    Episode 84 — No Holds Barred: LIVE!

    Yeah. I forgot just how crazy this movie was until they started discussing it. They barely scratched the surface. Case in point: I forgot about that weird projection of Zeus. And it's a minor point, but after Rip smashes that mirror, the image projected on him is Zeus in a completely different pose. It's not even the same picture.

    No Hold Barred Corrections and Omissions

    Here's something I didn't realize until June said that the limo driver who dookied his pants looked like he was wearing a wig. I don't think it was to conceal the actor's identity. I think the actor was made up to look like RICHARD BELZER. Why? In 1985, Belzer was hosting a TV show called "Hot Properties," and there was one particular episode that year that featured Mr. T and Hulk Hogan promoting the very first Wrestlemania. There's some tension. He doesn't like them, they don't like him, and at one point Belzer urges Hogan to demonstrate some wrestling moves. Hogan put Belzer in a sleeper hold, rendering him unconscious, then dropped him to the floor, splitting the back of his head open. Belzer sued Hogan and the WWF and settled out of court for an amount in the range of 6 to 7 figures. I think Hogan and McMahon were a little bitter. The Incident: Further reading: http://www.cracked.c...oo-real_p2.html I had never heard of the incident before buying Belzer's standup comedy album Another Lone Nut, where he recounts the night's events and the aftermath in hilarious fashion ("I've got a house in France, so it all worked out.").

    Episode 83 — Winter's Tale

    I made myself laugh during the scene where Old Willa looks out the window, DURING BROAD DAYLIGHT, to search for her sister's star "somewhere up there in Orion's Belt." "Um...that's the sun," I imagined Peter saying.

    Episode 83 — Winter's Tale

    Using the crude drawing to spot Lady Sybil Beverly is especially stupid because, crude though it may be, it looks nothing like her. The hair of the woman in the drawing is perfectly straight and flat on her head. Beverly's hair is wavy and curly and permed. But the driver even holds it up in front of him for contrast like, "OMFG!! That's totally her!!!" No, it's not. Yet they're ready to kill her immediately. If they have no qualms with killing random people, why not just kill every redhead who vaguely resembles a smear of ketchup? If not, shouldn't Soames' men have at least staked out a few of the redheads in town first to see if Lake ever showed up? I guess that's too much to expect considering they can't even manage to find the only guy riding a big fucking white horse through the streets of New York. Also, further points against the movie, the drawing kept reminding me of this: Which STILL looks more like Beverly than the actual drawing.
  6. See now, I considered that, but that would be fuckin' crazy just to give Daniel the option of thinking that was true and then to assume he would even be able to find her! Robot or not, why show him she's alive at all? Maybe we can chalk it all up to Conal's pranksterism? Messing with people just to mess with them?
  7. I'm a little surprised no one *cough*June*cough* proposed that Ellie had ALWAYS been a robot from the beginning. The thought crossed my mind. Granted, it makes no sense whatsoever. But if they had just turned Ellie into a robot or built her from scratch in that (maybe) two-hour period, why would they have the robot tied down on a gurney in that room? Maybe she was always a robot, got too into her character, needed to be re-programmed and the straps were a precaution in case it didn't take.

    Episode 71 — The Glimmer Man

    Another issue I had with the part when Seagal talks over the PA in the school through a cellphone: why did it have to be HIS voice? The kid doesn't know who he is. He doesn't know what he sounds like. It wouldn't matter if it was him speaking or not. It's not like he'd get to the window and then not see the guy he didn't know who was speaking. Couldn't Wayans have asked him to come to the window? I also thought the stepson was being made to be a killer. I thought that was the connection to the therapist and that he and others were being programmed to be murderers like the Manchurian Candidate. That thought was only enforced by the scene where Stephen Tobolowsky puts the gun to his head in the same way as the stepson did at the film's beginning. Also, my one major laugh-out-loud moment came at the very beginning of the movie when the first woman is shot to death. The killer pulls the trigger and then the camera flies towards the screaming woman's forehead as if we are viewing her murder from the point-of-view of the bullet. Gotta say, I was disappointed that technique never came back. Imagine how a credit card razor POV shot could have spiced up a fight scene.

