The new episode's audio quality was really good. So much better than Master of the Universe. Masters' audio quality was so bad I did the unthinkable and skipped that episode.

The audio quality in the Scream 3 episode was okay but if I remember correctly, there was this girl in the foreground audio with a really loud laugh. It was kind of hilarious.

I just got done listening to the Planet of the Apes episode and their Mark Walhberg character is my favourite.

First heard it in Entourage, loved it.

Then heard it in Apes, double-loved it.

Until this episode, I legit thought that Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead and Adventures in Babysitting were the same movie. I spent the whole time wondering why they skipped the Thor part until the end.

I legit watched Adventures in Babysitting in preparation of this episode. When The Babysitter's Dead I was like, "Wait, what? Oh yeah, are the 'Dishes are done, man' movie."

Not long after WHM covered it, it's the tenth anniversary of Lady In The Water and pop culture podcast Thirty Twenty Ten namedropped We Hate Movies when LITW was brought up in this weeks episode. We even got a similar Giamatti impression.

I feel real sorry for Paul Giamatti. Everyone treats him like a huge dork when he actually seems pretty cool.

I just finished binging WHM after starting just under a year ago (September 2015). It was a year ago I sampled the Rocky IV, Three Men and a Baby, and Super Mario Bros episodes and went from Number One With A Bullet.

I'm still amazed how easy this podcast goes down. The hosts are extremely likable, but ya'll knew that. My only regret is not jumping on the wagon sooner.

This prolly wasn't the intention of the WHM crew, but I really want to see this Jupiter Transcending movie. It sounds like Fifth Element-esque entertainment and I'll be watching it soon.

It wasn't great but if you go into Jupiter Ascending expecting complete trash you'll be surprised. What's hurting it most is that it feels like it could be less plotted and 15 minutes shorter.

The latest episode was great but I don't care what no one say, Ernest is charming.

Also I'm re-binging the WHM and returning to the Babycakes episode was a treat. It's a great episode full of interesting discussion, probably because Babycakes sounds like a non-stop boatride of horrible. It's in my top five WHM.

My rebinge of the WHM archive has reintroduced me to The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking, which remains one of my favourite episodes. They're really good at explaining what's weird or bad about a movie without you having to watch it. A number of WHM episodes are on movies that aren't the typical trash fires that everyone in the Bad Movie Sphere knows about. They're the mediocre-to-bad failures that time forgot and when WHM does an episode on them, that's when they're skills really shine. I don't think WHM can truly have a bad episode because of how good they are.

I loved the return of Super Nice Amy Adams, and I hope she did condescendingly pass on Collateral Beauty. Movie deserves it.

Also, my binge has brought me through classic episodes like Invisible Child which I consider to be one of the most consistently entertaining episodes. Another couple favourites are Step Up Revolution, which has a sexting gag that made me laugh out loud, and Alex Cross which clearly illustrates just how bleakly awkward that film is.

The archives end with the Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human which I'll admit to having a sick curiosity for. I've said it before that WHM is good at digging out those bad movies that aren't in the usual bad movie sphere, and MHEH is a good testament to that.

Re-listening to the Earnest episode made me curious. What's the worst movie you guys have seen the most times? As in, one you didn't like even the first time but you just ended up seeing it over and over again for whatever reason (being couchridden with a hangover and the TV's on Comedy Central and the remote's far away, for instance)

For me it's probably WHM classic Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Forever taunted by that full-size Crackle bar...

Growing up in the same house as my sisters, I suffered through many second-hand views of classics like the Little Rascals and a few others. As for ones I watched halfway willingly I have no idea. Probably Space Jam.

In my adult years I've willingly sat through almost 3 screenings of Christmas With The Kranks. To keep myself entertained, I've imagined what the movie would be like if it turned into an R-rated house invasion movie where the neighbours are trying to siege the Krank house and Jamie Lee Curtis has to fend them off.

I've seen Eight Crazy Nights way too many goddamn times. That is a purely wretched movie if I've ever seen one, and a great episode too!

There's a special kind of stank that comes out when the WHM guys do really creepo movies like My Father the Hero. Hearing about these movies is discomforting but We Hate Movies is undeniably on their A-game.

I never saw it but The Last Airbender sounds like what happens when you try to cram a whole television season's worth of plot into a two hour movie. Or at least that's one of the things going wrong.

Also, third time listening to the Stay Tuned episode of WHM and it's one of my favourites. All the jokes about Jeffery Jones "troubles" are killer

Chris Cabin half-assing the Highlander job was hilarious and would most definitely make a great variety show sketch

My rebinge has brought me up to Easy Rider 2 which goes down as another one of my favourite episodes. It's a weird rear end movie so the WHM guys have so much to riff on.

All episodes of WHM are entertaining (even the early ones) but this one was a bit rough to listen to. Wow, did they hate that movie, it doesn't even sound like the kind of movie that's easy to make fun of.

As for who is watching all those Resident Evil and Underworld movies, I think Stephen(?) was on the money when he said there's a large group of movie goers that just want to see sci-fi action or paranormal fantasy action and will take anything passable. I'm like that. Pacific Rim wasn't a great flick but how often am I going to see a giant robot vs kaiju flick? There are genre niches to be filled with "eh"-quality movies.

Come to think of it, me and my mom wanted to see Ultraviolet when we first saw the trailer. In the end, we didn't but I have a feeling I would have liked it. I only developed the ability to recognize artistic flaws about three years ago.

