TONIGHT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT 3 OUTER SPACE HORROR MOVIES, THE BLOB 1958, BLOB 1988, AND COLOR OUT OF SPACE, SO STAY TUNED BUT FIRST

Since two of our co-hosts are so fascinated with the Blob 1958’s sequel, let's get that out of the way before we start the show...with a Beware! the Blob (1972) showcase.

TONIGHT’S MOVIES ARE...

THE BLOB 1958: A drive-in favorite, this sci-fi classic follows teenagers Steve (Steven McQueen IN HIS FIRST LEAD ROLE) and his best girl, Jane (Aneta Corseaut), as they try to protect their hometown from a gelatinous alien life form that engulfs everything it touches. The first to discover the substance and live to tell about it, Steve and Jane witness the blob destroying an elderly man and grow to a terrifying size. But no one else has seen the goo, and policeman Dave (Earl Rowe) refuses to believe the kids without proof.

THE BLOB 1988: In a tiny California town, high school students Brian (Kevin Dillon), Meg (Shawnee Smith) and Paul (Donovan Leitch) discover a strange, gelatinous substance that melts the flesh of any living creatures in its path. The deadly substance gets into the town's sewer system, where it begins growing uncontrollably, occasionally emerging to feast on unsuspecting townspeople. A military clean-up crew is sent to eliminate the menace, but it may end up doing more harm than good.

COLOR OUT OF SPACE:  After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farm, Nathan Gardner and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism that infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a technicolor nightmare.

Speaker 1:

And now on with the show, since our hosts are fascinated with the blobs 1958 cul , which actually came out in 72, it's called beware the blob. Um, we're going to start the show with that. Enjoy folks.

Speaker 2:

Are you talking about this ? Like any movie, any , like there's a responsibility on that on the part of the pur on the participant and the viewer, you know, to sit down, shut up, turn your mind off, let them show you something. You can pick them apart later, but picking the movie apart during makes you like super annoying, crack open a cold box of wine, pour something cold on ice because [inaudible] , especially if you're ,

Speaker 1:

We're saying this is the mindset that the audience should adopt when they see a movie, is that you're saying like a positive attitude going into watching a movie.

Speaker 2:

So what you're saying, right? Uh , yeah ,

Speaker 1:

I'm talking about space movies, but for some reason, Adam and Dave were like fascinated by this, but where the blob 1972 movie, which is like, not even, it's not even on our list of movies to binge watch tonight. Like we're not even discussing this movie. It's a sequel to one of the movies we're talking about, but it's not even on our radar. Well, it is now because Dave and Adam have been texting about it, like all day. And , uh , and they stopped what they were doing. Apparently like they hit, like we were supposed to watch the blob 1958 and the blob 88 and then Colorado space, which is on shutter right now. It's a Nick cage, horror movie , um , a farmer and his family get attacked by literally a color out of space. And the blob is obviously what, it sounds like a gelatinous creature from outer space that attacks and devours people. And in the 88 version, it looks like acid, right? Like acid is breaking them down. Like he has some kind of acid, but a , I love, but then you guys went off on this. Like, it was almost like you guys had a podcast before you even had the podcast tonight. It was like, you were, but where are the blob? And that's the title. But then it was like, well, I'm not going to keep like, discussing the discussion. Like anytime, anytime a dangerous you want to chime in, or Adam, you guys want to talk about this movie that you guys decided to watch.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I didn't watch it. So I don't know. I have no idea about, but where the love , I mean, this was literally just going the extra mile of like, you know, like, well , fuck it. We've watched two versions of the blog. Why not conclude the trilogy? So to say , um, I mean, I think Adam did too, but I, I cheated, I watched it a 1.5 speed. Cause it's not good. I didn't miss anything. Cool. Yeah. Cause it is available on YouTube for free.

Speaker 1:

So I don't do that. I don't increase the movie stream speed, but I will like fast forward scenes that I don't care about. You know ,

Speaker 3:

I , I don't, I rarely do it. I only want to do it on like conversational videos on YouTube, but I rarely do it for narrative.

Speaker 4:

Wow. Me either. And I sometimes I just have to do it cause I'm like, this is plotting along and the cuts of older films that aren't that up to snuff, that aren't amazing filmmakers with experience. It can really suck you in. It's just like they're learning on this film. So you have to fast forward these certain parts of , uh , what I'm calling BTBY , but where the bop blob it's actually the blob to and BTB is a , and I didn't hate it as much as Dave did. I did watch a lot of it in two X, two X now,

Speaker 3:

I don't know . I don't know how we would say who liked it more because I talked to him at least

Speaker 4:

There's parts of that. I watched into X and there's parts that I slowed down to watch. It was almost like the filmmakers shout out a sequence and some parts were good and some parts weren't, there's a part in there with a Nicky lights in there where he goes to get a hair. Have you seen that part? He's totally in there. Like I wish I could bring, you would laugh if you saw it. So

Speaker 1:

Saying there's a dude that looks like one of our cohosts that looks like,

Speaker 3:

Oh, he does. Oh yeah . Just in a screenshot would have loved to have seen that guy in the gorilla suit.

