  • 00:00 - 01:25 - INTROS, Morgan Jeske and Sean Witzke join you today with our first podcast ever recorded in the AM, and therefore we recorded it as NPR hosts. Of course, Sean only knows parodies of NPR shows, because his idea of culture is a cookbook writen by a celebrity.

  • 01:26 - 10:05 - First up, Morgan watched A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985), directed by Jack Sholder, starring Robert Englund, Mark Patton, Kim Meyers, & Robert Rusier. 

    Before you read the show notes in this section, check out Sarah Horrocks' essay on Nightmare 2 over on her site. Chuck Russell directed part 3 Dream Warriors, which was co-written by Frank Darabont & Wes Craven. Russell also did The Blob, Eraser, and produced Michael Mann's Collateral. Jack Sholder, on the other hand, directed the almost forgotten classic 1982 slasher Alone in the Dark, which has one of the scariest killer reveals in movie history. He also directed the Generation X tv movie. 

    Also mentioned in this section: Cruising, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Dream Warriors, Dream Child, Hausu, Evil Dead, and Body Double

  • 10:06 - 20:08 - Sean watched Judge Dredd (1995), directed by Danny Cannon, starring Cobra, Diane Lane, Max Von Sydow, Rob Schnieder, Armand Assante, Joan Chen, and Jurgen Pronchow. He also read the official making of pre-release book (which is currently $0.69 on amazon), which is awesome in how unaware they were that they were making one of the most massive failures of the decade, and even more than that a really bad movie. The thing ping pongs between great ideas and seeing those ideas replaced by incredibly stupid ideas as the result of ego, cost-cutting, or directorial stupidity. It also shows that awesome pre-production goes a long way, with Kev Walker and Chris Cunningham (then as Chris Halls), both graduating from drawing the comic to working on the film. 

    Also mentioned in this section: the second Dredd movie, Robocop (whose script was written by Ed Neumeier & Michael Miner, who were fired from Judge Dredd), Will Wisher and Terminator 2, The Animal, The Hot Chick, Rob Schneider being the only Asian cast member in SNL history, Demolition Man, and the MAKING COPIES guy. 

  • 20:09 - 34:54 - Finally Morgan watched Under The Skin (2014), directed by Jonathan Glazer and starring Scarlett Johansson. We've discussed this on the show before, so less show notes for this one. Sarah also wrote about this one since we've recorded, check that out too. Also discussed in this section: Xtro, Hellbound: Hellraiser 2, Species, Species 2, Sightseers, Upstream Color, the score from Alien, and the notes Scarlett took on Arnold in the beginning of Terminator

    Next Week: We will be joined by activist and author Gwyneth Paltrow to discuss her latest book. 

    Homwork: Westerns.

    Our outro music this week: "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)" by Grace Jones as heard in Frantic.
