“Mr. Saturday Night” w/ @AdamFelber

EBilly Crystal, co-wrote, directed, starred and conducted his own Oscar campaign for this movie “Mr. Saturday Night.” It’s about a comedian who steals everyone’s Jackie’s jokes and ends up wearing really bad make up that’s supposed to make you look old. Adam Felber (Wait… Wait… Don’t Tell Me and an alleged podcast with Paula Poundstone) and I dig deep into our love for Billy Crystal and why this film didn’t work for us. Click here to see Felber’s shirt selections Hear more reviews from Felber Hear Nicko and I review “Parental Guidance” Below are photos from “Mr. Saturday Night.” Given his success in the early days of television, you’d think that Buddy Young Jr. (Billy Crystal) would be coasting happily into retirement alongside his wife, Elaine (Julie Warner). Instead, Buddy is an acerbic blowhard who alienates his brother, Stan (David Paymer), and everyone else who fails to bow to his bullying. His agent, Annie Wells (Helen Hunt), has positioned elderly Buddy for a big movie role, but his irreverence might come back to bite him one last time. Nominations:Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role Jump toAwards·Paymer was nominated in 1992 for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance. At the Golden Globe Awards, Paymer was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture and Crystal was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

@AdamFelber & @DuBouchet Review Movies

EAdam Felber and Andres Du Bouchet perform their classic “tough” movie reviewers from the “website” “Ain’t Everything Cool dot Yes!” They’ve done these characters a few times over the years on the podcast. Always funny. Here are a couple of past reviews from “Ain’t Everything Cool Dot Yes”: Here and here I produced a live comedy show with Adam Felber and Andres Du Bouchet. We’re doing it again in January. If you’re in LA, let me know. Here’s info on the show Giant Tuesday Night of Amazing Inventions and Also There is a Game’s 15th Annual Holiday Special! Francisco Guglioni (CONAN writer/performer Andres du Bouchet) is a fictional character, and he knows it. Armed with nothing more than a vague “sketch comedy accent”, and the most minimal of backstories, he has been entertaining crowds here in the states for 15 years with his extravaganza ‘Giant Tuesday Night of Amazing Inventions and Also There is a Game’, a rollicking variety show that is exactly what it sounds like. Now, along with his trusty fictional keyboardist, manager and parrot wrangler Hank Mayonnaise (Adam Felber from Real Time with Bill Maher and NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me), Francisco brings his absurdist show to NerdMelt for a rollicking fun holiday-themed time. With special guests Dana Gould, Dan Cronin (another CONANwriter/performer), Brandon Wardell, Ed Salazar and singer Rebecca Schiffman! Produced by Adam Spiegelman.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” The Movie Review w/ @adamfelber & @toddlevin

EMad Max: Fury Road is out and we saw it!Adam Felber (NPR) and Todd Levin (Conan) join me in their review. “Mad Max:Fury Road” stars Tom Hardy, and Nicholas Hoult. Todd and I record in a sketchy alley behind Sunset and Curson. Right near Meltdown Comics where you can watch “Horrible Movie Night.” From IMDB: n a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, two rebels just might be able to restore order: Max, a man of action and of few words, and Furiosa, a woman of action who is looking to make it back to her childhood homeland. Instead of the reboot being a remake of Mad Max (1979), revealing how Max Rockantasky became The Road Warrior.George Miller decided that the reboot will take place in the post-apocalyptic Australia, years after the new Max (Tom Hardy) lost his family, because he did not wish to do a remake or retell the story that had already been told and had wanted to update the universe and the wasteland and wanted new moviegoers to remember Max as a man with nothing to lose after losing his family. After George Miller screened some footage at SXSW film festival.Aman stood up and asked: “How the hell did you film that!?” That man was none other than director Robert Rodriguez. Over 80% of the effects seen in the film are real practical effects, stunts, make-up and sets. CGI was used sparingly. Mainly to enhance the Namibian landscape, remove stunt rigging. Alsofor Charlize Theron‘s left hand which in the film is a prosthetic arm. BIG SEQUEL NEWS! FROM AV CLUB“Mad MaxFury Road”! In the week’s most expertly timed announcement, director George Miller has let Twitch know that he’s shooting not one but two Mad Max films back to back. With an eye on “rapid release.” It’s areboot of the post-apocalyptic franchise that laid the foundation for Mel Gibson’s eventual rise to the top of the fellatio-demanding food chain. It will star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, and pick up shortly after the events of 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Miller says the next film and its sequel will be titled Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa, respectively, which suggests the second part will find Max traversing the wasteland in a sporty Italian hatchback.

EAdam Felber (NPR) returns to talk about the “In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale.” (listen to the review and watch the whole movie) The master director, Uwe Boll, makes a film with very little dungeons and not one siege. Imagine “Lord of the Rings” withJason Statham as Frodo Baggins, Burt Reynolds as the king and lots of fake boobs. Matthew Lillard (FX’s “The Bridge” and “Bosch”) eats up scenery as Ray Liotta takes a nap.

