    Replicas (2019)

    I saw this and its not memorable and certainly not good but easy to watch and liked the general idea behind it. The Keanu bot is certainly HDTGM worthy, but I will say the film itself is not.

    Shakes the Clown (1991)

    Directed by and starring Bobcat Goldwait, it is a dark comedy about a depressed alcoholic clown who is framed for murder. It includes a very young Adam Sandler and an uncredited Robin Williams cameo. It has been called the "Citizen Kane of alcoholic clown movies." It only made $115,000 in theaters. I have not seen this, but it seems like the type of film that could certainly qualify for HDTGM. For anyone who has seen it, what did you think of it?!?

    Artemis Fowl (2020)

    I haven't seen the film nor read the series of books it is based on, but it cost $125 million and was supposed to start a movie franchise. It is directed by Kenneth Branagh, but COVID-19 made Disney dump it on Disney+ and the reviews have not been scathing, rather that the entire film is just dull and hard to understand.

    Yellowbeard (1983)

    I had never heard of this movie but I was talking with a friend of mine yesterday and he mentioned that he watched this movie a lot growing up and that its really bad and has a very talented cast. I looked it up and Eric Idle said it is by far the worst movie he has ever done and my friend said the movie is not appropriate for kids and quite wild. He seemed to have fond memories of it. As someone who hasn't seen it, does it deserve to be done or is it actually an enjoyable film?

    Episode 241.5 — Prequel to Episode 242

    So Roger Ebert says one way to determine if a film is going to be bad: Box Rule: Useful rule-of-thumb about movie advertisements that have a row of little boxes across the bottom, each one showing the face of a different international star and the name of a character (e.g., “Curt Jurgens as the Commandant”). The rule is: Automatically avoid such films. Example: “'The Cassandra Crossing,” “'Force 10 from Navarone,” and most films made from Agatha Christie novels. Well look at the Don't Her It's Me movie poster. Apparently everyone did know this as nobody saw this film and I had never ever heard of it until the other day in the mini episode.

    D.C. Cab (1983)

    I just found out that Mr. T had a starring movie role and this is it. I have to find this streaming somewhere as it sounds unreal!

    Collision Course (1989)

    This movie is bonkers and a legitimate how did this movie get made? Other than Jay Leno starring in an action comedy, I don't know how it got past that and into development, especially since Jay Leno, you know, can't act at all.
  9. Available now on Amazon Prime, starring Henry Cavill, Ben Kingsley, Stanley Tucci, Alexandra Daddario, and Nathan Fillion. A weathered Lieutenant (Henry Cavill), his police force, and a local vigilante are all caught up in a dangerous scheme involving a recently arrested, troubled man who's linked to years of female abductions and murders. This is a dark and atmospheric film set in Minnesota during the winter, that seemed a bit dull in plenty of points as a slow burn, but also seemed like a lot of sub plots got left on the editing floor for some reason. The movie doesn't have anything new to offer, just an extra long episode of Criminal Minds basically. Henry Cavill tries to act, but as much as they ruffle his hair and beard he doesn't come off as weathered nor genuine. They do not let the Tooch get loose, Nathan Fillion is barely in it, the police are pretty darn stupid at most points and the twist is not exactly what I expected, but not quite as shocking as they make it out to be. There are no set action pieces to speak of and a movie that deletes itself from your brain while you are watching it. Has anyone else checked it out on Amazon Prime?
  10. Did you ever ask him about it? It really should be done by HDTGM, it is on Hulu through the end of June 2020 so get in there and watch it before it disappears. So much chaos behind the scenes and what looks like unfinished CGI and just a movie jamming as many characters as possible into two hours, which caused Sean Connery to retire. So unfortunate all around. Could have been fun if done correctly.
  11. Backstory: In 2004 NBC aired the Reality Show "Next Action Star" which wasn't a bad idea of a bad reality show. I remember enjoying it as a kid when it aired. They had the contestants do various stunts and short scenes each episode and a panel of judges voted them off. The male and female winners were awarded starring roles in a TV Movie to air on NBC. That movie was... Bet Your Life A man makes a bet in Las Vegas with some men (led by Billy Zane) who want to kill him. He bets he can stay alive for 24 hours, then comes to Cleveland to elude them. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0381980/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_49 Now this movie with Billy Zane hunting down the two winners of the show was a hugeeeee disappointment to me. Not only did it have such shoddy production value, but the female winner was possibly the worst actress I have ever seen. I don't know how she won the show as she cannot act a lick. Her career since has evolved into stunt work so there is that. But Billy Zane chewing scenery while chasing these two contest winners through Cleveland (?!?) is so bad it has to be seen to be believed, much worse than even expected TV movie quality. It is directed by Louis Morneau of the 1999 film Bats, for some reason. From what I can find it is only available on Amazon as a DVD, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0013NAP0S?ref_=imdbref_tt_wbr_amazon&tag=imdbtag_tt_wbr_amazon-20 though hopefully it comes to streaming soon, maybe on the soon to launch Peacock. Even though it didn't go to theaters, I feel it is quite worthy of HDTGM. Does anyone else remember this reality show of TV movie from 2004?

    Volcano (1997)

    Apologies, Volcano is not, I repeat not available on Amazon Prime. The JustWatch app said it was and I went to watch it and it wanted me to pay. I believe they got it mixed up with some documentary called Volcano. I don't want to pay $3 - $4 to watch it. Remember it as a teenager, someone jumping from an ambulance into the lava and his legs melting from the feet up. Other than that it will be like a brand new movie to me.
  14. Watched this over the weekend, its a very lame attempt at a horror franchise. It stars all pretty young people like a CW show, where everyone is downloading an app that counts down to the moment of your death. It could have had some fun Final Destination type vibes, but it really didn't. The best part by far was Tom Segura's character, which is so out of place like he is going a completely different movie but is hilarious! I'm not sure this is bad enough in the right way to be featured on the podcast, but it was a lame attempt for someone to make a cheap buck at the theaters during Halloween. They don't even explain it at the end other than to tease the sequel that will probably (hopefully) never happen.

    Volcano (1997)

    I have been looking for ways to watch this on streaming and it amazingly its on Amazon Prime now!!!!! Next time I have a movie night, this is going on first! I watched Dante's Peak a few months ago and would have loved to pair it with this, but I just couldn't wait. I wish I had!
