    Pieces (1982)

    Guys! Guys! You guys! I just watched this and it is amazing. I haven't been on these boards in a long time, but once I saw this movie... OK, here's a review I wrote in another forum. I feel like Eli Roth somehow willed this movie into existence. This is a wonderfully bad exploitation slasher flick. I mean, super bad and super great because of it. The film is largely dubbed despite the cast of English speakers (mostly, I think), which looks really weird. I mean, some times it dubbing but matches perfectly with the lip sync and sometimes it's clearly off. The film has some red herrings, the biggest and most wonderful being Willard, the caretaker, who does all he can to be weird and suspicious. Also, there's the bad acting, the clearly unhealthy view of women (most of them feel like they are around to be gawked at, screwed or slaughtered and that includes the "strong" female lead) and just the weirdness of the whole thing. The three best scenes: 1. The strong female undercover cop is stalking around the university campus where people are getting killed. You think she might run into the killer. Then this happens. I should also tell you, this scene makes LESS SENSE IN CONTEXT! 2. The ending. It won't be a spoiler to tell you the killer's end game was to use the pieces of women he collected to make some kind of doll. He's not Frankenstein or anything, he's just sowing body parts together. After our heroes kill the villain, they decide to leave the room with the mosaic corpse in it. Then the corpse just ups and claws his groin bloody while the lead character makes a stupid face. The end. 3. This. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nQKhdxhQMI This movie is a bad movie delight. I'm sure they've already selected and watched their Halloween movie but maybe for next year... PLEASE DO PIECES!
  2. This is mostly going to be movies from my youth. #5. Basically almost any Friday the 13, particularly between 4-X (Part VIII has the best trailer.) #4. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace - This aired on TV way too often. #3. Caddyshack 2 - With Mannequin 2 done, this other recurring favourite from my childhood needs to get done. #2. The Ewok Adventure: Caravan of Courage - I loved this movie as a kid. Please do it (and the Battle for Endor, which has Wilford Brimley). #1. The Peanut Butter Solution - A kid goes into a ghost house, ghosts scare the hair off him, the ghosts tell him a secret hair growth formula, the hair won't stop growing... and then things get crazy.

    Ed (1996)

    This might be apocrypha, but I remember hearing Lisa Kudrow sneaked out during the premiere. Oh, that is a hideous fucking chimp effect.

    Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)

    If they do this one, it feels like THIS is the episode to do with some MST3k alums like Joel, Mike, Kevin, Frank, Mary Jo (apparently the first episode she worked on and it immediately made her consider she made a big mistake) or Trace.
  5. OMISSION In case no one brought this up: I was curious about the name of the country/state/city/whatever Hauptmann-Koenig, as something about it seemed like an in-joke. I looked it up and the best I could do was find a reference to a character with that name in a passage of a book called Voices of the Wind by Evelyn Anthony, which was set in WWII (Koenig is an SS officer who is caught philandering and demoted in rank) and published in 1985, meaning that the screenwriter may have read it before writing the film. Does anyone else have any other theories? Also, in the scene in which Jessie is watching the tapes, she says "Look, your mother gave me all these people's lives." That's super creepy, but even more if she is being literal. Remember, she also refers to his story ID as a "magic card". Also, remember her reaction to seeing herself on film? Absolute terror. She things these people are taking the souls of people and putting them in the box. But she doesn't mind it happening to other people, apparently. That's Count Terry Kiser level of creepy.

    Episode 139.5 - Minisode 139.5

    I am really looking forward to watching this one. Mannequin 2 and Caddyshack 2 played over and over on MITV (Maritime Television, now Global TV) so being a kid with no taste, I watched both many times. This is the first one in a while where I need to watch the movie and comment on these boards. Looking forward to the nostalgia rush.

    The Fantastic Four (1994)

    Well, hold on. Not all of the filmmakers knew that... the actors still totally believed in the film. There's a preview for the documentary about it where they talk about how they don't appreciate it being viewed as a punchline. Which is kind of sad.

    The Flintstones (1994)

    This might add something to an episode about the first one. It would be great to get one of those writers on the show, too. http://www.avclub.com/article/read-why-35-screenwriters-worked-flintstones-movie-223656

    The Octagon (1980)

    Yeah, me and a friend watched this on late night TV a few years back. I remember it being a fun, dumb movie.

    EPISODE 127 — The Magic Word is Bitchass

    Looking forward to that carpet getting a lot more use. I've never played Advanced D & D (just 3rd and 4th edition) so is that a AD&D tool or did Blaine bring in one from another version and made adjustments (or made it up wholecloth). I'm liking this game alright, but I miss our characters getting a chance to interact with other characters who aren't dicks.

    The Wizard (1989)

    Just bringing this up again, because I would love to see it. I still maintain the Brothers Chaps would make for great guests (and Matt's worked with Paul before) but the Indoor Kids would also be great. Please let's see this one happen.

    Thank you Dan & Steve!

    I am so glad to see these guys come in. I just with Rick could come in. Not to replace anyone, but I would love it to be a six host show again and Rick did a great job. Good luck to SARC, Sarah and Gerry and while I'm glad you guys are busy with your projects, I hope to see you all again soon.

    Episode 111 — Fudge Son

    With Battle Beast, I think you needed to shine a light in their backs to see their element, right? Also, am I the only one who remembers Z-Bots? They aren't the most amazing, but for whatever reason, me and a friend really got into them.

    I'd love to see Matt Chapman (co-creator and voices for Homestar Runner, writer of Gravity Falls, Wander Over Yonder, The Aquabats Supershow) to either discuss an extremely 80's movie (Jaws 3-D, The Garbage Pail Kids, Megaforce) or perhaps the infamously bad movie for tiny kids Oogieloves and the Big Balloon Adventure. I know movies for the tiniest of children doesn't seem like a worthy target but it has such a bizarrely cynical backstory and Matt has a history with shows for young kids (working on the critically acclaimed Yo! Gabba! Gabba!)
