The Past Will Bite You in the A*s

The Past Will Bite You in the A*s

 

What’s meant as a “parody” or “satire” is lost on a generation. Outrage over “Millenial Night” at a minor league baseball game including “participation ribbons” just for showing up, “avocado toast”, “napping stations”, and awards for the perfect “man bun” were some of the highlights. It’s a joke, people…

There’s more to the story of why Disney removed James Gunn from the third installment of “The Guardians of the Galaxy”. Granted the social media posts in question are from before he joined the Disney family, but the context and where these stemmed from are still disturbing. The entire cast is demanding that Gunn be reinstated despite the posts, however…

Sacha Baron Cohen’s comedy has always been on the fringe, with very little appealing to wide audiences. Using his comedy to push his own political agendas, his new show has forced a politician to resign (the Georgia rep believed he was participating in anti-terrorism training) and made others look like fools by duping them. It was a gun shop owner that saw through his disguise and ruined one of his “performances”.

Lots of new trailers were released at the recent San Diego Comic-Con, here are a few of our favorites:

“Mayans MC” – a Spin-off of the beloved biker show, “Sons of Anarchy”, covering the lives of the rival motorcycle gang seen in the show.

“Glass” – the third installment of M. Night Shymalan’s trilogy that includes “Unbreakable” & “Split”. Interesting to note that James McAvoy didn’t know “Split” was a sequel to “Unbreakable” until filming was almost complete.

Titans” is another “DC After Dark” type “mature” series that apparently is trying to achieve on network television what Netflix is achieving on their streaming service with their Marvel properties.

A recent pick up, “Howard Stern’s Crucified by the FCC” is a time capsule of Howard’s best years on terrestrial radio. All of the bits now are pretty much tame compared to what you might find today on the airwaves… And remember what was said in the movie “Private Parts” about fans vs. haters

Sunday Cinema – “West of Hot Dog”

 

hot

For the month of July (after a month hiatus), Sunday Cinema is focusing on films with either “heat” or “hot” in their title. From obscure movies to a television show parody, the choices span decades…

In this early gem from Laurel & Hardy, Stan Laurel is robbed on his way to the reading of his late uncle’s will in the small town of Hot Dog. Trouble is, one of the robbers is at the will reading as well and isn’t happy that Stan gets everything including the Last Chance Saloon. Bad Mike and his posse will do just about anything to get their share…

Someone posted this oldie but goodie online for all to share!

Starfishing

Starfishing

 

3 of Chris Hardwick’s ex-girlfriends are defending him against allegations from another ex-girlfriend about physical/mental/sexual abuse.

Because of her allegations, Chris’ name has been removed from Nerdist Industries (a company he created) and has been removed as host of “Talking Dead”.

Starfishing” is when a person is too tired for sex and lays spread-eagle to allow their partner to engage without participating.

People, yes living & breathing people, are donating to Kylie Jenner in order for her to become the youngest “self-made” billionaire. Why not donate to a worthy cause that can do some good with your money?

Stormy Daniels was arrested and charges later dropped when she appeared at a strip club in Ohio. We smell something fishy and it ain’t her clam… And will be divorced soon!

Hot Stuff

Dom Deluise was a staple of 1970’s & early 1980’s comedies. Often portrayed as the “sidekick”, in his directorial debut (!) he takes the lead as an undercover sting officer with a pitiful arrest record. Together with Suzanne Pleschette & Jerry Reed, they take over a pawn shop in the hopes of getting that “big score”. Interestingly enough, Dom cast his real-life wife and oldest son as his character’s wife/son…

Antman & MAGA Boy

If you haven’t seen “Super Troopers 2“, what the hell is the matter with you? And while you’re at it, check out Jay Chandrasekhar’s book as well…

Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers

If you haven’t seen “Antman & the Wasp”, stop listening around the 22-minute mark…

Nerdist has had several videos about the movie and how the characters will fit into the MCU after “Avengers:Infinity War”:

How Antman & Wasp fit into the MCU Infinity War

Is the movie a relief from the aftermath of Infinity War (yes and no, sadly)…

How the mid-credits scene sets up the next Avengers movie

How “easter eggs” in the movie set up the future of the MCU

Will the quantum realm be the key to bringing people back?

And lastly, should Wasp be the new leader of the Avengers? (she did name them in the comics)

 

Okay, spoilers out of the way. Enjoy the rest of the content!

