The 6 million dollar poster.

This episode we toss the old football around and tackle The Room (2003) starring, directed, produced, written and carried to term by Tommy Wiseau.  How this steaming pile of self indulgence cost around six million dollars, we’ll never know.

Then after the break we discuss the upcoming Ridley Scott Robin Hood movie and how it was originally written as a role reversal plot. We also discuss other stories that would benefit from seeing them from the other side of view.  Also a PSA against seeing Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist.

    literally, as I was listening to this podcast I was surfing my netflix account and on “movies you might like” they recommended for me “The Room” because I liked “Drag Me To Hell”

    Both involved being dragged into hell… One a little more literally than the other. Allison Lohman would have been a lot less stressed out if every time she went to a psychic, they just said, “don’t worry about it!” in their best Tommy Wiseau voice. Tell me that’s not true.

    When it comes to war movies from the other side I got y’all covered. A GREAT movie about Nazis where you can sympathize with ’em is “Stalingrad”. It’s directed by the same director who did “Das Boot”, and it’s amazing. It’s told from the perspective of the common foot soldier in the battle of Stalingrad and it really puts a human face on the common German soldier.
    Oh, and the movie “Joyeux Noel” is about WWI from the perspectives of the Germans, French British and Scottish. It’s a damn good movie and I highly recommend it for y’all.
    And a good movie about the other side of the Korean War would be “Tae Guk Gi”. It presents the perspectives of both North and South Korea and hardly even involves the Americans at all.

    And how could you forget “American Psycho” for a serial killer’s perspective? Even if it has Christian Bale in it.
