Just listened to it. Here is my commentary:
Much the show can be summarized as "remember this?" Having not seen the movie, I don't remember any of those things, and, since I don't actually want to watch the movie, it would be nice if you went into a little more detail about it.
However, you seem immediately dismissive of just about every aspect of it. That fact begs the question of why I, the listener, would want to hear a podcast about something so unworthy of watching or that, as you say "cannot be talked about in a serious manner." You even state at one point that anyone who wanted to see the movie is "dumb" and "has absolutely no dignity." I would like to know the characters' actual names and roles in the story--e.g. who is "ghostly Asian bitch?" What was her significance to the action? Is she part of a coherent mythos?
Furthermore, you call this a "standard action movie," but I don't know what that means. What makes it "standard?" Whose standards do you adopt in order to assert that? What does it mean for the culture that produced the movie that certain qualities can be called "standard?" You use standard as a critical term, but criticism is a delicate affair requiring nearly constant definition and justification.
Most of all, I would like to hear more about the Kevin Bacon project of the podcast. You could reasonably just go to IMDB and figure out a path to Kevin Bacon, but there must be some significance to the content of the movies along the way. Perhaps you could find similarities in the different roles the connecting actors play. Maybe you could find some constancy in time or space.
If the second episode involves substantial changes, I might be interested. Also, make a quick wordpress site where I can go to get the whole catalog, even if you just link to youtube videos.
Thanks for putting in the time. You make a lot of good points about the podcast, most of which I think can be addressed by a more structured approach. We had an outline of how we wanted to discuss the different aspects of the film but it very quickly degenerated into a less controlled discussion. We were trying to showcase the interesting/fun aspects of the movie while also making fun of it but we may have gone too far toward dismissal. It was actually an enjoyable movie and I believe we recommended watching it at the end but we probably should have gone into more detail about what we liked about it.
The Kevin Bacon aspect was something we came up with during the pre-record so it's not fully fleshed out but I do feel like it's one of the more unique aspects of the show. I agree that we could easily map out a path to Mr.Bacon but I don't think that would add to the experience of the show, still it's something we should go over among ourselves as I'd really like it to be an important theme of the show as opposed to a prop we occasionally use. Thank you again for your diligence.
No one wants to listen to your immature ramblings.
To each his own man but I find it a little ironic that the duder saying that have almost 2400 posts on an internet forum. Also isn't most comedy immature by it's very nature? I'm actually inclined to take that as a compliment.
