In The Words Of Mike Cheese: “The True King Of New York, The Ol’ Dirty Bastard”

Posted in Uncategorized on September 19, 2012 by kissingcontest

Some dude got ahold of The ODB’s entire FBI file.  Excerpts published at Gawker, full thing here.  It’s obviously dry at parts because it’s 94 pages long and its written by the FBI, but it’s pretty awesome the dude bothered to file a Freedom Of Information Act request to get ahold of it.

Or you can just go the slightly lazier route and read the summary at Gawker, seeing as thats where I stole this from anyway.

Episode 104 Stuff

hey, if  you’ve listened to episode 104, are listening to episode 104, or just want a sample of what episode 104 is all about, here is some shit.

in case you havent seen it yet, here is the “trailer” for “the innocence of muslims” which still has people storming embassies and getting angry as fuck at…the united states? doesnt the overall poor quality of this tip them off that maybe they shouldnt be getting so upset? i dont know, my 2 cents:

here be some live footage from a performance of “jeff wayne’s musical version of war of the worlds” which is just as we suspected, super 70’s, and super prog-rocky. and of course it’s british:

and just so it’s not a spoiler, here are our entries for our favorite movie food, in link form.

“In this episode, Sawyer discusses why he gets raging hard-ons while creeping on girls on the subway.”

 

Now that Mike’s libelous slander is out of the way, what we actually talk about in Episode 103 is some movie news featuring some realllll embarrassing shit for Bruce Willis.  We follow that with our monthly movie preview, taking a peak at what will be hitting theaters in the month of October.  The episode is closed out with a Movie Hostage Extreme matchup of “Pajama Party” and “Vengeance.”

Sawyer’s Little “Chattin’ About Trailers” Corner Of Fun

Posted in Uncategorized on September 6, 2012 by kissingcontest

“This Must Be The Place”

This must be the movie that I truly thought was going to be dogshit but actually looks pretty incredible.  Ignore all the previous snark (included content on our show) and watch this.

 

 

“Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”

It’s cool that the other sexy lady that everyone forgot about from Quantum Of Solace cause she was out sexy-ed by sexy lady #1 is in a movie again.  Renner however, is straight fucking up.  I’ll be Producer Doan can’t wait to see this though!

 

 

“Stolen”

It’s also pretty cool that someone out there with some money decided a good thing to do would be to wait until Taken 2 was gonna come out and then release a totally stupid and halfass version.  This feels like the straight to DVD version that company Mike is always talking about would make, like Transmorphers.  Nicolas Cage is like the worst cheating lover ever who sometimes just makes you amazing strawberry rhubarb pie right after giving you the most amazing mouth screw ever.  So you want to never talk to him again, but you keep giving him a chance.  Fuck.

Oregon Duck Gangam Style Parody (for those that listened through end of Ep. 102)

Posted in Uncategorized on September 4, 2012 by kissingcontest

Gangam Style is the biggest song in the world right now.  We closed out Episode 102 with a version of it mashed up with a Nicki Minaj song.   I (Sawyer) chose said mashup because I knew it would annoy mike massively.  But the original song and video are incredible, if you haven’t seen it yet, you can do so HERE.

 

The Oregon duck made a pretty sweet parody video to pump everyone up on the coming year of COLLEGE SPORTS, and hey, there are Oregon cheerleaders in it too.  What more do you want.

Vegetarian Cannibal – Total False Advertising

Posted in Uncategorized on August 30, 2012 by kissingcontest

I’d really hoped this was going to be about some vegetarians that start eating people but no, it’s some Serbian Film shit but from a different country.  Mike’s ghoul boner is likely at half mast already.

-sawyer

From Twitchfilm:

http://twitchfilm.com/news/2012/08/croatias-vegetarian-cannibal-shocks-and-provokes.php

Laced with explicit sex, late term abortions and animal violence Branko Schmidt’s new Croatian effort Vegetarian Cannibalmay very well be this year’s A Serbian Film in terms of its willingness to push hot button topics to the extreme in the name of social commentary.