Speaker 4:

No, no, but ,

Speaker 1:

Well, I mean, you're saying a guy looks like Nikki lates , and then you just mentioned a gorilla suit. Now I kind of want to watch it at first. I was like, why bother talk about this? Because you guys clearly don't like it, you're saying fast forward the thing, but then you mentioned a guy in a gorilla suit and somebody that looks like one of us, those are two reasons to watch it.

Speaker 3:

[inaudible] wasn't bad. I mean, it's not great, but I mean, it was, you know, it was, I believe some of it , um , I will say it's not much worth talking about, but I will say if you watch it through the lens of it's making a commentary on stupid movies or people making stupid decisions in movies, this is great because like somebody literally is driving the road. The big blob is like literally taking up the entire road. They're like, what's that? But don't break and just run into it. Like what the fuck? You see a big object break what's that?

Speaker 1:

Yeah . Psychology says that most people would turn into, it would turn into the object that they're afraid of. Like in a moment of panic, I think.

Speaker 3:

And there's another scene where the guy is literally at the hairdressers , getting his hair washed. The blob, comes up to the sink and the guy dunks his head, not paying attention to , Oh, my sink is full of a blog now. Like it's just shit like that. That kills me.

Speaker 1:

Wow. Well, it didn't kill you. It killed the dude at the Paris one ,

Speaker 4:

By the way, getting his haircut .

Speaker 1:

Right . I think we're gonna , I think we're going to move along to our TV and movie news and really get this thing kicked off. Um, cause I was gonna talk about the nature of blobs. So I was like, I gotta wait. We're not even discussing the movies yet. Um, so let's see what everybody heard in the world of uh, movies and TV. I got three. So

Speaker 3:

I got one . I've got like, she rolled into one, so yeah .

Speaker 1:

Alright so let's do Adam, how many tidbits you got?

Speaker 4:

I just got like the fact that the, the industry seems to be turning against tenant. Christopher Nolan's tenant,

Speaker 1:

Dude. I would say the industry is like eating itself alive right now from the inside out. Like it like our industry. It doesn't know what to do right now. It's like, even celebrities don't know what to do. They're all joining cameo to make 32nd videos of telling you happy birthday to get some change in their bank accounts. Like the whole industry is like, it was upside down now it's like cannibalizing itself, like just eating itself away, you know? Um,

Speaker 4:

Well they did do some like, like big agreement between sag and AFTRA. That makes it a really restrictive , um, for safety. I mean, I mean, it's good

Speaker 1:

For no other reason than to exist. I saw that movie theater chains and had asked filmmakers to like ask our government to save movie theaters. Did you guys see that story? Yeah . So yeah. And I don't remember when video stores died. Was it like an outcry to save video stores?

Speaker 3:

Not at all. No. I make everyone.

Speaker 4:

And Ron, that was providing energy. You remember when they got asked to be rescued?

Speaker 1:

I don't want to talk about an Ron. This is not the podcast to discuss the Enron.

Speaker 3:

I think it's just going to be adapter die . I mean, I was in my wife's hometown and we drove by their local movie theater and they have a popup driving and it's not made to be a drive in . So I think it's just going to be adapter die for awhile. Theaters are going to have to get savvy. Um, yeah .

Speaker 1:

Do you see them going away completely. And I see like I don't even see movies being made. Like I know there's like Netflix and there's like shutter, Hulu, all these on demanders. But I think like the algorithms are going to make programs that are going to engineer stories for you and like there's going to be, no, there's not going to be, there's not going to be movies. There's just not,

Speaker 3:

There's going to be movies. But I think a few changes, I think most everything middle level, like think of like the nineties in the courtroom drama or the sexy thriller, that shit is only going to be on Netflix. They only thing movie theaters are going to be for if they exist is going to be Marvel movies or big spectacle. I just think that anything below a $200 million movie is just not going to play in theaters.

Speaker 1:

This is like a whole debate. Like I think we could , we could talk about the state of the, of movies

Speaker 3:

It's going to lead to innovation guys. I mean, there's just gorilla movies that go on tour and then pop up tour buses and then the marketing strategy changes. And so that's reverting to old shit. That's the road show. That's not a new model.

Speaker 1:

That's crazy. They're like abandoning technology and going back to how they sold movies in the seventies and eighties, that's kind of crazy.

Speaker 3:

It is. But I , I mean, I can see, I mean, so my newsfeed is that my news story is actually based exactly what we're talking about. Senna world cinemas will be closing all their regional theaters in the U S and Europe. And that was my news. And because of exactly the long way with what we're saying, like Jay , because James Bond got delayed again. Cause they're worried about losing money. Now this theater chains like, well, we got nothing in the can. We're done we're toast. Right? Wow. I mean, that's huge. Like everything, everything you guys are saying is happening.

