  1. If the name sounds familiar, it's because it's one of the most imfamous movies of the 1990's. I have to say it's pretty much a definitive title for the question "How Does This Get Made?": It's the movie with the singing and dancing cockroaches. Yes, cockroaches, in all their filthy splendor. And while the budget for the movie was quite modest ($13 Million), it still has oddly competant animation of some highly entertaining cockroaches. What's more, the roaches all have squeaky "Alvin and the Chipmunks"-like voices -- they behave cartoonishly as though it were a children's movie. But this is NOT a movie for kids (it's the first movie release billed under "MTV Films" banner), and you would be a horrible parent to let kids watch this twisted movie, even if it is mostly free of explicit sex and violence. But how could a shitty (literally!) movie about gross cockroaches that dance around like they were in a Busby Berkeley musical be appealing to anyone? Well your answer is this: it made back less than $2 million in the box office, so it was a certafiable bomb. It attained cult film status on home video, and while it is certainly an awful movie, it's still rather silly gross fun, and it will definitely satisfy a morbid curiosity in how crezy an idea for a movie can be, and yet be fully realized into a feature length motion picture and then released in mainstream movie theaters across the country. Also, seeing as how it stars Jerry O'Connell, who has been a guest on Comedy Death Ray, perhaps you guys can get him in the studio to explain what the hell he was thinking. Anyway, "Joe's Apartment" is my nomination. Love the show, and I'm looking forward to more eps!

    Godspell (1973)

    God, this is weird. No pun intended. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w86Er2QAxc -- Yup it's based on a musical, so automatically, the story is going to hang together VERY loosely, at best. Just a tenuous link between songs, basically. But wait! It's also a religious movie technically - a "hip" retelling of the Gospel, I guess? All I know is this: this is a quintessential, bizarre 70's trippy adventure movie starring a multi-cultural group of impeccably-dressed hippy stereotypes. Who are journeying through NYC. An eerie, empty, NYC. (I should mention now that the director also did episodes of, "Rich Man, Poor Man" and "Roots". This guy had his finger on the button of what people wanted in their 1970 entertainment) This just happens to star some weird, Willy Wonka/Bob Ross/Ronald McDonald-hybrid Jesus figure wearing an off-brand Superman shirt. Who gets "crucified" to a chain-link fence at Coney Island (I think). And all the music has "Jesus", "God" or "Lord" in the lyrics (but, I'll be honest, it sounds pretty okay anyway) Oh, and in case you missed it in the trailer, it also has this thing in it: -- Note to Mods: I used the Forum search function and didn't see anything for this movie. I'm relatively sure this is a new thread, but if not, I apologize.
  3. This fucking movie needs some thorough examination. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084504/
  4. Ok, gigi-tastic, let us have it! Until you do, remember this...
  5. What does kateacola have in store and why do we have to wait?
  6. Okay Cameron usually posts this, but I haven't seen it it yet, so if i'm jumping the gun, IGNORE ME (or if I screwed up rotation) But I think it's Joel_Rosenbaum's pick this week... Am I ahead? Am I behind? Am I lost? Where am I? whose that girl?
  7. While Cameron H. sleeps off the Thanksgiving turkey let's get this going!
  8. This is a movie that i used to love as a kid, but after rewatching it as an adult i realize how awful it is. The music in it isn't great. the characters aren't likable. and the plot is lacking.
  9. I watched the full length Movie Bitches review of "La La Land" today after listening to the HDTGM prequel episode. The Movie Bitches reminded me of this terrible Woody Allen movie that has plenty for the HDTGM team to discuss. The cast of non-singing actors doing musical numbers goes on & on: Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn, Alan Alda, Natalie Portman, Gaby Hoffman, Natasha Lyonne, Edward Norton, Tim Roth. At least Drew Barrymore had the decency to demand a dub! Here's the clip sampled by the movie bitches...
  10. Whenever you're ready, Tom... What's it gonna be..?
  11. I still can't figure out if it's supposed to be a joke or not

  13. This movie is perfect for the show. You can literally ask how did this anti-racism, pro-tobacco musical with leprechauns set in an indeterminate time in Tennessee which was Fred Astaire's last musical, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and featuring Keenan Wynn in blackface got made. Doesn't that literally say it all? You really need to do this movie. It is available to rent on Amazon. I will just say "you're welcome" now, since you will thank me.

