    Mature content? What are you making, a porno?

  • I_am_better

    I think the twist was that the children were NOT made of corn

  • Foster Breadford

    Throwing rocks tonight

  • Foster Breadford

    As far as I know, there’s profanity and that’s it. Perhaps I should read the first letter of each dialogue line and see if I’ve accidentally written a code.

  • I_am_better

    Conclusionism:

    I guess it’s time to retire

  • Foster Breadford

    The corresponding Life Aquatic image doesn’t appear to have made it to the internet.

  • I_am_better

    Oh, I was talking about me

  • Foster Breadford

    The corresponding A Serious Man image doesn’t appear to have made it to the internet.

  • I_am_better

    You might be the only person in the world who saw “Scoop”

  • Foster Breadford

    I think it’s a lot of fun. Especially during that not-so-great period of his career.

  • Foster Breadford

    I see every Woody Allen movie.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    You can’t quit!

  • Foster Breadford

    Now you like us!

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    No one shrugs off punishment like you do https://media.giphy.com/media/xdnfWJFRpP8Eo/giphy.gif

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I sense a hug coming on

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    B E S U R E T O D R I N K Y O U R O V A L T I N E

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    You stay out of this.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Chris’ thought is the same I had about Ghostbusters. Venkman specifically mentioned franchise rights.

  • I_am_better

    That would’ve been the smart way to do it.
    But this is Sony after all, so…

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    You could even girl power it x2 by having them save a couple of the original ‘busters.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Conclusionism probably describes the 21st century better than any term I’ve ever heard.

  • franks_television

    It was a good run.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    At the end of 45 Years does she fall out of a church bell tower?

  • Foster Breadford

    We’ve contributed something to the culture at least.

  • Foster Breadford

    Have we talked about this? That movie is so good until that last 5 seconds.

  • Foster Breadford

    Almost a year! Maybe a full year.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    We never have.

  • Foster Breadford

    Ponyboy broke some fingers when I opined as much.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Sorry PB if you see this, but Vertigo is one of the most overrated classics ever.

  • Foster Breadford

    You’ll have the Austrians and Manitobans after you now.

  • franks_television

    I only got through 12 comics

  • Foster Breadford

    You got some laughs, though.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    You’re going to need a better wartime consigliere than Walden Pond.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    WTF MAN I do show prep for VL now?

  • Foster Breadford

    This is a teaser for the real deal.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    haha I’m just fucking with you.

  • franks_television

    I guess that’s the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuating itself.

  • Foster Breadford

    Chris has no fear of offending our associate producer.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    That was actually really nice. Better than Lost for sure.

  • Foster Breadford

    Or our filmmaker peers.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    He’s burning bridges left and right.

  • Foster Breadford

    Haha the local art-house theater now puts a Bechdel Test rating next to its upcoming titles.

  • Foster Breadford

    Unfortunately I find it entertaining.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Take that MPAA! I thought Bechdel was pass/fail. Is there a scale?

  • Foster Breadford

    It’s an A-F scale it looks like. I’m not sure how we determine that since there’s 3 qualifiers.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    If that’s a joke about feminists and STEM I don’t appreciate it.

  • Foster Breadford

    We’ll see if that boosts ticket sales for their classic Hollywood repertory series.

  • Foster Breadford

    Which makes me more of an outsider? Liking Scoop or finding Leslie Mann funny?

  • Foster Breadford

    Asking for a friend

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Scoop

  • Foster Breadford

    Interesting.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Wasn’t a fan of Scoop, but maybe that will change with the upcoming bombardment.

  • Foster Breadford

    Only 4 years left to find out.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    There’s going to be a period of about 6 months or so that’s going to be absolutely brutal.

  • Foster Breadford

    What if we doubled up? Or do we want to prolong this as long as it has potential for?

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I think we’ll talk Thurs/Fri about all this.

  • Foster Breadford

    Don’t want the rubes to steal our ideas.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch
  • franks_television

    Nice.

