This week’s On Demand episode highlights the hosts’ most anticipated film releases of 2017. Predictably, Drew favors comic books and Zac Efron’s abs, while Badway leans toward apes and aliens (space movies?!). Additionally, Drew tries his luck in an Oscars themed edition of Plot Fiction.
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.
On this week’s On Demand edition of The Last Row Podcast, Drew and Badway talk video game movie adaptations with the news of a Shinobi film in the works and the revival of the Tomb Raider series on the horizon. From there, the show goes off the rails as the conversation turns to memories of Nick Arcade, the idea of a side-scrolling movie, Drew’s dream of an Ecco the Dolphin live-action movie, and Badway’s literal record breaking backyard wrestling career. The guys wrap things up by playing a game of Plot Fiction where Drew tries to decipher which movie synopsis is real and which one Badway completely made up.
Welcome to the first episode of The Last Row: On Demand! Bi-weekly, we’ll release a minisode covering new and upcoming releases, share thoughts on what we’re currently watching, play some games, and any other free-flowing topics that may come up. This inaugural episode covers Drew’s excitement and Badway’s fears for the impending Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release, the beautiful snoozefest that was The Revenant, quick thoughts on the Netflix nostalgia porn, Fuller House, and a Razzie’s recap.
It’s time for Valentine’s Day, and what better film to release The Last Row Podcast’s inner freak than the super-steamy Twilight fanfic-turned-novel-turned-box office smash, Fifty Shades of Grey? Despite the film’s obvious shortcomings, Drew and Badway find a lot to love while analyzing the main characters’ dysfunctional relationship, examining Christian Grey’s stalking skills, and toying with the contents and actions in “the playroom.” Other topics include: rich-guy moves, acting like you’re losing at business, friendzones, oral fixations, filmmaking 101, the ramifications of selling off your “kinda girlfriend’s heirloom VW Bug, and much more. The guys wrap it up by trying to save the movie via re-cast, followed by a friendly game of “Legit Film or Skinemax Flick?”
Get your quarters ready, turn up the techno beats, and guard your brother’s soul…It’s time for MORTAL KOMBAT! The Last Row Podcast heads straight into Outworld to break down all of the Toasties, Get Over Here’s, Flawless Victories, and Liu Kang Bicycle Kick Screams you can handle. Drew and Badway uppercut important issues about the Mortal Kombat mythology such as: the accommodations at the tournament, the arbitrary rules for invading dimensions, the questionable fighter selection process, and the betting odds of Liu Kang’s eighty pound little brother versus Shang Tsung. Finally, the guys recast the fighters and debate the best “real life” fighters who would defend Earth if there were a real Mortal Kombat tourney.
