    Episode 040: For Our Eyes Mostly - Mailbag

    I think Matt (no, the other one) was too quick to dismiss being in a Bond movie where he would have to fly a plane. Sure, there are quite a few with planes. But the hardest part is the take-off and landing, and really, it's the landing that's the hardest part. But do we know Bond can actually land a plane? He's taken off a few times; mostly, he's fought henchmen and taken over the controls in the air. And then he flies off.... maybe he uses them to get back to MI6, but doesn't know how to land. So, thanks to parachutes, Bond returns for the next film, and there are a dozen planes sitting on the bottom of the Thames, right near MI6 HQ.

    Jem and The Holograms (2015)

    I definitely think this would be a good one for the show to tackle, not because it's such a bomb, but more that... it's not QUITE that bad? This movie could seriously split the panel a bit. It's based on an 80s cartoon that people vaguely remember and might feel a little nostalgia for simply because they remember it was there in their youth, even if they didn't really watch it. But Let's not do a plot anywhere close to the original series, we'll do our own things, with a few references. But one of those references is a super-advanced robot that is made part of the plot and no one really treats it as anything more than a slightly advanced iPhone? And tie the plot with a lot of the usual tropes and of course an evil business executive. However, it wasn't a cheap made movie... there was care in the visuals and the direction. The performances are fine.. there isn't a completely disengaged actor screwing up the scenes, there is some talent and effort there, too. And the few songs they did weren't bad... not my personal taste, but well performed and produced... they could have been covered by Katy Perry and actually been a hit or two. Plus, a chance to revisit Ryan "The Boy Next Door" Guzman, unless you want to add in one of the last couple "Step Up Movies" (the 4th one which was directed by the same director as this)

    Jimmy The Kid (1982)

    "Gang of bumbling crooks kidnap a bratty little kid, find out they got more than they bargained for." The kid? Garry Coleman, playing the neglected and very smart son of a rich superstar couple in LA. I was about 10-11 when it came on video and watched it EVERY SINGLE TIME it came on... sometimes 3 times a day. I found it hilarious... pretty sure it would not hold up. One thing that reinforces that idea is that right not it's not available, unless you're looking to drop about $80 on an old VHS, but perhaps one day it will be easily available and it could make it to the show.

    Fast Forward (1985)

    Second this one... was 13 or so, and my younger sister had gotten tickets from her school to see a preview screening of this one. Which was weird, as she was maybe 6th grade, and it was something she got through school... so were they thinking this was geared for the junior high crowd? Honestly, I enjoyed it... it may have been the first movie where me and my sister were dropped off to see, which was a big thing and worked towards my enjoyment. But definitely don't think it holds up, like many of the films I watched regularly (see "Jimmy the Kid")

    EPISODE 124 - Hackers

    Angelina's fashion choice was clear - she's a hacker/nerd, so naturally, she'd cosplay as T'Pol from Star Trek: Enterprise a good decade before the show is even created.

    EPISODE 106 — Deep Blue Sea: LIVE!

    Recasting? It is so obvious that the Chef always should have been played by Kool Moe Dee. He was perfectly prepared for the action scenes (https://youtu.be/agnKPLrG2E0?t=1m41s), but when it comes to the original rap rivalry, Moe Dee was King!

    Episode 102 — Tango & Cash

    Oh, the drag shot. So surprised you missed it and seemed like it was out of the blue. Perhaps you are forgetting the classic (no, seriously, I love this movie), Nighthawks, which features Stallone in drag twice. http://media.giphy.com/media/1q7hzWrW5fyla/giphy.gif http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-85M2wuJ3QQQ/ThhebwjOe2I/AAAAAAAABKQ/WF2PjU32fGE/s1600/Nighthawks-2.JPG And, for one of the minds behind ArSheerio, it should be noted when they were on Arsenio plugging the movie, they did dueling "drag" clips, including one of Arsenio... perhaps future fodder.

    Grease 2 (1982)

    It's buried in the forum, originally recommended years ago, but it really should be reconsidered. Here are a few points: - rip off of a "classic" musical - Very early Michelle Pfeiffer, opposite Adrien Zmed and Max Cauffield. - The Double Mint Twins (a.k.a. Gemma from Sons of Anarchy's sisters) - Liza MInelli's sister - Production so seemingly rushed, not even the professional dancers are in sync. - "We're Gonna Bo-o-owl Tonight!"
