The Rise and Fall of Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson.


Is it possible to even say his name without it eliciting the same cliche nonsense from people? I mean, yeah the guy screwed up, but entertainers have been forgiven for doing FAR worse things than Mel (We can think of a certain convicted child raping Polish filmmakers that has been given a much wider swath of latitude than Mr. Gibson's drunken rants).

This week we take a look at a man that has been celebrated and demonized and held to an almost unrealistic level of scrutiny.

We are joined by Colin Higgins, Jerry, and Doctor Hot Dog, PhD.

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, or to be a part of the next run at this show. We are also on Twitter @TheFilmThugs, on Vine @TheFilmThugs, and on Facebook. Reach out, connect with us, and become part of the Film Thug family.

Until next time...

Jim out.
