I was listening to the Virtuosity podcast and I broke down laughing at the part where they forget the actor who plays the tech geek who gets killed by SID 6.7 and just start calling him Tom Noonan and remark that probably them and the audience are the only ones who probably know who Tom Noonan actually is.

(it's Kevin O'Connor, BTW)

Oh man, their Wahlberg voices are way too hilarious.

I'm listening to the podcast right now and I was cracking up when the Wahlbergs comforting "Goober" with the Herculoids. My eyes were about to pop out from laughing so hard.

Edit: oh gently caress, I just hit the Malcolm McDowell bit.

So there's like, no possibility on this Earth that movie wasn't called Russell Mania before WWE put the kibosh on that, right?

No doubt in my mind after watching that trailer. I almost thought it was a WWE films presentation, even though it clearly is from the Air Bud production team.

28 Blondie movies in the span of 6 years? Marvel's got step up their game.

TBF, they didn't have TV and the films where 70 minutes long, so they could afford to make about two or three of them a year and put them into theaters and expect to get a return on it.

Also, it's more like 12 years, since the last film ended the series in 1950.

It's amazing. It's got an actual arc, all the characters have really interesting personalities that interact in cool ways - Fred's love of traps causes trouble with his relationship with Daphne, Velma breaks up with Shaggy because he spends too much time with Scooby and starts hanging out with a genius lesbian, etc - and the plot keeps getting trippier and trippier.

One of my favorite gags is that Daphne has five identical sisters and they're all seem to take their career guidance from Barbie: one's a doctor, one's a race car driver, one's a model, another is an astronaut and yet another is a Marine Corps officer.

There's an entire bad movie podcast to be made about lovely overly edgy 80s anime OVAs.

Sadly the only people who would make it are ultragoons

Technically, there already is one.

If you look through the review index, that's pretty much 90% of their content.

But, if we're making a new one, A.D Police Files needs to be in there. Sometimes, women with cyborg vaginas just go kill-masturbation crazy instead of have normal periods.

God damnit who invited Bruce Glover!!!

Oh man, I had to google up Glover, because I wasn't sure if he played Mr. Kidd or Mr. Wynt in Diamonds Are Forever. I came across a video of him speaking and was totally disappointed he didn't sound like that. He might look like a burned-out hippie but he sure doesn't sound like it.

I know this isn't exactly the best place to ask, but was Arrested Development the origin of that joke? (Sound of Silence)

According to Know Your Meme, yes, you can blame the 4th season of Arrested Development on that joke taking flight.

Oh God, it reads like an Onion story to my American eyes.

BTW, when they played "Run With Us", they we're right and it felt I had heard it before, so I wiki'ed it and discovered why: they played that poo poo at the end of Hobo With A Shotgun. Supposedly, the director/writer/producer was a big "Raccoons" fan and wanted to include it both as a nod but also a Canadian production.

Happy Days and Grease were 1950s nostalgia for people in the '70s. We got That 70s show in 1998. The 80s/90s nostalgia wave is natural, yet feels exacerbated due to the Internet.

You forgot American Graffiti, even though that's technically the early '60s, it's got that same vibe because of Wolfman Jack and the greasers.

Sounds like the Aussie flick Suburban Mayhem.

AMERICAN soccer fans are the anime fans of sports. Everywhere else in the world, they're just the default.

Personally, I would like America to host the Euros at some point, just for 1) American soccer fans to see loving ultras up close 2) ultras see what happen when "take no poo poo" American law enforcement gets a hold of them.

Goddamn Andrew, do we have to go on a 5 minute derail on whether or not we see Will Smith's balls or peen?

yes, yes we do :v:

Count Chocula posted:

I was kinda annoyed one of them hadn't heard of Phineas Gage. Read an amazing short story about a society of people who deliberately recreated his accident, since it removed their capacity for empathy.

Andrew not knowing about him and looking it up on Wikipedia made me go back and look into that whole story. Supposedly his behavioral changes may have been temporary and daguerreotypes uncovered sometime in 2010 suggested that he kept up his hygiene and grooming despite the injury. He managed to keep a job as a stagecoach driver in Chile for the remainder of his life, before the epilepsy from his injury killed him.

well why not posted:

Michael Dorn really wants to be a captain on a Star Trek reboot. Weirdly, he's probably the most wealthy out of the non-Patrick Stewart TNG cast.

Nah, he can't be that...

quote:

Dorn has owned several jet aircraft, including a T-33 Shooting Star, an F-86 Sabre, and currently owns a North American Sabreliner. The T-33 was often referred to as his "starship."

Welp. I guess voice acting pays pretty well.

Um, no? I was just adding something I recall reading about the dude. I want to say it was an article debunking the "he was entirely a different person" urban legend, and they went into detail on how if he wasn't at least vaguely functional, there was no way he'd be able to be a stagecoach driver for a notoriously dangerous route.

There were also scientists and doctors who had their own pet theories. His attending physician was a phrenologist and he had believed that the rod destroyed Gage's organs of Benevolence and Veneration and he basically got into a Twitter battle except with medical journals with Harvard's Professor of Surgery Henry Jacob Bigelow, who investigated Gage and said that he had fully recovered both mentally and physically.

I listened to the Final Frontier episode this week and have to say the moment that Eric suddenly goes into McCoy reciting the lyrics to "Nookie" was one of the most hilarious things I've heard from this show.

Not really, he was already an accomplished actor with several leading roles in the UK and Ireland before he got the gig on TNG. Funnily enough most of his big roles before he was Chief O'Brien, a kind work horse of a man, had him playing villains and bullies. He was also a secondary villain in Under Siege.

Yeah, he's in Layer Cake as one of Daniel Craig's associates.

A lot of the Spider-Man films suddenly dropped off.

What's this about Sony doing Valiant comics? Are they that insecure about the Spider-Man franchise?

The Sony hack maybe?

Nah, I kind of know the reason why the Spider-Man line-up just vanished: the whole retooling of the brand in light of both ASM2 and Marvel/Disney getting involved and doing the Civil War crossover.

The Valiant comics stuff is a bit of a surprise, thou. However, none of it's Turok or XO Man of War, it's peak '90s Bloodshit and maybe Harbinger if the BS movie does well.

They show the Wayne deaths every time because it's recontextualized for each individual Batman. BvS's interpretation was absolutely not filler.

Now I want the Rashomon style version of Wayne parents' death where it turns out that Thomas and Martha are horrible people who were beating up a homeless Joe Chill who asked them for money and, when Thomas pulled a gun to finish him off, Chill fought him and accidentally shot both of them.

I'm seeing tributes that included Polito and Vigoda (I think I saw one from TCM or IMDB that remembered he was in The Godfather), but forgot that David Huddleston died this year.
