New York... a city pushed to the edge. People pushed to the limit. And no one's got the guts to stop them… apart from Spocklight at the Movies! This episode, we’re covering ‘Death Wish 3’ (Star Trek connection: Marina Sirtis) with Daryl and Jeanette from smashing film podcast, Sudden Double Deep.
Liam decries the gleefully sadistic Death Wish 2, gets nostalgic for the videostore era, wonders how 64-year-old Charles Bronson's punches somehow rivals Superman's and chats up our recent trip to actually SEE Marina Sirtis in the brilliant play, Dark Sublime.
Matt is delighted with sightings of a young Alex Winter and a ridiculous plunger wielding punk, can't help but compare the main villain to Gob Bluth and discusses some of the many problematic details surrounding Sirtis' role as 'Maria'
And guests Daryl and Jeanette provide their expert knowledge on the history of Canon Films, wince at the iffy white saviour tropes, ill-conceived rape scene and depictions of extreme class warfare... and mostly try to work out where all the money was spent.
Join us as we collectively lose our shit and get ever more hysterical at this borderline parody of a movie, complete with cartoonish kills, western-style shootouts, deadly Home Alone traps and the funniest explosion in film history then head straight over to the Sudden Double Deep feed to hear Liam and Matt guesting on their ‘Kingdom of the Spiders’ episode starring William Shatner himself.
