    Ghosts of Mars (2001)

    I watched it recently. It's hot garbage. Luckily, these entries don't hurt my opinion of Carpenter's career. He has enough good that I'll forgive the huge turds.
  2. For those about to rock, we salute you. It's time for scissors to go down.

    Ghosts of Mars (2001)

    This has to be Carpenter's worst film, right?
  4. I showed Morpheus my orifice, then he told me to get my nethers out of his Nebuchadnezzar.

    Holmes and Watson (2018)

    This is disappointing. I didn't expect much from Will Ferrell, but John C. Reilly is one of my favorites. Add in Lauren Lapkus (though I have no idea how big her part is), and I thought it would at least be decent. Doesn't sound like that's the case. This movie appears to be one that both critics and laypeople agree on. It's been deemed a steaming turd by both.

    Top Films of 2018

    Agreed. Nothing terribly original, but it was well done. My biggest gripe is how long the movie felt. Just a shade under two hours, but it felt like a long haul.

    Top Films of 2018

    Having two kids under 10 definitely led to some of the movies on this list. Probably wouldn't have seen Bumblebee, Incredibles 2 or Grinch otherwise. I almost didn't add it to my list, but I wanted to get to 10! If I were to throw another on the list, I guess I could add The Christmas Chronicles (again because of kids). It would be ahead of The Grinch, mostly because of Kurt Russell being Kurt Russell.

    Top Films of 2018

    I had to add it to the list because I couldn't think of any other 2018 releases that I had seen! I spent most of the year watching series or older movies (in some cases stuff that I had seen before). It's not terrible, but it's not good either. It adds nothing to the original other than Cindy Loo's mom is a single, working mother. It also has Kenan Thompson doing a pretty good voice. Otherwise, it's largely forgettable.

    They Live (1988)

    Are you out of your fucking mind? This is one of the best films of the 80's. It's pretty absurd, but it's an awesome movie.

    Top Films of 2018

    I admittedly didn't watch many actual new films this year, (I usually watch films that are older and am typically a couple years behind on new fimls) but here's some of the tops from my list. I have kids, which explains a couple entries. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Annihilation Black Panther Avengers: Infinity War Bumblebee Incredibles 2 Halloween Apostle (Netflix) A Futile and Stupid Gesture The Grinch For those who haven't seen them, I highly recommend the first two. The two I want to see most from 2018: Isle of Dogs and Mandy.

    Venom (2018)

    I'm a Venom fan. I'm a Tom Hardy fan. I had high hopes. Then I saw Sony was in charge and knew this would be doomed. Also, they should have gone for an R rating like Logan and Deadpool. I've seen this movie called pretty good, a complete disaster, and unintentionally funny. It sounds like madness. The caliber of people involved with this film is astounding...Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Ruben Fleischer (director), Scott Rosenberg (writer). One of my favorite quotes I've seen about the film: "Matt Patches pointed out that Hardy might be the only person in the movie who knows it's a comedy and responds accordingly." Unintentionally hilarious: https://www.thedailybeast.com/tom-hardys-venom-is-an-unintentionally-hilarious-disaster "An absurdly sloppy comic-book extravaganza about a noggin-chomping villain who becomes something of a hero, Venom is like its title character: so unbelievably bad it’s almost good. Almost." "Despite Hardy’s over-the-top tour de force, Venom can’t keep from embarrassing itself at every turn." Tom Hardy performance: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2018/10/venom-movie-review-tom-hardy "His accent is all over the place, and you fear for his physical well-being at times. I suppose that tracks; he’s got an alien entity wriggling around inside him, after all. The character, I mean. Hardy the actor doesn’t have some otherworldly being tugging on his brain. At least, I don’t think so." "For several weird stretches, though, Venom is a bouncy good time. The movie doesn’t seem to care if you’re laughing with it, at it, or whatever." A total mess: https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-reviews/venom-movie-review-tom-hardy-729583/ "In the first scene of Marvel’s utterly unmarvelous Venom, an alien space ship crashes and burns on earth leaving behind a slithering mass of defanged, digitalized slop. That’s also a fair description of this puddle of simplistic, sanitized PG-13 drivel that Marvel has released instead of the scary, dark-night-of-the-soul thunderbolt fans had the right to expect." "What went wrong? Everything, actually. Crudely directed by Ruben Fleischer (remember the bliss of Zombieland?) from an aggressively blockheaded script by Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, this super–antihero tale seems to take a twisted pride in missing the point." Future cult classic? https://www.wired.com/story/venom-movie-review/ "THIS IS A list of things that happen in the new movie Venom: Riz Ahmed, personifying every rich supervillain trope at once, utters the words "God has abandoned us … I will not"; Tom Hardy hops in a restaurant's lobster tank and eats a crustacean raw; the movie's titular character says "on my planet, I was kind of a loser"; and an alien turns into Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams. These are the kinds of moments that turn a movie into a cult favorite, or into a total disaster. Venom could be either—if it had any idea what it was at all."

