Gather round the campfire to hear us tell the tale of the gunfight at the box office corral where Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell dueled to settle which of them could create the better Wyatt Earp film. Though Costner started with his hand on the script, it was the faster, wilier Russell who prevailed in the end, buying up all the cowboy gear in Hollywood and raking in the dough while Costner’s “Wyatt Earp” lay dead in the street.
Seriously, that’s exactly how it happened. The production of Tombstone is a tale for the ages and we’re here to tell it. Join us on the podcast. It’s a good one!
Thanks again to Brent for this fantastic commission, without which I never would have gotten around to watching this classic western.
This week marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Apollo 13. It was a movie A.Ron and I loved back then and we were pleasantly surprised to see how well it held up. Join us for a discussion of the film, the real Apollo missions, the future of space exploration, and beyond.
Multiple-commissioner Josh from Saxapahaw, NC is back with another goodie, James Cameron’s take on the Aliens franchise. One of the all time great sci-fi action movies, it supplies nearly non stop action with a sturdy heroine to build around, lots of colorful characters to die, implacable, terrifying antagonists, and impressive effect and design work. Plus, we eulogize the late, great, Bill “Tons of Peace” Paxton. Thanks again, Josh, this was a lot of fun!
