Happy Independence Day, Earth! This week on The Last Row Podcast, we relive the disaster movie classic, Independence Day. As Drew and Badway reveal their shockingly poor knowledge of Presidential Office laws and regulations, they ask the tough questions about the film that are still on everyone’s mind, such as: did President Whitmore really sleep with Goldblum’s wife? Was President Whitmore actually a crappy president that was saved by an epic speech? How likely was Will Smith able to successfully fly an alien spacecraft just because “he saw it in action”? Why are aliens always portrayed as sexual predators? How hard is it to fly a plane drunk? All of these are answered, and more. As a bonus, the guys give their thoughts and rapid reactions to the recently released sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence.
This week on The Last Row: On Demand, Drew and Badway discuss Adam Sandler’s Netflix deal, and what it means for the future of the movie business. Now that Sandler made his final movie of the initial deal, who could potentially be next in line to side with Netflix? Stallone? Seagal? Cage? The guys also break down Sandler’s career and try to pinpoint the exact moment his movie quality went downhill. Finally, the guys rank their favorite SNL movies and play another round of Plot Fiction, featuring potential documentaries involving a tickle fetish and goat-to-human testicle transplants. Real or fake???
Have you ever wondered what a giant turtle looks like on horseback? Is it socially acceptable for a human to have a love scene with a mutant turtle? Is Shredder nothing more than a glorified pickpocket? All of these questions and much more are answered on an all “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” episode of The Last Row Podcast! Join Drew and Badway as they potentially ruin your childhood by looking back at all of the big-screen features and find out if they hold up over twenty years later. Also, the guys compare old-to-new as Badway gives his impressions of the newest installment: TMNT: Out Of The Shadows. Additionally, the guys cover everything, from toys, to the cartoons, to the ill-fated live action Fox series, argue CG vs real costumes, and break down the absurdly embarrassing old-school stage show: “Coming Out Of Their Shells”.
As Drew can attest, Badway can be difficult to handle on the set of The Last Row Podcast. This week’s On Demand episode focuses on the actors and actresses who are rumored to be divas on the sets of their films. The guys discuss the shade that Irish filmmaker John Carney threw at Keira Knightley recently, and speculate on who else in Hollywood is most likely to be a jerk to their castmates and directors. Additionally, they discuss the new character tidbits The Rock leaked about his character, “Hobbs” during Fast 8 filming. Finally, Badway attempts to stump Drew in another round of Plot Fiction.
