We all know Hollywood is pretty much out of ideas. Nowadays, it seems like 90% of the movies hitting theaters is either some sort of remake or reboot, likely of something that has already been remade a couple times before. The awesome and epic story-tellers and directors (Looking at you, Nolan and Whedon) seem to finally be getting their chance to really shine, but studios are just too afraid to take a chance on those unique indie projects waiting in the wings, so it looks like we’re stuck with the likes of Michael Bay, Joel Schumacher, and Brett Ratner. Join us this week as we discuss the movies that we actually want to see remade (because it’s going to happen eventually), but only if someone with talent can do it! Wipe your classic memories away, burn up those original scripts, and whatever you do, don’t even think of Transformers as we discuss our remake picks on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
We all know that feeling. It starts with the previews and the teasers during re-runs. That new show, with those actors you like, is about to come to that network you watch. You can’t wait to tune in, and when you do, it’s one of the greatest things you’ve ever seen. You’re vested in the story, the characters, everything. Nothing can possibly get better than this, IT’S AMAZ… WHAT!?! CANCELLED!?!?! Join us this week as we reflect and mourn on some of our favorite TV shows that were sent to an early grave by the TV and network execs. Don’t get too cozy, have a plan B lined up for that time slot, and whatever you do don’t let FOX premiere your as we talk cancelled TV shows on a new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
With Halloween fast approaching it would be remiss of us here at… wait. Did you hear that? Was that a scream, or just the wind? Hmmm… maybe we should split up and investigate to cover more ground, or better yet stick together and try to survive! Join us this week as we get more into the mood for the bestest of best holidays and talk about the joining of two exciting forms of entertainment – Horror and Gaming! We cover it all, with some wackiness in between, so make sure your cardio is up, bring along some competent friends, and be careful of fatal camera angles as we talk Horror in Gaming on this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage!
