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!

Facebooktwitterredditmail

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.

When writer Toby Whithouse gives us a story that finally centers around Tosh, we should know better than to expect a ‘very special episode’ where things turn out lovely.


Legends Podcast #443; The Sixth Sense (Legends of Halloween ‘99)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The second-highest grossing release of 1999, sitting at $672.8 million worldwide, was M. Night Shyamalan’s supernatural horror drama film The Sixth Sense, starring Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment. The film spent five weeks at number one in the U.S. box office, was nominated for six Academy Awards, and introduced the phrase “I see dead people” into the pop culture lexicon. The film’s final twist, which became a Shyamalan trademark, kept audiences going back to see if they could spot the clues, which also translated to strong VHS sales and rental figures when The Sixth Sense was released on home video. Now, Legends Podcast is ready to tell you Bruce Willis’s secret… he’s wearing a hairpiece.

Riding air cars across a hollowed-out planet with a monumental secret, we find that despite being named by Douglas Adams, the place isn’t called Magrathea. (Shame.)
