The Shut Up Kids

  • Yay! Will listen as soon as I get this obligatory christmas shit dealt with

  • It has a monkey on a horse, firing two machine guns.

    DVD cover blurb by John Ary

  • “Cold in July” will be downloaded today. It’s legal on Christmas, isn’t it?

  • John Wick, eh

  • Are you Canadian today?

  • Willard’s place is bad for me.

  • I am curious about John Wick, I wonder if those overstylized action movies have not run their course.

  • Is there a dog in the background?

  • You’re starting to hear Zod’s dog everywhere. You might need to talk to a professional.

  • Schnitzel Bonk?

  • Boyz n the Hood is from 1991, Ary! Get your facts straight.

  • Ha, two.

  • Don’t steal our shtick.

  • My annoying ass dog has been edited out of shows sine day 1!

  • Now you are critisizing my editing.

  • Well, not even Walter Murch could have edited my dog out of this one.

  • Just added Cold in July to my list to watch.

  • Noahahahaha

  • Your hatred for Aronofsky and Slate’s disrespect for PT Anderson may drive me to drink. Well, drink more.

  • Noah is a religious movie by the way. It’s about Aronofsky’s god complex.

  • Sometimes you cannot say if a movie is good or not in advance.

  • Not until I read Dee’s movie trailer analysis.

  • Ha! I looked it as a fantasy film set in a different dimension or some shit. Very enjoyable that way.

  • It’s my contribution to make the world a better place.

  • Upcoming debate. Then you can hear my whole take.

  • Anything I can do to help your liver failure.

  • Stalkeye

    Pt.2 isn’t available on iTunes as of yet, so I may have to comment Friday.
    (Yes, I am scheduled to come into work that day. )0: )

  • I worked the last three Christmases, I know what you mean.

  • Watch it, or you and I may be Finnished professionally.

  • Nick is right on with the bell bottoms.

  • The religion of bush.

  • Really? I got it on iTunes already. Well, sucks you are working but Merry Christmas dude!

  • Not the crappy 90s band, though.

  • It’s never about the crappy 90s band.

  • Ayuh. You get all sorta expressions from there, sheesh

  • I know about your love for Dishwalla.

  • Who have you been talking to?!

  • Slate was in a sect?

  • Anyone keep track of John’s f bombs? I’m so proud!

  • I have a scoreboard up in my kitchen to keep track of Ary’s f bombs. It’s sat empty for years. Thank you!

  • What’s a home run?

  • It’s like a touchdown only worth one score.

  • What’s a battle?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Ja das ist eine schnitzel bank.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Dead family Christmas song.

  • Stalkeye

    Thanks, D!
    Merry Christmas to you, the misses and of course Annabelle.

  • Bop

    Then feed him something. 😛

  • Bop

    I am curious about the movie.

  • Stalkeye

    You worked during Christmas??
    What kinda Bob Cratchet Shit is that?? I hope you’re getting overtime at least. Friday is gonna be smooth since half the company will be off and I get to fuck with you guys until quitting time.

    You’ve been warned! (oh, and I’ll grab your Christmas BoPX Podcast too (0:< )

    Come what may, Merry Christmas!
    -Alfred Pennyworth

    Batman Returns

  • Stalkeye

    To that Soul Hole Bro, Saint Nick Nightly;

  • Stalkeye

    To The Self proclaimed Whitest White man, Dan the Muthafukin Man!

  • Stalkeye

    LOL that’s too White.
    This is much better!!!

  • Stalkeye

    To me, the Half Whitest Black Man

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    This is white as fuck!

  • Mr Nick Nightly
  • Bop

    Dan can’t be whiter than a dutchman. 🙂

  • Boom, I’m here

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes fucking ROCKS!!!!

  • I disbelieve that Dan is the whitest supernaught. I’m translucent

  • “Cold in july” sounds like a document of finnish summer, lol. Seriously though, I wanna see that like nobody’s business

  • I’m a lonely sad man – where’s Scarlett Johanssen?

  • “Better living through chemistry” sounds interesting. I have another Sam Rockwell film to check this christmas though; “A Single Shot”

  • Stalkeye

    Hell yea! Very, very, very Souless.
    Gimmie Wings, Doobie Bros, Hall & Oats and Steely Dan over this type of Shite anyday!!

