PCR #54 - Alien Saga Spotlight Part 4: ProMEHtheus

May 17th, 2016

In this episode, we conclude our spotlight on the Alien movie franchise by covering the 2012 film, Prometheus.  In what was supposed to be a quasi-not-so-much-prequel to Alien, Ridley Scott takes us back to the world of space exploration, evil corporations, and alien lifeforms that like to kill.  We break down what worked and what didn’t work, the cast and characters involved, and what the point of the movie is all about, or at least we try.  After that, Xavier gives a good breakdown of the original script and how much different (better) it was than what we got.  Travis gives a rundown of how well all the Alien films did at the box office, and then read out a few of our listener’s favorite Alien films.  This is an awesome finale to our spotlight, so check it out and enjoy!

PCR #53 - Alien Saga Spotlight Part 3: Requiem for a Franchise

May 10th, 2016

In this episode we continue our Alien saga spotlight and focus on the (at the time) highly anticipated crossover film, Alien Vs Predator (or AVP for short) and its sequel, AVP: Requiem.  This was a dream match-up for years that we never thought we’d see on the big screen.   Did it live up to the hype?  We find out what worked with the films and what most certainly did not work out with what the filmmakers tried to bring us.  Are these more Alien movies, or Predator movies?  How do they tie-in to their respective franchises and does it make sense?  Who do you think would in a fight between these two monsters?  Find out who we would pick and more in this fun filled episode!  So hit the download button and enjoy!

PCR #52 - Alien Saga Spotlight Part 2: Aliens & Convicts & Clones–Oh My!!

May 3rd, 2016

In this continuation of our huge ALIEN franchise spotlight, Travis & Xavier go deep into the controversial Alien 3 along with the fourth installment of the original series, Alien Resurrection!  They take a look at all the behind the scene production drama from Alien 3, and the differences between the theatrical & production cuts and try to make sense of why they killed off certain characters.  They also ask the really important question: Does Ripley look good bald?!  After that, we make a case for whether or not Alien Resurrection is a good film or not.  With Joss Whedon attached it can’t be bad, right?  Ripley’s got hair again & acting strange, Ron Perlman wants to get in her pants, and the xenomorphs can communicate and swim now.  Oh, and its got Winona, so it’s gotta be good, right?  Hit the download button and find out!  Our huge spotlight continues next week as we cover the AVP films!
