  1. My top choice would be The Meateater (1979).  It's way too obscure and low-budget to be on here, but it's my favorite horrible movie. A horribly acted horror film from the 1970s that only got its title because the producers ran out of money and got some funding from some pork/meat company (the second half of the movie has irrelevant "eat meat" propaganda in it). Can be found on the youtube.Meateater3-1.thumb.jpg.8b1200a7fc60ab39d5337eee44f086c7.jpg

     

    Rounding out my Top 5:

    The FP (2011)

    Frankenhooker (1990)

    The Peanut Butter Solution (1985)

    Society (1989)

     I love Paul’s anecdote about how he once tried to French kiss his mother.  If anyone remembers the episode, please let me know!

     

    Ha! I actually just listened to this last night...

    Reindeer Games, begins around 5:15

  3. What was your first episode of HDTGM?

    Mr. Nanny. I was hooked right away, and as soon as I got home, I found the movie to check out the guy tossing the dog into the water. I'd seen the movie 5-6 times before and never noticed!

     

    Favorite catchphrase?

    Look at my username, and take a wild guess.

     

    A clip or moment that you'll always remember? (timestamps are nice )

    The first moment I knew right away would be an instant classic was June's "They're here!" freak out during Runaway, when she thought Lois the Robot had taken over her electronics to listen to This American Life.

     

    The episode you revisit the most

    No Holds Barred. The grunts, Hulk impressions... just hilarious! Some friends and I now call each other Jock-ass and say, "Take a leak!" all the time.

     

    The movie that you loved or hated watching

    Miami Connection is one of my favorite movies of all time now. I even own a Dragon Sound shirt!

    Super Mario Bros. bored me to tears. I didn't find it entertaining at all, even in a bad way.

     

    How HDTGM fits into your weekly routine

    I check for the mini-episode immediately on Friday to find out the next movie. I tend to listen to the latest full episode whenever I have a long-ish car ride or am cleaning the house, whichever comes first.

     

    What the show has meant to you after all these years or any other sappy stuff 

    I actually came about HDTGM during a rough patch in my life. I'd just started an hour-long commute to a job I ended up hating. It was a toxic work environment that had me stressed to the point I'd feel nauseated and couldn't sleep. Having this podcast on during those drives distracted me from the dread of going into work and allowed me to relax after leaving. It was the lighthearted break from life that I needed (I left the job after a year), and I'll forever be thankful to Paul, June, and Jason for that.

    Those two have a history of being contrarian with movies on both negative and positive sides. People have this love affair with them because they weren't snooty film critics, for the most part, but they have done some cheap things in the past, like Siskel ruining the ending of the first Friday the 13th because he felt no one should see the movie and he didn't like the director, or Ebert getting into a fight with people over how he gave a classic like Godfather part 2 3 stars while giving the abysmal Godfather part 3, 3 1/2 stars, using an argument that he doesn't care if he's consistent in how he reviews movies. He's also given movies like Anaconda 3 1/2 stars, yes a higher rating than Godfather 2, while giving standing classics like Die Hard, Blue Velvet, and The Usual Suspects all under 2 stars.

     

    They also made Kingpin seem like the funniest movie of all time (they couldn't stop smiling and giggling while reviewing it), so much so that my family decided we had to go IMMEDIATELY to the theater and see it that morning. It wasn't awful, it wasn't great... it was just fine, which was somehow the most disappointing it could have been.


  5. Fantastically awful movie that's incredibly disturbing. Anyone trying to push abstinence-only education should just show students this movie. It's physically impossible for anyone to perform if they've just seen this.

     

    I imagine everyone would have multiple priceless reactions to all the twisted things in Teeth. That being said, I don't know if Paul could do that to June... one two infinitely too many sexual assaults.


  6. Supercrack... drilling into the head... monologues galore... June's reaction when they keep criticizing the non-fat girlfriend's weight... June's reaction with all the female body part measuring... June's reaction to the little old man perv... the crew needs to do this one.