Some douche took a “Make America Great Again” hat off a teen in Texas, threw soda at him, & made some derogatory comments. Karma’s a bitch as the guy was fired from his job and arrested for assault. See it’s not just republicans…

A waiter was fired for refusing to serve a man wearing a MAGA hat in a Canadian restaurant. Karma came back around as the waiter was fired for disobeying the restaurant’s “philosophy of tolerance” (which he claimed he was following by refusing to serve the gentleman)…

Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, responded to threats that whomever “better shoot straight” and proceeds to call herself an animal(!) in the same sentence

International Law does dictate the “right of asylum” for refugees fleeing persecution and that they are to seek asylum in the first “safe” country they enter. Mexico is not telling people that they have to seek asylum there first before the USA…

So, it’s not okay for a Trump-supporting celebrity to call a government official an ape but it’s perfectly fine for a Trump-hating celebrity to call for the president’s 12-year-old son to be put in a cage with a bunch of pedophiles? Got it…

And America/American media were okay with Obama’s handling of illegal immigration, but Trump is the villain? According to this article, Obama wanted to do some of what Trump’s administration is doing as far as efforts to stem illegal immigration. And conveniently there are no numbers or statistics of how many families Obama’s administration separated

Caged Heat

Before his turn directing award-winning films such as “Philadelphia” and “The Silence of the Lambs”, Jonathan Demme got his feet wet with exploitation films. In this flick, a woman is sent to prison due to a drug bust. What she finds are a sadistic warden & prison doctor, bent on exploiting their “caged kittens”. It’s only a matter of time before the “kittens” start fighting back…

Heat Vision & Jack

For the month of July (after a month hiatus), Sunday Cinema is focusing on films with either “heat” or “hot” in their title. From obscure movies to a television show parody, the choices span decades…

Back in 1999 (before YouTube, Vimeo, et al), Ben Stiller created a joke/parody television show pilot about a man and his motorcycle. Well, the smartest man in the universe and a sentient motorcycle containing the soul/essence of his unemployed roommate. On the run from NASA & Ron Silver(!), this parody takes on many beloved sci-fi television shows and was certainly ahead of its time. Side note – the premise was taken from a failed television pilot called “Northstar” (starring Greg Evigan of “BJ & the Bear” and “My Two Dads” fame).

5 Must-Watch Summer Movies

The boys couldn’t get together last week, so we decided to present a summer movie guide to fill in the gap. These movies are available on YouTube, so no need for a streaming service subscription. Cheesy, full of T&A, these aren’t your kids’ summer movies for sure!

Summer Job

1) Summer Job

A classic that MattyV recalled seeing for the first time on “USA’s Up All Night with Rhonda Shear”. Although the television version was heavily-edited because of the gratuitous T&A, it was still a “mast-raiser”. Interesting note – the band at the end of the movie was comprised of former members of the group Electric Light Orchestra.

 

Hamburger

2) Hamburger: The Motion Picture

Coming out around the time “Hot Dog – The Movie!” came out, this one doesn’t have stars like David Niven (from the Dr. Pepper commercials) nor Shannon Tweed (at the time was Playmate of the Year). It does have Chuck McCann, Dick Butkus, & Charles Tyner and plenty of sexual innuendo.

 

 

Gleaming.jpg

3) Gleaming the Cube

A made-up skate trick name, this movie was cashing in on the skateboard wave that struck the USA in the late 1980’s. Starring a young Christian Slater, he’s a rebel skateboarder out to find who killed his adopted Vietnamese brother. Check out a young Tony Hawk and the rest of the original Bones Brigade in the climactic chase scene!

 

Joy.jpg

4) Joysticks

What do you get when you mix arcade games, sex, & Joe Don Baker? This movie, of course! Another movie cashing in on an American fad, see if you can spot Jon Gries (“Uncle Rico”) in one of his first movie roles!

 

 

Last

5) Last Resort

Although this takes place during the winter, the movie ushers Charles Grodin and his family to an island “paradise” with lots of humor & sexual innuendo. Look for a young Megan Mulally (“Will & Grace”) as well as SNL alums Jon Lovitz & the late Phil Hartman.

Sunday Cinema – “Hot Rod Gang”

Gang

 

For the month of July (after a month hiatus), Sunday Cinema is focusing on films with either “heat” or “hot” in their title. From obscure movies to a television show parody, the choices span decades…

In the 1958 flick, “Hot Rod Gang”, a young kid wants to enter his hot rod in the local car races. To get the money to make it happen, he joins a rock & roll band. One of the standouts would be Dub Taylor, which most of us Gen-Xers will recognize as the “Hubba Bubba Bubblegum Guy” from the 1980’s.
