    Ep. 249 — Deadly Mile High Club

    You know that episode of Mythbusters where they test whether you can be talked down when landing an aircraft without experience? After the pandemic, is there any chance we can re-create that, but with June? Asking for a friend.

    Episode 247.5: Prequel to Episode 248

    The story of Star Wars is the story of building new lightsabers:

    Episode 246 - Swordfish: LIVE!

    Apparently Vinnie Jones was saved from serious injury in a stunt when Travolta convinced him to let a stuntman do it. Hey, how about if a stunt looks too dangerous, you recommend no one does it, not just the principal cast.

    Episode 246 - Swordfish: LIVE!

    The music in the blowjob hacking scene sounds like a hybrid of the Snatch theme and the music from the Turkey Sandwich/Hubcap vehicle On the Line.
  5. Canadian Goosebumps is just called Goosebumps: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111987/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2 The 1995 tv adaptation was filmed in Toronto.

    Episode 241: Ninja III: The Domination

    Paul would've loved to have the hot and mild running Clamato envisioned by this guy: Except maybe with V8 instead -- Or both.

    Episode 241: Ninja III: The Domination

    In addition to being a ninja movie, this is also a subset of the aerobics movies of the 80s like Heavenly Bodies and Perfect where an aerobics studio was just a natural setting for a movie. Same thing that gave us things like Death Spa.

    Episode 241: Ninja III: The Domination

    The modern depiction of ninjas is from the Kabuki tradition. The audience knew to ignore the stagehands, dressed in all black, as not part of the action of the play. But sometimes, an "invisible" stagehand would kill someone in the play, and that was regarded as a ninja secretly assassinating someone. Historical ninjas would never dress like that, even at night, as they are trying to blend in and such an outfit would be incredibly suspicious. As spies, they would want to avoid the kind of confrontation that would ensue from dressing like that. As much as anything, movies use that trope so the heroes can wholesale slaughter any numbers of faceless enemies without it being alarming.

    Episode 240.5 — Minisode 240.5

    Paul was closer than he thought when he suggested the first Leisure Suit Larry was text based: It was actually a remake of the text only adventure game Soft Porn Adventure. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softporn_Adventure One of the most baffling things about next week's movie, Ninja 3: The Domination is that there's no Ninja 1 or Ninja 2 that it follows. It's not like Rambo 3 that follows First Blood and Rambo: First Blood part 2. And it's not like Star Wars where they added Episode IV to the re-release to make it seem like a serial. They pretty much went, "Well there's are at least two other unrelated Ninja movies that I can think of, so let's make this Ninja 3."
  10. Basically, this is Memento, but Guy Pearce is John G (Joey Pants). The protagonists of both are amnesiacs who murder people based on manipulated memories of a murdered wife.
  11. Wait -- In this grandmother's story, the child was killed? Then who related the parts of the story when he was alone?!? This just does not stand up to scrutiny. Oh, also the talking meat part, I guess. Actually it's kinda a gift of the Magi retelling. "I got hamburger meat to feed you, but you've been turned into hamburger meat for me to buy. Oh, how we laughed."
  12. Well, to Jason's point, this movie was filmed in Massachusetts, so I guess that must explain the lack of chemistry. ;)

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    It looks like they just sewed a piece of fabric from the bottom of the each of the jean short pocket liners to the top of the pant legs, for whatever reason they'd have for doing that. Of course the camouflage jackets are like the tribe from Crystal Skull in that they are only useful for that very specific movie reveal and wouldn't make sense for the characters in any other situation.

    This should be in the forum for the episode, but it doesn't appear to exist: So, you're saying the cake is a lie, in some way?
