“Uncle Kent 2” writer/star Kent Osborne

kents-humor-list“Uncle Kent 2” — “Adventure Time” writer Kent Osborne moonlights as a mumblecore leading man. With parts in “Hannah Takes the Stairs,” “Uncle Kent” and now it’s unlikely sequel, “Uncle Kent 2.” We talk to the star about making the niche cult classic and his other movie roles.

(HEY! BUY THAT “THE ROOM,” “LIFE DAY” OR “BREAKING BAD” UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATERS!)

“Hannah,”“Uncle Kent” and 1/8th of “Uncle Kent 2” were directed by Joe Swanberg. The rest of the movie was directed by Todd Rohal. Let’s hope for an Uncle Kent 3.

Buy the book and the movie!

The opinions expressed by my guests are strictly their opinion. So please don’t punch me in the face.

Go see it in the theaters this weekend at the Alamo Draft House in Brooklyn!

Here’s me on Kent’s cartoon “Cat Agent.”

“Beverly Hills Cop 3” Eddie Murphy

beverly-hills-cop-3Eddie Murphy takes the check and phones it in in this unnecessary follow up to an unnecessary follow up of “Beverly Hills Cop”! I chose this movie because my brother Mike Spiegelman is obsessed with it. He talks about it all the time. So he’s here to talk about why he loves it so much.

This is the third part of a three part #podcrawl! It started with “Hey, Do You Remember…?” reviewing “Beverly Hills Cop.” Then “Does it Have Legs?” took on “Beverly Hills Cop 2.” Now hear the conclusion – until there’s a BHC 4!

Check out other podcrawls with “Read it and Weep,” “The Flop House” and others.

Check out more great episodes with my brother Mike!

“Ninja 3: The Domination” with Todd Levin

More like the “Ninja 3: The Dumb-ination,” Am I right? Conan writer Todd Levin joins me to talk about great, great mess of a movie. We were going to watch some other movie, but Todd emails me that this movie is amazing and he was right!

We take down this Canon Classic!

About the lead actress Lucinda Dickey from IMDB:

Lucinda was par

ninja-iii-598x195

t of the troupe when Solid Gold’s third season began and a short biography of her was included in press materials for the show. However, her stint was very brief — so brief that most Solid Gold fans may not realize she actually danced on the show. Born and raised in Hutchinson, Kansas, Lucinda began dancing at the age of four and went on to major in dance at Kansas State University for two years. As a college student, Lucinda competed in the Miss Kansas pageant, where she won the talent division and finished third runner-up.

Lucinda then moved to Los Angeles and won a dance scholarship with the Dupree Dance Academy. After 10 months of study at Dupree, she auditioned for the movie Grease 2(1982) and won a role as one of the film’s lead dancers. Lucinda also appeared in the movie ninja III: The Domination (1984), where she played a woman possessed by the evil spirit of a ninja assassin. The movie role she is most famous for, however, is that of Kelly (aka Special K) in the 1984 cult film Breakin’ (1984) which also featured Solid Gold dancers Cooley Jackson and Leslie Cook.

Lucinda currently lives in California with her husband, Craig Pilligian (who is co-executive producer of the TV show “Survivor”) and their two children, according to a July 2000 Hutchinson News article.

Jerry Lewis Edited “Slapstick of Another Kind”

Jerry Lewis movie!

I did a full edited special “Proudly Resents” version of my guest appearance on Mike Spiegelman’s show. But I posted Mike’s full show. So, for completists, or people with not enough time to listen to the full version or too much time and can listen to both,,, Here’s my edited version. I took the time to edit it, so instead of replacing the one, I’ll post the other. Confused? It’s all perfectly natural. I’m crazy about the blonde. (cue theme) (“Bosom Buddies” reference.)

 

About the episode!

Mike Spiegelman had me on his podcast “Let’s Watch a Full Length Movie On YouTube” so I hi-jacked the audio and put together this episode. I’m sorry about the audio. It’s not great! But the content makes it worth putting up. So go to his show to hear the full show or to watch the movie along with us!

Jerry Lewis tried to cash in on the Sci Fi craze with his “comedy” with Madeline Kahn. “Slapstick of Another Kind” is the worst movie we’ve reviewed and we’ve reviewed “Hardly Working.”

Jerry Lewis’ comeback movie is today’s film.

