    Oz the Great and Powerful

    Yeah, and even the bad Oz reviews aren't anywhere near as harsh as my opinion of it. So, yeah, maybe it's just mostly me. That stinks, because I'd love an episode on it! But yeah, Devil's Advocate gives me hope. I was shocked when that was announced as a pick, because I'd always thought of that as a pretty good movie. I hadn't seen it since I was a teenager though.

    The Marine (2006)

    It's been a couple of years since I've seen this - What was the T-1000's self-referential line in the movie? It was like, "Looks like I need to TERMINATE him" or something like that. He might as well have looked at the camera and winked.

    High Tension (2003)

    Reading that the twist ending did not exist in the source material comes as no surprise at all. It just seemed so tacked on, because they felt pressure to have it end on some sort of twist, just like every other movie. It really bummed me out, because I thought the movie was great up until that point, and the ending retroactively ruined the whole thing for me.

    A Talking Cat!?! (2013)

    Just watched this on netflix, and I am in love with it. I don't think there's any doubt that Roberts was sloshed when he did his voiceover work. Besides that, man, where to even begin? The casio keyboard sample music soundtrack, which runs constantly? The crazy clothes-scanning scene? The sock on the cat's head? This movie is a wonder.

    Oz the Great and Powerful

    I am honestly surprised that opinions are this divided on the movie - I thought it would be pretty universally panned! Maybe I just wanted it to be good too desperately. In any case, I'd love to hear a HDTGM on it!

    Oz the Great and Powerful

    As I said, I'm a Disney fanboy, so I have seen a looooot of kids movies. That makes me two things: (a) kind of a weirdo, and ( so,eone who doesn't accept that movies for kids should be held to a separate set of standards, quality-wise. We will just have to agree to disagree. I think,it was one of the worst mainstream movies I have ever seen, if not the worst.

    High Tension (2003)

    I will note, to contextualize my statement, that I love the Sleepaway Camp twist, and think it's actually a brilliant movie. I have loved it since childhood though, so that might be sentimentality speaking.

    High Tension (2003)

    One of the worst twist endings ever. It seemed like an afterthought to comform to the standards of the post-sixthsense landscape, and it completely ruined what was otherwise a pretty entertaining movie.

    Oz the Great and Powerful

    I never noticed it before because I've only seen him in Spidey movies where he is kind of supposed to be a bit of a moron, but man is Franco bad. In this movie, he reminded me of Scream era David Arquette. That's not good. 90% of the "effects" were characters pretending to walk in front of greenscreens with watercolor,paintings on them. Mila Kunis looked like Jim Carrey Mask. It was just a mess.
  10. Hey, I'm Chadd and I've been listening to (and loving) the podcast for a while, but this is my first time posting. I expected to come here after this weekend and see a ton of people recommending this movie. When I didn't see it, I had to sign up. I am a huge Disney nerd, a huge Sam Raimi fan, and an Oz fan. So this movie had the potential to be one of my favorites. Turns out, it's is one of the worst movies I've ever seen in the theater, if not THE worst. I think it's perfect for HDTGM. It's the perfect storm of badness. A script that has the quality of a Real Ghostbusters script, porno-level acting (even from the people who are usually pretty good) and some of the worst green screen effects I've ever seen. I know you don't often do movies that are currently in theaters, but I really think this one ought to be considered!