“The Christmas Shoes” and “The Christmas Blessing” W/ Adam Felber

EThe saddest Christmas song ever was made into the saddest Christmas movie ever. “The Christmas Shoes” stars Rob Lowe, Dorian Harewood, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, John Dunsworth (“The Trailer Park Boys”) and a fabulous pair of shoes. Listen to me and NPR’s Adam Felber (“Wait… Wait Don’t Tell Me”) via Skype from his backyard to talk about the this three hanky tearjerker and it’s sequel, “The Christmas Blessing.” Watch the Christmas Shoes Here. From IMDB.com: Two separate stories mesh – in the first, a young music teacher, Maggie Andrews, begins dying of a heart condition and her son Nathan tries to get a pair of Christmas shoes for her before she dies. In the second, lawyer Robert Layton and his wife Kate are slowly drifting apart and the matter comes to a head during Christmas when Kate takes over for Maggie for the school choir and declines a job in Robert’s firm. When Robert’s mother passes away, he begins to reconsider things and his and Nathan’s paths cross on Christmas Eve as Nathan tries to raise the money for the shoes and Robert tries to get a present for his daughter. Written bycrow_steve@hotmail.com “The Christmas Blessing” stars Neil Patrick Harris as the grown up kid from the first movie. The problem is, they never bothered to recast his father, so the actors are roughly the same age. Rebecca Gayheart plays Patrick’s free spirited love interest – who gets really sick, but doesn’t die. Angus T. Jones (“2 1/2 Men” and carrier ending Youtube videos) plays a cute kid with a foot fetish and a week to live. “Doctor, what is it?” “I’m sorry to inform you, but your son won’t live past the third act of this film.” Comedian Patton Oswalt has a very funny routine about the song “The Christmas Shoes” by the Christian rock group “New Song.”billybobjomes did a great job animating it for us.

Neil Breen’s “I Am Here…. Now” w/ @AdamFelber

ENeil Breen’s (“Pass Thru”) second filmisactually called “I Am Here….Now” (trailer below). It’s fantastic from the moment you notice the error in the title. In the title! This is a crazy movie. It opens with Jesu not Jesus coming from outer space in a paper weight (yep) to stop corruption and literally lay with a prostitute. Also this movie has an environmental message. This is one of the crazier movies we’ve reviewed on this show. Judith Benezra (TV’s Chuck) and Adam Felber (Radio’s NPR) guest review and HATE this movie. I loved every second. Watch the movie below. Here’s the plot from the Neil Breen movie on IMDB – “Disappointed by its creation, the almighty being that created Man arrives on Earth in a human form and interacts with various troubled, wicked and sinful people on his journey to Vegas.” . Here’s Neil Breen’s bio from Wiki: Neil Breen is an American film actor, architect, director and writer. He is best known for writing, directing, and starring in his self-produced films Fateful Findings, I Am Here…Now, and Double Down.[1] Breen came late to film-making, having previously worked as a real estate agent and architect.[2][3] His releases thus far have been considered cult films.[4][5][6] Breen did not attend film school and considers himself to be a low-budget filmmaker who is not a part of Hollywood‘s “insider’s group.”[3] He makes his living as an architect in Las Vegas and funds his films from the money he makes from that profession.[1][3] He has noted that there is a common misconception that he is a real estate agent; according to Breen, he earned a real estate license, but only briefly worked as a real estate agent.[3] Breen’s films tend to pit his morally upstanding protagonists against powerful institutions.[1] He says that his films have a “sense of social responsibility” and reflect the “mystical or paranormal side of life.”[3] Breen gained notoriety after his first film, Double Down, became a part of Netflix‘s library.[5] Since then, his films have been picked up by arthouse theaters and film festivals, including the 2012 “Butt-Numb-A-Thon.

Gary Busey Plays a Dog w/ @Adamfelber and @Sullybaseball

EWriter/director Paul Sullivan,NPR’s Adam Felber (“Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me”) & Irecap “Quigley.”You know the movie whereGary Busey plays a mean computer game business type guy who is turned into a dog. As a dog, Gary learns about life, flimsy sets, terrible special effect, non-comedic timing and how to sleep through a role. “Quigley” also features Booger, Patrick from “SpongeBob,” Christopher Atkins, the black guy from “Dream On” (he’s also the guy from “The Parkers”). Anthony Perkins’ son plays it straight as a fallen angel. The movie has everything: bad sets, bad lines and even a crew member walking in front of a camera. To be fair, it could just be a pushy extra who likes to wear vests and carry lights. All these elements make a very fun film. Sullivan talks about directing his low-budget comedy “I’ll Believe You,” and how he almost got comedian Chris Elliott eaten by an alligator. Here are some choice clips of “Quigley.” It’s from the “Found Footage Festival.” I don’t know what’s “found” about it. Did they “find” it in a bargain bin? Anyway, thanks for editing this for me to “borrow.” I have just started the “Borrowed Clip Fest.”
