Geostorm (2017) – Filmsack Show Notes

Geostorm (2017)

INTRO

Oh hi,

and In case you missed it, The four of us who form Filmsack: Legendary Defender have spent a little over a decade watching crappy movies and defending the earth from angry acting, bad science and predictable plot points. And with that in mind, I think I am finally ready to reveal my most ingenious plan to date to fight against the Hollywood made menace that is pushing us to the brink of a TropəStorm. (Tro-puh-Storm) That’s right…a Trope’Storm…For years we have been warned of the dangers of TropəWarming. (Tro-puh-warming) Hell, Al Gore tried to warn us about the dangers years ago with a ladder and a power point presentation…but did we listen. Nope. Because he is an idiot who thinks he invented the internet. Ok…maybe he never actually said he invented the internet…but the damage is done! Cred lost. You’re out of here.

Anywho, I have been Twitter’sating (that is conversating on Twitter) with Neil Degrassi (de-grass-e) Tyson on the idea of sending up Satellites into the TropəSphere (Tro-puh-sphere) to form a sort of net over Hollywood that will shoot down any tropes before they can group up with other tropes and tip the scales to a full on Armageddon. (a much better movie )

Oh look, Degrassi responded to my idea. “Hey man, this is a just parody account of the real Neil deGrasse (de graus) Tyson…” well that is disappointing… oh..there is more “also, I am no scientist but I don’t think you can launch satellites into the troposphere (trop-o-sphere)…that is more like where airplanes hang out and stuff. Good luck.”

Well now I feel a little embarrassed. Whatever, I’m just the idea man. Randy, you son of a bitch…Thank the Space Mexican.
