At the Worst Show on the Web we pride ourselves on our superior intellect. Superior to what we have yet to determine, but we think we are fairly smart guys. So tonight, since we don't have a scheduled guest, we are going to try something a little different. Inane facts! We are going to try to stump each other with inane facts and useless trivia. Did you know that the plastic thing on the ends of a shoelace are called "aglets"? Well, now you do.
Bringing you the absolute worst in quality information, guaranteed!
If you don't know what the "Westboro Baptist Church" is, you have been living under a rock. It is the fundamentalist Christian "Church" whose members picket the funerals of soldiers (among others). If you don't know who Brick Stone is, you are in luck. Brick (or more precisely comedian Dave Sirus, who plays Brick Stone,) will be our guest tonight. We will be talking about his personal experiences which include, among other things, trying to engage the Westboro church members in comedic discourse during many of their protests.
In the words of Harry Callahan, "A man's got to know his limitations", and in this case director Sam Raimi knew his going into this project of creating a prequel to one of the most beloved children's movies of all times. The fact that Warner Bros (who owns the rights to the 1939 movie) put the kibosh on all of Raimi's idea's about pulling stuff from the movie, didn't help matters much either...
Plagued by problems since 2009 (and at a reported cost of 189 million,) this fantasy for adults, directed by Bryan Singer, hopes to be another winner in the recent string of fairy tales movies come to life, and by the looks of this one, it certainly tried the hardest.
Join us as we do what we've never done before... a wrap up of the Academy Awards. If you're like Jon and living under a rock, then you'll learn who won what, who wore what, and who the host was. Bringing you the absolute worst in Oscar coverage and web talk radio... guaranteed!
Well, it's Oscar season...again....and who am I to neglect my Cinamatic Oath to the movie industry? Yes, it's time for my Oscar predictions! (cue the thunderous applause!) Sunday will tell the tale with Seth "Family Guy" MacFarlane hosting (and won't THAT be interesting!), so without further delay, here are my predictions for who will win a genitalia-free statue this year:
2007 is that last time we found our hero, NYC detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) risking his neck in some ridiculous and ultimately foolhardy attempt to stop bad guys from doing whatever the bad guys where doing.
In 2002, director Eytan Fox brought us “Yossi & Jagger, ” a film simply described as “a gay love story between two Israeli soldiers.” It packed a lot of emotion and feeling in a scant 65 minutes. If you haven’t seen that film, please do – and stop reading this review as there are major spoilers to that film contained herein.
Review - I Don't Remember Hearing the *F* Word When Mom Read Me a Grimm's Fairy Tale... ("Hansel and Gretel" et al.)Submitted by Show Guest Critic on Mon, 02/11/2013 - 14:25
This ain't your momma's bedtime fairy tale with Hansel and Gretel leaving a trail of bread crumbs to find their way home after their father abandons them in the forest. Written and directed by Tommy Wirkola (whose previous film "Dead Snow " which was about thawed Nazi zombies!) is again shot in and around Germany.
