Despicable Me

Surrealism is making a come back.

I know we joke a lot in this episode as well as this description about this franchise being surrealist and also a masterpiece, but go back and watch it. Seriously, go back and watch it through the lens of them being a compilation of surrealist movie experiments and suddenly it all becomes weird as heck. I know this is more than likely not what they were going for at all, but it cannot be ignored. It just can’t! It’s Despicable Me.

Men in Black

You won’t even remember this episode when it’s done.

I tried to dress up like the men in black once. Unfortunately I didn’t have a tailored suit so it looked pretty shitty, you know, but at least I tried. I’m not actually sure if this story is even true anymore because I’m pretty sure I had my mind erased after. So it’s just kind of fragments that I have floating around in my mind that I’m trying to assemble into a coherent story. It’s Men in Black.

291: Invention Convention ft. JB Anderton (Spyfall)

It’s like a science fair but worse.

Weirdly enough there’s actually a new James Bond movie coming out this year. As in like, for the first time in 5 years there’s a James Bond movie coming to theatres. How do I know it was 5 years? Well because I took my dad for his birthday to see it, and it was a monumental age (no, I won’t tell you what it was though). It’s Spyfall written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1 and 5, 2020.


Show-notes:


13:12: The Doctor Who wiki surprisingly doesn’t have a page on left handedness. So instead here’s the page on dates.
22:30: Outside of G.I. Joe, Cobra is like an Austrian military police unit, an Indian police force, and a Serbian military police force.
24:04: It’s not pinned anymore because @Prof_Quiteamess deleted it ;_;
30:38: It was actually steganography. Stenography is something else. According to the Doctor wiki, steganography was only ever mentioned in this episode.
32:11: Here’s Lenny Henry playing the Doctor in 1985. I’ve actually seen this before, but I completely forgot about it.
1:08:30: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, that podcast that we’re finally doing again.
1:14:36: Also check out our other podcasts Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast and Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:39:20: This is just copied straight from the Doctor Who wiki: “Editing for the DVD release was completed by the Doctor Who Restoration Team. The most prominent of these edits is to the serial’s final scenes, when the freighter crashes into prehistoric earth. The edit mainly revises the scene so that, instead of the TARDIS’s monitor showing a still image of the freighter, followed by several bright flashes (meant to represent the explosion of the impact), the screen actually shows the freighter slamming into the Earth, with the explosion being represented by a pulsating light over the impact site.” This obviously has to do with the DVD release, which came out in like 2003 (so not exactly recently). But I think this might’ve been what people were discussing when it came to the blu ray.
2:16:52: Here’s the discussion that JB mentioned.
2:19:39: And of course just check out WHO 37 in general, and also check out BAT 77 too.

Rocky IV, Rocky V, Rocky VI

So this week we’re dressed up in America shorts while recording.

You’ll just have to trust me on the America shorts, I swear to god we were wearing them when we recorded. Rocky IV is basically the closest America has come to having legitimate propaganda, or at least until Fox News started. Is that joke too political for this podcast? I don’t think it is. It’s Rocky IV-VI, the seminal classics.

Lord of the Rings

The biggest trilogy ever attempted for this podcast… for a long time.

This was a serious slog. Now the real question is am I talking about the editing or the watching of these movies? I could be talking about both, it’s really late at night and I’ve been up for nearly 15 hours at this point. Which isn’t really that much of a bad thing, but I’ve been working all day. A quest of my own almost. It’s Lord of the Rings, as well as the very first episode of Season 2 of Triple Play. Let’s get this start with some Peter Jackson classics.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command

This seems somewhat fitting actually.

If you’ve made it this far, you’re one of like 6 people who have. Somehow I’m pretty sure Triple Play has only roughly 6 subscribers. It’s actually probably 5, since one of those subscribers is me, since I test that the episodes release correctly on my own phone. So yeah thanks all 5 of you! To Infinity and Beyond! It’s Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, as well as the thrilling(?) conclusion to the first “season” of Triple Play!


Show-notes:


10:40 General Grievous was a Kaleesh.
15:00 Of course they sold toys of this.
17:12 Check out Trust Your Doctor and Zenith.
22:29 Infinity War

Toy Story

Number 10 will shock you!

One day, when we have a big following, we can get clips of our podcast animated like all the big podcasts do. Then we can pay someone to animate clips from three consecutive episodes, which then would mean we would have our own animated trilogy. And then we could watch that trilogy for Triple Play, make an episode on them, and then that too could be animated. Where does it end?! It’s Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.


