Mac and Me is truly a turd. We didn't like it at all. Sorry about that.

The movie fails on so many levels especially for a children's movie. The complete lack of a relationship between the clone of ET's Elliot and MAC left us scratching our heads wondering why the characters try to do anything for MAC. All MAC and his family do to the protagonist family is fuck shit up. Twice the main child dies and twice he is saved by the "MACs" but he wouldn't remember either time as he was clearly dead, so one can't use that as an argument.

The script suffers from the typical bad movie staple of too many rewrites so the plot is pretty lost. But what the filmmakers failed to do was rewrite the entire script instead of just sections. There are places in the movie where there were clear tie ins to other scenes that were either scrapped or rewritten. Why does the family know that the government is on the lookout for spooky aliens? When does MAC get his name? When does the family decide to help the MACs? Too many gaping holes in the story isn't fun, even for bad movie lovers. It is just frustrating from an artistic standpoint and goes back into the "Kids are dumb; they won't notice" idea often put forth by studio executives.

Watch the Whole Movie!

Show opener - Justin has lost his ability to do anything but play Fallout 4 and Jackie is left with no choice but to go on Sammy Jesse Raphael.

It's the final film in our 3 piece "Monster Buds" series and we close with a film we've been planning on since we started the podcast. It's the tale of a film executives trying to cash in on the buzz of ET (a film no one on Stinker Madness likes) so odds are pretty low that we'll enjoy this one.

When you absolutely must rescue your vague kingdom from a usurper with unknown motivations and restore your position as the supreme ruler of the lands, reach for a Galgameth statue and squirt some tears on it. Just make sure you don't ever go near an ocean. It's the Adventure or Legend or just Galgameth and he's one family friendly Kaijū!

Galgameth is one of those movies that has no target audience. It's too dumb and childish for adults but has too many adult themes for little kids. The protagonist is a pre-teen but there's too much cutesy stuff to fit that demographic. It's like there's a 2 week window when a boy is about 11 and isn't sure if they should be kissing girls or playing with action figures that this movie might work for.

There's some pretty great stuff in this one though for bad movie lovers. There is some possible moral tale about cats being evil and dogs being good, some seriously cheesy special effects, a poorly shot dummy that clearly gets crushed by Galgameth, some awful swordplay, some pretty crummy costumes, possible stuntmen injured by burning rocks and pretty dumb dialogue. It's very easy to riff and great to discuss the stupid parts.

It may be called Galgameth or it might be called The Adventures of Galgameth or it might be called The Legend of Galgameth; who's to say? Either way, it's the start of our "Monster Bud" 3 episode series. It involves a fantasy tale about a boy who gets a dragon who grows by eating metal. So we'll see how that works out.

Sorry about the awful audio quality. Our new mixer is total crap.

The Adventures of Galgameth, also known as the Legend of Galgameth, on the DVD cover and poster it’s just Galgameth. There is actually a different name for every country it was released in, was released domestically by Trimark Home Video in 1997, though the film was made and released elsewhere in 1996.  It was shot in Romania by American director Sean McNamara. McNamara is widely known as a producer of pre-teen programming. Pre-teen is totally different from children’s programming, it doesn’t like being seen riding around in the car with its parents.  McNamara has consistently produced shows for Nickelodeon, the Disney Channel and Cartoon Network. This appears to be his second movie, though there are heavy TV credits in between his first film, Hollywood Chaos and this. Beyond the TV shows this guy does sequels. 2 Sequels to Casper, a sequel to The Cutting Edge and on for Three Ninjas. The sequels that he made which may rear there ugly heads around this place are the 3 Baby Geniuses sequels. Baby Geniuses 2: Superbabies, held the top spot on the bottom 100 for something like 2 years. You would think that after something like that the franchise would die. McNamara, who didn’t direct Superbabies, did revive the franchise with: Baby Geniuses and the Mystery of the Crown Jewels, Baby Geniuses and the Treasure of Egypt, then culminating his experience and the trilogy with Baby Geniuses and the Space Baby. It should probably be mentioned that he also directed Soul Surfer which was well received. He also placed himself in this film with second billing.
