In this special edition* of The Last Row Podcast, Drew and Badway rapid-react to the new 4-hour “Snyder Cut” of Justice League, recently released on HBO Max. The guys discuss the benefits of streaming releases, the pros and cons of giving directors artistic freedom, movie length, the slippery slope of fan influence on filmmaking, and a brief breakdown of the differences between the Snyder Cut and the “JOSStice League” cut of 2017. The guys also put Steppenwolf through the Villain Scale.
*DISCLAIMER: this podcast is NOT 4+ hours long, despite Drew’s original vision. Badway stripped him of his artistic freedom.
The Last Row Podcast is back to pay tribute to the greatest drama about a fictional metal band: the 2001 Mark Wahlberg “classic” Rock Star. Drew and Badway forego the same old jokes about this movie that have been done to death, to bring you their crappy originals, including: the invention of leather pant-specific underwear, Drew wanting this movie’s tagline on his tombstone, and wondering if Chris Cole learned from the Tom Brady school of leadership by constantly berating his bandmates into playing perfectly. The guys also rate the Steel Dragon tracks. Better follow your dreams, man….and download this episode now, because we all die young…
This week, the disaster of a podcast that is The Last Row Podcast brings you Drew and Badway’s thoughts on the 2004 disaster movie, The Day After Tomorrow. Topics include: 8-8 movies, disaster movie tropes, the director’s strange obsession with the genre, bad fathers, freeze-proof camping tents, and if you would follow life or death advice of a kid because “his dad said so.” Finally, the guys put the entire storm through the Villain Scale.
Drew and Badway return from cover-story computer sales jobs to bring you another episode of The Last Row Podcast, this time covering the 1994 classic True Lies. The guys break out the sodium amytal to fact check serious statements such as ‘This is Jimmy Cameron’s best movie’ (False), ‘This is Bill Paxton’s best role’ (True), ‘Harry Tasker put the entire country at risk in order to save his marriage’ (True), and ‘Henchmen on skis are effective shooters’ (VERY False). When we tell you this is a great episode, you’re just going to have to trust us.
We’ll see you again on Thursday, February 11th for our next episode.
Just like Batman is Forever, Drew and Badway apparently are Forever, as the The Last Row Podcast returns from a long hiatus to tackle the Caped Crusader in all of Gotham’s neon 90’s glory. Topics include: Being “done” with Bruce’s dead parents, Val Kilmer’s performance and legacy as Batman/Bruce Wayne, a spirited Alfred Pennyworth comparison, Dr. Chase Meridian’s steamy one-track mind, how Two-Face and The Riddler rank on the all new Villain Scale, and many more odds and ends, including the effectiveness of Scuba Thugs. Thanks for listening, it’s great to be back!
We’ll see you again on Thursday, January 28, when we tackle the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, True Lies.
