Legends Podcast #432; Surviving the Game (Hunting Humans)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Twenty-five years ago, Hollywood churned out another remake of “The Most Dangerous Game,” the classic tale of man-meets-man, man-hunts-man, hunter-becomes-the-hunted… you know, that old chestnut. Coming just a year after Jean-Claude Van Damme played a certain Hard Target, Surviving the Game combined the same basic plot with a fish-out-of-water story as a character actor from the city (Ice-T) is brought to the wilderness to run for his life from a group of other character actors (the late Rutger Hauer, Charles S. Dutton, Gary Busey, John C. McGinley, F. Murrary Abraham) with predictable results. But is this ‘90s throwback worth tracking down, or should it be left on the VHS shelf next to those jars of heads?

“In the cinematic justice system, hunting humans for sport is considered especially heinous. The dedicated podcasters who rate these vicious films are members of an elite squad known as the Most Dangerous Victims Unit. These are their stories.”

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! These discussions will be spoiler filled and may explicit language, so consider yourself warned.

Legends Podcast #407; Green Lantern (Canuary)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

We’re back in the bathroom of the cinematic calendar – the month of January – and this year we’re hitting the bargain bins to dig up some turds from the comic book movie genre. Grab some TP and recite the oath – this is Canuary!

 

The DCEU got off to an abortive start when Green Lantern failed to light up the box office in 2011. Starring Ryan Reynolds as a test pilot turned emerald space cop, the movie crashed and burned in theaters and didn’t bring in enough green to fund a sequel, let alone spin off a cinematic universe. However, the movie wasn’t a complete loss: the original screenwriters went on to create their own DC Universe – on TV! Co-stars Angela Bassett and Taika Waititi went on to join the MCU, Temuera Morrison showed up in Aquaman, Mark Strong will get another shot at DC glory in Shazam!, and even CGI costumes are back in fashion. Everyone’s wearing them now! In fact, the only person who hasn’t made a comeback is Ryan Reynolds, right? That guy just isn’t cut out for playing the snarky bad boy lead in a comic movie. History will prove me right!

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! These discussions will be spoiler filled and may explicit language, so consider yourself warned.

Legends Podcast #406; Watchmen (Canuary)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

We’re back in the bathroom of the cinematic calendar – the month of January – and this year we’re hitting the bargain bins to dig up some turds from the comic book movie genre. Grab some TP (and some Band Aids) because the streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood – this is Canuary!From “visionary director” Zack Snyder comes the long-awaited adaptation of the greatest graphic novel of all time: Watchmen. Released in 2009 and based on the 1987 work by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, Snyder’s Watchmen instantly divided fans and critics. Was it too long, too dark, and too violent, or was it simply being faithful to the source material? Or did it stick to the letter of the source too slavishly, while failing to capture the spirit of the groundbreaking book, once called unfilmable by Moore, who refused to be named in the credits? Regardless, the end result was a moderate box office success. Now our hosts will seek to answer the age-old question: who watches Watchmen – if they can help it?

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! These discussions will be spoiler filled and may explicit language, so consider yourself warned.
