This week on the Intermission Podcast, the Movieguys discuss the changes to the Ironman comic books, which gives Guy a hernia. Also, the BattleBots Fantasy League week 3 showdown! Who will win the epic prize and will Craig finally learn to count? Probably not. Then a bunch of movies are talked about, being a movie podcast and all I really shouldn’t be this surprised…
Is it Ironman or Ironperson?
Jumping right into things, at risk of losing Corey, Craig brings up the worst news Guy has ever heard. So bad in fact, that he was placed on suicide watch, and not in the fun way. The Iron Man comic books have taken an interesting turn, to say the least. In case you didn’t hear, Ironman has taken a 15-year-old girl (I know what you’re thinking, I am too) as his intern, or something like that. This leads to the discussion of whether a 15-year-old girl needs a license of some sort to fly an Ironman suit, and would Tony Stark need to ride along or not. It seems that this particular debate hinges on the question of whether astronauts needed flying licenses or something? If that’s the case, how did the monkey get a license? What if there is an emergency and the only licensed astronaut dies or something? Do they have to wait for a tow? Then, getting back to the topic at hand, why call it Ironman instead of Ironperson? Then the live video feed glitched as Guy was picking his nose, which made for some laughs.
BattleBots Fantasy League!
Josh’s shows off his new ninja stars and Corey gets killed. These are of course going to be added to the BattleBots Fantasy League official trophy! So on to the only thing that matters, BattleBots! Unfortunately, Craig is the only person to watch the show. Also, BattleBots came up with their own fantasy league, which makes the Movieguys’ look like shit. Thier rules are long and complicated, but they help you along as they publish the stats every week. This makes the minutes of hard work Craig put into this completely useless, but that is the story of Craig. BattleBots was awesome this week, and the Fantasy results have been calculated… Corey is at the ass end of the winning train, as Josh sits right on top of him. Guy leads Craig by a large margin. As Craig reads the results, he realizes that he can’t count and Josh is ahead of him. The Official official order is 1. Guy, 2. Josh, 3. Craig, 4. Corey.
Mike and Dave: The Battle of the Hotties
Josh is sad because he hasn’t seen Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates yet. While trying to remember all the actors names, Craig suggests that Aubrey Plaza is so hot he gets wet just thinking about her. Josh agrees she is a living female so he is attracted to her, but Anna Kendrick really gets him there. This leads to way too long of a discussion of who banged Robert De Niro. An official decision was never reached about who was actually hotter, but everybody now has an erection.
Guy and Josh go on yet another man date with Guy’s mom as an escort, to see The Legend of Tarzan. Many people think it is not good, but Guy thought it was the opposite of that. Speculation is that Ecto Cooler will be coming to the Coke Freestyle on opening night of the new Ghostbusters movie… We will see. Well back to Tarzan, apparently Craig is highly offended because of a joke at the expense of certain religious groups. What offends him more is bad CGI, which apparently this movie has, as does other movies the guys talk about. Guy calls them crazy because apparently it is the best movie of the year or something.
MXC and MST3K: You Figure it Out
In other news, Hulu is now showing MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge). Craig is watching it again, laughing more than he has in a lifetime. The show is based on a 1980’s Japanese show and the point of the show is to not get eliminated. You do this while repeatedly getting hit in the face by 2×4’s and such. Sounds like fun. Also, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is coming back! Needless to say, everyone is wetting themselves like an anxious puppy at the excitement of the whole thing.
Fan mail this week! A fan leaked a picture that has never been seen before:
Another fan, that’s right, they have two, Paul the World’s Greatest Fan has driven to the largest candy store in the universe. Now a “care package” is inbound. Guy is excited at all the skittle potential. Craig sends Paul a box of stuff and hates the post office now.
Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh ASK GUY! Yep, it’s that time again. Question one: Why are the female Ghostbusters better than the males? Guys answer: only in hell, and then it’s iffy. Lastly, would Guy eat a tomato for anything on Earth? Maybe… And then we find out that Craig is part horse. Or and alien.
- Craig: Darth Vader Origins; The Kenobi Story
- Guy: Godzilla vs. King Kong
- Corey: Top Gun 4; The Return of the Cruise (and Ke$ha)
- Josh: Mad Max; Return to Fury Road
Who the hell cares at this point?
