Distraction Therapy: Will Sasso’s Man Rules

• April 13th, 2014

For a while we have been toying with the idea of doing a show that wasn't about movies. Not an episode, mind you, but a full on show where we just talk about whatever we feel like talking about.

This week, we decided to give it a try. Both of us are big fans of The Ten Minute Podcast. If you haven't listened to it, you really should. It's three buddies, Will "Gladiator Helmet Face" Sasso, Bryan "The Kid" Callen, and Chris "The Romantic Jaguar" D'Ela, making you laugh for 10 minutes.

Well, Mr. Sasso put out a list of some of his "Man Tips" from twitter on his Hamfatter website. This week we decided to read them and give our reactions.

Hopefully you like it.

Also, 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, of 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...

Rock and or Roll… second attempt

• April 3rd, 2014

This is the same episode that we launched Sunday, but there was a technical error that kept it from publishing to iTunes, so we are trying one more time.

Before we got to the show information we wanted to let you know about "Favor," a movie starring Blayne Weaver, onetime guest/co-host of the show, and written and directed by Paul Osborne, upcoming guest/co-host of the show. It is a very tight thriller based on the saying, "a friend helps you move, a best friend helps you move a body." I saw the premier this year at the Austin Film Festival and dug it quite a bit.

If you want to support good films made by good people check it out. It'll be available on video on demand April 22nd. You can see the trailer on Vimeo. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even pre-order it on iTunes right now.

While you're at it, Check out Blayne's "Six Month Rule," one of my top 10 films of 2011, and Paul's amazing documentary "Official Rejection," which pulls back the curtain on the film festival scene.



On this week's show...

We decided to throw a little variety your way and talk more about music than movies. Granted, we still talk about music movies, but we focus a little more on the music itself.

We discuss our love of everything from rock to hard rick to classic rock, and all genres in between.

Also, 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.

The Year That Was 1999

• March 23rd, 2014

1999 was a pretty interesting year to be alive, at least for us it was.

The whole millennium thing aside, this was a time of pretty significant transition. Instead of boring you with the details here, how about you just take a listen and see what the world was like for Jim and Clarkson 15 years ago.

We also discuss food, car accidents, and Jim utters the phrase, "The San Diego Chicken is an asshole."

We make a valliant effort to discuss Philip Seymour Hoffman.

• March 9th, 2014

The acting world recently lost one of its greats. Philip Seymour Hoffman was an immense talent. There is no other way to put it. He had a range, a depth, and an understanding of what acting means that most actors could never dream of achieving.

He could be funny, heartbreaking, and terrifying all in equal understated measure. His acting was about quality, not quantity. He wasn't flashy, because that wasn't the point. He was more than that. He was real, and he will be missed.

Hoffman.jpg

That being said, this is also the first time we've recorded in two weeks and there have been some big doings in that time. Clarkson moved into his house, Jim has an offer pending and is not 90% finished with a masters degree. Let's be honest, we are overstimulated children who get even more overstimulated when the mics are in front of us, so we kind of wander a bit. but you have come to expect that.

Also, you can be a part of the show any time you would 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.

Film Drunks

• February 23rd, 2014

Little known fact. Four years ago, during the planning phases of the show, one of the names we considered was Film Drunks podcast, or Drunks on Film. And those who have listened from the beginning know that this would have been a more fitting title.

 

So, we figured after four years we should probably address this potential title in the form of a show.

 

Here it is, from the good to the bad, from the funny to the tragic, our look at the best movie drunks.

 

Also, you can be a part of the show any time you would 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.

Episode 200: The Film Thugs on Film Thugs

• February 16th, 2014

This is our 200th episode.

 

That's right. One episode a week for four years. We missed a few here and there, but somehow we made it to 200.

 

I honestly cannot wrap my head around that number, even as I'm typing it, for some reason it feels made up. It sounds cliché, but it really does feel like yesterday that we sat down at a Craigslist table in New Braunfels, Texas with a fair quantity of beer, a few cigars, and a cheap USB microphone. 

 

But here we are. And what better way for The Film Thugs to celebrate 200 than to finally, at long last take a look at the best Film Thugs.

 

So, join us again for our double century mark as we ramble on about thugs, henchmen, and whatever the hell else we feel like.

 

 

Also, you can be a part of the show any time you would 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 funny AND informative!

Bad Cop, Bad Cop: A look at some of film’s worst police officers.

• February 2nd, 2014

Law enforcement is not an easy job. Not only is it low paying, dangerous work, you also have a bunch of people who don't know anything about it CONSTANTLY trying to act as if they are experts. Add to that the general disregard Hollywood pays the details of jobs outside of the movie industry, and it's a surprise that there are ever any good cops on film.




This week we take a look at some of the worst. From incompetent, to corrupt, to borderline developmentally disabled we take a look at the worst cops that movies and TV have to offer.

As usual the Thug hotlines are both still open and awaiting your phone calls, if you live in the US call 512-666-RANT and leave a message about your most memorably awful movie theater experience. If you don't live in the US and want to avoid costly international charges, just Skype us at The_Film_Thugs. You can also e-mail us at thefilmthugs@gmail.com, or thugquestions@gmail.com to be a part of the next run at this show. We are also on Twitter @TheFilmThugs, on Vine @TheFilmThugs, and on Facebook.

Then there’s this guy: The most annoying characters in film and television

• January 19th, 2014

There are some characters you just want to punch in the face. Sometimes it's on purpose, the character is meant to be annoying or off putting. But there are times when a character you are supposed to like, love, or just connect with fails, and fails miserably.


(Photo unrelated)

This week we take some time to spit a little vitriol in the direction of some of the characters that have annoyed us to no end.


As usual the Thug hotlines are both still open and awaiting your phone calls, if you live in the US call 512-666-RANT and leave a message about your most memorably awful movie theater experience.

Clint Eastwood and The Steaks We’ve Known

• January 12th, 2014

Clint Eastwood. Is there anything else that needs to be said? What other actor has taken a role in a small, throwaway foreign film where he barely speaks and turned it into a career this big? From gruff, stoic western nomad to gruff, stoic police detective, to gruff, stoic boxing coach he has truly run the gamut of gruff, stoic leading men.

This week we take a look at the career of one of the most iconic stars in the history of film and discuss steak, because it seems fitting.



As usual the Thug hotlines are both still open and awaiting your phone calls, if you live in the US call 512-666-RANT and leave a message about your most memorably awful movie theater experience.
