Hello and welcome to episode 168 of the Intermission Podcast brought to you by movieguys.org. This week, the Movie Guys talk about milkshakes, spanner wrenches, and the shared hatred of camping and the people that make them do it. They review The Hitman’s Bodyguard, and Craig feels like an idiot regarding Dunkirk. Enjoy.
Milkshakes, Ice Cream, and Cake
We start off this week by proving Guy wrong. To be fair, you could say that about many weeks. You see, Guy wanted a milkshake after the movie so he went down to Speedway and paid twice as much for half of a milkshake. The Intern and Josh went down to the milkshake joint and got twice the milkshake for half as much. Math. For some reason, this leads to the topic of cakes, and ice cream cakes, and cake ice creams. Craig thinks that ice cream cake is ice cream, not cake, but the Intern insists that if you eat it with a fork it is cake, not ice cream. This argument quickly got out of hand and after the police left we just agreed to disagree.
Craig Confuses Guy
Changing the subject, Craig told us that he has gotten really into magnet fishing. Not doing it, but watching other people do it. He saw one guy net 17 spanner wrenches in one trip! Guy, apparently having tuned Craig out, asks, “How do they catch fish with magnets?” Moving on…
We went and watched Hitman’s Bodyguard before the show. It was really good, very enjoyable. Craig summarizes it to be “Deadpool without superpowers.” There was a couple CGI issues, a couple bad shots but Corey wasn’t there to see it so it’s okay. Craig thought it was a bit long, a chase scene that didn’t really need to be quite as drawn out, and the Intern agrees. It was still enjoyable though. Craig explains what a cockroach is to Guy. Craig then agrees with Guy, causing Craig to have minor convulsions. He feels so dirty now. Josh also enjoyed it. As did the Intern. As did Guy. As Corey probably will.
Craig kicks off his always popular “Complain about Stuff” segment of the show with Fast 8. He wasn’t impressed with the Rock being able to throw a hellfire missile around like pixie stick, but Guy sure was and this lead to another argument. Craig won, mainly because the editor in chief (Josh) and the intern (The Intern) agree with him, the host (Craig). You wanna know what Guy’s title is? So does he.
This is the last day in the studio for the Intermission Podcast crew, there will be some downtime before we get up and running again but still watch out for content. Our host is moving (I know, the nerve of some people) and along with him our studio. Things might never be the same, but hey, it’s not like we can get any worse, right?
Part two of “Craig Complains” he gripes about Corey dragging them to some island to, get this, CAMP! Camping of all things, what kind of monster is he? Guy also isn’t thrilled about the whole ordeal, but at least he gets to sleep in a tent. Craig has to sleep under the van, or in it, if he prefers.
Speaking of Craig’s misery, he gives us the lowdown of the aftermath of the pepper challenge. Boy is everyone else glad they didn’t eat the whole thing. He said he didn’t know whether he wanted to throw up or die. He might have said last week that he would do that again for charity or something, he now denies that he ever said that and expects that Josh did some clever editing to make it sound like he did, but he didn’t! So no one emails us asking Craig to eat another one for a large charitable contribution. Don’t do it, I’m warning you. Stop!
Finally this week, Craig is forced to recant some of his previous statements about the movie Dunkirk and how people at work won’t leave him alone about how good it is. As it turns out, Dunkirk is a code name for a project his company is working on, and they weren’t referring to the movie at all. So yeah… Imagine how he feels.
