Movie Meltdown - Episode 470
This week the Meltdown Gang gets together to create an audio culinary dish made of stacked layers of movie geekdom. Listen as we add layer after layer of geeky content... like a good lasagna. And eventually, we'll discuss a very specific - "bad lasagna".
And while we fight off nazis and vampires, we also cover… The Predator, Derry Girls, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Leave No Trace, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Clue, Red Eye, The Drive-in Movie Channel, The Howling Man, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, R.L. Stine, hiding in the abbey, sit down giant Pikachu, have another chili dog, six or seven other people tied to chairs with similar cuts on their arms, has opened up a whole new world of possibilities to keep me from doing real things, we have the VHS, a weird fake spider book, Christopher Plummer is... fine, the old traditional scrolling through all the streaming apps, a peoples-worth of remains, Rachel McAdams, during the Depression these two brothers moved to town, it's probably the most devastating movie and scene from last year, genius Tim Curry, red and blue 3D movies, a whimsical tone, most least haunted, the multi-talented Chuck Connors, you've got to drink that deal with all the ghosts, William Sadler, Phantom of the Paradise, weirdly more academic, choose your own adventure, Ben Foster, later-era Wes Craven, a Civil War era man that was supposed to be haunted, it reminded me of when movies didn't have to bum me out all the time, Cillian Murphy and that weird manic cocaine energy.
“...it revels in its own stupidity... but the level of stupidity is brilliant.”
