Movie Meltdown - Episode 297
This week, the trio is back to attempt to focus long enough to discuss our Sofa Theater movie of the week - The Raid: Redemption. But we’re only halfway counting this as a Sofa Theater feature because the tangents return to take us way off course. Luckily we end up in some pretty interesting and funny conversations along the way.
And as we try to figure out how we kill those damned birds, we also spiral off into... adding zombies, he’s a lawyer that does backflips, hostile planets, The Flashpoint Paradox, John Woo, so many orgies, Aqua-Man, #zoeblack, Annabelle, air vent crawling, tell Chris Pratt, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it’s a 3D world people…it’s a 3D world, the eagles, praying mantis is two fingers, Alfred, Prometheus 2, I love that he’s genociding people, Kung Fu Theater, saving Gandalf’s ass, zombie North Koreans, Jesus, magical future first aid spray, the biggest troll on the planet, Chewy’s alimony, F-y’all… I’m Benedict Cumberbatch, so he’s the Randy Quaid of this story, Interstellar, knife fighting, May, having an alien removed from your stomach, everyone left on Earth is uber-depressed, if Jon Snow dies… we riot, Jennifer Connelly, You can never beat the eagles… and why aren’t they just there from the beginning, the brother of the bad guy… is another bad guy, Salacious Crumb, shaving her head, Tony Jaa, Precinct 13, hamster style, Gotham, Exorcism films, getting it from both perspectives, Requiem for a Dream, Donnie Yen, the Millennium Falcon, found footage, Marco Polo, Bellatrix Lestrange, True Detective, Die Hard in Russia, running away from a demon, if being The Flash for justice doesn’t work out…, knees blown out, caves need cleanin’ too, so much stabbing, all-terrain feet, Oculus, driving a Cadillac into an engineer and then having some barbeque, Misery-ing George RR Martin, Zoloft and reverse guillotine is where it is.
Spoiler Alert: We kind of ruin one of the reveals in “The Raid: Redemption” so go watch it if you want. But otherwise, we don’t go too far into the plot.
“It’s like John Woo films without guns!”