Speaker 1:

Isn't that crazy that they were hindering on one movie, right? One movie to keep them alive for like the next 18 months or something.

Speaker 3:

Tenant was number one this weekend , you know how much it made 2.3 million. Yeah. That's [inaudible] fast and furious a long time ago. You know, it's crazy. I mean, I think they also jumped the gun. I mean, I get it. They pulled their trigger finger. Um, I mean, the fact of the matter is, is the public has spoken. They open up movie theaters in most of the country and people aren't showing up. Yeah . The audience isn't ready, even though your theater is then

Speaker 1:

Interesting thing is if you want to go see tenants ,

Speaker 3:

You can see it all alone sitting in a movie theater. I've literally read of people doing that too. And like ,

Speaker 1:

You're right though, the audience doesn't want to go or they're too frightened to go or are they just can't be bothered like stress and other concerns or things that are going on. Like , um, which is funny though, because people actually ran to the theaters during the great depression,

Speaker 3:

But there was no virus.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. Different issues. You're right. But uh , I'm surprised we were gonna cover this movie called possessor on our show made by David and Cronenberg's kid. It's like the next generation Cronenberg. He's got a weird possession, demonic movie coming out. And I thought they were going to release it video on demand the same day as theaters. But I guess not Dave texted me earlier and I was like, Oh yeah, you're right. We can't. Well, I said, Oh , well basically saying like it's a missed opportunity for that movie because they should have just released it video on demand to everybody at the same time they did theaters, you know, like it's weird that they're delaying the video on demand release still November.

Speaker 3:

So yeah. I'm surprised. I mean, it's from a company that has a big deal with them , Hulu. So I won't be surprised if it's on Hulu in a month or two.

Speaker 1:

Well, they said November 6th or whatever, I looked it up after you said like, Oh, it's not available. And they push it. They, I thought I had read that they were gonna release it theater and video on him . Like, that's the way to go. I think if you have a movie and it's big enough to matter, like release it both ways at the same time, like that's what I'm , that's my opinion. It's like theaters and video on demand,

Speaker 3:

Especially nowadays it seems like that's the way you do have to go. I think they are going to do that because AMC struck a deal with universal where they're going to be able to put like a , you can rent their movie universal movies three weeks after it was in theaters, which is like the smallest gap that's ever been. It's always been like 90 days. Right. Right. Being the smallest gap was like a same time Soderbergh did that years ago. I think with Baba very improved , but for a major release, like a fast and furious or something. Okay. So you're right. That was the first movie that did that bubble. In fact, I was in the theater to see that opening weekend. Um , but Oh wow. You're fighting it back then. But actually my new stories kind of sort of dovetails as well because John brought up the craft last weekend, a SQL or whatever we want to call that

Speaker 1:

That's a direct sequel, which is surprising, but I'm thankful for that.

Speaker 3:

And so two other movies, a drop or at least a previews drop this week for two movies. I had no idea where in production. Um, or at two and a remake of the witches, the witches was supposed to go to theater. And there's another casualty of Nokia . Yeah. It's Robert Zemeckis. Do you think Robert's gonna make video movie and actually Bora would've probably made a lot of money too . Cause that was such a hit the other one. Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. Adam, it's rural doll. It's a remake of the other one. That's based on his book.

Speaker 3:

Yeah. Well it was the witches . I mean the first one, the one from the nineties is amazing. Has Jim Henson effects. And um, it was a question with you . I liked that one a lot and I liked that book a lot. I read that book when I was in like fourth grade. But my question is, is a movie a remake if the movie exists because of a book that was written or is it just remaking from the book? Are we saying

Speaker 1:

It depends on what you're adapting. Like they could literally be remaking the movie which happens to be based on a book or they could just be adapting the book again. Who knows?

Speaker 3:

Um, I would say, I don't know. It's a hard, it's a cause even the movie, the trailer even said it's like a new take and they're , I mean, you know, they changed the , uh, the race of some of the characters and which isn't a big deal, but they clearly updated it to a modern world and a modern flavor. Um, so it's a reallocation . I dunno . That's a good question.

Speaker 1:

Hmm . Um , the updates I was bringing was they got some new stuff coming out as far as there's going to be a Nightbreed TV show. Oh, I heard about that. Oh yeah. They gave it to a pretty good guy too. And I me , um, yeah. Forgot to treat him the new Godzilla. Yes, yes, yes. Michael Dougherty . Uh , yeah, just for trick or treat alone. Oh, that's what it is. Yeah . The team from trick or treat or making the night breed TV show. Oh , the cramp. His movie. Oh yeah. So Coney TV is going to , um, did you guys hear about this Conan? The barbarian is going to Netflix. I heard, yeah. It is going to be Arnold. I don't know. I'm probably not going to be a new guy. I mean, I mean, Arnold could probably be like, the cameo is like another, a rival King or something. That'd be cool. Arnold, will it be Conan's dad? Yeah. There you go. They're probably going to model it after Cobra, Kai. So it'll just be like the Conan version of Cobra, Kai. Let's see. Oh, and then , um, did you guys, apparently Matthew McConaughey has written a book during this furlough situation or whatever. Um, he compiled a memoir called green lights . I'll put it in the podcast notes. We'll have a little Amazon link. They can go preorder his memoirs or whatever. Um , how did he write a memoir and not titled it all right or right , or right. I don't know . But he did some, he did some massive digital marketing PR like he has a good website. He's going on a virtual book tour with a bunch of celebrities. He's got merchandise already. He has hats and tee shirts. And man , he's got to add March already . I was talking to Adam about merchandising for our podcast . I'm like this dude, McConaughey already has his own fucking hats for his book. He just pulled it out. Um , we're going to go to some messages. And then after that, we'll be back with tonight's movies. This fall, you get back into the swing of things.

