There are movies that the Somethings agree about… Highlander. There are movies that the Somethings disagree about… Mars Attacks.
The Invitation definitely fits into one of those categories.
A group of people are invited (get it?) to a dinner party where they haven’t seen each other in quite a long time and have a sordid history. So why are they there? Is it supposed to feel so uncomfortable? Are they getting suckered into buying Amway?
There is an infamous place in New Jersey, home of the Somethings, that had the nickname of Traction Park.
This amusement park was known for its bad management and injury prone nature.. and yet we all went as a right of passage.
Take that information and welcome to Action Point, a movie inspired by the world of Action Park and taken and pushed through a Jackass fueled blender.
What did the Somethings thing? Did they walk away with busted up ribs from laughter or chip a tooth from grinding their teeth in anger…. only one way to find out – check out #10 of Something In Review – ACTION POINT!
A group of people who have seemingly never met all gather together, invited by the mysterious Mr. Boddy.
What we find out from there is how much they do know about each other and what they hold over each other’s heads….
Unendingly quotable and beloved by everyone with good taste, this movie made form a boardgame should not have ever been as good as it ended up… but here we are.
So count your bullets (1+1+2+1…) and douse the flames on the side of your head, we’re giving you Something In Review #9: Clue.
Podcast Rob and Hatton love a bad movie.. maybe Hatton a little more than PCR. Specifically, the kinds of movies where there is so much fun being had by the people that made it or the premise is so knowingly dumb that it is hard to not enjoy yourself.
These are not those movies.
You see, we have talked about bad movies before, but not bad movies before… you follow? The sort of movies that you get up and almost leave the theater and ask for your money back bad. The type of movie you stop in the middle to go get yourself some Tums bad. Movies that derail careers.
These flicks aren’t the sorts of things that came out of the other side of bad and found love… they just got lost in bad and haven’t thought to ask for directions.
