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.
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.
In Episode 69 of The Last Row Podcast, Drew and Badway occupy the same space, at the same time, to analyze the JCVD fan favorite, Timecop. Topics include: gratuitous nude scenes, secret pregnancies, convoluted villain plans, roller coaster time machines, and post-time travel psychological counseling. The guys also talk about the actual plot of the movie for maybe 3 minutes.
Use your magical golden tickets to hop inside The Last Row Podcast Studios, and join Drew and Badway as they fondly remember the Arnold Braunschweiger classic, Last Action Hero. The facilities aren’t quite as urine soaked as Nick’s Theater, and not quite as many whores and drug addicts, but we promise to NOT saddle you with an annoying, whiny, horrible-acting child sidekick. Be prepared for about 10 minutes of discussion on the movie, and 45 minutes of tangents and digressions!
It’s time for another Nic Cage episode of The Last Row Podcast! Drew and Badway give their take on the unfriendly skies of Con Air. Topics include: Cage hair, bad accents, prison fathers, and much more. The guys also compare and rank the best all-time airplane movies, and finish with some listener mail.
There’s no getting around it. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is a terrible movie. That doesn’t stop The Last Row Podcast from having some fun with it! Drew and Badway spend about a minute discussing what went right and about 50 minutes discussing what went wrong, ultimately devolving into a conversation about how the movie compares to the production quality of an “adult film” parody of itself. Things go downhill from there. Prepare yourself. Things get Toasty.
