a couple of my old acquaintances recently started a video game podcast. I listened to one episode and thought about On Cinema the whole time. one of the guys has probably played 20,000 hours of video games but has absolutely nothing insightful to say about them, it's so spot on that I've almost come to view Tim & Gregg as real people

Has anyone started an On On Cinema at the Cinema podcast yet

I just watched shakey's clip the other day. It wouldn't be nearly as beautiful without the interviewer's overt lack of interest in Gregg's banalities.

Can you guess which album changed Gregg's life?

trying to get into this... its humour is not completely lost on me but it’s also extremely fn boring... hmm

It's probably okay to just stop if you don't feel like it's a five-bagger.

What have you watched / listened to so far?

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Monday, 8 July 2019 02:25 (three months ago) link

Me, I just bore witness to the cancellation of Decker season 3 this evening, so it's difficult to put myself back in the headspace of several years ago when I watched a handful of On Cinemas and said 'IDGI'. Suffice it say, I'm glad I got over myself.

now we will never know if Agent Kington would have defeated Dracula

Οὖτις, Monday, 8 July 2019 17:00 (three months ago) link

The effects at Dracula's castle were a whole 'nother level of special. I particularly liked the table that followed Gregg around for a while.

"as we all remember so many years ago, a couple of years ago we had the death of osama bin laden, killed in action after we spent years hunting him for the murder of 9/11"

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 03:10 (three months ago) link

I would've liked to see Sasha Baron Cohen play the Osama role

frogbs, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 03:20 (three months ago) link

this is already amazing by episode 9

i'm pretty much where brad is, i think - i watched all of S1 in one sitting and loved it. absolutely drove my partner crazy though, i think.

i love all the talk about how good it is to see some famous, sometimes washed up, actor "back on the big screen"

we haven't seen russell crowe in a while

"It's great seeing Brendan Frasier back in a movie again, I've always loved him, and I love looking at Katherine Heigl, she's just the kind of woman I like, in terms of beauty, and sex appeal, she is hot, she is a 10, actually"

"If you've seen the movie, you'd know it's an animated movie about a squirrel"

"You have to admit the technology now is so good that some of these animated movies look like real life"

"Some of them do, but when a squirrel starts talking, you generally know it's an animated picture"

frogbs, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:35 (three months ago) link

You imagine there ought to be a real life Gregg out there, absolutely ecstatic about the selection of dusty old extremely forgettable VHS movies in some bin at a thrift shop, next to a some CD cases of old computer software, AOL trials, Yanni, baseball games for PS2 etc.

Evan, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:41 (three months ago) link

Thank u for reminding me of the Nut Job review, frogs. Tim's overreaction to Gregg's joke about it being the name of Tim's autobiography was my first big On Cinema laugh.

Just recently saw some Neil Hamburger footage for the first time since I started watching this show. I don't know how I'd forgotten the extreme disparity between the two sides of Turkington, but it was a stark reminder.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:46 (three months ago) link

I love that they generally never review actual hits, tentpole pics, oscar winners etc. not even huge mainstream garbage (MCU, Star Wars, Pixar etc) its almost always b-list shit that instantly vanishes from the public consciousness.

aka popcorn classics!

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:49 (three months ago) link

idk why but every time tim mispronounces an actor's name i completely lose it, thankfully it happens in every single episode

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:57 (three months ago) link

I especially like a) when assumes that the first and last names were transposed and b) when he assumes that the name on the card must be a misprint because it's not written in the same way that it left his mouth.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:03 (three months ago) link

If the mispronunciations are tickling your funny bone, watching Decker might actually kill you. Exercise caution!

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:04 (three months ago) link

Tim is great at it. I find it funny cause it reminds me of my dad tbh.

Evan, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:09 (three months ago) link

I think it's fair to say that Tim Heidecker is the unparalleled master of awkward, error-prone, completely unearned arrogance.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:12 (three months ago) link

Well theres trump

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:13 (three months ago) link

Well, yeah.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:18 (three months ago) link

I don't know how I'd forgotten the extreme disparity between the two sides of Turkington, but it was a stark reminder.

his On Cinema persona is actually kinda similar to the early "America's Funnyman" version of the character

frogbs, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:26 (three months ago) link

Yeah, I need to listen to the prank calls again, it's been forever.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:29 (three months ago) link

I had the nude model classified ad as my voicemail greeting for much longer than was probably advisable.

the one where he tells a really long and meandering version of his 7-11 joke just to see how long he can keep the guy on the phone was incredible. but I was referring more to the 91-92 version..."Raw Hamburger" and all that

amusingly I once spotted a sample from Great Phone Calls on a Cornelius album, one of his early ones before he broke through to the U.S. - I've always been really curious as to how that happened

frogbs, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 19:35 (three months ago) link

I was just thinking earlier that Hijinks! is almost certainly a five-bagger.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 19:36 (three months ago) link

I think it's fair to say that Tim Heidecker is the unparalleled master of awkward, error-prone, completely unearned arrogance.

Let's also not forget to acknowledge Heidecker's TV pre-Tim-cessor Tim Taylor, whose arrogant, error-prone home improvement schemes would fail spectacularly before a live studio audience once a week in the nineteen-nineties. Oh, Tim Taylor, when will you learn to quell your thirst for more power.

ok, the google tells me the same was sample by Cornelius on "Moon Walk"

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 19:51 (three months ago) link

nah - it's this song. sample appears right at the beginning. that's interesting though

they do do plenty of hits and tentpoles, bcz they have to choose flicks whose release dates aren't going to move by the time the episode comes out months later - they just never say anything memorable about them bcz the movies don't exist when they tape

idk I'm through season 9 and so far they haven't reviewed a single MCU movie apart from Ant-Man

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 20:01 (three months ago) link
