Mom is Totally Fired.

Escape from LA is the Greatest Movie EVER, much to the chagrin of Dave and Joel over at Fast Karate for the Gentlemen.


2 Minutes, 4 Seconds In:

The name I was looking for here was “Lee Van Cleef”.


3 Minutes, 16 Seconds In:

Cuervo Jones, the villain of this picture. He’s into love and peace.


15 Minutes, 21 Seconds In:

I don’t care what Mom says, Pam Grier is all woman. Even when she’s technically a man.


17 Minutes, 34 Seconds In:

Mom is totally fired. But fear not, intrepid listeners, she’ll certainly be back. Only at greatly reduced pay…



“I don’t need no gun!”


That’s right, folks. Tune in soon to hear the Almighty Gooberzilla, Daryl Surat from AnimeWorldOrder, and the aforementioned Dave and Joel from Fast Karate for the Gentlemen tackle the transcendent glory of the Greatest GREATEST Movie EVER, Commando!

    Escape from LA is the best Metal Gear Solid ever!

  2. Steve Harrison says:

    “Come on, Bennet..use the knife…you know you want to…”

    Oh, wait, that’s the next one.

    I get to school the Gooberzilla!

    Um, Escape from L.A., the music was done by Shirley Walker *and* Carpenter.

    And while I am loath to discuss politics because logic is too often overwelmed by emotion, Fascism rides both side of the fence. You would NEVER have a Republican vote to ban red meat or smoking. It’s not conservetives who want to take away your french fries or chicken or potato chips or your right to drive whatever car YOU want to.

    And the Patriot Act was first put forth by the Dems. So there. I’m shutting up now πŸ™‚

    I found Escape from L.A. to just feel…tired. Like *everybody* got fed up with the constant “when ya gonna make this? huh? huh? huh?” questions.

    and without going into some of the basic illogic of the ending (such as, what, milspec hardward doesn’t have EMP shielding? Ours does currently…) I DO want to see another ‘Escape’ movie. Dunno where Snake would Escape FROM, but hey.

  3. Daryl Surat says:

    Escape From LA never really grabbed me, but perhaps it’s because I saw it at a time before I fully understand the jokes of comedy. Admittedly, John Carpenter is pretty much lost on me as a whole, since I think Ghosts of Mars is lame and Ice Cube in a movie equals me not wanting to see it. Could you explain perhaps why you chose this over Escape From NY? And is XXX 2: State of the Union the Greatest Movie EVER, or does it illustrate God’s simple truth, that Ice Cube is far less awesome than Vin Diesel, who “lives for this shit”?

    And the Patriot Act was first put forth by the Dems.

    The Patriot Act was written by Michael Chertoff and Viet Dinh, then James Sessenbrenner introduced the Patriot Act in the House. All of those guys are totally Republicans.

    And that Colorado smoking ban that was in the news last month? Mike May (Republican) sponsored that one, and the governor who signed it into law? Bill Owens…Republican. And the governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, who signed a state smoking ban into law a few months ago? Yeah, he’s Republican too. If fascism does ride both sides of the fence, it sure seems like it’s tipped over to one side for the better part of this decade.

  4. Gooberzilla says:

    In response to Steve’s schooling, I must admit that I am largely ignorant of politics, but the regime in Escape from LA had a friendly, distinctly Republican feel. πŸ™‚

    As for my reasons in choosing LA over New York, they are three-fold. Firstly, everyone already should know that Escape from New York is the Greatest Movie EVER; they shouldn’t need me to tell them that. But LA tends to slip steathily under the radar like a one-man, nuclear-powered submersible, so it becomes my duty to sing its praises long and loud.

    My second reason is that Dave and Joel were dissing on it not too long ago, and Dave and Joel hatin’ on John Carpenter becomes a powerful impetus for a podcast.

    Thirdly, Escape from LA is one of my mom’s favorite movies. After making her watch Stealth and the various Underworlds, I felt that I owed her one.

    As for Ice Cube, him appearing in a film tends to tip it heavily toward the Greatest category, as evidenced by both XXX: State of the Union and Anaconda, which I hope to Mom-cast at some time in the near future. Think of it this way: only Ice Cube is powerful enough to replace Vin Diesel.

    If only they had done the same thing in Chronicles of Riddick
