Rank #9: 33. Abduction (w/ Jessica Chaffin)
Oh, Abduction. We laughed, we cried (at least Jason did), we got uncomfortable, we were confused. Jessica Chaffin is our guest this week to unwrap the layers of awfulness that awarded Abduction its 4% score on Rotten Tomatoes. From the Pittsburghian influence to the subtle racism, we're here to try to make sense of it all. Rent Abduction from Amazon using this link to support the show, and join us for this train-ride to mediocrity.
Rank #10: 64. After Earth (w/ Paul F. Tompkins)
Giant birds, weird wheelchairs, and ghosting are just some of the unbelievable things that are found in the Will & Jaden Smith vehicle After Earth. Paul, June, Jason, and Paul F. Tompkins discuss future British accents, an emotionless Will Smith, and animals that do nothing but kill. They also talk about the possible references to Scientology, a future with no doors & only a sword as a weapon, and June’s interpretation of what really happened in the birthday candles flashback scene.
Rank #11: 37. Speed 2: Cruise Control (w/ Scott Aukerman)
Are you listening to this podcast on a computer? If so, you could be a villain in Speed 2! In this epic summer sequel we lament the absence of Keanu, marvel at the lack of deaths when a cruise ship levels a community, and wonder why computer genius Willem Dafoe has a gun if he never uses it. Do you have a bad summer movie you think we should cover?
Rank #12: 74. Halloween III: Season of the Witch
It's a HDTGM first as Paul, June, and Jason go guestless this week to tackle the terrifyingly terrible Halloween III: Season of the Witch. They'll discuss Dr. Sexy Detective sleeping with everyone, the robots full of goo, the evil Irish novelty toy manufacturer's reason for his big Halloween plan, Marge Guttman's bedwear, and Stonehenge lasers. The gang also explains how they would turn humans into robots if they were evil masterminds right before getting into another edition of Second Opinions. 8 more days 'til Halloween!
Rank #13: 78. Crossroads (w/ Jeff Rubin)
It’s not a music video and not yet a movie. Jeff Rubin of The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show joins Paul, June, and Jason to discuss Britney Spears in 2002’s Crossroads. They talk about why you shouldn’t judge the movie from the poster, the many similarities to Adventures in Babysitting, the heavy secrets montage, and the very dark ending. Plus, Paul gives everyone a Pop Quiz that features some insane trivia!
