    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    @Smigg. & @GrahamS. I want to honestly thank the both of you for opening up to us all. I know personally how hard it is to even talk about this, but y'all are doing a good thing (much better than this fucking movie) and we're all here with y'all. My experiences with sexual assault and harassment started when I was just 11 years old, and has continued well into my 20s, so I seriously want to thank y'all for sharing today. To make an incredibly dark subject light again because I'm sure none of us can deal without trying to make each other laugh I present this.

    Episode 222.5 - Minisode 222.5

    I finally got to listen to June's WTF episode with Marc Maron and she's genuinely just the most lovely person and I love hearing more in depth stories about her growing up, going to NYU with Casey, experiencing 9/11 in the middle of NYC, meeting Paul, and describing their kids' personalities. This was the interview I've been dying to hear!!! Plus June called out some unconscious bias that Marc laid out and it gave me life to hear her ask, "Would you ask Paul that same question?" and listen as Marc goes oh shit u right watch me back peddle.

    HDTGM Drinking Game

    I don't think it's ever happened in earnest, but Paul F Tompkins did turn it into a bit during the After Earth episode I believe lol.

    Episode 221. The Hottie and the Nottie

    It is very sad that the only two positive representations of Albinism that we can all think of is an animated man and a CGI gorilla.

    I wish this part had made it into Sofia's movie. I would've loved to have watched Emma Watson and Leslie Mann recreate this scene lol.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I'm here to bat at your generalizations, Cameron My mom definitely has a bunch of my ballet performances on VHS but definitely same cause I think she finally ditched the VCR. She is the kind of person that will hold onto shit until it legitimately breaks and we had one of those giant box TVs with a VCR included until I got back from college lol.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    I've kept many VHS tapes because of nostalgia and the fact that many of the Disney ones aren't the same as they were on VHS. Too many added scenes or things taken out but I wanna at least have SOMETHING that is OG. I still also have Titanic because I need my future children to understand the hardship of getting to the climax of the movie and it cutting out and you having to rewind the first tape before getting to the second half of the movie lmao.

    Episode 220.5 - Minisode 220.5

    Because I'm an aesthetic bitch I have to organize all my physical media by the cover color. My DVD shelf looks like a rainbow and it makes me very very happy. No one else usually goes to my shelf to find specific things, but I know where everything is because I've memorized these DVD covers so that's all that matters to me. I put my books up by genre and keeping the series together, but someday I may switch that to colors as well.

    I genuinely thought that Paul was going to rip me apart because of my Chest Math, but to hear him say I'm right and then blame Nate well... That was pretty amazing lol!

    Hide and Seek (2005)

    If it makes you feel better, that's not what's happening in this movie.
  16. I assume she's an aunt the same way I'm an aunt to my best friends' babies. Because she seems to not only not know who her mother is but she's never met a single person from Luke's side of the family until the very end of the film. This poor girl has had her entire family kept secret from her so I'm really just guessing that this "aunt" is a really good and old friend of Luke's that he trusts enough to consider family.
  17. Thanks I finally got Guy on a Buffalo out of my head after 9 years and you've just brought it back. In return I present a Mothman song to the tune of YMCA.

    Hide and Seek (2005)

