Just when you thought there was nothing else to say about the Oscars, Jeff, as Chet Waterhouse, proves you right. Chet is the the co-host of the popular sports radio show “Chet & the Psycho Killer” (He wanted you to know he’s Chet.)Chet Waterhouse talks Oscars from a sports point of view. Chet looks and sounds like comedian Jeff Cesario from “Larry Sanders Show,” “Brand X” and “Jack Frost.”
The saddest Christmas song ever was made into the saddest Christmas movie ever. “The Christmas Shoes” stars Rob Lowe, Dorian Harewood, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, John Dunsworth (“The Trailer Park Boys”) and a fabulous pair of shoes. Listen to me and NPR’s Adam Felber (“Wait… Wait Don’t Tell Me”) via Skype from his backyard to talk about the this three hanky tearjerker and it’s sequel, “The Christmas Blessing.”
From IMDB.com: Two separate stories mesh – in the first, a young music teacher, Maggie Andrews, begins dying of a heart condition and her son Nathan tries to get a pair of Christmas shoes for her before she dies. In the second, lawyer Robert Layton and his wife Kate are slowly drifting apart and the matter comes to a head during Christmas when Kate takes over for Maggie for the school choir and declines a job in Robert’s firm. When Robert’s mother passes away, he begins to reconsider things and his and Nathan’s paths cross on Christmas Eve as Nathan tries to raise the money for the shoes and Robert tries to get a present for his daughter.

Andres duBouchet & Adam Felber are back reviewing the latest films, kicking butts and taking names. These two are not afraid to tell it like it is and take on big Hollywood. Read their reviews at AINTEVERYTHINGCOOL.YES.
Adam Felber and Andres Du Bouchet perform their classic “tough” movie reviewers from the “website” “Ain’t Everything Cool dot Yes!” They’ve done these characters a few times over the years on the podcast. Always funny.
Here are a couple of past reviews from “Ain’t Everything Cool Dot Yes”:
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.
After George Miller screened some footage at SXSW film festival. A man stood up and asked: “How the hell did you film that!?” That man was none other than director Robert Rodriguez.
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.
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.
Neil Breen’s (“Pass Thru”) second film is actually called “I Am Here….Now” (trailer below). It’s fantastic from the moment you notice the error in the title. In the title! This is a crazy movie. It opens with Jesu
not Jesus coming from outer space in a paper weight (yep) to stop corruption and literally lay with a prostitute. Also this movie has an environmental message. This is one of the crazier movies we’ve reviewed on this show. Judith Benezra (TV’s Chuck) and Adam Felber (Radio’s NPR) guest review and HATE this movie. I loved every second.
Watch the movie below.
Here’s the plot from the Neil Breen movie on IMDB –
“Disappointed by its creation, the almighty being that created Man arrives on Earth in a human form and interacts with various troubled, wicked and sinful people on his journey to Vegas.”
APM’s Rico Gagliano & NPR’s Adam Felber join us to discuss the movie “Rocky IV.” The movie was the height of the cold war craziness that swept our country in the 80’s. Did Stalone begin the jingoism with “Rambo 2” and continue it the fourth Rocky?
Felber tells us what ‘s like to be in a bubble on Bill Maher. Gagliano gives us the behind the scenes of his new radio show “The Dinner Party.” We find out Dolph Lundgren’s dirty litter secret (He’s smart). Also host Adam Spiegelman reveals his very strange teenage crush.
Listen to the show on the website or go to Stitcher or iTunes.
Here’s Rocky’s inane speech at the end of the movie.
Writer/director Paul Sullivan, NPR’s Adam Felber (“Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me”) & I recap “Quigley.” You know the movie where Gary Busey plays a mean computer game business type guy who is turned into a dog. As a dog, Gary learns about life, flimsy sets, terrible special effect, non-comedic timing and how to sleep through a role. “Quigley” also features Booger, Patrick from “SpongeBob,” Christopher Atkins, the black guy from “Dream On” (he’s also the guy from “The Parkers”). Anthony Perkins’ son plays it straight as a fallen angel. The movie has everything: bad sets, bad lines and even a crew member walking in front of a camera. To be fair, it could just be a pushy extra who likes to wear vests and carry lights. All these elements make a very fun film.
Sullivan talks about directing his low-budget comedy “I’ll Believe You,” and how he almost got comedian Chris Elliott eaten by an alligator.
Here are some choice clips of “Quigley.” It’s from the “Found Footage Festival.” I don’t know what’s “found” about it. Did they “find” it in a bargain bin? Anyway, thanks for editing this for me to “borrow.” I have just started the “Borrowed Clip Fest.”
