    Episode 42.5 β€” Minisode 42.5

    Fuck this movie. 21% on Rotten Tomatoes? Anything more than 1% doesn't make sense. Way to combine things that are awesome (westerns, Steampunk, and science), do a terrible job at all of them, and ruin various combinations thereof for future enjoyment. #unnecessary hate
  2. Downloaded and listened to. It was great to hear how bits from the podcast are incorporated into the Sklars' stand-up, especially with the killer back-and-forth they have. Mark Wahlberg vs. Jesse Ventura was EPIC.

    Episode 107 β€” A Tale of Two Richards

    Amazing episode. The Sklars should do a workout DVD with Simmons where they pick all the music and Simmons choreographs the workout routines. The brothers would be on-camera and workout out, of course.

    Show us your Earwolf swag!!

    Here I am introducing my dad to the calming shores. I like how I look drunk... but don't drink.

    Episode 166 β€” Farts and Procreation 2

    Holy crap, those covers are amazing. Also, no matter what Harris does in the future, "You gotta keep it fresh to death in the after-after" has secured my eternal love and admiration.

    Episode 40.5 β€” Minisode 40.5

    I would just like to say I still love White Zombie. Why you gotta hate, Paul? Why?
  7. If anyone were to look at my posts on here and see the effusive praise I have heaped upon the Sklars and their podcast (which is still much LESS praise than they deserve), he or she will see I am a huge fan of The Country. However, if it pleases the Sklarbrotration Court, I would like to offer some constructive criticism: I don't think the video added anything to the experience of this particular podcast. If anything, it detracted from it since, watching it, I felt like I missed out on several of the batting stances and, more importantly, the visual quality was, frankly, very poor. Since the Brothers are talking about doing another live podcast, I would very much appreciate an improvement in the video quality and more visual elements translated to the video download. Was it a great audio podcast? Yes. Did I enjoy the presence and the music of The Sheepdogs? Double yes. Will I download (and be willing to pay for) more live Sklarbro episodes? Undoubtedly. I just hope the video is less grainy next time.

    Episode 40 β€” Judge Dredd

    If there is an official How Did This Get Made drinking game, could one of the triggers be every time June is confused by a rudimentary plot point in an insane/incompetent movie? Rob Schneider is covered in spaghetti = he controls robots with pasta. Time to drink.

    Episode 39.5 β€” Minisode 39.5

    I love it when a movie's cast combines award-winning or otherwise excellent actors like Diane Lane, Max Von Sydow, and JΓΌrgen Prochnow with motherflippin' Rob Schneider... in a Sylvester Stallone movie. A sure sign of trash if there ever was one. Also, since this movie opens with images of the physical comic book, I expect it will be a respectable, faithful adaptation of the source material, right guys? On the same level as, say, David Lean's 1946 version of 'Great Expectations.' ...right?

    Episode 100 β€” Puh-Pillow Pets

    It's almost weird hearing Armisen's genuine voice since I'm so used to him changing it for a character. It's so gentle and airy and almost feminine. He's like the guy selling scented oils in a sketch about at Bed, Bath, and Beyond or something. I think that makes his voice work all the more impressive, since the unassuming nature of his personality is so pleasant that it seems more of a stretch, hearing this, for him to play those really out-there and aggressive characters.

    Episode 98.5 β€” Sklarbro County 3

    The Sklars are perpetual motion entertainment machines: the more they put out, the better things get.

    Episode 38 β€” Bad Ass

    This interview was great. I'll take my Danny Trejo in any way I can. Even when he's in awful movies, his presence is always a delight. He can be menacing or funny in pretty much anything, but I think the way he looks kind of blinds people to the fact that he's actually a talented performer. Anyway, about Godzilla, I'll just point out something that infuriated me even as a 14 year old seeing this movie in theaters: the monster is CONSTANTLY getting lost by expert, hi-tech-wielding military personnel, and even when they find Godzilla, they manage to MISS him (with BULLETS) more often than they hit him. Also, what is the point of Mayor Ebert? I mean, he looks like Roger Ebert... but he bears no behavioral similarities to the film critic. He's just loud, likes candy, and is pretty jewy. Does the real Ebert obsess over candy or something? Final thing: How many nerdy-but-very-handsome scientists have appeared in Roland Emmerich movies? Bonus if they have a non-black or non-Latino, but still ethnic, background. There's Matthew Broderick's Greek Dr. Tatopolous or Jeff Goldblum and his Jewish-stereotype-parade dad in 'Independence Day.' Roland Emmerich: anti-Semite?

    Episode 56 β€” Twins

    The Sklars are great examples of humanity, no matter what their genetic materials are or how they fit into the nature vs. nurture debate. Pertaining to Mr. Huntsberger's beach defecation embarrassment, I would never think to judge. Although I have never experience an analogous anal egress, there have been times when even the most disgusting of public facilities have been greeted by my bowls as unadulterated miracles. Also, I'm pretty sure being in such a state, seeing a restroom, and finding it locked is far more unsatisfying that having to sneeze and then not sneezing... though that is pretty disappointing too.