  • F-word!!!!!! Yeaaaaaaaah. John Wick tends to raise those

  • Zero Theorem!!!! Nick, goddammit!

  • Stalkeye

    Damn!! How could I forget one of my favorite Punks bands evah??!!?
    It’s been over a decade since i last listened to Sanity clause.

    Thanks, Brother and Merry ‘mas to you and your fam as well!

  • Class wars? So “Cheap thrills” is the comedy version of “The Purge: Anarchy”

  • Stalkeye

    true that!

    And unlike your Bigoted Dutchmen, Danny hooked up with a Sista who looked like the chick from GOT. Now he has some Black on him.
    LMAO[email protected]@._V1_.jpg

    Lucky Bastid! (0:<

  • “Fuck the Oscars….” LOL

  • The Raid 2! Fuck yeah!

  • Next year on the Shut Up Kids: Walter Murch

  • Grand Piano was good

  • Well, you guys didn’t corrupt John so badly. The F-bombs were in deserved places

  • Yeah. Sam loves Single Shot. Need to watch it too!

  • She had some white in her, if you know what I mean.

  • Such a great flick.

  • Found it funny he thought my dog was my daughter crying, ha!

  • Baby steps I’m sure.

  • Stalkeye

    You never got to tell me the entire story.
    It was reserved for whenever me, you and Col would meet up.
    Whenever that is. heh-heh.

  • Don’t say that. I said during one of our recordings that John is such a nice guy, that he’s like the Mr.Rogers of movie reviewers

  • Well, pre-recording actually. I should just record everything I guess

  • Dude…

  • Yes you should record everything!

  • I bet he’d have some stories

  • It was during the preparation chit-chat. We “synchronize watches” after that usually, because everybody records their own sides. Skype has such a shitty audio quality

  • Holy shit, I forgot he did Touch of Evil!

  • The Restoration, though – not the original

  • Sure, but still… He worked on Touch of Evil.

  • True

  • Col. Tigh-Fighter

    Spoiler Alert: He didn’t dig it.

  • Bop

    Great action, but too much pause in between.

  • Bop

    Define bush.

  • Bop

    I am surprised Kevin Nash didn’t tear a quad when he shed some tears.

  • Bop

    Women with long hair and bell bottoms are my kryptonite.

  • A pubic ‘fro.

  • Bop

    Just wanted to make sure. 🙂

  • Bop

    Merry Christmas everyone. Here is to hoping Addie has a blast.

  • Mr Nick Nightly


  • A late Merry Christmas to you all.

    Haven’t heard this podcast yet.

    So, and for no particular reason, i’d like to share with you this portuguese song to you all. It’s called “Chuva”, performed by the singer Mariza, and it belongs to the Fado genre. Enjoy.

  • Pretty women with long hair are my kryptonite. Specially blondes.

  • So i guess you are not a fan of HEAT.

  • This actress is gorgeaus.

  • It was damn good

  • Bop

    You guessed right.

  • Stalkeye

    That she is and a Merry belated Christmas, to you Senior Salvera!
    (i know you’re gonna give me Hell if i had mispronounced your last name, but my intentions were noble. LOL)

  • Stalkeye

    I concur, Brother Bop!
    Bless her heart.

  • Stalkeye

    “Fuck the Oscars’!

    Well said, Jonathan!

  • Stalkeye

    Heat is like EFNY and The Dark Knight, a Movie that proved that you didnt need plenty of action in order for it to be a great Film.

  • Hell you shall have. It’s Saraiva, dammit!! Salvera, what the hell!! That doesn’t even exist in bloody spanish, LOL!!

    Yeah, belated merry christmas to you too, pal! I hope you had lots of fun. And pwesents!

  • Loser!

  • Stalkeye

    OK, I snatched Pt2 early Xmas eve and here’s my comments;
    Cold in July took me by surprise since I thought it was your typical, “you killed my Son, so I’m gonna make your life a living hell” type of film. The story arc had set it apart from various indy films of that genre. Glad I took you guys’ advice to see it for myself.
    I had Blue ruin on my Netflix queue for quite sometime and may give it a watch one day. LOL

    No mention of Snowpiercer? Arrrrggghh!!

    Personally, The Raid redemption is still superior to The Raid 2. but both were solid.
    Good Pick, Nick!

    BTW I love various films from Comic adaptations, Horror, Drama , Sci fi some good indies, etc.

