Proudly Resents Room Episodes:
Recorded live at the Improv Lab in Hollywood, CA.The war on the war on Christmas continues! For Saving Christmas Kirk Cameron grabbed a camcorder and a bunch of college students and did their best to fill 80 minutes. It’s a variety show of sermons, backwards logic, mumbo jumbo and “comedy.”
Kirk puts his name upfront on “Saving Christmas” like a Tyler Perry movie, just a lot less plot.
Full disclosure, there were three people in the audience and four people on stage. I never planned on selling out the place, in fact that was three more people than I expected to show up. There was my friend John Santry. He’s game for anything though.
I, Host Adam Spiegelman, was standing outside the Improv comedy club with Jimmy Pardo waiting for Sharon Houston, when two women in their late 20’s got out of an Uber. I thought, “Oh crap. I hope they aren’t coming to my show.” They were. They were day drinking and saw the live “Saving Christmas” online. I just felt pressure all of a sudden to perform for two drunks. But they were very nice and of course we ended up talking to them.

Boiler Room, the Vin Deisel/Ben Affleck sausage fest, is proudly resented by Shawn Marek (Sideshow Network hot shot). We talk about the movie, lots of nerd stuff, the best Batman show on TV and Shawn and I compare telemarketing stories.
I can’t remember the book where I read the interview with the director of this movie. I know I told you to come to the show notes for them. I ain’t got it. So sue me. (Please don’t, it will be a huge waste of both our times.) Read More »
Dan Miles brings two films with him. He proudly presents his favorite movie, Christopher Guest’s “The Big Picture” and proudly resents his least favorite, “Bamboozled.”
“Mr. Robot’s” Christian Slater is a skate punk who doesn’t give a crap! It’s like Repo Man without without the quality.
Adam Sandler shoe horns a all of his bad film retreads and puts them through the NYC Indie Filmlook. Mike Spiegelman (best known as “Spiegs’ brother”) takes the movie and steps all over it.
Links from the show:
Writer, director and podcaster, Paul Sullivan comes to give us the three (plus bonuses) worst baseball movies ever. Paul is the host of the daily baseball podcast, “Sully Baseball.” That show is going to hit episode #1,000 real soon.
So I invited him on to talk about the nation’s two favorite past times, baseball and listening to Sully’s podcast. I mean movies. As Paul points out, the list of the best BB movies are usually the same. SO he picks films that didn’t quite knock it out of the park (get it?)
I’ve seen most of the films Paul’s talking about. Which doesn’t make a lot of sense, since I HATE watching baseball games. I like going live. That’s an event. But watching on TV or as my dad did, listen on the radio, never made sense to me. Like I tell Paul, when people start talking sports, they might as well be speaking Chinese. Not at all fun.
This is a great list of bad baseball movies. Plus we go off and talk about other things. Vin Diesel going “full Steve Segal,” good and bad Albert Brooks, Marc Maron’s search for your “guys,” how we met, Paul’s Holocaust denial and Paul’s Holocaust denial, denial.
Sorry France, this Jerry Lewis clunker is le marde. My big Bro Mike Spiegelman and I review the film our mom would not let us see when it came out in the theater.
Check out Mike’s funny joke book. Discount for listeners (and you!).
A couple of things I forgot:
If this is supposed to be for kids, why is Jerry Lewis at a strip club? Is it for kids who like a good scotch and can take a punch?
Mad Max: Fury Road is out and we saw it! Adam Felber (NPR) and Todd Levin (Conan) join me in their review.
“Mad Max:Fury Road” stars Tom Hardy, and Nicholas Hoult.
Todd and I record in a sketchy alley behind Sunset and Curson. Right near Meltdown Comics where you can watch “Horrible Movie Night.”
n a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, two rebels just might be able to restore order: Max, a man of action and of few words, and Furiosa, a woman of action who is looking to make it back to her childhood homeland.
Instead of the reboot being a remake of Mad Max (1979), revealing how Max Rockantasky became The Road Warrior. George Miller decided that the reboot will take place in the post-apocalyptic Australia, years after the new Max (Tom Hardy) lost his family, because he did not wish to do a remake or retell the story that had already been told and had wanted to update the universe and the wasteland and wanted new moviegoers to remember Max as a man with nothing to lose after losing his family.
Over 80% of the effects seen in the film are real practical effects, stunts, make-up and sets. CGI was used sparingly. Mainly to enhance the Namibian landscape, remove stunt rigging. Also for Charlize Theron‘s left hand which in the film is a prosthetic arm.
BIG SEQUEL NEWS! FROM AV CLUB “Mad Max Fury Road”!
In the week’s most expertly timed announcement, director George Miller has let Twitch know that he’s shooting not one but two Mad Max films back to back. With an eye on “rapid release.” It’s a reboot of the post-apocalyptic franchise that laid the foundation for Mel Gibson’s eventual rise to the top of the fellatio-demanding food chain. It will star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, and pick up shortly after the events of 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Miller says the next film and its sequel will be titled Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa, respectively, which suggests the second part will find Max traversing the wasteland in a sporty Italian hatchback.
Ritch Duncan, werewolf expert, joins me to recap the Canadian cult classic Werewolf movie “WolfCop.”
If you like alcoholic werewolves, exploding private parts and endless amount of bad guys, but don’t want to use more than 76 minutes of your time, then this movie is for you.
Ritchie and I take apart the Canadian wolffest.
Ritchie is a real werewolf expert. He co-wrote (let’s be honest, “wrote”) The Werewolf’s Guide to Life: A Manual for the Newly Bitten with Bob Powers. So if you’re feeling furry, buy their book.
