    Episode 16 — The Smurfs

    That would be a shame. I'm still waiting for their Blended episode.

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

    Between Conception, They Came Together, Sleeping With Other People, and an upcoming role in How To Be Single, Zooks is really becoming the unlikely Rom-Com stalwart.
  4. When I was a kid, I used to love this movie. I thought Keno was awesome (get well soon, Ernie Reyes Jr!), and it was the perfect segue into Surf Ninjas and Three Ninjas (TMNT 2 being 91, 3 Ninjas being 92, and Surf Ninjas being 93...not to mention Sidekicks with Chuck Norris, also out in 92. ALL 4 of those movies are HDTGM worthy). Looking back at it now, yes it is awful.... but it STILL doesn't hold a candle to the abomination that is TMNT 3. Seriously, fuck that movie.

    Why did they change the theme song?

    I like the new theme. The old theme was good too, for what it was (a lo-fi replication of a They Might Be Giants style), but it ran its course.

    EPISODE 112 — Jupiter Ascending

    I love Josh's inclusion on this. We were missing June in this and he June'd up pretty big. Also, I think Zooks calls him John after he said the movie had no plot holes.

    EPISODE 112 — Jupiter Ascending

    I had recorded my own podcast review of this movie back when it came out, but I am very glad that the Crew's views largely overlapped with mine. I am also VERY glad that Jason dislikes the second opinions theme as much as I do.

    EPISODE 111.5 — Minisode 111.5

    I don't think I've been this excited about a HDTGM episode in many years. I am totes excite.

    EPISODE 108 — Con Air LIVE!

    Maybe these are the irrational guys responsible for Poe's incarceration.... http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2015/04/24/florida-fraternity-zeta-beta-tau-accused-of-spitting-on-wounded-vets?src=usn_fb

    EPISODE 107.5 — Minisode 107.5

    Never seen Con Air. I guess it was inevitable.

    EPISODE 107 — Lake Placid: LIVE!

    I want this to be a real show.
  16. This will be a great movie, if any of JJ Abram's past Star Wars movies are any indication.

    "The Sylvester Stallone Podcast"

    Haven't listened, never expected Sly to do a podcast with Sheer anyway. So what is the show? Is it just like, Paul's take on the Hulk Hogan Talk Show? In related news: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/entertainment/celebrities_gossip/20141117_WENN_Arnold_Schwarzenegger___I_wanted_to_destroy_Stallone_.html Eagerly anticipating the inevitable Arnold/Sly 80s battle documentary.

    Episode 96 — Monkey Shines

    Probably the worst thing about this movie is this: it spends an hour telling you a harrowing story a man who had a life altering injury and became a paraplegic. Most of the movie shows him struggling with this very real, very relevant adaptation of his life. Its frustrating for him, he is angry with it, and he sees the change in everyone around him. People talk down to him, his girlfriend leaves him, its just a nightmare unending. Then at his lowest moment, he tries to commit suicide. The poor guy, you are never given a reason to do anything but feel sorry for him. When he survives the attempt, you want to root for him and want him to win. But what does winning mean? Well, in Monkey Shines what it means is suddenly being able to regain control of your body again. There is no real redemption, there is no triumph over adversity here. The struggle to deal with an injury like that, and the depression and frustration it causes, is real. That his disability is so flippantly disregarded, and the "happy ending" completely reverses what the first hour of the movie spends establishing, its kind of dickish. Its like people who are disabled are just ruined meatbags with no hope for happiness or a real life unless they regain the ability to use whatever part of their body has been disabled. I would have at least liked it if the happy ending was Allen and his gf enjoying their lives with him being a paraplegic.

    Episode 96 — Monkey Shines

    This episode REALLY broke down into something primal and existential. Sheesh-o-mally.

    Episode 96 — Monkey Shines

    Oh my God he was warging into that monkey. Allen was a greenseer.... why didn't I make this connection??

    Episode 95.5 — Minisode 95.5

    Okay, I'm an hour in now, and I have to say that so far, Allen is the only normal fucking person in this movie. He finds out that the doctor probably botched his surgery and is livid about it, and the girl driving him is like "I don't understand this reaction." REALLY, bitch?? "I don't like this change in you, Allen." Seriously, Fuck You. When that bitch of a homecare nurse was yelling about her bird being killed, I was thinking "Fuck that bird, he shoulda killed it himself anyway." And then Allen pretty much says exactly that. He lives in a world where everyone is a dumb asshole who talks down to him like he had down syndrome or something. How can you do anything else BUT root for him to slaughter this shitty world he lives in via a telepathic monkey mind meld?

    Episode 95.5 — Minisode 95.5

    There is silly comedy music playing while a monkey chases a laser and throws books around. There have been more scares in Home Alone by this point of the movie.

    Episode 95.5 — Minisode 95.5

    I'm about 30 mins into this and I'm wondering when the horror comes in. So far, its just super depressing.
  24. There already IS a HDTGM movie:
