    Episode 135 - Solarbabies: LIVE!

    I thought the purpose of Tiretown was to break down tires back into their fundamental components. Which would be used for....something. But regardless Tiretown seemed like a worse place to be than the orphanage. The movie never spent the time (or budget) to show the location of the ruling class and put it in contrast to the rest of the shitty waterless world.

    Episode 135 - Solarbabies: LIVE!

    Fantastic episode. 100% justified watching Solarbabies. In fact I'd say this episode can balance out at least 2.5 viewings of Solarbabies. With June's delivery of "It was behind a dam." worth at least 0.5 viewings by itself. OK can we talk about the sport of skateball for a second? Without knowing the rules I was just thinking why are these assholes skating around and around and not moving towards the easily accessible goal right in the center of the court? Charles Durning's voice over exposition should have gone more like this. "Is Bodhi real? I don't know. But I do know that in skateball the ball has to make 3 complete circuits around the edge of the rink before it can be scored." Then fade into the action. Also the orphanage seems to be the easiest place to escape in movie history. The Strictor seems to actually care about stopping kids from escaping. And the ins and outs of the place seem to be well known to every character in this movie. But putting a lock on something or posting a guard is a bridge too far.

    Episode 131 - Jake and Amir, Our Close Friends

    Classic Engineer Cody uploading the wrong file. I wonder how long before they realize the mistake?

    Episode 130 - Mike Lawrence, Our Close Friend

    I am hoping sometime soon the boys will have J.K. Simmons on and he slips into his Whiplash character and forces Sean to play sound drop after sound drop.

    Episode 134 - Can't Stop the Music: LIVE!

    My favorite recurring bit in the movie was how people just declared their position with the band and there was never one bit of push back. I'm their manager. I'm their lawyer. I'm their sales agent. I'm their number one roadie. There are probably some more in there I am forgetting. I also thought Jenner's character was wildly unreasonable in the movie. He had just transferred into that office a few days ago. He turns the place into a full on circus for their auditions. He gets very lightly reprimanded for that and blows up and quits on the spot.

    Episode 279 - Rise N' Grind

    Rory was a great guest and Those Who Can't is a funny show. It gets this internet stranger's endorsement.

    Episode 133 - The Quest

    I know pointing out that movies always get the density of gold wrong is old hat. But it is especially egregious in this movie. That statue had to weigh at least 5 tons. Them having any plans of sneaking off with it were beyond ridiculous. The fact that JCVD is somewhat stronger than an average man won't help anything here. In fact now that I think about it the whole golden dragon statue prize is probably a scam by the Lost City. After there is a winner they say sure the statue is all yours. You just have to handle shipping and handling yourself. Basically an impossible task. Eventually the winner slinks away empty handed and the Lost City gets to run it all back.

    Episode 133 - The Quest

    Yeah but conservatively they could have been well into 1926 then.

    Episode 133 - The Quest

    Maxie was the clear MVP of this movie for me. He had an amazingly adventurous spirit that I believe was built on a foundation of not having the mental capacity to visualize any negative future outcome.

    Episode 133 - The Quest

    Come November I am writing in Episode 133 of HDTGM as my choice for President. I thought JCVD giving up the golden dragon made this a perfect story for a Frank Dux type bullshit artist. "Yes, I did win the greatest fighting tournament in the world BUT I can't show you the proof of that because I gave up the prize to save the lives of my idiot friends/slavers."

    Episode 132.5 - Minisode 132.5

    The next movie reveal really threw me. I was waiting for Paul to explain how Can't Stop the Music was just like Bloodsport.

    Episode 277 - Stomp out the Stompers

    I would have also accepted Cat Poster Songs as the episode title.

    Episode 132 - Bloodsport: LIVE!

    I'd just go the other way with it and say that all the Mexican and Canadian fighters were too smart to get involved with the Kumite. Or better yet their governments are better at keeping their trained weapons from sneaking out of the country.

    Episode 132 - Bloodsport: LIVE!

    If June were there I think she would have let them know their little buddy was the concierge hired by the Kumite people to take care of the North American fighters. It seems like a first rate organization other than stopping pretty easily preventable deaths in the ring.

    Episode 132 - Bloodsport: LIVE!

    I hope everyone glances at a window and sees this today. My extra favorite part of this is that JCVD is hallucinating Chong Li in clothes that he has never seen him in before.

    Episode 132 - Bloodsport: LIVE!

    I don't use the word hero lightly...
  17. I wanted to trust their basketball analysis. But no mention of Adam Morrison who was the college basketball best dude AND went on to be a two time Snooze League champion.

    Episode 131 - The Covenant

    I like this explanation. Even though it is a tired trope I was really expecting them to have to Voltron up to beat the Winter Soldier. They should have fit in one quick scene to explain that Tyler was so useless that combining with him would be a net negative.

    If this isn't the correction/omission of the week then the whole damn system is broken!

    EPISODE 124 — Big Apple Bible, Episode 1

    I just saw that Party City's stock price is through the roof today. All day breakfast is paying off big time.

    Episode 131 - The Covenant

    A big shout out to all those doing the witch hunting in the past of this movie. These witches are so powerful killing an entire village in self defense would probably be no sweat.

    Episode 131 - The Covenant

    Going back to the bad cops angle (which didn't play into the plot at all). They are doing a high speed chase through the woods at night to.....bust some kids for underage drinking? A doctor in the movie delivers the line: "...as if she has been bitten by hundreds of insects. Like spiders." Renny doesn't get a pass on that for being foreign. Their schools are supposed to be much better than ours. The only thing in this movie that was upsetting to me was that their dorm rooms had tall frosted glass windows that faced the hallway. What the hell is that? Not being able to control the light coming into your room feels like it should be considered torture under the Geneva convention.

    Episode 131 - The Covenant

    Ha ha I had a list of things I thought they didn't cover and then they hit almost all of them in the any last thoughts section. One thing that wasn't brought up is that Caleb is a pretty sanctimonious dick about keeping the covenant but doesn't really practice what he preaches. He has no problem joining in to show off their powers right in front of the cops during the car chase. (Maybe give him a pass on that one if he knew Ipswitch cops are so dimwitted they don't collect evidence at murder scenes.) He throws Reid around outside of Nicky's when anyone could have walked by and seen it. But the most insane one was the last shot of the movie when he fixes his windshield while surrounded by about a dozen firefighters. Maybe chalk that one up to post concussion syndrome.

    Episode 274 - Tedpool

    Sam was right. "Buy now while the stock is low" killed me. Great overall episode.
  25. I feel like when Hayes gets invited to do The Wolf Den it is going to be very intense.
