  1. Gotta say, while Ian gave a really good talk, this made Ptolemy Slocum (who I've heard is a good improviser) look dreadfully inept. I think there probably are arguments against some things that Ian said but Ptolemy came across like he had no idea what he was doing. It's not like he had to turn up and respond, or even like he didn't have 45 minutes to put together his thoughts. Yet when asked for any clarification at all he gave some of the vaguest answers imaginable. I couldn't imagine a worse advertisement for Nerdist's improv school. Not really at all. There are some funny moments but none of it is played as comedy, and in fact backs away from many implicit comedic statements. It's still a very good talk though.
  2. I love the fact that Eban committed to playing the theme from John Carpenter's "The Fog" everytime the salt water tuffy kids came up, just because he did it once.

    EPISODE 123 - Lifeforce

    They're greater than Moby Dick and Gravity's Rainbow combined and say a lot about humanity (in particular, how it would interact with a space-vampire).

    EPISODE 123 - Lifeforce

    Omission; Nobody talked about the Choose Your Own Adventure books about space vampires which clearly inspired this movie. I own both and they are the best books I've ever read. The covers are also great too, particularly how the first artist seemed to have forgotten the fact that the sun kills vampires. If anyone wants to go through either book, pick one and I'll give very condensed descriptions of each page for you to choose the next path

    EPISODE 121.5 - Minisode 121.5

    I don't know if there's been a funnier moment in a HDTGM film than when Dr. Lido Moray explained that he stopped being a priest...pretty much to shoot people. Also, is "Lido Moray" supposed to be an anagram?

    EPISODE 120 - Masters of the Universe

    I am beginning the forum's rage at the lack of remix theme.

    EPISODE 118.5 - MINISODE 118.5

    This god damn movie was garbage. Why do the trucks keep "roaring"? Why does the film treat their windscreens like "eyes"? How weird is it to hear Liza Simpson every couple minutes? ACDC suck This movie is fucking boring Whoever said this is good; defend yourself.

    Why did they change the theme song?

    Oh I get it, because racism right?
  9. Joe Rogan is an anthropomorphised pile of human garbage, spewing semi-coherent trash at all times.

    Episode 116.5 - Minisode 116.5

    Really? Because I think they explained it very clearly; The thing that makes this so helpful and expositionary, for me, is how the grammatical frame of reference changes multiple times from past to future to past tense. This did not at all come across like the ramblings of a hobo becoming unstuck in time. I also feel that adding literal bullet points to an opening crawl is very useful, because that's how I like to imagine opening narrations; as a shopping list.

    Is the show actually in danger of being cancelled?

    It's interesting, because really podcast shows can get cancelled at any time, like how life can get cancelled for people. Without warning. And it's very sad. But no, I don't think it would make sense, and I mean dollars and cents, to cancel the Hollywood Handbook.

    QUESTIONS FOR SCOTT RE: HOWL

    Obviously everyone here is talking about the app Howl, which is the Netflix of podcasting. But Howl is really the app for show like Comedy Bang Bang and the WTF show. I want to know, will WolfCool be releasing its own podcasting app any time soon? If so, will it be exclusively for Android and will it be named "Owl"? Scott, can you speak on this? If not, could you get Sean/Hayes to help...

    Episode 116.5 - Minisode 116.5

    I just started watching this, and have had to restart it 3 times within the first minute when realising that I didn't understand the open narration. If it happens again, I'm going in without trying. edit: oh boyyyyyy

    Ass Backwards

    Guys, I'm starting a podcast about bad HDTGM recommendations. I'd really like you to come on the show Effigy and talk about your experiences with this thread. Good posters should be able to laugh at themselves and I've always enjoyed listening to earwolf forum members talk about the posts that didn't go so well. Regardless, it would seem kind of hypocritical for you to be okay with making a terrible recommendation to a show talking about bad movies and then spend 2 full pages defending yourself; not being able to handle criticism of your own post.
