I'm always a week or two behind so I'm still on President Chili Cheese Pup. The talk about no big alien reveal and sex with Q*bert made me think of a better movie that did both right, Galaxy Quest. Tony Shalhoub's character was banging a tentacle creature and it was awesome.

Bucky Larson would be even more infamous if Jack and Jill didn't catch so much hate. That was a real banner year for Happy Madison.

I'm pretty sure the haunted swimming pool on Unsolved Mysteries they were talking about is actually aboard the Queen Mary. If you can't accept the 100% authenticity of that haunting I don't what to tell you.

This appears to be the last five minutes
Patton Oswalt on Gallagher

I think Gallagher has had multiple rants regarding comics using water bottles and stools. I think the idea is that water bottles are a prop for comedians that can't smoothly transition from one bit to another and that it's rude to disengage from the audience while they sip water and think of their next joke. But instead of sounding like a an interesting guy with thirty years of experience to share he's just an angry old man. :(

Who's the guy who pronounces mutant as mu-TAHNT and villain as vil-LANE? It bothers me.

It's going to bother me a lot more now that someone else has mentioned it out. I want to say the vil-LANE thing is directed toward over the top characters that are super evil solely because they're the villain of the movie, but mispronouncing a word on purpose is still annoying.

Also yes, Mrs. Doubtfire and Blame It On Rio are indeed top shelf WHM.

Blame It On Rio is indeed on the top shelf, tucked away behind some books. We only take it down after the kids have gone to bed because this is We Hate movies: After Dark. It's a fantastic episode but I agree with them that it shouldn't be anyone's first episode. I think any recommendation list need to include a Lifetime movie; they're great episodes and they also introduce this big, hidden genre of film.

Edit: He just called Suicide Squad vil-LANEs in the Speed 2 episode. Whatever, I still love the show.

The last time they mentioned Hell on Wheels I was curious, because I was still really enjoying the first season. I finished season 2 this week and I'm done. Three more seasons? You can keep it.

Kind of like Paul Giamatti, I feel real sorry for Colm Meaney. His characters are easy to make fun of but it seems like he's had a good career.

And speaking of How Did this Get Made?, their show spawned an ongoing series of articles on Slash Film looking into the behind the scenes history of the movies HDTGM does. They get some impressive interviews, including a fantastic phone interview with Mel Brooks (executive producer of Solarbabies).

Their live shows still have a lot of annoying crap going on.

Don't you worry about Frank Welker

> Secondly, I was interested in knowing whether you are in the upcoming Simpsons Movie?

A few years back Dan "C" did Santa's Little Helper in a rehearsal and unfortunately for me ... did it a little too good. The producers thought ... "Hmmm, Dan barks pretty good, and we are already paying him and he seems to like doing the dog thing ... why do we need to pay Welker who comes in here, spends less than an hour, eats all the doughnuts, refuses to come to rehearsals ... let's just give the drat dog to Dan!" Bingo ... I'm out. I did do lots of shows that needed sound effects and weird sounds, but Santa is without this little helper.

Oh, and no ... nothing in the movie.

> I noticed a Santa's Little Helper themed episode [this season] and you weren't credited at the end.

I wanted a raise ... most of what they asked me to do was wild and wacky, but it also almost always hurt my throat. So, I asked for a raise ... that is why you haven't seen me. They are really great people over there, but they have a rule about "top of the show" for guest performers and I fell under that consideration.

But of course he has a good attitude about it on his own site. I bet that even by 1995 there were some issues with the main cast's salaries and Welker was a problem. If you pay him more for being so accomplished then another cast member wants a pay bump because he's just the dog. Dan's getting paid enough already, he can do some dog sounds.

What I find infuriating about HDTGM is when it's clear they barely watched the movie. Jason has said he just finished watching it on his phone in the cab to the studio, June has claimed the movie made her nauseous so she watched it ten minutes at a time, and a couple guests have admitted to just not watching the whole movie. Then they come to something that's merely poorly explained in the movie and they go off on it likes it's a massive plot hole. God help us if it's a live show, then Paul's going to run into the audience with a microphone so Paul W. Reddit can argue with them about what really happened.

I think HDTGM introduced me to the idea of bad movie podcasts and lead me to WHM. It's hard for me to give up on it. I need to listen to their No Holds Barred show again, with Thomas Lennon going full Hulkster, and remember the good times.

