    Does anyone like/understand Tenet?

    It's pretty but vacuous. I liked it fine, but have no desire to see it again, and found it really surprising that people kept saying that you needed to see it several times to Get It. I think I got it. Eh. It's definitely not as bad as Interstellar though, which made me groan out loud in the theater with the whole love thing I had really been enjoying it up to that point, and boy did it go downhill fast after that. I don't think I've been so upset about a ( normal, not HDTGM-type ) film ever since.
  2. I know The Crew doesn't usually go in on smaller films, but they've set the precedent with Governor Gabby and, I mean... the premise of this film alone... Kitty Mammas on IMDb.

    Episode 253. Cats

    Right off the bat, I strongly disagree with Paul; This is a bad movie. It is a very bad movie. IMO the thing that really annoys me is the amount of not-giving-a-fuckness that must have been going around during the writing and filming of this thing, the hubris - They really thought, " Well, Cats The Musical ran for I don't know how many years on Broadway, surely they'll lap up anything and everything we'll throw at them ". That scale thing is a basic thing that anyone ( Tom Hooper ) should have figured out on day one. Add to that the fact about the FX people having 4 months to finish the whole film vs 6 months for the trailer, + having to work 90 hour weeks on something that was always going to be a trainwreck? Boo.

    Totally Not Predator, starring ( ? ) Nicholas Cage, who will either be there for the whole film or like 5 minutes tops.

    Episode 248 Velocipastor

    Meet the Raptors Btw, I love that there are still people who think that feathers make dinosaurs less scary. As if a species of 6 ft tall seagulls wouldn't make us extinct in a matter of weeks.

    Episode 247.5: Prequel to Episode 248

    After seeing the film, I'm not sure if you're 100% right or maybe being a bit too hard. I get that there are limitations on having a small budget ( this apparently cost 35K ), and you might as well face those limitations head-on and just be honest/jokey about it, but then there were a couple of scenes when they're definitely playing it cheap on purpose, a couple of actors who are laying it on way too thick, and a couple of lines of dialogue that really straddled the line between 70/80s schlock and just straight on icky/weird. And like @theworstbuddhist said, it's surprisingly boring for something with such a fun premise and only 70 minutes of run time. I guess your mileage may vary, but it's definitely not a chore like some of their picks are.

    I'll trepeat and say that I thought Palm Springs was a delight and much better than what it sounded like just by reading the synopsis. On a very different register, I saw Relic and it really hit me hard. It's not perfect, it's not horror in the traditional sense ( more high fantasy IMO ), but it handles a very difficult situation in what I thought was a very sensitive and realistic manner. Emily Mortimer ( my bones! ) is as great as ever, and the two other actresses in the film are incredible also.
  11. Paul, June, and Jason discuss the 1987 comedy horror My Demon Lover. They talk about horny demons, the Mangler, the fully clothed shower scene, the castle in the middle of central park, and more. In which I learned that Nick from Family Ties wasn't played by Dermot Mulroney.

    Episode 653 - The 11th Anniversary Show!

    Ok, so i know CBB topics aren't a thing anymore, and i know no one from the show will probably even see it, but i just had to find a way to thank Scott and the folks at Earwolf for all the hard work that they have done and still do. 11 years is a lot, and even though i haven't been around for all of it, you now make a big part of my life and make myself and thousands of other people very happy every week. This is a sincere thank you. As for this ep, i just spent 1 hour and 40 minutes laughing my head off. Jason and PFT are MVPs as always, Gabrus is amazing ( How does he do it? Where does he come up with all these completely different characters? Every. Single. Time. ), Carl and Ego are a joy to listen to, and Lily is a wonderful new addition to the gang. Thank you to all of you

