Before getting down to business in episode 70 with our “UNDERRATED 80’s” lists, we invited past guest (and friend to the podcast) Vince D’Amato to join us for a pre-episode where we talk all about what we’ve watched since last episode.
We have another foray into Police Academy, some indie flicks you can find on Netflix, a handful of horror movies, Josh diving back into his VHS collection and much, much more!
Universal debuted their “Dark Universe” line this past week with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy and the reception was, shall we say, less than kind.
That’s where we come in as we’re here to tell you all about other films that contain some form of Egyptian curse that causes people to either shamble around wrapped in bandages looking for revenge, get possessed by some form of ancient goddess, or go tomb raiding. From the classics, to the lesser known, and (yes) even the Cruise film are mentioned.
First we’re talking about what we watched including two trips to the theatres to see a butt-kicking female superhero and a deceivingly marketed ‘horror’ film, Chris continuing his journey through an ensemble comedy series, two ‘killer kids’ movies, some heavy metal horror mayhem, another dive into Josh’s over-stuffed VHS collection and much more!
Are you ready for the third dimension?
For this episode we tackle 3D. From its heyday in the 1950’s, its impact on the cinema-going experience, the fact that it was considered a “fad”, and its eventual resurgence in modern times. We also give our opinions on the format and talk about our favourites that used 3D to their advantage.
First up we’ve got a lot of films we’ve watched between episodes ranging from a bunch of low-brow comedies, an alien taking on Arnold Schwarzenegger, the debut film from a stoner duo, Josh being amazed at Chris’ quickness mentioning an obscure director, and much more!
