In Defense Of: The Master of Disguise

11/28/2017
More
What happens when an idea, best left to a 5-8 minute Saturday Night Live Skit, gets the "full movie" treatment? You sometimes get decent movies, like "Night at the Roxbury", but often, you get things like "It's Pat" and "The Ladies' Man". This one falls heavily on the Latter. Dana Carvey stars in this movie about a guy who can transform into disguises, and supposed hilarity ensues.

In Defense Of: The Legend Of the Titanic

9/21/2017
More
Our new episode of In Defense of is Live! Remember 1997? Titanic was a huge hit from James Cameron, people fell in love with that movie, and it broke all kind of box-office records. Remember 1999? Apparently Italy thought that 1999 was still the year of the Titanic, so they took it upon themselves to tackle the sensitive subject with children in mind. What came from this was the movie we had to painfully sit through. However, we did learn a few things along the way. Like, did you know...

"Oh Star Wars, Nothing but Star Wars, Give me those Star Wars,Dont let them end." Famous words from Bill Murray in a 1970s SNL Skit, those words seem to have been taken to heart by Disney. Not only do we have the rest of the Third trilogy to look forward to, but there's also Stand alone stories to look forward to, both Han Solo, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The State Of takes a look at these movies, their potential, and if there's such a thing as Oversaturation in the Star Wars Universe.

In Defense Of... FoodFight!

6/18/2017
More
It's back again, and this time, it's even worse! When you hear about a movie that has Charlie Tuna, Mr. Clean, The Hawaiian Punch man, and Mrs. Buttersworth, you'd think you'd be watching a large product placement movie. However, you'd be quite wrong when watching this awful piece of "art". FoodFight is an abomination of a movie, put through years of sorrow and suffering. Revived from the dead, it now graces our screen, and makes us never want to watch another movie again. Follow us on...

It appears that it's time for The State of Podcast to get a new laptop. While Ryan works out the kinks in what he has now, we are posting our final Suite 12 podcast we ever did. Back in 2015, Harry Shearer was rumored to be leaving The Simpsons. That fortunately did not happen, so our retrospect is a bit dated, but we look back at our favorite voices he did.

These are the cream of the crop that we have enjoyed through our life. these have to be direct from the movie, so no games from movie franchises that happen to be better (Star Wars Battlefront I'm looking at you), but we were able to still find 12!
