  1. Yeah that was my dehumidifier!

    Before it’s any more irrelevant, Bryan, being that the worst movie accents of all time was one of my all time favorite episodes and that your number 1 Andy Rooney was brought up on the John Cho episode I thought I’d mention an experience I had only like 3 weeks ago. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan (second largest city in Michigan after Detroit) but have family up north in the wilderness. I went to see a cousins school play and at one point one of the actresses talked about going “incognito” by disguising herself as some kind of a famous character… she’s like “you know what would be perfect, that great chinaman character, like Andy Rooney”. I thought god no… no way are they going there… this is a high school play mind you! But sure enough in the next scene a character whose name is literally fucking “Chinawoman” is introduced, complete with buckteeth, slanty eye makeup and of course the accent. Her catchphrase: “Geh back to wahk!”. I sat with my 8 year old son intensely uncomfortable for the next hour, all those around me lauging and seemingly oblivious. So anyway this insanely racist stereotype is still alive and well in small town america.

    Great episode, love you guys!

    • Hello Meatman. First of all, allow me to point out that I’m Asian. I respectfully suggest that you listen to more of Adam’s podcasts. It might help you differentiate between racist acts and audacious jokes. Sheez, everyone these days gets offended too quickly. We need to get back to the days when the word “racist” is strictly reserved for a person who physically harms a black person while screaming the N word (or something comparable) rather than calling everyone racist for a silly squinty makeup and talking like Jacky Chan. That’s how we Asians fucking sound, okay?? We, or more accurately, our parents, sound funny and that’s the truth. If anyone imitates the accent, that is NOT racist! Is a white person speaking ebonics automatically labeled racist??

      Jesus fucking Christ

      • Hey there Dandy Man,
        I don’t want to put words in Bryans mouth, but that being said: it was Bryan who mentioned that he found the portrayal racist and offenisve in both the worst accents episode, and then repeated that he found it offensive in the John Cho episode. Listen to top 5 under 5 (last week’s episode) and skip to the 1 hour 34 minute mark. I was just agreeing that I found it offensive. IMO it seems the asian equivalent to blackface. Furthermore your thinking that an act has to be violent to be racist is bizarre to me. It seems so obvious that there are acts that are racist (denying a job, etc) that aren;t violent, don;t know what else to say about that.

        Anyway don’t get me wrong, I think the world would be a much better place if people could just laugh off ethnic stereotypes more often and not take them super seriously. To me though the Rooney performance is more than that. In the least it’s more than an accent; the play I saw had buckteeth but there were character/personality stereotypes as well. Same thing w/ Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which is like the historical asian stereotype.The main thing to me though is that this was a school play. Adam’s show (which I listen to daily) is one thing, a play put on by high schoolers is different.

        Bottom line it’s fine you don’t get offended by it but I think many justifiably would.

      • I’m Asian too and I don’t really find the accent that offensive if it is done reasonably. But, I agree with Meatman in that the eye makeup and the buckteeth is the equivalent of blackface. Also, the whole “Geh back to wahk” part is portraying a stereotype within the Asian community. It was an easy and unimaginative skit so it shouldn’t be taken that seriously. Overall, I would be nice for Asians to not be portrayed so negatively all the time but, there isn’t really any serious harm done.

      • I understand your points, guys. And I’m sure the majority of the population regardless of race share your sentiment. But does majority always equal ‘correct’? Hardly so. Blackface. Hmmm. How about Dave Chappelle’s white face? And the movie White Chicks? I’m sure there are many more examples but these are the most famous ones out there. I guess according to your moral standards, these actors/comedians (and all those who helped them execute those jokes) are (somewhat) racist.

        I also see your point that it’s probably inappropriate for a high school play. But buh-lieeeve me, high school or not, these are simply reflections of the views of the society. Behind closed doors, we hear and say racist jokes and comments all the fucking time. The question is — does this mean that we’re really racists? I strongly do not believe so. I’d say the vast majority of the people who make racist jokes and banters are not. Chances are, they’d help a person with a different skin color if a disaster ever happened. Like what I’ve said, we just need to go back to the days when the term racist is reserved for those who truly despise the other ethnicities. We all need to take the chill pill. We need to learn to co-exist without the fear of offending someone all the time; more importantly, to learn to not get offended over little things.

