Ha ha ha, guys.

I'm just saying, Monster Trucks is the best movie of this or any generation. Quite frankly, Citizen Kane can go fuck itself.

Not to interrupt but truthfully we don't put as much thought into nixing movies as you might believe. I work with Nate and Avaryl on finding movies that are better than just blandly bad. It's surprisingly how many current movies we have looked at that are just fine. I'd rather do something like The Apple or Ninja Terminator because they are just so different, they allow us to go in different directions from a conversation standpoint. That doesn't mean we ONLY exist in them. For example the next two films are wildly different and from the 2000s. . To me it's about creating variety and also making the film watching experience fun. My biggest issue about this show is when people complain about not wanting to watch a "bad movie" - that's the whole premise. Plus I will argue that these weird ones are really watchable. Hard Ticket is a classic, It's like TBS' version of The Room. All this being said, I love reading these opinions and please I just want you to understand the choices. Back in the beginning we wouldn't pre watch. Now I'd argue we toss away a ton after looking at them. As with anything it's a matter of taste. So you might not like Ninja Terminator but a lot of other people did. So hopefully we keep the roulette wheel of genre spinning and we try to connect genres or making interesting pairs week after week. Hence Chopping Mall and Hard Ticket. But I do want you to know we are afraid of current films. We just want to find ones that are fun to watch and yeah they aren't going to be good. I also hear the argument that The Face/Offs and Devils Advocates are fun. I love them too but they are a little harder to come by.

Re: Netflix - I know it's not technically free but a majority of people have Netflix and it's something where you don't have to pay per movie or even have cable. In my experience people are willing to take a chance on Netflix films because if you have it. It's just a click.

Also your monster truck arrgument is INSANE.

I also hear the argument about B movies. But it's fun to dip our toes in that pool too, especially with Horror.
Again just from a variety standpoint. Have faith that we can always keep you guessing and that we can go from Time Cop to Grease 2 to Ninja Terminator to Lake House.

In my defense, I love watching bad movies. I look forward to watching them every other week. I wouldn't be here if I didn't. But I do think there's a difference between a good-bad movie and a bad-bad movie. And, of course, that in itself is subjective. I'll give this movie a shot, too. I just find it boring when the discussion comes down to, "this untalented person who had no business making a movie made a bad movie." I like looking for the little logical errors in these movies. The little things that don't quite add up. But when the whole movie is one huge logical error...

And, again, this isn't a knock on the show or it's quality or anything like that. It's just that I like to talk about these movies with the friends that I've met on these boards. When the movie doesn't have much to offer beyond, "Wow, that sucked" it's kind of a bummer. And I get that my complaint is very Cameron H-centric. I apologize for that.

Well, I might as well get to this now. I'll be going on vacation soon for two weeks and not sure if I'll have access to internet or a computer so I bring to you a very special early edition of...

How Did This Get Named?

Hard Ticket to Hawaii is グラマー・エンジェル危機一発 (Guramaa Enjeru Kikiippatsu) or Glamor Angels Imminent Danger

Now this is weird things are a bit odd. See as some of you may or may not know Hard Ticket to Hawaii is the second Andy Sidaris film and actually a sequel to Malibu Express. You'd figure "Oh, when it came to Japan they called all those films Glamor Angels to play off Charlie's Angels." While the second part is probably true but this is the only film in the series to have a different title than the original English one. Now normally I would post a poster of the film but this one is the exact same as the American one. However, what I did find were two TV spots for the movie. Enjoy!



The part that needs to be highlighted is this shot which reads "Perverted snake come oooon!!"Posted Image

The second TV spot is rather dry and just explains the story of the movie but has this wonderful shot. After profiling each one of the girls by name and what makes them special it cuts to:
Posted Image

Which reads "Muscle Man B: (heart heart heart) with Eddie" and "Handsom Guy A: Donna's lover"

Loved the "Ferdy" meaning/explanation, but I just thought they called the character like that becaused he was a nerd and it rhymed with "Nerdy"

That part confused me. I thought the nerd guy was Ferdy not the woman.

Paul played the trailer for our next assignment and the voice over uses the line, "The tantalizing wetness of the blue Pacific". How pervy is that? I feel like the Pacific should file a restraining order against the scriptwriter and the voice actor who did the trailer. Maybe the director of the Chopping Mall had a hand in its creation....

I just discovered this podcast a month ago and I heart it so.