Speaker 2:

We're back. All right . Tonight's movies.

Speaker 1:

It's actually a triple feature of horror flicks. We got the blob 58. This is a drive in favorite scifi classic. It follows a teenage Steve McQueen actually in his first lead role with the name Steve Nogales and then his best girl, best girl used to be like, I don't know. It's a weird term. It's like from the fifties and sixties where like you had more than one girlfriend, but this was the best. This is like your main squeeze, I guess. I don't know. Um, so yeah, he's, he's, he's a man around town, a Playboy , uh , what ? No , he's like the main jock or something hangs out with this girl, Jane. Um, they're gonna have to protect their town from a gelatinous alien that engulfs everything. It touches the first one to discover it as a farmer and they try to help them out. Then it eats the doctor that tries to help with the farmer and then it gets bigger and bigger. The more people it eats. And then what's funny about this town is like, everybody knows everybody. And then like, so the firemen helps. The sheriff helps and the kids help and they all take on the blob . The next one we were talking about is a blob 88. What you think is a straight roommate , but they kind of turn things around. Kevin Dillon actually shows up playing a different character and the character that would have been like the Steve McQueen and this one, they take him out early to suggest like, Oh good . We're not going down that road of, you know, mr. Popular high school jock , we're going in a different direction. But then the blob and this one is pretty aggressive and melts people with like it devours them on the inside of the OUAB . It's like acid or something. That's how it eats people. And it gets way out of control. And then there's like some government conspiracy involved in the remake and then the whole town gets together again and tries to get rid of this thing. Shawnee Smith is in the movie, which makes it incredible. I didn't know she was in it, but that's really cool. Now. I didn't know that until, until I watched it. Then I'm the last one we were talking about tonight is color out of space, a meteorite crashes into the, a family farm, Nathan gardener and his family in a battling like this weird psychedelic mutation. And it lives in their well and talks to their kid. And then a bunch of crazy shit happens in that one too . They're calling it a technical or nightmare. So we'll be talking about that one. We'll go immediately to our first impressions, but we're going to do a little bit differently. I've been trying to figure out how to arrange episodes, where we have these triple features or double features. It's , it's a little weird, like first talk about this movie, then that movie, then that movie, I was like, wait a minute, you should probably just pick one of the three to give your first presence and favorite bits. If one is more, if you're inclined to like one over the other ones , you know what I'm saying? Like, like if your favorite is 58, tell me something about 58, but if you're an 88, man, tell me about 88. And if you actually like color over the blobs, just tell us about the colors. Cause I don't know if the audience is going to have time to watch all three, right? I'd like to watch one of the movies we're talking about. Let's the goal. Like it's like word of mouth. Like we like these movies. You should watch them. That's the whole point of this show as far as I can tell. Right. So at least now just talking about some of our favorite movies, check them out. Um, so yeah, pick one of the movies and then tell me first impressions. Uh, let's do this random Dave.

Speaker 3:

Okay. So just one of them. Um , if you're going to ask which one is my favorite of the three? Uh , blob 88 , um,

Speaker 1:

Say favorites. I said pick one of the movies for your first impressions.

Speaker 3:

Oh, pick one up . Okay. Fine. We'll find Colorado space. Um, I watched it earlier this year for the first time and I thought this is one of my favorite movies of the year still is.

Speaker 1:

So if we had to quote you one of the best movies of the year, dangerous save colored box. Yeah . Uh, go ahead, Nick.

Speaker 3:

Uh , the blob 88, the condom scene makes me smile.

Speaker 1:

Dang. What a great first impression.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, it really does . It's amazing

Speaker 1:

Rib for her pleasure. The best part was the newspaper going down and the dad going ribbed. Yeah. That's what I just said. Read for pleasure. Yeah .

Speaker 3:

It's just like , it's such a great little comedy bit where you're like, I don't expect this in this movie, right ? Yeah . So good.

