Podcast - The Question Of The Week - Shane Black Movies

You may notice that we have done away with "episode" number our podcasts.  I (Mike) don't believe in it.  It dates the show, it's unimportant to the listener as to what show is what and where in the time line and if we want to re-record a show, then we have to go back to the show, replace the file and then let everyone know where it's at.  In fact, we're re-recording our Django Unchained and The Hobbit podcasts and we're leaving in the originals because it show's where we were at the time and how far we've come along.

I don't buy into the "podcast strategy".  The idea that we have to have music at the beginning of the show, that we have to have episodic content or numbers or that we have to introduce the show like this "hi and welcome to another episode, episode blah blah, of our episodic show..." BORING.  Joe and I retooled the show to reflect how we want it to be, so that you, the listener will enjoy the experience even better.

Trust me :)
Any ways, here is our newest show - The Question Of The Week.
Shane Black movies - What movie of his would you rewrite, remake or reboot? or would you do all three?
I know - you're asking yourself -
Self - who the hell is Shane Black and why should I care? and your self chuckles a little bit at this and answers back, I know right!  But then it starts to gnaw at you, that question that bugs everyone - "I know who that guy is, I just can't place him"
Shane Black is responsible for creating one of the most successful movie franchises. Monster Squad!  Also, he wrote something called "Lethal Weapon" which was a moderate success. Considered one of the pioneer screenwriters of the action genre, Black made his mark with his Lethal Weapon (1987) screenplay. He also collaborated on the story of the sequel, Lethal Weapon 2 (1989). Each successive script he turned in had a higher price attached it, from The Last Boy Scout (1991) to The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), and in between a re-write on the McTiernan/Schwarzenegger Last Action Hero (1993) script.
Also - Predator - He's got frikkin Predator money! Oh and he's responsible for the Lethal Weapon franchise.  Not bad for a kid from where ever he's from.  Also, he and chris pratt could be brothers

Joe and Mike sit and discuss the latest movie release and news of the week! Please join us.
