Oh my god nooooo! It was literally just on cause I was deciding between that and Split to watch at the beginning of the month!!! (Obviously I went with Split cause I enjoy good movies)

Just watch Fifth Element but remove all the good aspects.

Seeing as we're heading to the new year, I had a small wishlist for episodes I wish they'd do.

The obligatory Mortal Kombat: Annihilation request.

Ready To Rumble:
David Arquette and Scott Caan become pro-wrestling managers for WCW wrestler, Jimmy KIng (Oliver Platt), in a movie that can't decide whether pro wrestling is a choreographed show, or a real fight.

Undefeatable:
You've all seen the infamous "Worst Fight Scene Ever" video on Youtube, well the full movie is even more batshit, Jason's gonna go crazy watching this. The robbery scene is worth the podcast alone



Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning
This movie is just fucking weird, the previous movie (Universal Soldier: Regeneration) is fucking outstanding for a straight-to-DVD action movie, then this came out, and I don't know why they did this.

The Kickboxer/Bloodsport Sequels
No need to focus on singular movies for these, as the sequels as a singular entity are batshit. Like with Kickboxer, they bring back Tong Po, with a different guy, with so much prosthetic make-up, he looks like a horribly botched botox operation, however, they also use archive footage of the first Kickboxer, and it becomes even more obvious. With Bloodsport, they have a new main actor in 2, and he stays until 4, but they change his character entirely in the last one.

Tactical Force:
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and Michael Jai White are members of an over-zealous SWAT team who are forced to go back into training. However, they're caught in the middle of rival gangs, and they have to fight their way out. The problem is... they're only armed with blanks! Even Steve Austin has said of his movie career "I starred in some real piece of shit movies".

Maximum Conviction:
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and Steven Segal have to escort two high priority prisoners, from one prison to another. That's all that's worth saying about it. Let's just say, one of the actors seemingly gave a shit about the movie, and it wasn't Steven Segal.

The Marine/12 Rounds:
These two are pretty much interchangeable. Someone who deserves much more than to play the villain in the movie (Robert Patrick and Aiden Gillen respectively) kidnaps John Cena's wife, and John Cena goes on the rampage to get them back.

The Chaperone:
Triple H plays an ex-con who is trying to rebuild his relationship with his estranged daughter (Ariel Winter), but gets dragged into one more heist by his former partner (Kevin Corrigan), however, he has a change of heart, and decides to join his daughter on a school field trip... however, the money that was stolen has ended up on the school bus!!

(Holy shit, WWE make bad movies! Doesn't need to be said really, but god damn)

When podcasts say they'll have live shows go behind the paywall I always completely understand - Jackie Kashian's The Dork Forest and James Bonding both exclusively put their live shows behind a paywall because that shit can get expensive and I wouldn't expect them to hand that out for free. But since half of the shows HDTGM does now are live it just seemed odd that they would have specifically put this one away.


That's pretty much how I felt. I don't expect to hear the CBB live ones but I expected the HDTGM one. Its not the end of the world, but I'm also too cheap to buy into another thing, so I'll never hear it. :)

I hear you. I used to listen to TONS of podcasts, and at the beginning of the year I tried valiantly to keep up, but now I'm down to only two that I make a point of listening to (even if I can't listen right away): HDTGM and The Adventure Zone.


I've gotten super lazy with mine. I have OffBook and HDTGM as my 'have to listen ASAP' ones, and CBB and Spont are ones I listen to at work, but I've gotten busier lately and behind on the episodes.

Should we start a thread for Valerian? Because I'm listening now with my free trial and I want to complain that Jason keeps saying Cara Delevingne is a good actress. I saw Suicide Squad. She is not. She's BEAUTIFUL. But she's been in like six movies? I don't think she's experienced enough. "Paper Towns" looked like shit too and I liked that book.

Paper Towns wasn't that bad but she's honestly in it for maybe a combined 15-20 minutes.

Also this reminds me that I got into a twitter argument with James Gunn cause he was going on about how people should get tons of experience in Hollywood if they want to land the kind of jobs they want (not entirely wrong) but I pointed out that a lot of famous actors and actresses hit it big pretty immediately and his entire fan base attacked me for daring to disagree with him lmao. I only mention it now because Cara is a perfect example of this. She's a gorgeous model but did she have anything that let people think she would have been a good actress? No because even IMDB lists that she had no formal acting training / coaching before she was cast in Anna Karenina but she was already getting big in the fashion industry and probably knew all the right people / had good auditions and boom now she's a famous actress. That's how that fuckin' town works.

I don't have kids but I work with them.

The Jon Klassen hat triology "I Want My Hat Back", "This Is Not My Hat", and "We Found a Hat" are all highly entertaining and almost as enjoyable for adults as kids. It may sound strange, but the first time I read "We Found a Hat" it made me tear up a little. The first two are funny, the last one is heart and message.

Love the Jon Klassen books. I'm a regular at my local library so I think we've run through just about every recommended kids book, but I'm always looking for more. Our adventures into the classics -- Make Way For Ducklings, The Little Engine that Could, etc. -- have been disappointing to say the least. Big exception for Dr. Seuss, whose work is unquestionably awesome.

I asked some of the kids this morning what books they like some of the choices were Animalia, The Bear in Underwear series, various Nick Sharratt books, Stuck, Hats for Sale, and Stone Soup.

Okay I'm watching Superman and I will lose my mind if Cryer's nutso car isn't discussed along with the fact that a strand of Superman's hair can hold up a 1000 pound weight but easily be cut by regular bolt cutters.

One of my favourites of last year was about foreclosing on the bank in a different way..

I'm so utterly pissed that Bridges got the Oscar nomination over Ben Foster who in my opinion stole the show in that film while Bridges just redid his Rooster Cogburn that he had been doing for the last few films. As for other Taylor Sheridan films, I would love to see Gil Birmingham get a Supporting Actor nod for Wind River as he did a fantastic job of a grieving father trying to work with outsiders in finding his child's killer.

One of my favorite things this year was to see how desperate IMDB was to create listicles on certain dates, usually for someone's birthday. The usual headline was "how X actor has changed/evolved over the years," which made it funnier when both Cara Delevingne and Sofia Boutella were the subject of those lists and I think between them they've made 20 films over the last 3-4 years when they started acting.
