John went to C2E2 in Chicago this last weekend and ended up on the WGN Evening News. We geek out over old-school He-Man cartoons, Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future, and we open up a dimensional gateway to Eternia so we can talk about Masters of the Universe. And we have the best fantasy-cast for a He-Man reboot ever. We hope you enjoy… and “All Hail, King Lubic!”
It’s episode #125… our Sasquatchcentennial! (Or whatever you call 125.) It’s also a longer than usual episode as the gang’s all together and we talk about Spider-Man: Homecoming, It, Justice League, Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie, Tommy Wiseau’s The Room and our favorite movie sword fights of all time. And, oh yeah… this little fantasy adventure called The Princess Bride.
We start off by talking a little Comic Con and the amazing Justice League and Wonder Woman trailers, which you can check out here. Then we dive into the high fantasy world of Ridley Scott’s Legend. All of this and Pat just wants one of the fairies to freakin’ blink already!
Could the famous line from the Kurgan in the church scene be an apropos summary of the Highlander series? Is it a movie that should have spawned all of the *ahem* “sequels” that it did, or was it better as a one-and-done? Also, we talk about how Bob Iger and John McTiernan may have lost their minds. It’s all “a garage sale at the home of a berserk screenwriter” this episode. If you feel the Quickening and wish to join our little Gathering, we’d love to have you along for the ride.
