Geeky Topics Round Table Ep 5: Author politics, Kid characters, Bad movies, and Movie turn ons and offs

FandibleFeaturedFive Geeks and one Roundish Table. After another long hiatus, we return with even more of our thoughts into the internet ether. We talk about whether an authors politics should steer people away from their books, kid characters in movies, future D&D at the movies suggestions, and personal movie turn ons and offs.

    Kinda curious if Billy has seen the Marble Hornets youtube series. (horror and 1st person)

  2. Lance Park says:

    I love the “What makes/breaks a movie” part.
    Things that can make a movie for me, that I will watch no matter how bad:

    Robots fighting each other. Double fun if it’s big, giant robots. Nerdgasm if it’s big giant robots fighting big giant monsters. That’s the only thing that’s made the new Transformers movies watchable for me (especially #2.)

    Suggestions for movies:
    Sword & Sorcery
    Kull the Conqueror (Has Kevin Sorbo for EXTRA badness.)

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

    Just one question, are you using the term ‘liberal’ in the 1880-today or the classical Adam Smith sense? Because one of those categories has done some really scary stuff.

    P.s Whatever your politics keep up the good work.

    If you want to have too much zombies and boobs in the same movie Zombie Strippers! (exclamation point is part of the title) will do it. I do not recommend it what so ever.

    Oh and my sqick as far as movies goes is shaky cam. I physically can’t watch shaky cam.

  6. Barsher Da Barsher says:

    I… I’ve seen Zombie Strippers! And the funny thing is.. it was sort of clever. I mean, it was made to be so bad it was good, I think. I think some of the dialog was very clever.

    God I hope I’m thinking of the right movie and not endorsing a full on porno.

  7. Lucek says:

    @Barsher, No it was rated R (probably should have gotten NC17). Here’s the IMDB page on it.

    My point wasn’t against the It’s so bad it’s good part but that they turned the zombie knob and boob knob up to 11. And yeah too much. Much too much for this movie to carry in my opinion.

    Playing this by ear again:
    1. Fiction in and of itself, if it is worthwhile to read, is worthwhile to read. I want bad things to happen to Orson, and when asked about Randian fiction I will ask someone to take it at face value, but I do not want to keep a person from a good fiction just because I dislike the person so much.
    2. Dildoman is a guilty pleasure of mine.
    3. Scanners. Hellraiser. The Thing. From Dusk till Dawn.
    4. I love a career criminal film. Crime thrillers, heist films, pretty much anything of that sort, even crap like Takers.
    5. Rape. Rape is a special kind of evil that turns my guts backwards and forwards, I can survive it sometimes but the more contrived it becomes the more sickened I get. Bringing up the Hills Have Eyes is an example of a movie I despise for that alone.
    6. My favorite sex scene ever was RocknRolla. http://youtu.be/LfpjkO44Rc4
    7. I am usually the same for audio, I did give Fandible the benefit of the doubt.
    8. I have only ever seen one Korean movie where a happy ending kinda happened, and I was actually very disappointed since the first two movies in it were very Korean. The Despair trilogy. Mother thankfully made me exactly as depressed as I had wanted to be.

    Hi Fandible Crew,

    Might I suggest John Carpenter’s ‘Big Trouble in Little China’? And I’d also like the second the Willow and Sword and the Sorcerer suggestions.

    Have fun!

  10. Gabriel Sims says:

    Oh– and Buckaroo Bonzai! Where else will you find John Lithgow, Peter Weller and Jeff Goldblum (as a cowboy)? Start your Oscillation Overthrusters and set course for a compound full of dudes named John.

    And in case anyone is interested in hearing more about Billy’s relationship with Jason Segel’s man-meat, or Angela’s opinions on gratuituous movie boobage (or bubus, thank you Billy for coining that wonderful term) , check out the special sexxxy episode of A Couple of Geeks. “Yoo just want sumfin’ tittylatin’!” 😀

    Re: The cast of Fandible: The Movie, how about giving Chiké Okonkwo a chance to play Jésus Rodriguez?

    http://www.chikeokonkwo.com/Home.html

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiké_Okonkwo

    The likeness is pretty close, and even though he’s got a British accent, just get him some speech coaching and a pair of glasses, et voilá!

  12. Pencil-Monkey says:

    Passing on a movie recommendation from the good people at rpgmp3.com:

    Lifeforce (1985), which is a sci-fi movie about “shape-shifting alien space vampires who hitch a ride on a space shuttle to get to Earth and possess Captain Picard, AKA Patrick Stewart”. 😉

    Good episode

    And a game to suggest for you guys to eventually try. Little Fears is a great game
