  • RJD as host this time? Interesting.

  • Dammit, I leave and then Rister comes on.

  • Abe

    Hey the man had his terms.

  • Abe

    We like to shakes things up every 4 months.

  • RJD

    Don’t hold your breath

  • RJD

    Missed ya

  • RJD

    Hosting is hard

  • ErnestRister

    This was a whole lot of fun.

  • ErnestRister

    The SUK gang is going to sue me for repeating the Michael Clark Duncan story.

  • Abe

    I’ve already been contacted by their attorney.

  • Abe

    It was! You were a blast.

  • ErnestRister

    Love Ronnie’s Al Pacino impersonation.

  • ErnestRister

    Warren Beatty’s REDS, not Robert Redford’s REDS….how did I miss that…

  • ErnestRister

    “I’m driving to Georgia tonight with a baseball bat. You better lock your doors, Ronnie.”

  • ErnestRister

    “Don’t vote. Don’t even open the page, because you’ll decrease my chances of winning.”

  • Abe

    Line of the show!

  • Abe

    You lost some cred in my eyes.

  • ErnestRister

    I didn’t say it, Ronnie did. I just didn’t call him on it. I’m a failure, missed it.

  • Abe

    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

  • ErnestRister

    Great story about Tommy Lee Jones…he told this to the senior BFA acting class at UT when he came to visit in 1993. He was sent a script for a sequel to Lonesome Dove. He hated it so much, he went outside, placed the script on a fence post in his backyard on his ranch in Texas…then went and got his shotgun, and proceeded to blast the thing, and then sent the shattered remains to his agent as his answer.

  • I think I should point out that Slate only debated on the show after I left. My awesomeness was too much for him. 😛

  • Abe

    Oh look who got mouthy all of a sudden!

  • ErnestRister

    Damn, I talk too fast. Doing podcasts is like middle-age speech therapy.

  • Dee

    “Dioverse”

  • Dee

    I get you just fine

  • Dee

    And Hitchcock.

  • Dee

    Dennis Muren also has quite a big Oscar collection.

  • Abe

    Oh no you sound perfect.

  • Dee

    I tell you what was going on in that car in Titanic.

  • Abe

    You figured it out?

  • Abe

    I don’t even want to imagine it.

  • Dee
  • Dee

    Million Dollar Baby was not that good.

  • Dee

    Oscar is politics.

  • Dee

    “Crash” is a classic example.

  • Dee

    This is the story I heard about Cameron’s Spiderman: He had to submit a script in time so he would not lose the rights. That’s why he just polished a crappy 1st draft that was written by someone else and submitted it.

  • Abe

    Yes it is. Crash is shockingly bad.

  • Abe

    I seem to recall there was something monumentally convoluted going on there as well. Something like Cameron would get paid a percentage of the budget his script would require. So, he went crazy with it.

  • Dee

    Rister puts on Schindler’s List when he wants to sleep.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Get ready to answer to this fella!

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I put it on to masturbate to all that jew wang!

  • Dee

    omg

  • Dee

    Pulp Fiction for sure.

  • Dee

    I never liked Forrest Gump.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    What? There’s a lot of cock in that movie.

  • Dee

    lol, outrageous

  • Abe

    I was shocked to learn there was a book first because it sure felt like they had a gimmick special effect and decided to wrap a movie around that.

  • Dee

    I shock you even more: the book has a sequel.

  • Abe

    Color me shocked!

  • Dee

    Oscar for best movie ever: Apocalypse Now

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I haven’t read the sequel but the original book is fucking awesome.

  • Dee

    Better than the movie? Do you like the movie?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I do like the movie, but they are completely different. The book is a straight comedy and gets pretty wild. The movie just borrows the concept and goes the Oscar route.

  • Dee

    Bullock- overrated

  • Abe

    Well shit. I trust your judgment. I’ll add it to my never ending book list.

  • Dee

    woo-ha

  • Dee

    I actually think it’s better actors like Pacino or whatever get an Oscar for a so-so movie before they give up and resort to playing villains in action movies.

  • Dee

    Theron a bad actress?

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Trust me.

  • Abe

    You haven’t steered me wrong yet.

