They started using the Hurrah A Bolt Of Light theme (which one hundred percent rocks) when they started putting their stuff on iTunes, probably just to nip any potential problems in the bud

The Pallbearer, which features my fave WHM character.

:smithcloud:


Aside from the aforementioned, some of my favorites are:

Pray for Death: ninja goes on blood vendetta; also might be a Batman
Tuff Turf: "I'm not having a hard time making fun of this movie, 'cause it's a bad, stupid movie, but this is a GREAT fuckin' movie!"
Blame it on Rio: I have never in my life heard a group of people more uncomfortable with describing the plot of a film
Addicted to Love: the second most uncomfortable I've ever heard a group of people describing the plot of a film
Buried Alive: for, uh, no particular reason or anything :shobon:

If you're just scrolling around their episodes list and don't know what to pick, good starting points are always holiday movies, family movies or anything that's made-for-tv. They're at their best when ranting about a movie that doesn't know how hosed up it is.

Edit: Evil Mastermind beat me to my first two in the time it took me to hunt down those links and listen to a bunch of clips (:mad:) so here's a couple more:

The Core: unobtanium, cry-hacking, nine thousand degrees
Easy Rider: The Ride Back: a different kind of you shtole mah story

I'm A big Woo nerd and, yeah, his US efforts are all below the standards set by his Hong Kong releases. If anyone here has never seen any, I can't recommend enough that you track down The Killer, Hard Boiled and A Better Tomorrow. Bullet in the Head is also classic, but set aside a solid block of time to get real sad - it's depressing for a Woo film, which is like being extra salty by the standards of rock salt.

I got super excited when they said they were doing a Belushi film, then instantly disappointed when they said it wasn't Retroactive. That movie is a-list WHM material.

True about Better Tomorrow 2, but I couldn't remember if it was 2 or 3 when Woo left the series and didn't want to look a fool - some big fan I am :v:

Retroactive does feature Shannon Whirry, but more importantly, it features one James Belushi playing the same exact character he always plays, with the catch being that he's finally, appropriately, treated like a villain.

I saw Stealth in theaters, and that thing became a beautiful hate-watch in a hurry. Imagine if the same disregard for facts and reality from The Core was applied to aeronautics, ballistics, artificial intelligence, the Korean DMZ and music piracy of all goddamn things. I've been meaning to rewatch it lately, maybe this'll be my motivating excuse.

Okay so I normally hate double posting but right now I hate everything so it balances out


I wrote down every time I laughed while watching Master of Disguise from beginning until the last goddamn frame:


18 minutes: Abraham Lincoln is shown bombing during a speech so a Disguisey in a Lincoln costume swaps places with him and turns the party out; it goes on just long enough for me to reconsider if it was ever funny before it had a chance to end.

36 minutes: Jennifer Esposito gives Dana Carvey a clue while telling him some background information. When he looks at the clue, he hears what she just said in a voice-over, then goes "Do you remember that thing you once said about blah blah blah..." I actually forgot what the joke here was because I just wrote down the timestamp so that shows how desperate I was to laugh.

60 minutes: Jennifer Esposito goes in for a kiss while Dana Carvey is rambling about god knows what. He rambles straight through her kiss, then kisses the air where she used to be. It's a little Actually Cute and might have worked as a throwaway joke in a Woody Allen movie.


The 70 minute runtime with 10 minutes of credits makes it sound like this would be a lean movie, but the weird cuts and total lack of continuity hints at some five hour epic that was filmed where this was the only remotely presentable material. I wonder if all the original footage still exists, or if the ground beneath it gave way as Hell could not bear to be without its purest creation.


Edit: and to the point of the thesis, no, ain't a glass tall enough, ain't a water icy cold enough

Easy Rider 2 is an insult to Easy Rider, while Master of Disguise is an insult to humor, art, film and human expression as a whole

Awful nothing is underselling it just a touch, I mean the costumes and sets and fun, plus it gave us this:

I've already got mine lined up, because I was going to suggest it last year before it occurred to me how perfect Buried Alive was for the show. But, basically, I've got to hear them tear into Christmas Do-Over. It's in that subgenre of "let's get rid of mom's new boyfriend" family movies that they hold so dear, except mom's new boyfriend is an actual earthbound saint and Jay Mohr is the reprehensible protagonist. It's pure, refined discomfort.

Well that's just goddamn irresponsible, airing that thing on cable. That's like airing a two hour Silver Shamrock commercial. Kids all over the country were melting into insects and snakes while Jamie Kennedy drank baby piss.

Son of the Mask sounds like it'd make a great triple feature with The Master of Disguise and the sweet release of death.

Buried Alive - it was always one of those movies where I'd catch it on cable while channel surfing, get totally transfixed by its insanity, then not shut up about it for a week and a half. Highly recommended movie, if you can find a copy.

I love when they do a movie I've never seen before and I'm genuinely shocked at something in it. Pretty sure my jaw hit the floor when they revealed that Brainscan actually does the "it was all a dream!" ending.

I saw Brainscan a couple of months ago, and actually started an argument with my TV when the ending happened. It's so much worse since it keeps going for another ten minutes with THREE separate "or was it!?!"s - the photos in the girl's room, the Trickster in the principal's office, the dog finding the foot. Not like the movie played by it's own rules, anyways.
