    EPISODE 107 — Lake Placid: LIVE!

    Huh. I don't think Lake Placid is a bad movie..... EDIT: After listening to the episode, I am almost convinced. Good show, guys

    Episode 53.5 — Minisode 53.5

    Paul, if you first saw the Ali G show in the UK, you would know it wasn't shown on the BBC, but on Channel 4 over here. There is a bit of a difference

    Bad Halloween Movies!

    Oh, yeah, Deadly Friend is so bad. It starts of as a boy-meets-girl story then she dies and is brought back as a killer robot. That bit from Mama Fratelli is probably the best bit.

    Bad Halloween Movies!

    But, Night of the Creeps is awesome! Atkins is the lead in Halloween III, also which loads of people have recommended Oh, I have one- The Dark Half, from 1993, directed by George A. Romero from the novel by Stephen King. It has Michael Rooker!

    Bad Halloween Movies!

    Hocus Pocus, mentioned above, is a good one, actually. It's set at Halloween, too. I also second many mentioned especially Maximum Overdrive, it is all kinds of awful. And what about Halloween, 4, Halloween 5 or Halloween Resurrection. That one has Busta Ryhmes going up against Michael Myers.......and getting the upper hand......... WTF?

    Episode 40.5 — Minisode 40.5

    The Amazing Spider-Man doesn't deserve to get the How Did Get Made treatment. As Patrick said, we know how it got made, they needed to keep the rights. Also, it's not a bad film, it's not 'amazing' but it's certainly not bad enough to have a podcast devoted to it. I think a lot of the problems stem from the fact it shows us the origin story again. I was bored for the first hour because I had seen the majority of it before. It is a film that is saved by performances though, Andrew Garfield is great as Peter, much better than Tobey MacGuire ever was. The rest of the cast is great too and there is no J.Jonah Jameson, which is a good thing. So, yeah, didn't love it, didn't hate it but I don't think it's bad enough for this show.

    Bad Summer Movies!

    I think Event Horizon is underrated. I think it is Paul W.S. Anderson's best work out of a list of really crap movies. And Laurence Fishburne is one cool captain.

    The Monster Squad (1987)

    I like The Monster Squad. And the way I explain the homophobic slurs is that, in this instance, they are said by dumb kids that don't know any better. Besides, there are plenty anti-fat slurs said by friends of the 'fat' character, it's just kids messing about. Kids tend to insult each other they are known for dickish things like that Plus, it was the 80s. And many 80s films had stuff in them you wouldn't get away with these days, times change (as the opening post mentioned with the PC remark). I enjoy 80s movies, some for nostalgia reasons and other just for the fact I like the film. I never saw Monster Squad when I was a kid but I like the way it uses monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and the Mummy and put them in a (then) modern setting. I wouldn't complain about the film getting the HDTGM treatment but I would argue that there are weirder 80s movies out there that deserve it more. And, yes, it has Mary Ellen Trainor as the mum, the same role (but different character) she had in The Goonies. She was also the psychiatrist in the Lethal Weapon movies, Gail Wallens in Die Hard (a character she reprised in Richochet) and Kathleen Turner's sister in Romancing The Stone.

    A Sound of Thunder (2005)

    Yeah, it is a bloody awful movie, truly dire. Based on the Ray Bradbury story, too, it's a great premise, how can they mess it up? Watch the film and you will see exactly how they could mess it up. This film is actually a perfect example of 'how did this get made?'

    Bad Summer Movies!

    These aren't Summer movies, which is a shame as 2012 is perfect for HDTGM. It's just the same set piece repeated 5 times. Hopefully they'll do it (and The Core) at some point, maybe they could do a disaster movie month

    I second ID4 and Godzilla but must also say these three words- Batman. And. Robin.
