The Empty Man (2020)
kelkel posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsThe Empty Man made me do it... The first night you hear him. The second night you see him. The third night he finds you. Boom! Studios & HBO presents...The Empty Man........ The start of the film is terrifying & semi-intriguing. Four backpackers in Bhutan stumble upon a cave where a large God-like skeleton died meditating, one gets transfixed & put into a catatonic state. During the night, he whispers to his wife, I'm not going to lie, the concept is there and The Empty Man had me curious from the beginning to end. But in the end, I felt it was a waste of 2 hours. Although after a day of reflection, I'm still thinking about it & conjuring new interpretations. I don't think I can ever unsee this movie, which could be a good thing or a bad thing. Roger Ebert said, "The Empty Man draws comparisons to junky studio fare like The Bye Bye Man and Slender Man but this is a far more ambitious and accomplished piece of work than its reputation." There was a doll-like 18-year-old Only Fans girl with a bowl haircut and a ton of unnecessary flashbacks, but it was real creepy & there were beautifully shot sequences. I want to give credit to a lot of the actors that had me & discredit to a couple as well. You'll see... I think this film could possibly be a cult classic someday, pun intended. Love you all. kelkel
Would You Be Ok With Paying For A Musical Monday Movie?
gigi-tastic posted a topic in How Did This Get Made?Hi guys! So this is my first time making a topic I hope that I did right. So I'm up next after @WatchOutForSnakes on the Musical Monday rotation and I have a few ideas but so far nothing I want to do is streaming for free. I wanted to ask if you would be ok with renting a movie? I would be willing to pay someone to get it to Rabbit( because I don't know how to) if need be. If that's too much trouble I can pick something else. I'm just trying to get ready in time because I always forget until that Monday. Both ideas are two of my favorite classic films and I think we should have fun with either but I have some others as well I can look for!
A free HDTGM inspired movie, for you!
AdamCanuck posted a topic in How Did This Get Made?Hi there! My name is Adam, and I'm a writer/director in Vancouver BC. A few years ago I was listening to the Phantom episode of HDTGM, when Jason referred to a scene as "recon the movie." Or maybe it was "reconnaissance the movie"? Either way, I thought it was a funny idea, so I wrote a script, and we found a parking lot, and it's an actual movie that you can hold in your hands (if you download it and then hold your laptop or whatever...) Point is, we're nobody so nobody's seen it. So we'd like for YOU to see it! It's called The Reconnaissance of Josie Laurene and it's literally one character sitting in a parking lot for an hour! But a fun hour...? And look, a trailer! If you're so inclined, follow this here link , click on the purchase button, and use code "howdidthisgetmade" at checkout to receive all of the movie for non of the money! Thanks everyone! Adam
Troop Beverly Hills (1989)
RobertColquhoun posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsLets face it. Shelley Long taking over her daughters Beverly Hill's girl scout (or whatever) troop only to show them the merits of being a housewife is GARBAGE. Who thought this would be a good movie? I remember this movie playing on tv in the 90's when I was a kid and thinking it was terrible even then.

Say It Isn't So (2001)
EddieFeeley posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsI'll come out and admit this right now: I haven't watched this film and, according to the box office report on the wikipedia page, no one else did, either. However, I was looking through the recently added to Netflix list and this movie happened to be on it, so I decided to look into it. The main premise, the premise the movie sells itself on, is that two people meet, fall in love, have sex, then find out they might be siblings. And it just gets crazier from there. There are random twists, stupid character choices, and all the incest humor you never asked for. It seems like a remarkably bad movie and, now that it's on Netflix, it seems like the perfect time to give it watch.

Toys - Toys & Good Morning, Vietnam
justsomeman posted a topic in How Did This Get Made?I haven't seen this one since I was real little but one of you during this episode were making fun of Joan Cusack's response to Robin Williams's smoking suit with "That's funny." I was at work yesterday when I had an epiphony. I had heard that similar line before but in a different film, which one of you mentioned in the podcast: Good Morning Vietnam. Check out the scene here: Next-level bonkers. Sorry, not a correction or ommission but I HAD to bring this up.