    Episode 239 - Cool World

    Much like June, i have a deep love of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It's definitely in my top 5 favorite films. Unlike June, i didn't laugh one single time at this film. I wanted to set it on fire. I remember seeing Fritz the Cat way too young, and i should have trusted my guts and not have watched this.
  17. This week: - I won't be making half my salary for April and May, i'll be making a third of my salary for April and May. - My bedroom now looks like this:
  18. Well, i'm definitely checking this out, thanks. Thanks, i'll give it a pass then . It's not even the staying inside thing, but my mental health really took a hit this past week, due to work stuff. I suffer from depression as well, but my meds are keeping me stable, so at least there's that. I didn't know Emily and Kumail had a new podcast out, i used to listen ( occasionally ) to Indoor Kids even though i'm not a gamer. I love listening to Emily whenever she guests on podcasts, i'll go and take a listen.
  19. Hi Wil, i know that this isn't your job, and thank you for starting the thread, but can you please edit the title so that it features the episode number, something like Episode 238 - Bloodshot ? It will make it easier to search/locate the ep in the future. Not trying to be a jerk, just legit asking. Thank you I've not seen this film, i'm not paying for it nor planning to stream it illegally. Is the ep fun? I usually prefer to have seen the film before listening, but i'm having a hard time lately with all of the COVID limitations of... everything, and if this ep is very dependant on the film-watching experience i think i'll give it a pass. Also, if someone can recommend any movies about puppies and/or kittens just hanging out and being happy about their lives for 90+ minutes with little to no dialogue it would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
  20. Good for you dude. I can only hope you find something that truly fulfills you. You can always count on us here for... internet support? Whatever it is we do, i'm doing it to you, right now! In a good way. Just... take it? No. I think that what i'm trying to say is that i love you mommy Thanks for the playlist, and from the bottom of my heart, i wish you all the best.
  21. True, but they are were very helpful if you wanted to locate yourself on Earth, and to know where Earth was relating to the Sun, ie, the changing of the seasons. It wasn't something that came out of boredom, it actually is pretty amazing that several different cultures thousands of miles apart from each other developed similar concepts and similar ways for dealing with the same problems. . Before this movie was announced i had never heard of the OG comics, which is strange because i guess there must have been something that was innately French about them that was somehow lost in translation? I read through Asterix, Tintin, The Smurfs, Michell Vaillant, Marsupilami, Gaston ( guys, Gaston had a " pet " seagull that he brought to work with him, plus his CAT. Imagine the nightmare it must have been for his cartoon coworkers high jinks ). Valerian? I don't know her. But from what i gathered from the internets, Valerian himself wasn't an emo tween that moped his way out of an audition for Twilight ( cough cough DaneDehaan cough ), he was kinda of a stereotypical French blowhard. Which means that Pauls sugestion of Sam Rockwell would have been GREAT. The real Valerian is basically his character from Galaxy Quest, but competent. And FYI, like Doug noted, the comic is named Valerian AND Laureline, because even though she starts out as a " maiden in distress " type character ( From the middle ages? I guess time travel is possible, it's a comic ), she grows as a person and becomes Valerians equal, so Jean Lucs decision to remove her from the films title, and to pepper the film with " jokes " about women ( A wimminz drivers joke? Seriously dude ) just speaks volumes about him as a person. . I liked the " shaking hands " montage. I cringed when i heard space Oddity, how fuck!ng dare you Jean Luc, but the montage itself is actually kinda moving with the sound off. And the " running through the biospheres " montage is amazing. It's like a glimpse into all of the movies that could have been, and all we got was this lousy sh!t pearl.

    The Fanatic (2019)

    A plug for the competition ( sorry ), the Flop House already covered it ( With Adal Rifai from Hello From The Magic Tavern ), and their take is " Oooof ". It kinda put me off seeing the film tbh.
  23. This. Plus the fact that that whole sequence ( that is beautiful btw ) took like six months to shoot, and during those six months no one came forward to say, hey, so... the people in the streets, are we... are they just going to keep on driving, minding their own business? No one is stopping, taking pic... NO?! No. Cool, cool. Flew right over my head ( twice ), only got it when i saw the wiki page. The tonal and visual shift was so jarring that it completely took me out of the film. This is actually realistic. You'd die from hypothermia before you'd suffocate for lack of oxygen, but he's only out of the ship for a couple of seconds, so he could, theoretically, survive it ( i learned this from watching The Expanse ). Besides, he's supposed to be genetically augmented/enhanced, maybe that helped. NO. No. I didn't care for it, and it's all i see whenever i see him in anything now. I'd love to see the notes he got on set though. Mila Kunis deserves better than this, and Charming Taters was charming, as long as i didn't see his ears. The final kicker for me was the final battle, when the refinery is collapsing, and suddenly we go from a super elaborate hyper detailed CGI fantasy ( Taters vs Reptilian Overlord ) into an 80s hair rock music video ( Jupiter vs Mommy Issues ). It takes talent to make real fire look fake, but they sure pulled it off. . I think i enjoyed it more than you. Beyond the idiotic script and the hubris of thinking they could actually pull this off, there are some really gorgeous shots, and the ships and the tech where beautifully rendered. The problem with the Wachowskis is that they can't edit, they just throw everything at the screen, but imo too many ideas >>> a lack of ideas, even if means things get messy. Final thoughts : So the human aliens/emperors whatever, main race caused the extinction of the dinosaurs ( cool idea ), then kinda stepped back for SIXTY FIVE MILLION YEARS, came back, spliced their DNA into Neanderthals ( I guess? Another cool idea ), got those extinct ( not cool ) and created humans. Meanwhile, i live in a 70 sqm apartment and i can't find a 10€ voucher that i know i got in February. Also, is the refinery causing the Great Red Spot in Jupiter? Again, another cool idea.

  25. I am ready to discuss this very pretty, very dumb film whenever you guys are. Don't know if it was mentioned in the HDTGM ep, but the names are next level in-your-face stupid. The dog guy is called Caine. The bee guy is called Stinger, but then they doubled down, 'cos is last name is Apini. The bird bounty hunter? Ibis. Jupiter? The planet where the human refinery is built. The shifty guy, Eddie Redmaynes PA? Chicanery. It's beyond basic, if they did it in a writing 101 class they'd get a note about it from their teacher.