  • franks_television

    That’s hardcore.

  • Foster Breadford

    I’m about to send you my answers to the questions.

  • Foster Breadford

    I feel like my answers are way too long.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    They’ll fit into 60 seconds.

  • Foster Breadford

    I get the sense that Max Landis is a punk.

  • Foster Breadford

    Probably takes a lot of selfies.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Oh man he so is, but occasionally he hits onto some truth.

  • Foster Breadford

    I don’t think I could follow him on Twitter.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I don’t Twitter at all, so no one is followable.

  • Foster Breadford

    Walden Pond knocks it out of the park when he gets really bored and tweets a ton.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    He’s going to be a star someday.

  • Foster Breadford

    Just skipped his first sold out premiere. A sign of greatness.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Did have a Native American woman go in his stead?

  • Foster Breadford

    Hahaha he’s going to be so mad he didn’t think of that. We did get an Indian-American to go with the extra ticket incidentally. The other kind.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Not quite as impressive on the progressive stack, but it still works.

  • Foster Breadford

    The debate show has potential to get pretty academic with these hard hitting questions.

  • Foster Breadford

    I had to do some real thinking.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Out of courtesy to you, I dropped the Zoe Saldana is Nina Simone blackface.

  • Foster Breadford

    Is she in blackface in that movie? I didn’t even know that.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    No she’s not. She’s too light skinned and not the right ethnicity. It’s all very…..debatable.

  • Foster Breadford

    She’s South American or something? Haha that can easily be another trap question. I don’t know that I feel strongly about it.

  • Foster Breadford

    I watched some sports debate shows to get a better sense of posture.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    We’re getting there. I feel like I have a learning curve all the time. Improve each time.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    The outrage culture sure makes topics plentiful.

  • Foster Breadford

    You probably have a better case there than a more general “Why is this cast white?” sort of thing.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I’m in the camp that we don’t need an ancestry.com profile for an actor to portray people.

  • Foster Breadford

    It probably depends to some extent on who is being portrayed. I have more of an issue with random people getting upset about a movie they’ve never heard of before because they hear it’s got blackface as opposed to if Nina Simone fans feel the choice is inappropriate.

  • Dee
  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Of course there is some gray area here. I don’t mean to paint with a broad brush.

  • Foster Breadford

    This is why your questions are hard!

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I’m hoping that makes us unique.

  • Foster Breadford

    That and the hoodie.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Dress for success.

  • I_am_better

    What have you done?

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead
  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Tim’s having a hard time processing his feelings.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    I missed this whole movie business. Good for you guys.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    The trailer looks good, music great, voices a little tinny in spots. Why is it black and white you pretentious bastards.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    Am I the only one here? Typical.

  • I_am_better

    Huh?

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Tim’s doing his C-3PO imitation.

  • I_am_better
  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    Well, Moose is fucked now.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    Well, if it isn’t little R2-FU.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Tim, I’m not your enemy.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    I do not want to go commenting on Youtube,

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    You enjoy a taste of the whip, admit it.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch
  • I_am_better

    Well, I think my work for today is done.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    It gets easier after a few months.

  • I_am_better

    I’ll post the GoT season 6 full trailer when I punch back in tomorrow.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    Is that the route to success?

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Stay tuned for the answers friends.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Is that why you been dropping it on us?

  • Kylo Ronin

    Congrats on the premiere!

  • Kylo Ronin

    It’s a small town?

  • Kylo Ronin

    I like movies, Zissou.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    You can tell when Ronin shows up to the party. Your inbox gets flooded with upvotes.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Death Wish 6: Son of Paul Kersey. Starring Walden Pond.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Of the mature content in the script?

  • Kylo Ronin

    Wait, so is this a student film then?

  • Kylo Ronin

    Unless they’re okay with it?

  • Kylo Ronin

    I don’t filmmake so I wouldn’t know.

  • Kylo Ronin

    And then sideboob is brought.

  • Kylo Ronin

    FUCK SIDEBOOB.