Speaker 1:

What we're talking about folks is there's a scene in the movie where two teenagers had to buy condoms and one of them gets caught by the local preacher and then come to find out that the pharmacist is actually he's picking up the girl and it's the dad. Right. So then he gets really nervous. Um, the dad, cause he saw that he had seen them buy the condoms anyway. And it's his daughter. They were picking up for the, take her out on the town or whatever. Um , it's kinda better watch it . It's a good bit. Yeah, it's a really good bit. Yeah. Um, Adam, your first impressions of one of these three movies, Bob 58, Steve McQueen is like the oldest looking teenager I've ever seen. I look up his age. He was only 27. He's a really shitty looking 27, but you know, the poor bastard, the poor bastard got lung cancer. By the time he was 50 and died in Mexico. So , uh, he was looking shitty cause he probably already having health problems at 27, you know, hard living man, hard life. Um, my, okay. My first impression would be that the blob theme is great and man title sequences used to be really cool. And uh, I looked at , I had to look up the theme song because it's by Burt Bacharach and Mack , David Mack , David did that , um , biggie boppity booze song. And he's been on other soundtracks. He worked on other movies in like the fifties , sixties, whatever. And um, this song actually went to number like 25 on the charts when it , when they made it and they made a fake band when they got together to record this, they got some other like rock artists or blues people or whatever at the time they called their fake band, the five blobs when they recorded it. So it's kind of funny. Um, that's my first impression was that I liked the theme song. Where are we now? Oh, we can move on to our audience segment. We get questions from out there. This is where we get answered. We answer questions that the, our fan summit or whatever our listeners and uh, if the binge waters podcast crew were Ninja turtles, which turtles would they be? I think Dave answered the questions the best. Cause I actually nailed it. Yeah. So Dave, when we brought, when I brought this up on Facebook messenger, what , what was your response? How did you lay out the crew? If we were Ninja turtle?

Speaker 3:

Well, I placed Nick as Leonardo. Um, I placed you John as Rafael. Uh, I placed , uh , Adam as Michael, Angela and myself as Donna Tello ,

Speaker 1:

All I can say is fairly accurate. I think we match the personalities. And if you listen to the episodes, you probably think so too. Like Dave brings the facts, which I guess would be the technical thing that Donna Tella would do. Nick corrals us. And like , it's kind of like when we need a morality boost, like leadership, Nick will pop up. Um, I guess I'm a bit rough around the edges. And I have like a temper, I don't know, like I'm like an angry millennial, right? Like that's my brand. Right. Like I get frustrated. And so I probably bring ROVs attitude. Right. So especially if I disagree about movies, I think I'm the , like the, the one who like harps the most. Um, I really gave it to you guys for , uh , from beyond. So

Speaker 3:

I think, you know, we'll get into it later, but I don't think you like HP Lovecraft adaptations. Honestly. That's what it is. Oh shit. Yeah. Revelation every day John was Michael Angela . Oh. So cause like , you know , like pizza and end , he was happy, go lucky, but he's getting darker over the years. And I think Ralph probably matches him now. Me and me and John have switched roles. I think The album Ninja turtles, anybody could be like any one of them on any day I can make the argument. [inaudible]

Speaker 1:

Horoscope Dave, where anybody can apply their horoscope to them on any given day. It's like, you could be all the turtles. So that you're saying,

Speaker 3:

Well, it's like a, it's like a pizza. It's like a pizza wheel. Like you can just flip it to see what kind of Ninja turtle you slice . I was thinking about RAF , just being like the most skilled fighter of them all really. He's got to use like the shortest possible weapon. Hmm . You know , that also means he likes to get into his people's face though, too.

Speaker 1:

It's dirty. He's got to get in close and really, you know, yeah. It's not efficient fighting. It's dirty. It's dirty fighting.

Speaker 4:

Yeah. Inside fighting. Yeah. You're inside their range. But if they have a long weapon, they wouldn't know how to deal with you.

Speaker 1:

I don't know . Moving on. Uh, let's see. Favorite bits from any of these three movies, Nick,

Speaker 4:

A blob 1988, the movie theater scene. I think they took what the original hat and made it better. Fair enough. It was beautiful. And the sewer part, that was pretty cool too.

Speaker 1:

Oh, the sewer sequence is terrifying. That was pretty good. Um , yeah. When you think the kid's not going to get away that he's going to get melted and it starts to melt his jacket or whatever. That's pretty freaky here. Right? The little brother. Yeah. Um, was pretty intense. Yeah . Um, since you said, yeah. Why don't you go ahead next item and tell us what is your favorite?

