Put the town on alert, The Last Row Podcast is back with a new episode covering the 1997 disaster flick Dante’s Peak. Drew and Badway discuss mothers of deadbeat husbands, idiot townspeople, hot spring skinny dipping and being yanked from your vacation, only for your boss to suspend you. The guys also play a little volcanic “dead or alive?” and put the volcano through the Villain Scale.
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.
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, 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.
