Tall guy, weird clothes. First you see him, then you don't.

Scott Conant thinks this podcast is overcooked, watery, and lacking that umptiousness.

Wait, how did Paul know Ben P. wouldn't like the movie? He listened to the podcast...BEFORE IT WAS RECORDED!!!!!! :o

Ben Pearson said...

Constance, Paul knew how we felt about Big Trouble in Little China because he listened to the end of the previous episode. No conspiracy here, hah.

Team Tyler on this one. I honestly didn't know it was possible for anyone to dislike BTILC (as we/nobody in the know calls it). This is like finding out Santa and the Easter Bunny don't exist in one depressing lump.

You guys do realise that you are in the minority..... This movie is awesomely stupid. You are dead to me....

Tyler, of NJNM fame, said...

HAH HA!!

Ben P., you spoiled the ending of how much you liked or disliked the movie before the release? That's questionable storytelling and something that would likely get you kicked out of the League of Magic Magicians. You ruined the "prestige" if you will.

This site should just be called, SPOILER ALERT, SIMON IS HANS' BROTHER AND OH YEAH, NEVER SEE BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. Or Little Trouble in Big China, which I'm pretty sure is that tale about the family running out of cat to eat, and the only cat being sold within rick-shaw distance is closed on Sundays. And it's Sunday, so they have to eat rice. F&%^ you, protein!!!!
