Episode 140 - Mannequin Two: On the Move (w/ Steve Agee)

Recommended Posts

1. I almost didn't recognize this as your post because your avatar is no longer a cat.

HER NAME IS PUSHEEN

 

3. OH MY GOD YOU'RE RIGHT! I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE THIS AND I JUST SNORTED I LAUGHED SO HARD. I swear to all that is holy the next time he uses that I'm pointing this out to him. He's just the worst.

I had to double-check the meaning of zeitgeist. I don't think I've ever used the word, not even in school essays. And I've only came across zeitgeist in academic and journalistic works. Ok, so now I've used that word at least twice.

Funny story about that Nic Cage pillow. Someone anonymously sent it to a friend of mine about a month ago and she sent a text to our friend group and asked if any of us were responsible. We weren't but my goodness I wish I was. To my knowledge she still never has figured out who sent her that pillow.

p.s. strictly on the aural quality, if Nick Kroll and Pete Holmes had a kid, it would be Steve Agee. Fantastic guest.

Ugh, fucking Romeo. He's a teenager who gets himself murdered over a 13-year-old girl when 72 hours earlier, he was in love with ANOTHER GIRL. And because of him, that tween kills herself. "Two houses, both alike in dignity..." Oh, you must mean zero amount of dignity.

 

Oh, let's not let Juliet completely off the hook considering her attraction to him seems to stem from the fact that Romeo is more Zac Efron, while Paris is more Crypt Keeper. They are both shallow, horrible little monsters. Yes, R&J is a tragedy, but not for the reasons most people seem to think.

If anyone is in the mood for some Romeo and Juliet related comedy this week's Spontaneanation is great.

This movie used to play on Comedy Central when I was a kid, was so happy when I realized HDTGM was doing it. Even as a youngen I knew this was a 'so bad it's good' movie.

 

For the Barbie butt debate, we need to call upon Blake Harris. He wrote a book (Console Wars) which mainly focused on the head of Sega of America; Tom Kalinski, who Blake interviewed for the book. Before Tom went to Sega, he was responsible for resurrecting the Barbie doll. I'm thinking Tom could answer the question; Where does the butt start?

And, while we're making some movies, why isn't there a porn parody of these movies called, as Steve suggested, called Mannequim about a Real Doll come to life? Oh, right -- Because that's creepy. Never mind. ;)

Technically it is not considered a tragedy in the Greek sense (such as Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello and King Lear.) A classic tragedy involves a royal's hubris causing not only their death, but losing what they seek. The hubris does not belong to R&J, they simply love each other. The fault is in the families that cause the tragedy, not R&J... sorry, theatre major who played Mercutio. Honestly I dislike this play due to the horrible drag of the last half of the show. I remember waiting for the end of the show, hearing Juliet die only to realise it was her first death and dreading yet another 30 minutes of Romeo whining. (no one can embody a whining dick like Leo who is, in reality, a whiny dick) The real tragedy is the the only character's worth watching (Mercutio and Tybalt) die half way in.)

That is a legit amazing thing to anonymously send to a stranger. I want to do that to someone I don't know, but still want to find out how they took it..

 

I have bought my brother Nic Cage pillows (not those ones) and a shirt with his screaming face all over, and those are damn good presents.

Did anyone else have to freeze frame the ending to see who exactly was in the backseat of the getaway car? Gail and Andy were in the front seat, which is all fine, sure. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Mr. James and Jason's mom were sitting in the back. In the end scene, Jason gives Jessie a non-cursed necklace (hooray!) in the store with Meshach there, then they exit the store to get in the car. The 2 sycophants are outside to bid them adieu, but Mr. James is not with them, because he was already in the car apparently. I wonder if he was supposed to get together with Jason's mom? Because now that I think about it, what was even the point of Mr. James going to the match making service? Was it supposed to be a meet cute? We're gonna need a director's cut to get to the bottom of this.

 

Also, the actor who played Mr. James was also the voice of the dad in the tv show Dinosaurs!

Now I'm curious. If you wouldn't classify it as a tragedy, what would it be? I'm firmly against it being a romance, so.. Is it just a drama then? Or cautionary tale..?

 

Also, that Romeo + Juliet movie is one of my guilty pleasures. I did a project on it in college where I had to watch it over and over to find clips to splice together, which made me a little insane, but I still like it, haha.

Well, the first part of the play actually plays more as a Comedy. And while it may not be a Tragedy in the Greek sense, I would certainly still consider it a Tragedy--as I would any story that ends with a couple of teenagers committing suicide and the stabby weapons deaths of two others. Maybe it's a drama with tragic elements?

 

But, yes, I'm curious as well. If not a tragedy, then what? I was an English Lit major, so I might have to defer to Ultimate Trekker's knowledge on this one.

 

Although, I'm glad we can all agree that Mercutio was the shit!

I rewatched the first one today, and Hollywood really is the best person in either movie. To the point where i'm extremely disappointed that neither of the movies ended up with him finding the romance he was pining for.

 

Just that scene where he first comes across Andrew Mccarthy trying to introduce him to a re-manniquinned Kim Cattrall he doesnt judge or make any jokes at his expense. He just tells him he understands and how fabulous a person he is.

 

If only we lived in a world with more Hollywood Montrose's walking around we might be a more civilized society.

(pushing glasses up nose) On the title card there is no Two, 2 or II. It is called Mannequin | On the Move.

In Italy, it was called Help! I'm Lost In New York.

OMISSION: There's a connection with another HDTGM movie: Mac & Me. Stewart Raffill directed both films, and in both films the father is dead, which we learn by seeing a photo of the dead father, and in both a dummy falls from a great height. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Paul's on today's episode of "Talk is Jericho" with Chris Jericho. He talks about the incident from the "Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counsellor" episode where June smacked a motherfucker, SNL auditions, a little HDTGM, and going to watch movies on his own along with other things.

The two sycophants, by the way, have the most awkward interaction off in that corner while the credits start rolling. Watch it happen -- they cannot figure out whether they're supposed to hug, hold hands, be people, anything. I couldn't take my eyes off that corner, it was so weird.

Great episode guys!

 

I have to say the sorcerer seems to be very bad at what he does. Instead of killing or bannishing the peasant girl he freezes her for a thousand years under the pretense that he is protecting the queen and her kingdom, as a consequence the kingdom is cursed with eternal rain. If he was saving the life of the peasant girl because he desired her for himself why wait a thousand years so that a distant relative could be with her? Why not a couple of generations instead of 40-50?
