Ep. 60 - Hulk and The Incredible Hulk

November 14, 2017

Inspired by the recent theatrical release of Thor: Ragnorak, we discuss and compare the first two attempts of a Hulk standalone movie. And as always, we recast in our very own fantasy reboot fashion.

Ep. 59 - Bad Moms and A Bad Moms Christmas

November 8, 2017

BadMomsPROMO.jpgWe bring on the world's biggest fan of the Bad Moms Cinematic Universe, Jairo of the True Bromance Film Podcast, to see if one of his favorite films of 2016 is a rare comedy sequel that works. Along the way we disagree on what's considered a Christmas movie classic, the merits of sequels leading to an eventual ROCKY IV, and what exactly the age demographic should be for the hypothetical third installment in the BAD MOMS series. Like Hollywood, we get a jump on the holiday bitterness with our episode on A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS, and you should too!

Ep. 58 - Psycho 1960 and 1998

October 31, 2017

PsychoPROMO.jpg

For our Halloween episode this year we celebrate... Mother's Day? The ultimate love letter to all the moms out there is Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO from 1960 and to prove that love we are doubling down by revisiting the not-so-loved Gus Vant Sant remake of PSYCHO from 1998. This newer version being an attempt at a shot for shot remake, we discuss the style, casting choices, and strangely how dated the newer film seems compared to the 1960 version. Stick around for our new casting choices for what we can assume will never be with a third version of this film... so this is exclusive to this very podcast. You're welcome!

Ep. 56 - Wonder Woman and Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

October 21, 2017

ProfessorWonderWomanBANNER.jpg

Two weeks in a row we have Dave Hart of Pop Culture Case Study to help us figure out our fixation with WONDER WOMAN, other than the fact that it's a very likable movie. We compare that summer crowd pleaser to the crowded love story in the new release PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN. This discussion focuses on the origin of this iconic superhero character and how that has shifted over time, but more importantly if it shifts our opinion of the character as seen in the Patty Jenkins film. Also because we can't behave ourselves, we pitch a sequel with Chris Pine flying the invisible jet in a very special way.

Ep. 55 - Blade Runner 2019 and 2049

October 11, 2017

BladeRunnerPROMO.jpg

For our episode celebrating the release of BLADE RUNNER 2049, the sequel to the classic Ridley Scott sci-fi film, we debate the big questions. Not if Deckard is a replicant, but just who thought that this film was going to be a big box office success? Certainly not our guest, Dave of POP CULTURE CASE STUDY, who gives one super fan's response to this universe's continuation. Meanwhile our host Mike continues to lament not the darkness of this particular sci-fi world, but the fact that this visual feast of a movie looks much better on his iPhone than his local theater.

Ep. 54 - Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow

October 4, 2017

EdgeOfGroundhog.jpg

On this episode we reset, watch GROUNDHOG DAY, EDGE OF TOMORROW, and then do it all again for your listening pleasure. In a battle between two Ritas, Andie Macdowell fights Emily Blunt for the hearts of hosts Peter and Mike as they look at films that share the similar concept of reliving one day over and over again. Do we choose the comedic and ice sculpting skills of Bill Murray? Or maybe the rare sighting of a cowardly Tom Cruise running away from a fight is more our speed? The only way to find out is to listen to this episode. But all we ask is ONE listen. That's more than enough.

September 12, 2017

ShiningPROMO.jpg

On this episode we celebrate the release of IT by looking at another Stephen King adaptation... only this time the original was a theatrical film and the remake a television mini-series. Margo D. of the BOOK VS. MOVIE podcast joins ORIGINAL REMAKE as our official Stephen King expert as we relive the horror of early television CGI, a kinder, sweeter father haunted by personal demons at the Overlook, and a sitcom star doing his best (worst?) Jack Nicholson. Join us as we declare a winner between Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King as we look at both versions of THE SHINING!

AlienPrometheusPROMO.jpg

We are joined by the crew of the You Don't Know Ish podcast for a trip through space and time to compare Ridley Scott's much loved classic ALIEN and his not so loved return in PROMETHEUS. Along the way we discover a shared love for Michael Fassbender's prankster robot, why Charlize Theron would not be a top fantasy football draft pick, and the true nature of horror in the shape of a penis. Enjoy!

Ep. 48 - The Beguiled 1971 and 2017

July 31, 2017

BeguiledPROMO.jpg

On this episode film critic Alice Bishop joins us at the lovely Civil War era bed and breakfast as found in the 1971 and 2017 film version of THE BEGUILED. We discuss the differences in seeing Colin Farrell and action and western icon Clint Eastwood in a state of vulnerability and how one increases the horror of the situation in these similarly plotted films. The accusation of whitewashing in the new Sofia Coppola version is discussed as is the different interests between her and the original's director Don Siegel. All in all its a lovely time where we exchange mushroom recipes.

