Movie Meltdown - Episode 185
Recorded "live" at Days of the Dead in Indianapolis, this
week we welcome special guest co-host
An accomplished actor, Sean has been in many films over the years
from Twister to Waterworld to the upcoming
Hatchet 3. But horror fans probably know him best at the
lovable Roach from Wes Craven’s The People Under the
Stairs. We talk about Sean’s career and he sits in for this
week's Sofa Theater feature: Spider-Man. In the
wake of the recent Spider-Man hype, we revisit Sam Raimi’s 2002
version of Spider-Man and compare it to the recent release
of The Amazing Spider-Man. Plus Misty and Jay join in, as
we feature Misty's book segment: "I Can Read!" and the
book Bad-Off Boris and the Cupcake Cave-In, written by
Scott Mallory with illustrations by Rob E. Brown.
And while wading through our muddled memory trying to remember when Frankenhooker was released, we also mention... having a trading card addiction, All Saints Eve, Marc Webb, Lisa Kudrow, Selena Gomez, Joss Whedon, Idle Hands, Dorothy... 50 Years Later, Emma Stone, Bill Paxton, Mantooth, James Dean Peter Parker, The Groundlings, working with Tobey Maguire, rooting for the zombie down by the creek, storm chasers, Daniel Roebuck, The Avengers, being stalked by Jessica Alba, hating Macy Gray, eatin’ squirrels and wearing ear necklaces, Renfield, taking his mask off, The Disney Channel, Adam Green, Sally Field, B.J. McDonnell, half a Spider-Man, Dennis Leary and who’s watching Carl?!
Spoiler Alert: Spoilers for the 2002 movie, Spider-Man as well as random spoilers for season 2 of The Walking Dead. You have been warned!
“It is almost weird to go back and look at the Raimi one now, because it does seem innocent. It really is this... wide-eyed comic book movie.”
