Mighty Movie's Temple of Bad: A TALKING CAT!?!

(Right click the image to save this episode to your computer)

We have to be clear about this: There are bad movies; there are reprehensible movies; there are movies that make you consider taking out a contract on the entire DGA, just to be sure that never in the future of humankind will there be a chance that such an affront to common decency could again be committed. And then there are films that are a strangely exhilarating kind of awful, the kind that actually restore your faith in the perverse diversity of the human race, that re-instill your wonder in the awesome chaos of the universe, that, as the slogan for Temple of Bad has it, are truly a religious experience. Such a film is A TALKING CAT!?! A putative family comedy that isn’t funny (at least not in a deliberate way) and that would likely rupture any family unfortunate enough to be exposed to it, this film starts with the premise that people would listen to a cat that dispenses cryptic directives in the voice of Eric Roberts, and then throws such niceties as narrative coherence, plausible characterization, decent production values, and commonsense behavior out the window in its attempt to fill its scant eighty-five minutes with something that justifies its existence.

The Temple of Bad team of Andrea Lipinski, Orenthal V. Hawkins, Kevin Lauderdale and Dan Persons get together to try to puzzle out some method behind A TALKING CAT!?!’s madness (spoiler: they don’t succeed). Click on the player to hear the show.

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THIS EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Aired October 5/6, 1966

Ma Parker has made a name for herself throughout the United States as one of the most difficult to capture criminals. When she sets her sights on Gotham City, it doesn't take the Dynamic Duo long to round her and her "boys" up, deposting them in Gotham State Penitentiary. In fact, it seems a little too easy. What is her grand scheme and will Batman figure it out?

Joining John to talk about mother of all villains is HG World's Jay Smith.

The HTD Express: #10 - Remembering Joan Rivers: An Interview With Talia Harari

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"Time for Episode 10 of the Handsome Timmy D Express and this week I welcome Talia Harari who’s worn many hats in the world of reality television. However, this week we talk mostly about her experience in the world of comedy as she’s been doing stand-up in the Los Angeles area for 4 years now.

Talia takes us step by step through the process of coming up with material and the terrifying last few moments before walking on stage to make strangers laugh. She tells us about the rush of making a crowd laugh and those terrible nights when they don’t. And we revisit the topic of challenges facing women in comedy – and entertainment in general.

Also, Talia goes into great detail about working on set with Joan Rivers who recently passed making the world a lot less funny. This episode, I think, serves as a fitting tribute to a comedy icon especially because this contains some very not safe for work language so put the kids to bed, it’s time for Talia Harari on the Handsome Timmy D Express…"

Mighty Movie Podcast: Richard Lewis Talks RICHARD LEWIS: BUNDLE OF NERVES

(Right click the image to save this episode to your computer)

You'll hear it in the show, and I'm not going to hide it: I was kinda intimidated talking to Richard Lewis. A brilliant comedian with a lightning-fast mind, Lewis has bested interviewers with far more supple intellects than yours truly. To add to my anxiety, I went into the discussion having watched DRUNKS, the 1995 feature film in which Lewis reveals a rarely seen facility for soul-searing drama. Fully aware of his range and his skill, I knew this discussion was going to be working at a wholly different level than my typical, cozy little chats.
And, bless him, Lewis was great. Our conversation focuses on RICHARD LEWIS: BUNDLE OF NERVES -- a just-released two-disc set that includes DRUNKS, as well his acting debut, DIARY OF A YOUNG COMIC, a new-to-DVD HBO special, MAGICAL MISERY TOUR, and a bonus, documentary feature, HOUSE OF A LIFETIME. In the course of the conversation, Lewis discusses his inspirations, explores his ambitions, and just in passing points out that the host of a certain, film-centric podcast shouldn't presume that everything can be filtered through the wisdom of Cahiers du Cinema.

On the latest episode of Presenting the Transcription Feature you meet the strange being who knows many things, for he walks by night and knows many strange tales hidden in the hearts of men and women:  The Whistler.  This anthology suspense show “starred” a narrator / Greek chorus, who sometimes mocked, and sometimes encouraged, the criminals in the tales he told.  Then it’s time to see if you have the proper education to survive life in the 1940s with Information Please.  This episode of the venerable quiz show seems to have a few more political questions than usual—probably because the U.S. was just months away from joining the Allied forces in World War II.

Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: THE GIVER & TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

(RIGHT CLICK IMAGE TO SAVE REVIEW TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Dan Persons says,

"I had my concerns about The Giver, another, teen-oriented film from the Weinstein Company. After all, TWC’s previous effort in this arena was Vampire Academy, and that blatant mish-mosh of Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, and whatever else has been luring adolescent females to the theaters didn’t go down too smoothly.

Serving as definite counter-balance to my trepidations: the presence at the helm of  Phillip Noyce, a very good director who becomes even better when telling tales of people finding the inner resources to confront near-insurmountable, social challenges. Turns out my faith was not ill-founded. Right-click the image to download."


(RIGHT CLICK IMAGE TO SAVE REVIEW TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Dan Persons says,

"TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES got nothing to worry about. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES doing quite well, thank you very much. Got the big-budget, Michael Bay treatment (he’s the producer on this one; Jonathan Liebesman directed); came in #1 at the box office this past weekend; has the almost inevitable sequel already in the works. Yup, life is good for TMNT. Unless, of course, the attending audience happened to see GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY last week. In which case, there might have been quite a few people coming out of the theater thinking, Nice try, but it doesn’t quite cut it.

In two weeks, we’ve had two films that want nothing more than to entertain us with some adrenaline-packed, fantastic storytelling. How each goes about the task, and how successful each is, says a lot about the filmmakers, how they regard this genre, and what they think of their audience. I explore the issue a bit in my review of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES for Jim Freund’s HOUR OF THE WOLF. Right-click the image to download."

The CFQ Interview: THE WALKING DEAD's Greg Nicotero

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Dan Persons says:

Sometimes doing the job is reward in itself. That’s what it was like for me to talk with Greg Nicotero. From DAWN OF THE DEAD to BREAKING BAD, from ARMY OF DARKNESS to OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, from HOSTEL to SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, his vivid and creative makeup effects work has brought the fantastic, the grotesque, and the sometimes-just-plain-realistic to a dazzling kaleidoscope of film and TV projects.

That includes THE WALKING DEAD, the blockbuster TV series which scooped up a couple of primetime Emmy awards for Nicotero’s work in bringing the flesh-hungry walkers to gruesome… uh, life? Death? Anyway, in honor of the release of the complete fourth season on DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, we got some time with Greg to talk about the finer points of zombie nurturing and care.
