Movie Meltdown - Episode 219
We're back! And who needs to watch the Oscars when you can watch a touching Oscar-caliber film... like "Hooper". The "Oscar Meltdown" insanity rages on as we discuss this week's movie, as well as have flashbacks from the Oscar coverage earlier in the evening. Plus we continue with the "Meltdown Awards" as we discuss votes that you, the listeners, contributed to our annual presentation of "The Foilers".
And as we ask: what movie is so bad it makes you cancel the Netflix account? We also meander into the topics of... he was from Latvia, a pioneer of action comedy, furrows in his brow, Myra Breckinridge, Airwolf, Robert Klein, painting yourself into a corner with your script, The Duke and the Dauphin, my right hand... stabbing my left hand, Gore Vidal, Skyfall, peanut allergies, Sally Field, Ricky Jay, an earthquake machine, The Fall Guy, making you work for the nudity, Life of Pi, Superman in a Batman costume, the Lifetime achievement award... for hotness, my Grad school teacher, rooting for him to get his ass kicked, a young Ricky Schroder, he is the master... of the awkward and the painful, you're gonna die!, Bob Dylan, doing impressions, Brian Keith vs. David Keith vs. Keith David??, Bee Gees, losing your momentum, hunting and canoeing, So I swing out over this frozen dry-bed creek..., Treasure Buddies, don't tell Chuck about it..., being bitchy and making sense, Mila Kunis, I'm gonna use that clichéd plot... one last time... before I retire... and it's so crazy... it just might work, the love child of Brian Den and Charles Durning, they pick and age and they stick with it, Seth Rogen, seeming wholesome, the women you watched grown up..., Chronicle, Jim Sturgess and the childhood curse of the quadriplegics.
Spoiler Alert: I'm not sure you can spoil the movie "Hooper"... but if it's possible, I guess we do.
"I always like to watch it, because it restores my lack of faith in humanity."
