Ep. 85 - Overboard 1987 and 2018

January 10, 2019

OverboardPROMO-min.jpg

Peter is back after being thrown OVERBOARD for our first episode of 2019, but he gets his revenge on co-host Mike by taunting him over his lack of a shoe rack built by The Great Kurt Russell. As it turns out in that 1987 film his co-star Goldie Hawn also does not get such magnificent shelving for shoes and instead through the movie magic of amnesia finds out that she is married to Mr. Russell (life imitates art, I guess) and is now a blue collar mother of three. This original film gave birth to another remake but on this episode we are talking about the 2018 version starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris. And we were not amused. Hopefully you are with this episode though, which you can find at the links below:

Ep. 84 - Night of the Demon and Drag Me to Hell

January 3, 2019

NightofDemonDragMePROMO.jpg

2018 is over but we cynically expect 2019 to get a whole hell of a lot worse. And to help us with that doomsday predicting mood we bring on the biggest cinephile cynic we know, Ben Zuk of 99 FROM 99 to take in a double feature of NIGHT OF THE DEMON and DRAG ME TO HELL. And while Sam Raimi's 2009 film was loosely inspired by this 1957 horror movie, they both provide a great playbook with how to live with a curse. For instance one might want to try killing a cat? Or better yet, just leave that to the movies, you'll feel better about yourself and we'll feel better after you click on these links below:

Ep. 83 - How the Grinch Stole Christmas 1966 and 2000

December 28, 2018

ORGrinchPROMO2.jpg

For Christmas 2018 one of us decided to make a trip to theater to see Illumination's new animated GRINCH movie. And while Mike came away pleasantly surprised at this latest version of the Grinch cinematic universe, Peter truly played the part and stayed inside like a hermit to watch the 1966 and 2000 versions of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS. We debate the merits of telling this story in a longer form, animated vs. live action, and most importantly of all... do loyal dog companions really care if their Christmas treat says "naughty" or "nice" on it?

Ep. 82 - Miracle on 34th Street 1947 and 1994

December 5, 2018
DtrDwXWVYAACUAk.jpg
We double down on Christmas (supposedly there's a war on it) with a month of originals and remakes on this festivus for the rest of us. First thing we do is put Santa on trial with the 1947 and 1994 versions of MIRACLE ON 34th STREET, finding one more violent and unfortunately for that particular Santa... he also has the less impressive lawyer defending him. We'll let you decide (actually we do as no on else can hear you but your poor friends listening to you gripe about us) at the links below:

Ep. 76 - Rear Window and Disturbia

April 12, 2018

RearWindowDisturbiaPROMO.jpg

Guest Web Bist returns to ORIGINAL REMAKE discussing possibly host Mike's ALL TIME FAVORITE FILM in Alfred Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW. Is the enthusiasm shared for 2007's loose remake DISTURBIA? Well, no, but we have a lot of fun with this one debating the nuances of how we can root for peeping tom Jimmy Stewart, who chooses his creepy activities over a life with Grace Kelly... and yet we still hate Shia Labeouf SO MUCH MORE. So maybe none of this is surprising, but to wrap up these shownotes with some bit of new information... Web and Mike have a new podcast coming soon called TRILOGY TALK. More later but until then you can follow THIS PODCAST at the links below:

Ep. 75 - The Taking of Pelham One Two Three 1974 and 2009

April 11, 2018

Pelham123PROMO.jpg

For READY PLAYER ONE we do some counting of our own, though as usual we can only manage getting up to two movies. No matter, as this time our original film is the Walter Matthau starring THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE from 1974 and our remake casts Denzel Washington in 2009 for the same part as a train conductor trying to negotiate the release of hostages in New York's subway tunnels. If you want to continue the counting game, try your hand at how many expletives John Travolta throws out during his negotations and also how many times host Peter lets you know that he continues to hate Mr. Matthau. Co-host Mike hates writing up these show notes so let's end it here with some begging to follow at the links below:

Ep. 74 - Attack the Block and Super 8

April 10, 2018

AttacktheSuper8PROMO.jpg

On this episode we gather up our friends (more specifically Peter and his partner Mike the Troll) to take on not one but TWO alien invasions in the films ATTACK THE BLOCK and SUPER 8. Separated by months in the States back in 2011, these two films share similar premises of teenagers coping with an alien presence in their small communities and we share our own experiences growing up to inform our outlook. Since we can't (or won't) share our teenage battles fighting aliens from outer space, we do our usual thing and stick to the movies. And that's something you can do with us at the links below:

On this episode we journey to a place that Hollywood has been many times before... the STAR TREK universe. In particular we look at the first feature film for this franchise with 1979's STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE and the J.J. Abrams reboot in 2009. Which jerk Captain Kirk do you prefer? The back from retirement William Shatner version from the 1979 film OR the hothead amateur played by Chris Pine in in the 2009 reboot? Find out what two redshirts think here and at the links below:

Ep. 70 - The Jackie Robinson Story and 42

February 21, 2018

Jackie42PROMO.jpg

To promote the new indie film BLACK PANTHER we go back to a 2013 film starring Chadwick Boseman, 42. In this film, Mr. Boseman has the challenge of not only playing Jackie Robinson who broke the color barrier in basseball, but also to try and best Mr. Robinson who played himself in THE JACKIE ROBINSON STORY. This is a first in ORIGINAL REMAKE, although it will not be the first time we do a little sports talk radio. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on if you are a baseball fan, one host has to break these movies down in basketball terms and the other still laments Kevin Durant not making his way to the Celtics. And with that we just lost all of our movie podcast listeners... did we mention that this in celebration of a little movie called BLACK PANTHER?

Ep. 67 - No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits

January 28, 2018

NoStringsFriendsPROMO.jpg

 

On this episode we make no firm commitment to either of 2011’s films about sleeping around as we enjoy both NO STRINGS ATTACHED and FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. We of course try to create the perfect couple out of the two on-screen pairs of Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher going up against Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, but also the great supporting characters played by Lake Bell, Greta Gerwig, and Mindy Kaling. Along the way we prove to only be suitable discussing such matters about movie characters as we relay a couple of times when a “friends with benefits” philosophy has backfired on us in real life.

So don’t worry about being trapped in a long-term relationship with us… though we would appreciate a subscribe and any follows from the links down below!

What better way to end or start your year than by having an affair with your charming hosts Peter and Mike? If that’s asking too much at the very least you should check out our latest episode on AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER and the film featuring characters inspired by this older movie, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE. We debate the merits of removing the burgeoning love between Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr versus the slow burn leading to love with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. The hope is that we pitch this cinematic classic better than Rita Wilson, though one of the hosts does admit to a bit of ugly crying. Happy New Year!