An Overboard episode of WHM is a dream come true because that's a film that's so blatantly creepy that even a dense fella like me can notice. The sadist in me wants to see the story of Overboard directed by someone like the Coen brothers where Goldie Hawn offs herself halfway through the movie and the Kurt Russell character has to deal with covering his tracks as Goldie Hawn's family tries to track down what happened to their daughter while Russell's kids are traumatized with their new mother killing herself kickstarting their homicide career.

Speaking of weird alternate versions of film, the funniest part of the Mrs. Doubtfire episode is all the alternate dramatic versions of that film the WHM guys brainstorm up. It was a good episode to revisit. The Blame it on Rio episode was a different story. That episode was a lot harder to listen to the second time around.

Coming back to the Butterfly Effect was a joy and that might be my favourite WHM episode. The overall sophormoric edginess to it is so laughable the WHM guys know exactly how to roll their eyes at it. I never saw it but I can picture what kind of movie it is. It's exactly as Andrew said, that it's freshman's first screenplay and full of amateur mistakes and quirks.

I don't know whether it was "good" or "bad" but it seems like an obvious listener request.

It's one of those movies that might be too bizarre and bad for WHM. It's just a series of bad ideas, everything about that film is grotesque.When I first saw it was almost enlightening. Admittedly it took me a long time to develop any kind of taste and CitH was several examples on what not to do in your movie. I had already hated it but it got non-stop viewership while I was babysitting my nephew. When he decided it was time to switch over to Chicken Little, it was a relief.

Sidekicks really spoke to me as a kid because I was one of those kids with his head in the clouds. Though, I didn't have weird hero fantasies with Chuck Norris where my friends almost become victims to sexual violence. Really looking forward to the Howard the Duck episode next week- been waiting for that one.

In the meantime I've reached the TMNT2 episode of my rebinge and the most egregious, ludicrous opinion that the WHM guys have had is that TMNT is a worse film because it tries to have serious emotional nuance. Like if you can't enjoy the drama of four mutant turtles and their missing rat sensei then you might be an enemy of movies

It's weird them talking about a Charles Bronson movie. Was this the first time he's been on the show?

The high-pitched imitation of bemused audience members Stephen does in the Three Men And A Baby episode is what sold me on WHM. Re-hearing him do that made me cackle out loud. Couple episodes later was the Super Mario Bros episode which was another sampler I tried when I wanted to check out WHM and its also really good. My third time listening and its still a fun time.

One of my favourite mailbag episodes is the Hamsters, Hobbits, and Horrible Parents episode where Chris recalls seeing Sophie's Choice with his dad and all his dad can say is, "The nazis... they were trouble." The mailbag episodes are such good bonuses to the mainline show.

I really wish that the Transformers films were directed by anyone other than Bay. Even if they were just disposable popcorn flicks, they'd at least be watchable. I have only seen the first two and its been years but listening to these episodes reminds me how painfully unentertaining these films are. If the TF movies had the quality of something like Pacific Rim I would be completely content.

I never saw the third and only saw bits of the fourth but apparently the fourth one is a little better than the others?

DoubleCakes

Clearly I liked Pacific Rim a lot more than others. I don't think it's great, but that's the point. It's on a watchable level that the Transformers flicks aren't. Obviously I want my Transformers movies to be the Citizen Kane of Giant Robot movies but if I can't have that I'll gladly have them be on the same mediocre level as PR. A Transformer movie having the eh quality of Pacific Rim would be an improvement.

The third Transformers film sounds like the most nothing out of all of them. I just finished listening to the episode and I can't even remember what the actual plot was. I remember the jokes, but not the story of the film.

Anyway, looking over the last 20 WHM episodes I re-binged, I notice that when WHM do meh comedy films from the 80s and 90s, there's a good chance I'll like those episode. Those movies usually aren't terribly offensive, they don't deal with serious themes, and their failures at being funny are good fodder for the WHM guys. Teen Wolf Too was an excellent episode to revisit and is a new favourite but I also love the Loverboy and Camp Nowhere episodes.

The Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life episode is excellent because not only is it pretty much Reefer Madness for pornography and the WHM guys bring their A game. I can't recall any other episode where one of the hosts most definitely has been readying jokes over the years.

The Mark Walhberg impression is my favourite mostly because I like to do it myself (the voice at least). What makes the WHM impressions so strong is the creativity they bring to the character. Even very scarce impressions like the Butterfly Effect writers are memorable because they are characterized so well. They make a return in Freddy vs Jason, which relistening to it recently, is one of my favourite WHM episodes.

That brings up something interesting about my listening to WHM and absorbing second-hand fandom. I don't care about all those slasher horror films like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, but I can appreciate those movies through the WHM, so as I can borrow their love for the Jason movies through their Friday the 13th rankings episode, I can borrow their disappointment in movies like Freddy vs Jason.

I've seen this recommended in a couple of places so I decided to listened to a few episodes. I honestly kind of hate the hosts now. They seem to devout no attention span or intellectual patience to anything they watch, but also somehow manage to be condescending and dismissive for anything they don't already know. Just unpleasant, negative jackasses.

I wasn't onboard with them the first time I listened either. :)

Real film analysis gives way to jokes and comedy. They're not going to double check facts on the internet before making jokes, they're going to make them and if they get something wrong about say the specific genre of Diablo II, it's fine. You gotta be on board with these guys tearing up some movies, even movies you might think are good.
