Movie Meltdown - Episode 148
This week, after a round of Geek Activities, we sit down and talk with comedian and sound effects master Michael Winslow! Then we revisit the 80's comedy stylings of "Police Academy". But how does it hold up to our modern mindset?
And though it may feel like we are caught in Joe Dante‘s Inferno, while we are there we still manage to discuss… Dexter, Tree of Life, The Walking Dead, the world’s largest comedy festival, oh there’s Sean Penn… hey Sean, a polar bear wandering by, That’s Kung Fu, Michael Myers, Friction, Flip Wilson, a reasonably likable doofus, Andre Braugher, The Palomino Riders, Jennifer Lawrence, Cheech and Chong, John Goodman, The Gong Show, how come they give Sandra Bullock half a size to small to wear?, Mother Teresa’s plane skidding into a crowd, Halloween 4 and 5, Tom Green, A Boy’s Life, Count Basie, Mos Def, Miranda July, cutting edge Soviet theater, Monty Python, was he crushed by a ton of Hallmark cards someone was trying to make into a fucking movie?, Jack Benny, $100 budget, Water Max, Gremlins, Stallone, baby Kim Cattrall, Homicide, Storytelling, Red Skelton, Mel Brooks, Pretty Little Liars, mobile homeless, X-Men: First Class, Nets and Traps, Benny Hill, The More then average White Band, finding a big box of DVD’s, National Lampoon Magazine, decent little filmmaking… wrapped in an enigma… just slathered with pretentious bullshit, let’s play dress-up and do crafts, Desperate Housewives, floating heads, Waterworld, Maria Bello, you don’t mess with no Brooklyn rabbit and $516.32.
Spoiler Alert: In most ways you can spoil “Police Academy”, we probably do.

Movie Meltdown - Episode 147
This week features special guest co-host Emma Caulfield. Star of the web series “Bandwagon“, the feature film “Darkness Falls” and a little show you might have heard of called “Buffy the Vampire Slayer“.
In honor of this week’s movie, we start off swapping movie scars from our childhood. And we forgo most standard “professional” questions and go straight for the geeky essentials. And Emma does not disappoint.
Then we discuss this week’s Sofa Theater feature: JAWS! The Spielberg blockbuster that changed the movie industry, left a definitive mark on pop culture for generations… and probably killed a lot of beach activity for several years.
And while basking in the appreciation of our applause app, we also mention… Poltergeist, Tarantino, Laura, Flash Gordon, dynamic and interesting female characters, Aliens, Take Shelter, being an actress in previous years versus today, Moby Dick, the Toht melting scene, remakes, Hitchcock, the creatures in the cantina, Kubrick, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Inception, being a drama queen, Jesus Christ Superstar, Empire of the Sun, I slept in my parent’s bed for a week, Rebecca, Super 8, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Birds and being deathly afraid of sharks. (Hmmm, I wonder what brought that on?)
Spoiler Alert: Hopefully they pulled you aside in school and sat you down for your government-sponsored viewing of “Jaws”. If not, write to your congressman. Oh yeah, and go watch the movie!
“I just think it mastered character and suspense and action - in a way that no other film really has done.”
