    The Boy Who Could Fly

    The Boy Who Could Fly

    This one's probably a deep cut for some of our listeners, but there are probably just as many of you out there who remember when this was in constant rotation on The Disney Channel.


    The Boy Who Could Fly has some surprisingly heavy subject matter considering its target demographic, but even more surprising is how effectively the film manages to hold all of that together. Thanks to some incredibly deft direction, what could have easily spun out into melodrama instead feels genuine and pretty darn heartwarming.


    Topics include: the PSA that used to run before the movie and why that maybe wasn't the worst idea in the world, unintended consequences of action figure funerals, how seeing more of the kids at school could have streamlined and clarified certain plot points, what other powers Eric might secretly be harboring, and much more!

    The Best Movies That Were Never Made

    The Best Movies That Were Never Made

    Since we had to scrap the episode that we'd originally planned to release due to technical difficulties, we thought this was a fitting subject to explore.

    Hollywood history is loaded with so many interesting stories of roads not taken. There have been so many films that were announced, developed, and sometimes even started shooting that just never made it across the finish line for one reason or another. On this episode, we're highlighting some of the most tantalizing examples of this.

    And as mentioned, here’s the link to Innsmouth: Beneath the Surface by Megan K.S. Roberts.

    Twins

    Twins

    Twins wasn't technically Arnold Schwarzenegger's first foray into comedy, but it was the first time he was deliberately playing against type after establishing himself as an icon in the action genre. He also knew this was all a little outside his wheelhouse, so he really stacked the deck when it came to the director, his co-stars, and an unlikely mentor that helped him hone his comedic chops.

    Topics include: an investigation into this film's unusual connection to Suburban Commando, how Twins wound up netting Arnold a bigger payday than any of his previous movies, some surprising evidence that Cormac McCarthy may have been a huge fan of this film, whether or not this much backstory was required to justify the pretty straightforward premise, the long in development sequel, and more!

    Uncle Buck

    Uncle Buck

    Home Alone's meteoric success in the winter of 1990 took John Hughes by surprise. It also (for better or worse) set the latter half of his career down a slightly different path. So in some ways, 1989's Uncle Buck represents the end of an era.

    On this episode, we examine how Hughes and his frequent collaborator John Candy straddle the line between the writer/director's golden age of output and the type of comedy that would define the next decade of his career.

    Topics include: Hughes' original (and somewhat surprising) choice for the title role, the studio's even more unusual pick, how an abandoned high school was transformed into a mini-movie studio, why Candy's performance doesn't totally match what's on the page and how that's ultimately a good thing, the ways in which a more formulaic structure might have actually helped this story, why there was never an Uncle Buck 2 despite Hughes' interest, and much more!

    Demolition Man

    Demolition Man

    When we revisited Judge Dredd for the podcast, we couldn't help but notice how much of it seemed like a less successful version of Demolition Man. Since then, we've been anxious to rewatch this one to see how accurate that assessment was.

    "Prescient" is not a word you'd expect to use when describing one of Stallone's overblown early 90s blockbusters, but it turns out Demolition Man is full of surprises. 

    Topics include: the film's origins as a fairly straightforward sci-fi movie and how it evolved into a more satirical (and action-heavy) look at the future, a key subplot that was removed from the final cut, the unintended confusion caused by its absence, why the final act doesn't quite live up to the promise of the first 2/3, some unusual alternate casting choices, Stallone's intentions to develop a sequel, and more!
