Episode 37 we are all over the place. Just look at the keywords if you don’t believe me.. One thing is for sure, Halloween isn’t over until you listen to this. Not really, but I’ve always wanted to use that stupid line.

I think I’ve figured out why I like old movies and b-movies more than I do most mainstream modern film releases.
All these years I’ve blamed everything from CGI and crappy story lines, to over-commercialization and modern acting preferences.
When it comes down to it, the problem lies within structure of the films themselves.
The things I can point to in classic films that I enjoy, are similar to the things I often find myself pointing out as values I appreciate in modern films when I see them.
Generally, the movies I like don’t have a lot of action in them, unless of course we’re talking about highly-choreographed kung-fu where a student has to whip his master’s ass, or in some instances blaxploitatoin where the man has to be taught a lesson, but most frequently the low budgets of the films I like come into play and zap them of any real action sequences.
The sets are minimalistic, basic, and neatly contained.
For example, I love Reservoir Dogs.
It has a little action in it, a few basic set locations that dominate the film, and its heavy with narration, which brings me to my other frequent love of classic films over most modern releases – dialogue.
I like a wordy movie. I think in words. They flow through my mind all day long, so I can relate to things that are expressed in words far better than I can relate to things that fly past the screen at 100 miles per hour with automatic weapons sticking from the windows firing in all directions. I’m happiest watching a Woody Allen movie, Kevin Smith movie, or some other director/writer often accused of being a little wordy, like Quentin Tarantino or someone like that.
Words are the language of the mind.
Don’t believe me?
Think about something right now.
Lee suggested that we talk about Quentin Tarantino-t and his influence or if it is actually a lack of.. So that’s fun. Jeremy, Roxy, and Lee also discuss Jenny McCarthy’s not so mean comments about Jim Carrey on Howard Stern, TMZ and their inappropriate article on Clive Barker and TV shows that make us laugh and/or cry.
Weird episode title, but it makes sense after you listen. Lee, Roxy, and Jeremy talk about guy flicks and what makes a guy flick a guy flick. guy flick. We also bring up some nude photo scandals from the past week… or three. Find out who is the most manliest manly man man on the show NOW!
