Sunday Cinema – “Lancelot Link”

 

Lance

 

Since this is “Ape”ril, we thought it would be fun to share some of the lesser-known movies featuring primates… Enjoy!

Yes, the 1970’s were an interesting time indeed. Not only were there blatant rip-off monkey movies running rampant on the silver screen, there was also a television show about a secret agent whom also happened to be a chimp. By day, Lancelot Link is a member of the rock group “Evolution Revolution” and by night he is a secret agent for APE (Agency to Prevent Evil). Yes, this was a real show that lasted a whole 17 episodes.

Lancelot and his cohorts are called to rescue a scientist & APE agent who was searching to find CHUMP’s (Criminal Headquarters for the Underworld’s Master Plan) horde of stolen gold. CHUMP has photos of all of APE’s agents, can Lancelot & Mata Hairi save the day?

Someone posted this episode online, don’t do drugs…

Bad Pizza’s Still Good

Bad Pizza’s Still Good

 

MattyV mentioned a College Humor video about a girlfriend (played by “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Ellie Kemper) and her ideas about giving a BJ.

MattyV is a Chicago-style pizza fan (but will eat anything put in front of him), Dan the Man is more of a cracker-thin crust kind of guy. What type of pizza are you into? Let us know on our social media pages!

MattyV is in need of a new series to start watching. Dan the Man suggests “Game of Thrones“, are there any series out there that you enjoy? Let us know!

Sad note, Don Rickles had passed away at the age of 90. Dan the Man watched many YouTube clips of “Mr. Warmth”. MattyV watched the “Dirty Work” clip…

Dan the Man likes some of the changes to baseball rules

The only place MattyV MIGHT wait more than 30min for a table is a local Mexican restaurant. Dan the Man MIGHT wait at a Kalamazoo joint for breakfast.

Jim Varney will be missed…

“The Walking Dead”‘s season finale was kind of a letdown compared to other seasons…

The Michigan State Police have been cracking down on drivers who fail to abide by the “Keep Right Except to Pass” signage on the highways.

Dan the Man still recommends Marvel Unlimited despite the “holes” in certain comic series…

Dan the Man would, but MattyV wouldn’t stay in bed for 2 months (since he did that a few years ago)…

“Squirrel Girl” isn’t getting the big screen treatment, but rather an ensemble cartoon – “The New Warriors“…

Sug Knight says that he was the target the night Tupac “died”. Chappelle’s Show had a funny skit about Tupac’s music.

Dan the Man waxes poetic a little about cryptozoology

People are pissed that manatees (or sea cows) have been taken off the endangered species list. Some other dumbasses killed a rhino for its horn – while in a zoo!

Yes, the “grandma catches monkey poo” happened not more than 45min from where MattyV & Dan the Man live.

Dan the Man’s love for George Carlin runs deep. Here is a clip of Richard Pryor before he really took off.

Sunday Cinema – “Queen Kong”

 

Queen

Since this is “Ape”ril, we thought it would be fun to share some of the lesser-known movies featuring primates… Enjoy!

 

A female film crew travels to the jungles where a giant female ape falls in love with the male star. We can’t make this up. Yet another film hurriedly put out to grab onto the “King Kong” revival wave, some reviews call it a crime against cinema. Apparently Paramount Pictures attempted to sue the production company in order to block distribution (and won), it survives today…

 

Someone went wild and posted this gem online for all to see how farcical it is…

Have a Healthy Day

Have a Healthy Day

 

MattyV went to McDonald’s to grab lunch and noticed the register keypad operated like the one in “Idiocracy“, only with food & beverage photos. As Dan mentions, the company is moving towards the self-ordering kiosk to basically eliminate cashiers. What better way to beta-test the system a kiosk will run on than to use their own employees…

What was once supposed to be a parody, is now becoming a documentary and a prediction of the future

If you have a still-operating old movie house near you, give them some love. MattyV visited The Regent Theater and had a blast. Date night cost less than $25 for tickets/pop/popcorn/candy. And they show first-run movies…

It would be nice to have more live streaming events at movie theaters, concerts that are either sold out or too far away. Fathom Events does some events like this, if they could do more concerts it would be incredible.

The infamous Tyson v Mcneely fight that lasted less than 2 minutes, at a cost of $49.99 for pay-per-view…

Joe Mixon is basically black-listed from the NFL draft due to one faulted mistake. Much like Ray Rice, who never played in the NFL again. Yet Michael Vick & Greg Hardy get a second chance.

Life in Pieces” is a hilarious comedy on CBS with Colin Hanks, Dianne Wiest, & James Brolin. Dan the Man recommends “The Good Guys“, another series with Colin Hanks.

A mystery was solved recently in the world of “Pulp Fiction”. Someone posited that Butch was the vandal that scratched Vincent Vega’s car in the movie once he exited the bar.

 

“Adam Ruins Everything” was originally a continuing bit on CollegeHumor.com that eventually got a “cleaned up” revamp on TruTV.

Sunday Cinema – “A*P*E”

ape

Since this is “Ape”ril, we thought it would be fun to share some of the lesser-known movies featuring primates… Enjoy!

 

“A*P*E” was essentially a hastily-made South Korean film meant to ride on the coattails of Dino De Laurentiis’ remake of “King Kong”. The tagline surely clues you in – “Not to be confused with King Kong”. This practice is still done today with smaller studios cranking out lesser films similar in plot to mainstream theater fodder, but for the “instant streaming” & bargain-bin DVD markets instead of competing head-on in the theaters.

