For the final show of the season Arden and another kung fu film! Though, Paul will argue that it’s not a kung fu movie, but a terribly long 80s music video. Either way, the guys are obviously having a fun time reviewing it. Oh, and there’s a single person in the chat room during the live show. It sounds sad to have only one person, but he’s one of the film’s stars! JOKE’S ON YOU, REST OF THE INTERNET.

It’s the 80s and we love shopping because it’s totally rad! The only thing better than going to the mall is working there! Like wow! In this episode Steve returns to help the guys review the robot morality tale, The Chopping Mall.
Tough one to find for streaming & the rights have passed back and forth between distributors. You can buy the DVD on Amazon if you wish.
For no reason whatsoever two characters from the film Eating Raoul are in the opening?
Wheel of Fish? No you don’t get a clip because we’ve already spoiled enough in these notes.
Trinidad Silva is amazing in this film. His character has an “animal kingdom” TV show on the public access station Al manages. Unfortunately, he died in a car accident before shooting ended and the film is dedicated to him.
“You get a drink from the fire hose!” That’s the iconic line and scene from this movie.
Sally wants more Weird Al movies. We found these interviews he did for the Nerdist network.
Where’s the commentary in streaming? If you’re interested you can find some commentary in films using VHX.tv to distribute digitally. David Cross’s new film Hits has an option to get bundled extras. Paul also mentions that iTunes has Extras available for some films as well.
Stay tuned after the ending theme song - we do some bonus talk about Weird Al trivia and copyright, as well as catch up with Sally’s adventures in up-cycling / recycling / repurposing goods through hand (not mine) crafting. And a double-bonus track at the very end, Paul talks with his daughter Evie just before the show starts.
Thanks for listening! And thanks for taking time to join us again, Sally! Up next, 1995’s Waterworld.
Look at all the amazing comedians in this 1968 film! Surely, it must be hilarious? You’re first clue that the assumption is wrong? We’re watching it for this podcast. Adjust your listening EQ settings on your audio device from pop to Carol Channing and have a listen to the episode.
No streaming of this steaming pile. Watch this film (at your own risk), on Amazon.
