    Waiting for Dan to assess the beer of the week might be the most suspenseful moment in SUK history.

  • The agony of waiting

  • I just want to inform you guys about something:
    Tomorrow afternoon i’m going to be subjected to a new surgery. Thankfully it’s something minor, much smaller then my earlier problem, so at least there’s that for a silver lining.

    Thank you and carry on.

  • Dee

    No, Alien 5 should not be a retcon. Retconning is for cowards.

  • Dee

    Most Alien scenes are still realized with costumes though.

  • I_am_better

    Ah – the new “Best Of”! Gotta relax after working for 6 FUCKING HOURS on my “slumming it on a lazy monday”-article

  • I_am_better

    Next time I’m just gonna publish a Tweet, lol

  • Dee

    What epic are you writing there? I hope it has 20 different endings.

  • I_am_better

    A “simple” list. But it sprawled, as always

  • Dee

    “Everyone has AIDS!”

  • I_am_better

    Well, flu at least

  • I_am_better

    I still gotta fix my header image. I noticed it has a typo in it, goddammit

  • I_am_better
  • Abe

    That’s our theme this week.

  • I_am_better

    I almost had 38 pictures. But i meshed them together to sections

  • Dee

    @Precious: “What is unusual about the movie tie-in version of the book is that the
    book’s title had also been changed to the movie’s–which means that the
    book is now called “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire”, even though it *is* the novel Push by Sapphire.” (imdb)

  • Dee

    Vanilla is known for stealing.

  • Dee

    I wanna make a pun with one of Vanilla Ice’s songs, but I only know one.

  • Dee

    What a sad world if you don’t believe in dinosaurs.

  • I_am_better

    There’s more than one?

  • I_am_better

    I guess it’s changed because that Chris Evans’ movie “Push” flopped, lol

  • I_am_better
  • I_am_better

    There IS a “The First International Church Of the Dinosaur” in Brooklyn though. I just Googled.

  • I_am_better
  • Dee

    I am afraid so.

  • Dee

    They changed the title for the film to avoid confusion with the Chris Evans-movies, yes.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Didnt he try thrash metal or something after rapping?

  • Tarmac492.1

    This winter sucks a dead man’s nut bag. Mother Nature’s freezing cold cunt is icing everyone. It is a balmy 39 degrees today. Gonna be back to 19 tomorrow. Fuck.

  • Dee

    NuMetal in Korn style, with raps and stuff.

  • Tarmac492.1

    All this talk of drinking is making the hangover come back. Too much Tullamore Dew.

  • Tarmac492.1

    How original.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Dinosaurs are made up? Who is this imbecile?

  • Tarmac492.1

    Dimetrodon was a cool dinosaur. The James Dean of dinosaurs, actually.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Interesting that you worked so hard on an article titled “Slumming it on a Lazy Monday”.

  • I_am_better

    It’s not quite titled like that, but like everything I do, it got out of hand. I went to my manic place again.

  • Abe

    Holy shit very nice teaser guys!

  • I_am_better

    Hmm…. should Dee try to get Refn on our next all-euro episode…?

  • Dee

    Christians against Dinosaurs, lmao

  • Dee

    The one about “My little Pony” fanfic?

  • Abe

    I think all BOPX episodes should be all Euros. The Americans are holding you back!

  • RJD

    where dey at ?

    where ???

  • RJD

    great week and great way to end it

  • I_am_better

    That’s the one!

  • I_am_better

    I’m about to start a “Mad Atheists Against Dinosaur Hating Christians”-society

  • Dee

    There is another movie site that posted the trailer for Jurassic World and “Brontosaurus” was name-dropped in the article. No names.

  • Dee

    Oh fuck, I hate iTunes.

  • What CGI alien in ALIEN3? It was an animatronic animated alien which was photographically superimposed on live plates.
    There might have been one CGI alien in the movie but it’s for a very quick shot, when the alien jumps from the molted metal pool and is covered in liquid metal, but that’s it, just that one or two seconds of screen time. The rest when we see the alien is traditional special effects from suits to animatronic and animation.

  • I_am_better

    Actually not animatronic, but a puppeteered one. At least in the long shots

  • I_am_better
  • I_am_better

    But yeah, the only CGI Alien-shot is that little glimpse of the top of the Aliens head cracking.

  • Christians who believe the dinosaurs lived alongside humans? So this people take their lessons of paleontology from watching The Flintstones?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Whatever it is, I think it looks like shit.

    Best to you with your surgery tomorrow.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Dat fin tho…

  • Mr Nick Nightly
  • Thanks, Nick.
    You guys gave me a good recovery treat, the interview with Nicolas Winding Refn.

    And i want to hear nothing but gushing about Valhalla Rising. I can’t believe you guys did a podcast about that movie without me, one of the biggest fans of this movie there is. But your interview with Refn more then makes up for it. What a fantastic coup! Well done! Biggest guest you guys had so far, as far i’m concerned.

  • Dee

    I show you a real bone.

  • For a tight ass christian she sure takes great pains to show off her “stuff”. What would Jesus think?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    This is a big one for us. I adore Refn’s work. I think you’ll be quite pleased with it.

  • I’m sure i’ll. Any of his movies in particular you like the most?

  • YOU BET HE SHOULD!!

  • I was caught off-guard myself too.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Lately I’ve been leaning towards “Only God Forgives.” I watched it again the other night and it is such a rich film.

  • When will the all euro episode will be made? Who will be on it?

  • Mine is Valhalla Rising, but i have been impressed with all his movies, no exception.
    ONLY GOD FORGIVES can be a difficult movie (not for me) especially if one’s first Refn movie is DRIVE. But it’s a very rewarding movie, cinematically.

  • I almost expected you to say any of the PUSHER movies or all of them as trilogy. Really.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I recommended OGF to a friend a while back and he told me that he heard it was lame. I told him whoever said that is someone he doesn’t need in his life.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I love them, especially the first. Bronson is probably my second favorite. They are all quite close to my heart.

  • Damn right! OGF is not a movie for pussies.

  • Did Refn told you guys the story when he was a student he threw a chair to his teacher?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Ha! No. We kept the focus on Valhalla Rising.

  • Many think that Refn has anger issues and he uses his movies as catharsis. I wouldn’t be surprised if true.

  • Did you guys listen to this commentary track on the movie’s DVD/blu-ray?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    My VH blu doesn’t have a commentary. It has a half hour “Making Of” doc though.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    He likes the heavy stuff, for sure.

  • It’s one of the best commentaries i ever heard.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I feel completely cheated.