Cineuropa describes the story like this:

Dr Danko Babić (Rene Bitorajac) is a successful gynecologist in his mid-30s. Although clearly an expert in his field, he is an unscrupulously ambitious and utterly despicable person. Babić’s best friend is chief police inspector Ilija (Leon Lučev), with whom he takes part in sport-betting scams, and who leads him to ‘controversial businessman’ Jedinko (Emir Hadžihafizbegović). Jedinko deals in hard drugs and high-end prostitution (naturally, with police support), and needs a gynecologist to take care of his ’employees’, meaning doing illegal abortions for the pros. It all represents government, organized crime and corruption working hand-in-hand, typical of Croatian society.

A multiple award winner at the Pula Film Festival – where it took both best director and best actor prizes, among others – the trailer for this one is gritty, nasty stuff. Check it below.

Via Deadspin – RIP Tony Scott / I Too Love(d) “Enemy Of The State”

Posted in Uncategorized on August 21, 2012 by kissingcontest

Full article is copied below, or you can just go read it from the original Grierson & Leitch column over on Deadspin: http://deadspin.com/5936491/enemy-of-the-state-tony-scotts-best-film

-sawyer

“In the reaction to the sudden death of Tony Scott, a quick consensus emerged: Scott was a more interesting director than he’d been given credit for throughout his career; Top Gun and his general style helped usher in the age of Michael Bay and Olivier Megaton-ism; and the one movie everyone could agree had Legitimate Critical Value was True Romance.

And I love True Romance as much as anybody does. It’s one of those appreciated-much-more-two-decades-later films, largely because it’s remembered as a Quentin Tarantino-by-association project. (Funny how Natural Born Killers is now just an Oliver Stone joint, and everyone has decided to forget the Destiny Turns On the Radiolet’s-all-indulge-Tarantino-and-pretend-he-can-act period.)

But for my money, the great Tony Scott film is Enemy of the State: a huge Hollywood hit, a scathing (and prescient) critique of government’s prying into the lives of their citizens, and, oh, by the way, a story featuring one of the most iconic characters in American cinematic history.

That would be Edward Lyle, played by Gene Hackman in what is clearly, deliberately meant to be a version of his notorious Harry Caul of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 film The Conversation, one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s very possible that Scott meant this to literally be the same character; someone in the Enemy of the State calls Lyle “Harry,” and his hideout/audio lab is strikingly similar to the one in Coppola’s film.

This is a daring move, to borrow the antihero of an art film and make him the supporting character in your Will Smith action movie 25 years later. But it works, because in the two films are about the same thing: The knowledge that everything in your life is accessible to anyone (particularly a government) willing to look hard enough, and the belief that the only logical response is to hide yourself in a dark, soundproof room. And even that probably won’t work.

It’s an even more salient point today than it was in 1974 and 1998. Enemy of the State is about a lawyer (played by Smith right as he was taking off to become the biggest movie star on earth) who unwittingly comes into possession of a microchip containing proof that shady governmental folks murdered a senator (Jason Robards) who was voting against a bill that would give the government more surveillance powers. Smith ends up on the run, tracked by a team of young computer nerds (who are played by a consortium of up-and-comers including Jack Black, Jason Lee [Correction: Jason Lee played a victim of the NSA in the movie], and Jamie Kennedy).

Then Smith comes across Lyle/Caul, a former surveillance expert who helps him escape while dealing with his own fears and the sort of issues that will happen when you believe the government has been trying to kill you for almost three decades.

Scott’s film is far more whiz-bang than Coppola’s, but it taps into the paranoia almost as well as Coppola did, thanks to Scott’s inherent propensity for manic cross-cutting and hundreds of different angles, seemingly all at once. Whereas Coppola conveyed paranoia through silence and space, Scott makes it clear that at all times, from every possible perspective, you’re being watched. The way Scott shows Constant Surveillance is not all that different deom what I always sort of imagined was going on in Harry Caul’s mind in The Conversation: Outside was quiet, but inside was madness.

The film doesn’t make any formal attempts at being “cerebral”; that was pretty much the opposite of Scott’s bag. It’s a dead sprint. Yet it’s certainly smart, while being propulsively entertaining. It wasn’t Scott’s goal to make any sort of statement about The Way We Live Now, but if you gave him the proper pieces and let him do his thing, the result was more than the sum of its parts. Tony Scott could make movies, man. With the right material, he could even make them great.”
