Episode #40: Remakes Submitted for Your Approval

Halloween:  1978 vs. 2007

All Hallows Eve is upon us once again children.  While we've got more important things to be worrying about without GHOSTS & GOBLINS, there is one shape that we are on the lookout for:  he's tall, ruggedly handsome in that albino sense of the word & has a penchant for sororicide.  No, not William Shatner, that's just the mask.

John Carpenter may have changed the pace in the 70's for what would come, but Rob Zombie altered the course by forcing people to look back and remember where the 00's came from when it comes to horror.  In certain ways, each version stepped outside its contemporary boundaries.  To sit down and watch them close together you may walk away with a favorite, but it's fair to say that the other was pretty darn good.  Each goes at it from a significantly different angle.

Turn your lights down (where applicable) and get under the covers while Christosaurus & Mattenstein talk about the thing that is more human than human and has come to chew bubble gum and kick ass under a black sunshine.  It's Big Trouble in Little Illinois cause you're never gonna stop him in that dense the fog.

Yeah - Wow!  Demon-warp is coming alive in 1970 - eight - eight - eight.

Episode #39: Acceptable Departures

October 21st, 2012

Good Evening Ladies & Gentleman ahhhh

We are your Captain's Matt & Chris.  On behalf of the entire crew uhhhh, welcome aboard Cinema Triforce Airways flight #39: "Acceptable Departures" non-stop service from Plainsville to Awesome-town.

We realize that, as of late, the cinema world hasn't really been breaking barriers in the story-line department.  Remake, reboot or adapt has been Hollywood's M.O. for the past 5-7 years, and the label of "unoriginal" is frequently used.  What of the adaptations that have succeeded?  Stories that have bridged the medium gap & been met with praise & high acclaim?  Can you think of any?

'cause we can...and here they are.

  • Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
  • possibly the greatest modern fairy tale
  • Blade Runner

To the left you'll see a kids' book musical ahhhh; by our starboard side passengers below the cloud line is a majestic smoky Sci-Fi.  Our flight time time will be around uhhhh, 55 minutes.  On behalf of Cinema Triforce Airways & the entire crew, we'd like to thank you joining us on this episode & we're looking forward to seeing you on board again in the near future.  Up, UP & AWAAAY!!!

Episode 38: In Defense of Keanu

October 13th, 2012
  • Speed/
  • The Devils Advocate/
  • The Gift/

This week we’ve taken it upon ourselves to make a stand; to draw a line in the sand.  Across this line… YOU DO NOT.  Oh, and Dude?  Keanu is not the preferred nomenclature:  Mr. Reeves please.  Bay 12.  Mr. Reeves has experienced an immense amount of ridicule & mocking from a huge swath of the cinematic world.  Ever since his stint as one half of the duo that will end up being the saviors of the human race (and we are... *ahem* We WILL be eternally grateful) he’s been the butt of countless skits, jokes, pokes & prods.  Us Sluts think he’s not always so bad.  In actuality, he can be kind of a badass - so much so that we hand-picked three of his shiniest gems & polished them up for your enjoyment.

Enjoy Matt's (unintentional) impression of Stewie doing an impression of Keanu.  Enjoy the rest too, that one part is at the beginning.  We'll quit telling you what to do (for now), just listen since you're already here.  You do not want to squander the fruits of your surfing venture.  Whoa.

Episode #37: Remakes for the Worse.

October 6th, 2012

Dangerous Liaisons -VS- Cruel Intentions.

The time has come for yet another remake episode.  However, this week we decided to throw you lovely people a few twists for good measure.  The first: being unable to reach a ceasefire agreement over the episode’s content, Chris has elected to bow out for this week.  Therefore, in his absence & playing the role of Switzerland, will be our 2nd ever guest host:  Joe from two other classy podcasts:  Six Drinks In & Shootcast. Go check 'em out!

And the 2nd twist?  Ah HA…we are not going to tell you.  You’ll just have to listen & see.  Are we Dangerous?  Or…  Are we Cruel?

  • 1988 – John Malkovich, Glenn Close & Michelle Pfeiffer
  • 1999 – Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar & Reese Witherspoon
