Burt demonstrates hill full range of movement as well as his coping mechanisms in this unmemorable scene.

Third Annual Feburtuary celebrations kick off with the non-steamy, non-erotic erotic thriller Tempted, a rather uninspired, Cajun-spiced reversal of Indecent Proposal with Burt Reynolds as the leathery millionaire who hires the main twinkly vampire guy from Twilight (not R-Patz, the other one) to seduce his wife (Saffron Burrows, of Wing Commander fame). Anti-plot-summary activist Malcolm Fraser joins me for the first and hopefully not only Feburtuary party of 2014.

You can purchase Malcolm‘s book Wooden Stars: Innocent Gears at Invisible Publishing. Malcolm and I will be co-guest-hosting Know It All trivia at Le Cagibi (5490 St-Laurent) next Wednesday at 8 PM (sign up at 7:30!).

Podcast #60: Terminal Countdown AKA Y2K

This is a very low quality image of the most suspenseful part of the movie.

We’re back: a dinosaur story! After a much-needed (ed. note: nope) four-month break, Why Does It Exist? makes its triumphant return with Terminal Countdown AKA Y2K, a very timely Y2K panic thriller starring the guy from Unforgiven (the very 90s-named Jaimz Woolvett) as a bowlcut-sporting hacker who teams up with geriatric marine Lou Gossett Jr. and Russian-accented Sarah Chalke to prevent the USA from exploding Russia. I’m joined by returning guest Walter J. Lyng for a trip down memory lane to a more innocent time when laptops that could access porn were mind-blowing and the lush green forests of British Columbia looked just like the Amazon.

Catch Walter’s monthly talk show Night Fight this Friday, January 24th at Mainline Theatre (3997 Saint-Laurent) in Montreal!
