Question Of Why Don't They -
Question Of The Week -
Epic movies -
Grand masterpieces of film making have, throughout our lives, been a staple of cinema.  Cleopatra, Ben Hur, Spartacus, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Braveheart; the list goes on.  Every week Joe and I sit down and discuss a what would you do type of question.  This week it's all about Epic movies and What would you or how would you do it, do differently?
Would make Kingdom Of Heaven watchable
2001 A Space Odyssey
remake it and go in an interstellar direction.  Stanley Kubrick's version is so complex and vast that just remaking the movie would ruin the Kubrick version.  But coming at it from a different direction, doing it in a Gravity style with Alfonse Cuaron directing it and giving it specific style and concepts would preserve the Kubrick version and allow a differnt take on the story Arthur C. Clarke wrote.

The Wizard Of Oz  and make it into a Peter Jackson-esque style  epic split into 2 movies or so. Mike also likes Excaliber thinks that it would be cool to take tale like Le'morte de Artur and turn it into a couple of movies that tells the tale of the knights of the round table and quest for the holy grail.
Lawrence Of Arabia - don't touch.
Why Don't They -
Labyrinth -  Is it worth it to make a sequel to this movie?  Joe thinks that it wouldn't be worth it because it's really not that good of a movie but it could be done as long as it's not with muppets. Mike thinks that it could be salvaged and made into a darker tale.

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