    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    I'd like to discuss the temperature on the ice planet. As Stella and Elle are about to go to the surface of the planet; Akton tells them to hurry because once the Sun sets the temperature will drop thousands of degrees. THIS IS PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE. Let's assume the planet is similar to the climate of Antarctica. Average Temperature on Antarctica ranges from -76 Farenheit (or -60 Celsius/or 213 Kelvin) to 14 Farenheit(or -10 Celsius/or 263 Kelvin). The coldest possible temperature acheivable, anywhere in the universe, also referred to as Absolute Zero, is -459 Farenheit (or -273 Celsius/or 0 Kelvin). Meaning, at -76 Farenheit, it is not physically possible for the temperature to drop more than about 400 degrees on the Farenheit scale. Now, it is possible for temperatures to change by thousands of degrees. Let's say the surface temperature of a given planet is 2,000 Farenheit(or 1093 Celsius/or 1366 Kelvin), it would be possible for the temperature to drop another 2459 degrees (on the Farenheit scale in this instance). I think we can all agree, though, if the surface temperature was 2,000 Farenheit(or 1093 Celsius/or 1366 Kelvin), our heroes would not only be incinerated, but a planet of that temperature would not be covered in ice but would instead resemble Venus (a planet experiencing a runaway greenhouse effect). So, unless they're using an entirely differenct temperature scale (which is not introduced), this movie just doesn't make sense. Just because of that one fact, though. Rest of the movie is on-point!

    HDTGM movie defenders

    I might say Demolition Man, too. If, for no other reason, than the epiphany that Sandy B's character may actually be Sly's daughter (TIC?).

    Event Horizon (1997)

    YEEESSSSS! Do. This. Movie. Best decompression effect in cinema history. This movie also gave birth to a demonstration on what it means to travel through a wormhole/Einstein-Rosen Bridge. A demonstration repeated in Deja Vu (2006), and Interstellar (2014).
  4. Why is more attention not being given to this post?
  5. Can we talk about the "imaginary" friend, Velcro Head (played by Clark Niederjohn). Is it me or was giving the one black kid a white actor to portray their imaginary friend, who appeared to have the most fake looking weave ever, super racist? They may as well have put him in blackface and called it a day.
  6. Don't disagree with the thesis here. Just thought I'd note that Carrie Fischer did seem have totally forgiven Lizzie after she got the monster insurance check for her floating condo(?) after it sank.
  7. I agree on the assessment that June & Jason are judging themes vs structure/technical qualities. Regarding the fall back of them saying "it's only a movie"; I have to believe this is a product of their improvisational background. They (#TeamFred) are fully aware that when people say "it's only a movie", that this is a crutch of all crutches that people use when they know there is clearly no defense. I believe #TeamFred caught onto how divisive this conversation was getting and just decided to run with it (i.e.; Jason giggles almost every time he tries to defend their position). These are the mental gymnastics I have conducted to explain their rigidness on the discussion. Mainly because Jason is my spirit animal. Therefore, I live and die with him. Go #TeamFred (?)

    Superman 3:bonus video?

    Is this the video you're referring to? Hope this is what you were looking for.

    Kickboxer (1989)

    This movie is begging to be covered. It has the marks of a classic HDTGM episode in the making; - sweet splits - a training montage - super sexy dancing - boxing with glass covered knuckles - & 3 three words just waiting to rattle the walls of Largo, or some unsuspecting theatre/lounge, "NOK SU KOW! NOK SU KOW! NOK SU KOW!" (never mind it means The White Warrior)
  10. Come on people let's really start talking about this one. A movie that could very well be the most homoerotic slasher film of all time. Who doesn't remember pulling out the classic game "Probe"? This one is far overdue.

    The Master of Disguise (2002)

    So glad this movie is being covered. I feel vindicated, as this was the first movie I ever walked out of. I was such a huge fan of Carvey and remember feeling depressed about how bad this movie was. Thankfully, I have recovered. Can't wait to force myself through this.
