Movie Meltdown - Episode 336
This week we welcome most of the cast from the Tower of Technobabble as we discuss a specific movie that one of the guys felt baited and switched him. Then we expand to other questionable bait and switch movies and eventually we have to address which ones also fall into being just generally offensive movies. Plus we mention a few upcoming movies, as we decide just which ones we're excited about and which ones we're still leery about.
And as we all realize we're secretly trying to plug the holes in our geek knowledge, we also bring up... Blazing Saddles, gushin' fangirls, Deadpool, a space floppy disk, Knight Rider, the internet is made for releasing, New York was a cesspool of terrorizing lawlessness, Song of the South, get in my space van... here's some candy, going to the drive-in, The Black Hole, that one angry unicorn out there, This isn't a long haul... this is flash in the pan stuff, flashing lights and shag carpeting and Space Allman Brothers posters, like Spider-Man who kills people, did they think they were being progressive?, movies that scarred you as a child, Planet Africa, pouring the foundation for the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, too caught up in the naked action, Star Trek, coupled with watching Sesame Street, hipster-cred going through the roof, this image of Los Angeles that is gone forever, three copies in The Library of Congress, I mean, it's well-shot... it's in focus and everything, it looks like an old A and P that got remodeled, no green alien game, Captain America: Civil War, I was bored silly, he was just disaffected by everything, imagine G.I. Joe only if they had crazy magic crap, just awkward silence and pensive stares, the Hasbro Universe, why was everything beige in the 70's, retroactive censorship and - for God's sake swipe left!
