We are back from our Thanksgiving Hiatus. Hopefully our absence did nothing to impede your enjoyment of feasting!
Sadly it seems that most of this week's episode was destroyed by over exposure to cosmic rays, instead of getting super powers it just implode with a sticky pop. I think we can all agree that since you will never hear it I can safely say that it was likely the most insightful, witty, and relevant banter ever to grace the topic of film. It is a sad day for the world. Yet we must press on. In the news we discuss some Riddick-ulous happenings, and we continue the crusade for woman's rights in film! Our Radar segment, sadly one of those tragically cut short, focuses on the upcoming documentary The Rep. A film about repertory theatres and how awesome they are. In the lost ending of the segment Ryan and I travel to a Crossroads and, much like Robert Johnson, make a deal for incredible blues guitar skills that we can use to open our own repertory theatre.
Our Muppets review was crushed into a fine powder that when snorted took one on a Magical Electric Mayhem Bus Ride of Felt. The movie itself was a wonderment of awesome and while not perfect certainly pulled the Muppets back to the forefront of the public conscious. The Netflix bit was beyond repair. We buried it in Ryan's back yard and then quickly had to rush to the rescue when it crawled undead from its shallow grave and was attempting to squeeze through the fence and eat the neighbor's dog. We still got in the goods on our favorite holiday films though! As there were no new movies releasing in theatres this week Matt decided to entertain us with a rousing limerick about a fine gentleman who hailed from Nantucket and boasted some amazing feats of skill. Upon hearing said verse Ryan immediately experienced a second puberty, shot gunned three beers and drove a Cameo to the Bahamas. We are not even legally allowed to think on the actions said criminal rhyme encouraged in myself. Enjoy the weird mini episode and we will see you next week for a proper dose.
