Episode 80: H.

H.

Two women named Helen struggle to cope with their lives following an alleged meteor strike in the town of Troy, New York.

IMDb

In 2014, the water crisis of Flint, Michigan hit the news where it was revealed that over 100,000 residents had been exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water. For three years, they have been using bottled or filtered water for drinking, cooking, and bathing. In 2017, Random Reviews and Other Ramblings is now breaking the news that the residents of Troy, New York have been drinking contaminated water, and inbreeding for over 50 years with no government intervention. We recommend that residents of Troy stop drinking water from the Hudson River, and stop marrying their cousins. Failure to do so will result in severe dementia as depicted in the movie H. This movie gets the lowest rating we can give out since, by definition, it is not a movie. A movie is a story recorded by camera as a set of moving images and this hard-hitting news piece has no story. It is a compilation of every fever dream I've ever had and ever will have. Gordon tried redeeming H. by pointing out it was probably a modern interpretation of Helen of Troy from Greek mythology which appears to be true. It is said that Helen was the most beautiful woman in the known world and was abducted by Paris, the prince of Troy. Helen was supposed to be married to the prince of Sparta so her kidnapping resulted in the Trojan War. While Helen was in Troy, she was considered to be in constant gloom and sorrow. So, yeah, H. hit the nail on head if you ignore the "most beautiful woman" part. This movie is exactly that; gloom, sorrow, and a waste of time. After the news, we ramble about Tracy Morgan's new Netflix special and a review of E3. Next week, we're watching Gun Hill.
