What is your Guilty Pleasure Movie? — Part-Time Characters

Tilda Swinton

The One that Makes NO Sense- This week, Bridget, Sam and Adonis get together to confess the terrible movies they secretly like to watch. However, what you are going to hear is a lot of talk about animals. Seriously. From the Jungle Book vultures to Bridget’s spirit animal to a bird who makes a constant and not-so-subtle appearance in the episode.

Somewhere along the way, you will find a tangent about War for the Planet of the Apes and their lukewarm feelings towards it. So if you like to hear us talk for a whole hour without any real structure but a lot of funny statements, this is the episode for you!

Also… can you guess Sam’s biggest guilty pleasure movie? Hint: it is super-hero related.

Question of the Week: What is your favorite guilty pleasure movie?

SHOW NOTES

Seriously, there are no show notes I can give you that will guide you clearly through this episode. You are going to have to commit and trust this journey will take you somewhere exciting, the same way Dave trusted the vortex of colored light at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments and Sam will read them next week. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook so you can send us direct messages and get podcast updates.

  1. I’ll list a couple guilty pleasure movies because I really don’t have a favorite. An honorable mention to the Power Rangers movie. It’s an honorable mention mainly because I actually think its a good B movie for the first two acts and goes down to a B- with a weak third act. I like to describe it as my Suicide Squad, in the sense that for some reason a lot of people enjoyed that film for some reason. My first guilty pleasure movie is The Bee Movie. Disclaimer, I liked this before it became a dumb meme. For some reason I really enjoy watching a bee voiced by Jerry Seinfeld. I find it hilarious. My second goes to Batman V Superman, the extended cut at least. It fixed Superman as a character and it fixed some plot holes in the film and I enjoy it. My last one would have to be Grown Ups. It’s such a stupid Adam Sandler movie, but I laughed a lot. Maybe it’s the idiot teenager in me. Who knows. Also I didn’t have a chance the comment but I prefer noodles Adonis. Your welcome.

  2. I have two guilty pleasure movies. My first is Suicide Squad. I liked the movie, and thought it was pretty good, but it wasn’t very popular. My other one is Land of the Lost. It’s a movie with Will Ferrell, and is a comedy. I thought it was really funny, and was laughing all the way through, but it has a low rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Also, for the question Adonis posed a few weeks back, I prefer rice.

  3. From Last Week:

    Worst Nolan Movie: Easily Dark Knight Failing. It exposed that Nolan didn’t know Batman other than a few arcs. He did good job taking a lot of Year One and coming up with Batman Begins, some odd things like combining Ducard and Ra’s Al Ghul together, but it all really minor, and even though I prefer Year One, Begins was awesome. This, however, he tried to combine Knightfall with DKR and failed at both. This, this was just not Batman, and too many things in the premise and plot just did not make sense.

    Best Nolan Movie: Inception. This movie was brilliant, because that’s exactly what Nolan did with everyone, he made the audience think the movie was about dreams, the meaning of dreams, is the top still spinning, all while none of that was important, Nolan was making a metaphorical movie about movie making:
    Leo was the director/writer planning the strategy
    Hardy was the actor playing roles
    Ellen Page was the set designer/special effects setting up how the dreams would look
    JGL was the producer taking care of the logistics
    Ken Watanabe was the studio/executive producer taking care of the finances
    Middle Eastern guy was movie theater owner putting you in a state where you could immerse yourself
    Cillian Murphy was the audience
    Dreaming was the experience of going to the movies to escape reality
    The inception was the message the movie is trying to tell
    It did all that, and in a very entertaining way. Just brilliant.

    Dunkirk was great, but I think much of it is depending on how you experience it. Like seeing it in the IMAX is awesome because you become completely immersed and almost feel what someone there would feel. However, if you saw this on a flat panel, it would be more of an average to good movie, probably similar to something like Tora! Tora! Tora!

    From This Week:

    Guilty pleasures is a hard thing for me to define, because I can usually like any type of movie when the goal of movie is accomplished if that makes sense, especially when a movie is self-aware. I guess maybe like Versus movies, because who doesn’t ask “who would win in a fight between X and Y?”, so like Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman, King Kong Vs Godzilla (really most Godzilla movies), and the best one: Freddy Vs Jason, yeah the story was completely stupid and garbage, but those fights between Freddy Vs Jason were so badass it made the movie awesome.
