Movie Meltdown - Episode 170
This week we tackle a juggernaut of the film world... TAXI DRIVER. A movie that has massively worked it’s way into the pop culture. But in re-watching it, we realize the bad-ass and cool associations it has today, may be misguided. So we try to dig in and see what’s really going on with the film and the character of Travis Bickle.

Movie Meltdown - Episode 169
This week, the gloves (and the earrings) come off as we prepare to do battle with The Thing! In this, The Thing Super Special, we address things all Thing-related including our Sofa Theater feature: The Thing (2011) as well as how it relates to The Thing (1982), The Thing from Another World and the novella “Who Goes There?”. Including comments on...the clothes question, selective memory, Tom Woodruff Jr., the darkness of The Thing, Howard Hawks, “Who Can it be Now?”, blowtorches in the Antarctic, the Brad Pitt of Norway, a super-nice military, traffic in the Antarctic, fighting the cycle of remakes... and the REAL reason you can’t trust The Thing. (P.S. - Just a note... let the credits play on The 2011 Thing.)
