    With those back problems? The Mon Stars would have ruined him.


    Best part of the movie:

    Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?

    Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?

    Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

    i had to look up what the video game version of Abobo looked like because I couldn't remember and must say, the film was pretty accurate



    So in order to demonstrate great strength, the makeup artists decided, “Let’s give him a neck scrotum. And make it super veiny.”

    This movie was bonkers. A specific detail that I have been hung up on for the past week is the fact that the computer system in the car that pulls up people's personal data lists their statistics (e.g. height and weight) in metric measurements (cm and kg, respectively). Did the earthquake cause America to abandon the imperial measurement system? Does the collapse of freedom units in Los Angeles have anything to do with the simultaneous deterioration of civic society, or is it simply coincidental? 

    They had to use the metric system. How else would we know it was THE FUTURE!!!

    GUYS. I re-watched the movie this afternoon and I'm here to tell you mistake #1.


    Do you see what I see?

    Thom Mathews who plays Tommy is 6'3". With that information and looking at screenshots, it looks like someone buried Jason a whopping 3 feet underground. That's right guys, Martin, the drunken groundskeeper can squarely be blamed for this entire fiasco. He might be a "damn high school graduate" but I think he must've flunked math and or geometry. Either that or while digging a hole, shitfaced and stumbling, he got to about knee deep and said Fuck it. "Burying this unstoppable, serial killing machine in a shallow, badly sealed grave will never come back to haunt me."

    Mistake #2- Bringing Arnold Horshack for backup.

    I really don't want Paul to give in to the Transformers Reference Of The Fallen bit. I was mildly annoyed that he kept giving it time in the mini episodes, but I really respect the commitment of the guy. I'd love for people to I Am Spartacus this and do it at other shows.

    Or do The Asylum’s “Transmorphers: Fall Of Man.” If it really is Michael Bay sending those DVDs, that should push him over the edge.

    I know several people have brought up Tony Clifton as Cage's reference point for Eddie, but is it possible that we was going for The Joker? Cage is a noted comic book obsessive — he has/had a multi-million dollar collection, including a lot of vintage DC stuff — so he'd be deeply familiar with the source material.

    Points in favor:

    • Largely green and purple wardrobe 
    • Insane smile and laugh 
    • has been disfigured in some way — disguising his appearance with wig/glasses/fake voices/etc.
    • Carries a deck of cards consisting solely of jokers 

    All of this, plus his outsized presence in what is otherwise a fairly stock noir/small-time-crook setting makes me think that was the overall vibe he was going for. Thoughts?

    I think Tony Clifton comes to mind purely on appearance, and that the character was so over the top


  7. Can someone explain what game Fats and Joe are playing? There seems to be only three balls on the table at any time. Also, it appears there are no pockets on the table. And near the end of the game, Joe hits the cue ball, but when the table is shown, the yellow ball is moving and the cue ball is sitting next to the red ball. I was very confused.

    When Mike is identifying Shelby’s body, there is a sign on the back wall (you can see it in the trading card image that Cameron H. posted).

    The sign says “AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY:  No one will enter this work area without explicit permission of aquarium department, in that it directly effects the well-being and behavior of the sharks”.

    First of all, they just captured that baby shark no more than a day ago (seemingly).  It seems odd that they would have had time to make up a sign already.

    Secondly, “well-being and behavior of the sharks”?  Sharks plural?  Seeing Shelby’s body is their first indication that there might be more than one shark so this sign makes no sense.

    They did manage to get a sign made to advertise that the baby shark was on display. Granted, it was a stencil and spray-painted sign, but someone got it done. My guess is that Danny made it. That guy did everything.

  9. Mind-blowing fact- one of the writers of this movie is Richard Matheson, author of “I Am Legend,” “The Shrinking Man,” “Hell House,” and numerous “Twilight Zone” episodes, including “Terror at 20,000 Feet.” 

    I’d like to think he was having drinks with one of the producers, and he told him, “Make it in 3D, that’s the only way you’re going to get people to watch it,” then demanded a writer’s credit.