Show-notes:


2:48 FROM THE VISIONARY MIND OF ANG LEE
13:00 Luxo Jr. and Tin Toy
17:47 Which do you think looks worse? Aladdin or Sonic?
25:25 it was Bud Luckey who suggested that Woody be a cowboy. Ash Brannon co-directed Toy Story 2.
31:07 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
31:19 I don’t think it’s the same clip, but this test animation clip probably has the same vibe.
1:15:47 Buzz Lightyear of Star Command intro
1:16:20 It was this game. Don’t know why I remembered it all as happening on skateboards.

Iron Man: Armored Adventures

The age old conundrum.

Coming soon to your television screens: Trust Your Doctor: Animated Adventures. We’ve hired an obscure animation studio from Trenzalore, who specialize in 3-D hand drawn animation. We’ve reimagined ourselves as high school students just setting out on a podcasting adventure, which is weird, because that’s actually what happened. So it’s not really a reimagining. It’s Iron Man: Armored Adventures, which released on April 24, 2009.


Show-notes:


3:08 Bubbles is the blue one, Buttercup is the red one, Blossom is the green one.
3:40 It was Thundercats Roar. I guess I was so disgusted that I couldn’t even get the name right.
23:07 Snow White is 83 minutes. Alice in Wonderland is 75 minutes.
28:17 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast, if you want to hear us discuss material that’s way better than this.

Here’s all the stuff we mentioned in this episode:
Powerpuff Girls
Dexter’s Lab
Flinstones
Jetsons
Jackie Chan Adventures
90s Iron Man tv show
X-Men The Animated Series
Batman the Animated Series
Batman Beyond
The Batman
Teen Titans (Go (to The Movies))
Spirited Away
Machinima
RWBY
Red vs. Blue

Iron Man

Well this is the biggest plot twist of our lifetime.

Last time we got stuck in a cave we were forced to start a podcast, and that’s how we got Zenith. Frankly we all know how that turned out. Pretty well actually. All the best things are made in caves at gunpoint. It’s Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man 3. Unlike two months ago these movies are actually connected in a trilogy.


Show-notes:


4:53 Our Spider Man episode. I thought this was more recent.
6:00 Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot.
12:26 This Daredevil movie that came out in 2003. I thought this was more recent too.
13:12 Happy Hogan is played by Jon Favreau in a lot of these Marvel movies.
18:38 Quantum of Solace: 2008. Skyfall: 2012. Spectre: 2015.
30:46 Matthew Libatique is the director of photography for Iron Man 2.
38:08 Iron Man is by Black Sabbath.
51:20 Genndy Tartakovsky is a Russian-American animator who storyboarded Iron Man 2 and created Sym-bionic Titan, which was cancelled for merchandising reasons.
56:56 We also did an episode on The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (and the other Dollars movies) a few years ago.

Best Worst Movie

And introducing, the one, the only, TROOOLLLLLLL 2!

Unsurprisingly there was very little expanded universe, well, “stuff” to do for the Troll “trilogy.” Perhaps that’s because Troll isn’t even really a trilogy, and not only that these movies flopped so badly when they came out pretty much every studio within a million years didn’t want to touch it with a twenty foot bottle of Nilbog Milk. It’s Best Worst Movie, written and directed by Michael Stephenson and premiered on March 14, 2009.


Show-notes:


0:29 South by Southwest 2019 starts on March 8.
1:58 MST3K is a show about watching stuff. Kind of like this, but with more little-known movies that are usually considered poorly made. One of the most notoriously bad movies they ever covered was Manos: The Hands of Fate.
2:49 Birdemic and The Room are two other contenders for the worst movie of all time. I haven’t watched either but I doubt they’re worse than Troll 2.
5:41 Troll “trilogy” episode here.
11:20 Still can’t find the full script of the Troll 2 fan sequel, but it’s called Troll 3 Monstrous Beings if you want to try and find it yourself.
11:28 Trust Your Doctor is our Doctor Who podcast.
22:24 Her name was Deborah Reed. Apparently she has an interview in the dvd extras. Here’s the Troll 2 section of her blog. She’s also talked about Troll 2 in various interviews.
24:52 Chuck is a movie about Chuck Wepner, the guy who inspired Rocky.