    I gotta check out John Wick, the trailer looks sick!

    You guys are interviewing Al lenong? Cool! Ask him about his thoughts on the late Brandon lee since he was one of the baddies in Rapid Fire.

    Hope you guys had a great Holiday.

  • Damn right. And together with those two great examples i also add Ghost In The Shell, which for me is like the anime SF version Heat, or Heat is the live non-SF version of GITS. For me, HEAT, TDK and GHOST IN THE SHELL are perfect action movies. If i was a director making action films, those would be my template.

  • Stalkeye

    Asi… nice. 😛

  • Bop

    Ha, ha.

  • That’s be being nice to those who are negative about HEAT. You have no idea how much i love that movie.

  • I heard it was your idea for the SUKs to interview Al Leong. If so, excelent choice, i’m glad you gave them the idea.

  • Stalkeye

    LMMFAO my bad. 😛
    I made out OK, but my Godkids have enough pwesants to open their own Toystore. (Spoiled brats..I keed, I keed.)
    Now i gotta work off all the pounds I gained from Thanksgiving and Yesterday. Why did i have to marry such a great Cook and Baker? LOL

  • Stalkeye

    In my bed!! 😛

  • Bop

    I don’t remember anything from the movie anymore except that the showdown between Pacino and DeNiro was an anti-climax for me.

    And although action movies are my favorite genre I like to watch movies that have zero or little action.

  • 1- Snowpiercer is in my to-watch list.
    2-Al does mention Brandon Lee for sure.

    Hope you had a good Christmas, dude!

  • You know the old saying: a man is hooked by his stomach.

  • THX, likewise.

  • Bop

    Yeah, it was. And I can’t wait to hear the Al Leong interview. Al Leong rules.

  • Bop

    I don’t know if there is a more anticipated guest on the SUK than Al Leong for me.

  • Bop

    Call me Bop.

  • Bop

    So who is your favorite blonde then?

  • Bop

    Dan. I remember you saying during the Top 5 Action scenes podcast that you almost put the end of Cold In July at number 5. Are you sure that was end of the movie you mentioned?

  • Yup. That ending is intense.

  • Can’t fuckin wait for that one….

  • Stalkeye

    Same to you, D!

    I had a blast, especially during the 24th.

    My Friend sent me this on Christmas eve as a razz, but it may be worth something down the line. Into the basement he goes!! (0:<

    Looking forward to listening to the next SUKast!

    John must return!

  • Stalkeye

    Well, TBH the ending felt rushed but all in all it was a very good Film.

  • Stalkeye

    That Canadian Rock Band?

  • A girl who lives near where i live, but who i have yet to make her acquaintance, alas.
    Or swedish girls.

    Thing is, the very first girl i fell inlove was a blonde, and i guess that set the precedent. I love girls of all kinds, but blondes are really my top favorite kind.

  • Indeed he does. He has one of the funniest moments in Die Hard when he hides beyind a counter and gets distracted by the candies.

  • Bop

    Not a fan. 🙂

  • Bop

    My favorite scenes of him are very probably Djengis Khan in Bill & Ted’s.

  • Stalkeye

    Me neither. Gotta ask Pucky if he listens to Rush………

    .. or Nickleback.
    I keed, I keed.

  • Watched “Blue Ruin” tonight. Tense, tragic fucking film. Really good and recommended for sure.

  • Ary, apes are not monkeys. Both are primates, though.

  • I keep hearing so much good things about COLD IN JULY, i have to watch it now.

  • coolhandjuke

    in the new year, i’m getting back to what’s important in life: shitting on ugly women’s bewbs…

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I think you’ll dig it.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Fat ones, I hope.

  • coolhandjuke

    Are there any other kind?

  • Even fatter

  • Dan or you called it Michael Mann-esque, so i’m pretty sure i will.

  • -Maps to the Stars
    -The Rover

    Films without the PR machine behind them, that sort of came and went with little or no fanfare. Well worth watching IMO

  • I guess if the apes sounded like Roddy McDowall it would have been shitty……

  • I guess if Tom Cruise sounded like Roddy McDowall it would have been shitty…..

  • Ive always loved Kevin Nash. He had a rough christmas……. Have not seen John Wick.Yet

  • Much thanks for this list, need to check them out.

  • We both did.
