#75 Dragonslayer (fixed)

Dragonslayer DT80s
Out-of-context quote from this episode: “If I could get a title card instead of a plane trip, I would!”

Bill Idol’s crossover Game of Thrones hit, we alienate our audience in under a minute, George R.R. Martin has no pages and never will, Dragonslayer has a ridiculous false ending, extremely casual magic abounds, Tripp pitches a more dystopian Hunger Games, this movie becomes medieval Just One of The Guys, Andrew makes the movie way more interesting with just a small change, people dance clockwise AND counterclockwise, Valerian changes her sex at age 18 and no one bats an eye, the patriarchy is in desperate need of smashing, the blacksmith sits on a massive, useful weapon FOREVER, and the movie is 20 minutes too long! Oh, and the magic was inside us the whole time.

All this and more!

Spiderman

Out-of-context-quote from this episode: “The only way to put this costume on would be to stretch the neck hole big enough for your entire body to fit through.”

We watched Spider-Man S01E18 The Capture of Captain America and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends S3E07 The X-Men Adventure to celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming!

In this episode: Friends is a reboot of Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Spider-Man is less white and homogenized than Friends, Spider-Man has comics in universe, J.K. Simmons should ALWAYS be J. Jonah Jameson, J. Jonah Jameson has a Hitler mustache? Tripp does some hardcore backpedaling, The dangers of dressing as The Babadook, The Babadook fan-cast is created, cheap animation is cheap, Spider-Man runs out of film and is bad at his job, Spider-Man desecrates the American flag, Red Skull drives a penis ship, Spider-Man uses a web as a parachute, Tripp does or doesn’t do gay stuff? We demand answers from Joss Whedon, Spidey has some pals, Professor X is a Gremlin/Cobra Commander, Frank Welker arrives again!, an in-depth conversation about c-level X-Men, Professor X does some weird mind probing, Cyclops can adjust his eyes like a toast-meter, Why is there a maze of madness? Tripp wants to have relations with Aunt Mae, provided she’s not grandma age, and so much more!

Listen!
