Hey there! Dave here writing the first words in a FilmRot post since 2007! This is also the first time I’ve ever edited and posted The Rotcast, so any errors should still fall on James’ shoulders as he was my Jedi master. Everybody knows Padawans know fuck all about audio editing. On with the post!
~~ Show Notes ~~
00:00:00 – Intro
â€¢ Dave got political, much to the chagrin of James and Andrea. Thanks, Democrats!
00:17:18 – The Hurt Locker
â€¢ James gave this movie a softball YES, Dave thought it was a solid YES, and Twilight fan Andrea gave it a WTF NO. Also, Jeremy Renner was not the lead in 28 Weeks Later. That film really didn’t have a lead.
00:46:12 – Pontypool
â€¢ James thought this movie was awesome and said YES. Dave’s response. Also, the Hitchcock film in question towards the end of the segment is called Lifeboat.
01:20:19 – Whatchaâ€™ Watchin?
â€¢ Baseball movie Sugar.
â€¢ Batman DVD Gotham Knight.
â€¢ The Haunting in Connecticut and its curse of animated movie posters on the Internet.
â€¢ James loves Crank: High Voltage. He’s totally gay for Jason Statham. I don’t think I’ve ever heard him so animated when talking about a film. He and Alex Billington are totally BFF’s now!
â€¢ We all saw Splinter, a white bread horror film that passes for something you’d have for lunch and then forget about.
â€¢ Dead Set, awesome-O zombie show from the UK.
â€¢ Andrea has been reading a book NOT by Stephanie Meyers! Christopher Moore’s Fool.
â€¢ Visioneers starring the current red hot Zack Galifianakis. This movie was released before he became The Hawtness and apparently he should be grateful for that.
â€¢ Long Weekend starring Mel Gibson’s Jesus. This movie was funded by Greenpeace and pitched with a Power Point presentation*.
â€¢ James was flipping channels, landed on The Disney Channel showing Lindsay Lohan in Labor Pains, and decided to watch it. This is his story.
â€¢ James can’t get into hamster watching, Andrea watched a pilot called Glee, and Dave thinks True Blood better have a good explanation for its insanity.
02:33:10 – Goodbyes
* – not really.
