vanessa Kirby's eyeliner so get ready for that.

    Episode 219.5

    They announced some of the movies for the tour today. I am trying to figure out why I am so deeply upset about Space Jam being on there. I have concerns about three white people covering a movie that is beloved by urban audiences. I hope they have a person of color as the guest. Or at least someone who knows basketball? Like, intellectually I know it was not a great film. And I have no problem mocking the Looney Tunes or DeVito or the acting of the athletes. But, R. Kelly the notable exception, if you come for the soundtrack we are going to have a problem here.

    Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

    Did anyone go see it this weekend? Is it worth it? The live show is Aug 12, if I remember correctly so it could be the next film covered. (But I don’t know when the episode would air.) I am kind of on the fence. i tend to not love the Fast and Furious movies as much as the gang does but I do like the Rock and Statham best.

    Episode 219 - Drop Dead Fred: LIVE! (w/ Casey Wilson)

    I saw bits of this movie as a kid and I refuse to watch it now because it disturbed me so much. It seems the biggest demarcation between Team Sanity and Team Fred is if you believe Fred is part of the Phoebe Cates character or not. I would love to believe that he was part of Phoebe Cates, that would make it less creepy. I will say that as I kid I felt like he was a separate being and that he was trying to make her conform to his idea of what "fun" was. I get that June sees it as a woman acting out, and I agree that women are often punished for that so I can see how the Phoebe Cates character would be punished for it. But if that is the case, I wish Fred acted out in a more feminine way. Perhaps like a Melissa McCarthy character? Or the sexuality being more about vaginas than dicks.

    Episode 218.5 - Minisode 218.5

    I am concerned that actual Michael Bay is making so much money off troll Michael Bay. (Am I the only one who hopes he is making the DVDs himself illegally somehow? I suppose I shouldn’t promote that but it would make me feel better about how much our MB is spending on this bit.) I have never seen a Transformers film, and I don’t want Paul to give in. But... It could be funny if HDTGM covered one that wasn’t Revenge of the Fallen. Maybe?

    Serenity (2019)

    Paul, I would like you to take June to see this movie and then record her immediately after. Don't tell her anything beforehand. You're welcome for a brilliant podcast idea. Serenity has the Wackiest Ending of 2019 and We're Only a Month In.

    What to expect at live shows?

    I think if you have listened to live episodes then you pretty much know what happens. There is some video stuff first and then Tall Paul comes out to do some prep and starts the show. When it ends, they pose for pictures and such? It’s a live show with improvisers. Listen and yes and.

    Anyone said Seth didn't say, "My friend Paul says your mom is a lion too."

    Episode 217.5 - Minisode 217.5

    The caller whose in laws are sending her baby clothes? That shit is BONKERS and NOT OKAY. I do think it's a good idea to donate the clothes, because even if you do have a kid, you don't want to wrap him or her or it up in all that passive aggressive energy. But you got to tell them to cut that shit out. Or actually, have your significant other do it. They are his responsibility. That's not a thing. It's not okay. You don't have a baby, don't send baby clothes. I'd look into women's shelters in the area, they usually need stuff for small kids. NEVER STOP JUDGING SEA WORLD.

    The Haunted Mansion (2003)

    I think Paul would enjoy doing movies based on rides! And there is more than just the Country Bears (Though according to this it is the worst https://www.themeparktourist.com/features/20180408/33790/ride-screen-8-best-and-worst-disney-movies-based-rides) but what about HAUNTED MANSION? The ride scared me as a child and the movie frightened me in a different way as an adult. And id they do make a JUNGLE CRUISE movie starring the Rock, I will recommend that pro-actively.

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    Am I the only one ho thinks SPACE JAM was culturally relevant? I am on board with the dismissal of AVATAR. I don’t know if the remake will capture this, but there as this moment in the 90s where kids wore shirts and such Loony Tunes characters with baggy pants and backward caps. I think it started as parody, and then WB embraced it. Which is why it’s about basketball and the soundtrack is all rap and R&B. (I was very sad to delete the soundtrack from my iPod because of the R Kelly connection.) I don’t think it is the Looney Tunes that people really watch for? Like that is fine for kids, but older people like the music and the basketball?

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    Oh, also, regarding June’s question about dolphins “raping” humans. I don’t think we can really use the term rape. Dolphins ado have sex for pleasure and they are aggressive and form gangs. (Yeah, that’s right, dolphin gangs—it’s the next West Side Story). But... while I agree that dolphins are little shits that always have their dicks out, I don’t think they understand human notions of consent. If they did, that would make a crazy horror movie. Way scarier than Jaws. But, still, I never want to go to those “swim with dolphins” events. One of my coworkers showed me a family picture and we were laughing because it’s like a happy couple with a dolphin but the dolphin’s penis is clearly out. Animals are just being animals. People are stupid.

    Episode 216 - Serenity: LIVE! (w/ Nick Kroll)

    Wow I can't believe I have been calling John "Paul" all this time and no one corrected me. I sort of thought when the son showed up in the video game that it meant he was also dead? (I wasn't sure if he had killed himself or perhaps had been killed for his crimes?) I'll admit to checking out towards the end. Mostly my take away from this is that maybe I should take a vacation to Florida. And then I googled if it was filmed in Florida and it was not. It was filmed in Mauritius, and I was like, Oh I should go there. But it's kind of far and then I ended up looking in the Caribbean. Long story short, I went to Antigua in May.

    Huh. Maybe it is better to go in knowing the twist (is it a twist or a reveal?). Because I was like, when are they gonna get to the nonsense????? Hurry up!

    Episode 215.5 - Minisode 215.5

    Congratulations to Cameron for being back on top. I liked it when forum posters win and not those LOSER call-in people. I am excited for SERENITY. I feel a little responsible since I suggested it in the bad movie recommendation threads. I'll be curious to see what people who have never heard anything about it think is going on. I, unfortunately, only saw it after reading about it. So I was spoiled. IF anyone went in cold, I want to hear your thoughts.
