    A Time to Kill (1996)

    Catoonishly racist thugs rape and attempt to kill Samuel Jackson's daughter, in response Jackson shoots them dead in the court house. Matthew McConaughey is his lawyer The majority of the movie revolves around McConaughey establishing an insanity defense that makes no sense. Here's a list of bonkers things that happen as part of the movie: At one point as part of a C-plot the NAACP is framed as a villain. Kevin Spacey plays a young version of Francis Underwood McConaughey, ostensibly the hero of the movie, drives drunk multiple times. Sandy Bullocks appears as a Northern white savior for McConaughey's Southern white savior There is a very dumb running joke about McConaughey mispronouncing the name "Roark" as "Ro-ark". Instead of running away from a bomb planted at his his house McConaughey picks it up, thereby triggering the explosive, and chucks it just far enough away that no one gets hurt. As the only lawyer in a struggling legal practice McConaughey has somehow racked up a $2,000 electric bill in 1996 dollars. Multiple people are almost murdered as part of the KKK protests of the trial and no one suggests that they move the trial. Sam Jackson definitely killed those guys and doesn't have a real defense. Oliver Platt's hair and extraneous character McConaughey goes temporarily insane when he thinks his dog has been blown up. People keep referencing how "there hasn't been any Klan in [Mississippi town where the movie takes place] for years." As though Klan members in other parts of Mississippi couldn't easily show up there. There's a D-plot about a Klan member that's secretly a good guy that never goes anywhere other than him giving McConaughey a head's up when they plan on blowing up his house, etc. A big chunk of the defense rests on the concept that a key witness is not really a statutory rapist if she was 17 and he was only 6 six years older than her. (Did Roy Moore write this movie) McConaughey gives a big speech about the assault on Jackson's daughter and ends it with "now imagine she's white", as though the audience couldn't have empathy with a non-white child victim until McConaughey pointed it out. The ending credit music is a gospel choir. The subject matter may make this too dark for HDTGM but if you told me the guy that made Batman & Robin also made a movie about race relations, this is more perfect than anything I could imagine.

    Episode 248 Velocipastor

    I did not enjoy watching this movie. If you are going to wink then wink hard. There were long stretches of this movie where things were played fairly straight and boring. How can a 70 minute movie seem too long? The only parts I enjoyed were the bits with Frankie Mermaids. This might be due to seeing the raptor/ninja fight a couple years ago on youtube so its intentional shittiness wasn't novel anymore. If you want to do another satirical, low budget film then I would recommend Cannibal the Musical. The South Park guys made it while they were still in film school. It's much weirder and funnier movie. It might actually be too good for a HDTGM.

    Beauty and the Beast (2017)

    This movie was bad and weird.

    The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

    There's a ton of expository only dialogue and other goofy nonsense. It's available on Seth Rogan's favorite streaming service Tubi.

    Kickboxer (1989)

    Maybe they can do some back to back shows where they do this one and one of the sequels that look pretty bad in their own right.

    The Last Days of American Crime (2020)

    This movie is very much based around what Euro trash coke heads think is cool. A lot of the dialogue/plot makes no sense. There's a scene half way through that is The Room level bonkers.

    Wing Commander (1999)

    This looks like an aggressively 90s movie. Nick Wiger talked about it on another podcast so this could be a could cross over episode with How Did This Get Played.

    Purple Rain (1984)

    It is an awesome film. It is also extremely weird and I would love to get everyone's takes on how and why it was made.
  9. Emma Watson CANNOT sing, which seems like a problem for a musical Luke Evans weighs 160 lbs, a proper Gaston would eat him for breakfast on top of his five dozen eggs The CGI is a weird uncanny valley where it's not quite photorealistic nor fantastic The Josh Gad character is a just a mess

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    How hard is it to get guests for road shows? I would have loved Hannibal Burress's takes on this movie.

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    First off I want qualify that I was not the adult man in a diaper. Secondly, I feel like there needed to be more discussion of Lola Bunny who launched a thousand furry fetishes; in a kids' movie no less. https://www.instagram.com/p/B5I_AfsgdPU/?igshid=yeoj6jsm0km4 Thirdly as a Chicagoan(suburbs count fight me) I feel like this episode totally counteracted the good will from taking down our collective cinematic villain (Blues Brothers 2000). The soundtrack was great, kids loved it, it's already a movie where cartoon characters exist in parallel to normal reality so why are you looking for plot holes in the sci-aspects? PS. Why no discussion of Wayne Knight's hero's journey? He follows Michael into Tune World when no one else will. He steps into the game against the Monstars knowing that they will annihilate him. He should be the protagonist of the movie.

    Iron Mask (2019)

    Jackie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, AND bad CGI? Seems like a winner especially since the plot appears unintelligible. They go from the Tower of London to the Silk Road? Why do all these China financed movies take place on the Silk Road a la Dragon Blade?

    Episode 232.5 — Minisode 232.5

    I have a lot of questions regarding the selection of Space Jam. First of them, how dare you?

    Predators (2010)

    A lot of big acting choices on display.

    Splice (2009)

    Maybe too gross to talk about.
