Half in the Bag is back! Since they're not going to the theater to see the 1.5 movies that have actually been released recently, Mike and Jay instead talk about a couple of popular streaming options, the Borat sequel and The Haunting of Bly Manor. RIP Movie Theaters.

Sorry guys but you're wrong in the last bit about the South Park issue, and it's maybe an age thing. Loads of kids my age (I'm 30) grew up watching South Park, younger than they probably should have, but it was majorly popular and a cartoon, so it snuck under the radar or was just ignored by a lot of parents. I heard kids parroting the antisemitic jokes on the playground constantly, in spite of (or perhaps because) nobody where I grew up had probably ever met a Jewish person. It normalized it. Now we've got loads of people who became sympathetic with far-right ideology and there's a very consistent through-line that a lot of them got into it with jokes and memes to start, and it's hard to ignore that South Park primed them for accepting those as humorous. I ain't gonna go hard blaming the Parkers for that shit, but it's undeniable that it had a very real effect and contributed to the amount of antisemitism online, especially in the younger demographic. As for idolizing Cartman, yes, some people did. A lot of friend groups have that asshole, and having a cartoonishly absurd (but often surprisingly savvy and capable) representation of that was appealing to some people. Some people also just like to be offensive, as I'm sure you know and understand. Not only that, but there was a fairly robust trend in media of the asshole who gets away with being an asshole because he's smart, which persists to this day, although less outrageously (most of the time). And Cartman, despite being categorically awful, frequently got away with it, and wasn't some recurring villain, but a main character on the show and part of the core friend group.

The way the frat boys talked about stuff, I doubt they're "grown, different men" now. Probably running around in red hats, so yeah, hope they never get that shit off their shoulders.

2 things: 1) The Others is not based on The Turn of The Screw. It just FEELS like a remake of The Innocents. 2) please check out the documentary VHS Massacre and have the speed-dial to your lawyer to hand. EDIT: William Murdoch was Scottish, not Irish. Ok I'm done.

3:40 LOL I agree. Heres how Tenet was sold: Keep audiences in the dark about the plot other than stuff goes backwards, no real star except Twilight guy, no Hans Zimmer and no real hype since Nolans films have been gradually getting more uninteresting....it might have made money because it had Nolan's name on it but I didn't know a single person who was excited about it, even before the pandemic.

Bly Manor was incredibly mediocre. The characters were bland and generic, completely unengaging, the direction was nonexistent, and the pacing/"scares" were lackluster. Hill House was quite brilliant, had directorial vision, and the characters were so well outlined that the scares were genuinely troubling. Bly Manor was a complete failure and a disappointment after Hill House's ingenuity and emotion.

No mention of the only good adaptation of The Turn of the Screw, which is The Innocents from 1960 - one of the greatest horror films ever made. For shame, tsk tsk.

Idk about Borat and Borat 2 having alot of hidden cam stuff. The problem very often is you don't know what is staged and what is not. And I really feel that in Borat 2 that subtlety is gone. Still funny, but not like the first one.

The actress portraying his daughter is actually bulgarian. But he does have a few romanian actors on the cast.

There are definately people out there with a begrudging admiration for Cartman in the same way that there are people who admire the Joker. But the thing is, we don't admire who they are or what they do with their talents, we admire the talent itself. Any character that occasionally plays 4D chess with the entire cast just have that quality.

I share a lot of taste with Jay, but I enjoy Nolan's work. Convoluted sure, I found Tenet fun, lots of good acting, shots, Hans goes full Zimmer.

The Others is pretty far removed from Turn of the Screw. I'd be shocked if the creators of The Others credited Turn of the Screw as source.

Baron Cohen exploits peoples hospitality, if someone is acting crazy the naïve may go along with it to avoid conflict, it doesn't reflect on them in the way Cohem imagines, as it reveals Cohens own prejudice in setting up the situation the first place, only to deliberately misinterpret as an attack on others. He's a mean spirited small man who has been pushing the adl Gestapo's censorship lately, so his true agenda is clear for all to see now.

Honestly I thought it was terrible. Just a boring, meandering nothing from start to finish. And the last episode was completely pointless.

The woman who was trying to teach Borat how to use a toilet doesn't teach him because she assumed that Kazakhstan doesn't have indoor plumbing, she was teaching him because he definitely did not use the toilet correctly If anything, she's awesome for caring enough to endure teaching someone like him how to use one

Borat 2 felt less like he was letting assholes dig their own grave and more like he was trying to dig people's graves and force them in.

Bly Manor was so bad. The girl from Hill House was terrible in Bly, although great in Hill. Bly wasn't scary, the Scottish guy was so bad.

Tennet was the most interesting nolan film in years. it felt like a better version of inception, with more interesting characters and better pacing.

The Giuliani scene was edited for sure, but still... Rudy was expecting to get laid there, I don't think there's any doubt about it. There's a couple of things you can't edit in (the way he grabbed her by the waist, for instance).
