  1. Nothing of substance to add, but, to this day I still quote the jaws scene. “29 kids go into the water, 22 come out, the ice cream man gets the rest.” makes no sense but I love it.

    Episode 226 - Body of Evidence: LIVE!

    Lawyer here, Conflict of interest issues may arise if you sleep with a new client or any client whether a relation existed before or not. In general, probably not a good idea to represent a spouse or a close family member, especially if the stakes are high. While I have helped out some close family members and friends in the past without issues, there have been a few issues when it comes down to payment, or even how much time you put into the case. Demands can get high and sometimes unrealistic just because they may think you’ll treat them extra special and use some special law you don’t use on others. So, as the gentleman said on the recording, it depends on timing of relationship, but even then would you want to? I say it depends on the case, and the attorneys level of comfort with the area of law.

    The Golden Child (1986)

    I’m ok with Batman 89, it didn’t age well for me, but without it Nolan’s Batman wouldn’t exist, and it was awesome when it came out. Same feels for Batman Returns, it was great when it came out, but overall meh today as far as a Batman movie goes. Main issues I have have with both is Batman kills, not just kills but murders. In Batman Returns, he doesn’t really give a crap when the Model falls off the roof from Penguins attack. No attempt to save her or anything. If memory serves correctly he makes out with Catwoman one minute later. In general, it’s just a weird portrayal of Bruce Wayne and Batman. Maybe it’s a version of Batman I don’t like, even though I enjoy each and every actor in both movies? Maybe I should rewatch again, will my hate grow? But I get the love for Burton during that period. I’m more of a Beetlejuice fan, as that movie holds up so damn good!

    The Golden Child (1986)

    Oh man, this was a favorite growing up, but it did not age well at all. It has moments of humor, but overall very meh. My GF and I watched it 2 nights ago after listening to the Drop Dead Fred episode. I thought, “There’s no way this won’t be great!” My memory serves me wrong. Add this to the list of movies I shouldn’t have revisited. 1. Drop Dead Fred 2. Batman Returns 3. The Golden Child

    Episode 219 - Drop Dead Fred: LIVE! (w/ Casey Wilson)

    Team sanity all the way! I watched this movie as a child and loved. I must have seen it 10-15 times on cable tv growing up. But, at some point I forgot about the movie. A few years ago I dated this girl that brought it up as one of her favorite movies, and I agreed, and decided to watch it for the first time in many years. Well less than halfway through I was like, “why did I like this?” I looked at her and could see a look of disappointment. We decided to pause the movie and get some food. When we got back home we didn’t restart the movie. I remember this night because it was when I realized revisiting some past movies that were loved should just not happen. I will add Batman returns to this list of movies not to go back to. You go digging up the past, all you’ll get is dirty.

    Episode 216.5 - Minisode 216.5

    Sweet made it to the mini! Also got to see this live in Austin. I ended up liking the movie the second time around. A lot of the cringe dialog made more sense knowing a child wrote it haha

    Episode 216 - Serenity: LIVE! (w/ Nick Kroll)

    Not a criminal law attorney, but anyone here think Patrick could get away with defense of another? Looking at the laws of Florida, assuming Patrick lives in Florida, I think his actions may constitute defense of another. The rule says you can defend yourself or another with deadly force of you reasonably believe that such conduct is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself/herself or to another. Here, his mother was getting beaten and being told, “I’ll put you in a hole.” Through a child’s perspective and experience with this step father, he could reasonably believe deadly force was necessary. The only issue is he was playing the game for who knows how long before he acted, and he seemingly was hyping himself up to do the kill. This doesn’t make it seem like self defense of another if he had time to think about his action to come, then it comes off as preplanned vs spontaneous self defense. In general, defense of another is usually applied when a person sees another person in danger and steps in to help. Self defense is a bit easier to explain as you can generally only strike back if the attack is continuous. Basically, it’s not self defense if you hit someone after they punch you and walk away. To me, this situation isn’t exactly the same knowing he essentially planned it out.

    Episode 216 - Serenity: LIVE! (w/ Nick Kroll)

    I have a few ideas about how the script came to be. 1) it was a really good script, a throw back to a classic noir type movie, but the studios interfered and wanted to be more modern. 2) it was a really good script, but the main concept got lost while filming. This happens a lot. 3) it was a really bad script that, and a producer was like, “man, this is like a 12 year old wrote a noir type movie.” Then someone else in the room said, “what if it’s a video being coded by a 12 year old and that’s why the dialog is bad?” 4) they filmed Matthew McConaughey without him knowing and they came out with this.

    It was nuts! I got there at 2:30 or so and was waiting by the Starbucks. Didn’t make it in till 3:10 or so and some chick was in my seat, and acted like it’s cool you can go somewhere else. She wouldn’t move until she was told by staff that her and her group sat one seat off. Like wtf? I had to sit next to her the whole time made the show feel awkward for a bit. Oh well haha.

    Serenity (2019)

    Austin show was a blast! So impressed with how fast paul moves around the venue. I figured they edited from question to question to kill any dead space, but they don’t need to. Paul was downstairs one moment then up in the balcony in seconds! Got to appreciate the hustle.

    Live Austin showing for tomorrow

    I’ll be going tomorrow, but just felt a little gross buying Serenity (2019) on amazon. Anyone else buy instead of rent this due to it being just 4 dollars more to rent? Oh well, time to watch a movie I had no interest in watching. The things I do for HDTGM.
  12. Not sure if it’s been mentioned, but there needs to be a Seth Rogen werewolf movie called High Moon. I imagine a lose adaptation of An American Werewolf in London, but instead a group of friends go on a hike in the mountains of Colorado for a bachelor party. While camping at night Rogen and Franco step to the side to smoke some weed knowing their friend Jay, doesn’t approve of it even though it’s legal. While smoking out, they hear noises and are attacked by a wolf. Jay and a few other friends here the commotion and fiend Franco mangled to death and Rogen bloodied but alive. Rogen turns into a werewolf, and Franco is ghost that presents himself to Rogen only. Id like to see Danny McBride as a antagonist Werewolf hunter, with a team including Paul and Jason Like i said pretty close to American Werewolf. I’m not too creative, but basically thought I want to see that when someone said high moon as a movie title during the podcast
  13. I don’t know what you guys are talking about, not recommending this movie. I started it at 1am and have been hooked the whole way through. Got to say though, worst bad guy cops ever. They do a killing out in the open, and botch the whole process. Feel like they would have messed it up even if Chris Evans didn’t get involved. Also, I would have enjoyed the movie if Kim Basinger kept killing people with her biology knowledge and apologized each time.

    Episode 200 - Action Jackson: LIVE!

    Long time listener, first time posting. Was any one else concerned about Seth’s laughter? I thought he was going to die!