Do you mean Mantzoukas? TBH I felt like a lot of the "dumb June" bits were Mantzoukas making a huge deal out of every admittedly ineloquent (though not that crazy once I got what she was saying) or benign/inane observation June made.

Yeah, June is only part of the problem. She needs cohosts that know how to draw out her ideas and when to just get the show back on track. I think one of the moments that spawned the dumb June gimmick was toward the end of Street Fighter when she asks "What exactly is a Street Fighter?". Jason howls with laughter and repeats the question while their guest tries to explain it with other movies and video games. But she's the only one not taking the title for granted. She's confused because that title for that movie make no drat sense. She had an insight into what a broken adaptation it was but they treat it like a joke.

So We Hate Movies, there's a podcast that doesn't piss me off. I thought Dracula 2000 was a great choice for a rerun, particularly because of their annoyance at the movie going meta by including the book as fiction in their world. It pairs nicely with This Ain't Yo Momma's Dracula, Dracula Untold.

When does the show come back? I can never remember, then when I finally check back, I've missed a dozen new episodes (not a bad feeling). Is it Oct for the Spooktacular?

My picks for request month:

Laserblast

(not strictly a list of bad movies, just ones I'd like to hear the guys discuss)

There are several MST3K movies that I would love to hear them do and Laserblast might be the best choice. MST3K's format doesn't exactly lend itself to discussing things at length or bringing in outside information. Laserblast came out the year after Star Wars and Close Encounters and clearly wanted to ride that craze. They didn't have a good enough story or budget to do that but they were still audacious enough to blow up a Star Wars billboard on screen. I would really like to hear them tear into it. I like even more to hear their disgust at how gross the human form was in the 70's.

I just stumbled over some trivia that I haven't seen covered. The Screen Rant article 15 Shocking Things You Didnít Know About The Terrible Supergirl Movie doesn't say much that's shocking or even new other than that Demi Moore almost played Lucy Lane. You know what also came out it 1984? Wikipedia cuts to the chase:

The Wiki Courier posted:

Demi Moore auditioned for and was cast as character Lucy Lane, but bowed out to make the film Blame It on Rio.
:stare:
Was the fourth film in the Superman franchise so clearly doomed that a young actress bailed to do a sex comedy? Was Blame It on Rio ultimately the better career choice? It was just another terrible movie but Supergirl was a notable flop.

Also,

The IMDB Tribune posted:

A film container, simply stating the words 'do not use' was discovered at Pinewood Studios in London. The negative inside the container was the full 138 minute Director's cut of the movie. Anchor Bay subsequently released this version on special edition DVD, limited to 50,000 copies.

The guys mention how much they would rather have watched the shortest version. Looks like the 138 minute cut came about because of convenience as much as demand.

Joseph Bologna (Rio) and Peter O'Toole (Supergirl) were both in My Favorite Year.

Stanley Donen (Rio) also directed Bedazzeled starring Peter Cook. Cook played Nigel in Supergirl.

The evidence is just forming but I'm pretty sure Blame it on Rio is the center of the cinematic universe.

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.

Someone with access to the Goodle Drive folder: Is the entire catalog neatly named and numbered? I'm not at all mad about what's going on but I was motivated to organize the episodes I already have and download the rest of what's available.

My method with the old archive was to save the MP3 as the episode number. Then tell MP3Tag to format the track number as the episode number while leaving the title untouched. Then just renamed to %artist% - %track% - %title%. It honestly takes more time to read that than to do it.

I get that correctly naming MP3s isn't a big deal, especially if you had a plan as you saved them. I'm convincing myself that it's not even worth that little effort when a month at $5 will get me consistent file names, support the podcast, and with ads removed I'll never have to hear them shill for DraftKings ever again.

I recently noticed that several of Gallagher's old specials are available on Amazon Prime. I thought it would be interesting to watch a bit and ruminate over how they've aged and how that format of comedy has evolved but drat, they are bad.

There are probably worse Fast and the Furious movies and worse films of 2017.

That we're asking where Martin Cinemax III has been points to a good thing about the show. It's a popular character but they're not going to force it in. They're just as likely to do something new or let each other run with what's working in the moment.

I still listen to HDTGM and the latest episode was ok. The movie was Ladybugs, the guest was Patton Oswalt, and June sounded sane and had actually watched the movie. But those first two should produce more than a creaky-hand recommend.
