I haven't seen the finale (those were some risky spoiler clicks), but I totally love that it's just a one-shot. Shows usually don't know when to give up, and I appreciate a brief, awesome story.

I still need to watch the finale, but I had scanned the Wikipedia article on the book when my last Audible credit came up, I was debating if I wanted to get the book or not (I didn't, I still may)

someone in the Explanation Hope asked how Paul felt about people talking/ heckling in the theater.

I agree with this & what Scheer said... sometimes it is OK if it's genuine and/or actually funny.


Thank you for the info... I'm trying to recall a pleasant heckling moment in the theater... I'll post it when I do, but the worst was a guy at the seat beside me ( who when I arrived was in my seat ) during Deadpool who, much like a parrot, repeated/yelled back every punchline that Deadpool said during the entie running time and then laughed obnoxiously all in my right ear. And to make matters worse, during the extra scene after the credits another dude happilly recognized the Ferris Buller refference but couldn't quite remember the name and the guy besideme rudely yelled: "Shut Up!" when he was talking loudly during the whole thing... :(

At the risk of saying something unpopular, I'm just going to put this out there.

The log line for this podcast is 'Have you ever seen a movie that's so bad that it's amazing?' I can totally understand why 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise got into the rotation years ago, because earlier on it was teetering on the edge of 'bad but amazing' territory. But more recently, the franchise has started to take itself way more seriously, and is all about creating product that would be more properly described as 'great and amazing', with the budgets, casts, and effects bigger than perhaps any other franchise in history. There are a LOT of 'Fast and Furious' fans in this forum, and I think you're all great. I have NO problem with these movies as such, but it gets to the point where this doesn't really fit into the tone of the podcast, aside from the fact that the hosts are fans of the series.

Because, when we ask the simple question: 'Fate of the Furious': How did this get made?

We have a simple answer: it got made because the previous several movies in the series are smash hits that made a billion dollars each.

And while that's great, it's not really the point of this podcast, is it? I thought it was about watching lousy movies and making fun of their inconsistencies (see: 'The Lake House') and not so much about watching popular movies and discussing how great they were. There's plenty of other podcasts out there for that.

Anyway, that's what I think. This should in no way be read as an anti-'Fate of the Furious' post, but I know I have no interest in spending fifteen bucks to see it just to participate in forum. I just don't see how these movies fit in to the mission statement of the podcast anymore. Dissent: go!

I think there are rare exceptions where the hosts revel in the trashiness of these movies. Face/Off and Con Air are great examples. The Sharknado series is another. And these are the others.

The "How did this get made?" question is rhetorical, but generally, the point of the podcast is to talk about trashy movies. I love the F&F movies, but my love for them is rooted in their trashiness. So I do think they fit, and I enjoy hearing the hosts really enjoy a movie every now and then.

I would disagree that they are trying to make "great and amazing" movies. I think they are really trying to make more and more over the top movies, and they are succeeding in that effort.

Everyone comes to the podcast for different reasons, and personally, I'd rather watch this than sit through Runaway or Sleepwalkers again. But this is more my kind of "bad" movie. And others might be more inclined to watch Gene Simmons and His Killer Robots. And I think the hosts know they have a wide variety of fans that enjoy the podcast for different reasons.

(And you shouldn't pay for it to participate in the discussion; you should pay for it because it's a fun as shit movie...or don't. I'm not the boss of you.)

ETA: No, but for real now, I'm going back to work :)

I don't really have a problem with them as far as fitting the theme of the show, but I do feel like they've run their course. I feel the same way I do about Fate and the Furious as I do about them doing another Sharknado movie (i.e. a dead horse that's taken enough of a beating). There are so many awesome (bad) movies out there to be done, that rehashing the same thing for the fourth time just seems kind of boring.

My only big complaint is I wish they would at least wait to do new movies until they are available to rent/buy. I just can't make it to the theaters all that often, like maybe once or twice a year. So when I do get a chance to go, I want to go for something I'm really going to enjoy and not just "isn't it cool that they're driving on ice."

However, I recognize that their Fast & Furious episodes are fan favorites. I'll happily step aside, enjoy the episode, and let others have their macho car fun while I'm over at Musical Mondays talking about Zac Efron's amazing hair.

I meant to mention that, too, because I think Paul said during the xXx episode that they were wanting to do new movies more often because they had a lot of fans asking for it. I don't know how much pressure they got for it, but I do remember there being a post complaining that they weren't doing Furious 7 pretty much every time Paul announced a movie starting in April 2015 until they finally did it in September (confession: I probably made more than one of said posts).

So I think it's a lot of balancing for them. I know not every movie is for me, and I find that I still enjoy episodes like Body Parts even when I skip the movie because I know I won't enjoy it. I think there are generally about 3-4 per year where I'm just like, "I'll pass" (sometimes because the movie doesn't seem like something I'll like, and sometimes because I just get busy and never get around to watching it). And you're definitely right that Musical Monday helps that week go by a bit more easily!

ETA: Maybe I should just give up on the whole work thing.....

My favourite 'talking in a cinema' moment was after Synecdoche, New York, which is totally self-indulgent and unnecessarily complicated but also pretty fun for the most part. But after the final moment, the soundtrack goes silent, and on the screen says 'Written and Directed by Charlie Kaufman', and in that moment of silence, a woman two rows in front of me - she must have been in her seventies - turned to her friend and said, very loudly,

Perfect.

I had the exact same thing happen after seeing Swiss Army Man.

He was on the "lost" Smurfs episode. And he's also been on for After Earth, Deep Blue Sea (one of my top 3 all-time favorite episodes, btw), and Lake Placid.

As the Forum Historian, I can tell you it was Deep Blue Sea. You had made a comment about the 8 foot fence. It's the top comment on maybe the 2nd or 3rd page.

Don't ask me how I remember that...


(Also, it's good to hear from you! :) )



ETA: I just double checked myself. It's on the 3rd page, SECOND comment! You had the top two comments on that page though, sooooo...still pretty impressive, no?
