Space Jam

This week on At Least You Tried Jonathan and Cat sat down and watched the 90s classic(?) Space Jam. We got up and slammed and were then welcomed to the jam.

For a movie that everyone remembers so fondly this film is definitely not without it’s flaws. Why is Lola bunny so sexualized in the movie? Why are there multiple references to movies like Pulp Fiction that kids would never catch? and why is the main villain of the movie, played by Danny DeVito 54th billed on IMDB?!

Also in this episode
– Why you should never look too hard at still frames of a movie
– Daffy Duck is Cat’s inner monologue
and
– Cat catches on that Michael Jordan‘s movie dog has a clever pun name

All this and more on this week’s episode of At Least You Tried…

Kazaam

When you’re a kid you see everything through rose tinted glasses. The world is wonderful and full of cherished memories waiting to be made. It’s only when we revisit them as adults that we can see things for how they truly are: few are gems, some are decent, but most…. most are mediocre and forgettable. This is case with Kazaam.

We decided it was time we revisit Shaquille O’Neal‘s brief stint as an actor/ rapper and god was it painful. Is it possible for Max to be a bigger pain in the ass to every other character in the movie? (It isn’t) How does “I’d like junk food from here to the sky!” translate to raining hamburgers up to your knees? and more importantly how exactly do you “Green eggs and ham it”?

Join us this week on At Least You Tried as we forget the troubles of the outside world and get lost in some trash for awhile

Side note: If you want to scare yourself check out how Francis Capra, who played Max, looks now

Mazes and Monsters

This week Jonathan and Jake watched a little known “After school special” about the dangers of fantasy role playing called Mazes and Monsters. Why would we bother you may ask? It just happens to be Tom Hanks first leading role and it’s a fucking ridiculous ride.

Join us as we are treated to Tom Hanks slowly drifting into insanity and becoming his character “Pardue the holy man”, a child prodigy with a passion for hats, and an honest to God shanking.

A film that makes LARPing actually look kinda fun and then scary as hell.

Fun ALYT drinking game: Take a drink every time Jay Jay switches hats and succumb to alcohol poisoning halfway through the movie!
