    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    Not to hate on any of the guest stars, but I am always so excited to get a just June, Paul, and Jason ep. They have such amazing chemistry. He's like the Jessica Fletcher of Sharks.

    Oops... didn't mean to frighten! Just trying on something new. I guess people don't change their avatars around here much.

    At least us Ranchers aren't Moldy Oldies.
  7. The way they served up the step-dad to be killed was particularly hilarious to me. Here they were, alone on a boat...He had been beat up all to hell, was drunk as shit, was being a complete belligerent asshole, talked direct shit about Dill's kid, and there was even a line somewhere about the only police being out of town. The only thing that would have made it better was for him to have gotten accidentally covered in chum while counting a huge wad of cash and spouting off about having no parents or siblings.
  8. I dunno, for narrative purposes I am willing to suspend disbelief that the characters within the game buy their world as real, and to express that to the audience (and to not give away the twist) the world has to seem real. This actually touches on something I was thinking about this movie and that it lacks a stylization. How interesting would it have been that when the twist were to be revealed that the world got more and more video game like... Less detailed, the same NPCs walking down the street, more obvious souless behavior... even some pixelization?
  9. The news broadcast is outside the matrix.
  10. They explain this that is close to the name of one of his favorite teachers? First McConaughey says this and then the news broadcasts quotes a teacher with a name that is a riff on Baker Dill.
  11. Addressing Baker Dill being sentient: He does seemingly start to become sentient when he pulls the knife on the 2 drunk guys in the beginning. That's the beginning of things starting to go awry. I assume that when Baker pulled the knife, this could also be the moment that the kid got the knife in meatspace? We as the audience know something is off because that's when the salesman first misses Baker, he's very confused as to why Baker isn't there at the coast. He should have been there according to the strict predictability of video game timing. Something changed. I guess you could assume this is when the kid started to code the game into the new game: killing the stepdad. ? Before this time, it was just Baker being the player in the fishing game. I don't think Baker has the literal spirit of the kid's father, but I do think this is the "eaten the forbidden fruit" moment. Whether he has free will is unclear and doubtful, but I do think he became sentient.

    I can do 88 minutes. I just started up Starz and I think we are good to go as long as Rabbit isn't being a jerk. 9 EST?

    Musical Mondays Week 55 Rockula

    I guess in the beginning I thought that Ralph's reflection was a part of the curse of Mona. Like he split into 2 people, Ralph the dork and Ralph the smooth guy in the mirror and he was going to break the curse by saving Mona and losing his virginity... but that's not what was happening it all? I was mostly annoyed that mirror Ralph wasn't always dressed like Dorky Ralph - vampire lore or not THAT. MAKES. NO. SENSE. I mentioned this to AlmostAGhost and Grudlian, but I wished the Pirate curse part was fleshed out more... like once Thomas Dolby was designated to be the Pirate with the hambone that he slowly becomes a pirate. Like first he starts hitting his Rrrrrs really hard, then gets a parrot, then loses a leg and so on and so forth until BAM full pirate.

    Episode 203 - Perfect Stranger: LIVE!

    Those years were the birth of facebook... and birth and death of myspace. People were still using AIM, but not like it's heyday in the late 90s/early Naughties. This movie, like a lot of HDTGM, felt like it was written by people who only witnessed people using the internet once but didn't have any first hand experience themselves. The talking while typing is so dorky and unnatural.
