Who Pays Who?

Who Pays Who?

 

This week the boys took some time to talk about some personal stuff as well as give opinions on different trends & random stuff.

Some recommendations for YouTubers to check out via the boys:

  • LGR – Lazy Game Reviews – reviews of old/odd tech, unboxings, old CD-Rom games, thrift store visits.
  • Rob Scallon – does covers of metal songs using non-metal instruments like banjos & ukuleles.
  • Hydraulic Press Channel – this is the original from Finland, MattyV loves their accents!
  • Puddles Pity Party – a mute 7-foot clown that sings his heart out, mash-ups of songs, Puddles ended up on America’s Got Talent this season & blew the judges away.

Next week, the boys will see “Wonder Woman” and will give their opinions (however much their worth)…

Dan the Man is against re-telling the origin stories of our beloved comic heroes with every new incarnation. We know the origin, get to the story! “The Punisher” in Dan’s eyes would be a “throwback” to the comic’s timeline of the 1970’s.

Oftentimes remakes of foreign films are better than the original. We present “Let Me In” with Chloe Grace Moretz versus the Swedish film, “Let The Right One In” as well as “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” from the US versus the version from Sweden as proof.

MattyV is on a quest for finding those obscure movies from his childhood/teen years on DVD. So far he has acquired “Meatballs II” & “Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex (but were afraid to ask)“. Barebones DVDs, with only a trailer along with the movie (well, both discs has both the standard & widescreen versions). The “Meatballs” franchise has had some floundering sequels, the only film not available on DVD is “Meatballs III: Summer Job” which starred a VERY young Patrick Dempsey in his Hollywood debut.

T&A Movies were all the rage before the internet opened up the world of free pornography. “Hardbodies“, “Fraternity Vacation“, “HUNK“, & “Summer Job” were there to give teen boys access to tits & ass that were more 3-dimensional than the 2-dimensional pics from their dad’s Playboy or Penthouse mags…

Gwendy’s Button Box” is a collab between Stephen King & Richard Chizmar, something he is beginning to do – give unfinished stories to up-and-coming authors to complete. This we believe is the first novel from those collaboration. Dan the Man recommends “Hellraiser:Bloodline” as one to see…

Sunday Cinema – “Dark Ride”

 

DarkRide

 

This month’s “Sunday Cinema” theme is Amusement Parks! Summer is always equated with throngs of hot & sweaty families waiting in long lines for rides while stuffing their gobs with turkey legs & overpriced hot dogs.

A boardwalk amusement park in New Jersey. One creepy-ass horror ride. One deranged killer that lives in said-creepy-ass horror ride. 6 dumb shits passing through town & come across the abandoned ride. Gee, I wonder what happens next? The film was shown at a couple of horror conventions back in 2006 until it was finally released to DVD in 2007. A couple of notable stars, Jamie-Lyn Sigler (towards of the end of her stint on “The Sporanos”) & Patrick Renna (Most remembered as “The Great Hambino” from “The Sandlot” & Carla Gugino’s little brother in “The Son-In-Law”). I can see why it went straight-to-DVD…

Regardless, someone bravely posted it on YouTube

Sunday Cinema – “Rollercoaster”

 

Roller

 

This month’s “Sunday Cinema” theme is Amusement Parks! Summer is always equated with throngs of hot & sweaty families waiting in long lines for rides while stuffing their gobs with turkey legs & overpriced hot dogs.

“Rollercoaster” could swear you off amusement parks for life, if you lived back in 1977. One of a handful of movies shown in “Sensurround” (basically 4 large bass speakers were placed around the theater to intensify the “rumble” of the rollercoasters), it had some well-known actors (and some up-and-coming actors as well). Timothy Bottoms (best known as GW Bush on “That’s My Bush!“) stars as a serial bomber targeting amusement parks across the country by blowing the tracks & causing accidents on their popular rollercoasters. George Segal (the granddad on “The Goldbergs“) plays a ride safety inspector forced to play the deadly game of “Where will the bomber strike next?”. Henry Fonda, Helen Hunt, & an uncredited Steve Guttenberg also end up in the cast of characters.
Even after being toned-down to receive an “R” rating, some of the imagery is disturbing. Someone posted a copy that looks like it was filmed in a movie theater

Sunday Cinema – “Star Odyssey”

 

Odyssey

 

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…

“Star Odyssey” came out in 1979, and is another poor rip off from Italy. Known in other parts of the world as “Metallica” (no relation to the band), an evil space villain uses his android army to attack Earth. No known actors of note, some of the scenes with the C3PO-like android are ones to watch.

Someone posted it online, enjoy if you can…

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

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”

 

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…