ALSO: Our friendship survives a minor disagreement on the merits of Blake Lively in shark flicks.

Ep. 46 - Drive and Baby Driver

July 12, 2017

BabyDrive.jpg

On this episode we turn to a baby podcaster himself, Dan of Get Reel Movies, a film site that caters to millenials. We ask him his take on Edgar Wright's version of the stoic getaway driver in BABY DRIVER, under the assumption that the hosts of this show are just too damn old to get it. However a love for Ryan Gosling and the film DRIVE knows no age barriers as we rave about that film and then get into the meat of modern online film criticism: which driver has the best playlist for conducting cool chase sequences?

All of this and we find out that Canadians aren't that nice in the latest episode of ORIGINAL REMAKE.

ALSO: Be sure to check out Dan's interview with DRIVE screenwriter Hossein Amini on his podcast GET REEL MOVIES

Ep. 45 - Top Gun and Days of Thunder

June 26, 2017

TopThunder.jpg

For this much Cruise on this episode of ORIGINAL REMAKE, we have to bring on a fellow Tom Cruise enthusiast and a man who understands the need for speed in Jason Michael from ATLANTIC SCREEN CONNECTION. We discuss the glory days of star power without the need for a franchise, even if TOP GUN and DAYS OF THUNDER share so many similarities they could almost be about the same character. Of course the music, mentors, and ridiculously named rivals change. So join us as we decide if we like our Cruise delivered by ground or air!

Anticipating Tom Cruise's new MUMMY movie, Peter invites Jon of Now In Technicolor to discuss and compare Boris Karloff in 1932's THE MUMMY and the loosely based remake in 1999 with Brendan Fraser.

Ep. 42 - Moon and Oblivion

May 23, 2017

MoonPROMO.jpg

Being mostly unsatisfied with the weekly reboot and clones that Hollywood presents us every week we head to space to find our own in two older films: Duncan Jones' MOON from 2009 and Joseph Kosinski's OBLIVION from 2013. Can multiple Sam Rockwells take on the star power of Tom Cruise? Which A.I. do we want to take orders from, Kevin Spacey or Melissa Leo? And is there something to be appreciated in a copy? We certainly hope so on that last question as that's the premise of this podcast.

Ep. 41 - The Ring and Rings

April 28, 2017

TheRingPROMO.jpg

On this episode we celebrate (?) the old fashioned format of video for the video release of RINGS which came out earlier this year... not that anyone noticed. But guest Alice Bishop did! And we discuss this reboot of the original remake THE RING from 2002, which carries on the tradition of this franchise always being slightly behind the times from a technology standpoint and better uses of the idea such as 2015's IT FOLLOWS. This episode may sound pretty negative but it includes one of my favorite live cover performance, so there's that.

00:0000:00

Ep. 40 - The Social Network and The Founder

April 19, 2017

SocialFounderPROMO.jpg

For the home release of The Founder, we decide to compare it with a similar idea in David Fincher's The Social Network. For this review we bring in Alicja of Reel Red Reviews who brings in a different insight than two men who seem to only want to talk about attractive men on screen.

Ep. 39 - The Italian Job 1969 and 2003

April 14, 2017

In this episode where we compare a comedic caper to it's more toned down remake, we recruit Daniel of GET REEL MOVIES to join in on the heist with us to talk about THE ITALIAN JOB! What starts out is your traditional comparison and discussion leads to allegedly picking on our Canadian friend and his love for Aaron Sorkin.

Ep. 38 - Here Comes Mr. Jordan and Down to Earth

April 13, 2017

We give this podcast thing a second chance in our return from the dead. To do so we are joined by Alyssa from the Hindsight Movie Podcast for a double feature of HERE COMES MR. JORDAN and DOWN TO EARTH. Which films reminded us of the joy of talking cinema and which one made us wish we stayed in podcast heaven? Find out on this episode along with many other things like the meaning of getting "in the pink" and the announcement of an ENTIRELY NEW PODCAST from Alyssa and your hosts Mike and Peter!

Ep. 37 - The Day the Earth Stood Still 1951 and 2008

November 23, 2016

In this episode the original hosts of the show, Mike and Peter, are back just in time for an alien invasion involving Keanue Reeves and placenta armor. But before we get to Scott Derrickson's 2008 remake, a look back at the original Cold War era film from 1951 when Gort robots could bend their knees and could predict the future heroic quests of a man with a chainsaw for a hand. Then we predict a newer version of this film which involves The Chastain. Then again that's our hope for every future remake.

Ep. 36 - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek Into Darkness

November 2, 2016
