Hollywood’s just announced that they’re rebooting the ‘Shaft’ films, but Tam reckons he can do better that the director of ‘Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer’. Tam introduces a new generation of the Shaft Family to the gritty world of modern-day Harlem – whatever that’s like.
This week’s episode is probably NSFW. Probably.
Everyone loves a good foreign film every once in a while, right? This week, our guest Jan Lukas from German podcast ‘Kompendium des Unbehagens’ introduces us to the Japanese film “Air Doll” and his idea for a spinoff prequel.
We’re up all night for a BRAND NEW EPISODE! (direct link) Here’s what I’ve got for you this week:
A whole new world, A new fantastic episode of The Broken Elevator! This isn’t the first time we’ve tackled Disney, but it is for me. With Moana out this week, I tell Deeby three fairy tales that could potentially become films, and he helps me take the best idea from Zero to Hero. (direct link)…
Tam looks back at Doctor Strange’s 1963 comic book debut in this week’s episode, and tries to turn an unrelated story in the same issue into Marvel’s next big franchise. But– he hasn’t read the comic.
With Wumi’s help, a two line synopsis for ‘We Search The Stars!’ and a bunch of nameless characters, can Tam make a good story?
Merry Halloween! This week we go to www.horrortheque.com, find an old horror film and modernise the crap out of it. Deeby gives ‘Nosferatu’ an arthouse spin, Wumi hates horror, but questions reality with ‘Fear in the Night’, and Tam gives some gore to ‘The Brain That Wouldn’t Die’.
Tam takes a Magical Mystery Tour to 1969 in his Beatles-inspired pitch. With A Little Help From his friends – including guest Barney – Tam pitches a trueish story about an Abbey Road billboard on the Sunset Strip.
Barney’s got a Ticket to Ride, Deeby’s In The Sky With Diamonds, Wumi want to Hold Your Hand and Tam can’t think of another pun and needs some Help!
With Taika Waititi’s latest film, “Hunt For the Wilderpeople” in cinemas this weekend, Deeby pitches a sequel to Waititi’s Vampire Mockumentary.
Tam wants a reverse-Twilight, Wumi questions Buffy’s Vampire Slaying activities, and Deeby raises the (wooden) stakes.
Tam and Deeby join forces to turn some of cinema’s greatest heroes to the Dark Side. Deeby rewrites history, Tam doesn’t play by his own rules and Wumi goes on the run in France.
We’re back to normal programming this week, and Deeby’s gone big with a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 thriller, Rear Window. (direct link) Here’s some facts I’ve got for you this week:
