Only the best Disasters are worth Disasterpiece Theatre!
Ever watch a movie and wonder, "HOW in the &@%! did this get made?"
Producers and Writers "pitch" ideas to studio executives and sometimes what sticks to the wall isn't sticking because of it's overwhelming quality. Sometimes the ideas are SO bad, you just have to laugh.
This is where Alex White, Stephen Granade & Brooke Fox come into the movie; in each installment Alex and Stephen pitch horrible movie ideas to each other with a little (or a lot) of help from Brooke and occassionally some really fun and interesting guests. The resulting movies idea that come out land somewhere between comic genius and disturbingly accurate portrayals of Hollywood. I can completely see Disny Channel opting one of the most recent pitches, "What's Shakin
DPT episodes tend to run quickly regardless of the actual length of the show, but this means you can get in quite a few matinees with your popcorn. Not meant to be taken seriously (unless you are a big-money producer looking for a savy team to make up some pitches for you!) the fun tone and jovial atmosphere leaves you smiling no matter how badly the pitches of the episode make you hurt.
Top marks across the board for DPT content, presentation and especially Brooke's producing. Where ever they are recording the sound is very well handled.
What else can I say?
The previous review is spot on. This is the best pitch session that I have ever came across. Ok, it's the only one but it is down right funny. Worst part is that I can see dome of these ideas being made.
I absolutely love the podcasts. Please don't stop.
