  1. I only watched the 18 minute “best scenes” clip on YouTube because the full movie wasn’t available. I still have like 23,508,319 questions, but the main one is- How did Neil get computer files on his magic rock/jewel/Jed Clampett-inspired buckeye from his childhood? I mean, there’s your story.

    At the end, when Marian and Jimmy let Abobo drive, Jimmy tells Marian that it’s Billy in Abobo’s body. But didn’t Jimmy have the “possess other people’s body” part of the medallion? It really ruined the movie for me.

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

    They had to use the metric system. How else would we know it was THE FUTURE!!!
  6. Mistake #2- Bringing Arnold Horshack for backup.

    We should introduce her to “Manos: The Hands Of Fate.”

    Maybe this movie was what Lucille was talking about.

    I think we should recognize that there are few names more entertaining than “Marjoe Gortner.”

    I’m not saying that my brother and I built more realistic-looking spaceships with LEGOs when we were kids, but I’m not NOT saying it, either.

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... This movie could have been pretty good if the director would have made the fight scene between Stella Star and the Space Amazons about two hours longer.

    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.

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

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

    Thanks! I guess it’s true- you learn something new every day.

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

    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.

    Compared to “Deadfall,” Nick Cage’s performance in “Vampire’s Kiss” was subtle and nuanced.

    I get the impression that Chris might not have had a firm grasp on “film noir.”

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

    I wonder if Nick Cage ever thought about taking his brother aside during filming and telling him, “I’ve worked with David Lynch, and Chris, you’re no David Lynch.”

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    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.

    There’s a fingertip heart rate tester in the bar. I assume it’s there for safety reasons, in case a game of stand-off gets out of hand.

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    I think the star of the movie is the guy with the “let a gargoyle sit on your face” shirt.

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    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.

    Episode 217 - Jaws 3-D

    I was in high school during the 80’s 3D resurgence, and saw most of them. They were all pretty cheesy, but my favorite was “Parasite.” It was low-budget, starring a young Demi Moore. It was MST3K-level ridiculous, but it had one of the best 3D reveals ever. I went to see “Jaws 3D” on opening night with a group of friends. The theater was packed, and we had to sit in the back row. After 30 minutes, the audience completely lost it, yelling insults at the screen, throwing popcorn and empty soda cups at the screen. It was like the theater scene from “Gremlins.” It was one of the best times I’ve had at a movie, just 200 people united in their hatred for a really terrible movie. One of the nice things about the era was the re-release of “House Of Wax” with Vincent Price. It had the best 3D effect I’ve ever seen. Towards the end, Charles Bronson’s character runs into the scene from the foreground, and it absolutely looked like someone leaping into the scene from the audience.
