  1. I have the perfect film for that you completely won me over: Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar. It’s available wherever you rent movies, but it is $19.99 to rent right now. It’s well worth it though! Anyways, Kristen Wiig & Annie Mumolo wrote & created an instant cult classic that might be the most quotable film in quite some time. The comedy is all over the place and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s absurd, light, goofy, slapstick, and anything goes, but the 2 main characters are what makes the whole thing work. Their friendship is really well written, yet it is a sendup of female friendships in a particular age group. The comedic landscape that the film plays around in reminded me of Austin Powers mixed with Bridesmaids and a dash of Hot Rod for the music. There really hasn’t been much in terms of new comedies since the pandemic started and obviously we need to laugh. This definitely helped fill the void big time. I just wish that I could have laughed with a sold out audience.
  2. Sorry for the really late response on this! Wow! I can’t even fathom watching 74 films over what I presume was a short window. Andrew Patterson’s next feature is a revenge thriller set in the honeybee industry. I can’t wait! You know that I was never aware of Jim Cummings or Thunder Road, until I came across The Wolf Of Snow Hollow. I’ve been meaning to rent it or track it down on one of the many streaming services, but haven’t rented it yet. Edited: I just checked and it’s on Amazon Prime Video. Hmm...I don’t remember seeing this on there last time I checked. Actually, a former co-worker of mine has a friend of his that interned on a film that Jim Cummings produced that just hit Tubi: Beast Beast. I haven’t watched that one either, but I’ve heard great things about it.
  3. Thank you for this info, pbzb! I knew that Sammy sang this during an earlier show, but I couldn’t find the title in my notes. I’ll add this to the recap and give you credit.

  10. I almost called it that. There were a few titles that came to mind. I decided against “Sing In The Choir” because I don’t think I’d remember that those lyrics had something to do with viewing present day America through Jeff’s eyes in that song. That being said, I’ve only heard the song once.

  14. Good idea, but it looks like it was the charger cable. It did come back to life on a different charger after some time. I had it behind my couch for a long time, so it's next to my bed and I figured something would happen eventually. Too many times I would check my phone when it was connected and it would tug, so it seems like that helped cause some corrosion. It's an older iPhone and luckily I still have some of the older chargers here. I think the older chargers work faster than the newer "coaster" chargers for the newer iPhones.

  22. This is one of the best films that I watched in 2020. I won’t spoil the plot for you, since I had no idea about this film other than it had Aubrey Plaza who gives one of the most amazing performances last year. I will say to try to watch it with someone following CDC guidelines, so that you can dissect it after. There’s a lot going on. (Available to rent on iTunes etc.)

New "infinite surprise" lyrics repeated at the end which might hint at the song title.) -- Jeff's new Tweedy Show segment idea is to have him & Basil blindfolded, while they are spun around to see which direction they face as they poop: Longiturdinal. -- Jeff says that he was right about the Polynesian testicle navigation and the relationship between drinking alcohol & hearing loss. Reincarnation (Roger Miller cover)
  24. A somewhat interesting & innovative biopic that I found to be extremely familiar after watching The Current War (much more compelling film) a few years prior. Ethan Hawke’s performance is better than the kitchen sink style of the film. Hawke has a great singing voice in this film...about Tesla. (Available on Hulu, even though it is not a Hulu Original.)
  25. The Wolf Of Snow Hollow was a pleasant surprise that mixed small town humor with some decent horror. Robert Forster is great here in his last film role, but writer/director/actor Jim Cummings is fantastic wearing all 3 hats. (Available to rent on iTunes etc.)
