Revenge is on The Last Row Podcast’s mind during a downright giddy discussion of The Karate Kid Part III (:The Ballad of Terry Silver). We discover why Silver tips over the villain scale with his diabolical revenge plot, nuclear waste disposal company, humble clothing, informative leg-sweeping textbooks, and his Daniel-san approved Toyota pickup truck. Other hot issues include: the anti-Batman, grand theft Bonsai, emergency plant surgeries, and that one time Daniel-san spooked a girl and got friend-zoned because his only buddy is an odd 70-year-old Japanese man. Additionally, Drew and Badway place values on movie props and engage in a True or False “making of” trivia game.
Why hasn’t Badway seen The Godfather movies yet? Did Drew cry at the end of The Dark Knight Rises? These burning questions and more are explored in a special “mailbag” edition of The Last Row Podcast. Get to know your hosts as the guys answer listener emails and give insight into who they really are. From their tales working in the “film industry” to learning which movies make Badway weep, this special episode is a window into the souls of two genuine movie lovers. Above all else, we finally get an answer to the age old question: which Nicolas Cage movie features his most ridiculous hair style ever?
Love is in the air, as The Last Row Podcast takes the nerd glasses off of She’s All That to reveal its true beauty. No topic is off limits, as Drew and Badway discuss old men playing teenagers, high school DJs, Taylor Vaughan’s bout with PBF (permanent bitch face), and a greased up Paul Walker wrestling Freddie Prinze Jr. in the locker room. The guys also go a bit off the rails to discuss the taboos of step-sibling marriage, revisit MTV’s Real World and Spring Break glory days, review a movie that doesn’t exist: 10 Things I Hate About Losing A Guy, and come full circle to pull a ‘She’s All That’ on She’s All That by turning the laughable teen comedy into an Oscar baiting tour de force.
After a week-long hiatus, The Last Row Podcast cooks up a new episode and gets back on track with a unique take on Under Siege 2: Dark Territory. Seagal topics include: Louisiana accents, face fatness, ego fatness, and his fake restaurant, Casey’s Dockside Bistro. Non-Seagal topics include: how a rookie would shoot an MP5, the myth that is Dark Territory, high school history teachers as effective evil geniuses, and tips on the correct way to insult a woman before you throw her off of a train. Additionally, the guys have some big recast ideas for the supporting characters and throw all structure to the curb while ranting on the movie’s nonstop absurdity.
The Last Row Podcast delves deep into the underground fight scene to bring you the lowdown on the 1988 Jean-Claude Van Damme classic, Bloodsport. When they aren’t butchering the character names of the film, Drew and Badway discuss the art of the montage, dramatic pauses, splits, and the questionable logic of gambling a woman’s safety on a magic trick. Other questions that are addressed: How does one enter the Kumite? Is Chong Li really a bad guy? Is the real life Frank Dux full of crap? The guys wrap up the episode by playing a game of “Fantasy Kumite,” plugging in their favorite classic characters into the tournament.
