This week we continue onward with the Year of the Sequel by looking at 1993's Wayne's World 2. Can a quickly turned around sequel to a surprise hit based upon a SNL skit possibly succeed? Also, some unexpected and unrelated sequel news gets discussed. Party on, listeners!
This week on Invasion of the Podcast, Steve saw Black Widow in the theater and Paul saw it at home and talk about the future of same day releases and physical media (along with a very spoiler free discussion of the film), if the era of 'Git Gud' is coming to a close, a dude finds a lot of balls, we close out Pale Boy Summer™ with a look at Kathryn Bigelow's 1987 vampire western Near Dark and how much we miss Bill Paxton, and Paul makes Steve play the darkest game we have made so far.
This week Steve returns and we are joined by Terry from the Strange Highways podcast as we talk about the passing of Richard Donner, Zack Snyder making a star war-ish, weird DIY jobs, and continue our Pale Boy Summer™ by looking at George Romero's 1977 Martin, a film about a young man that may or may not be a vampire, and Steve asks us 'What Can I Bring?'
This week Richard is again riding shotgun as we talk about grown ups getting upset at kids toys, is Chapelwaite worth visiting, we find out what we would spend counterfeit money on if we could get away with it, and we continue Pale Boy Summer™ by taking a look at Tobe Hooper's 1979 made for TV adaptation of Stephen King's Salem's Lot and why it holds up today, and Paul busts out the Nacho Hat to make Richard determine which vampire will win it all.
This week on Invasion of the Podcast Steve is away on assignment and friend of the show Richard rides shotgun as we talk about non-Star Wars people writing Star Wars, Jaws not getting a bigger reboot, what food item we would attack fast food employees over, and we kick off Pale Boy Summer™ with a look at 1978's Zoltan: The Hound of Dracula aka Dracula's Dog aka The Worst Dog Owners Ever and Richard challenges Paul with a game of real or fake metal band names.
This week we get a bonus secret news story before getting on board with this week's Year of the Sequel film, 1990's Die Hard 2: Die Harder. Want a sequel that does everything to remind of the original film but somehow not do it quite as good? Yippie Ki Yay Ya Do!
This week Steve talks about his experience of watching two filmed on video horror films, Paul talks about going back to the Burning Crusade, Rob Zombie is making a Munsters film, a mobile game makes a terrible mistake in the name of Pride Month, we discuss the Hulu Marvel animated series M.O.D.O.K. and how it makes you care about a guy who just wants to take over the world and enslave you, and Paul makes Steve take an acronym quiz. Will he P.A.S.S?
This week we talk about our Memorial Day holiday, Steve ventures outside to a Quiet Place, Paul stays inside for a A Loud Place (aka Army of the Dead), we hope we don't get caught cheese handed, we talk about the 8 eight episode second season of Netflix's Love, Death, and Robots, and Steve has Paul create 6 perfect Cannon films.
This week we mix up our Year of the Sequel with a callback to our Year of Cannon by looking at American Ninja 2: The Confrontation. Can Cannon handle a sequel to one of their own original properties? Why do Ninjas show up without warning to ruin a fun day at the beach? Was Steve James allergic to sleeves? Join us as we get into three different fights at the same bar and end up at a ninja cloning community college as we try to answer these questions and more.
This week we talk about cheating on each other by doing other podcasts, watching 5 Dirty Harry films within 24 hours, MST3K living yet again, some cops have to wrangle a crocodile out of a parking lot, and we get into the the thorny but worthwhile discussion about 'fixing' art and what the means for the creator and for those that interact with the content, and Paul challenges Steve to figure out which poorly translated movie title is the real one that was used overseas.
