123: At the Movies



Get yourself some popcorn and fake butter topping and get ready for an episode all about the silver screen! Like easter eggs? Then you'll love learning about the most famous and popular sound effect that appears in almost every major film. Dana's got a film crew quiz, and Chris brings back a movie quote challenge (this time, it's not a trick!). Ever heard of TRANSMORPHERS? Or ATLANTIC RIM? Karen dives into the weird world of "mockbusters." And in the early days of Hollywood, how did they move from silent movies to talkies? And take Colin's "I Know That Guy!" actor challenge.

All GJBers and fans need to know: There's suddenly competition to Kopi Luwak coffee, i.e. Civet-Poop Coffee. One man is getting elephants in on the act.

I am suddenly so happy that I don't drink the stuff, pooped or otherwise.

Umm actually...."I Am Legend" was not based on The Omega Man, but Omega Man was based on the short story/novella "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson which of course is the same source material for the Will Smith movie.

You guys are great! When you run out of good ideas, you could make a quiz based on clever episode names of TV series, e. g. guess the series based on the names of three episodes. "The electron doesn't fall far from the nucleus, Buzz Beer, There's no scientific name for a show about god" (The Drew Carey Show). "For Whom the Skell Turns, Emission Accomplished, Guns and Rosaries, Travels with Andy" (NYPD Blue). "Trials and Tibble-ations, Rules of Acquisition, In the Hands of the Prophets" (ST DS-9). "Who's Vod Kanockers?, Go East on Sunset Until you Reach the Gates of Hell, " (2 1/2 Men). "Grade School Confidential, There's No Disgrace Like Home, Homer's Odyssey" (Simsons).
