The Happening also has an awesome premise that shows up in a horror novel that Stephen King mentions in Danse Macabre, at least one j-horror movie, and part of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Pity it's wasted on what's apparently a bad movie!

Which J-horror? And eco-horror was its own subgenre of Italian gory films in the latish seventies to mid eighties. One I remember in particular I think was just called The Swamp or something really generic like that, it had the trees and animals of, well, the swamp kill off the extended family of a rich businessman who was polluting the bayou.

It's a tough call. They're clearly supposed to be documentaries for a particular brand of bigoted fuckwit, but they're also clearly entirely fiction.

There's a sort of subgenre of documentaries were most if not all of the runtime is an actual film with actors portraying "real events" there called docu-dramas. There's a real fine line between them and pure fiction.

Reds was a pioneer of it, about two thirds was a standard film about American Communist John Reed, which was occasionally broken up with brief interviews with people who knew him and were still alive.

The Star Trek episode was good, but it was baffling to hear the whole gang taking shots at DS9. Especially as they have strong knowledge about Next Generation and the original series, it was weird they seemed to attack DS9 based on the space station premise without seeming to have watched the show.

I wonder if the hosts were huge into Next Generation but didn't watch any of the following series, as they don't seem to mention Voyager or Enterprise. I mean it's fine to not like a show, but for Trek fans it's odd that it seems like they never watched one of the strongest series.

I did like when they were discussing a worse version of Mos Eisley and Eric slipped in "Mos Epsa." That was a deep cut.

Yeah that surprised me too, especially since they've turned Michael Dorn #WeWantWorf into a running joke. On the other hand a quarter of the Insurrection review is just impressions about Quark being a massive sex offender.

well why not posted:

Honestly I think he's had a great career considering it's spun from mostly TV spots and a recurring role on early TNG. Things ended up a bit differently, O'Brien would've been mentioned in the same breath as Chief Engineer Argyle or Assistant Chief Engineer Shimoba.

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.

I listen to podcasts to be entertained, and to check on the progress of the audio recording software. Is chemistry and good diction important? Of course, but we listen to three to five strangers talk for hours at time about bits of long dead pop culture to have fun. Instead of reading things like "I gorged myself on crisps while listening to this comedic laugh riot at work", I read things like the "oh the movie is overplayed" or "It was better with Chris Cabin on the show" etc, etc. #weWantWorf

If it wouldn't of been better then why didn't they ask you to pick the movie and the trio? :smugbert:

Its time to let podcasts simply be what they are, ENTERTAINMENT. I had FUN listening to it, and you will too, or keep your Harry's razor blade money and shut up!

I really liked it too. It was one of the first episodes I heard while still on the fence. I haven't seen the film but I did read Stephen King's cycle of the Werewolf and I remember thinking this film sounds a hell of a lot like it in the introduction.

I really like Halloween III

The villain is great and a class act, their plan is sinister and the goals beyond that are really beside the point because holy gently caress they're gonna kill millions of kids on Halloween night.
The robot/automaton people was a bit of a stretch but whatever, they're augmenting science with loving magic.

And I also wished it had a detective or at least a policeman protagonist. And could have done without the whole unlce drunky "You ever have one of these?" stuff.

Aye it's my favourite of the whole series. I really dug the Irish Celtic nationalist being motivated to commit mass infanticide because he's pissed off at the commercialisation of his heritage. I've actually met people who would agree with Cochrane.

Same here; I had a hard time following things because they just referred to everyone as "the brother" and "the sister" and I had no idea who was who.

TNT's currently doing a Halloween movie marathon (Season of the Witch right now) so we'll see if the movie itself is easier to follow.

Not really, both cuts are really rough. I really liked the Loomis shock jock bit. I don't even know who Howard Stern is and shock jocking isn't really a thing on British radio but it was one of the funniest things I've listened too in awhile.

Yeah, I got like half an hour into it and just gave up.

I'll be honest, I have no real experience with this franchise apart from III; were they trying to make Michael Myers a dark spirit or something with his spirit infecting the kid from the end of 4?

Yeah in one version of the film that seems to be what they were going for, but they don't really commit and in another version its kinda just dropped. It doesn't really matter the curse itself makes no sense either. The funny thing is both version contradict their version of the curse in different ways.

So I've never seen TCM:TNG. Are the Illuminati actually name-dropped in the movie?

Well... yes they do,though there a bit coy at first talking about a government conspiracy that dates back thousands of years before they mention the I word. Also in at least one cut of the film they also claim to be aliens who are working for the illuminati (I'm serious) I think that was what Eric was talking about with that commenter who mentioned purple blood. Oh and they also claim that Leatherface killed JFK, and there's some other really wacky stuff they talk about. There's also a bunch of scenes where the canibillies just start jumping about making noises and slapping themselves.

I think everyone whose seen the original should watch the Next Generation because words fail to convey just how much of a confused mess of a film it is.

