This week’s On Demand episode of The Last Row Podcast focuses on Movie Franchise Crossovers. With news that MIB23 is a go, Drew and Badway ponder which former crossovers worked, which were a disaster, and dream up their own terrible mash-ups: Fingers crossed for Twilight v. Van Helsing! Next, the guys discuss Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s involvement in the upcoming Jumanji remake, leading to a breakdown of their favorite pro wrestler movie roles. Other quick hits include: Jeff Goldblum trolling the world by teasing his involvement in an upcoming superhero movie, Badway’s terrible Goldblum impression, WCW vs WWF in the Monday Night Wars, and we find out whether or not Bonesaw is ready.
In the spirit of this summer’s movie slate, Drew and Badway roll out another sequel to The Last Row’s On Demand series. The guys break down the Summer Blockbusters set for release (spoiler alert: superheroes and sequels dominate), giving their quick takes on Captain America: Civil War, TMNT2, X-Men #412, Independence Day Not Starring Will Smith, The Purge 56, Now You See Me 2 (this one’s not a joke, they really made a 2nd one), a few “Space Movies” and much more. Other topics include: The new Star Wars Rogue One trailer, Badway’s love of MTV’s The Real World (yes he’s over 30, sad), favorite underappreciated 90s flicks, and a rousing game of “Jack Black Was In That???”
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.
Football is back, and who better to lead us into the new season than the legendary Shane Falco and the underdog classic, The Replacements. After extensive film study, Drew and Badway scout all of the major players from the movie and pair them with their real-life NFL counterparts, as well as lay out their possible playing futures beyond the closing credits. The guys also talk favorite football movies, compare Falco’s skills to other famous movie QBs, what to do when your truck gets flipped over (just leave it there), and figure out the best way to discreetly rig an NFL game.
It’s back to school week, and The Last Row Podcast is celebrating by rolling out our take on the high school romances of 10 Things I Hate About You. In between pondering the modeling career of Joey “Lips Waterman” Donner and analyzing the romance novel writing of Ms. Perky, the guys take an extended look at the courtship tactics and the probability of long term success of each relationship within the film. Additionally, Drew and Badway compare Larry Miller’s “dad” role to other “single dad raising daughters” characters in 90s movies, as well as scoring Bogie Lowenstien’s party against other similar high school movie ragers. Finally, the hosts try (and fail) to properly create haikus for each budding romance.
Haters gonna hate, and Drew and Badway are back to hate on the haters of the internet who just love to hear themselves complain about upcoming movie releases. The guys at The Last Row Podcast ponder the origin story of the internet hater (AOL chatrooms), question where the outlet for hate existed pre-internet, and cower at the thought of a Ghostbusters-esque River Of Slime forming under the Googleplex. Other topics include: the coining of the term Retrospective Hate, ranking Vincent Chase’s movies, debating the T-800’s ideal day job, live-tweeting church, and the defense for Zack Snyder and Michael Bay. All discussions circle around The Entourage Movie, Terminator Genisys, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the Ghostbusters reboot.
