What is this? A podcast on Thursday?? That’s right, loyal listeners (you three know who you are), your Thursday’s are belong to us!! Robert and Matt have moved to a new day on the MITC feed so that they can keep the podcast goodness flowing. Join them this week as their conversation shadowruns through the realms of gaming and movies, with predictable results. It may not be good, it might not make sense, and it sure doesn’t have a point, but it’s still cheaper than anything Billy Mays (may he rest in peace) ever sold – it’s time for some Useless Drivel!
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!
