    Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

    Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Oz the Great and Powerful. A charlatan carnival barker gets transported to Oz where he has 99 problems and a witch is one. Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz.

    Sam Raimi's first foray into the high fantasy genre since Army of Darkness, Oz the Great and Powerful carries on the dark humor and wit of the books into its own story. James Franco makes a decent titular Oz, Michelle Williams is a resplendent Glinda, but there are too many special effects here just for a gag. A big war battle at the end never has as much stakes as bitchy relationship between the witches does. Often goofy at times (what Raimi film isn't?), Oz the Great and Powerful is charming enough where you wish a few more flicks would have been made in this same style.

    Return to Oz (1985)

    Return to Oz (1985)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Return to Oz. A girl gets committed to an insane asylum and runs away to her favorite magical land.

    A clever adaptation of The Marvelous Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz, Return to Oz hews closer to the books than its more popular musical predecessor did. In some ways, this comes off as a horror film with how frightening the creatures look. Over the years, this has become a cult classic. Jean Marsh is great as the evil Mombi. Executive Producer George Lucas would later cast her as the villainess in Willow.

    The Wizard of Oz (1939)

    The Wizard of Oz (1939)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss The Wizard of Oz. A girl murders two witches.

    One of the classic movie musicals of all time, The Wizard of Oz represents the film industry shifting from black and white to color and planting a firm foot on the ground that sound in movies is the inevitable future. A lighter take on Oz than the quirky source material from author L. Frank Baum, the Wizard of Oz moves along at a zippy pace that has an ending that's a bit too convenient. In 2011, a UK stage musical was made based on this movie featuring new songs by Tim Rice Andrew Lloyd Webber.

    Revenge of the Nerds TV Pilot (1991)

    Revenge of the Nerds TV Pilot (1991)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the rare pilot for Revenge of the Nerds from 1991. Nerds join a fraternity to score with chicks with network TV level hijinks. 

    Taking the standard trope of TV shows spun off movies, this pilot episode retells its feature film inspiration as a single TV episode. Well, actually it's maybe the first half of the original movie. Things are toned down, there's a constant laugh track as was the style of the time (this has major Saved by the Bell vibes), and it drags like snail juice. This is the worst thing I've watched for Sequelcast 2 and Friends since Highlander: The Source. Stars Robbie Rist and Richard Gant of The Brady Bunch and Jason Goes To Hell fame, respectively.

    Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1987)

    Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1987)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise. The Tri-Lamb boys are at it again as they head to Florida. 

    A sequel so mediocre it took a lot of the cast convincing to even appear in it, Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise is a sanded off take on the first film with the requisite beach hijinks ensuing. Ogre (Donald Gibb) gets some nice moments, but this is an inferior copy of the original with less heart.

    Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

    Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

    Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Revenge of the Nerds. Two nerd friends meet more nerds when they enroll in college. 

    Cashing in on the sex comedy craze birthed by Animal House and Porky's, Revenge of the Nerds looks at the downtrodden geeks as its subject of satire. Many of the pranks in Revenge of the Nerds would be considered sex crimes today. Its entire cast is game for the broad comedy at hand.  Look for a young John Goodman as the football coach.

    A comedy that's rather problematic, even for the 1980s, Revenge of the Nerds has enough winning moments and great cast chemistry to make it worthwhile.

Smart and Laid-Back

Everyone knows about the Star Wars and The Shining, but let me tell you there is more! This show dives into forgotten and bizarre content that came after the originals. No one should watch the Shining mini-series, but everyone should listen to this podcast!

Listener ML ,

More depth than required, as it should be!

A perfect calibration between serious analysis and classic goofin' around.

I Am A Time Traveler From Outer Space & I Love Sequelcast2

In the world there are few true absolutes. These are the true guarantees that allow us to thrive as a culture, yet also keep us grounded into the now. They allow us to take our dreams with us on a journey to unimaginable heights and the slights amidst the falling sensation of doom. Death, taxes, life, death and Sequelcast2. The duality, the drama, the comedy and the insight which allow the very earth to spin daily is encompassed in the vision of the advanced commentary this show has collected as a gift, bestowed upon an unready and obviously unworthy audience, I highly recommend listening to this show. It’s changed the way I view the world and made me 69 percent smarter!
