    EPISODE 119 - Maximum Overdrive: LIVE!

    Yeah, I was wondering why that point wasn't brought up. It was just the vehicles.

    EPISODE 119 - Maximum Overdrive: LIVE!

    This is actually what I came here to comment on. Everyone's reaction to the Bible salesman being such a scumbag was a little surprising to me since so much of King's work involves a super religious Christian character and most of the time those characters are not exactly good guys and usually rather crazy.

    EPISODE 119 - Maximum Overdrive: LIVE!

    Both Maximum Overdrive and Trucks are based on Stephen King's short story "Trucks." The second one isn't a copy cat, it's more of a remake or reinterpretation.

    EPISODE 114 — Runaway

    The number of science fiction movies and books (since people still read at that time) and cartoons and comics that referenced video phones was pretty high. I mean, even Star Trek used video communication and Aliens only came out two years later.

    Jurassic World (2015)

    I went into this expecting mind-numbing fun but I'm an animal behaviorist and their attempt to introduce legitamcy by bringing in behavior and training just totally killed my suspension of disbelief. I am totally on board with this.

    EPISODE 111 — Hercules in New York: LIVE!

    Aside from the fact that no one who worked on this could keep Roman and Greek mythology and names straight - since it's been discussed - I loved everyone's reaction to Juno. I get that Hera's jealousy was always dismissed by the other gods in mythology largely because the only jealousy they felt was justified was their own when they were upset about... anything (not that I think that's why she was treated that way in this movie, that's giving them too much credit) but at no point does anyone mention that this is their mother they're treating like a loony tune. Not even when Mercury talked to Hercules. And I may have been the only one, but I was really disappointed when the guy announcing the wrestling strong man competition called them both "titans." I don't think that word was selected for its mythological roots (again, too much credit) but given how Hercules freaked out about so many other percieved allusions to his heritiage you would really think he would take umbrage at being called by the name of soe defeated proto-gods.

    Episode 81 — Mortal Kombat

    When Jason was asking about Final Fantasy could he have meant Fatal Fury? It was another important fighting game in the world of game development. First to have boob jiggle. I worked the newest installment of MK btw. ... No cool stories to tell off hand but bragging to a group of people who don't know me seems like a good use of my time.

    Movie missing from the voting database

    Is this a good place to put forward movies that aren't in the database or is there a better way to do that? (This may be in the pinned post but I didn't see it)

    Mancation (2012)

    Joey Fatone AND Danica McKellar. Isn't she supposed to be super extra smart? Like smart enough to know to stay the hell away from something like this?
  11. This movie was one of those "well we have extra time and since it's a local production it will bring people in..." picks at a festival I attended last year. It was so awful that no one who wasn't involved in production managed to not make SOME comment about how nutters it was by the time it ended (and most of the people I knew in attendance were trying really hard to be respectful of the cast and crew since they were all there but... Ugh) I wouldn't be suggesting it at all except for the fact that it very inexplicably managed to get distribution. Strong enough distribution that I saw an ad for it on a bus downtown couple weeks ago. (ETA I mean on the OUTSIDE of a bus, not the cheap ads inside. The ones drivers, pedestrians, and the rest of the world have to see) The movie is about some girl whose brother is accused of murder (and is blind for some reason) who has to come to LA to see him and somehow the ghost of the Black Dahlia is attached to her and the guy who murdered her possesses a doctor and something about a knife buried in a cave probably in Griffith Park and self inflicted abortions in bathtubs IN COCKTAIL DRESSES and... Well I can't honestly tell you what it's about because I never figured it out BUT there's ghosts and presumably possession and flashbacks and blind people and abortions and a tour of all of LA in one day and mental wards. Also, the guy who is in that Monster Man SyFy reality show is in it. I can't find any conversations about it so I don't believe it has yet been suggested (i apologize if it has). I tried to recommend it at For Your Inconsideration but despite the fact that it IS listed on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB the site couldn't find it (I'm assuming I'm missing something and that may have to do with the fact that I'm on my phone) I'm including links to both the Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB pages as well as the trailer. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_black_dahlia_haunting/ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2359347/?mode=desktop (read the reviews) I trust you will all see precisely what I mean.

    Episode 76 — Fair Game

    I listened to the Cobra episode just before (like literally the day before) and Fair Game got a shout out.
