From the theater to your living room… for some reason.

• October 20th, 2014

A ways back we did an episode about TV shows being made into movies. Honestly, I have no idea how long ago it was. After 200 episodes, it gets hard to remember when a specific one occurred.

Regardless, we felt that enough time had passed to make doing a kind of follow up seem appropriate. That and the spate of TV shows based on movies making their way down the pipeline didn't hurt either.

So, this week we take a look at the shows that began their lives in theaters. Some are great, some are awful, some just make no damned sense. Enjoy.

Remember, you can be a part of the show any time you wild like. How's that? All you have to do is call or e-mail us. If you live in the US, or any place that makes calling the US easy, just dial 512-666-RANT and leave us a voicemail. We will read the Google Voice transcript and play your message. It's both funny AND informative.

If you live outside the US you can call us on Skype at The_Film_Thugs. You can leave a message, or someone might actually answer.

E-mail us at thefilmthugs@gmail.com and we will read/play whatever you send us, or you can e-mail thugquestions@gmail.com to be part of  an upcoming "Ask the Film Thugs" show, where we answer questions on any subject without having heard them first.

Also, we are on twitter @thefilmthugs and on Facebook and Vine.

You can also click on one of our sponsor links below and THEY will pay us. That's right. You won't have to pay a PENNY extra, and Amazon/Onnit/Teefury will give us a little taste.

Thanks for listening, and until next week...

Sometimes the “bad guy” isn’t wrong.

• October 13th, 2014

There are basic tenants of narrative that we just accept. There is a good guy. There is a bad guy. The good guy has to grow and become good enough to triumph over the bad guy. Simple, right?

Well....

You see, this basic coding is so deeply ingrained in us that we just accept it, even if it happens to be wrong.

Truth of the matter, the bad guy/bad guy thing is more connected to what we are told than what is actually happening in the story.

This week we take a look at some bad guys who... well, who weren't bad guys.

Ridiculous Action

• September 29th, 2014

There is nothing better than a good action movie. Well, maybe a bad action movie, but only if its the right kind of bad.

This week we decided to do some penance for the ordeal we inflicted upon you over the past month by going a little nuts and talking ridiculous action movies. From the myriad Die Hard rip offs to Stone Cold and all points in between, we talk foolishness and guns.

The Day the Clown Cried. Part 3: What have you done, Jim?

• September 22nd, 2014

Finally, we have reached the end of... this thing.

I'm not really sure what this began as... I mean... we were honest about our intentions. We wanted to take a look at one of the most ego fueled acts of hubris from an industry that specializes in those two things, to look into the arrogance behind such a mythic piece of work, and simply ask, "why?" ... or at the very least, "how?"

What did we learn? Well, we learned that there isn't always a why or a how, that we don't deserve answers to every question.

Basically, we just got mad. Mad at the blatant exploitation of one of the darkest chapters in human history. Mad at the lack of self awareness that is needed to make something like this. Mad at the thought that this material could be mined for financial or critical gain in such a...

You know, just listen to the show. All I can do here is recap the anger that flared up in us while recording.

Hang in there, you are almost done with the first public performance of one of the most notorious pieces of "entertainment" ever created. Know that you have made it.

Please note that this performance is intend as satire and parody, and is presented in a transformational way for both critical and educational purposes.

That being said, we are very sorry. And may God have mercy on our souls.
