February 14, 2018

TwilightFiftyShadesPROMO.jpgFor Valentine's Day, we decide to give the listeners something sexy. And what sexier than a teen vampire and a rich playboy who's handy with the whips! We talk about TWILIGHT and FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, the fan faction that it's inspired by.

Ep. 67 - No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits

January 28, 2018

NoStringsFriendsPROMO.jpg

 

On this episode we make no firm commitment to either of 2011’s films about sleeping around as we enjoy both NO STRINGS ATTACHED and FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. We of course try to create the perfect couple out of the two on-screen pairs of Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher going up against Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, but also the great supporting characters played by Lake Bell, Greta Gerwig, and Mindy Kaling. Along the way we prove to only be suitable discussing such matters about movie characters as we relay a couple of times when a “friends with benefits” philosophy has backfired on us in real life.

So don’t worry about being trapped in a long-term relationship with us… though we would appreciate a subscribe and any follows from the links down below!

In this episode you will hear many tips to live by for the coming year, such as the relaxation lifestyle of the dead, the resurgence of back porn, and an appreciation for dance and Ralph Fiennes penis!

Ep. 63 - An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle

December 31, 2017

AnAffairSeattlePROMO.jpg

What better way to end or start your year than by having an affair with your charming hosts Peter and Mike? If that’s asking too much at the very least you should check out our latest episode on AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER and the film featuring characters inspired by this older movie, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE. We debate the merits of removing the burgeoning love between Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr versus the slow burn leading to love with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. The hope is that we pitch this cinematic classic better than Rita Wilson, though one of the hosts does admit to a bit of ugly crying. Happy New Year!

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.

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!

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

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!