    I was thrilled to see the guy playing the president, as I recognized him from a movie in the MST3K spinoff series Cinematic Titanic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9cCRtsgGvo

    Whole movie's on YouTube. Don't spend money!
  13. They talked about the bad guy played by Jonathan Banks who plays Mike on Breaking Bad, but I knew I recognized the main bad guy played by Jere Burns as well. Turns out he's also a recurring character on Breaking Bad. He's the leader of Jesse's support group. The one who ran over his own daughter.

    Episode 68 — Over The Top: LIVE!

    I think the movie with the kid from the arcade grown up should be comparable to The Hustler or The Color of Money where Mike has become a legend on the arm wrestling circuit (both street and professional) and the kid wants revenge. Having no other recourse, he becomes a truck driver with the same company Hawks worked for. The legend of Hawks and his now legendary son are a constant slap in the face, so he spends years conditioning himself to be the best arm wrestler there is. After numerous wins, he seems unbeatable. Cocky, he shows up at Hawks & Son and challenges Mike. Never having learned how to go "over the top," he is beaten handily. Deciding to drown his sorrows in maple syrup, he goes to a local Waffle House to calm down. He falls for a waitress who's stuck in a rut and decides to ride with him. The movie follows them as they bond and fall in love. He forgets his hatred for Mike Hawks. Now he wants to marry her. But on his paltry trucker's salary, he doesn't even have enough for a decent ring. The girl starts to feel foolish; that they rushed into things. What was she thinking, quitting her job and running away with a stranger?! But Arcade Guy is gonna prove he can be a good provider. The Vegas arm wrestling tournament is coming up and he's gonna win it for her! A hundred grand and a brand new firetruck (for some reason)! Arcade Guy enters the tournament...but so does Mike. Obviously, it comes down to the two of them. It's a rigorous match, but Arcade Guy wins! But something doesn't sit right: Mike never went "over the top." He asks Mike why he didn't use his best move, one he had never beaten. Wouldn't he have won if he had? "Maybe," says Mike, "Maybe not. Now don't you have someone to propose to?" He immediately buys his girl a ring, she says yes, and they drive off into the sunset in their new firetruck. And his two cronies? Gay lovers. Moved to Massachusetts, got married and bought a split-level in the suburbs.

    Episode 67 — Sharknado

    A friend of mine works at the Writers Guild. He emailed the producers of SHARKNADO for a copy of the script. They complied almost instantly. The SHARKNADO screenplay is now part of the WGA library.

    Sidekicks (1992)

    Glad someone remembered this. Haven't seen it in a long time, but just watching snippets I think it might be perfect. Still not sold on the highlights? What if we threw in molestation via vapor rub? http://youtu.be/1mQjEd4wTnQ?t=42m13s How creepy was that? Anyway, here's the whole movie, Mr. Dumpling. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mQjEd4wTnQ

    Episode 66 — Demolition Man: LIVE!

    While according to tvtropes.org the original script DID have Huxley turn out to be his daughter, Sandra Bullock was 29 when this movie was made. Spartan is frozen in 1996. I don't remember how old they say she was at the time, but even assuming his wife was merely pregnant with his daughter, in the year 2032 she would be at the very least 36 years old. Not a huge leap, but considering it seems Spartan has memories of his daughter, she's probably closer to 40. Also this (jump to 3:20): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNhs99lO9dE

    It's great you guys were comfortable enough with yourselves as comedians to make so many puns. I think you really came out of your shells.

    The Golden Compass

    I remember laughing out loud in the theater at that very preview when they just casually drop the line "Ice Bears were the greatest of warriors." I actually read the first two books this past year and have just started the third. Rather than being "pro-atheist," so far I see it more as being anti-church, specifically. The characters have "souls," there is a "creator," but the powerful religious leaders use their influence to keep the truths of the universe away from the people and literally steal or destroy the souls of children, making them into no more than lethargic zombies. It's a little heavy-handed, honestly, but it is a very creative storyline. The third book even touches on homosexuality with two male angels who are literal soulmates. A second movie would have been interesting because the second book is much more low-key and takes place almost entirely in our world. It's more like a spy thriller than a fantasy epic. No ice bears, very few witches, and a whole new main character. The girl basically becomes a sidekick to an older boy and the two of them walk back and forth between modern day London and a Venitian city in another dimension filled with soul-eating ghosts.
