Does anyone else remember when they performed 'Wild Wild West"at some MTV awards show and everyone abandoned poor Stevie Wonder on stage? I can't find any video proof of this, but I definitely remember it happening..

1) Ask Patton Oswalt to be a guest for this episode. He has hilarious stories that he has shared about this movie on his appearances on the A Special Thing podcast and the Nerdist podcast that your listeners will enjoy.

2) Consider playing the YouTube clip of Kevin Smith talking about working with Jon Peters to write a Superman movie. The origins of the giant spider are amazing!

There is so much nonsensical, impossible science in bad movies, you need to highlight the worst ideas in the movies you've covered. Just off the top of my head, Batman and Robin had Batman using satellites to unfreeze Gotham City. And they're all perfectly OK. Someone please explain to me how that works.

As usual there is no closed caption. Its been years since net flix said that it would be last year at the latest to have full closed caption.

Yeah it was hilarious. I think Siqo finally came out and got him.
And let's not forget that Will Smith did this movie instead of doing the Matrix movies. This was a bad movie even when I saw it as a kid from the motorized bike to giant spider and a legless Kenneth Brannah, all around terrible.

If you're able to get Smith, it would be a perfect reason to finally do "Southland Tales". We've talked it up quite a bit on the forum here, and I'm pretty convinced that you guys are afraid of it. I know he's buddy-buddy with Richard Kelly, so I don't know how much he'd be willing to knock on the film, but Smith was in it, and out of all the people involved with that trainwreck, he'd probably be one of the more interesting people to listen to. But yeah, the giant robot spider thing is SUCH a dead horse...

Omigod yes. Sticking a light in the back a dude's head to project the last image he saw is the craziest bunch of meshugas ever.
I just finished watching this and I can't wait for it to get the HDTGM treatment. There were some wildly uncomfortable sexual innuendo scenes between Will Smith and Kevin Kline that made me simultaneously eye roll and groan with disgust. But I think the WORST sexual innuendo has to be handed to Loveless for implying that he built a robot dick in order to bang ladies in place of the dick he lost with the rest of his bottom half (uh, how's that for worst science? keeping a man with half his body gone alive?). I just...I can't/won't.
I also chuckled pretty hard at the obvious green screen moments out in the desert. I too had a bunch of Burger King WWW franchise toys (the Jim West/Artemis sunglasses were wicked ugly, but I wore them anyway because hey, free sunglasses and also I was 12) and I definitely remember that I enjoyed all those BK meals far more than the actual movie.
P.S. Selma Hayek was terrible.

I suppose it gets points for the odd use of Bai Ling.