        Sadly, that’s a utopian society also possible in my head.

  4. I love the Southland Tales breakdown. I love it for that film for it’s scope, ambition, humor, and of course the ultimate “that guy” cast.

    Southland Tales poses the question, can you love and respect something even though it’s deeply flawed?

    YES! YOU CAN!!

    Please do a Southland Tales commentary.

  5. Anderson is getting married in SLO!!!! I went to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and here’s my request for you guys. For lunch one day in SLO, you MUST eat ate Firestone grill and order the Tri-tip sandwich. Order a side of fries (one side is enough for everyone) and you will not be disappointed. Other good places to eat are Gus’s for subs and Mondeo for huge wraps. Eat at these places and your mouth will thank you.

  6. I wonder how many of the movies on these lists the guys will actually see this summer. Last year wasn’t it dangerously close to 50%?

  7. KEITH David doesn’t request ass to ass. It was just a random guy at the orgy

  8. Sorry Anderson… Spiderman reboot is about Sony retaining film licensing rights (from Marvel) to the franchise, rather than just a lack of creative ideas:

    “most of these [Marvel to film studio] license agreements contain a clause which allows the rights to revert back to Marvel if the studio does not meet a deadline, by starting principal photography by a certain date or designated time period. This is exactly what happened with the Incredible Hulk, Universal made one movie about him that did not do so well. Therefore, Universal did not intend to make another Hulk movie and they missed the dates to start the next one, so Marvel got the rights back and came out with their own Incredible Hulk movie (this movie was way better, despite the change from Jennifer Connelly to Liv Tyler) (FN 53). Something similar happened in 1994 when Fox filmed a Fantastic Four movie, but they never actually released it, they only filmed it to ensure they retained the right to the heroes (the 1994 Fantastic Four movie is on youtube and is just as bad as the comic book movies Fox makes today). Fox is now revamping the Fantastic Four franchise and will be making a completely new movie with a new cast (which is a pity because Jessica Alba was an awesome Sue Storm). Fox is also doing this with the X-men movies, as their next movie (X-Men: First Class) will take the X-men back to their early years. Sony Pictures is doing the same thing with Spiderman, as their next film will take Peter Parker back to his high school years. ”

  9. “Toby Maguire sucks. Kirtsen Dunst sucks.”
    No, it’s not too soon to totally re-do that shitbag franchise. Also, I assume that Logan read the comics before those abortions were released in theaters. Maguire was NOTHING like Peter Parker– physically nor personality-wise, as Hugh Jackman is nothing like the comic Wolverine (though little shits who were toddlers when the first X Men movie was released think that he is perfect in the role).

    The comic Peter Parker/ Spider-man is a wise-cracking, brown-haired, street-savvy, ambiguously Jewish dude. Maguire played him as a naive dullard.
    Also, Kirsten Dunst looked abso-fucking-lutely ridiculous with her dyed read hair. They should have cast a natural redhead. The comic Mary Jane is like a female Peter Parker, yet Dunst played her in the same naive, slow-witted manner that Maguire played Peter Parker.

    The movies shat all over my two favorite teenage comic heroes (Wolvie and Spidey), and now Michael Bay is bent on ruining Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

  12. I’ve done my best to avoid EVERYTHING about Dark Knight Rises, Avengers, Prometheus, et al, thanks for keeping the show spoiler free.

    I need to hear Anderson’s review of Drive Angry!


    Posted by LFC | April 6, 2012, 4:59 AM
  13. NO! NO NO NO! BRYAN!?!? THREE STOOGES?! You’ve gotta be kidding. Bryan, the Three Stooges looks TERRIBLE. Bryan. How could you?

    You guys saved it with Prometheus. I was worried for a moment.
    I was also laughing out loud when Bryan forced Anderson to watch the Muppets.

    Very funny episode. I love you guys, easily my favorite movie podcast. Keep doing it for Van Gogh!
