PODCAST 125: Ouija & Thinner [The Bachman Affair]


Stephen King Month continues as Cory takes a look at Thinner. An adaptation of a King story from his "Bachman Years". Forest escapes King long enough to share his thoughts on another board game movie, Ouija.

The horror duo also cover a long awaited and much anticipated John Carpenter album Lost Themes. Cory gushes over Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Forest will be soon seeing The Tribe, a film that won't be released in the U.S. until 2015. All this and Canne's Film Festival goers can be dicks!

Interesting fact: The Dune board game was released in 1979, years before the David Lynch film. The game cover illustrates a sand worm that looks very similar to the film version. You could argue that the board game inspired the film.

The main problem with most movies based on board games is:
1. They base them off of shitty board games
2. Which is just about everything made by Hasbro, Milton Bradley, and Parker Bros.

The fact that Ouija made more than John Wick at the box office pisses me off.



By the way, I saw a movie that I think is about as fucked up as Salo and A Serbian Film, minus the raping. The Men Behind The Sun. The one thing that film has over the other two is that it's based on true events, which is all the more frightening once you see the epilogue.

And there's another film that you can try to force others to watch if they ever lose a bet against you. Fred: The Movie. Trust me when I say you do not want to see that film if you can help it. You only have to see the first 10 seconds of the film to know what I mean. That's not an exaggeration, 10 seconds into the film and I wanted to stop it. If you can last even 1 minute with this movie, you've already proven yourself tougher than 90% of the people out there.

It's also the worst film that John Cena has ever been in, which I find infinite pleasure in. So now whenever Cena decides to bitch about some bad movie The Rock was in, such as The Tooth Fairy, The Rock can always respond, "You were in Fred," and all future arguments would be null and void.

And yes, it is on Netflix, and no, you do not want that for a Netflix Movie Night. You will lose fans faster than slasher films lose sluts. It is, without a doubt, the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life, possibly even more-so than August Underground. You will find that everyone on letterboxd agrees.



Speaking of letterboxd, there's something out now that is taking the Internet by storm, which if you haven't seen, you should. It's only 11 minutes, and you need to see it the whole way through to understand why it's so popular:

Sorry about the long-ass comment, but when a movie drives me to the brink of insanity, I need to get it off my chest in the hopes I can get it out of my head.
