What episode has them going on a little tangent about Unsolved Mysteries and how the show started running out of actual murders/missing persons/lost heir material so they started running stories about the Bigfoot and such? Like a dream, I can vividly picture the bit, but all the surrounding details are fuzzy, so if anyone here remembers, then maybe you can help solve a mystery

The Wizard. It's the ep I happened to listen to yesterday!

The first two films I recall watching in theaters were TMNT 2 and Look Who's Talking Now. I wonder if that traumatized me somehow.

Can't recall any specific movie I watched a lot as a kid though. Maybe that Land Before Time sequel where the waterfall stopped.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I also watched Casper: A Spirited Beginning WAY too many times as a kid.

I always found people's (especially Dan Ryckert's) fixation on this utterly baffling: through all my childhood me and my family would use kitchen scissors to cut pizza and I still do for the most part. I haven't seen the movie so I guess he uses office scissors?

Anyway, they better be spammed with requests for Book of Henry.

Edit:vvv Good man.

Despite not having seen Boss Baby I'm willing to bet the sole reason for the Oscar nom was "there are 5 slots and it was either this or the loving Emoji Movie"

I don't recall exactly where I heard this (might have even been these forums) but I recall someone proposing the thought experiment of reading this book but replacing every single pop culture reference with completely fictional titles and objects which would only be known to people inside that universe (i.e. instead of Back To The Future, have them call it Bloogertron or something). It would become utterly unreadable.

I'm not too crazy about Blame It On Outer Space (maybe it's because he's playing a character) but he's definitely my favorite in WHM due to his voice and sense of comedic timing. All of my hysterical laughter moments have been one of his random one liners (my favorite is probably his Jeffrey Dahmer joke in Demolition Man)

I actually watched I Know Who Killed Me in the lead-up to the episode, and by god it's a rough sit. I don't know if I'd call it "barely a movie" but it's sure as poo poo in that zip code. It's hard to talk about because it's a maelstrom of nonsense, just one awful example of writing, acting and filmmaking after another, and it doesn't have a coherent narrative to give you sure footing in the storm. It's absolutely awe-inspiring and I'd recommend it in the way I'd recommend Foodfight, Master of Disguise or the Star Wars Holiday Special - it's an uniquely abrasive experience.

As multiple reviews pointed out at the time, when you literally have ART BELL show up in the middle of the movie to essentially EXPLAIN WHAT’S HAPPENING, your movie has PROBLEMS.

I recall watching several eps of the Iron Man cartoon as a kid but the only thing I actually REMEMBER is the theme song ("I! AM! I-RON-MAAAAAAAAN!"), M.O.D.O.K being reduced to an idiotic lackey and them trying to make the Mandarin not racist by making him inexplicably green a la James Bond Jr.

Lost In Space was also a movie I watched several times as a kid, to my eternal shame. Can't wait to hear their take on "I love you wife".

Jesus Christ, if you're not on the Patreon, Jungle 2 Jungle is incredibly worth it. Cabin's Seagal impersonation and the whole ex-pats bit is amazing. I was shaking stifling laughter during a bus ride, but lost it when they started riffing on the actor trying to hide his Bronx accent and continuing to escalate it. It might be my favorite episode.

I have repeatedly joked that Depardieu and Seagal should make a movie together (for example a remake of Face/Off since they have the same body type :v:) but their sitcom idea is far more hilarious.

My personal favorites so far in no particular order:

- Demolition Man (Stallone impressions, especially the "Save Tonight" bit)
- Bee Movie (for just the right amount of political humor and the Bee puns, especially "Steve Beenon")
- Jungle 2 Jungle (again, the Seagal/Depardieu/Snowden sitcom. "Listen to me you fat gently caress, it's called the chore wheel")
- Batman Forever (no particular reason)
- Batman vs Superman (anytime they mock the Kentucky senator)
- Ducktales (them finally calling out Scrooge McDuck for the miserly bastard he is, the nephews impressions. "I could have you killed!")
- Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe (the "probably Secundus" gag)

I rewatched all of the X-files about a year back before the new episodes came out and I still can't remember what the gently caress happens in I want to believe. Xibit is there with a pedophile priest and something about Russian dog heads I think?

Not dog heads, just regular heads. Xzibit and pedophile priest Billy Connolly were there though.

The reason why you hardly remember that movie is because NOTHING HAPPENS IN IT. I wouldn't be surprised if we end up with another Ultraviolet style ep since so little happens in that movie besides Mulder and Scully repeating the same discussion about "Is this real or not" and "Not giving up" over and over.

Only other things I remember was Amanda Peet's hilarious death by elevator shaft, Mulder and Scully staring at a portrait of George W. Bush while the X-Files theme plays and Xzibit bursting into a room yelling "DOWN ON THE FLOOR! DOWN ON THE FLOOR! EVERYBODY GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR" as if he was suddenly recording a new track.

It's amazing to me that nobody got this idea. Like Depp was okay in The Rum Diary but Williams would have been much better in that role.

Depp LOOKS a lot more like Thompson though. Also since Depp and Thompson were so close, I like to think he has Thompson's blessing to play him whenever.

Chris Carter is yet another creator who doesn't seem to get his own creation.

Even before I Want To Believe people were saying that writers like Morgan and Wong were the true talent behind the show. I agree that they should have Roddenberry'd him out of the revival.

Yeah, originally they were gonna follow up on the bug aliens - I don't think they're ever named specifically but I might be wrong - but IIRC it was gonna cost a fair bit of money to flesh them out more. Season 2 was strike shortened and I vaguely remember the budget for that season was smaller than most of the other TNG seasons as a result. So the Borg were created because it was simply a lot cheaper to make leather/latex costumes and paint dudes albino than it would've been to make the bug creates.

Of course Q Who was an overbudgeted episode for that season anyway, which is why it ended on Shades of Grey :v:

Conspiracy really had a convoluted production history: the original concept was for it to be a straight forward political thriller about Starfleet being slowly taken over by militarists but naturally Roddenberry vetoed it sinch such a thing could never happen in the perfect Federation. Having it go from that into the Borg is kinda hilarious.
