    Episode 116.5 - Minisode 116.5

    To further the backpedaling on a dumb joke... I literally just opened my email at work and received an email that I have my annual hearing test on Wednesday this week. So I guess the EHS director where I work is also a fan.

    I promise I heard "prediposition" but according to my wife I never listen, so I could definitely be wrong.

    "Prediposition"? I had to listen to it three times, but that's not a word. At least Google doesn't think it's a word. Maybe Google is wrong. I'll update Urban Dictionary for Paul. Prediposition (noun) - Like predisposition, but how you feel about television shows on the USA Network.

    Wild Horses

    I watched a movie this weekend because it was written, directed, and starring Robert Duvall and co-starring James Franco and Josh Hartnett. I thought, "how bad could this be?" Well, it turns out pretty bad. I feel like the entire budget was wasted on Franco and Hartnett, because a large portion of the people with dialogue don't even have IMDB pages. They constantly trip over each other like a bad play were one will start in with their dialogue when the other person takes a long pause, and then the person taking the long pause immediately jumps in and interrupts the person who just started talking. It's one of those movies where you really wonder what all the other takes looked like because these were so bad. And the female lead appears to start off with trying to do a Texas accent and by the end of the film is totally Argentinian. The action shots, which are one car chase and then cops speeding to drug deal, are obviously sped up film. Like the people casually drove cars at 30 mphs and then they just fast forwarded the film for those scenes. They look awful. One of the worst things about this film though is that there are some really great scenes. Like when it is just Franco and Duvall, or Franco and Hartnett and some other guy who apparently is their older brother, those scenes are actually nice and they seem like there is a fifteen minute great short film about a Texas family loving and accepting their gay son (kinda). But the rest of plot is awkward and vague and feels unnecessary. So about an hour and twenty minutes probably should've been cut. Oh, and the title, I have no idea what that was for. Also the ending which is vague and pointless. So much you could go over on this awful film.

    EPISODE 115 — Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

    I'm not sure if I'm the first to point this out (because I'm far too lazy to read through all the posts), but I was relistening to some of the older HDTGM episodes and heard something strangely applicable to the this episode in Episode 69: Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles. Towards the end of the episode Matt Berry, the writer of Crocodile Dundee 3, is talking about his pitch to Paul Hogan and about how Paul Hogan loved his pitch because all the other pitches were just about Crocodile Dundee stopping a nuclear bomb or Crocodile Dundee in Space. Jason says how much he loves the idea of Crocodile Dundee in space and then Paul says that should be the sequel to Sharknado. I'm not saying the writers of Sharknado 3 stole that idea from Paul, but they stole that idea from Paul.
