The Movie Thread Reloaded

<< < (2/148) > >>

Omega:
Saw what I think was House of Traps at a con. That the one with the floor of spikes and some sort of killer umbrella?

Voros:
Is the Baulderstone on the podcast the same Baulderstone of the forum?

I'm digging the discussion approach to the podcasts, you know your Chinese history!

--- Quote from: Omega;1017754 ---Monolith Monsters: Mentioned this before. Another "science hero" movie and one of my favourites for the totally original idea of a "monster" that isnt even alive. A meteor crashes outside a little desert town and soon thereafter people collect some of the fragments to study or by chance. Then one of found dead, petrified and then another and it becomes apparent the threat is the rock fragments that absorb water and silica and grow into huge crystal pillars that eventually topple and shatter. Also interesting in that the monster is secondary to the interplay of the people and how they react to the impending crisis.

I saw this as a kid, keep meaning to track it down to watch again. If it is as I remember than more interesting than the description would make it sound.



Speaking of older movies, I recently watched the 1970s Invasion of the Body Snatchers again. I hadn't seen it in years and it was much better and scarier than I expected. Proof that re-makes don't always suck or just retread the same old story with different faces.

Thanks.

That is the same Baulderstone.

The discussion approach is a double edged sword but I feel more comfortable with that format. I just hit record and we don't edit the discussion (the only exception to the later is if something truly disruptive occurs and I have to stop recording---in which case I just splice together two separate recordings). I think you get more honest opinions about things that way and eventually you start getting a natural conversation.

Last week we reviewed a movie that uses the same source material so it was interesting contrasting them. Next week we are doing Reign of Assassins (normally we try to do 3 old school movies, followed by 1 newer film---newer can mean 90s or later).

That sounds like the same movie.
