    Tremors

    Tremors

    Considering that this original film wasn't a gigantic hit at the box office, you might be surprised to learn that the Tremors franchise is now six films deep (with a seventh on the way). Like the Graboids themselves, this shockingly long-running series has operated mostly underground - it was one of the first major properties to take full advantage of sequels designed specifically for the burgeoning direct-to-video market and as a result, it's been quietly serving a fairly fervent fan base ever since.

    So on this episode, we're going back to where it all started just in time for Tremors' 30th anniversary. The horror/comedy hybrid is a notoriously tough nut to crack and this one walks that line better than most. We knew there was a lot of love for this movie, but we were still pretty blown away by just how competently crafted it was.

    Topics include: how the premise is basically a series of inversions of traditional horror movie tropes, why Tremors 2 made us remember Burt being a bigger part of this one than he actually is, the unusual problem with the original Graboid design, the interesting way the next two films in the series expand on the life cycle of these creatures, our nostalgia for terrible straight-to-video sequels, and much more!

    Return to Oz

    Return to Oz

    For those of us that were traumatized by this as kids, Return to Oz felt more like a shared psychosis than an actual movie. The whole thing just seemed too crazy to be real.

    But real it was. And unfortunately for the filmmakers, Disney decided to market this as a direct sequel to The Wizard of Oz despite the fact that it was never intended to be. So audiences went in expecting munchkins, lollipops, and rainbows and instead got electroshock therapy, wheelers, and disembodied heads.

    It had been ages since any of us had seen it and we were excited to find out how this plays when you divorce yourself from any expectations and take it on its own terms.

    Jerry Maguire

    Jerry Maguire

    After the commercial disappointment of his second feature film Singles, director Cameron Crowe couldn't help but notice how many fair weather friends were disappearing now that he was no longer the hot new kid in town. That realization lit the spark for what would become his next project - Jerry Maguire.

    It took several years before the initial idea evolved into a finished script and there were a lot of interesting changes along the way. We explore how a filmmaker with no interest in professional sports turned that into the perfect backdrop for this story.

    Topics include: the other A-list movie star Crowe wrote the title role for, the decision to start this film where any other movie about this guy would have ended, how shocked they were that "show me the money" became a catchphrase, the line they thought was going to be the most quoted, the difference between this era of Cameron Crowe's work and his more recent output, how much plot gets crammed into the third act, why the iconic climactic scene might be the wrong ending for this movie, and much more!

    Jingle All The Way

    Jingle All The Way

    We were all just a little bit too old for this one when it came out, but we always receive so many requests for it this time of year. As you'll soon discover, we didn't even really choose this one... it chose us.

    Topics include: the much darker version of this film peeking out around the edges, what our version of the Turbo Man toy was when we were kids, the direct-to-video sequel, why you should never drink eggnog lattes, whether this movie really deserves the reputation it has, and much more!

    Judge Dredd

    Judge Dredd

    It's Thanksgiving here in the states and that means it's time for this year's cinematic turkey. And you'd be hard-pressed to find a film that's as overstuffed as 1995's Judge Dredd.


    If you were a fan of the character from his appearances in the comic book 2000 A.D., this was a pretty big betrayal of that source material. If you had no familiarity with it whatsoever, this was just an incoherent version of much better action/sci-fi movies. As a result, it was a critical and commercial disappointment.


    It's since transformed into a cult film and this entire run of bizarre 90s adaptations has almost become its own sub-genre. So what's the verdict on Judge Dredd all these years later?


    Topics include: how RoboCop derailed plans for this movie for many years, the big differences between the film and the comic, how so much more is being taken from those pages than you might realize, why some of the alterations probably felt like the right all at that time, whether or not the Karl Urban Dredd movie is ultimately any more faithful than this one, the other Stallone movie from this era that has more in common with 2000 A.D., and so much more!

    The Terminator

    The Terminator

    To coincide with the release of the latest Terminator movie, we decided to go back to where it all began - James Cameron's 1984 classic The Terminator.

    Given how elaborate and grandiose this franchise became, it's easy to forget just how lean and mean this original film is. It actually has more in common with Halloween than it does with the subsequent installments. Cameron was definitely borrowing some moves from John Carpenter's playbook, but also putting a brand new spin on a lot of familiar elements. The result is A+ execution of a B-movie premise.

    Topics include: Arnold Schwarzenegger originally being offered the role of Reese, the studio's first choice for the role of The Terminator, how incredibly this story unfolds and trying to imagine seeing it for the first time with no pre-existing knowledge of any Terminator movies, structural similarities to T2, what the more recent sequels have gotten wrong about Sarah Connor, and much more!
