The untimely death of Bill Paxton caused the Bros to tackle U-571, a light-weight WWII submarine movie.

The film isn’t great but the resulting discussion was fun.

Bill Paxton filmography starts at 28:30

Topics include: watching a movie in a theater by oneself, how a rousing score changes your movie, the historical accuracy of Jon Bon Jovi movies, 80’s New Wave music, the movie Hardware, the Academy Awards gaffe, new cars, daddy’s movie request, and the evils of Comcast

Sicario gets a 5 star rating from Drew and Eric and a bit less from J, though all agree the score is fantastic. Drew suggests a second viewing would enhance the experience.

Alaskan escapes kidnappers in Mexico

Posted: Tuesday, October 10, 2006 By The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage woman kidnapped from a beach home in Mexico escaped by slipping into a dark jungle and walking to a town. Tammy Griffin, 46, a regional manager for The Hotel Group, slashed her feet during her flight but was not seriously hurt, her three children said Sunday.

The 5-foot-4, 120-pound Griffin is a grandmother and big game hunter in Alaska. She phoned her children Saturday from Mexico to tell them what happened, they told the Anchorage Daily News.

They had not had time to worry - she escaped before they knew she had been kidnapped from a beach home near Zihuatanejo, a popular tourist destination on Mexico's west coast.

She escaped using survival savvy learned from growing up in Alaska and hunting, her family said. She has killed at least one black bear and several moose and deer, her son said. "She's a survivor. She's tough as hell," said Taylor Tanner, 20, at the family's home in East Anchorage.

 

Tammy Griffin and her husband, Mike, 52, travel often to Mexico. The ordeal began Thursday night at about 8 p.m., said Amanda Aguilar, 28, of Eagle River, Griffin's oldest child. Several kidnappers and perhaps as many as five had robbed a couple in a home near the Griffin's residence. They walked that couple at gunpoint to the Griffin's vacation home, Aguilar said.

Mike Griffin walked outside and the men thrust rifles in his face, ordered him in the house and struck him, Aguilar said. Tammy Griffin was asleep in a bedroom. Griffin told KTUU-TV that she heard her husband yell that they were being robbed. A gunman ordered her into the living room, pointed a gun at Mike Griffin's head, tied him up and blindfolded him.

The men grabbed cash, guns, a laptop computer, a DVD player, tools, cash and other items of value. They said they did not have enough and would take Griffin for ransom, she said.

Leaving a cell phone behind for Mike Griffin to arrange a ransom, they drove off in the Griffin's rental car. The kidnappers met up with other men, left the car and drove to a remote area in the mountains about 45 minutes away. After walking deeper into the jungle, they gave Tammy Griffin a mat and rested on the jungle floor.

There were as many as seven men in all and they took turns watching her. Her children said she remained submissive but confident, refusing to cry. "She just did what they asked her to do, which is why they never tied her up," Aguilar said. "They figured a petite redheaded white girl isn't going to run into the jungle."

They did not blindfold her, and Griffin interpreted that as a sign they were planning to kill her. "She knew running was her best chance of survival," Tanner said.

 

About 3 a.m., when her guard fell asleep, Tammy quietly walked away, Aguilar said. In her escape, wearing flip-flop sandals, she crashed through brush and spider webs, stopping to listen often but never hearing pursuers, Aguilar said.

She found a creek and followed it, knowing it would flow to the coast and coastal highway. After the sun came up, she reached a town and walked into a small store. The shop owners gave her a calling card to dial police, Aguilar said

Mike Griffin, who owns Aurora Construction services, was not planning to return to Anchorage for a month. He's building onto the couple's vacation home, Aguilar said. Tammy, who is staying with friends, will stick around for another week to work with the U.S. embassy and local officials to find her abductors.

NIACW 187 Network

In the age of infotainment and President Trump, a film like Network might not seem so satirical but in 1976 it was the darkest of satires and a damning criticism of “modern” journalism.

 

It’s one of Brother E’s favorite films but Brother J thought it didn’t translate to a modern audience.

 

We have a fun discussion about media luminaries such as: Glenn Beck, Christine O’Donnell, Bill Maher, Dan Savage, Michael Savage, Alex Jones, Steve Bannon, President Trump, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Shepard Smith, Nancy Grace, and Jenny Jones. Brother J shares a theory on framing beach scenes.

 

In housekeeping we discuss: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Trolls, Inside Out, The Butterfly Effect, Asylum Blackout, Perkins 14, and Darling.

NIACW 186 Grosse Pointe Blank

Grosse Pointe Blank is full of great actors quipping fun lines amidst solid action sequences set to late 80’s music. What’s not to love?

Correction: Eric mentions that the director, George Armitage, also directed 1971’s “Private Duty Nurses,” which Eric described as a “Nudie Cutie” movie. Upon further review it is probably better described as a “Sexploitation” movie.

In housekeeping we discuss Rogue One, The Accountant, House of 1000 Corpses, Dawn of the Dead, and Exorcist III. We also recommend the podcasts: “Monster Party” and “In the Dark.”

NIACW 185 Octopussy

Octopussy proves that one can forgive a lot of goofiness if the pacing is fast enough. It has clowns, twins, an all-girl ninja force, a Faberge egg, elephants, a tiger, a submarine that looks like a crocodile, a nuclear bomb, and a crazy Russian general but it’s still fairly grounded to reality.

Also: true elevator horror story

Orlando Sentinel:

Elevator Crushes Woman Caught Between Floors

October 1, 1991 ANCHORAGE, ALASKA —

A woman was crushed in a parking garage elevator as fellow passengers tried to save her. The woman was caught Sunday between floors of the J.C. Penney Co. parking garage elevator. She was getting on when the elevator started going up and she slipped, police said. ''As she stepped on the elevator, it suddenly started to go up,'' police Lt. Bill Gaither said. ''There was no one standing at the control panel, and the doors stayed open.'' The woman dangled half on and half off the elevator and was crushed as five other passengers frantically pressed buttons to save her, Gaither said.

NIACW 184 Soapdish

Soapdish has an all-star cast but, while Eric and J liked revisiting it, Drew thought it was weak sauce.

Later we pour one out for Miguel Ferrer (RIP), brother J suggests how best to watch Twin Peaks, and Eric discusses some movies he watched this week: The Man Who Wasn’t There, Diabolique 1955 and Diabolique 1996, and The Russian Woodpecker.

NIACW 183 The Big Lebowski

Another Coen Brothers movie that Brothers E and J love but Drew dislikes intensely, the Big Lebowski is chock full of quotables.

This episode has a fair amount of meandering so be prepared. We discuss, among other things, cutting the cable cord and Carrie Fisher’s virginity.

Housekeeping starts at 1:15:00

The Big Lebowski “Fuck” count:

260 “fuck”s, 117 minutes of movie. 2.22 fucks per minute

Compare to Wolf of Wall Street:

569 fucks in 180 minutes for a 3.16 fucks per minute which is the top of mainstream films.

Goodwill Hunting and Scarface have 1.22 and 1.21 fucks per minute

The Grey has 1.3 fucks per minute (and is a Christian film, right?)

NIACW 182 Maggie

Maggie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, is a good first effort for director Henry Hobson.  It’s not perfect but it’s certainly interesting.

Drew and Eric also discuss the wonderful Carrie Fisher, rest in peace.

Happy New Year!
