It’s been a while since we last recorded, so before our grand return to the Elevator, Tam brings his pitch from the live show earlier this year: a sequel to his Mexploitation remake starring Legendary Luchador El Santo.
In this week’s season finale, Tam retells one of his abandoned pitches: an adaptation of ‘Doctor Sleep’, Stephen King’s 2013 ‘The Shining’ sequel novel.
Wumi learns about the Psychic life of Danny Torrence, Deeby can’t stop referencing The Simpsons, and Tam really doesn’t want his pitch to turn into a Superhero film.
Deeby follows the modern Disney method with his live-action adaptation of the 1963 Disney Classic(?), ‘The Sword In The Stone’.
Put on your party hat, grab some cake and blast some Kool & The Gang on the boombox; it’s our first birthday!
Wumzum here for the Rugrats Writeup!
Deeby’s away for his birthday, so Wumi and I took advantage of this to talk Nothin’ But Comics! You’ll probably hear the moment when I realise I don’t know as much about current comic arcs as I thought:
This week we’re grabbing another tabloid as we prepare to FUSE THE NEWS! We each take two stories from the newspaper and smash them together into our own Frankenstein’s Monster of news of a story.
This week we’re joined again by HenryOMaestro as Wumi pitches a live-action adaptation of one of the popular webcomic-turned-anime: One Punch Man.
Henry’s the anime expert, Deeby’s a recent convert, Tam’s out of the loop and Wumi tries to cast appropriately.
Yo! Happy Valentines Day and all that! “Romeo and Juliet … IN SPACE!” was a challenge presented to yours truly by Tam almost as soon as he had the idea for this podcast. Deeby did what any right minded lad woulda’ done:
1) Put it off till Valentine’s Day was a stone’s throw away, and then
2) Made sure that his pitch veered as far away from anything like a Romeo and Juliet story at all.
We’re all looking forward to the Lego Batman Movie, right? This week we get ourselves ready by pitching our own toy-based films.
Deeby rolls the dice with ‘Snakes and Ladders’, Wumi gets personal with ‘Beanie Babies’ and Tam is down with modern kids in ‘Hatchimals’.
Hollywood’s just announced that they’re rebooting the ‘Shaft’ films, but Tam reckons he can do better that the director of ‘Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer’. Tam introduces a new generation of the Shaft Family to the gritty world of modern-day Harlem – whatever that’s like.
This week’s episode is probably NSFW. Probably.
Everyone loves a good foreign film every once in a while, right? This week, our guest Jan Lukas from German podcast ‘Kompendium des Unbehagens’ introduces us to the Japanese film “Air Doll” and his idea for a spinoff prequel.
