    Indecent Proposal (1993)

    Pretty simple, the female leads humiliate and abuse the male leads for a good portion of the films, and after the women are done having their fun with anther man, the male leads take them back without a second thought.

    Indecent Proposal (1993)

    The ending drove me nuts. I don't remember him being that much more responsible for gambling away their money than she was, or for taking Redford's offer, so having him take her back at the end after all that punishment was insane. The movie presenting that as a happy and satisfying conclusion made me laugh out loud. I couldn't believe it when I watched another movie soon after and it had a very similar emasculating ending!

    Episode 74.5 — Minisode 74.5

    I re-watched it for the first time in a while and still think it successfully captures the feel of a gritty, 70's set Daredevil movie. I wouldn't say it was mostly footage of this film at all, but uses shots of it simply to include footage of someone dressed as Daredevil among the more important clips. Calling it an exercise in editing really isn't a criticism of a sizzle reel, but more of a description of the practice, as the point of one of these reels is to quickly and easily assemble a collection of footage that represents the general idea and aesthetic of a potential project. Here you can see one for Looper that was made in much the same way http://nofilmschool....eel-for-looper/

    Joe Carnahan made a "sizzle reel" for a proposed Daredevil project that I assume won't come to fruition at this point, but really had the perfect aesthetic for a Daredevil movie based on a darker storyline like that. Worth a watch at least to see what could have been.

    It's been years since I've seen Daredevil without Rifftrax audio, so this should be interesting. This movie gets so broad and simplistic it's downright Schumacher-esque at times despite being made years after Batman and Robin made that a cardinal sin for comic book films. For me, Ben Affleck needs a top notch script to make him likeable in a lead role, so I don't hold out much hope for Superman vs. Batman, but you never know.

    Great choice for a movie! The last time I saw it, I think I was too young to appreciate unintentional comedy. btw, I missed June on the last one, especially since there were so many things in Toys she could have read too much into.

    It wouldn't be a weird thing to suspect. Especially with her love of action and violence it could seem like that's what they were setting up. It might have given the film more of an emotional center than going with the typical romance thing and abandoning the daughter storyline altogether.

    Demolition Man is one of my favorite good/bad movies ever. It probably would have been legitimately good if they had just kept the script by the guy who wrote Heathers. Still, some of his transgressive sensibility remains in the finished film. Great score too.

    Damn, good thinking. I never would have thought of that.

    Paul F. Tompkins is always great on these. Actually he's my favorite guest on any podcast.

    I don't know if I can will myself to see that movie. I promised myself that I Robot was the last bad movie Will Smith would lure me into...and then I saw I am Legend...but the promise is back on! Also, If The Happening is off limits, Lady in the Water is just about as bad.
