s there a movie you've watched an embarrassingly amount of times?
Mine is Titan A.E. I watched that something along the lines of 20 times throughout my life. It was only recently that I found out that the main characters were voiced by Matt Damon and Drew Barrymore when I watched it this year on Netflix streaming which brings me to my second question.
Is hiring expensive and well-known actors for animated movies really worth the percentage of the budget they take up?
David Warner will always be best known by me for his amazing turn as Jon Irenicus from Baldur's Gate 2, but I understand that he has quite a respectable film career as well. On the other hand: he was in the MST3K classic exercise in fantasy misery "Quest of the Delta Knights," playing not only the Obi-Wan Kenobi-type mentor, but the main villain as well.
What are your guys' favorite examples of a well-respected/beloved actor shamelessly slumming it?
Rorie - Jeremy Irons in dungeons and dragons
Rorie - Also In the name of the king, Burt Rennolyds, Ray Leota, Jason Staham,
Alex - David Warner in Teenage Mutant hero turtles
Alex - Ben kingsley in blood ring
Rorie - Roul Julia in street fighter

Hey Alex and Rorie, I'm a pretty recent Star Trek fan I love the J.J.Abrams movie, Wrath of Khan, and Voyage Home and have just recently started The Next Generation so far the first season is a bit of a slow burn but I keep hearing from people that it only gets better so I have decided to persevere. So I just wanted to ask what is your personal favorite Star Trek movie, TV series, and character if you can think of one on the spot. Thanks
Rorie - Movie, I really love 6
Alex - My top 5 are
Alex - Wrath
Alex - undiscovered country
Alex - first contact
Alex - voyage home
Alex - the toss up between the first and generations
Alex - As for the series its TNG all the way for me.
Rorie - As for fav characters its always the characters sturggling to be human. Spock, odo, data
Rorie - I love the cold war analogue between Odo and garrick
Rorie - Um... I could see him doing something.
Alex - I think we are giving Tom Six way to much credit as a creative mind. He is a shock jock
Alex - he has no statement.
I did a little research and discovered that Real Steel had a better domestic box office opening than Warrior, The Fighter, and Rocky Balboa. Does this mean when it comes to movies about things getting punched in the face people favor robot face punching over human face punching?
Thanks and keep up the good work.
Rorie - The better analogy is Transformers. People like seeing robot on robot violence
Alex - People love boxing and pro wrestling.
Alex - I dont think the MMA crowd are much into the melodrama
Rorie - (butting in) and thats why they didn't sell that
Rorie - Sorry for interrupting
Alex - Thats ok
Rorie - they sold the film as the two warring brothers
Alex - If you look at moneyball, its doing well because its not a traditional sports movie
