    Canceled LA Show

    Are you THE Treat Williams??
  2. What if James Brolin's commitment to the cause was such that he was inhabiting the role of Bo Derek at all times in 1979 to fulfil his mission? So he would have filmed "10" with Dudley Moore as Bo Derek as part of his cover. In fact, what if he *created* the character of Bo Derek solely for his Disguisey missions, including marrying filmmaker John Derek and building an acting and modelling career? What if there was NO BO DEREK, and it was always James Brolin all along?
  3. If that's the case he could have done a lot worse than Jennifer Esposito

    92nd Academy Awards Nominations

    Yeah but only two movies were made last year that were directed by women, right?
  5. What kind of idiot wins the world wrestling championship against their will?? If they did that to me, not only would I gratefully accept, I'd defend my goddamn title.

    Minisode 230.5

    I'd like someone to undertake a project where every film starring Dana Carvey is remade starring David Spade. And vice versa

    Listening to this episode is blowing my flipping mind.

    Episode 230 - Fateful Findings: LIVE! (w/ Rob Huebel)

    There’s a few shows in a row now where they’ve chosen a film I’ve simply never heard of. My bad movie radar obviously needs an upgrade.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    Obviously too late for the minisode and the very constructive posts by fellow users about the wider issue of sexual harassment and assault. However, I read an interesting piece of trivia on IMDB that this was one of three major cinema releases in the early 90s to deal with the topic of sexual harassment. This one, which was about a woman being the harasser, Gross Misconduct which was about a woman falsifying a complaint, and Mamet's Oleanna which sort of showed both parties' sides of the story. I think if people tried to get their information about the issue in real life from how it's portrayed in these films, they might get the wrong idea.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    One of my very few claims to fame is that I appeared on L!ve TV performing stand-up comedy, which was broadcast straight after the topless darts. My act had to be cleared by Legal before it could be broadcast.

    Ken Russell's baffling, obscene, startlingly excessive, crazy crazy attempt to mash up classical music with his Rock Opera approach to Tommy. It's been mentioned in passing but never given a full recommendation. This article is just a tiny sample of the madness the film contains: https://www.theguardian.com/film/filmblog/2013/feb/06/lisztomania-most-embarrassing-historical-film For those who thought Zardoz was not quite bonkers enough.

    Jewel of The Nile (1985)

    This needs a pod. They must have HURTLED into production of a sequel. Lewis Teague shows everyone what a good job Zemeckis did on the first one by doing an absolutely appalling job of this film. The music is like something from a low end 1980s arcade game. The special effects are dreadful. And apparently Sufi Muslims are magic druids?

    I would say Demolition Man. I think it's a legitimately entertaining film, and a lot of its satirical and comedic stuff lands pretty well. The central idea of the violent angry male archetypes 9f yesterday being a shock to the system of future society has pretty much come true.
