This week, The Last Row Podcast turns to the disaster movie genre, with a focus on The Rock’s San Andreas. Drew and Badway compare the earthquake epic to other natural disaster flicks, pondering on and off-screen body counts, overall mood, and whether Badway would be of any use in an emergency (he’s not). Other topics include: rioting, the ethics of saving your family over helping hundreds of others, disaster movie casting characteristics, and examining the future of the on-screen relationships after the credits roll.
This week on The Last Row: On Demand, Drew and Badway are discussing Predator sequels, Jurassic World, and play another round of “Plot Fiction”. Points of discussion include: The Predator’s history of crappy sequels and the need to keep trying, Drew’s insistence that The Rock be in every action movie, why Badway DOESN’T want Arnold Schwarzenegger in it, Predator vs Kevin McCallister, the idea of using raptors as military weapons, how Disney owns the world after Captain America: Civil War made a kajillion dollars in two weeks, and much more!
Avoid the voodoo curse by listening to The Last Row’s episode on Steven Seagal’s classic, Marked For Death! Drew and Badway are talking ponytails, poor attempts at voodoo curses, jackets with animals on them, and the effectiveness of threatening a doctor to make sure your niece doesn’t die. Other topics include: Jimmy Fingers and his friend in the closet, Screwface as an all-time villain, bad guy lairs, movie bone snaps, and how Seagal killed Screwface 6 times. The episode wraps up with a game of “Seagal Direct-to-DVD Movie Title or Classic Hip-Hop Album?”

On this week’s On Demand edition of The Last Row Podcast, Drew and Badway talk video game movie adaptations with the news of a Shinobi film in the works and the revival of the Tomb Raider series on the horizon. From there, the show goes off the rails as the conversation turns to memories of Nick Arcade, the idea of a side-scrolling movie, Drew’s dream of an Ecco the Dolphin live-action movie, and Badway’s literal record breaking backyard wrestling career. The guys wrap things up by playing a game of Plot Fiction where Drew tries to decipher which movie synopsis is real and which one Badway completely made up.