When they run out of horror franchises for the Spooktacular, they could do an On-Screen about The Munsters Today.

(There's what, Nightmare on Elm Street, Texas Chainsaw Massacre... and that's it, isn't it?)

Don't worry, there's a shockingly high number of horror films that spawned bloated franchises with both insane and pitiful sequels. Off the top of my head there's Hellraiser which I'm sure they've mentioned on a few episodes, The Howling (Crossover with werewolves and things?), Romero's of the dead films, that one with the killer puppets (the puppet master?) there were like six of them they even had a Freddy versus Jason style crossover. Oh and Tremors those last are particularly horrifying. :rimshot:

Nice, looks like someone got in on the ground floor.

For me the first episode I listened too was I come In Peace, I had never heard of it but an late 80's/early 9's action sci fi flick staring Dolph Lundgren and a drug dealing ET, struck me as a film that deserved to e more well known. I then picked some of the more obscure films randomly (the descriptions on the episode list helped) and was hooked.

My favourite part of Equilibrium is the very beginning when we get the obligatory exposition speech that all Dystopian films had to have. Its a speech played over the usual stock footage, you know the clips of war damage and fire fighters etc. But right as he says the "21st century" a clip of Stalin appears. Right there it tells you all you need to know about the priorities of the film.

Oh and I really the love the bit where Bale's nemesis is getting visibly angry in the middle of the street while denying that he has feelings, and on the contrary it is Bale who is having the feels.

and as far as the plot is concerned, he's absolutely correct

"Dystopian ruling body is actually corrupt and hypocritical" isn't a new concept, so I don't think that part is weird.

Yeah, that isn't what's happening in that scene, its the opposite in fact. The guy is correct that Chirstian Bale has been rebelling but Bale has framed him so, he defends himself, but even though his character is supposed to be still on that magic drug that suppresses emotions, he denies the accusations by visible and obvious frustration. Its part of Equilibriums overall sloppiness, when its not doing a cool action scene or a melodramatic flashback its really not interested and is just biding its time till it gets to another shootout scene.

I've been giving some of my old favourites a listen to. I really like the Planet of the Apes review, not only is it a good review, but its a bit of a watershed moment for me. Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes was the first film I saw in theatres that I really didn't like. Luckily I had already seen a couple of the older Apes films (Conquest is best) or I probably would've ignored the new ones. I actually had to drag my friends to go see Rise with me, because they had only seen the Tim Burton one.

Anyway at the beginning Andrew talks about a Twilight Zone actor, he doesn't say his name but he does say the actor killed his family. I found the guy, TV's Robert Sorrells. Fortunately he did not kill his family. He did however walk into a bar and shoot two strangers. Here's what the IMDB Tribune has to say.


quote:

A bizarre recluse who suffered from a drinking problem in later years, he walked into a Simi Valley bar on July 24, 2004, and shot two customers -- one fatally. He was caught three blocks away by police and arrested for murder.

A devotee of yogi exercise and a vegetarian, he professed to believe in non-violence until his sudden murder spree.

The exemption from a statutory rape charge isn't the really creepy bit (bare with me) its that the guy goes around carrying a little booklet about the loophole in the statutory rape law on him at all times and just whips out as justification, when Marky starts getting understandably sickened by the whole thing.

How is it presented? Like, did he, a guy who is dating a minor but in a legal way, figure that, since he knows people are going to say it's illegal, start carrying around the statue so he can prove it on the spot and not have someone call the cops? Or does he have, like, a laminated card that he's clearly had for a while, probably as justification for more than one girl, and whips it out with a, "Nah, it's all good brah."


Well IIRC, Marky walks in on them being lovey, finds out the dude is his daughters boyfriend, starts freaking out about a potential rapist. You know doing the angry fast talking, bit. Meanwhile the guy starts talking about Romeo and Juliet, Marky gets confused so he whips this like card from his coat pocket that details what the exemption is and why it applies to him and Marky's daughter. So yeah he's been carrying that thing on him for awhile.

Cameron overheard the talk in the Paramount commissary, Rick Berman made the movie premiere mandatory, and that was just the beginning. After a few weeks of "Ensign Kellogg, set a course for... a view of your vagina" Berman knew he better give her a Trek career for life.

I suspect Braga had something to do with the decision:

quote:

"It was the best performance I've ever seen. I just thought she did a wonderful job. Picard catches Beverly masturbating for crying out loud! What a tough role to play. When I was writing the words, 'She writhes around in the bed having invisible sex,' I just thought, 'Oh man, we're asking for trouble. Are they gonna be able to pull this off?' Thanks to [director] Jonathan Frakes and Gates, it was not hokey. It was very good. Look, I scripted the first orgasm in "The Game". This was mild by comparison. Sure it was racy. Even Rick Berman had said, 'I can't believe we're doing this.' I think they trimmed quite a bit out of the writhing sequences."
