…And Another Thing About Barb Wire

As often happens on the podcast, I forgot something until after we were done recording. This time, I have more to add about the suck that is Barb Wire.

First off, I wish I had grabbed the trailer audio BEFORE we recorded. YOu may have noticed that it didn’t have a lot of talking. Observe:

Her acting was SO bad they only dared to put two of her spoken lines in the trailer! Even then, when she says, “Don’t…call me babe.” It sounds less “bad ass” and more “awkward class presentation.”

The other thing is the main bad guy. The one I mentioned says “This reminds me of my favorite song, ‘I Got You Babe*'” before Barb Wire gives her super-awesome catch phrase again. What I failed to mention is that for most of the movie, he is an ice cold, emotionless evil guy. But then in the last act some one flipped a switch on that dude and he went bonkers! Just over the top acting that Jim Carrey would be proud of…or maybe ashamed of. I’m not quite sure.

Okay…that’s it. Not ground breaking but two more jabs at that movie before we rip the next batch of flicks a new one. Sooner or later we’re going to have to stop round one and start pitting the winners against each other. So if there’s a bad movie you think needs to be in this contest, be sure and let us know before it’s too late.

*Also Andy’s joke, “Our land could be decimated by civil war, it would still not remove from our consciousness the wonder and majesty that is Sonny and Cher,” deserved a much bigger laugh than it got. I laughed quite heartily when I was editing the show together. Way to go, Andy!

    Adam Sandler’s Going Overboard is definitely the worst movie ever. It’s so bad, it prob only shouldn’t count!

    Again, I submit either the first or second Power Rangers movie and the second Mortal Kombat movie to go head to head. I’m sure both could be found on Netflix, at least, last time I checked….a few years ago.
