Best Talking Over a Film - 2011
Mile High Sci-Fi
We all hate those people who spend the entire run time (and hefty admission price) of a movie loudly chatting about the plot points and the lead actress's boob job, but hand them a couple of microphones and an otherwise unwatchable piece of cinematic shit, and the result can be comedy genius. Of course, there are a few more qualifications required to really pull this off. For starters, the people with the mikes have to be both funny and geeky. Luckily, Matt Vogl and Harrison Rains, the two-man joke machine behind Mile High Sci-Fi, fill that double bill. With snide wit and an impressive knowledge of outmoded pop-cultural detritus, the two spend the final weekend of each month polishing the turds of our ridiculous filmmaking past into comedic gems — and while you'll be unlikely to walk out of the show a better person for it, we can definitely think of worse ways to spend a couple of hours. In your nearby multiplex listening to some cell-phone-obsessed slob talking over the film, for example.