Speaker 4:

Oh my gosh. I'm getting everything confused with a beware of the blob. Cause I watched it. Wow. That was bound to happen. I know I shouldn't have done it. Um, I guess , uh, I really like the first film when the man is being consumed, had some of the best looking effects . I think they did actually better than the 88 version with the old man's arm turning into a gelatinous arm and it consuming him in a , in a more , uh, it was more staged way. Like there's this happens and then that happens and then you're seeing it consuming and you've seen, so I really like the hot, the doc , the doctor scene. I thought it was really , uh , eyeopening . And the fact that the people in the movie, you don't really know what's going on. As much as the ADA movie was like kind of confusing. They couldn't, they knew it was bad. They knew it was a monster. They knew they sounded preposterous when they tried to explain it. And I also thought it was really weird. I don't think either correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think either movie, any character referred to it as the blob or a blob or blob at all, it was the blog that you guys hear that at all. I don't think so. Yeah. Nobody said blob. Hmm . But, but after being a viewer of the movie, you'd think, well, duh, it's a blob . Good thing. Defining it for you. So yeah. Anyway, I like that transition at the old guy and Oh , and his acting when he was like, like screaming and pain of the thing, consuming him, like, cause it is eating them , like you said, talking about acid. Oh. And I do have a favorite scene. I just want to drop it in 88. The first guy that gets eaten, like the , the , the jock

Speaker 1:

He's like the Steve McQueen character in the second.

Speaker 4:

Yeah. Yeah. When he's getting sucked back and it's like,

Speaker 3:

Like pulling the flesh off of his skull and pulling him backwards, ah , Adam just kind of took mine. But uh, so I mean, we don't have to discuss, I mean, cause I agree with you that like that scene right there, that is the epitome of a poster shot because I didn't ever , I never saw the cover of this as a kid and my brother rented it and watched it on VHS, that image stuck in my head for so long. And when I finally saw it somewhere on the video store, it was like, that was the front cover like that, that perfectly epitomizes the whole movie, that scene. It's just , um, what about the date though? The dates a good second then the car date, the trunk and, well the drain scene. I mean I can name, I mean I got it . Fuck . I love the 88 one. I love it. It's so amazing. It really is. I mean, and you know, it was written by Frank Darabont. I mean that guy went on to do fucking Shawshank redemption, walking dead.

Speaker 1:

Um, my favorite bits, I got two of them . I'll just tell you. Um, well I like Shawnee Smith with the machine gun towards the end of the 88, right. Where she's finally had enough and she's like, I'm going to take care of this. And she picks up the machine gun and uh , is trying to deal with it, you know, with like the ice truck or whatever.

Speaker 3:

Um , that's a good character.

Speaker 1:

She's from , uh , if anybody remembers summer school, an iron Eagle . So, and now the blog . So here's three, you know, if you're into Shawnee Smith, a lot of people would probably seen her in the saw movies. Right. So they want to go back and look at her early catalog, then they can watch summer school, iron Eagle or the blob 88. Now , um, the other scene I like is the original diner scene in the 58 version where it's kind of like the most desperate moment in the movie. And Steve McQueen the girlfriend. And I don't know if that's her little brother and her parents are the ones who own the diner or whatever, but the two people, the diner and the little kid are there with Steven and the girlfriend and like the blobs covered the entire diner and they hadn't figured out how to deal with it at that point. And they don't know they're not going to get out. So they're like going further and further into the building. And then , then they're in their basement. It's kind of like a , like when they get trapped in night of the living dead and they're in the basement and they got nowhere to go. Right. And the , the infection is there. So like the blob is there, like it's seeping in through the cracks in the walls and the little windows and the drain gutters. And it's going to get them just like at night of living dead, like the mom's infected in the basement, but you don't know that, but then like you start to see it happen. There's zombies above and it's , I'll be right there, you know? So , um, it's like that, I guess, like what is that like just being trapped, right. Claustrophobia or something. I don't know. That's a great defense . Absolutely. Yeah. Um, all right . Uh, now we get to play our favorite game, which maybe makes us sound too much like critics, critical critics. I don't know, binge now binge later and binge never the blob, 58, 88 or color out of space. Um, who wants to kick it off? Alright .

Speaker 3:

I would say binge never. And I really love this director and I wanted to like, it more was color space. I love Richard Stanley because he's so unique. I would say blob I'm 51 and then I would go blob now , uh, the ADA version.

Speaker 1:

Hmm , Dave 51 58, the technical or whatever. Yeah,

Speaker 3:

The black and white looking of the three. I'd say probably , um , um, I'll say , uh, I agree with Nick , uh , blob 88 binge now, binge forever. I fucking love that movie. Um, binge, binge later , um , Colorado space. We didn't talk about it that much. I fucking love this movie, but that's not for everybody that has never actually blob 58. Um, I appreciate it, but I'm not going to go back and watch that one anytime soon, but wow. Harsh,

Speaker 1:

AA. What do you got for us?

Speaker 4:

Okay. So I don't really have avenge, never here. I have Colorado space as a bench later. Um, but Benji now definitely 58 and 88 in that order, because I think if you watch 88 first and then you try to go back and then watch 58, like all the revelations are ruined. If you see ADA cause 88 tries to cram a whole lot more fun into the film and uh , you can't see what they're playing off of. You can't see origin. It's like, it's like reading the latest issue of Spiderman and then going back and start to look and appreciate the original Steve Ditco Spiderman. You're not going to do it. Like it's , it's unfair to Steve Ditco. He made the thing and then it had to get boring until they add all these extra layers. So I say blog 58, keep an open mind. It's the fifties. I mean, they didn't even know how to make you feel horror with like, you know, the music, but uh, yeah.

