  1. Ken Russel's interpretation of The Who's classic rock opera is completely indulgent and insane, filled from top to bottom every piece of symbolism Ken could fit into any given frame. As the lead Roger Daltry stares his way through most of the movie. Other members of The Who show up as well, notably Keith Moon as creepy Uncle Ernie. Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, and Elton John make appearances as well, along with singing as good as you would expect it to be from Jack Nicholson and a super scummy Oliver Reed. The highlight though of course is Ann-Margaret dry-humping a hot dog pillow while a room gets filled with baked beans:
  2. That was amazing and I really hope it inspires Mel Brooks to pursue making that autobiographical film about his time as a soldier in WWII.

    What guest do you want to see?

    James Urbaniak, as a guest or a charac. If you haven't checked it out his podcast is definitely worth listening too (could go for his motivational speaker/werewolf persona on CBB). EDIT: Oops, already posted this back in May.

    Episode 96 — Monkey Shines

    Guessing that the Stephen King confusion comes from the (probably intentional) similarities between the Monkey Shines poster and the cover of King's "Skeleton Crew": Speaking of Stephen King, please do a "Maximum Overdrive" episode.

    What guest do you want to see?

    James Urbankiak would be great. On a tangent he was also great on "Review" as Andy Daly's producer.

    What guest do you want to see?

    Definitely Matt Gourley after listening to him on the Andy Daly podcast. Would love for him to come on as H. R. Giger.

    Mazes and Monsters (1982)

    This is perfect. Would be great to get Brian Posehn as a guest for this. Unfortunately not on the voting site though. As mentioned though all available on youtube, and insane on so many levels, and far beyond just the D&D hallucination stuff. There's the guy wearing a different hat in every scene, his bedroom that his mom redecorates so that it looks like its an insane asylum, unbelievably sexist dialogue where a mom and daughter talk about how much better their lives would be with men in them, parents accusing each other of being drunk out of nowhere. A bizarre, out of place love song that plays over the opening credits...all of this is within the first 10 minutes as well.
  8. What was the name of the documentary they're talking about? I seemed to have missed it and am far too lazy to try and find it. EDIT: Think I found it. "Valentine Road".

    Episode 247 — Half A Score

    One of the year's best. Could have easily been titled, "Beef Over".

    Maximum Overdrive

    This would be perfect timing with Halloween coming up.

    What guest do you want to see?

    Richard Ayoade would be my number one pick for a guest, preferably as Dean Lerner if he did a character. Any and everyone from "Darkplace" really...maybe just a Darkplace reunion themed episode (although Liz may be dead, somewhere in the Eastern bloc...). Would also like to hear on it... Jon Benjamin Chris Gethard Betsy Sodero Kevin Heffernan Lake Bell Simon Pegg (probably a long shot) Nick Frost (ditto Pegg) Aidy Bryant John DiMaggio Brendan Small Patrick Warburton Maria Bamford Zack Woods Tony Hale Jessica Walters Will Arnett And much more Eddie Peppitone
  12. I'd agree this movie is definitely not a mistake, particularly considering Herzog was at the helm. That said I still can't entirely wrap my head around what it's supposed to be. I think it is perhaps supposed to be a parody of some kind, or at least some kind of absurdist story. Either way though it was wonderfully and delightfully crazy, and while intentionally so it still is so unusal the question still applies as to, "How was it possible for anyone to make a movie like this."

    improv4humans fanart by me

    That's incredible.
  14. I had a similar experience. I was walking around pantless at 2:25am last night, though I was going for a snack of Greek yogurt and white asparagus which, after being startled, I dropped in the yogurt, leaving quite an imprint.

  17. Agreed that this needs to be tackled. In one scene there is a shootout between some gangsters, with Cage's associates coming out on the winning side. Immediately after it happens a coked-up Cage laughs and insists that they shoot the corpses again because, "Their soul's still dancing," and we see the souls break-dancing, accompanied by the ghost iguanas that seem to haunt Cage through out the whole thing. This movie is bonkers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RDdpdVZUCM
  18. Yes! For "the line" alone.

    The Boondock Saints (1999)

    Yeah, crazy over-the-top, terrible dialogue...Ron Jeremy. Perfect contender.

    Maximum Overdrive

    Worth it alone for the killer soda machine that murders people by shooting cans at a Little League game. Also has some great, 'Noooooooooooo!'s.

    Episode 163 — Burning Love

    I love that the" Closing Up The Plug Bag" song has become a part of the show.
  22. JDLP

    Richard Ayoade, preferably as "Dern Lerner" aka the agent/hospital administrator from Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.