  • Dee

    I think it’s not legal to sell Oscars.

  • Abe

    Really?

  • Dee

    Yeah… you never really own an Oscar. It’s just “borrowed” by the Academy”.

  • Dee

    At least I remember it like that. I could google it, but I don’t feel like it right now.

  • RJD

    man hosting is so hard im lucky i didnt call it sean penns reds

  • RJD

    da worst

  • RJD

    i know he becomes awrestler instead of a jogger, but does jenny still rape him ?

  • RJD

    thats great.

    I never watched any of the sequels because of the cast changes

  • RJD

    maybe another host next week. stay tuned …

  • I_am_better

    Love the irish accent, Ernest

  • I_am_better

    Best produced? Interesting

  • I_am_better

    “Mommy, why did she slap the window…?” LMAO

  • I_am_better

    Still trying to kill Robert Forster?

  • I_am_better

    “Crash” fucking sucks

  • I_am_better

    Tommy Lee Jones is kinda acting like Tommy Lee Jones

  • I_am_better

    Hannibal again…. theme of the week?

  • I_am_better

    Best movie in 1994? A split between “Pulp Fiction”, “Shawshank Redemption” or “Interview with the Vampire”

  • I_am_better

    Best movie ever?
    Jaws.

  • Willard Bombadil

    Fascinating take on the function of the oscars.

  • I_am_better

    Yup

  • Willard Bombadil

    Flashdance.

  • I_am_better

    Hard to beat that

  • I_am_better

    Warren Beatty’s “Reds”, Dio!

  • I_am_better
  • Abe

    Not me! Dan is hell bent.

  • Abe

    It really was. I hadn’t thought along those lines before.

  • Abe

    Not backing down. It’s a remarkable performance!

  • Willard Bombadil

    I bet that’s why Mr Buri always won.

  • I_am_better

    I agree that it IS the one that stands out of that film. He was supported by that great team there though. But Ford was pretty cold in that

  • I_am_better

    One day, there needs to be a podcast where everybody puts on a fake accent

  • ErnestRister

    Sure as me name be Fluther McFluther…

  • ErnestRister

    Your morning dose of Schindler’s List.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=K5lQA3bipHc

  • ErnestRister

    You never thought about comparing an awards show to a serial killer?

  • ErnestRister

    Interviewed an old black Irish man on the Island of St. Thomas. Couldn’t understand a damn thing he was saying, but he was having a ball. Sample: “It was back in the day, back when we was running a beef line away from the goddamn Germans.” No idea what the man was talking about, just bought him another drink and kept rolling.

  • The Shawshank Redemption owns Pulp Fiction. Fuck Pulp Fiction.

  • Abe

    *Gasp*

  • Abe

  • I’ve never understood the love for it. I don’t get it, at all. Reservoir Dogs is way, way better. The best thing he ever wrote was True Romance.

  • Abe

    I don’t know about you. I really don’t.

  • Come on now Shareef you’re losing us, you’re losing us man. Jesus.

  • I shared the theory on AICN years ago that if you saw Reservoir Dogs before Pulp Fiction, you wouldn’t like Pulp Fiction as much and 9 times out of 10 you’d say RD is the better film. It’s obviously impossible to prove, but I stand by it.

  • Abe

    Okay that makes a lot of sense. Could be the case.

  • Abe

    Shareef has his own Shareef logic.

  • NOOOOOO DON’T MENTION A BEAUTIFUL MIND EVER AHHHHHHHHHHHH SO BAD SO BAD

  • I still have nightmares of Russell Crowe’s over the top fake crying.

  • White people movie = Schindler’s List

  • Agree with Rister on Ordinary People. It sucks it had to beat Raging Bull, but it’s a great film. It’s not even in the same class as A Beautiful Mind and Crash.

  • That’s right, don’t visit this site. It sucks! SUUUCCCKKKKKKSSSSSS!!! =P

  • Abe

    Oh you….where’s that blacklist on Disqus?

  • Your mod powers cannot sto……..

