Alex de la Iglesia is a Spaniard cult director that started in horror and who eventually made it big. I would compare him to Peter Jackson or Sam Raimi (minus the slapstick and over-the-top gore). I heartily reccommend 1995’s “The Day of the Beast” (“El Dia de la Bestia”), it’s probably his best film and it’s great, it’s a horror dark comedy. I seriously seriously seriously reccommend it, if anyone’s reading this at least go check it at IMDB or something and see if your interest gets piqued up.
space dollars 😀
I almost only watch foreign movies, cos every movie that isn’t Austrian is a foreign movie for me.
foreign films are only automatically better if they are asian.
I just noticed plinket had
a picture of mike on his curio cabinet
I stopped watching during the Komodo Dragon pit…What I liked about the Daniel Craig James Bonds is that its more realistic than the other films, This Bond feels like he could die, he isn’t invincible. I dont want to have another Pierce Brosnan Bond
How in the fuck did you end up leaving a comment about Skyfall on this unrelated episode that’s a year old?
You didn’t destroy the movie and Mike wasn’t there???
Is that time machine just the communication device from your 48 hour film “The Great Space Jam”?
Goddamn, I hate Bollywood movies…
In space dollars. Duh!
Just watched El Dia de la Bestia last night thanks to your awesome recommendation Astor! Highly enjoyable film.
I noticed that too. I kept hoping it would land on his eye.
For the curious, The Last Circus is currently on Netflix.
Why not time travel to when vcd repair was at its height? They would be rich!
I love how the fly videobombs the interview at 6.05.
Also: Wilhelm Scream at 3.51.
Because he was watching Skyfall and then this loaded in the Blip.tv player.
At 19:59… Is that Walter Sobchak?
You guys always nail the endings to these… Love it.
I saw Last Circus. The opening scene was awesome, but it just got crazy and stupid by the end. I kept asking myself why people would be helping these two insane clowns with machine guns, both missing most of their faces and obviously out of their minds.
It’s Space Plinkett!
I hope Mike and Jay were drunk when they saw Last Circus. Plotwise this movie was just so stupid. There was no sufficient reason for anything that happened in it. Just random batshit crazy stuff. I think someone was trying to make a deep psychological movie, but they had no idea of psychology or simply of how humans interact. The plot was being stretched so much it almost created plot holes. Just awful. In my mind I could see the director going “Let’s put this scene in there, because it looks artsy, dark and edgy.” And obviously not because it would contribute to the plot in any way.
And I know something about drunk movie watching. The first time I saw Black Swan while drunk, I thought it was very deep and meaningful. Then, when I rewatched it sober, well, it turned out not to be as good as I thought. Still, it was far much better than Last Circus.
I’m sorry, but this movie was so bad, and I get really pissed off when I see a bad movie. I just had to share my pain. Thank you for your attention.
It’s the language barrier, and worse the translations aren’t very accurate. Besides madness doesn’t have to make sense, that’s why it’s madness.
Holy shit it is
I believe I’m interested in The Last Circus.
I KNOW I’m interested in Robot and I have to find it.
Also: “I NO LONGER EXIIIIIIIIIIIST!!!!” is fucking awesome.
I can’t stand bollywood music video dance number movies. They’re terrible.
Edit: Also, when Mike says “It’s different” it totally feels like he and Jay are apologizing for the movie or giving it a break for being Indian. That’s reverse-racism. This is a bad movie. It deserves a spot on the Wheel of the Worst.
Have you seen it, though? At least watch the clips on Youtube. It’s amazingly hilarious. The movie isn’t entirely serious, and it’s a fun experience. Good to watch with friends.
It almost falls into ‘so bad it’s good’ territory, but it’s not really that bad. It’s just so admirable and lovable in how it does things.
Bollywood vocals are like nails on a chalkboard, every time they showed musical scenes from the movie, it was like jabbing an ice pick in my ear.
I feel like I’ve heard those closing lines before… I know! Man Being hit by football in the groin! Funnily enough that episode of the Simpsons also featured a Film Festival… Coincidence? … Yeah, probably…
maybe… or a homage…
Speaking of causality loops.
What if VCRs are so rare in the future because people from the future keep coming back and stealing them, thus removing them from the timeline until they reappear in the future?
You should do a different show just about foreign movies.
