Goddamn, I always love when they do these "lighthearted" romantic comedies with vile premises. Bonus points for the side discussion about anchovies on pizza. (Even Futurama once sunk this low.)

Maybe to just fill time since there's no breasts and only one actual "sex" scene.

Boob movies are for dinner; movies about barely legal male prostitutes are for when the kids are getting ready for school.

Ah, okay, I was wrong, I do have one from January. I guess it's just that they don't do many On-screen episodes?

I bought the app because On-Screens, side order of sleeze, and Animation Damnation were only in there. Now it seems like they basically never do the first two shows, and Animation gets posted on the main feed. I don't mind having thrown them a few bucks, I get free funny every week. I just wonder why they changed the model like that.

That app is complete trash (not the WHM guys' fault) and doesn't even let me log into it anymore. And I'm pretty sure it has some bonus episodes that aren't even on the Bandcamp page.

I listened to the Ghostbusters 2 episode during a long drive today and I think it might be the best episode they've ever done. A very thorough and honest analysis on why the whole film just doesn't work despite the amount of talent involved, plus I nearly drove off the road from laughter when they started analysing whether the slime was capable of consent.

BUT IT'S THE GHOSTBUSTERS!

Holy poo poo, Animation Damnation is doing Pokemon.

And it's an episode I clearly remember, how :psyduck:

It's kind of mystifying how these guys know nothing about Pokemon; they're a bit younger than me and basically in the perfect demographic for that show in 1998. Did they even know it was a video game?

They would have been like 15-16 years old

They've said their ages on the show before, and I think everyone was born around 84-85, which would make them 13 and 14 in 1998. I'm only stating this because I watched Pokemon when I was 16 and am only slightly ashamed.

The Vosgian Beast posted:

The level of lack of knowledge kind of makes it great. They have a serious discussion as to whether Team Rocket are vampires.

Don't get me wrong, I loved that aspect of the episode. They just seemed more like retirees trying to describe one of those danged vidya games instead of the 30-somethings who've had MULTIPLE conversations about the Star Fox universe.

It's a fine line, but they were born in like 1983-1984, and are 31-32, like me. And, for some totally anecdotal evidence, I always saw Pokemon as something my little brother was into, and not me, and he's 4 years younger than me.

So it's a fine line, but they'd likely be just on the "Didn't watch it" side of the line, like me.

I just thought it was odd that it seemed like an absolutely foreign concept to them. Even if you were too old for it, Pokemon was basically unavoidable for two years. You're absolutely right about it being a fine line, though.

I'm really starting to feel that with WHM we can't do anything right. People complain when we did Camp Nowhere since it was "too small" of a movie, then when we do big movies like T3 or DragonHeart people complain that they "like" those movies. I genuinely like a lot of movies we've covered. I nearly shut down the mere notion of doing an episode on The Running Man for instance but then I realized: it's OK to like a movie, let's have fun discussing it. It's just a fun conversation. I don't think we ever intend anything we say on the show to be the "definitive" opinion and often when I lurk somewhere, I feel bad about the way the show is perceived but that's on us, I know. I just want to post and say, hey, dudes, I feel you and I'm not trying to crap on things just to crap on them. I want to goof around about them.

Yeah, I think people have the same misconception about MST3K—that they're out to strictly make fun of movies. You guys are like them in that you play up certain aspects of a movie for the sake of humor, and then mine some of the stranger aspects to have entertaining conversations. WHM has been kicking rear end lately, so I wouldn't worry too much about a vocal minority upset that you're poking fun of multi-millionaires.

A few months ago, one of the guys asked on Reddit about recording studios in Manhattan because he was no longer going to be living in NYC proper. It was posted using the whmpodcast username that I believe Andrew and Eric both have used. So I think they're doing their best to accommodate any changes coming down the pipeline and (hopefully) no one's going to be leaving.

It would be real neat if Eric dropped by again to talk more about this.

I think that means no more tall glasses of water before recording.

Possibly a dumb question: is there any way to get the app running on an iPhone? I bought the Android app when it first came out but now it refuses to load on my tablet, and the FAQ about the app on their site is pretty out of date--the "Podcast Box" app on iOS changed its name and doesn't have WHM on it anymore.

I also deleted the app so I could reinstall it, but for some reason there's no longer a download link on the Amazon page, nor can I grab it by looking at past orders. I'm completely stumped.

When they said they were doing the Sigfried and Roy cartoon I thought they meant the infamous Dreamworks bomb Father of the Pride before finding out that, incredibly, they were in multiple cartoons.

The one the WHM gang is talking about probably doesn't have any jokes about lionesses masturbating with their tails so it's the better show by default.

I remember that show was in development for so long it had the unfortunate timing of coming out one year AFTER Siegfried and Roy's live show ended when Roy was attacked by one of the tigers.

I'm hoping they do When Nature Calls, since they've riffed on it in the past, I think. The racism in the sequel combined with the first one's transphobia makes Ace Ventura a series that's aged loving terribly.

The worst thing about The Flophouse is that the actual movie talk is like 20 minutes. I get it, it's jokes, but at that point just do a comedy podcast or something, you're completely ignoring the movie.

The mail bag has its moments, but it's mostly used as a way for unfunny listeners to get the guys to run though tired, running bits. I kinda miss when they weren't playing up their "characters" so much.

From what I remember, Lady in the Water is a M. Night Shyamalan movie, co-starring M. Night Shyamalan, about why M. Night Shyamalan is great. And the villain is called a "narf" or something because M. Night Shyamalan clearly wasn't watching Pinky and the Brain in the '90s.

These Matthew Broderick impressions are making me wish they'd do one on The Stepford Wives remake because holy poo poo. The wildly inconsistent tone, gay panic jokes, the obvious and hasty rewrites/reshoot of the ending, the entire thing is just one giant shitheap.

There's a great How Did this Get Made? about the 2006 movie Deck the Halls that posits Broderick has essentially been dead inside since accidentally killing two people in Ireland in the late '80s. At the very least it explains his choice of roles.

I've pretty much unsubscribed to every bad movie podcast but WHM at this point—and they're one of my favorites in general. I still check out The Flophouse occasionally, and while I like their personalities, at this point it seems like talking about the movie itself is a weary obligation they speed through so listeners can prompt them to do the same bits for the following 40 minutes. (And Dan generally seems too "sleepy" to watch movies or wrangle Elliott anymore.) And I kinda stopped listening to HDTGM around the June-ification of the show, though it's not her fault at all. It honestly felt a little patronizing every time some off-the-cuff remark or genuine attempt to be funny was met by "WHAT!? WHAT!?" followed by minutes of analysis. The "What is a Street Fighter" thing was definitely a funny moment, but man have they been sweatily trying to recreate it ever since.

Also, I'm someone who podcasts for a non-living, it kinda irks me when the more famous ones can get away with some pretty low-quality tech. There's one out there I really love and don't want to shame by name, but every time they play a sound or song by literally holding an iPhone up to the mic, I ask myself "Does anyone know the computer they're literally recording this through can do the same thing a million times better?"

precision posted:

I mean I don't really care about ads, I honestly don't, but if I were getting anywhere near $7K/month on my Patreon, I wouldn't do ads. Or I would do an ad-free version that you can listen to on the Patreon page specifically.

$7K/month split four (five?) ways is actually not too far from what we're getting now if you break it up into "per person", and we don't do ads currently. But it's their choice and it's not too intrusive.

But you still shouldn't make your Patreon listeners hear them.

Making a separate, ad-free podcast is actually a lot of extra work for guys who still have day jobs. I give to their Patreon and don't mind the ads because fast-forward buttons exist.
