    Legends Podcast #559; Moulin Rouge! (Musicals)

    Legends Podcast #559; Moulin Rouge! (Musicals)

    Director Baz Luhrman’s theater-themed “Red Curtain” trilogy drew to a close in 2001 with the follow-up to his breakout hit Romeo + Juliet. As with Baz’s take on The Bard, this film was filled with anachronism. It was a jukebox musical that fused cabaret, Broadway, vaudeville, and Bollywood. It was a lavish period piece set in turn-of-the-century bohemian Paris to the songs of the MTV Generation. And it was a hit, grossing almost $180 million and earning eight Oscar nominations. It’s hip-hop single, “Lady Marmalade” was a chart-topping hit, and the Broadway musical version of the film just won the Tony Award last year.

    Legends Podcast #558; A History of Violence (Comic Book Movies)

    Legends Podcast #558; A History of Violence (Comic Book Movies)

    Director David Cronenberg is best known for mind-bending body horror in films like Scanners, Videodrome, and The Fly, but he made his first “comic book movie” in 2005, an Academy Award-nominated adaptation of a graphic novel - and we do mean graphic. Starring Viggo Mortensen as a small-town diner owner whose mobster past catches up with him, the film was a modest success both financially and critically, and led to a series of collaborations between the actor and director, including Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method. Now, we’re watching the last major Hollywood movie to be released on VHS, which makes it historical - A History of Violence.

    Legends Podcast #557; The Matrix Resurrections (Sci-Fi)

    Legends Podcast #557; The Matrix Resurrections (Sci-Fi)

    The Matrix Trilogy redefined action movies, but by the third film in the franchise it had begun to topple under its own weight. The film’s creators, the Wachowskis, seemed to recognize this and went on to other projects, forswearing any future sequels. However, based on the profitability of the franchise, rumors of a reboot persisted, either with or without the creators’ involvement. And so a fourth Matrix movie became like the Matrix itself - no one can be told that it exists, you have to see it for yourself. In the end, Lana Wachowski returned to bring Neo and Trinity back to life, with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss reprising their roles. Now we’re returning to broadcast depth and hacking into The Matrix Resurrections!

    Legends Podcast #556; Romancing the Stone (Adventure)

    Legends Podcast #556; Romancing the Stone (Adventure)

    Robert Zemeckis was an unemployed movie director at the start of the 1980s, but by the end of the decade he was one of the most successful blockbuster directors with films like Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? under his belt. He got his big break from Michael Douglas, who hired Zemeckis to direct an action-adventure romantic comedy film starring Douglas and Kathleen Turner. The movie seemed destined to flop; a rough cut screening for 20th Century Fox execs led to Zemeckis being fired from Cocoon, his next scheduled project for the studio. Upon its release, however, the film turned out to be a sleeper hit and was Fox’s only box office success that year. Now we’re grabbing a vine and swinging into 2022 with Romancing the Stone!

    Legends Podcast #555; 8-Bit Christmas (New X-Mas Classic?)

    Legends Podcast #555; 8-Bit Christmas (New X-Mas Classic?)

    Bob Clark’s 1983 film A Christmas Story has become a holiday classic, but for most kids born in the ‘80s, a Red Ryder BB gun was not at the top of their wish lists. We wanted something a little more high-tech - the Nintendo Entertainment System. HBO Max’s latest original film, from Goon director Michael Dowse and novelist Kevin Jakubowski, updates this age-old tale for the millennial crowd, with hefty chunks of The Goonies, Home Alone, and The Princess Bride thrown in to make sure that no nostalgic stone is left unturned. Now we’re blowing on our cartridges and booting up 8-Bit Christmas for our last movie review of 2021!

Hey wing and crew. Love the cast. Can't wait to get caught up. I am way back at DOA. Love the format. The random ranting. Much better than a total structured format. Keep it up.
