This time on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy board the Botany Bay and find Matt Jackson, naked, alone, and full of evil intent. Together, they crash the serene quiet of the cosmos with a ghetto blaster, a crappy but lovable star cruiser, and a mission to punch at the heart of this week’s nerdy news with acid wits and embarrassing bitch tits.
WHAT WE TALKIN BOUT BRUCE WILLIS? We talkin bout nananana Batman! Is Wonder Woman going to crash DC’s upcoming spandex sausage fest and will anyone care about a Batman-less Jim Gordon/Gotham City TV show? We’re also talking about the upcoming Constantine TV show, and whether DC is building it’s own wide universe on the small screen.
More Batman? But of course, we’ve got EXCLUSIVE and surprising audio from casting sessions all throughout Batman’s long on-screen history. Eion Bailey ain’t got shit on the Godfather in spandex!
Alright, maybe you’re an acolyte of Marvel. Part of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. For you, we have our views on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and later, we discuss Avengers 2: Age of Ultron in TRAILERGASM (and also Need for Speed, bitch!)
We also realize that the name Michael Jordan is somewhat common, that Alan Moore is not a clown (sorry, Grant), why Dumb and Dumber makes us sad now, the Firefly comic, our Halloween plans, and what the world’s worst rap battle looks like.All that and MOAR (We’re contractually obligated to spell more like that. Please help.)
In unrelated nerd news, Deadline is reporting that the Farrelly Brothers are developing a sequel to their 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber, which they plan to direct after the completion of The Three Stooges. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels plan to reprise as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. Sean Anders and John Morris are set to pen the script. They co-wrote the Anders-directed Sex Drive and just co-directed the comedy I Hate You Dad starring Adam Sandler.
This new certainly doesn’t fit NB’s criteria of super heroes, Sci-Fi, or fantasy news…so why am I reporting it? Simple, Dumb and Dumber is by far one of my favorite movies. It’s immensely re-watchable. Every time it’s on TBS, or some shit, I sit in front of the TV Indian style (often naked…what, you don’t?)) and laugh my junk off. I damn near quote that flick everyday too. Why just the other day I was complaining about being bored and wanted to go somewhere, “Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. A place where beautiful women flock like the salmon of Copastrono. I’m talkin’ about a li’l place called Assspen”. Suffice to say, I love that flick and am compelled to write about it.
Now, would I welcome a sequel (FYI, I’m ignoring the existence of the prequel)? I’d like to think I would, but probably not. Carrey and Daniels are still plenty capable. Unfortunately… the Farrelly Bros are not. Give me 1 good funny movie they’ve made in the last 5 years?. On the other hand, just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!
What do you guys think? Harry and Loyd 20 years later. Could it work? How would it work?
Harry Hanrahan has brought us another video of the 100 Greatest Movie Insults of all time. Or from the past two centuries, anyway, considering before that movies didn’t really exist. There was a video of the Top 100 floating around before, but this is another one. Do you really mind? The more the merrier in my book. It’s ten minutes long but it includes a lot of the greats. Under the embedded video , we have a list of all the movies that make an appearance.
