TOTP - Top Ten Things I Am Getting Tired Of In Movies

Fed up of Hollywood churning out the same old films time and time again? Well pay attention to Robs list of the ten things we are all getting tired of in movies:-

  • 10 - Quentin Tarantino
  • 9 - Stereotypical music
  • 8 - Pixar
  • 7 - Trying to be other films
  • 6 - Lack of decent locations
  • 5 - tom hanks
  • 4 - Making everything like a music video
  • 3 - Wire work
  • 2 - Predictable story lines
  • 1 - Too many computer graphics

Also mentioned on this show was a video Rob made at a recent podcasting convention which you can download the mp4 file here (its a 200 meg file so just right click as choose 'Save As...' to copy it to your computer).

Got a top ten list for us? Then send us an email to topofthepods@gmail.com.

Just want to say that the automated skype gag was hilarious. Well done to the caller - he was very patient and obviously recognised the humour!

More please!

Rob, you should of got in front of the camera a bit, Top Of The Pods wasn't even mentioned. The video is like a hall of fame of everyone that has been on your show, how did you get them on your bill eh? Anyway, great camera skills. ha!

The Skype waiting thing IS genius.
Rob, you have no idea how creative you are, sir.
Kudos.

Amazing show, getting back on track to (almost) daily lists again

By the way, the Skype thing is absolutely hilarious! You should definitely play more on future shows.

Okay, okay ... the show was a bit raunchy, but I enjoyed it immensely! Then again, I'm an adult ... then again, that's probably worse.
Anyway, thanks for the show. I've been a listener since November of 2005 and will NOT abandon you two!

Also, the addition of Scott now and then is great, he fits fabulously into the mayhem. Ciao gents ;-D

Merry Christmas to Rob, Jon, their families and all the dedicated Top Of The Pods listeners. Cheers, Richard

Melissa said...