    Episode 97.5 β€” Sklarbro County 2

    This episode reminds me of why I started listening to The Country in the first place. Great guests with a great rapport with the brothers, great comedy, and hilarious ribbing of the ridiculousness of sports. Good work to all.

    Episode 97 β€” Self Cheerleader

    I loved the awkwardness Morgan Murphy experienced when she saw Blake Griffin. That had me rolling. Also, the return of the emails was a great addition. If I may add a bit of snark, when the Brothers said that Murphy was a writer on '2 Broke Girls,' I couldn't help but think, "oh, so that show is your fault."

    Flash Gordon (1980)

    I legitimately love this movie. It's really one of the ultimate pinnacles of 80s cheese because it doesn't even have to conform with any sort of earthbound reality. You know, the corniness of the 1930s serials the film hearkens to combined with the neon brainwaves of late-twentieth-century imaginations. Fuck yes! Queen's music, Max Von Sydow, Timothy Dalton, AND Brian Blessed. How DID this get made? I don't know, but I'm so happy it did.

    Bad Summer Movies!

    Die Hard 3 is actually pretty amazing. A big fun-time summer movie... even if it was clearly intended to be a Lethal Weapon movie instead. It would be a great episode if they got one of the original screenwriters or somebody to comment on how it transformed from one franchise to another, but otherwise, I think HDTGM has bigger fish to fry... like Godzilla. Holy crap, was a piece of big-budget feces that thing is. Also, I stand behind John Carter, and not just because he has a shapely behind. I like that movie!

    Episode 96.5 β€” Sklarbro County 1

    Nothing brightens my ears like a stroll through the land of Sklarbro, be it County or Country. That police chase story was delightfully nutballs. I look forward to the return of listener emails. Read that stuff and make fun of us!

    Episode 96 β€” Hotzi

    This is true. Also, the Deity Draft was by far my favorite thing Jesse Thorn has done on the show. So funny. I loved the Mantzoukas interview as well. And finally, the best thing about this episode is, obviously, the prospect of MORE SKLARS. Nice.
  20. I just wanted to say that Mantzoukas fucking kills it in this movie. Not only does he make one-liners like "I clean semen out of laptops" hilarious, he gives this "inspirational" speech that's genuinely crazy, heartfelt (for the character), and hilarious. I know he has an improv background, but from just a total acting standpoint, he does a great job as well. So... I guess this post is a rare snark-free message board moment for me when I simply say congratulation on a job well done. I really enjoyed the movie, both as a whole and Jason's performance in it. Everyone here should see it.

    Questions for Danny Trejo

    This is the greatest news in podcasting since... I don't know, since headphones? Anyway, as a fan of Trejo's, I'm aware he's had a violent past and has spent some time in prison. This may be getting too heady or serious for the podcast, but I've always wondered what it's like for him to play criminals, tough guys, and master killers, and to have made a career out of it. I know he has been separate from the criminal world for decades, but I'm curious how those past experiences influence him now, in his performances and in his life. He's always come off as such a nice guy in interviews, that the distance between both his former self (the little I know about it) and the characters he plays is sometimes pretty remarkable. If that's too Inside the Actors Studio-ish, then I'd like to know about how he feels about comedy vs. drama or action. I think he has really underrated comedic timing and can be very entertaining even in the goofiest of movies. The best part about 'Bubble Boy,' that's for sure!
  22. The more examples that are cited in this thread, the closer my soul will get to dying.

    Episode 36 β€” On the Line

    Thanks to this thread, the most confusing aspect of this movie is now the knowledge that people find the term "wigger" offensive.

    Episode 95 - Bench an Engineer

    I love letting the guests in on the takes. I always thought it kind of strange knowing the guest was just sitting there, waiting for his or her turn to talk, then being asked to give their "Take on the Takes." This gets especially strange if the thing the guest most wanted to comment on was an aspect talked about early in the first take, which means the guest would have to take notes on what he or she wanted to say, then have to jog everybody's memory back to before the two WACKY sports stories were wrapped up. It... just seems more economical this way. While we're talking about format, I really, really miss emails being read on the show. I think they were my favorite segment because it was the most direct interaction between the Skalrs and the fans of the show. So many of the emails were hilarious in themselves, so it was great to hear the brothers riff on already-good material.

    Rock Star (2001)

    Oh hey, Jennifer Aniston is playing somebody's girlfriend. What a surprise. I wonder if she manages to be as uninteresting as Wahlberg is in everything else he's ever done. I imagine the chemistry between them is about as volatile and exciting as the chemical bonds in one of the noble gases. BOOM! Periodic Table Slam!
