They talked about The Town with Ben Affleck, S.W.A.T and Hansel and Gretal: Witch Hunters, which Howard and Jeremy both said they had thought it was a good movie, and the Avengers movies.

JD Tweeted: A guy almost beat another man with pots and pans last night, so try telling me there are better reality shows than “Big Brother.”  and This week’s President Show was so great. The commentary/satire is some of the best on TV today.  and New “Curb” sounds like it could be epic.” and then… “Dunkirk” in 70 mm IMAX is fucking awesome.

On the WUS, Gary said if he didn’t have any desire for sex, he imagines his life would be like the movie Limitless. Opening to Tuesday’s show was a Baba Booey song parody from Game of Thrones.

Robin said she liked the show Shameless, and thought Howard would too, but he’s never seen it. Robert Pattinson was in studio, plugging his latest movie Good Time. Howard said it was a great movie; the guy’s such a bumbling crook. He was in the Twilight movies, as well as one of the Harry Potter movies.  (the 4th one), and Little Ashes.

Martin Landau died over the weekend. Howard’s said his favorite performance of his was in Ed Wood. He’d started in the original TV series Mission: Impossible.

He was also in North by NorthwestEntourage, a movie that coming out soon, The Last Poker Game, Tucker, and a Woody Allen film, Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Howard got to see the new Planet of the Apes movie, War for the Planet of the Apes and loved it. Says he loves talking apes, especially Caesar. He gives it a big thumbs up.

Jimmy Iovine was in studio to plug the documentary about him, The Defiant Ones on HBO. Howard said he watched all 4 episodes and that it was great.

Robin said Jimmy was like Zelig; he was around with every big star.

Week of 6.5.17

Howard and Robin both haven’t seen the new Wonder Woman, but are anxious to see it. Howard thinks having a woman director would give the movie more heart. He loved Betty Thomas directing his movie.

Howard said she really needs to see it.

Week of 5.15.17

Howard and Robin both watched the documentary Robert Klein Still Can’t Stop His Leg. They loved it. Said that Robert Klein was one of the best comedians ever. He kind of changed how stand-up was done by telling personal stories instead of quick jokes. Howard said it was directed by Marshall Fine, a long time film critic who finally made a movie that nobody will see. They said it was funny, but was also kind of sad, because he looks so old now, and he should be more revered, instead of almost forgotten. They said he teaches kids how to be funny now.

Howard says the Gilbert Gottfried documentary, Gilbert,  is really good. Howard feels bad for Richard Christy having a cameo appearance on Guardians on the Galaxy sequel. He says they’re goofing on him. He feels the same way about Stan Lee. He thinks by putting him in every movie, he looks like a senile old man, rather than the genius he was for creating all these characters. Howard said the MTV Movie Awards gave the best kiss award to the two guys who kiss in Moonlight. Robin said she didn’t agree and that the hottest kiss is in Sense8.

Then he talked about how great a life men have, as even in the Steven Hawkins movie, The Theory of Everything. He’s disabled and still  leaves his wife for a nurse. On the WUS, they said the first 3 episodes of Handmaid’s Tale was really good.

Robin said he was wearing a jacket, so she’s not sure that was all muscle, but Howard is sure it was.

Howard said watching George Takei petting Jason Ellis’ penis reminded him of Dr. Evil petting his cat from Austin Powers. Robin said the Bee Gees Tribute Show was really good. Howard said he liked the Bee Gees but could never get into their Saturday Night Fever and other disco hits. It was like a movie where aliens took the Bee Gees and replaced them with these guys in white suits. Robin said John Travolta told stories about it being his idea to have the song Staying Alive play while he was walking. Howard doesn’t buy it. Even if it was true, it was a night about the Bee Gees, not John Travolta.

Howard said he was watching The Sopranos with his headphones and laughing and Beth told him he was being annoying. Fred played the audio of Robert De Niro laughing in Cape Fear, and Howard said he wasn’t laughing like that at all. Gary asked if he knew what the movie was that De Niro was laughing like a maniac watching, and it was Problem Child, which Robin said is probably one of the least funny movies ever. Howard fell asleep before the season finale of Watching Dead. Robin said she did see it, but had trouble sleeping afterward.

Hank Azaria was in studio to talk about his new series Brookmire. He does numerous voices on the Simpsons, starting out with Mo the Bartender.

Week of 3.27.17

Talking about the story that Anthonly Weiner’s wife is taking him back again, Howard says if you want to see a great documentary about how disturbing Anthony Weiner is, watch Weiner.

Jason loved it, but Memet hated it.

Scarlett Johansson was in studio to plug Ghost in the Shell. Howard has already seen it and said he loved it. She said her first role big role was in North.

He and Keith almost get into a fist fight, but Richards loved being with him anyway. Howard said the best use of Chuck Berry’s music in a movie is from Pulp Fiction , John Travolta’s and Uma Thurman’s dance scene, and Back to the Future where Michael J.

Talk of Tiny Furniture and Girls. Howard and Robin both saw HBO’s Becoming Warren Buffett and thought it was really good.

Howard talking about Johnny Depp going broke, and all the bad movies he’ll have to do now: Pirates of the Caribbean 14, Sharknado 7, Mighty Ducks 12… Talking of Memet’s locking himself away, Howard said he would be like Lon Chaney in the Wolf Man chaining himself to his chair overnight. Ralph and Robin both really liked Sully. They said it was really good, but agreed with a pilot that was on the phone that he wasn’t a hero for what he did; all pilots are trained to handle that situation, and he was just doing his job.

Howard and Robin said they loved him in Braveheart, but this guy’s a monster. Howard said Casey Affleck’s movie Manchester By the Sea is depressing, and Robin shouldn’t watch.

Week of 1.3.17 Monday NY Holiday, Back Live on Tuesday

Robin said she liked Rogue One. Howard asked Robin what the most romantic movie ever, and she said When Harry Met Sally. He said, no, it was Pretty Woman. It has all the seduction scenes and it’s great. Robin said it’s a good movie, but it’s so unrealistic. It’s not what real hookers look like. Real hookers look like Benjy or Sumner Redstone, not Julia Roberts. Robin said businessmen don’t look like Richard Gere, either; they look like either Benjy or Sumner Redstone, too. Howard said they should remake the movie with Benjy playing both the male and female roles. Howard said the girls on the new Bachelor all have that vocal fry. “Jessie Ventura” took over Gary’s office and said that Laurence Fishburn has been giving us messages through Matrix and Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

Week of 11.26.16 Back from Vacation

Howard was ranting about how bad things were for poor women before abortion was made legal. Robin said if you want to know how bad it was, watch the movie Vera Drake. Howard said he can’t watch that. He said women of means have always had a way to get an abortion, but poor women had no choice but to go to somewhere where they risked their lives to get one, and it’s crazy that they’re trying to make abortion illegal again. Howard said he was interviewed for a documentary made about Dr. John Sarno called All The Rage. He said that everyone needs to see it because America is in a epidemic of pain. Howard again talked about watching the entire The Sopranos again and Beth found him laughing like a lunatic like Robert DeNiro in Cape Fear.
