It was all the rage back in 2003.

I was involved in the "stairs question" back in 2006ish. We had a goon meet, and I was the first one there, the next goon to show up looked at me and said "stairs?" I was like, "yeah."

I really liked Mystery Men, their episode was still funny. I don't agree with their analysis, but I didn't feel the need to pick up my tweets about how I don't agree with their take on it.

I haven't listened to that one yet, so I'm downloading it now. I also liked Mystery Men

I was totally convinced that I had seen a movie where Jim Belushi drove a motorcycle into a school and then killed a bunch of hooligans.

I know for a fact I have seen this movie 13 years ago when I was living in a hotel.

If any of you haven't listened to ep. 216 (Cyber Seduction) recently, I really recommend it. It's another Lifetime movie. Enough said.

This was the second episode I listened to back in December (after The Devils Advocate). I found it hard to drive at times.

Also, back in the olden days of GBS, we had a big old group watch when this movie premiered, and there's a "City Name Sports Team" shirt in there

I remember watching a Ron White standup special once, and the crowd got super uncomfortable when he started talking about how much he loves smoking weed and he had a reasonably inoffensive bit about hot transsexuals. He was definitely not happy to be stuck with those yahoos.

hey kewl!

I think Ron White was the only one of that group that I could stand back then. Of course "they call me 'tater salad" got pretty old because everyone in Kansas would repeat it over and over and over again (usually followed by "get 'er done less than 5 minutes later)

I just watched it a month or two ago, it's not nearly as bad as its reputation. I mean, it's not directed very well and has some other issues, but as a TOS episode, it'd be perfect average.

It was also the first Star Trek movie I saw in theaters, so it's special to me

Maybe not even that good, I found the old graphic from that era and it was never announced more in-depth than "Female Lead Spider-man Spin-off".

You know, out of the movie where we cut Mary-Jane entirely and murdered the only woman under 50.

I'll be honest. WHen it comes to the glut of Super Hero films, only the Disney/Marvel ones have any interest for me. Their the only ones that have been consistently good.

Also, I keep hearing how the idea of the "Cinematic Universe" Is dead because it's peak has come and gone. The only movie universe that ever worked were the Avenger Movies. Every other attempt at it has been a huge failure because no one else is willing to put in the work Marvel Studios has done in building it up.

I don't think it's dead, it's just that Marvel was the only one that lucked into pulling it off.

Marvel started with characters most people knew the name of, but little else. The origin stories are fairly fresh to people who aren't comic book people, most people know how Batman, and Superman came about, and we really don't need them rehashed every 15 years. They also had a semi-self awareness that allowed them to have fun without being a comedy.

On top of that, all of them that I've seen have been fairly self contained. You can drop in and out of them without missing much more than some minor offhanded references. They're essentially perfect for how I always see them, killing time on a Saturday.

I saw that movie. I had thought it was some kind of fever dream from the distant past, but then my memory was jogged when the Sparklemotion scene was mentioned. I will never forget the velcroed dong being removed from the mannequin

The episode on the Moon landing hoax is really, really good. I wish the rest of them had that same structure.

It's strange. Eric is my favourite on WHM but his "own" show is kinda meh to me.

I like it because it's like a couple of stoners talking about x-files poo poo. But yeah campfire episodes are the best

It's not like, say, the modern Wicker Man, where the only reason I'm ever going to watch it (or, really, even remember that it exists) is because Nicolas Cage is in it being Nicolas Cage.

Yeah, the only real reason I remember it was because it was the movie playing in the theater that you could get booze delivered to your seat, and my friends were in town (it was a newish concept at the time ok!). By the end one of my friends was making a ton of jokes about how they had actually sacrificed Nic Cage at the end.

Speaking of which, have they watched the modern WIcker Man yet?

I had no idea that Niel Hamburger was a thing outside of Entertainment. It's on Netflix if you want to have a... Time

For the record, Entertainment is a movie that I like, but it's definitely an experience, and I recommend going in blind if you haven't seen it.

I dunno about that since it's kind of apples and oranges, but it's really dumb and bad even by the standards of super stupid post-Matrix garbage action movies. I think almost all the blu-rays out there were handed out in free mail-in the promotions you got for buying early blu-ray players.

That reminds me when we bought our DVD player, $300, we got a free copy of Lost in Space, The Stepmother, and I suspect there was something else we never watched like Titanic

It's a Sixth Sense/Stir of Echoes thing. Released around the same time, similar plots, etc.

Similarly Aeon Flux wasn't great.

The game came out a year before hand and was based on an early script of the movie where, as I recall, the genders were switched and there were other major story changes.

Then the movie comes out and they put out a second game under almost the exact same name that it based on the finished movie.

I can't think of that ever happening before.

I'm just shocked that there was a game based on it, and now I find out there were two