  • Kylo Ronin

    *inserts Michael Caine quote here from that Cider House Rules movie*

  • Kylo Ronin

    I want a buffet when it comes to movies.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Just a little bit of everything.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Desperation?

  • Kylo Ronin

    TAK.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I kinda thought Signs was doing that whole is the apocalypse happening or not kinda deal.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Influenza, Nebraska-

    Characters: The apocalypse is happening! Why?!

    The Author: Because you’re all terrible. *goes on to make some chemex*

  • Kylo Ronin

    You’re just saying that because you don’t like Fargo the TV show.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Even though you’re probably right.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Oh Zissou, no, don’t do the puns now, not when you’re doing the grand finale.

  • Kylo Ronin

    The Stand was da bomb, yo!

  • Kylo Ronin

    No, we just listened to it.

  • Kylo Ronin

    So, in other words, concerning Paul Feig…

  • Kylo Ronin

    Leslie Jones did say that someone who worked at an MTA said it was cool that they were getting representation so there’s that. I just hope the trailer was just bad and not the movie.

  • Kylo Ronin

    She’s a maneater…

  • Kylo Ronin

    I still haven’t seen Knocked Up yet. Dammit.

  • Kylo Ronin

    So in other words, concerning Bernie, basically the Lebowski clip below.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Hey Zissou, we have to do a show together. Doesn’t matter how, just as long as it gets made!

  • Kylo Ronin

    *sigh*….fuck my life

  • Kylo Ronin

    OH REALLY, YOU’RE AGAINST THAT WHOLE THIS MOVIE SUCKS AND THIS MOVIE DOESN’T SUCK?! REALLY? BULL. FUCKING. SHIT.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I haven’t bothered watching anything Michael Moore.

  • Kylo Ronin

    A teacher recommended Fahrenheit 9/11 to me. The same one who made me feel dumb by sending my paper to be graded by her college friend.

  • Kylo Ronin

    So, uh, yeah, never even bothered with Fahrenheit 9/11.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I think I have way too many movies that I enjoyed watching from the last decade.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I like The Purple Rose of Cairo. That is all.

  • Kylo Ronin

    *SIGH*

  • Kylo Ronin

    GONNA REFRAIN FROM COMMENTING.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Oh God, don’t bring up Cosby….

  • Kylo Ronin

    GAH!

  • Kylo Ronin

    Ohthankgodabe’shere.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Nice, his debate show is pretty cool!

  • Kylo Ronin

    Dammit, still gonna bring up filmmakers who did Very Bad Things.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I want some flapjacks right now.

  • Kylo Ronin

    You have the free ticket! Don’t pay for another one!

  • Kylo Ronin

    I’ll sub to your channel, guys.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Well, if you say it’s gonna fail, then yeah, sheesh!

  • Kylo Ronin

    Why would I use YouTube ironically?!

  • Kylo Ronin

    Honduras coffee.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I’m not crying!

  • Kylo Ronin

    I couldn’t find a better quality version of this ending but it sums up how I feel.

  • Foster Breadford

    It’s pretty good.

  • Foster Breadford

    Alright!

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Hmm. Is there still some confusion about what’s happening?

  • Foster Breadford

    Hahaha

  • Foster Breadford

    Indeed.

  • Foster Breadford

    Just low budget.

  • Foster Breadford

    Sub the Movies and Stuff channel. We’ll be on there.

  • Foster Breadford

    It’ll be easier when we have links to post.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Ronin was probably sobbing through the whole show. It makes it hard to listen.

  • Foster Breadford

    People have trouble understanding also that we’ll be back next week.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Including your co-host.

  • Foster Breadford

    Haha yes including him. I tried.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Hell of a send off.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Oh, so I’m good to go then.

  • Kylo Ronin

    It probably is.

  • Foster Breadford

    No, I just thought it was funny to bring it up and as of this weekend they’ve started to as well.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Man, I’m all for the Mako Mori test anyway.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    Just checking to make sure it stays dead
