“It’s A Wonderful Life” & History of Laemmle Theaters

“It’s A Wonderful Life” & History of Laemmle Theaters

“‘Bad’ Did you say? I can’t hear you on account of my trick ear. I thought you said my movie was bad.”

Film blogger and bad movie expert, Sherilyn Connelly, bashes the holiest of holy, “It’s a Wonderful Life. Here’s Sherilyn’s review of her own appearance:

“The Proudly Resents interview is up. If you listen closely, you can hear me waving my arms around as I extemporized like mad. I thought we were going to be talking more about the philosophy of Bad Movie Night and showing It’s a Wonderful Life, and I wasn’t expecting to have to come up with jokes on the spot about specific elements. Oh well. Still turned out okay.”

That’s pretty on the nose, but you should listen anyway!

Then a separate conversation with the owner of the Laemmle Theater chain in LA. They broke such films as “Swingers” and it was the first place to show “The Room” at midnight. But first, a bonus Chris Gore clip. Chris tells us how he gets dirty words past the censors on his G4 show, “Attack of the Show.”

 

The Tommy Wiseau Interview!

Tommy Wiseau interview!

This Tommy Wiseau interview was mostly him promoting his new web series. Which is fine. It’s a funny interview.  You can watch his show below.  Tommy won’t answer any of the questions about the movie. He would only promote this terrible show about playing video games. So I asked him his favorite games and he wouldn’t tell me. I finally just started and ended each sentence by plugging his book. Then I gave him a big compliment and he turned around.

If you are looking for an interview with Tommy Wiseau that will explain the film, good luck finding one. This interview is pure Tommy fun. If you listen carefully enough, you can hear my head explode.

“The Room” Fan Fiction

“The Room” Fan Fiction

Every “The Room” fan knows that one thing Tommy will not talk about his home country. He wants to keep that a mystery. Also mysterious? The man behind the unofficial prequel to “The Room” called  “The Dingy Apartment.” Yes, “The Room” has fan fiction.

The webpage describes the prequel as:
For all that The Room accomplishes, perhaps its most compelling achievement is the sprawling mythos it evokes. So many past events are alluded to but never revealed. Why didn’t the YMCA cash Johnny’s check? How did Denny get involved with Chris-R? Why won’t Peter go to the Bay To Breakers marathon this year?
Where did Johnny get his accent from? And does nobody have a last name?Read More

"Nail Gun Massacre"

“Nail Gun Massacre”

“Nail Gun Massacre” It’s “Nail Gun Massacre” a very fun slasher film where the killer dishes out bad one liners and nail influenced death. Todd Levin (“Conan”) and Adam Spiegelman (Proudly  Resents) talk about this great bad movie and what the Sklar Brothers would be like as mass murders.

Look out! Nails! These nails will get you just by going in your hands.

Clips of “Nail Gun Massacre” were taken out of the show b/c the NGM people pulled down other sites that played clips. But I was able to get the ending of “Nail Gun Massacre” off youtube. It’s not in English, but it wouldn’t make any more sense if it was.

Here’s Todd Levin talking about Todd Levin. By Todd Levin:
