    Episode 226.5 - Minisode 226.5

    Wait, Paul is a contestant?? I need to catch up! We watched the holiday season last year because we saw Jason was on it, and I flipped my shit when I saw one of the contestants was my fave writing teacher from college (not in the ep with Jason though). Pretty much binged the whole thing in a day. Such a good show!

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    According to what we see in the movie, the Soul half lets a person turn into a ghost being who can possess other people's bodies, and the Body half makes the user impervious to physical harm. There's zero information indicating that the Body half can possess bodies, and it wouldn't make sense. Jimmy is just a frigging idiot at that moment. And on that topic, the use of the medallions bothers me, specifically the Body half, because as we saw, it made it so Billy could survive crashing through a concrete wall (I assume they were going for concrete since there was rebar?). A person normally wouldn't have enough force to break through a wall like that, so I can only assume the Body medallion made Billy's body rock hard. But then a moment later Shuko-Jimmy punches off bits of the wall bare-handed, which I don't think he should be able to do since there's nothing indicating that the Soul half grants physical superhuman abilities. Likewise, Billy procedes to beat the shit out of his possessed brother. The one who has a magical body strong enough to crash through concrete unscathed beats up his own brother whose only "power" is just that Shuko is controlling him. This should have been the fight to the death. Jimmy should be dead lol

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    The whole thing is just very 90s fashion-wise. Hers makes me think someone tried to do a sort of custom casual-aerobics outfit. It has a somewhat athletic feel. I didn't get why the Lee Bros tried to look at her butt when she was picking up the gangnet device when she first appears with the Power Corp. She's wearing that long coat, what do you expect to see? Lol Knowing now the, uh, end of the game, it struck me more how both bros got excited too get a look at her ass, even though Jimmy acted less interested at times, maybe under the right conditions they would fight to the death over her! Where is that sequel?!

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    Oh my god, Cam Bert, that is TRAGIC. I want to laugh, but I'm also REALLY SAD. Also, what a sore loser! I finished listening to the ep and read through everything. Really cool hearing some behind-the-scenes stories! I'm a little sad that I missed the cut-off for Corrections and Ommissions, but honestly I'm not sure that I'd have anything good to add since I just had such nostalgia for the movie. Though watching now that I'm older, I did understand more of the jokes and references. I will say I'm surprised that no one seemed to mention The Warriors as possible inspiration for all the crazy costumed gangs. Specifically what was up with the middle-aged gang members dressed up like schoolboys?? Honestly terrifying.

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    Just popping in quick because I just finished rewatching the movie, but I won't have time to listen to the episode until tomorrow morning at work. BUT I WANTED TO SAY I loved this movie unironically when I was younger. Like enough that I still have a copy of it on VHS. I was ecstatic to find a used copy of Double Dragon on DVD in time for this episode. I don't know, guys. I don't know how to critique this yet. I know it's incredibly stupid, but I still have a fond nostalgia for this movie lmao (help) Anyway, I will listen to the ep tomorrow and get back and read everyone's comments. Cannot wait! "AIRMAIL!!!"

    Musical Mondays Week 64 The Wicker Man

    When Sammich found the Cage version on TV last week, it was missing the bee scene as well, which is a tragedy imo, because it's one of, if not the best scene. I'm really glad everyone seems to have enjoyed the original though! It definitely surprised me when I first watched it, especially the musical element. I definitely consider it horror, though it does seem subdued by today's standards. I certainly appreciate how well built the story is, and how normal the island society appears at first glance, as opposed to the obviously bizarre community that Cage visits. It makes it a bit more realistic. And I love that Howie gets to leave them with a curse.

    Musical Mondays Week 64 The Wicker Man

    The blu-ray we have is The Final Cut (approx 94 mins) and seems to be the "middle version" according to the info on wikipedia. But I haven't seen the other versions to know how it compares. It seemed to flow pretty well imo, so I guess the chronology helps. I only saw the film once prior, so I had forgotten some of what happens, but I think that's one of my favorite scenes in the film. The song is really great and it has a lot of emotion between Willow's beckoning dance and Howie's obvious frustration as he resists her temptation. It definitely seems like a weird reaction, but he knows what she is trying to do and he's fighting so hard to remain true to his Christian values. Ironically, giving in to the temptation might've saved him, idk There's so much more thought put into the original. Even the costume that Sgt Howie steals is significant.

    Musical Mondays Week 64 The Wicker Man

    There's so much to the original that just builds a wilder, but more solid story I think. The conflict of religion is a big one. I also like how developed the island is, so that you only realize something is off by the behavior of its inhabitants. The virgin sacrifice aspect too is not part of the Cage version. The songs just add to the atmosphere. They are used so naturally, but are rather unsettling.
  13. I'm not sure if it's officially considered a musical, but I would say it can count as a musical lol
  14. Oh ho, I was awaiting this day~ I was going to pick something different, but then a post on twitter reminded me of this film, and I couldn't get it out of my head. Soo, I hope you're ready for

    Wish Upon (2017)

    It's not even like the lawn is really overgrown, so someone would have had to pick up the bike every time the lawn was mowed and then put it back in the exact same spot. Like no one gave it any thought at all lol
