As we try to figure out this critical failure of a film, we laugh at the incredibly poor visual effects, Raiden: the God of 90’s Boybands, a score of single scene character cameos, and we compare our opinions of the video game movie genre with our online followers.

Episode 58: Haywire

For Lauren’s pick for Bad Movie Month, she tries to outdo Greg’s love for Bad Movies with 2011’s Haywire. As we try to make sense out of this half-baked movie, we discuss the pros and cons of casting an MMA fighter to act in a movie, overly convoluted and poorly executed revenge plans, and how no matter how many big-name actors you throw into a movie, it can’t make up for a plot and story that is so full of holes that makes it nearly unwatchable.

Our next time travel movie is 2013’s About Time. As we discuss this film with a unique method and scope of time travel we discuss how the protagonist Tim could have used his powers, Greg has a serious misunderstanding about the rules of the film and together we ask, “Is it cheating if it’s in an alternate timeline?”

For this Double Feature, Lauren and Greg get their heads examined with the psychiatric films Don Juan DeMarco and K-Pax. In our conversations, we discuss the process of mentally separating movies from their actors, when psychiatrists cross the line with their patients, and for each film, we dive deeply into the question: Is the protagonist for real or just crazy?
