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

Caged

 

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…

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.

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.

Dumbing Down

 

Dumbing Down

According to a study by a professor in Amsterdam, Westerners have lost an average of 14 IQ points since the Victorian era. Some experts say we’ve reached our intellectual peak…

People who swore they’d leave the country if Trump got elected? This article catches up with some who followed through….

The average internet user has participated in some form of “pirating”, whether its music, movies, or video games. But before the internet and even before VCRs, there was an underground market for pirated 16mm studio films

We all wondered about it. We’ve seen ads on YouTube or the internet for it. But how does “doomsday prepper” food actually taste?

A gentleman ended up in the emergency room with an embarrassing issue, his “urethra pleasure toy” got stuck in his bladder… “Urethra Play” is apparently a fetish…

Tourism can be a good thing, but we often don’t think about the stress on environments or on the locals

The writer of the HBO film adaptation of “Fahrenheit 451” talks about how the story is more relevant today than when it was first written…

Check out this story of when Bert Kreischer went to the Anne Frank house thinking it was Helen Keller’s…

Action Park!

Action Park!

 

With J in tow, the boys head to the theater to see “Action Point” which is an adult comedy loosely-based on what was A REAL AMUSEMENT PARK IN NEW JERSEY!

The YouTube Channel, “Defunctland”, posted a documentary on the history & fate of Action Park.

This documentary is interesting as it contains interviews with people that actually went to the park (such as Chris Gethard from “The Chris Gethard Show”). You’ll learn why it has been called “Accident Park” or “Traction Park”…

Someone posted ACTUAL FOOTAGE FROM 1987 of the park in service…

Here’s a television commercial from 1983 for Action Park…

Alice in Chains went to Action Park as a part of “Headbanger’s Ball“…

The original park closed in 1996 and was re-opened in 1998 as Mountain Creek Water Park. In 2010, the name was changed back to Action Park by the family of the original owner but when the park changed hands again, the Mountain Creek Water Park moniker was used and is still used to this day. Unfortunately, much of the thrill is gone since safety measures have been implemented eliminating the adrenaline rush of possible injury/death…

X-Force! (well, DP2)…

X-Force! (well, DP2)…

 

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

If the first line of the post doesn’t warn you, we are going to spoil the crap out of “Deadpool 2”.

 

J & Matty saw the movie without Dan the Man and both walked out with different feelings. Both definitely give it 2 thumbs up and will probably see it again before it leaves theaters. The driving force of the story line had both gents a bit on the “meh” side as compared to the original. Dan the Man concurs and we weren’t the only ones

Matty & Dan the Man remember X-Force fondly (both have sealed copies of all 5 first issue covers), but the line up had changed many time over the years. The movie picks out some of the more memorable (and less memorable) characters from the series…

There were a few cameos of note for fans with Brad Pitt being the one most people missed (he was Vanisher). Nerdist failed at their guesses…

The main baddie, returning to the X-Men universe, was spoiled a couple of weeks ago

Here’s some Easter eggs you might have missed in DP2

And lastly, it’s not the size that matters – it’s what you talk about with it…

Sunday Cinema – “Married to the Kellys”

 

Kelly

 

Back in 2003, a “fish out of water” sitcom premiered on ABC in the hopes of becoming the next “Dharma & Greg” or at least a  small screen adaptation of the movie, “Meet the Parents”. Tom is a born & bred New Yorker who fell in love and married Susan. Being a freelance writer, Tom decides to move to Kansas so that his new bride can be closer to her family. What he doesn’t realize is how foreign Mid-westerners can seem.

There are a few stars, Breckin Meyer (“Road Trip”, “Franklin & Bash”), Josh Braaten (“Semi-Pro”), Richard Riehle (“Grounded for Life”, “Office Space”), and a young Derek Waters before he hit it big with his comedy series “Drunk History”.

It lasted a full season, but America was apparently tired of the Mid-westerners making fun of New Yorkers & vice-versa. Someone posted a bunch of episodes online, this one having to do with barbeques

Sunday Cinema – “Ferris Bueller”

Ferris

 

Rounding out this month of TV shows “out of time” is this one from 1990. Traditional television networks were desperate to compete against the then-fledgling Fox network who began dominating the ratings with such shows as “Beverly Hills 90210”, “The Simpsons”, & “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose”. One of the answers was to transfer movie properties to the small screen, with “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” being a logical candidate. The slacker-vibe and quick wit of Ferris combined with foil of a rabid principal, it could have been the making of a great sitcom. Unfortunately, moving the the location of the show from Chicago to sunny California was I believe one of the downfalls of the show. People in the Midwest were looking to connect with the Chicago-based Ferris because it was familiar. The show lasted 1/2 a season before being canceled.

One of the bright spots of the series was a young Jennifer Aniston before she became a huge hit on NBC’s “Friends” and even before her debut in the movie “Leprechaun”. Someone posted episodes online, with this one being the pilot
