Joe Dante: Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)

We continue our month of Joe Dante with a look at perhaps one of the zanier films in his filmography – Gremlins 2: The New Batch. There’s so much to love here, from the wonderful puppet design to the brilliant and comedic turn from Christopher Lee. Dante even got Chuck Jones to do the intro to the film, which should tell you everything else you need to know.

We also briefly discuss his film Small Soldiers and get into some of the hype surrounding that film. There’s a lot of discussion packed into this episode so be sure to keep your Mogwai hidden away in a cool, dry place (preferably with Rambo playing on a nearby TV) before settling down to listen to this week’s episode.

Chapter 34 – Prolonged Engagement

The prolonged engagement starts to turn in favor of the tiefling, but they aren’t free of the danger just yet. There’s still that rift to deal with as well as the fact that this galleon’s arrival was just too damned convenient.

Joe Dante: Hollywood Boulevard (1976)

We’ve tweaked our podcast formula a bit and are proud to present to you the first episode of BEHIND THE HYPE which looks back through a filmmaker’s career to examine their early or more obscure works. Every month we’ll tackle a different filmmaker, covering at least four of their movies.

This month we’re delving into the career of Joe Dante with his first film Hollywood Boulevard, from 1976. We also briefly discuss the short “French Ventriloquist’s Dummy” from the 1987 film Amazon Women on the Moon.

Chapter 33 – Weathering the Storm

The tableau is pure chaos. Nine hellfire riders advance upon the four tiefling, and once again a tear in the fabric of reality has spit out abyssal spawn. As if that weren’t enough, a flying galleon has just broken the cloud cover, seemingly in pursuit of the riders. Get ready for some serious shit.

7.05: The Inamorata Consequence

This week on the podcast Bryan Dressel, Graham “H.E.L.P.eR. MOD-2” Mason, and Matt “Corporal Snoopy” Dykes talk The Inamorata Consequence, which is quite enjoyable…unless you’re Matt. The Guild of Calamitous Intent and the OSI renegotiate their contract, Hank reunites with Dermot, and Dean goes back to the place where he learned that he and Hank were clones…only to find out that Rusty was ALSO A CLONE. Oh, and did you know that H.E.L.P.eR. MOD-2 was voiced by Rhys Darby? Fun!
