Sasquatch: Strange Wilderness/Saquatch Dumpling Gang

 

 

In this episode The SGS team goes searching for #Sasquatch, but all we get is more #JustinLong. In the first half we discuss the #HappyMadison produced, #StrangeWilderness, starring #SteveZahn (#Treme, #DiaryOfAWimpyKid), #JonahHill (#21JumpStreet, #Accepted, #MoneyBall) #KevinHeffernan (#SuperTroopers, #Beerfest, #ClubDread), #JeffGarlin (#TheGoldbergs, #CurbYourEnthusiasm) and #RobertPatrick (#Terminator2, #XFiles). Through our discussion we try to figure out if #AdamSandler produces these movies as a tax dodge, the brilliance of #SteveZahn and #JustinLong and the ways that they pulled together a pretty fantastic comedic cast for a film that was loathed by critics and audiences upon release, but is gradually developing a cult following for the way they parody TV wildlife personalities such as #BearGrills (#ManVsWild) and #SteveIrwin (#TheCrocodileHunter), and America's obsession with #Bigfoot.

In the second half we discuss the very low budget Indie, kids comedy The #SasquatchDumplingGang (AKA #TheSasquatchGang). This was another Justin Long film that costarred #JeremySumpter (#PeterPan, #Frailty, #FridayNightLights), #JoeyKern (#SuperTroopers, #CabinFever), #JonGries (#MonsterSquad, #Lost, #NapoleonDynamite), #CarlWeathers (#Rocky, #Predator, #ActionJackson), #StephenTobolowsky (#Sneakers, #GroundhogDay), and #JonHeder (#NapoleonDynamite, #BladesofGlory).

We discussed the history of The #DumplingGang films that inspired this film, the inspiration of #NapoleonDynamite. The #comingofage story, and theorize about why Sasquatch is often used in kids’ films.

Ghostbusters: 30th Anniversary

Continuing our retrospective episodes on classic horror and supernatural films for 2014 we rewatched and studied up on Ghostbusters to provide our listeners with some deeper insights into this transgenerational cult classic. Throughout this episode we examine the development of Ghostbusters and the journey #DanAykroyd went through in bringing this to the screen. We also discuss the future of ghostbusters as a franchise, the #RealGhostbusters animated series, some trivia such as the ironic twist of the voice of #Venkman in the cartoon being the same guy who voiced #Garfield. We also touch upon the loss of #HaroldRamis, Dan Aykroyd's obsessions, #BillMurray's refusal to return to the series and what went wrong with #Ghostbusters2.
