Movie Meltdown - Episode 327
This week we hangout with comedian and movie fan Ian Douglas Terry, as we talk about working as a stand-up comic today versus years ago, translating comedy to film, inappropriate kids movies and then we round things out as we discuss this week's Sofa Theater feature: Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
And as we contemplate teaching chimps to fly planes, we also mention... Mad Max: Fury Road, acting wrestlers, Captain Ron, escaping from your hometown, The Dark Crystal, Jason Segel, Malcolm X and 311, hawkmen, How I Met your Mother, Russell Brand, Fast and Furious, I'm just all about references, Return of the Jedi, cell phones killing people, Judd Apatow, Xanadu, that always never works, The Muppets, Paul Rudd, dragging your microphone cord out into the audience, George Miller, Cash for Cats, Slap Shot, terrifying vulture people, Kristen Bell, Ready to Rumble, the punk bank approach, Dracula, Mila Kunis, The Rock, Denver, Neil Patrick Harris, that's the way I wish every woman would look at me, drumming to Rush, Babe, No Holds Barred, alligators and juggalos, I feel like most of my 20's I would view relationships as like - that person was crazy. I did nothing wrong. Like I was the hero. I tried my hardest, they obviously messed up, paint-by-numbers romantic comedy, Linda Cardellini, DIY, Flash Gordon, Nicholas Stoller, improv vs. Scientology, Labyrinth, hypnotism, LaserDiscs and the career arc to becoming a weird boat captain.