    Episode 198.5 - Minisode 198.5

    I had never heard of A Night in Heaven before. This movie sounds ridiculous and should spur some good insight from Jason. But guys, I really want a couple other 80's gems...Ice Pirates (Robert Urich, 1984) and The Island (Michael Caine, 1980).

    Final Score (2018)

    I haven't seen this film, but isn't the basic premise pretty close to JCVD's "Sudden Death"? Just swap hockey and soccer.

    Surfer: Teen Confronts Fear (2018)

    I saw something comparing this to The Room. I don't know if that's a vote for or against this being on the show.

    Episode 197 - Beastly: LIVE!

    Guys, I checked into bus routes, and it's starting to look really difficult to get from NYC to Machu Picchu. You can go from NYC to Mexico, but that's where it starts to get tricky. "When you reach the Mexican border, all passengers need to get off the bus and collect all their belongings, including checked baggage. You’ll be asked by immigration what the reason is for your trip, and they may want to inspect your baggage." Now it's time for Central America. "Since most of the locals in Central America travel only short distances there are very few direct long-distance bus routes. However there are several large companies that operate buses across Central America, from Southern Mexico all the way to Panama City, providing comfortable and direct long-distance services for travelers. Long distance buses mostly connect large cities and towns, but they also travel to popular tourist destinations such as the Tikal Ruins and the colonial town of Antigua in Guatemala, as well as the Copán Ruins in Honduras, just to name a few." You have to go from Panama into Colombia, then make a long trip down to Peru. There was an alternative going from Costa Rica to Colombia. I gave up looking for how to do it when I got this far. "Thus far, we’ve logged about 3 days, or 73 hours, on buses from Bogotá to Lima, which doesn’t include day trips or excursions."

    Episode 197 - Beastly: LIVE!

    On the Beast's design... In his role as Hunter, Pettyfer's appearance was altered with heavy makeup and prosthetics. Hunter's appearance differs from the description in the novel; he has no fur or fangs. Pettyfer was pleased with the revision; he said, "I was very happy to know I wasn't going to be furry. Question is, were you happy I wasn't furry? Well, I think the audience will be happy. This beast make-up is phenomenal. You're talking to someone who is a fanatic about it [prosthetics and movie make-up] and I've never seen anything that looks remotely similar to this."
  17. I stumbled across the Earwolf page on Reddit somehow when I was searching for something on the Google. (Is it weird that I just found out about Reddit? What a shitshow.) Someone posted about the 200th episode coming up and it also made me wonder if Paul will have something big. Maybe something highly demanded? Maybe an all stars of all stars cast? (St. Clair, Nick Kroll and Mary Holland please!) Maybe Jason finally joins Twitter? Anyone hoping for a big celebration? Because CBB usually gets something special for the milestone episodes, I'm hoping this one will be epic, too.

    Any Thoughts on the 200th Episode?

    I do not follow them on IG. The Meg sounds like a great choice for the show. I'm excited to see who the guests are for that one!

    Warlock (1989)

    Bumping this hidden gem from 1989. I just watched it over the weekend, and might give it a second viewing to try and figure out what the hell is going on. Mix Terminator with Highlander, and you've got Warlock. This is worth covering for the not-special special effects alone. ' Entertainment Weekly denounced the special effects for being "so low-budget they might have come out of a joke shop."' This film somehow cost $15 million to make. Just the Trailer on YouTube
  20. It's easy to be opposed to inbreeding when you have an ugly family.
  21. Guys, it's time for me to come clean. This entire podcast series has just been an elaborate, long-game way to own the libs.
  22. Is there a goat who's actually considered the GOAT? Asking for a friend, who is a goat.
  23. The mood of the date changed after I asked if she'd like to compare ringworm. Women, right?

    USS Indianapolis (2016)

    I feel like I recommended this before, but maybe not. It's a Nic Cagiac production, so maybe Paul will want to steer clear after their recent collaboration. Sir Nicolas Cage stars as a WWII Navy Captain in a film that's based on a true story...a true story, of survival. "Nic Cage, Tom Sizemore and Tom Jane star in the harrowing tale of real life American heroes shipwrecked in shark infested waters in the waning days of World War II." That's right. And yes, it also includes Sizemore, Jane, James Remar. That's not enough? Well, how about the fact that it was directed by Mario Van Peebles? Still not sold? How about 9% on Rotten Tomatoes? No? Tough crowd. My last shot...$740k box office on a $40M budget!!! The risk here is that Cage doesn't go full Cage. Or maybe that's enough to warrant consideration. Here's basically the entire movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLIVmy5cwUQ