Speaker 3:

Hmm , cool. I trail off poorly.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I'm lost, but that's all right. I'll support you with mine. Cause I I'm saying binge now blob 58 , uh , bins later and it took me like a couple of decades at least to watch the blob 88. So it can wait. It's good. But it can wait and then binge never. Yeah. I'm going to let color out his face . Just drop off and disappear into a black hole. Um, yeah. I also wanted to support the filmmaker. He'd been at a film for a little while and he just had a con this was his comeback movie right after surviving the fricking drama from the Island of dr . Moreau. Um , Dave was, Dave was saying that there's a great documentary to find about that whole experience. It literally is of my favorite doctors .

Speaker 3:

Watch it. Okay. So Nick, yeah. Nick was on when I was , I was bringing it up. It is , it is. I'm telling you guys like , if you want to binge, you know, if we added this to the list, I'd say binge now lack . Cause it is a fucking, Oh my gosh . Oh, I would totally agree with Dave binge. The what's it called again? Lost a lost soul. The making of , yeah . Yeah. It's on, it's on prime. I know that much. Well worth the hour and a half. Yeah. John, check it out. I'm serious. You , you , it's the experience of a filmmaker where you're like, he's going to do so good. And you just watch him just, Oh shit. The studio system, you know , this has got like a really long title. If somebody is looking for it on Amazon lost soul colon, the doom journey of Richard Stanley's Island of dr . Moreau. Wow.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. That doesn't even fit on the billboard, right?

Speaker 3:

No, but it's worth the hour 40 telling you.

Speaker 1:

So since we're talking about a bunch of other movies, let's move right into what else are the binge Watchers watching? What else are you watching this week? Uh , Nick, what else are you watching?

Speaker 3:

I just watched this eighties movie called Lisa. Do you guys ever heard of this one about this girl who this real , this 14 year old girl who meets this guy gets his license plate and then starts playing them . But he's actually a serial killer, like , or starts talking to him. Like she thinks she's gonna like end up with him, but she doesn't realize he's a serial killer and then finds out where she is. It's it's kind of a cool eighties movie. I liked that 1990s movie. It was a, you know, it's PG 13 thriller, but, but it actually, it's pretty intense for a PG 13 movie. I liked it. I've never even heard of it. It starts to grow one of the, you remember that? Uh , girlfriend, my two dads and step-by-step yeah . Yeah, that was pretty good. All right , cool. Yeah .

Speaker 1:

Oh man. Uh, Dave, what are you watching?

Speaker 3:

Oh God. I'm , I'm feeling half hearted . Cause I didn't watch anything great out of what we watched for the show this week. But um, I'd say my motherless Brooklyn. It was the Edward Nord movie that came out last year. I finally caught up to it. Um, great. If you want to see a film in war with the main character who has, Tourette's like, if that doesn't sell you, I don't know what else does, but it's got a great cast. It's 1950s, New York, a really, really kind of fun modern horror movie from Edward Norton.

Speaker 1:

I think that's how you sell it. Like if you're, if you're missing ed Norton, cause he hasn't been in anything lately, go watch him in this movie

Speaker 3:

And do a really great job playing as somebody with Tourettes ,

Speaker 1:

Adam what'd you watch

Speaker 4:

The blob to be aware of the blog .

Speaker 1:

Oh man,

Speaker 4:

Actually I've finished off the dark series, season three of a dark , uh , the German made series on Netflix. And after the first part of the season three, I felt like the whole series of jumped the shark and then the last couple of episodes really brought it all together and made it a very touching and special experience. So I definitely recommend, but just know that there's like a lull where you're just kind of like too many crazy things are happening and this doesn't even make sense anymore. It happens early in the like early to mid , um, season three. The show's a great show though. And I think it really just redeem it redeems itself by the end of the series, I think.

Speaker 1:

So. Do you guys know how they were like redoing movies into like HD and four K and all that stuff? Actually the high Rez like redo that I found on voodoo for the original blade, some of the effects have been improved. I don't know why or when or how they did it, but I remember the vampire God blowing up at the end being really shitty and like out of focus. But in this version it looked really cool. It kind of looked like the blob a little bit or like Tetsuo exploding in Aqua , which is mispronounced a Kira for like 25 years in the United States, wherever. But anyway , um, the original blade, right. Um, where like there has at nightclub opening, right where all the vampires are like the sprinklers turn on and it's like a blood party. And then it has the , um, Donald lobe playing the really funny vampire that keeps almost getting killed. Like he, they chop his hands off that he regrows his hands and like he gets lit on fire and then he's running around like a , uh , Kentucky fried chicken, but then he comes back from that even, and is like just making jokes through the whole movie. Uh , they try to give one liners to blade , but they don't necessarily work. And I think we've talked about blade before, but like, you know, blade two is my favorite, but , um, I was surprised that I enjoyed watching the original blade, but it was like this HDX redo or whatever, you know what I mean? Like it was like sounded better, looked better.