  • Tarmac492.1

    Though I still like Pulp Fiction, for me, it doesn’t hold up as well as ‘shank. I can’t even sit through the Travolta Uma Thurman scenes anymore.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I have a soft spot for Jackie Brown. It actually featured DeNiro doing something than being DeNiro. A great adaption of Rum Punch. True Romance, for me, has two truly great scenes. Walken/Hopper and then when Clarence Confront Drexel at the whorehouse. Oldman just rocks it. “We got ourselves a Charly Brosnon over here……” Love that shit.

  • Abe

    It’s not white boy day.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Haven’t listened to this yet, so forgive if I am repeating something from the ‘cast. TLJ performance is outstanding in The Fugitive. He simply isnt some block of granite. There is great humor in his performance and they fleshed out his team quite nicely. The banter between them is priceless and quite natural. The Fugitive is a great movie. Ohhhh, Andrew Davis you had the world in your hand and you decide to make a passion project after The Fugitive. Ugggghhhhhhhhh

  • Tarmac492.1

    Couldn’t sit through it. Lifetime Movie of the Week quality.

  • Abe

    It was split down the middle on the show. Dio and myself thought Tommy Lee was really good and Shareef and Ernest disagreed.

  • Tarmac492.1

    You and Dio are right. Obviously.

  • Abe

    Well you are my new favorite person.

  • ErnestRister

    I’ll make a boat and get away….with my magical Lucky Charms!

  • Abe

    You’re sticking to the joke. I’ll give you credit for that!

  • ErnestRister

    I was an A.D. on a college production of The Plow and the Stars. Lots and lots of Texans getting Irish accent direction. The director asked a staging question out loud and I answered him and he told me to shut up.

  • ErnestRister

    Top Gun…the Navy actually set up recruitment tables outside of the theaters getting young people to sign up. My dad is a Marine pilot. He hated Top Gun. He trained at Miramar. He called the movie total bullshit.

  • The Real Cat Man Do

    Interview was some amazing scenes chopped up with incoherent jiberish. Just like her Novels

  • The Real Cat Man Do

    Yes Slater and Patricia are awesome in that
    What happened to you Christian Slater

  • The Real Cat Man Do

    Whoa
    A movie, starring tom cruise is bullshit ?

  • The Real Cat Man Do

    One time, Tom Cruises attorney shut down a web site . True story

  • ErnestRister

    Roxx, the gang was asking if a modern war movie ever encouraged anyone to join the military. Top Gun is as close as it gets.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Slater has made some bad tv shows. He kind of made the jump from teen heartthrob to adult actor quite nicely. I even found him credible as an action star in Broken Arrow. He deserves a comeback. He is still young enough to contribute. Man, did my “special sock” get used alot to Patricia Arquette back in the day.

  • Tarmac492.1

    John Hurt. Nice.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Pulp Fiction is pure fun.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I really like Quiz Show. I don’t get Rob Morrow as an actor, though.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Love Pacino in Author, Author. He is quietly menacing in Godfather II.

  • Tarmac492.1

    BTW, first time listening to this podcast. Won’t be the last. Great fun and informative.

  • Abe

    Lost Highway. I have nothing else to say.

  • Fate_Slistcrunch

    I think you meant this site SUKs.

  • The Real Cat Man Do

    It is because they are stupid. Everyone thinks they are Maverick. Reality says most people are Goose.

  • The Real Cat Man Do

    She still has it. In a Mom kinda way

  • ErnestRister

    Who would want to be Maverick? I’d want to be Goose…or Tom Skerrit…turns out I’d probably be the sound guy at the bar having to listen to terrible covers of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” every night. Karaoke….the music of Satan.

  • ErnestRister

    I haven’t listened to or watched a certain other site’s Oscar show (which was taped a year ago)… I like keeping my food down. But this was an honor and a great time. Hope to do it again sometime.

  • ErnestRister

    And now, your morning dose of Schindler’s List:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=veztNJQyRJg

  • ErnestRister

    That’ what kills it for me…I don’t buy the dude for a second. Really wanted to like the movie. Turturro is great and so is Scofeld.

  • Abe

    Admittedly, I might have my Northern Exposure blinders on. I’ll rewatch it again someday.

