New Episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

PodcastWhat’s going on, everyone, here’s the latest and greatest (title pending) for your listening pleasure!

For this week, there’s only one big release, and that’s “Evil Dead”, the remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi classic! Find out what Tank and I thought! Tank has us covered with a look at Chan-wook Park’s “Stoker”, as well!

Then, considering “Jurassic Park” is back in theatres this weekend, we take a look back at the year that was 1993. Films from that year are having their 20th Anniversary this year, so we thought we’d talk about our favorites from the year that was!

It’s a great episode and you won’t want to miss it! As always, you can download it directly, here, or search for us on iTunes or Stitcher radio by looking for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!

  1. Heart and Souls and True Romance are both great and underrated, and (obviously) on completely opposite ends of the spectrum. Good stuff.

    I hear a lot of people dogging on Eric in Evil Dead, saying “I can’t believe he read the book”, etc…

    Seriously? I’d completely read from that book. Klaatu Verada Nicto Montis Canda Candyman Candyman… or whatever. Until the demon actually showed up, there’s no way I’d believe in any of that shit. And then it’s too late.

    Now, “Who’s out there? I can here you?” all by yourself. That’s some dumb shit.

    • :D Heh! That’s good stuff. I’ll remember not to invite you over if I find anything Necronomicon-esque. :D

      I dont think I ever saw Heart and Souls… at that point I was just shocked trying to compute what Tank would be leaving off because there were only a couple of slots left. 8O

      Thanks for listening, Spike!

    • I said the same thing to my brother…if we were to ever find some big evil looking book with warnings not to read from it out loud or all hell would break loose then he had better get prepared for hell because I am going to always be the guy who reads it. I wouldn’t be able to help myself.

  2. Tank really brought back memories of going to see Schinder’s List. Never seen so much emotion from an audience leaving a theater, myself included. I first saw it with my family, and I remember having to help my Mom leave the theater. Saw it again with my girlfriend and having to do the same thing.

    My unsolicited list of the movies of 1993 that I’ve seen, leaving out Jurassic Park and Schinder’s List:

    1. The Fugitive
    2. Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas
    3. Philadelphia
    4. In The Line of Fire
    5. Dave
    6. Groundhog Day
    7. The Sandlot
    8. A Perfect World
    9. The Piano
    10. The Firm
    11. Ms. Doubtfire
    12. The Vanishing
    13. What’s Love Got to Do With It
    14. Malice
    15. Hot Shots! Part Deux
    16. Much Ado About Nothing
    17. True Romance
    18. Wayne’s World 2
    19. Robin Hood: Men In Tights
    20. Last Action Hero
    21. Tombstone
    22. The Pelican Brief
    23. Addams Family Values
    24. Rookie of the Year

    28. Body of Evidence
    29. Sliver
    30. The Age of Innocence

    • WOW 8O That’s a Tanski like list right there! You could do a top five and have 20 honorable mentions, just like he did! LOL

      Was a pretty good year for movies, I think. There’s a lot of them on that list that are decent to good, and of course some scattered great ones. Still hard to believe Spielberg released two all time greats in the same year 8O

      If there’s a ranking involved there, I’m glad to see Nightmare before Christmas rank so high. Thats a great flick in my opinion. ;)

      • Yeah, those would be one and two in some order if I were to include them.

        If I did a (title pending) style rating on these I’d probably Anvil 1-3, Stamp 4-12, Meh 13-23, and Flush 24-26, and Double Flush 27-30.

      • Only a stamp for Groundhog Day, huh? I’m with you, but I have to recognize that pop culture Anvils that puppy. :D Good to hear youre a big fan of “Nightmare”, I love that flick. One of Burton’s finest moments, whether he directed it or not. LOL

      • Yeah, it’s a good, solid comedy. My problem is that repetative nature of the premise makes it drag in the middle. Then again, I’m probably harder on comedies in general than most people.

        Actually, I just noticed that Ivan Reitman had a heck of a year too, with Groundhog Day and Dave.

  3. Terrance Malick directing Bond? Oh the humanity, the horror. That scares me way more than Evil Dead. Don’t even say it in jest. I’d have to skip a 007 entirely.

    • :D LOL Cmonnnn… that would be awesome, wouldnt it? Bond, chasing a bad guy… suddenly we cut to a five minute montage of snails and bees and shit, and then when we come back, Bond is reading a book in a library?

      Just think of the possibilities! :D

  4. Fun pcast on revisiting ’93 top flicks.
    Fugitive and Groundhog Day are definitely near the top.
    The trivia on A Bronx Tale, other than DiNero’s direction is that Chazz Palmenteri adapted the script from his own one man stage show, and his own real first name is Calogero which is used by the main character (both the 9 year old and 17 year old versions).

    Quotes:

    So he showed up not dead yet. Let that be a lesson to you, boys and girls. Don’t ever argue with the big dog, because the big dog is always right.
    -Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard (Jones), The Fugitive

    Phil Connors: Excuse me, where is everybody going?
    Fan on Street: To Gobbler’s Knob. It’s Groundhog Day.
    Phil Connors: It’s still just once a year, isn’t it?
    -Connors(Murray), Groundhog Day

    • Oh yeah? Chazz Palmenteri wrote that? I did not know that… :D Thanks for teaching me up! I just looked at his IMDb for writing though, looks as if he didnt connect with much else :(

      That is a really good flick though, I watched it quite a bit when it first came out, but its been years since I’ve revisited now.

  5. It’s not the exact subject but no one mentioned one of the key films from that year either in the podcast or the comments section. Has everybody forgotten “Dazed and Confused” or has it finally been written off by all the film fans who loved it the last twenty years? I’m just saying.
