You know those actors who are stunningly good, and yet always seem to end up in really crap movies that are totally undeserving of their talents?

I would like to present you, in advance of this week's episode for Ruggles of Red Gap (1935), with the original Too-Good-for-This-Movie actor, Roland Young.

I know capitalism is responsible for more egregious and harmful wastes than this, but the quarterly, company wide, 3 hour meeting is just a bonfire into which workers pitch their time.

This is so good, but now I have like 25 horror movies I want to watch, and I am a total scaredy cat about horror movies.

57 Horror Directors on the Scares That Inspired (and Traumatized) Them

The funniest thing I’ve ever seen someone do was, after a long night of drinking, at around 5am in the middle of NYC, just say “I want no part of this” and bail out of the cab at a random intersection. I still laugh about it.

Oh, damn it, can I not go one day of my life without getting the Marseillaise stuck in my head?

(No. The answer is no.)

Oh, right, is it time again?

I guess I'll just say that I'm 1/2 of a pair of best friends watching every movie ever nominated for Best Picture and then complaining about it in a weekly called The Screen Test of Time.

Mostly, I toot about and on this account, and have long, ongoing conversations about the film adaptation of Annihilation with everyone on laserdisc.party.

But, unlike last week’s episode, we did *actually* talk about the movie, even if we got a bit sidetracked...

Anyway, it’s out now on my site as well as via iTunes. itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/th

Alright, now that all that David Copperfield content is out of the way...

How about some more David Copperfield content?

This week, David has a hard time remembering names of real life people, I have a hard time remembering names of characters, and there may or may not be evidence of time travel dropped in this movie (and Dickens’s book). Also, we discuss Hugh Dancy’s relationship to the philosophy of moral particularism and Taylor Swift’s “Most For The PR” Boyfriend.
