Legends Podcast #373; Get Out (Horror)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Legends Podcast takes a detour from blockbuster to Blumhouse with 2017’s surprisingly successful debut film from writer/director Jordan Peele. In making the transition from TV sketch comedy to horror, Peele put a terrifying spin on the classic “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” set-up. Get Out earned a massive $250 million on a four-and-a-half million dollar budget and garnered multiple awards and nominations, including an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Peele. But does this scary story add up to a modern classic, or should Peele “Get Out” of the movie business? (Seriously, though, he shouldn’t.)

Legends Podcast #372; Avengers: Infinity War (Marvel)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

The Marvel Cinematic Universe spent 18 films building to an epic showdown with Thanos, the Mad Titan. Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of ten years’ worth of storytelling, featuring dozens of characters, various locations across the cosmos, and stakes high enough to bring together Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Master of the Mystic Arts, and your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. While the film has already broken box office records around the globe, it has left lingering questions about the future of MCU and the nature of filmmaking itself. Now, Legends Podcast sits down to talk about the movie while we watch the sun rise on a grateful – or ungrateful – universe. Just don’t call us plucky – we don’t know what it means.

Legends Podcast #371; Sunshine (Sci-Fi)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

In 2007, one movie brought together Scarecrow, Captain America, Captain Phillipa Georgiou, Moira MacTaggart, Wong, the dad from Fear the Walking Dead, and Sinestro. That movie was written by the man who would create Ex Machina and directed by the man who will direct the 25th James Bond installment. That movie was Sunshine, and it was a box office flop. But just over a decade later, the legacy of the film seems brighter as many of its stars have found the spotlight and its director won a shiny Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire. So, should Sunshine go gently into that good night, or should it rage, rage against the dying of the light?

Legends Podcast #370; Marvel’s The Avengers (Marvel)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

There was an idea… to bring together a group of Marvel’s B-List superheroes to see if they could become something more than just a bunch of characters we still had the rights to. To see if they could work together when we needed them to fight the box office battles that the X-Men, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four never could. To see if a throwaway gag in a post-credits scene could actually become one of the highest grossing movies of all time. And then to use a post-credits scene in that movie to set up an even bigger crossover movie six years later. We’ll call it The Avengers, an “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” type of thing, and it might take us a while to get any traction, but once we do… the possibilities are infinite!

Meow is the time for Legends Podcast to celebrate one of the most successful independent comedies of the mew millenium! Meow the year was 2001, and one movie hit it big at Sundance and won the audience award at South by South West.

Legends Podcast #367; Conan the Barbarian (Arthouse/Legends)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Two podcasts, coming together, facing each other! Legends Podcast joins forces with Arthouse Legends to celebrate their 200th episode. This week, we’re journeying to an age undreamed of for John Milius’s sword-and-sorcery epic Conan the Barbarian. Ripped from the pages of Robert E. Howard’s classic fantasy and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger in his breakout role, this film left critics audiences divided, with one commentator noting that “for every positive review the film garnered, it received two negative ones.” Luckily, we have some qualified guest hosts to help us make sense out of this Riddle of Steel! Welcome to Arthouse/Legends!

Legends Podcast journeys to the distant future – the year 2025 – to a world where mankind’s leaders have realized the folly of building a giant wall to keep out undesirables. Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro brings this anime-inspired world of mechas and kaijus to life in Pacific Rim – a film that begs the question – what if they actually made a good Transformers movie?

Legends Podcast #365 Black Mirror

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

In a rare turn of events, Legends Podcast tackles a television show. We’re talking about the science-fiction-gone-horribly-wrong anthology series from the twisted mind of Charlie Booker. Originally on Channel 4 in the UK, Netflix picked up the show because of course they did. They play for keeps. To facilitate our discussion, we’ve made up a little game of our own. The rules are simple. Each host picks an episode, and we discuss. Join us as a we stare into the void of Black Mirror!
