Movie Meltdown - Episode 188
Unlock the cage and let loose the beast that we know as Tom Hardy! Yes, we are back this week with not-so-special guest (according to Scooter) co-hosts director Scooter Downey and actress Rose Sirna!! As they sit in for this week’s Sofa Theater feature: Bronson. Both the star Tom Hardy and director Nicolas Winding Refn have gone on these days to more mainstream success. So we take a look at their work just before they broke through, with this story about Britain's most notorious prisoner - Charles Bronson.
And as we do our best to destroy Rose’s innocence, we also mention... Eskimo cookies, Thief, Billy Bob Thornton, if two hobbits had a baby, Fellini-vibe, reshoots, real life vs. cinematic interpretation, preparing you to be a drone, so Kevin Kline without being Kevin Kline, a mental picture of Rush Limbaugh, Ashton Kutcher, nihilistic and godless, Clean Shaven, Dominic Monaghan, movie stereotypes, The Fonz, Lost, breaking the fourth wall, Citizen Kane, getting in trouble in high school, Topher Grace, Sling Blade, Juan Mata, James Caan, the guy with the tennis racket, Raging Bull, being educated by movies and existential formaldehyde.
Spoiler Alert: Go watch “Bronson” before listening to this episode.
“It’s like Looney Tunes meets A Clockwork Orange or something?”