Mike Spiegelman had me on his podcast “Let’s Watch a Full Length Movie On YouTube” Here’s a recording or it in full! Enjoy!

“Prison of the Dead” ft Dave Stone & Lisa Best

I went to Horrible Movie Night with a couple of microphones to watch “Prison of the Dead” and get some real time reactions. Comedians Dave Stone, Lisa Best and HMN co-producer Aaron Baker weigh in on this junk fest of a film.

Listen to a different format for the show. Let me know what you think!

 

ABout the film from IMDB:

Kristof, an eccentric rich kid, tricks his high school friends into getting back together for a reunion of sorts, under the pretense of a funeral. The group of twenty-somethings is forced to spend the night in an old abandoned witches’ prison. During a Ouija Board séance, th13613659_1405695266124151_9170109381611056322_oe schoolmates accidentally unearth three dead executioners from their graves. A little confused, and quite a bit angry, the Crypt Keepers initiate a killing spree that will only end when everyone is dead. Fortunately, the schoolmates all wore black. Too bad it’s for their own funerals… Written by ImortalKandy <imortalkandy@aol.com>

Review:

Holy sh*t?!?!?!? did I just pay 4 bucks to see this!?

Author: death280 from PA
24 July 2001

I will start off by saying this is indeed the worst film ever made.The story if you can call it that,is some guy that looks like he is straight off of beverly hills 90210 pretends he is dead and sets up a fake funeral at a castle.His friends show up and he gets up out of the coffin laughing.they get p***ed,and he tells them they can win a million bucks.All they have to do is find the “talon key”.So they all agree and hold a seance.One girl gets possesed by a cartoon wavy thingy and starts speaking latin.As it turns out the castle was an old witches prison and the cartoon thing was one of there spirits.This somehow wakes up three hunch back/executioners and they rise from there graves.and they repeat the scene of them getting out of the ground about 15 times.From then on everyone wanders around and a cartoon thing goes into their mouth and they just stand still and say “Sutra,Sutra,Sutra” then the 3 hunch backs come and the victim says “ah the executioners” then you see the weapons raise and a squirt of blood goes on the person.Then later when you see the bodies the wounds and blood have magically vanished!It doesnt remotely make sense however it is not as bad as bloodstorm.anywho the people just all get killed without resisting at all.It is the worst movie ever made avoid it at all cost.For anyone who has seen it I recomend flushing your eyes out with acid.And then there is the great quote “I never had sex with a zombie before,is this gonna hurt?”In closing I would like to say if I made this movie I would most likely put a bullet in my head.

 

 

LA Punk movie – “du Beat-e-o” director tells all

An incredible interview with a man who went from co-creating "Welcome Back, Kotter" to going deep into the LA Punk scene to making Disney Movies

The Runaways movie Joan Jett doesn’t want you to see.

 Alan SacksAlan Sacks co-created “Welcome Back, Kotter.” Alan Sacks gave John Travolta his big break. He produced films for the Disney Channel and the Jonas Brother. Most Recently, Alan Sacks managed the kid rock phenom ” .” But for me, he’s best known for the Ray Sharkey LA Punk Rock art house flick, duBeat-e-o.

On the podcast, Alan Sacks goes into great detail about his experience in the punk scene and what brought him there.

I talked to Alan Sacks and I brought up that I thought he was the manager of the kid heavy metal band, “Unlocking the Truth.” Alan immediately set me straight and let me know that he was let go. Alan’s options are his own. I know nothing of this situation. I invite the parents of the kids or the management to rebut what Alan said. But again, it’s his opinion. Not mine or the show’s.

Burt Dubrow – The Ringmaster of Daytime Talk

Before reality shows, there was something even crazier – Daytime Talk Shows. Burt Dubrow is the man behind some of the craziest moments on TV.

Everyone from Cher to “Lesbian Nuns” to  “Feuding Sisters,” appeared on Sally Jessy Raphael. It was Burt Dubrow who brought them all to daytime TV.  He discovered Sally Jessy Raphael and Jerry Springer. Not only did Burt live through the craziest period of TV, he helped create it.

Burt Dubrow talked to me from his office at his show, “Dr. Drew.” Burt serves as the EP of the HLN show. After our interview, Burt Dubrow took me on a tour of the set. It was originally just a desk and backdrop. Drew occupied one half of the set, while Piers Morgan had the other. When Peers went away, Burt drew on his old school talk days and added an audience that would join in on the conversation.
