Episode #174: Mad about Mads Mikkelsen

December 20th, 2015
BEHOLD!  The triumphant return of CHRIS!!  

Here is another episode with 3 degrees of that guy/gal.  Mads Mikkelsen has built quite an audience - known as Madsturbators - despite a limited number of films in the U.S. since the 1st one we are talking about.  Though he is a hero of Danish cinema, it was television that brought him back to many of us in recent years.  

Join us as we push our envelope further by devoting some time to talking about TV (as always, no spoilers).  Time schedules made it so we were only able to cover 2 films, but we will give you some lowdown on A Royal Affair after we get a chance to glance at it.  
For the Fannibals -  
Here is the Scott Thompson skit that Matt almost quoted correctly:  Dinosaurs
For those Bound to Bond - 
Here are links for 2 of the 3 documentaries on the 2-dvd set for Casinoarrow-10x10.png Royale:  Becoming Bond.  Bond for Real.  The 3rd is blocked by MGM, so go rent it from your local video store.. the strongest of the docs is about Bond Girls.  A fascinating look at the changing nature of the characters by the actors themselves.  Worth the time and more directly insightful than we are here in our podcast tower on gender norms.  

If you're still reading this:  good work, you're a trooper.  The music overwhelming the (obviously) American trailer for the Hunt linked up top is a perfect example of what we're talking about compared to the movie itself.

The Triforce has always avoided direct discussion of TV shows to date (though tell us if that interests you: cinemasluts@gmail.com ), but MST3K as it is known to many is the middle of the road.  It was on TV, but they watched movies..
David is a fellow MSTie & devout fan of their offshoots since the show ended in 1999.  It seemed the right time & he the right guest to talk of the tube.  MST always did Turkey Day marathons, so this year we had our own.  This one may feel a bit strange as we are chronicling the history of the series, but hey - less actor/production bio talk!!  Enjoy our tribute to a unique show with just the kinda sick (yet safe for cable) & silly humor we love.  
By the way, as if we didn't they think were cool enough, Shout Factory has put many full episodes on Youtube with annotations for what the references/jokes are from!!  Here are links for full MST3K episodes of Mitchell and Pumaman: these were 2 of the movies considered for this episode.
Here is the link for Happy Gilmore where we're pretty certain we spoke of the cool that is Kiel.

For those who haven't heard of Turkish Star Wars (oh yeah, it is real):  here is a taste - Trailer.  The whole movie can be found on youtube.  Also here's the Australian Energizer commercial.  Streuth!!

Keeping it 100 - my folder is called "Metal served with Brown Betty & Death (but mostly Death)."
