In this episode, we take a look at the 1995 Kevin Costner vanity project, Waterworld! It’s actually not the worst movie, it’s just not that great… and we’re pretty sure that everybody had hit maximum Kevin Costner levels when it was being made, so it was easy to hate on. There’s nothing really that exceptional in it except the boat, which is super cool. The boat is the real star.
In this episode, we take a look back at a classic from the olden days of Technicolor with the 1938 adventure film, the Adventures of Robin Hood! Even though this story has been told many times over on the silver screen, there’s something about this version that still holds up over so many decades as one of the best to watch. We spared you the extended costume talk segment, but just know that the entire movie is deserving of an in-depth discussion of gowns (and tights).
In this episode, we talk about the 1978 made for TV movie, featuring the “funny” Beatle of the same name, Ringo! It’s a heartwarming tale of two Ringos one famous and the other not, that sing their way through 45 minutes of not much plot into something that resembles the Star Wars Holiday Special and a Frank Zappa movie with a lot of the same people involved including Carrie Fisher and Art Carney. The 70s had one bucket of stars to use, people. AND THEY USED THEM.
In this episode, we take a look at the original and remake of one of Megan’s favorites, Clash of the Titans! Let’s try and figure out how a fun adventure tale featuring Harry Hamlin’s blank stare, Harryhausen animations and a robot owl turned into a gritty tale involving not auto tuned Olympian gods, sorcerer ents and an actually good use of CGI monster animation.
