Episode #145 – R.I.P.D.

We ease Elliott back into the Flop House groove with a movie right in our wheelhouse: the Men in Black/Ghostbusters-lite disaster R.I.P.D. Meanwhile Dan introduces the concept of ghost hats, Elliott uses the new recording space for its foley possibilities, Stu rails against shark-drummer racism, and the whole gang does their impeccable Boston accents.

    “He gets sucked up in some kind of vortex of souls. A ‘soular vortex’ if you will.”
    “Just so you know, I absolutely won’t. Also: Boo!”

    There is at least one Hong Kong movie about afterlife police tasked with arresting and removing escaped souls;in the English subtitles of the one I saw, they’re called ‘Hell Cops’.

    Why the whole rigamarole:
    0.) The whole process is there to reform the dead bent cops.
    1.) Mediaeval Catholic theologians came up with an explanation for why God needs angels; they called in (in Latin) the Principle of Heavenly Economy, and I’ve been told it’s basically ‘God does things in really round-about ways to prove He can pull it off.’.
