Lake Placid

00:0000:00

This week on Myopia: Defend Your Childhood, we visit Bill Pullman after that whole President thing and hear some of the worst dialog put to celluloid. We watched Lake Placid, people really need to stop ripping off Steven Spielberg, ok? And no, your pitch of what if Betty White were the bad guy in a Jurassic Park meets Jaws crossover starring a giant alligator does not sweeten the pot. Well, I am lying, that sounds amazing; too bad this was not.

Note: There is some mild static on this episode, I tried to fix it, but could not get it completely. Sorry!

Godzilla

00:0000:00

Welcome to the monster movie month Matthew maintained! This year for October we crack out a few spooky movies and have a little fun with them; well, as much as can be had with some of this crap. We start with the baffling big budget monster film Godzilla (1998). Fresh off the crushing success of Independence Day, Roland Emmerich has made some upgrades! Replacing sexy and charismatic Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum with Matthew Broderick and Hank Azaria. Replacing sexy love interest Vivica A Fox with Maria Pittio. And replacing the heroic Bill Pullman with Michael Learner (playing Mayor Ebert, a reviewer who gave Independence Day a bad review). The only true upgrade was replacing Randy Quaid with Jeno Reno. So let's get into a Godzilla movie so bad that it saved ToHo productions who made a film where their Godzilla kills this one

Hey all! I hope you are having a good week as rain pelts me here in Atlanta. As promised, we are starting a new once-monthly series with Daniel Suddes as a bonus run. The series dubbed Disremembered attempts to dissect the turbulent stories behind movies. This season (which will return if it gets good feedback) is on the rise and fall of one of the most interesting, powerful, and controversial people in film in recent decades Michael Eisner. Jon and I commentate while Daniel desperately tries to talk. Enjoy!

Boondock Saints

00:0000:00

Welcome to the next month in our season 5 line-up, Cool In College. Curated by Daniel, these movies were the posters on every wall sold in the quads from under a cheap canopy. These were the movies you thought were profound when you were in your late teens and early twenties, do they hold up or are they cheap messages and indie film money from the 90's. We will find out together! 

Our first pick is the box office poison that was Boondock Saints. According to Box Office Mojo, the widest release it had was five theaters and made $30,471 on a $6,000,000 investment. The cult status came later of this neo-libertarian crime? revenge? movie! Prepare for homophobia!

Little Rascals

Has there ever been a joke that people around you like, but you just don't find funny? Maybe it has been stripped down from a better joke, or told so many times that it is no longer funny. With that image in your head, we watch the Little Rascals, from the director of Wayne's World. You heard me. 

This is the last precocious kid movie of the month and boy is it as doozy with a surprise cameo you won't expect; I was gobsmacked.

As precoucious kid month rolls on, we watch a Matthew classic! While this was not a movie I had not seen before, it lurks on in the pantheon of weird 80s movies. It has all the classic elements, nerd girl who is actually gorgeous but hideous because she has glasses, jocks and nerds, washed out hippies, and Eisenhower ordering the destruction of alien technology. Also, boring pacing! Fun!

Welcome to Season 5 of Myopia: Defend Your Childhood! We continue the precociousness with a blast from the cartoon past, which is the only reason I can imagine that Father Guido Sarducci, Dan Ackroyd, Clint Eastwood, Rodney Dangerfield, and Mel Gibson did cameos.  Further, this helps cement Christina Ricci in the 1990s, why Brad Garrett is CGI animated in all of Pixar's movies, and is between starring in While You Were Sleeping and Independence Day for Bill Pullman. We watched the CGI-tastic Casper from 1995.

So, in honor of our hundreds of listeners in Australia and New Zealand and the four people in Argentina, two in Chile, ten in South Africa, and twenty-four listeners in Brazil, we would like to share Thomas' choice, a winter film; Batman Returns.

And what's not to like? Thomas' first podcast ever (and now look at him!) Danny Devito as the Penguin, Christopher Walken as a prick, Michael Keaton as Batman (or Bruce Wayne when he is wearing glasses), and Michelle Pfeiffer as a cat lady, I mean Catwoman!

We are watching Mission Impossible!

This surprise remake of an old TV property with the twists and turns that on Brian de Palma could deliever,  led to other remakes like The A-Team, The Avengers (with Uma Thurman), the Saint, and SWAT. Hey, at least some of these sequels are pretty good.

Hello there! I hope that summer is treating you with sunny days and frosty air conditioning! I am from Atlanta, as many here know, and it is too hot to think...or be funny, hence reruns! We return this we with a Sci-Fi blast from the past and you know what that means... this is Matthew's choice! The Last Starfighter, which at this point more people know from Robot Chicken than the original movie!

As an aside, the premise of the movie is great, though I think the sequel would be along the lines of Polybius.

Hello friends and thanks for tuning in during this summer break! I hope you are staying refreshed and cool.  This week we rerun a classic: Road House. Why is it a classic, you may ask. Well, I'll tell you! Daniel picked this one for many reasons. First, it was one of the most requested movies we had done to date. Second, it was a lot of fun to record, funny to listen to, and memorable overall. Third, panelist Zack wanders off for roughly twenty minutes in the middle.

This movie gets to the meat of it all, answering questions like 'do pain hurt?' (answer: don't) 'Will you get to sleep when you die?' (answer: do) 'Does anyone in this world wear underwear, even when zipping jeans? (answer: don't). Oh what fun!
