Episode #184 – Drive Hard

Take two faded stars, put them in an Aussie C-picture, and encourage them to improvise wildly, and what do you get? The oddly compelling Drive Hard. Meanwhile Elliott improves various movies by adding a little vitamin C(age), Dan reveals what the H.P. in H.P. Lovecraft stands for, and Stuart almost gets Billy Joel lyrics right.

    Pandas are totally bears. It’s proven genetically. You’re thinking of Koalas that aren’t bears. Actually you probably aren’t but they’re not and pandas are.

    • UserGoogol says:

      There’s been disputes over the years whether pandas are more closely related to bears or raccoons, although recent genetic testing implies they’re bears, although a separate branch from other bears.

  2. Gzoref says:

    Saw the trailer for this. Looks like a comedy/action version of Drive, where the “driver” is unaware of what the hell he is doing.

    Btw, loved you guys, Elliot and Dan, on The Daily Show last night. I wish when they showed more writers, like Hallie.

  3. Dave says:

    Big Country was from Scotland.

  4. Christy says:

    I think Jimmy Stewart H.P. Lovecraft is the funniest thing Ive ever heard! You guys really need to do a Lovecraftian movie on the podcast, they are all pretty terrible.

  5. B. Jackson says:

    So this movie’s a secret remake of Charlie Varrick?

  6. Mike says:

    Hi guys,

    On July 16th, 2014, I wrote a complaint about how you guys took 15 minutes to give the movie summary of “Upside Down” and how I was put off from your podcast. It was only my 2nd podcast of the flophouse, neither of which I think I’d finished.

    Recently I gave your show another try and fell for it “mad hard” as the kids say. Last week, I was listening to the July 26, 2014 “Legend of Hercules” episode and to my eternal shame I heard you mention my comment…twice.

    I just listened to your The Quiet Ones episode which took over 35 minutes to give a summary, with like “Upside Down” included the main star of the show, Aphrodite (human name Hallie Haglund) though why wouldn’t, she’s awesome!

    I guess I’m just trying to say, I learned not to burn bridges cause sometimes you end up becoming it’s biggest fans and….vice versa?

    Much praise,

    Mike(not really my name).

  7. Mike says:

    And I took 15 minutes to write and edit that comment and still see 2 or more typos…well, like Stewart always says, at least I still have a huge d**k.

  8. Kathy M says:

    This might be my favorite episode yet. Not only do you go through the Billy Joel catalog in the most creative way possible, but you mentioned my boys, Duran Duran! I LOVE you three!

  9. Salacious Trump says:

    There are far too many choices for driving these days: drive angry, drive hard, drive, minnie driver. I wish they would limit my selections…

  10. Kathy M says:

    Sorry if this posts twice…but I just had to say that this is for sure my favorite episode yet. I tried to post that before just after the Billy Joel catalog was updated marvelously, for that reason and for the mention of my boys, Duran Duran. But now, I’m hearing the mash up of letter songs to Australian 80’s bands. Amazing. You guys are just amazing. I’m pretty sure I’m in love with you guys.

    Checking the internet for Wesley Snipe Ketchup Rolls did not bear much fruit, so I tried Wesley Snipe “catsup” Rolls instead, but it just kinda of reversed the order of the hits. A bit disappointing. I’d definitely kick in a few space bucks to get in on the ground floor of this craze sure to be sweeping the grocery store shelves soon – very soon. If this whole ketchup/catsup roll thing re-establishes Wesley’s financial fortunes, do you think it could be expanded to other kind of rolls, or other kind or fillings?

    P.S. Substituting “roles” for “rolls” did get me a link to the avclub review of your episode, so I guess it kind of worked.

    “Are you driving hard or hardly driving?”
    “How drunk are you?!?”
    “Pretty drunk.”
