  2. (I wanted this to be even longer but figured if it couldn't fit in the "Topic Title," it was probably too long?)

    EPISODE 117 - Theodore Rex: LIVE!

    I totally get what Paul was going for with "Hummy Man," and I came to the same conclusion as you - that it should have been a play on Homo Sapiens instead of human - but, following the conventions of this movie, I think the actual analogue would be something more like Hubert Sapiens or Howard Sapiens (edit: or Homer Sapiens), since they're playing on the "T" in "T-Rex." Really though, nobody ever uses the phrase "H. Sapiens," so maybe there is no exact analogue...

    Phantasm (1979)

    I agree, there are definitely some redeeming qualities and some very memorable scenes. There are just so many "WTF!!!!" moments that it ends up feeling really random, overall. Which, again, to me means it is a great HDTGM candidate!
  5. The movie Phantasm would make a GREAT (seriously, great) HDTGM episode. In fact, I can think of no other movie that I've seen that fits the criteria for a good HDTGM show better than this movie. (spoilers below) Not only is the plot totally nonsensical and random, with LOTS and lots of WTF!!! moments, but the acting and dialogue are also terrible. For example, one exchange: Mike: I know you're not going to believe this, but these things were here, right in the garage, and they were going to get me! Jody: Aww, give me a break, would you? Mike: They were jumping on the car and making these weird sounds! Jody: You're sure it wasn't that retarded kid, Timmy, up the street? Additional ridiculous elements: a pony-tailed ice-cream man named Reggie, a planet filled with dwarf zombies, a creepy "Tall Man" who can turn into a woman for no apparent reason, a McGuyver-style bomb used to break through a paper-thin bedroom door, instead of trying to kill the Tall Man they trap him in an abandoned mine shaft, and a final plot twist (it was all a dream!) that is totally, 100% unnecessary. Plus, there's the cult-infamous “sphere-killing" scene! Imagine a very poorly made chrome juicer flying through the air, drilling into some poor guys face and shooting a stream of blood all over the place. It's great, and awful. Perfect for HDTGM.

    I strongly feel that the 1992 sci-fi movie Mindwarp would be an excellent candidate for the HDTGM treatment. It actually had the potential to be an interesting, though provoking, entertaining movie, and the presence of Bruce Campbell (post Evil Deads) and Angus Scrimm means it wasn't a totally "off-the-map" release. But wow, it just ends up being pretty insane. Blood drinking, near-incest, a strange mute kid covered in cold-sores, demon leeches, Matrix-esque plot elements, slight nudity, underground mutants who mine garbage (for some reason?), ridiculously dated looking (even for 1992) technology, highly amateur philosophy, and one of the most god-awfully terrible, drawn out "twist" endings of all time (seriously terrible ending). There's so much to make fun of (including a lot of the acting performances.) Yet, probably enough interesting pieces of plot to actually spur some conversation. And it is sort of fun to watch, overall. It's streaming on Amazon (for rent): http://www.amazon.com/Mindwarp-Bruce-Campbell/dp/B004AGKTL0 Even if it never makes it to HDTGM, fans of the podcast are probably the types who would enjoy (making fun of) this movie.
