Legends Podcast #454; Disney Minus: The Black Cauldron (Canuary)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Last year, films produced or owned by Walt Disney Studios accounted for a whopping 80% of box office returns. In fact, looking at the 2019 Top Ten, you’d have to go down to 9th place to find a movie that wasn’t produced or co-produced by Disney, or its Marvel, Pixar, and LucasFilm subsidiaries. While Disney has always been a force at the box office, it has not always produced winners. The House of Mouse has plenty of skeletons in its closet, from unloved sequels, franchise non-starters, and plain ol’ flops. This is Canuary 2020: Disney Minus!

Disney’s signature product, since the very beginning, has been the animated feature film. With early classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937 and the mega-hits of the ‘90s like Aladdin and The Lion King, Disney proved that it can outdraw the competition. But things weren’t always great in the Magic Kingdom, with a fairly lengthy dry spell in the ‘70s and ‘80s that many refer to as the Dark Ages. In 1985, Disney Animation saw its biggest flop yet, a fantasy movie based on The Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander, which, with a budget of around $40 million, was the most expensive animated film made to date. It only grossed $21 million and nearly shut down Disney’s animation studios for good. And though the critics liked it and it was the first animated film to use computer-generated imagery, the movie was not released on home video until 1998. Now Legends Podcast kicks off our month of crappy movies by taking a dump in The Black Cauldron!

Legends Podcast #452; Galaxy Quest (Legends of ‘99)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Twenty years ago, American cinemas were rocked by one of the best overall years in movie history. Legends Podcast has celebrated the Legends of ‘99 all year long, and now we’re wrapping up with our most favorite films of the year.

Finally, Lobster brings our celebration of ‘99 to its natural conclusion. There were many fine films of 1999, but the years have dimmed the luster of some of the year’s top contenders. And though many films of ‘99 are still beloved by audiences, very few have seen their legend grow over the two decades since their release the way this film’s legend has. There were many fine films of 1999, but none finer than Galaxy Quest. Released on Christmas Day, the film, which came out of a troubled production for DreamWorks Studios, flew under box office radar, but earned praise from critics and audiences alike, and secured an enduring legacy as what George Takei called “a chillingly realistic documentary.” Now, MovieDude Eric joins Beef, Wing, and Lobster to take on the final Legend of ‘99. Never give up, never surrender!

Legends Podcast #448; Timeline (Chronovember)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

During his prolific career, author Michael Crichton brought dinosaurs back to life, explored a jungle ruled by evil gorillas, terrorized us with a virus from outer space, and proved that footnotes and dense technical descriptions could have a place in bestselling novels. Most importantly, his works were tailor-made for the movies, with seven of his books getting the big-screen treatment in the ‘90s. Crichton capped his amazing run with a novel that tackled sci-fi’s holy grail – time travel – with his signature exhaustive pseudoscientific detail. In 2003, ace action director Richard Donner brought Timeline to life with a Paul Walker led feature film, about a group of scholars sent back in time to medieval France. There’s one thing worse than dying here, and that’s living here… This is Chronovember!

Legends Podcast #447; Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (Chronovember)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Fall back in time with Legends Podcast! All month long, we’re talking about time travel, paradoxes, and being excellent to each other.

Time travel is extremely complicated, rife with unintended consequences. You could accidentally erase yourself from existence or change the course of all of history. Or you could, you know, kidnap half a dozen historical figures just to get a passing grade in high school social studies. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure accomplished this consequence-free time travel with just a phone booth, and it scored big at the box office, with one sequel in 1991, two television spin-offs (one live-action and one animated) and a third film, Bill & Ted Face the Music, in the works for summer 2020 release. Strange things are afoot at the Circle K… This is Chronovember!

Legends Podcast #446; The Terminator (Chronovember)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Terminator franchise can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear! And it absolutely will not stop, ever… until you are dead! This past weekend’s release of Terminator: Dark Fate proved that statement definitively as the film became the third attempt to restart the franchise in only a decade. But will the fact that Fate delivered less than $30 million at the box office be enough to convince Hollywood to terminate this aging relic? Or will future time travelers be able to erase the past ten years of reboots? We’re going back to the beginning to see if there’s hope. Come with us if you want to live… This is Chronovember!

Daylight savings threw beef off, he thought it was sent time back a full week… not clocks back an hour.. his bad! your final Legends of Halloween for 2019

Director Robert Eggers made a name for himself with the 2015 release of his debut film, The Witch. Stylized as The VVitch, the film, set in colonial New England with all its “thees” and “thous,” established Eggers’s bonafides as an auteur with an instinct for authenticity. With his next film, The Lighthouse, now in theaters and earning rave reviews, Wing and Lobster venture into the woods to see a goat about a man. Move along, this is Legends of Halloween… pilgrim.
