Sunday Cinema – “Message from Space”

 

Space

 

When “Star Wars” hit theaters in 1977 (and again in 1978), the popularity was off the charts at the time. Many studios around the world scrambled to get a piece of the action by creating their own “space operas” that oftentimes blatantly stole from the “Star Wars” franchise. All this month we will look at some of them, keeping in mind that they are meant to rip off “Star Wars” and do so poorly…

“Message from Space” came out in 1978, and is a strange but wonderful rip off. Since George Lucas admitted that Japanese films like “Seven Samurai” influenced the story of “Star Wars”, isn’t it fitting that Japan releases its own rip off? Similar storyline, a peaceful planet is blown to smithereens by an evil empire & it takes a ragtag group who wield a magic-like power to defeat it. And there’s a character named “Han”…

Someone posted it online, enjoy if you can…

Fidget

Fidget spinners are all the rage these days. Some cost a pretty penny, some you can make for cheap. There are also fidget cubes...

I guess “full-disclosure” in real estate terms comes down to “don’t ask”

Who knew snorting drugs could lead to HIV, Hep-C, & other infections?

I wonder if there is a “Rule 34” website dedicated to this fetish

You know that camgirl/sharkbite video? Yeah, it was fake...

“Barely Legal” strippers are still allowed on Bourbon Street…

The power of social media grants a teen fame & a year of chicken nuggets

First, don’t leave your key in the car. Second, what the hell is wrong with these thieves? Third, it’s the towing company and not the police to blame for the $300 bill…

Have a fugly spouse and are required to attend social functions? Why not hire a replacement spouse?

Tiny house living for the homeless is starting to work in Olympia, WA. Is it me, or is the one homeless woman giving the homeless man a handjob in the video?

Creepy. Very creepy. I don’t want to think what else he did during his “grieving”…

Sunday Cinema – “Starcrash”

When “Star Wars” hit theaters in 1977 (and again in 1978), the popularity was off the charts at the time. Many studios around the world scrambled to get a piece of the action by creating their own “space operas” that oftentimes blatantly stole from the “Star Wars” franchise. All this month we will look at some of them, keeping in mind that they are meant to rip off “Star Wars” and do so poorly…

“Starcrash” came out in 1978, and actually has some fairly well-known stars. Marjoe Gortner was best known as a child evangelist and the center of his own documentary, “Marjoe”. David Hasselhoff (yes, THAT David Hasselhoff!) stars alongside Caroline Munro (who’s best known for portraying Victoria Phibes in the “Dr. Phibes” series of horror films starring Vincent Price), and Christopher Plummer as “The Emperor”.

From the long single shots of a poorly-constructed “imperial cruiser” to the now famous “Star Wars paragraph crawl”, the ripoffs are plentiful. It even got a sequel in 1981, shortly after “Empire Strikes Back”.

Someone posted both the original & the sequel online.

Hacky Hack

Hacky Hack

 

The boys check out the Tulip City Comic Con (or Comics & Toy Fare, depending on where you look). MattyV picked up some “The Nam”, “Dazzler”, “What If”, & a Scott Rosema original.

Tour of Duty” was a short-lived military drama that took place during the Vietnam Was (or Conflict or Police Action, however you term it) and focused on a unit filled with FNGs, short-timers, & grizzled grunts.

The hack of Netflix, Fox, & others via Slashfilm. As we continue in the digital age, I imagine this type of theft will continue…

In the movie, “Knocked Up”, Seth Rogen’s character and his cohorts are trying to develop a website that turns out to be exactly like Mr Skin (NSFW)

The local tulip festival where the boys live is going on and it even has its own Urban Dictionary entry!

Alien:Covenant” is on its way to theaters soon, hopefully overshadowing the poorly-received “Alien:Prometheus” film. Reebok is getting back into the game with a pair of “Alien”-inspired shoes later on this Summer (and yes, they will have women’s sizes this time…).

“Logan” is being re-released in theaters as a black & white “film noir”, but is only coming to select theaters. Most of the country is screwed…

Wonderland” is based on the true story of pornstar John Holmes and his part in a pretty gruesome execution/robbery. Someone posted footage of the crime scene, NSFW…

Someone posted a sh*tty copy of “Hot Girls Wanted” (NSFW), if you have Netflix – watch it there. “Rated X” is the movie with Charlie Sheen & Emilio Estevez…

Sunday Cinema – ” Os Trapalhões na Guerra dos Planetas”

 

Tramps

 

When “Star Wars” hit theaters in 1977 (and again in 1978), the popularity was off the charts at the time. Many studios around the world scrambled to get a piece of the action by creating their own “space operas” that oftentimes blatantly stole from the “Star Wars” franchise. All this month we will look at some of them, keeping in mind that they are meant to rip off “Star Wars” and do so poorly…

“Os Trapalhões na Guerra dos Planetas” (“Tramps in Outer Space”) aka “The Brazillian Star Wars” came out in 1979, and is a strange but wonderful rip off. A group of misfit thugs are whisked away on a space ship and are asked to help defeat an evil villain (who looks alot like Darth Vader). It’s in Brazillian but there are subtitles from time to time. It’s mostly an action flick, which doesn’t get lost in translation.

Someone posted it online, enjoy if you can…

Schmoopy

Schmoopy

The first part of the pod might hit you right in the feels as the boys open up about some sh*t going on in their lives. Hopefully the conversation will help a few listeners…

“You’re Schmoopy”, “No, you’re Schmoopy!”

With the “Really?” part of the conversation reminded Matty of the old SNL bit

Could you tell the difference between top shelf & low-brow spirits? Would you believe the hype about designer water as well?

“Do Your Job!” is all that Dan the Man & MattyV could think of when they saw the barista meltdown over the unicorn frappucino…

Coming to this year’s Grand Rapids Comic Con are Gates McFadden & THE Kane Hodder! Sweet!

Dan the Man isn’t a horror fan, certainly not willing to go to places where murders occurred. Reminded Matty of the Romany Malco scene from “The 40 Year Old Virgin“…

Jeffrey Combs is the actor Matty was thinking of from “The Frighteners”…

The Indiana Comic Con was pretty neat, Matty recommends Cecil Grimes Cosplay if you’re a fan of “The Walking Dead” and he comes to a convention near you. Very personable, very appreciative. Excellent experience!

The Paul & Michael feud lasted for years, all because of investing advice Paul gave Michael. Billy Squier owns the rights to all of his music…

Scar-gate” is the latest saga in the Star Wars universe… Also, is Snoke the twin brother of Darth Vader?

Let us know, is Kylo Ren a punk bitch?

TROOPS” came out way before YouTube and is still an amazing video…
