  1. Just watched this again, and I'm shocked it's never been done, let alone suggested. It's a French historical drama/supernatural/mystery/action film that is technically based on the Beast of Gévaudan, but is so completely bonkers that it defies words. True story: There was a large animal that killed a lot of people in Gévaudan, France in the 1700's. Most people theorized it was a large wolf or wolf hybrid, though a couple have made a case for it actually being a lion. The movie: A naturalist from the king's court comes to help figure out what the beast is, along with his native American sidekick who knows martial arts and has slightly magical powers. Over the span of two hours, there's melodrama, intrigue, random martial arts battles, totally insane camera movements, unexplained mysticism, conspiracies, and bizarre CGI. It's made all the more surreal because it's in French, so it feels like it's supposed to be sophisticated, but it's more jarring than anything.

    Why did they change the theme song?

    True, but what's stopping you from skipping it? It's not like it's live TV.

    The Core (2003)

    By far, this is my favorite disaster film of all time; only 2012 has come close to the sheer ridiculousness of it, and even that pales in comparison. It just has such amazing pseudo-science: the center of the Earth stopping because of earthquake machines, a metal that somehow converts the heat of magma into electricity, using nukes to get the core of the earth spinning again, etc. As Jason would say, This. Movie. Is. BONKERS. But it is also insanely entertaining. PLEASE DO THIS FILM!

    I don't really dig the new theme, either, but I just fast forward past it. Is it really so traumatic that the OP can't?