    Victor Victoria

    It seems like The Canon could always use more comedies and musicals for consideration, and in light of the recent Sound of Music episode I submit Victor Victoria. It's an utterly hilarious Blake Edwards film and a fantastic showcase for Julie Andrews. Glee's got nothing on "Le Jazz Hot". All the supporting players are delightful, particularly Lesley Anne Warren as Norma Cassidy and the waiter who steals every scene he's in. The social politics as explored via gender-bending and homosexuality bear mentioning given that this was made in 1982. Here's hoping this pops up in a future episode, but even if it doesn't than anyone reading this who has never seen Victor Victoria should definitely check it out. It's a real treat!
  15. I die a little inside every week this isn't covered...
  16. Wow. It looks like I'm the first one to request this (possibly it's under people's radar?) Tyler Perry has written a musical version of "The Passion".....starring Chris Daughtry....and Seal....set in New Orleans....to be performed live on Sunday night. http://deadline.com/2015/12/the-passion-live-musical-jesus-tyler-perry-fox-1201667399/ I guess TP has finally started reading all the fan mail and requests I've sent over the last 23847384237 years.

    Annie (2014)

    THANK YOU SONY PICTURES!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrxc8rS2W2E
  18. Now that HDTGM has done a Bond movie, it surely has to do an Elvis movie. I think it ought to be "Live a Little, Love a Little", where Elvis awkwardly attempts to be relevant to the youngsters of the late 60's by appearing in a romantic comedy where he photographs Playboy models, gets drugged and kidnapped by an insane hippie woman, and has a psychedelic musical freakout involving a man in a dog suit. It's available for rental on YouTube through WarnerVOD: Trailer here:

    Beyond the Sea

    All due respect to Kevin Spacey, who is a tremendously talented actor, but this passion project of his from 2004 is one of the most insane things I've ever seen. He produced, co-wrote, directed, and stars in a musical biopic of Bobby Darin - in most of the events of the movie Darin is in his 20's, while Spacey is in his mid 40's. This makes the whole sequence where he is wooing Sandra Dee off-the-charts creepy, because all we see is a middle-aged man relentlessly wearing down the resistance of an 18-year-old girl, WHILE SINGING. Add in the bizarre meta framing device where "Darin" is shown to be making the movie about himself, and you have one of the most earnestly-strange misfires an acclaimed actor ever used all his clout to make.

    I came across Gunday (Outlaws) after reading an article about on FiveThirtyEight explaining why it is (currently) the lowest rated film on IMDb. (See article here: http://fivethirtyeig...-movie-on-imdb/) Right now, the movie sits at a rating of 1.7. The next lowest is Birdemic: Shock & Terror at 1.8. Basically, the film angered a very vocal group that felt the film misrepresented India's role in Bangladesh Liberation War (BLW). Through the magic of the Internet 40,000+ gave the film a "1" score on IMDb (and appear to have done a similar thing on Netflix where it's also rated "1-star"). I don't know much about the BLW or if the movie's representation of it is false or accurate, but judging the movie on it's own terms it is fantastic. The movie itself has little to do the with the BLW, as it it used mostly to introduce us to the two main characters: two spunky orphans who turn to crime to survive. After a murder, the boys hop a train to Calcutta and the real story begins. Cut ahead fourteen years and they've become the biggest, baddest, handsomest, shirtlessiest outlaws in Calcutta. Wanted by the law, loved by the public. Eventually, the "best cop in Calcutta" (play by Irfan Khan, one of the most famous Indian actors) is put on the case and is determined to bring the duo down. To add to the chaos, the two men fall in love with the same girl!! Will they get caught? Who will win the love of the beautiful cabaret dancer? To be fair, the story is pretty dumb, but for two and a half hours (yeah, it's a bit too long) feelings and shirts are thrown about and, in the end, lives are changed and lessons are learned. This movie has nearly every element a movie can have: crime, rags-to-riches, comedy, revenge, romance, action, melodrama and big, ridiculous musical numbers that Bollywood is known for. If it'd only had a ghost or a creature from some darkly-colored lagoon it'd truly have everything and would have been a ten-quadrant film. Gunday is great in much that same ways as Fast & Furious 5 & 6: they throw every thing in the film, race at 100-mph and take it completely seriously. Just like in those film it works wonderfully! Oh, and there's slow-mo running. So much slow-mo running! This movie is great!

    Fame (1980)

    Looking through the recommendations, I see many movies that are generally (and honestly) regarded as bad, films that beg for 90 minutes of "can you believe ____?!" statements. But what are we to do with a film like the original Fame? It's bad in all the right places: the acting, the script, the editing... everything. Taking shots at an obviously bad remake would be too easy. The original film, a most exceptional cinematic abortion, is ideal Bad Movie Night Material. And you would never know while you hum along to the theme song, likely the only thing you know from the movie. I submit it as a special challenge for anyone looking to go further off the beaten path for bad movies. And all these years you thought it was a bulletproof classic.
