Sci-Fi Party Line #232 Sixth Annual Turd Off for 2015

scifipartyline-turd-off-2015

The most favorite Sci-Fi Party Line tradition is back!

Welcome to our SIXTH ANNUAL TURD OFF!

We mention several terrible films such as Vice, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, 400 Days, Robot Overlords, Teenage Mutant Ninja, and more but they didn’t make the Official Turd List because they weren’t popular enough and/or had no expectation of being epic.

These are the criteria that we base our decision:
1) Squandered Effects: Did they have a budget and use SFX in a meaningful way to advance the story or were SFX not compelling and misused/underutilized given the budget of the film.
2) Acting?: The acting contribute to the enjoyment of the film or was it painful to watch? Did the casting make sense for the film?
3) Turdage Per Dollar: Was there a big budget and nothing to show for it? Did they use the budget to create an effective film or was it wasted?
4) Fury Up On Exit: Were you pissed off when you were done watching this film. Do you still have residual fury when you talk about it.
5) Which Sequel Would Offend the Least?: Do you want a sequel? Could you tolerate a sequel:

2015 Official Turd List

Fantastic Four – $120M Production Budget, $56M Domestic Gross, $168M International — Made the list because it is a Marvel property and should live up to Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Agents of SHEILD, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones.

Jupiter Ascending – $176M Production Budget, $47M Domestic Gross, $176M International — Made the list because it was a highly anticipated project from the Wachowski’s.

Terminator: Genisys – $155M Production Budget, $89M Domestic Gross, $350 International — Made the list because it brought back Arnold Schwartznegger as the Terminator and starred Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney.

“Blanded to DEATH!”
– Carl (@robominister)

“That was the worst type of anything that you could have done, ever!”
– Cat (@fancyfembot)

Films of Turds Past
2010 Last Airbender vs. Skyline*
2011 Cowboys & Aliens vs. Transformers: Dark of the Moon*
2012 Branded* vs. Lockout
2013 After Earth* vs. RIPD and The Host vs. Gallowwalkers
2014 The Signal vs. Transformers: Age of Extinction*

*Winners of past Turd Offs

– Cat (@fancyfembot)

SyFy Friday is back strong! Cat and Carl discuss the glorious return of science fiction to the SyFy channel and the exciting new Friday shows: Defiance, Killjoys (@1:07:00), and Dark Matter(@1:26:13).

Sci-Fi Party Line #222 Game of Thrones – SHAME!

cersei-must-atone-for-her-sins-by-taking

“If I sound excited that’s because Cat’s back on board with ‘Game of Thrones’ being the best show ever!”
– Cat (@fancyfembot)

“Oh yeah, he has tons of bastards…”
– Eric (@BullittWHO)

“Reek decided to grow some balls…”
– Hanako (@hmrpotter)

“The apocalypse is working out for some of us.”
– Carl (@robominister)

“I don’t think it was like a test that was forseen by the gods or presented like ‘here comes the Kobayashi Maru‘.”
– Eric (@BullittWHO)

“There was room on the dragon for a couple of more people.”
– Carl (@robominister)

Strap in folks! This episode is a WHOPPING THREE HOURS and perhaps our longest show yet!

Today’s crew is Hanako, Carl, Eric, and Cat. In today’s episode we talk about the child-burning, dragon-flying, castle-jumping, tree-hanging, battle-losing, oath-keeping, poison-kissing, shame-walking, bastard-stabbing, epic-awesomeness that is Game of Thrones. Cat gets a chance to gloat. Hanako gets a chance to eat crow. Eric reveals that he’s been in a situation similar to Cersei. Carl is certain that Tussin will easily heal the majority of the non-deaths we saw on the finale and that Jon Snow “can walk it off”. We tease @newmutant and praised @ronycamille for giving us the epic Shame! soundbites that we turned into ringtones. We also gave shout outs to Adam F, Alex A, Dominic W, Robert Y, David M, Christina K, Nikki P, Charles, RoddyKat, and Mark C to thank them for always giving feedback on our show.

Game of Thrones airs on Sundays 10/9 on HBO.

Sci-Fi Party Line #220 Game of Thrones – Hardhome

Jon-Snow-in-a-boat-Official-HBO

“I have a vagina and if I see a woman being raped, I’m gonna have a response.”
– Cat (@fancyfembot)

“They have done one too many rape scenes and it’s getting out of hand but I’m trying to keep an open mind that the story has to go somewhere.”
– Hanako (@hmrpotter)

“The only thing I have vitriol for this year … is hate-watching Flash and Arrow.”
– Eric (@BullittWHO)

“When King Snake’s … head got crushed like a grape, I think I blinked more than usual.”
– Eric (@BullittWHO)

“Meanwhile, frickin’ zombies.”
– Carl (@robominister)

“They could have spent a couple of more bucks on some of those effects. I was waiting for Jon Snow to turn around and say ‘Get some’.”
– Carl (@robominister)

And now HBO presents World War Z on ice.

Today’s crew is Hanako, Carl, Eric, and Cat. In today’s episode we talk about rape, murder, battles, and controversy of Game of Thrones – A Song of Fire and Ice. It’s an intense conversation from beginning to end and there is a language alert because has all the feels. At the 56:16 mark through the 1:02:04 mark we talk book spoilers that may have major implications for characters on the show – but it is all speculation.

Shawarma begins at 1:56:25 which includes Carl moaning about the lack of podcasts being released yet doesn’t lift a finger to help, iZombie complaints, and Eric and Hanako wax about Twilight, yes, you read that right, Twilight.

 
Game of Thrones airs on Sundays 10/9 on HBO.
