I would be all right with my theoretical girlfriend taking all of my candy; it could only make her sweeter, and also I lack self-control and always end up eating way too much in one sitting.

Really niche personal gripe: I wish HTTH had been a little bit more like the Dirty Pair comic/anime series in regards to the female leads. I wanted so much more for them. I have a lot of snake feelings for next week.

paul knows netflix isn't free right? every time a movie is available on there he says "it's free on netflix". netflix isn't free paul .. unless your sister told one of her friends your password.... then it's free for them. and when you say that's bad form and you're going to change the password but then your sister gets upset and pulls out the old "but she's my friend!" routine ... and then you tell her she's in her 30's and she can't use that line anymore but when it comes time to change the password it turns out that she CAN still use that line because baby sisters .. am i right???

i wonder who paul guilted into giving him their password??

Andy Sidaris seemed to, having seen most of his movies. I bought this set for five bucks and it's worth every penny because the first half of the movies are all glorious B-movies, which is what he wanted to make. The latter half are basically softcore pornos that star Penthouse Pets and pro wrestlers, but they still are acting with a straight face in plots that almost are switched around between characters depending on which film it is.

You guys promise this is going to be good, right? Because personally, I've been feeling very "do I have to?" lately about a lot of these picks.* There are still a ton of really fun bad movies out there that aren't complete garbage (cough The Core cough) Not everything needs to be 80's, B-movie detritus. (cough The 6th Day cough). Maybe something a little different is in order (sneeze Blank Check sniffle)? Who knows? Maybe it's just me (Ah-ah chooooo! Johnny Mnemonic)?

I really got to shake off this cold...

With Paul declaring the prospect of a Southland Tales episode all but dead, I think it's worth considering that the politics of bagging recent movies are a lot stickier. I don't think it's a coincidence that the recent era of movies was covered more thoroughly in the earlier episodes.

Yeah, I get that, and I'm sensitive to that, but none of the movies I coughed out are under a decade old - certainly xXx and Fate and the Furious are more recent. And while I know I specifically cited "80's" movies in my post, it's less about the era and more about the quality. To me, the movies they've been picking recently would be the equivalent of going to your kid's T-Ball game and heckling the players. There's just not a whole lot of challenge in it.

That's not to say there haven't been good movies lately. Timecop was amazing. But Ninja Terminator? Body Parts? This one? It used to be I'd get excited when a new HDTGM movie was announced, but lately it feels like my reaction has been more "what movie is that?" or "Ugh! Really?"

They don't have to offend anyone when they cover a movie. As anyone who follows me on Letterboxd knows, Monster Trucks is my favorite movie of the year. Tom Lennon is fantastic in it. The direction is pretty solid, but, hey, I still have questions. ;)

I just feel like, if things are done with the right intention and with good humor, no movie should be off the table.

Watching Hard ticket to Hawaii. While the movie is total shit, for some reason the aviation scenes are shockingly accurate. When they are inspecting the plane, doing the pre flight tests and radio call are all text book aviation. It seems the only part of the movie they paid attention to.

I get that, I mean my favorite HDTGM movies are the "almost good" or "popular but actually bad" movies like Face/Off, Demolition Man, Devil's Advocate, etc. But I definitely have enjoyed almost all of the trash movie episodes, too.

In Cameron H's defense, I watched the first ~30 minutes of Monster Trucks and it wasn't bad. Fun, even? But then my plane landed and the video feed stopped.

I have no qualms about the movie being fun! My confusion comes from the "favorite movie of the year" part lmao. THAT SEEMS STRAIGHT UP BONKERS TO ME!

I would expect Jim Wynorski angrier about being outed as a piece of garbage than about making fun of the movie.

Yeah, I hear you. It's not a knock on the episodes or the hosts, just the movies. Like, I like the occasional B Movie, but they feel more like a Rifftrax/MST3K thing than an HDTGM thing to me. With some exceptions, I find B Movies to be more fun to make fun of during than to discuss afterwards.

Ultimately, I like having good a good conversation with you guys and these types of movies don't promote much in the way of discussion. They just tend to be rather hollow. To me.