  • ErnestRister

    Tommy Lee Jones is not amused.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qXPgwkVAo88

  • ErnestRister

    Remember Costner’s Boston accent in 13 Days? For some reason, I forgot it about it after the initial surprise in the first fifteen minutes…but Morrow distracted me the entire movie.

  • ErnestRister

    Look — never said, ever, that Mr. Jones was bad in the role. He rocked it. You know what? He didn’t have to learn an accent and didn’t have to play a Nazi sociopath driven to brutal murder by his own deep self loathing. Sorry. I’d love to see Tommy Lee Jones as Amon Goeth. I’m sure he would be outstanding. He was electric in Lincoln. But comparing what actually happened in 1993? Voters said Jones was due, Fiennes was exploding on the scene, and they knew they could give it to Fiennes later for something else.

    Well, guess what? Fiennes still hasn’t won.

  • Tarmac492.1

    morbid curiosity made me watch a little of the 2nd episode. Not surprisingly he went off on a tirade how Pacific Rim wasnt nominated for special effects. Regardless of the merits of his argument, he continues to prove how predictable he is shilling for his friends. Brian Williams has more credibility as a journalist. Maybe calling that other dude a journalist is an insult to journalists everywhere. BTW, loved the Michael Clarke Duncan story.

  • ErnestRister

    One aspect of visual effects that voters respond to is seeing things they haven’t seen before. We’ve seen giant CGI monsters and robots ad infinitum…fighting at night and in the rain.

    The thing I’ve come to understand about Knowles is that he doesn’t actually know what he thinks he does. People who are intellectually curious realize how much they don’t actually know about a subject and also know they’re never going to know enough. Knowles seems to latch onto a factoid, and then stop learning. Years ago he was bashing Walt Disney for paying the highest salaries in the animation industry…we’re fifteen years down the road since then and he’s still bashing Walt. There have been at least two outstanding biographies released in that time, but rather learn about his subject, he seems content that he knows all he needs to know. As a result, damn near every review of an actual Walt film that he writes has some glaring error or fallacy or prejudice. Harry is like that sports fan that shows up at your house during the Super Bowl and thinks that because he’s seen some football games, he’s Tom Landry. Next thing you know, he’s shooting his mouth off, but you quickly learn the guy doesn’t know the details of the game, just the broad concepts.

  • ErnestRister

    On the show, I spoke about the Oscars and who had the pole position. I also spoke about how the acting branch is by far the largest voting block. So, follow the actors. Look at the SAG awards. Look at that films actors are gravitating towards. Everyone’s been predicting Boyhood, and for good reasons, but I’m thinking Birdman is going to pull it out. So there you go, Ronnie. I’m out on the limb of the acting branch. Birdman takes Best Picture. Boyhood takes Best Director.

  • One doesn’t need to be a marine pilot to know Top Gun is total bullshit.

  • most people are barely qualified to drive an automatic gearbox car, much less a fighter jet.

  • there was a notorious lack of black people in Poland during WWII.

  • If RDJ can have a comeback, so should Christian Slater. He was fantastic in HE WAS A QUIET MAN.

  • Tarmac492.1

    That is supposed to be good, right? I should check that out. It was on Chiller once, but I didnt want to watch because of commercials and editing. Being a teen in the 80’s, Slater took a lot of shit because chicks dug him, but he is a solid actor. Pump Up the Volume is a classic. Plus Samantha Mathis was crazy hot in that.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Fiennes was amazing as Goeth, as well. Maybe as close to the devil as we will ever see. I do think that TLJ performance was multi-layered, as well. Big difference in the subject matter, however. I don’t think I would have complained either way with either of those two dudes winning.. Fugitive was great fun. Schindler’s List is an all-time masterpiece. I think Fiennes chances might have been hurt, just because every single thing about Schindler’s List was brilliant and he might not have stood out as much as Jones.

  • It is a pretty good movie.
    Slater as a young man could withstand acting alongside giant stars and yet be on their level.
    My reference for Slater is not those teen movie she made, but THE NAME OF THE ROSE.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Yeah, same thing my ROTC teacher said. That flying by the control tower? Court-martial.

  • Dan Tee

    It’s eye rape

  • Dan Tee

    Ordinary people is fantastic but not better thanEmpire strikes back
