    Episode 88 — Hurdler Backpack

    I love the idea of Gary Busey talking to fish. So much. So much. P.S. As loathe as I am to defend a Yankee, a lot of restaurants allow for you (or even make it a specialty) to bring your own ingredients, especially seafood, for them to cook. Coastal resort towns and whatever have them a lot since there are a bunch of fishermen-tourists with no kitchens to cook their food. It's a win-win for the restaurants since they get free stuff and get to charge you extra for the service. I'm assuming Jeter was at one of these places, not a TGI Friday's or something.

    Hobo with a Shotgun

    This movie is fucking crazy and crazy awesome. Every minute brought a smile to my face.

    Domino (2005)

    I have an enormous crush on Keira Knightley, she is topless in this movie, and I STILL hate this movie. I endorse this movie being discussed on the podcast.

    A Thousand Words

    Considering the greatness of Murphy's early career and the absolute dreck he's produced in the last 15 or so years, he definitely deserves an episode. Any of his recent films, really. Does 'Vampire in Brooklyn' count as "recent"?

    Episode 86 — Flat Cats

    Oh goodness, a Billy Bass-style flat cat singing Tom Waits songs is both the perfect 'Hoarders' souvenir AND the perfect piece of Tom Waits merchandise. Let's make it happen.

    Episode 32 — 88 Minutes

    Pete Holmes shouldn't feel bad for thinking that Leelee Sobieski might be blind. I got that impression too, from the exact scene he mentioned. I just dismissed it and thought that it might have been a cut plot line from a very early version of the movie or something. Or just because NOTHING in this movie makes sense.

    Episode 24.1 — Superman III Live: Bonus!

    Jack O'Halloran must be real tough, what with threatening accountants and Juilliard graduates and avoiding traffic tickets because of who his dad was. Don't get me wrong, I thought the episode was great, it's just that O'Halloran seems to be... embellishing his stories in order to sell his book, which is fine. It's clearly being marketed as a pure novel by the publisher, so characterizing it as non-fiction strikes me as misleading. I'm not claiming I know his life story, just that he strikes me as one of those guys who tells great stories, but you take what he says with a grain of salt.

    What Am I Thinking?

    You people are fun-killers, I thoroughly enjoy the game when it is played. I don't think it interrupts momentum any more than any of the other segments.

    The Toxic Avenger (1984)

    A shitty movie, indeed, but more of the MST3K variety. I guess that gets to the question of what you want the podcast to be. Personally, I think the podcast works best when skewering awful studio films like The Smurfs or The Last Airbender. Those movies have hundreds of millions of dollars to be good, Troma films have about twenty bucks.

    Southland Tales (2006)

    Foxtrot's video is an example why I adore (not "like," per se, but have affection for) this movie. I don't like Timberlake and I don't like The Killers and I don't indulge in any sort of drug, but that musical number is so fucking ridiculous in its very conception, that I can't help but love whatever whacked-out, hallucinogen-induced logic that contributed to its existence. Southland Tales is like the Crank 2 of arthouse movies. Yes please.

    Avatar (2009)

    The fact that this movie and Titanic made ungodly amounts of money with such formulaic nonsense kind of makes me hate humans. Also, Avatar's success, along with that of the Transformers movies, kind of proves America loves racism. Eviscerate the fuck out of this movie. Please.

  17. On the one hand, I hate anyone telling me what I can and can't say. On the other hand, my mom told me this story once when I was complaining about PC stuff I thought bullcrap. In college (this was in the 70s), she would go jogging and people would yell shit out of their cars as they drove by like, "hey bitch, wanna get screwed?!?!" You know, PC can't be ALL bad if it stopped people from saying shit like that to random women. Of course, I know it hasn't stopped everyone from saying that stuff, but still. I am also keenly aware that describing something as "retarded" is a different matter entirely from directly insulting someone. I also feel that people have the right to think whatever they want, even if they find something I do offensive. Simultaneously, I feel they should maybe grow a pair and let it go. So... um... I guess this post is just a series of thoughts curving back on themselves? You're welcome?

    The Boondock Saints (1999)

    I hate this movie almost as much as I hate the fact that it inspired a cult following fervent enough to spawn a sequel. Gross.

    Conan the Barbarian

    As a lover of the original film and Howard's stories (platonically and romantically), I would welcome any evisceration of this piece of nonsense.

    Fanboys

    Ahhh, come on. I'm never going to say this movie is exactly good, but it's not terrible either. There are major structural problems and way too many of the jokes are merely Star Wars references (many of which stretch the definition of the word "joke"). Still, I think it has its own kind of charm, as it seems to have been made with genuine enthusiasm and effort. Would I watch it again? No. I don't hate it either. From Transformers 2 to Birdemic, there are plenty of more suitable candidates for "worst movie."

    Shoot 'em Up (2007)

    It also has some very talented people (Owen, Giamatti) doing really pointless crap. A true piece of shit, indeed.

    Max Payne (2008)

    I love the video game. It's basically genre pastiche + dream sequences+ killing things in slow motion, but it still tells a more coherent story than, as you said, this garbage-fest.

    Southland Tales (2006)

    This movie is definitely insane, but I kind of find it enjoyable for how fucking ballsy it is. I mean, it's definitely not good or a competent piece of film-making, but I'd take Southland Tales over Transformers.
