Movie Meltdown - Episode 433

This week we return to our coverage of the Lexington Comic & Toy Convention as we discuss acting and directing with Jonathan Frakes. Plus we cover some of the variety of movies we’ve seen recently.

And while we have a very special interaction with that girl in the stairwell, we also mention... The Octagon, Amityville: The Awakening, Leatherface, The Orville, Pauly Shore, Southbound, Alien: Covenant, Atomic Blonde, The Librarians, I call it speaking at performance volume, The Searchers, I would be killed by my own sleepwear, why is there no mystery anymore, Cameron Monaghan, the huge ninja-craze of the 80’s, Bella Thorne, is that just her gait, Shenandoah, the writers are on the set with you, gummy worms and a sandwich, Vanessa Hudgens, they wanna see in 30 frames, Stephen Dorff, he waits for them to fall into zany traps, 1967 Chevy Sport Van, North and South, Triangle meets Slacker, that one chick lived, a little more money… a little more time, Dean Devlin, this kid… wearing a cow’s head, the worst waiter in the history of New York City, Til Schweiger, fabulous hair guy, Tie a Yellow Ribbon, none of the rules apply, voice-over/whisper, she’s an honorable lady, that stairwell scene, guest villain of the week, is there a time before Beastmaster, nobody likes Xenomorph more than I and making a living as a trombone player.

“When you’re a director of a television show that is already on the air, your job, your responsibility and what your challenge is… to present, direct, deliver… the best version of their show that you can.”
