0073: The Abyss

0073: The Abyss

James Cameron really loves the water, so he made a very expensive film that was very difficult to film so he could become a fish for a few months.  The result is The Abyss, a clunky blockbuster that has a lot more issues than its watery setting. Join us as we discuss why no one makes films like this, what’s going on with Cameron’s choking fetish and try and fix the terrible ending.

Next week post apocalyptic fun with George Miller’s original Mad Max, watch a trailer here!

0072: Predators

0072: Predators

Remember how great Predator was last week? What a well thought out, tightly scripted and tense action film it was? And remember Predator 2? How it took that formula and transplanted it to a city, adding police procedural stuff and weirdo cults to create some fresh and exciting?

Well forget all that because this week we watch Predators, where gruff librarian Adrien Brody leads a group of dull Z-listers around a fake jungle in a vain attempt to locate the magic that made the original film so good.

(P.s. these notes written by Sam, and don’t necessarily represent the views of the entire pod. But they probably should.)

Next week we go under the sea with James Cameron’s The Abyss, watch the trailer here!

0071: Predator

0071: Predator

We’re back with a bang, as we celebrate the release of The Predator by watching Predator, no The required. Join us for an in depth breakdown of John McTiernan’s monster movie classic, as we follow Arnie and a team of ’80s action heroes into the jungle. Awful Arnie impersonations, lots of talk about how great a monster the predator is, and repeated attempts not to consider any of the terrible things done to the Predator by later entries in the franchise.

Next week a look at one of those later entries, more predator fun with 2010’s Predators, watch a trailer here!
