    Silver Linings Playbook

    I don't think anyone is defending the film's content, they're simply explaining why this type of movie doesn't really work for the show. No one is saying you have to like the movie. But I've found a good HDTGM movie really does have to beg the question, how did this get made? In the case of Silver Linings Playbook - even if you don't like it - I don't think that question is all that hard to answer.

    I mean, I'm sure 9/11 did have an effect on the movie business, but as I recall everyone knew Glitter was a bomb before it even came out. I just find it totally hilarious that she seriously tried to blame it on 9/11.

    This movie is perfect HDTGM fodder. What plot there is doesn't even bother trying to make sense. Amanda Seyfried straight-up burns a guy alive. The police are THE WORST EVER. Totally discussion worthy.

    Actually, Mariah herself blamed it on 9/11. Damn terrorists!

    Temptation - Tyler Perry

    I was referring to Ella Joyce's line in the trailer, but it could easily be applied to the experience of watching a TP movie.

    The Host (2013)

    This has a 12% on RT right now. Just to contrast, GI Joe Retaliation has a 29%. It sounds like this is amazingly bad. Which kinda bums me out a bit, since I like Niccol as a director and was hoping he could make something interesting out of this. Though I will probably still enjoy it for it's amazing badness.

    Temptation - Tyler Perry

    The trailer for that makes me laugh uncontrollably every time I see it. HE IS GONNA DRAG YOU STRAIGHT TO HELL!

    Men in Black II (2002)

    Sherilyn Fenn is great. She was in an episode of Psych a few years ago that was a sort of tribute to Twin Peaks, and she still looked great.
  9. Sorry guys, I have to agree with Paul's ban on Uwe Boll. THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN HERE!

    Sleepwalkers (1992)

    Oh god, that final scene. Someone probably appears in the credits as 'cat tosser'.

    Episode 58.5 - Minisode 58.5

    This just happens to be playing all weekend on the Sony Movie Channel. Perfect timing! I hope they talk about the fact that their tour bus is basically a Tardis (bigger on the inside). I always thought Scary was the one that would be the most fun to hang out with.

    InAPPropriate Comedy (2013)

    He should have a really original catchphrase. Something like 'Oh helllllll no!' or 'That's wack!'

    House (1986)

    This movie is actually kind of amazing. But it would absolutely make for a good episode, because it is capital B Bonkers.

    Silver Linings Playbook

    The big deal about that film was that everything was supposedly recorded live, so who knows. But I've heard Jackman sing live without any fiddling and he's quite good.

    Episode 58.5 - Minisode 58.5

    I always thought Sporty was cute. She's actually prettier now than she was then, though.

    Silver Linings Playbook

    Singing is clearly not Crowe's strong suit, but I feel like his badness was highly exaggerated. It probably seemed worse since Hugh Jackman is such a good singer.

    I think there are a couple threads for it, actually. But it is pretty crazy.

    Silver Linings Playbook

    Yeah, this one won't happen. Way too well-received critically and commercially.

    Episode 121 — The Origin of Dubstep

    Fair enough, I wasn't aware of her age.

    Episode 121 — The Origin of Dubstep

    I think that the blogger in question buries whatever valid criticisms she may have in an avalanche of 'Everything is terrible!'. I'm sure she is well-intentioned, but her overzealousness means she ends up finger-pointing at the wrong things which ends up obscuring her point. I just know from personal experience that it's far too easy to be totally consumed by that stuff and lose some perspective. And it's for sure a healthy and sensible thing to recognize that things we like have problems.

    Episode 121 — The Origin of Dubstep

    I have no comment on Moshe's routine as I'm not familiar with it, but the Your Fave is Problematic blog is a perfect encapsulation of the Tumblr social justice rabbit hole. That individual has lost all sense of proportion. They say Benedict Cumberbatch is 'problematic' (Oi, I'm so sick of this word I could barf) because he used the phrase 'I'm a tart for it', which the blogger believes to be slut-shaming (even though in context he would be slut-shaming *himself*). They also criticize him for saying 'People go nuts for it', because that is supposedly ableist and mocks people with mental illnesses. They accused Marina Diamandis of wearing blackface in this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_oMD6-6q5Y - when that's clearly not what's going on. I had a friend that went down this particular rabbit hole (and I very nearly dropped down there myself) and we don't even speak anymore because according to them every word out of everyone's mouth was somehow racist, sexist, ableist, misogynist, transphobic, etc. My point being, I wouldn't use that blog as a reliable gauge of whether someone is actually problematic or not.

    Episode 115 - Children Cartoons

    Kukoda is referring to the Ferengi. No, they were not all played by Jewish people (in fact, the first Ferengi we ever see is a played by a Spanish actor). They were introduced in The Next Generation, not the Original Series. Whether or not they are a Jewish stereotype is highly debatable. We do know they were introduced as a critique of capitalism.

    Bad Summer Movies!

    The Mummy movies are kind of harmless. You could probably do an entire show on Brendan Fraser's career, though.
