  1. For anyone who hasn't watched this yet and plans to I watched it at 1.5x speed and doing that it almost matched the pace of a normal film. Towards the end of the movie there is an insert shot of a digital alarm clock going from 11:59pm to midnight and although I have no evidence I feel almost sure that Neil Breen waited until that time of day to film that rather than realizing he could just set the clock.
  2. Not to mention that presumably it was one of these books where Lilly learned the powerful magic that she used to cast her dying breath incantation strong enough to rip Daniel's soul from hell for 12 days a year. Daniel obviously ending up in hell because he traveled to Canada for the purpose of making a profit. Whatever Lilly did obviously isn't common knowledge or we'd be up to our ears in 12 day ghosts.
  3. Is this the first podcast episode where someone has joined via text? HDTGM still innovating after all of these years. The absurdity of the situation made me crack up with every June interjection. My favorite part of this movie was how the ghost world was still very bound to earthly law with Daniel being restricted by the property line rather than just haunting the house like a usual ghost story. If over the years the inn had sold off some of their property to a neighbor would Daniel still be able to go into that area or would he be bound by the newly drawn property lines?
  4. I am 100% with you on this. When I was watching the movie I thought they must have been trying to set two specific records. One being make a feature length film with the shortest script ever and the second being include the most orbiting camera shots of any movie ever made. I also throw in my support for my fellow inflexible brethren. The movie was missing one small piece of writing which was what the hell was Johnnie Blackwell's motivation for being in the US? He was clearly desperate to be in "New York" to the point of paying $5K that he couldn't spare but I have no idea why. The top of the movie should have included a deep fake of David Cameron giving a fiery speech that he would end the scourge of violin players in the London Underground and then I'd have been on board.

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    I really loved Alyssa Milano's slow burn plan of altering the profit split between the gangs, waiting for them to notice their pay stubs were different, and then assuming the gangs would riot and overthrow Robert Patrick. Especially her restraint in just bumping up one gang's split by like 15%. I guess to be fair in this world one of those gangs would have been all accountants so they'd notice. It also shows that the communistic economic model that Robert Patrick established really seemed to be thriving up to that point. They totally controlled the nights of New Angeles with each gang taking an exactly even split.

    Episode 226 - Body of Evidence: LIVE!

    I'd like to think that Amazon synopsis of the movie was written by someone who read the novelization of Body of Evidence rather than actually watching it. So was Madonna's relationship with Dafoe real on her part or was it manipulative? The movie seems to suggest that every relationship she has involves an ulterior motive, but in his case I don't know what she had to gain unless she thought he'd take his lawyering up a notch if they were sleeping together. And who is getting that 8 million dollars now Madonna's next of kin or the dead millionaire's?

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    I am glad you reminded me of this because it was one of the funniest things in the movie to me. The ship WAS just right there out of frame. Thor couldn't take off because Akton had sabotaged the ship. But Stella and Elle made no attempt whatsoever to get inside. As soon as Thor said that he had taken over the ship they immediately went to the option of lying in the snow for as far as they knew the next thousand years. It makes me think that it is a known thing in this universe that locking your keys inside your spaceship is pretty much the absolute worst thing that can happen to you.

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    The Count came so close to nailing his protection plan for his ultimate weapon of doom with the two levels of defense. Level 1 is some sort of psychic space monster that can destroy the minds of every person aboard any approaching ship and are so effective that even robots succumb to their attack. Only someone like Akton who has whatever power or ability is convenient to the plot at that moment can make it through their defense. Level 2 is some cave men. So an A for the concept but a C- on the execution of the idea.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    We actually did have an office that was kept open for traveling executives to use when they were in town but it wasn't luxurious. But if Donald Sutherland stands to personally make 100 million dollars from the corporate merger (which is how I took what he said in the movie, not that the company was worth 100 million) then he might be the kind of guy that would demand a luxurious office waiting for him at every branch.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    In the corporate world there can essentially be an unlimited number of VPs within the company. At my old job the head of our office was a VP but the only people under him in the corporate structure were in our office. The VPs have control of their own little kingdoms but not necessarily company-wide authority. It was odd that they chose the Seattle office for the merger and not wherever the corporate headquarters were but I guess you could say it makes since if Corridor was their crown jewel and they wanted to show that off as part of the merger. As for the future of Michael Douglas at DigiCom after he survived the ouster attempt and got passed over for the promotion again he can go into a mode known as "resting and vesting". He has his stock options which presumably will be very valuable from the merger. He just has to hang on at the company long enough for those options to mature then he cashes in and he is out the door.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    My job has a ton of overlap with DigiCom so there were certain details about this movie I found very funny. The biggest one being that the entire premise of the movie would have never happened. As soon as they found out there was a critical manufacturing problem with Arcamax Michael Douglas would have had his ass on a plane to Malaysia so he wouldn't be around to get sexually harassed. It was also funny that the Kato Kaelin guy was apparently one of the lead developers of the VR system but also the one who is doing failure analysis on CD-ROM drives. Hopefully the Conley company did their due diligence and know if they lose Kato DigiCom is worthless. But Conley should have killed the deal even after the Arcamax problem was solved. No way they should purchase a company where it is possible to make major manufacturing changes and the head of manufacturing is completely in the dark. DigiCom's Product Lifecycle Mangement (PLM) system gets an F. I'm just putting all of this out there because I hope to get hired as a consultant for the Disclosure remake.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    I think one of the best examples of why this is a good HDTGM movie is that a crucial plot point is a factory that we essentially never visit has changed from a Level 7 to Level 5 air handler. This movie could have been truly great if it been tweaked so that the sexual harassment was a contrived plot where everyone was a conspirator (including his wife and kids) to give Michael Douglas the crucial motivation to solve the Arcamax problem.
  13. The villain of this movie is without question Lizzie's father. He thinks Marsha Mason is being a terrible mother so his response is to walk out of Lizzie's life forever? Dude is trash.

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

    Which love triangle had the most explosive energy? Joe, Diane, and Eddie? Or Joe, Donut Shop Girl, and Pizza Guy (Nick Vallelonga). The thing I want to focus on is how little money Diane was given at the end of the movie. Her part in the con was the most insane in that Mike Donan thought a quick glimpse of a woman that looked Joe's mother would make Joe take specific predictable actions leading to the successful con. But Diane had to move to another town for who knows how long before Joe got there and establish a relationship with the most insane character ever captured on film. And then manipulate Eddie to the point that she could drive him to attack Lou at just the right moment. In addition to having to seduce Joe as well. Diane was basically doing all of the heavy lifting for a ridiculous plan and then at the end she got what looked like 2% of the take. Peter Fonda walked off with the same amount for doing almost nothing. Unequal pay is a serious societal problem and nowhere worse than in Deadfall.

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    One thing that was very clear from this movie is that Dr. Morgan absolutely picked the right career path to be a marine biologist. She had a HUGE joyous reaction to finding out that both dolphins had survived. That was about a minute after seeing her coworker Control Room Fred eaten alive in front of her not to mention seeing the body of FitzRoyce in the shark's mouth. I'd say her reaction to the baby shark dying was also a lot stronger than towards any human tragedy that happened. I definitely thought LGJ was the owner of the park not just the administrator. I am pretty sure one of the reporters at the start of the movie called him an eccentric entrepreneur. My absolute favorite part of the movie was when they added what sounded like a lion's roar for the shark.
