Show Notes

MOVIE DISCUSSION: 

TrucePodcast.com

Chris Staron of Truce Podcast joins Melvin to talk Ernest Scared Stupid, the movie Melvin kept talking about during their last episode together, Ernest Saves Christmas
 
Topics: 

  • Chris Staron tells us about Truce Podcast, his award-winning Christian show about how the Christian church has gotten where it is, and how it can do better. 
  • Melvin relives some library/Blockbuster nostalgia with rewatching Ernest Scared Stupid
  • Introducing Ernest Scared Stupid [13:31] 
  • Melvin felt Ernest Scared Stupid's comedy is pretty good. The kind of comedy you talk about after the fact rather than laugh about in the moment. 
  • Ernest movies are comfy. They're easy to digest and remind viewers of simpler times. 
  • It's a shame that comedy is often regarded as low-brow or low-tier to the general public in terms of performative arts when comedy requires a wealth of talent and brilliance to pull off. 
  • Discussing the concept of fear for children and Christians. 
  • Chris Staron does some biblical gymnastics to correlate Ernest Scared Stupid to scriptural parallels. Hope you brought yoga pants! 
  • Ernest Scared Stupid still fits the bill of "kids on bikes save the day" even if Ernest is, like, 50 years old. 
  • Fear is not a juvenile emotion. Fear is not a sign of immaturity. Fear is healthy, useful, fun, and complicated.
