Scattercast Episode 1 – “Eddie Murphy Hasn’t Made A Profitable Movie Since The ’90’s”

ScattercastBoy has the learning curve on this been steep, but here is the first episode of my podcast, “Scattercast”. Many, many thanks to Mark Hopkins for cutting the learning curve for me considerably, and thanks to my friend Renee for coming up with the name. For those who want to why the name “Scattercast”, it refers to the subject matter being scattered.

New episodes will be posted on Fridays, and will always be posted here. If you want to subscribe to an RSS of just the podcast, you can do so here. I have also submitted the series to iTunes, but not sure when it will show up over there.

This episode is about how and when movies become profitable, and how I think allowing Eddie Murphy to star in any movie is pretty much a bad idea now.

  • Makes sense. I totally buy that as the reason why movies like Meet Dave get made. Which is probably why the AMC theaters just raised their prices to $10 here and the people in the movie biz bitch and moan about piracy to much. I think it’s about time people take a stand and refuse to watch these poor quality films in any form.

    I wonder if this was an Eddie Murphy film because no one else in their right mind would take the part. And I also wonder how much he made to do it.

    And just to add to Eddie Murphy’s acting resume, I’d like to say that last year for Norbit, Eddie Murphy singlehandedly garnered five Razzie (the anti-Oscars) nominations — in four different categories — for his multiple characters. That’s a Razzie record for one person.

  • I have no clue why ANYONE would star in this drivel, let alone Murphy. The concept is just horrid. Yes, the solution is that people need to just stop watching them, but somehow people like Larry, The Cable Guy keeps getting movies, so someone is amused by these types of projects.

    Hollywood is dictating to the consumers what they will watch, and not the other way around. That’s just wrong.
