    Episode 249.5 — Minisode 249.5

    I'd like to thank Jason for recommending "What Had Happened Was..." As a latent Prince Paul fan, it's just great and hilarious. I usually hate music interviews, too.

    Iron Eagle (1986)

    Maybe Billy Zabka can guest on this episode?
  3. Fuck yes, Problem Child is on that list.

    Musical Mondays Week 86 Preview (SlidePocket's Pick)

    I liked this movie. If I recall correctly, David Bowie comes out looking terrible in it.

    Stone Cold (1991)

    I'm on board for Stone Cold, but if they were going to double feature with NFL legends, they had a chance with The Running Man.

    Musical Mondays Week 75 Fear of a Black Hat

    My apologies to Larry B. Scott, who I mistakenly called Larry Charles. Never say die, Iron Eagle.

    Good choices, guys. My object of resentment will always remain Forrest Gump. A good portion of this is because it is nostalgic garbage, but a bigger part stems from my time working at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company.

    Musical Mondays Week 75 Fear of a Black Hat

    I'm at home with my daughter, who had a nasty fall yesterday. It's been a harrowing 24 hours to say the least but all will be well. The upshot is that I've got a little time of my hands to weigh in on this, one of my favorite movies from high school. Like Cameron and grudian pointed out, this movie holds up well enough, although for 1993 it is a little backward looking. One of the hidden gems of this movie is that you get a window into a time that is nearly completely forgotten now. Almost anyone can remember Vanilla Ice and his tragicomic career has been covered elsewhere, but who remembers P.M. Dawn? I mean they fucking nailed those guys. Plus, all the Cross Colours (!), a brand that was pretty much dead by the time this movie was released. Anyways, I have a fair number of thoughts on this movie but I'll leave it there. I'm generally impressed that they could pull this movie off for $1 million and a single recognizable actor (Larry Charles).

    Wait until Paul learns the translation for La Marseillaise...

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    Here's an aside: Congratulations June on appearing on Maron's podcast -- surprised it hadn't happened already (Paul was on WTF episode 124, Jason on episode 824).

    Episode 221.5 - Minisode 221.5

    Don't watch Irreversible.
  13. Rutger Hauer, Mimi Rogers, and Joan Chen in some pure nineties trash. I don't know when they changed the title. It was definitely "Deadlock" upon release:

    Episode 219.5

    Drunk food is entirely location-dependent. Southern California has to be late night taco shops; in San Diego it was -Berto's (there are like 10 places with that suffix). In Seattle it's gotta be Dick's. At home it's popcorn.
