    EPISODE 113.5 — Minisode 113.5

    A baby Triceratops! I've seen so many people talk about the assistant, but I honestly was not bothered by her death. I didn't see how it was any worse than Sam L Jackson's arm or the lawyer's death being played 100% for laughs. But I was seriously concerned for that baby Triceratops.

    Holy Matrimony

    Just to clarify, Allen did not take Hemmingway to Paris. He *wanted* to, and her terrible parents actively encouraged her to go, but in this case the teenager was the only one with common sense and said no.

    Terminator: Genisys (2015)

    Well, that seals it for me. If you're going to put The Doctor in a Terminator movie, at least use him!
  4. May you enter the gates of Valhalla shiny and chrome!

    EPISODE 113.5 — Minisode 113.5

    YES! I used to see this in reruns all the time as a kid and thought the murderous spider robots were really cool. Gene SImmons just plays himself in this, which is to say he's terrible.

    Holy Matrimony

    Made especially unsettling after Hemingway revealed that not only was Woody Allen her first kiss (not first on screen kiss, but actual first kiss), but he then arranged for her to go to Paris with him THE DAY she turned 18. Barf.
  7. Fair point, I forgot this was recorded a while back. I will take this opportunity to post a picture of Jason in shorts, though. The grosso!
  8. Someone needs to tell Kremer that Jason is trying to force government pants on people right in the midst of summah. On a personal note, I'm living in the south temporarily, and if it weren't for shorts that showed off my disgusting legs I might be dead. Also I'd rather look at disgusting legs than see people in pants with sweaty crotches. But I 100% agree with Paul that sandals are repellent and should be banned in public spaces.

    Holy Matrimony

    Swap the gender roles and you have any number of Woody Allen movies, except not as gross since Arquette has no interest in sleeping with her child spouse.

    Antitrust (2001)

    I just remember this one being especially egregious, so much so that Microsoft felt it necessary to address it (at least in a roundabout way).

    Antitrust (2001)

    Hackers is fun nonsense while this movie is tedious nonsense. As if they didn't make it obvious enough that Robbins was a thinly-veiled stand in for Gates, they even had him living in a copy of Gates smart house.
  12. 'What the hell was that?' 'It looked like you in some kind of turtle costume wearing a trenchcoat.'

    Why did they change the theme song?

    Look Krazy Joe, this battle is over. It's time to let go and let live.
  14. They definitely couldn't decide on a timeline for this movie. As you said, if this is happening months later, then Shredder crawling out of the garbage makes no sense. But if this happens right after the first movie, how the hell did April get an apartment so fast? The Foot burn down her apartment halfway through the first movie. And April asks the Turtles in this movie if they found a new place to live like they've been staying with her for a while.

    Jurassic World (2015)

    Fox has set the bar for horrible product placement for me. They basically go old-school and just blatantly have the characters try to sell the product directly to the camera. 'ISN'T THIS TOYOTA PRIUS AN AMAZING CAR I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WOW, OH WELL WE SHOULD PROBABLY GET BACK TO CATCHING CRIMINALS WHO ARE PROBABLY DRIVING MAZDAS OR SOMETHING LOL', cut to loving exterior shot of the Prius slowly approaching a red light. This movie couldn't even come close to that. Though it did make me wonder why Samsung or Verizon would want the placement, since they subsequently have the characters lament about how horrible product placement is.
  16. This is one of the things about these movies that always puzzled me. Splinter does not have the capability of speech until he's covered in radioactive slime (per TMNT 1). This happens in New York City, so presumably he should have a New York accent (the Turtles probably should too, and at least in the first movie Raph definitely does, but we'll let that go for the moment). At the very least, he should not have a Japanese accent, right? But then it dawned on me that these movies postulate the idea that rats are naturally hyper-intelligent to begin with. Splinter has clear memories of his master fighting Saki (Shredder) over the woman they were both in love with. It's clear that since he understood the context for their fight, he also understood their conversations, and he even attempts to take revenge after Shredder kills his master by scratching Shredder's face (they even show him mimicking Yoshi's fighting exercises). All of that is pre-ooze, which means in the TMNT movie universe rats are just as intelligent as humans, they just lack the capacity of speech unless you dip them in radioactive ooze. The 80s cartoon sidestepped all of this in a possibly more insane way by making Splinter the mutated form of Hamato Yoshi. The explanation there was he had been in contact with lots of rats in the sewer, so the mutagen turns him into a giant rat. Oh my! RE: Shredder's OTT accent, the guy portraying him in costume is Francois Chau (better known as Dr Chang/Candle/Halliwax from LOST) a Cambodian-Chinese man, while the voice is done by David McCharen (a not even slightly Asian man). It's as if they decided, 'Hey, we don't want to half-ass this racist thing, let's be thorough'. I also have an in-universe theory as to why Casey Jones doesn't appear in this film but later returns in 3. If you remember the end of the last movie, Shredder falls into the garbage truck, which he probably would have survived, but then Casey deliberately turns on the compactor in order to kill him. Even though he somehow didn't manage to kill Shredder, I'm pretty sure Casey is on the lamb because he's wanted for attempted murder. And when you consider the fact that his decision to kill Shredder comes very quickly with almost no consideration, I don't think this was Casey's first murder rodeo. He spent the time between those movies cleaning up any evidence/witnesses he left behind in plans to change his identity. The Turtles should probably be worried. Lastly, there was a sort of 4th movie in the form of the animated TMNT in 2007. It featured Sarah Michelle Gellar, Patrick Stewart and the actual Japanese person Mako as Splinter, in what would turn out to be his final role.

    one of jasons upcoming films ... sleeping with other people

    I suspect she was banned from Earwolf because when she was on CBB she talked during the Would You Rather? theme. As we all know, this is something Scott Aukerman simply cannot forgive.

    EPISODE 112.5 — Minisode 112.5

    RE: TMNT, I am pretty sure all my fond memories of them are because of the TMNT arcade game, which I probably spent hundreds of dollars playing (well, hundreds of my parent's dollars).

    My defense of Batman Forever is expressed thusly: Thank you, and goodnight.

    EPISODE 112.5 — Minisode 112.5

    Lots of people will yell at me, but I maintain that Batman Returns is actually the best of the OG Batman movies.
