Derich, Josh, and Evan take a stroll through the adrenaline-fueled cinematic career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. We even talk about Twins. Gotta love Twins. Well, not really. But it has charms. You know it does. Admit it.
This time around, we're taking a look at Robert Zemeckis - a most controversial figure around the Midnight Movie offices. Hear about his humble beginnings! Hear everyone praise Roger Rabbit, and find out just how many actors were offered the lead role before Hoskins! Hear how Zemeckis sold his soul to digital madness! Hear Derich rant about his deep, profound hatred of Forrest Gump!
We take an in-depth look at the life and career of the late, great George A. Romero. His work means a great deal to more than one of us, so there's a lot to unpack - the two Dead trilogies, the weird experiments like Season of the Witch and Knightriders, his early days working with the likes of Mr. Rogers and O.J. Simpson, his collaborations with Stephen King, his silent periods. This is a good'un.
Derich and Josh discuss the rocky career of John McTiernan, a real intellectual and an artist who just got shoehorned into making action pictures. To hear the guy speak, you would think he'd be a director of art films or dramas. Movies like Predator and Die Hard are successful largely because of him and his artful approach. It's a shame that his career petered out like it did - both due to declining box office performance, and serious legal matters. All this is discussed at length.
We take a look at the work of Paul Thomas Anderson, one of our greatest living filmmakers. Our longest episode, which is odd considering we've covered far more extensive filmographies. There's just a lot to discuss there. Learn about the man and his films and hear us blather on about our opinions and such. Infotainment!
The boys discuss Oliver Stone; Derich is a huge fan, Josh is not, and Evan falls somewhere in between. Learn about the man and his films, hear us chat and argue about it all. Lots of praise for Talk Radio. Hear Evan defend his inexplicable love for Any Given Sunday!
