Episode 167 - Chopping Mall: LIVE!
tdtdt replied to JulyDiaz's topic in How Did This Get Made?Thanks for sharing that. I think Paul played the gross commentary track to show that those dudes were creeps, but in a "Wow, isn't it funny how creepy they are?" sort of way. Thankfully, June wasn't having that. If that clip had been played earlier, as perhaps it should have been (when Jason was talking about how awesome all the boobs were), it would have shown that he understood how disgusting those men were. Of course, it would have completely derailed the show, but maybe that should have happened anyway.
Episode 499 - The Freak
tdtdt replied to JulyDiaz's topic in Comedy Bang BangHe understood the gist, just was not that good / kinda slow.
Episode 111 - Lost in Translation vs. Marie Antoinette (w/ Stephanie Zacharek)
tdtdt replied to DaltonMaltz's topic in The CanonMarie Antoinette I can watch over and over. It has wonderful forward momentum, and Dunst is perfect in all stages of Marie's life. Lost In Translation is also great, but MA is a more impressive and distinctive work.
Episode 98 - Ghostbusters
tdtdt replied to DaltonMaltz's topic in The CanonI think if you showed Ghostbusters to a group of people aged 13-30 who had never seen it before, the responses would range from shoulder shrugs to disgust. I don't think Bill Murray's character's arrogance holds up as "charming". I do think the movie does a fantastic job of combining action, light horror and comedy, though, and Sigourney Weaver is fantastic. Side note: very surprised by Amy's celebration of Revenge of the Nerds. This is a movie where the underdog "wins" by straight up raping the hot, blonde cheerleader, (after illicitly taking nude photos of her and her friends), and she falls in love with him for it.
Episode 412 - Little Whittle Whistle
tdtdt replied to JulyDiaz's topic in Comedy Bang BangFor what it's worth, (which is next to nothing), I am more apt to like Cameron Esposito because she is an unapologetic feminist and unafraid to voice her political views, (and from Chicago, to boot!), but I have yet to enjoy her comedy. Granted, I haven't heard or seen a ton of it, but nothing she has done has made me want to dig deeper. Remain open-minded, and am ready to be convinced by her work otherwise. Also found it unfortunate that the first to mention her gender and sexuality were those defending her. Not that it would have been any more fortunate for those who dislike her work to bring it up first, but defending someone's gender or sexuality when those things are not being addressed shows a lot about how one thinks of people.
