In this episode we welcome a very special guest, Autumn Greer. As a Radio Free Midworld all star, she helps us make sense of a very loose Stephen King adaptation. Also, Richard Dawson is gauche enough to make a steroid joke in an Arnold movie. As you might expect, this leads directly to his sudden, violent death.
For more Dawson related fun, we recommend you check out this nugget of YouTube gold:
This one’s coming in hot folks, after some unforseen technical difficulties with the Conan episode we recorded last week, we’re kicking off the Summer of Sven with a Predator episode we recorded this morning. Whatever, this movie’s awesome and we loved talking about it.
So this is a new idea we’re trying. In addition to our regularly scheduled episodes, we’re occasionally doing current movies as date night episodes. Going forward, we’ll be releasing these as Patreon rewards while the movie is still in theaters and then dropping them into the regular feed when the DVD comes out. We’re releasing the Wonder Woman episode early partly to give everyone a little taste of what these will be, but mostly to encourage folks to get out to the theater to help send Warner Brothers the message that you can make even more money on a movie that makes sense and is good. Go see Wonder Woman.
This time on Laser Discotheque we watch Cutthroat Island, the movie that took pirates out of the multiplex for nearly a decade. Renny Harlin throws good money after bad on an astounding scale, and after we had so much fun with Die Harder, too. Guess they can’t all be Captain Blood.
