Skelton goes to an afternoon screening of MAN OF STEEL and is struck by how drab a comic book movie can be. Also, he doesn’t talk about this in the vlog, but the theater was covered in garbage from the previous screening. Why can’t the movie-going public clean up after themselves? Seriously, you guys.
The Film Pigs are back with their twelfth episode! Not only do they fearlessly skewer the movies themselves, but they also take you on a journey behind the scenes of the entertainment industry. Before a movie hits the theater, before it is edited, before it is shot, before it is even written…some poor screenwriter has to convince a studio executive that there is a movie in his or her story.
Get your ass to Mars! The Film Pigs are back with a new alternate commentary for the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic TOTAL RECALL! Given the super-dull remake, this exercise in 90s over-the-topness is a breath of fresh air (Cohaagen!). And by “air” we mean a preposterous storyline, ludicrous blood-squib violence, a truly impressive amount of scene-ending quips, and the smoldering rage of Canada’s own negative emotion repository Michael Ironside. Open your miiiiiiinnnnd!
TO SYNC WITH MOVIE: start this commentary 10 seconds after starting movie (chapter 1 for DVD/BD).
