Episode 50: Todd Masters

We made it! That’s right, GBW has hit 50! And what better way to celebrate than to bring you our biggest guest ever!

To help us celebrate our 50th, we talk to effects maestro Todd Masters. The head of Masters FX and having worked on such films as Slither, Night of the Creeps, and Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight as well as such big name television shows as “True Blood” and “Fringe”, Todd was kind enough to allow us to visit his Vancouver studio and sit down with us to talk all about his career including some amazing stories and a whole bunch of laughs.

Episode 49: Top Ten 80’s Action

Growing up in the 80’s was the prime time for some high testosterone manliness and THE decade for the All-American action hero. The kind of guy who could take out an entire army of baddies all by himself – usually with guns that never seemed to need reloading. We’re talking names such as Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone.

What are our favourite 80’s action flicks? Which would we not hesitate to recommend to those who (sadly) missed out on this prime-time for over-the-top and ridiculous action? Tune in and hear both of our lists – and be as surprised as we are at a couple of the entries.

But first, we talk about what we’ve been watching including a movie that takes George A. Romero’s name in vain, a visit to the theatre to see Don’t Breathe, the cowboy robots of Westworld, and much more!
