Movie Meltdown - Episode 193

This week we hit the road and head up to one of those convention-type things. And while we're there we talk to The Chiodo Brothers! The guys who not only brought us "Killer Klowns from Outer Space", but over the years have also worked on "Vincent", "The Simpsons", "Team America: World Police", "Pee Wee's Big Adventure", "Critters", and many more projects! 

Then we talk to Jenette Goldstein, otherwise known as Vasquez from "Aliens"! With Jenette we discuss assuming the very different look and character of Vasquez as well as continuing to work with James Cameron over the years. 

Plus we stick around for a little of the after party that evening. Then we reminisce about our run-in with The Terminator's Linda Hamilton. You'll not only hear about our interractions with her, but also her experience with a bowl full of gummi bears.   

And as the Chiodo agruement rages on whether the Sea-Monkeys should be wearing shoes or have webbed feet, we also discuss... The French Connection, Lollypop Chainsaw, Tim Burton... this young animator at Disney, Gary Sinise, Megan Fox... who??, Soylent Green, V, Large Marge, home of the big-ass hamburger, Esophageal Cancer, Matt Frewer, Dark Passage, Sebastian Bach, naked John Lithgow, Vincent, working in the S.A.S., 1038 pages, Humphrey Bogart, deep-fried fair food, what was the scariest thing you could see?, Christopher Walken, Nick Park, being a gymnast, don't get the applesauce, Corin Nemec, Forrest Gump, yard stick people, Marc Singer, The Beast from the Egg, god help you if you're lazy or incompetent, The Stand, POV shots, I love the fair, Desmond Harrington, experimenting with stop-motion, Gale Anne Hurd, shhhh...