Speaker 4:

They redid the effects. That's what it looked like.

Speaker 3:

I just, literally, we watched them a month ago on blue Ray and the effects , the effects look horrible on like what you're talking about the blob scene, but that was 1998 technology. Um, although I'm going to say something controversial, having watched them back to back blade one is the better movie, but blade two has the better tone and everything else. But I think the story in one's way better. Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Oh man. I don't know. So I liked the Uber vampires that are eating the other vampires and uh, blade's a little more laid back. Maybe that's what it is like he's so stern. Like he's like a , he's kinda , it's weird. It reminds me of like a 1990s Batman, you know, like he's just like so stern or whatever. It has no personality. They give him more of a personality and part two , but it's offhanded . I don't know . And three sucks.

Speaker 3:

Well, yeah, I think Guillermo Del Toro brought a lot to two and they creature effects. I just think, I think to had the weaker script, I think Guillermo brought everything he could to that movie.

Speaker 1:

I mean, if you watch the documentary on there, I mean, it's not a documentary it's like behind the scenes, 25 minutes on the DVD or whatever. Um, yeah, he did a lot, like he put in his vampire mythologies, you could see where like he just did a show called the strain, right?

Speaker 3:

Oh , you wrote a book or that show. So

Speaker 1:

Like he, he had that in blade two where their mounts open and they have those feeder things that come out.

Speaker 3:

Oh yeah. Well, when I watched it, that was exactly where my mind went. Like, Oh, he just took this into the strain . Yeah. Um , let's see. Yeah . I think we agree. I mean, three is just not worth anybody's time. Even with the Snipes was over it.

Speaker 1:

I mean, but they bring in Dracula, like, that's the thing, like you thought you think if they're going to get to Dracula , then it's going to be like tomb of Dracula. It's going to be the classic blade stuff and it never really gets there, you know? So, and then you got Parker Posey in there, so you thought, okay, she's going to be like the villain and she's going to do really well. And then they don't give her a lot to do. And then they bring in a wrestler, Hunter hounds, Hemsley, triple H and beefy vampires. I don't know if like those work, but it's like my intention with the underworld werewolf's is like, everybody's on steroids and they look roided out like that. There's something compelling about that. Like if you look at the Halloween werewolves , they're sickly because they're infected and then they transform it . It's terrible. Then the werewolf's could be big and bulky, but I don't know. There's nothing graceful about like a six foot tall body slamming vampire. You know ,

Speaker 4:

This made me think of the opposite transition. What if the big BP like guy, the ware wrestler guy changes into a tiny werewolf, like a little scrawny sickly busting at the seams , werewolf with the muscles leak and out and veins everywhere. What do you think he's just like too tall or too skinny or something. Okay .

Speaker 1:

I just think you're as a studio executive, you would, you could just do so much damage at him .

Speaker 4:

Dr. Jekyll, mr. Hyde, when dr. Jekyll turns into mr. Hyde, he becomes smaller. He like shrinks and he becomes evil and small. I don't know ,

Speaker 1:

Um, special announcements or reminders. This is where we like to tell you the audience what's going on with us. Dave is actually rewinding classic horror movies and writing blogs about them, which can be [email protected] There's actually a tab there called words about movies. And it's a button. If you click, it will take you to all the blogs. And he just watched Cujo. And I think the blog just updated yesterday or today. And it's his article about freaking the original carnival movie from like the sixties. So take a little of that stuff. And um, and there's other articles on there. We're waiting for Adam's comic book, movie adaptation submissions. And , uh, and Nick has went on there too . I got a couple on there. Um, and then we have Bobby logger , get it Bobby blogger. We have another one. That's just like our fake little , um , it's like all of us combined. Like I have these articles pumping out from like, I created a character for our blog, Bob IE logger . Uh, let's see, next week, we're going to continue our October season lineup. We'll probably be reviewing this Adam Sandler Halloween movie. That's going to drop. Um, we're hoping it's good. We don't really know. So on that episode, we're also next week going to include like our personal Halloween movie seasoned playlists , like movies that each one of us watches every year that you might be interested in hearing about , um, guys, any final thoughts on any of the blobs or Colorado space?

Speaker 4:

Um , I don't think we talked very much about color. We really didn't talk about it cause I, yeah. I mean the blobs are great. Check them out color. I just wish I would have , it would have been better. I guess. It's not for , I, I, like I said, I love color out of space. It's very moody. It has some of the best makeup effects in a horror movie in a long time. That may not be enough for everybody. Uh , although one thing that nobody brought up that kind of coincidental all of these movies, pink is very prominent in these movies. Oh, I know. Oh , you're right. Yeah. Incidental that all three are very hot pink oriented. There was no way color did not. The people that made color , uh , did not look at the original , uh, to blob films to get inspiration for a lot of what's going on in that movie. And I really liked , uh, the mother character , uh , breaking out of her Chrysalis and becoming a wonderful creature that should have survived

Speaker 1:
