Movie Meltdown - Episode 359

This week we are coming to you "live" from Fandomfest where we sit down and talk with Anthony Michael Hall. We find out how he got into the business and what led him to iconic roles in National Lampoon's Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Edward Scissorhands and so many more! Plus we discuss some other interesting activities from the weekend, like meeting the original Godzilla and Ultraman, eating cheap sushi and trying to fix a broken R2 unit.

And while we get adjusted like a giant action figure, we also mention... Saturday Night Live, War Machine, Musso & Frank's, Harold Ramis, the new Western, Abu Dhabi, Ben Affleck, Jack Nicholson and Harry Dean Stanton, properly approved by Ultra-Man, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, King Lear, the late great Steve Allen, rock n' roll theater, I'm gonna keep doing this... 'til I'm an old man, and I'm gonna show people what I can do, Six Pack, what Netflix has done, Lynn Stalmaster, grocery store sushi, deconstructing stereotypes, they represent 25% of the box office in this last decade, Brad Pitt, a bootlegger, Bruce Dern, Community, before video village, Lorne Michaels feeds off of it, a bitchin' suit, Kate McKinnon, Tim Burton, Diane Lane, a farm system for comics and three brothers on Gunsmoke.
