    Justice League 2017 and 2021

    Justice League 2017 and 2021

    It's 2021 and there's a new cut of JUSTICE LEAGUE and a new SUICIDE SQUAD...
    ...so everyone must be happy, right? WRONG says Dave of YOUR LIST, MY COMMAND.

    However his co-host Derek (of the much better THE GRAND GESTURE podcast) calls ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE "better than my own child."

    Which extreme opinion do you fancy? Find out by listening to an awful lot of debate over funny books on film in our episode on the two Justice Leagues.

    Mortal Kombat 1995 and 2021

    Mortal Kombat 1995 and 2021

    It's a fight to the death between two Mortal Kombat movies that are not Annihilation.
    For an episode on video game movies we have to bring on a real dork in Jared of SOBER CINEMA. As he speaks with us from the comfort of his gaming chair some important matters discussed in the world of MORTAL KOMBAT:


    Is using Liu Kang poor form among friends?
    How about selecting him as your champion to wield against people you despise?
    Such as maybe a coworker who is an animal and plays with Reptile?

    Also we get around to discussing the first feature film adaptation from 1995 and the new HBO Max joint. Because Liu Kang needs no defending.

    The Apartment and Wicker Park

    The Apartment and Wicker Park

    David Giannini has unfortunately started a new podcast called OFF SCREEN DEATH.
    That's bad.
    But his co-host is the co-host of this show, Mike Denniston.
    That's good.
    However as part of the promotional tour for OFF SCREEN DEATH (that's the name of the new movie podcast that is half good and half bad) Dave is the guest on this episode for THE APARTMENT and WICKER PARK.
    That's bad.
    But the episode is good. We promise. We make fun of Josh Hartnett's hair, Matthew Lillard's face and feud over rights to love Rose Byrne all before Mike starts talking about large breasts in French cinema.
    It's more good than bad. Enjoy!

    Manhunter and Red Dragon

    Manhunter and Red Dragon

    Jairo of MARK AS PLAYED joins the show to suggest that while Ralph Fiennes is no body builder... his version of a serial killer is still "a touch on the sexy side."
    This is just the beginning of disagreement as Mike defends the honor of ORIGINAL REMAKE by siding with Michael Mann's version of this Hannibal Lector adjacent story in MANHUNTER and our idiot guest sides with Brett Ratner.
    Not just RED DRAGON but Brett Ratner. And that's not even mentioning the tiger penis sequence... though our guest does. Repeatedly. Enjoy!

    Reboot: ADDAMS FAMILY REUNION

    Reboot: ADDAMS FAMILY REUNION

    No one asked for this. But Peter drinks a beer and ADDAMS FAMILY REUNION ends up on ORIGINAL REMAKE... and also a VHS ripped copy on YouTube if you really hate your family that much over the Thanksgiving holiday. Thankfully the true holiday classic is up next in ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES!

The Original was Better

Original Remake flourishes in the comparisons it tackles. It's a clever idea to not only address originals with direct sequels but also originals and spiritual successors/highly influenced films. The hosts share a fun rapport and love for movies that comes across when listening. Give them a listen and subscribe now!

Love the concept

In a sea of movie podcasts the concept is often what draws my attention and in a time where everything seems to be remade and rebooted it's great to have a show that looks at both versions of the film and discusses which one holds up as a better film. Hint - it's not always the original.

Awesome Concept - Smart Conversation

Original Remake is a wonderful podcast idea. It's unique among the plethora of film review podcasts in that it focuses on movies that have been remade. Peter and Mike compare, contrast, and ultimately choose the best parts of teach film. They also have a fun little segment where they pick a fantast cast for the next remake. It's a wonderful show and under an hour so perfect for a commute. Check them out!
