    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    By the way, in case anyone was curious how well SpaceJam.com scales to a 5k monitor...

    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    I am simultaneously thrilled that I finally have unique information to impart on an HDTGM movie and horrified that this is that movie... Paul mentioned that Chuck Jones hated this movie. But you're not going to find an interview where he said so, because he never did, publicly. The news of Chuck Jones hating Space Jam actually originated with my friend and I. We were 17 when Space Jam came out and were (are) huge Looney Tunes fanatics. We bought and read every book we could on the subject... and Chuck Jones was our idol. We also happened to have a mutual friend: Mike Peters, the cartoonist behind the comic strip "Mother Goose and Grimm." One day, when we were at Mike's house, he surprised us by calling Chuck Jones on the phone and letting us speak to him on speakerphone for about 20 minutes. Space Jam had come out not too long before and we HATED IT. We also noticed that Chuck Jones was apparently not consulted or involved with the film in any way, despite recently having been given a lifetime appointment at WB animation. We could find nothing about his thoughts on it, so we asked him directly. His immediate response was: "Oh, it was terrible!" and went on to talk about how he had spent decades with these characters and said how painful it was to see them all acting almost completely out of character, doing and saying things they never would. After the call, Mike told us that Chuck disparaged the movie while giving a talk on the lot and was actually removed from the event! In 2008, Trevor wrote a blog post about our experience talking with Chuck, and that post has been cited all over the internet, spreading the news of Chuck's hate wide. Trevor has since become YouTube's "Looney Tunes Critic," a project he launched with a two-part video called "Space Jam Stinks," breaking down how awful this movie is over the course of an hour. Having argued with millennials for the last decade about what a piece of garbage this movie is, I am SO HAPPY that HDTGM tackled it. It's nice to have Paul, Jason and June firmly in my corner on this one.

    The Cell (2000)

    So, as I write this, this movie is playing in the background in my office at work. I had forgotten it existed and now I am reminded that it is a perfect contender for HDTGM.

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    Okay, I haven’t listened to this episode yet because I’m still struggling through the movie. I mean, do I have to? Am I going to miss anything if I leave the last 51 minutes unwatched? Can I please just stop?

    Terminal (2018)

    I just finished watching this. I came here to beg for it to be done on HDTGM so that the time I just put into that piece of dreck can have served some purpose.

    Late to the game, but all caught up.

    I did not watch all the movies... but I kind of want to? I think I might have a problem...
  7. So, I was only recently introduced to HDTGM, but I got Stitcher Premium and have now listened to all 215 episodes (watched Serenity last night and listening to 216 today) in a matter of a few months. I decided to wait until I had listened to them all before joining the forums, so here I am. Now I just need to get used to waiting for new episodes.

    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)

    I just listened to all 215 episodes of HDTGM over the course of the last couple months and this is the one movie that really stood out to me as missing from the show. It is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen and is perfectly suited to HDTGM. Also, on a side note, I am currently working with the man who wrote this movie and every day I try to get up the nerve to ask him about it. I just don’t know how to broach the subject honestly without risk of offense. Anyway, yeah, they for-real need to do this movie!!
