The colon train keeps rolling along and then explodes this week as we shoot through Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever!
Author and film critic Mark McPherson joins the show to look at the world’s worst reviewed film, and we try to figure out the math on how many dead Canadians $70 million will buy you. In our discussion of this “film”, we talk about critical impartiality, how easy it is to hide a microscopic robot, using landmines as an offensive weapon, making Ray Park look stupid, and whether or not a good movie can follow a “we open over water” beginning. Plus we discuss the superior Game Boy Advance adaptations, a Lucy Liu intervention, the “Matrix Syndrome”, Neil Breen, a steady diet of Hostess cakes, and Mark name-drops Surf Ninjas!
This episode is 800% better than this backwards-firing gun of a Canadian TV pilot deserves. In the (hypothetical) words of Gene Shalit, “Ballistic severs me from my will to live!…something something ‘ecks'”. Sever yours today!