    I saw this in theaters and had to sneak in because my friends and I were all 15 and had no idea this was rated R (I guess the suicide made it rated R?) and it was stupid then and I literally just happened to catch it on TV this past weekend and it's still stupid. No one in this movie makes a good decision. @GrahamS. it's pretty exploitative about mental illness throughout the whole thing. Very 2005 mindset. Doesn't hold up well AT ALL, but nothing seems to be as gruesome as the suicide, but that's just in my view of it.
  19. New theory! The Eteon voice is the mother cause she's pissed as fuck that he took her daughter away. Or she's just actually always been a villain and that is why he took the daughter away.
  20. Okay I believe it is time for the moments in movies when I get most frustrated... That's right it's time for This Week in Feminism. I was delighted to hear an audience member mention things that I also wanted to mention, because one of my first points was, "Where are the fucking women?" But the response of the crew didn't satisfy me and here's why - Yes, Hattie is a badass through and through. She was an operative for MI6 and went head to head with Luke Hobbs without even blinking an eye. She sacrificed herself so that Idris Elba wouldn't get the virus, and at the end of the day it was her plan that got the blood machine so that she could ultimately live. Definitely a badass. However, that doesn't actually answer the question. Hattie is one woman. To answer the question, "Where are the women?" with, "Well Hattie is a badass," implies that multiple women can't just be in scenes talking to each other because we already have the one woman being a badass and that's good enough right? They also mentioned the team of vigilante women lead by Eiza Gonzalez in Russia, but here's my problem with them - Only Eiza has any lines. There are 4 other women in this group and their only purpose for this movie is to look sexy in lingerie and be intimidating. That's not really showing any other badass women considering we never actually got to see them in action. The marketing for this movie completely hyped up Eiza's role and it really disappointed me that she didn't have anything better to do for a longer portion of the movie. Michelle Rodriguez had posted after F8 that if this franchise didn't step up it's representation of women then she would leave the series, and I think with this movie they took one tiny baby step in the right direction. Now I know this movie is a spin-off and has nothing to do with the set of movies that Michelle was actually talking about because she's in the camp of "fuck Hobbs & Shaw" but it's still part of the series none the less. With Hattie being a total badass and being central to the plot instead of a side character I do think that they want women to be part of the story, but in my opinion, even though Hattie is a total badass, she's just a plot point she's not actually involved in her own story a la Natalie Portman in Thor: The Dark World. If you took that virus out of Hattie's blood she no longer becomes relevant to this story, and it still all resolves around Hobbs & Shaw more than likely doing the bulk of the work to get the virus away from Eteon. She's kidnapped twice to be rescued by the two men, and in the final climax fight of the whole movie she's regulated to sitting in the rain with a gun pointed at her head. To me, this isn't badass empowering writing. This is lazy "feminism" that is stuck in the early 2000s. But honestly the thing that frustrated me the most is that this didn't even pass The Bechdel Test. It would've been so fucking easy for them to do. They had multiple named women who were literally standing in the same room together, but never once do any of them address each other, instead they talk to the men about things the other woman brought up instead. The female guard with Helen Mirren doesn't have a name - Fail Hattie is the only woman on her entire team - Fail Eiza is the only named and speaking woman on her team - Fail Hobb's daughter never speaks to the woman she is staying with - Fail Hattie and Eiza stand face to face and only talk to Hobbs & Shaw - Fail Hobbs's mother doesn't have a name (she is named on IMDB but they never once say it in the movie) - Fail There are no lines between Helen Mirren and Hattie at the end of the movie - Fail It's the simplest of things that in 2019 should literally be the bare minimum for writing female characters. I'm not asking for the entire story to be changed, because honestly the overarching thing doesn't bother me despite poking holes in the "baddassery" of it. But to not have two women even speak to each other when they're literally standing face to face discussing ultimate plans for how to get a blood machine is absolutely ridiculous. Literally I just want women to be able to talk to each other about things not related to men. That would be grand.
  21. Oh right yes okay, cause that was like a revenge killing for them killing Owen, right? For some reason I replaced Deckard with Owen in my memory but you typing out the line brought it back.
  22. Speaking of Owen Shaw - I feel like this franchise forgot that he existed. All those flashbacks and the way that Helen Mirren talks it's just always been Deckard and Hattie, but legit Owen Shaw was a character, and isn't that who actually killed Han? Or am I not remembering this whole story line properly?
  23. I'm currently using Nyx's liquid liner and it's A+++! Also, I heard on Natch Beaut someone say that Tom Ford's liner is actually supposed to be like the new KVD because everyone is looking for that same quality without all the terribleness.
