    Ep. 249 — Deadly Mile High Club

    With the exception of some high performance military jets, planes are designed to be inherently stable. Turning off the autopilot wouldn't send the plane into a sudden roll or make it pitch back and forth like a fishing boat in a rough sea. It would just mean it wouldn't adjust course for wind gusts. Granted on one of the passes of Tanya's head, the plane's jet engine noise transforms into the sound of a World War 1 biplane's piston engine, so it's almost like they actively tried to be inaccurate.

    The investors in Santa Barbara would never accept her paying Jake more money.

    Episode 247 - 2:22 (Live in Portland)

    Another good one is a racing documentary called "1" that looks back to the most dangerous era in grand prix racing and the efforts made to improve the almost nonexistent safety features of 1960s racing.

    Episode 247 - 2:22 (Live in Portland)

    I know Dylan thought he saw the day he died, but he really saw the day everyone missed their train. The movie showed the train on the board as being scheduled for 2:22, so it should be just about ready to pull away from the platform as they all mill about in the Great Hall. Also did the aerial ballet have 2 superhuman performers or was it only like 15 minutes long? I have trouble believing 2 acrobats would have the physical stamina to extend a 10 minute circus act into a 90 minute show.

    Episode 246 - Swordfish: LIVE!

    Realistically the car should have already stalled when Travolta does the handbrake turn and stops. It's not like anyone is pressing on the clutch. It would be a surprise that Jackman could even get it into neutral to start it then find 1st gear.

    Episode 246 - Swordfish: LIVE!

    Why do they even bother to spread the stolen money evenly over 5 accounts? It would be understandable if they split it over hundreds of accounts, but $1.9 billion deposits are going to raise red flags just as quickly as a $9.5 billion lump sum.

    Episode 246 - Swordfish: LIVE!

    This movie isn't really good with money. When Ginger gives the hacker the cash, we can clearly see there is only 4 packs of bills each marker $10,000, yet Ginger says it's $100,000. At the other extreme, in order for $400 million to grow to $9.5 billion in 15 years, it would have to collect interest at an average annual rate of 23%. If it grew at the actual rate of inflation, it would have ended out around $650 million.

    Episode #245 - Money Plane

    When it comes to the premise of the Money Plane as a flying casino in international airspace, there is, surprise, surprise, a fatal flaw. Every aircraft flying internationally is required to be registered to a particular country. If that aircraft is in a nation's airspace, the nation it is flying over has jurisdiction, but if it is over international waters the nation the plane is registered to has jurisdiction. Of course, none of that matters since the major criminals boarding the plane would all be rounded up in the airport since Money Plane apparently has it's own gate at a commercial airport.

    Episode 242 - The Boyfriend School

    Not only does he go along with a clearly manipulative plan, he sleeps with a woman who isn't actually giving consent to Gus. This goes beyond fluffing up your image to get with someone. He knows, or at least has reason to believe, she wouldn't sleep with him if she knew who he was and still goes for it.

    Episode 242 - The Boyfriend School

    The dance they were doing was supposed to be the Shag, which people have been doing in the Carolinas since the 1940s. Of course, there version of the dance was about as accurate as the Southern accents that no main characters bothered with despite apparently being born and raised around Charleston. If it wasn't for a couple minor characters, this could have been Chicago.

    Episode 240: Megaforce LIVE from Montreal!

    On the subject of the "Nazi guy," I think it was actually supposed to be a Soviet agent sent to provide propaganda as part of a deal to fund the warlord. That would be why he insisting that he has to finish reading before the attack.
  12. Am I the only one that finds the very existence of Alpha to be depressing? I mean we start out with a space station that is meant to bring about harmony among nations and when it gets too big we just jettison it and all of its inhabitants out into deep space with no hope of ever returning. Is there no need to keep the scientists and engineers that would be occupying such a station around or was it serving no direct purpose at all? Second, as beautiful as the planet Mul was, there is clearly a horrifying monster species living on that world. Giant seashells don't exist without giant mollusks to produce them. With very little vegetation, there must be carnivorous snails weighing several tons roaming around in search for food.

    Driven (2001)

    The fan of bad movies in me wants to see this again. The racing fan in me wants to vomit a little in my mouth as it gets every wrong in the most absurd ways possible.

    The People Under the Stairs (1991)

    I'd love to see this movie get done, but it would even be better if the TV dubbed version could be found. Nothing like Ving Rhames yelling "Shucks!" as a dog attacks him.

    American Psycho 2 (2002)

    My understanding is that this didn't start out as a sequel to American Psycho at all. The scenes at the beginning of the film were added into the script when the studio decided to tie the two films together.
