This week’s On Demand episode of The Last Row Podcast focuses on Movie Franchise Crossovers. With news that MIB23 is a go, Drew and Badway ponder which former crossovers worked, which were a disaster, and dream up their own terrible mash-ups: Fingers crossed for Twilight v. Van Helsing! Next, the guys discuss Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s involvement in the upcoming Jumanji remake, leading to a breakdown of their favorite pro wrestler movie roles. Other quick hits include: Jeff Goldblum trolling the world by teasing his involvement in an upcoming superhero movie, Badway’s terrible Goldblum impression, WCW vs WWF in the Monday Night Wars, and we find out whether or not Bonesaw is ready.
The Last Row Podcast turns thirty episodes old! Drew and Badway celebrate by discussing and enjoying the Cage/Travolta masterpiece, Face/Off! Key topics include: that weird face-touch move the Archers do, Castor Troy’s villain box of goodies, the absurdity of using a Wilhelm Scream on a toe shot, preserving Travolta’s face in a bowl of water, and pointing out the OBVIOUS reason why a wife could tell her real husband isn’t in bed with her. Eventually, the guys get serious and analyze the number one rule of surviving a Mexican Standoff, question the accuracy of moviebodycounts.com, and argue whether a speedboat or an airplane is a better getaway vehicle.
In the spirit of this summer’s movie slate, Drew and Badway roll out another sequel to The Last Row’s On Demand series. The guys break down the Summer Blockbusters set for release (spoiler alert: superheroes and sequels dominate), giving their quick takes on Captain America: Civil War, TMNT2, X-Men #412, Independence Day Not Starring Will Smith, The Purge 56, Now You See Me 2 (this one’s not a joke, they really made a 2nd one), a few “Space Movies” and much more. Other topics include: The new Star Wars Rogue One trailer, Badway’s love of MTV’s The Real World (yes he’s over 30, sad), favorite underappreciated 90s flicks, and a rousing game of “Jack Black Was In That???”
This week on an “anything goes” On Demand version of The Last Row Podcast, Drew and Badway ponder the pros and cons of a movie theater that will make you pay extra to punch you in the butt while you watch, preview the release of “Hardcore Henry” (whose title sounds like a porno director), and read a listener email involving Nicolas Cage and Steven Seagal. Within these topics, other points of interest include: movie theaters in furniture stores, why assigned seating in theaters is a terrible idea, the possible revival of the XXX theater, gimmick filmmaking, Steven Seagal’s uniqueness, and a phonetics lesson on the name Shawn/Shaun/Sean.