The main primate of the film is being transported from Harlem (?) to Disneyland by boat and escapes. The man in the obvious monkey suit marvels at hang gliders, fighting an obviously already-dead shark, & even flipping the bird. It was released in 3D, one of the best effects involve a snake being thrown directly at the camera. Look for the director in a minor role as “Dino” – an obvious dig at “King Kong”‘s director.

 

Someone was kind enough to post this massive farce online for all to marvel at…

The Experiment

The Experiment

This week the boys headed to GR to see “The Belko Experiment“, which is apparently on a limited-release engagement. Over all it was a good movie, we recommend waiting until the DVD/instant streaming release.

ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION

MattyV & Dan the Man start out the podcast with what could be construed as offensive to many. We want to reiterate that we do no condone nor think that date rape (or any other kind of rape) is funny by any stretch. We were simply commenting on the absurdity of the statements, “9 out of 10” or “4 out of 5”, when it comes to someone trying to qualify their own conclusions regarding whatever topic may follow and using the offensive topic as proof of such absurdity.

ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION – ATTENTION

“The Belko Experiment” has been touted as “Office Space” meets “Battle Royale“, which is a Japanese horror film that has been the inspiration of “The Hunger Games“. We agreed that the setting (a corporate office) could be likened to “Office Space”, but there were no real jokes that even come close to it. “Battle Royale” is a bit closer, employees are pitted against one another to survive.

If you like movies such as “Battle Royale”, “The Purge“, or “The Strangers“, you may like this movie.

The article is a little old, but here are some things that you should & shouldn’t purchase on your next trip to Costco

At least they got his order right… Dumbass….

Why is it that people like this are made famous (or infamous) while the ones who should get the accolade end up on the back page or some ticker fodder on the news?

When your five-year-old draws a picture of his mother with tufts of hair coming out of her pants, it may be time to consider a little “landscaping”

Sunday Cinema – “Mad”

mad

 

The month of March is known for several things, from St. Patrick’s Day to March Madness. For Sunday Cinema, we decided to honor an old joke (“What’s the military’s favorite day? March 4th…”) and the madness aspect of the NCAA basketball tournaments. So the films will either have a war theme or have “mad” in their title!

 

A cop & a game warden who hate each other are forced to come together to exact revenge on the producer of a reality television show. Although the film takes place in South Africa, it’s still got a lot of slapstick comedy elements that aren’t lost on the audience.

Someone posted a decent copy of this film online

A Little Landscaping

A Little Landscaping

 

Out of all the ’80s sirens, MattyV picked Molly Ringwald over all the others. Strawberry blondes make him melt… Dan the Man chose Elizabeth Shue, the beach scene in “The Karate Kid” does it for him…

When a five-year-old draws a picture of his mother with tufts of hair coming out of her pants, it may be time to consider a little “landscaping” . Reminded MattyV of the scene in the first “Scary Movie“…

“The Matrix” is contemplating a reboot with a black actor (Michael B. Jordan from “Creed” is being considered) playing Neo. There are several fan theories about the movies and “The Matrix” itself…

Trucks“apparently follows the short story by Stephen King a little more closely than “Maximum Overdrive“, which is odd since Stephen directed “Maximum”…

This is the Guns n’ Roses video that Dan the Man was referencing…

This I guess this still is an acceptable senior gift, a shot glass (seriously)…

“The marathon.” “The what?” “The marathon.” “What?”

Weird Al’s moderately-priced “rarities” album has previously unreleased tracks, including “Pac Man”…

$10,000 is apparently now the highest-price paid for a hamburger (for charity).

Sunday Cinema – “Jungle Rats”

jungle

 

The month of March is known for several things, from St. Patrick’s Day to March Madness. For Sunday Cinema, we decided to honor an old joke (“What’s the military’s favorite day? March 4th…”) and the madness aspect of the NCAA basketball tournaments. So the films will either have a war theme or have “mad” in their title!

Back in the day it seemed when a genre becomes popular on the big screen, studios try to quickly shoot & distribute “knock-offs” for the home video market. The same thing is done today, but distributed through movie streaming services. “Jungle Rats” came in at a time when Vietnam War-themed movies were big hits at the box office. Part “Missing in Action”, part “Rambo”, the military puts together a crack team of tunnel soldiers to rescue American captives from the Viet Cong. Filled with a bunch of b-movie actors, the best part of the film was actually the poster or box cover. Filled with images that looked an awful lot like “Rambo: First Blood part II”, companies had to sell the movie by box art.

Someone was kind enough to post this gem online.

 

The Holy Grail

The Holy Grail

The boys had quite a conversation today about “holy grails” when it comes to collectibles.

Highest price paid for a comic book? $3.2 million…

Highest price paid for a VHS Tape? $700, despite some dubious eBay auctions

Highest price paid for a Video Game Cartridge? $99,000, for an NES Championship Game cartridge.

Highest price paid for a automobile? $16.4 million for a Ferrari…

Highest price paid for a record album? $2 million, and the record can never be reproduced.

Highest price paid for a bottle of wine? $265,000. Wow, that’s a lot of juice!

Highest price paid for a bottle of whisky? $928,000, those crazy Japanese!

Highest price paid for a movie prop? $4.1 million, and no, it’s not Sharon Stone’s bra

Highest price paid for a teddy bear? $2.1 million, and it’s a Steiff

Highest price paid for a Beanie Baby? $4500, although we’re sure someone is out there ashamed to admit how much they paid for one…
