Movie Meltdown - Episode 328
This week we are coming to you "live" from Wizard World: Louisville, where we recap our fun activities, a few celebrity sightings and discuss several movies we've seen lately. Plus we sit down with artist epyon5, who has explored artistic styles from the Renaissance old masters to stencils and pop culture imagery. So we discuss what led him down the twisted path of painting and how movies and pop culture have always crept into his work.
And as we realize that we fall completely outside the Venn Diagram of "normal", we also discuss... Bruce Campbell, John Barrowman, Swamp Thing, rebooting the variety show, it's like an earthquake at a junkyard, Marc Singer, Dean from Supernatural, laying out a good fight scene, Final Girl, blind boxes, goggles, Sugar Gliders, an epic battle scene between barbarians and gargoyles, best Ash contest, squished pennies, Transformers, that's no way to make a living, Loki, Marvel super heroes in bad made-for-TV-movie, I live in the basement, stunt butt, Jeepers Creepers, doing goth wrong, the man is against you, what comics were then versus now, Alien, climbing on the train car, for mature readers only, the other Quicksilver, chicken ring sandwiches, cute chicks in bondage gear, these are our people, The Crossroads Theater, the TV that has the two knobs, iconography and sainthood, iZombie, R.L.
