Mystery Movie Night turns one year old this month as David, Dave, Erik, and Michael talk about the original Ghostbusters flick, Peter Jackson's King Kong remake, and the surprise hit of 2014: The Lego Movie. We loved one of them and were evenly divided on the other two.
Ghostbusters discussion starts at 00:02:00
King Kong discussion starts at 00:31:00
The Lego Movie discussion starts at 01:02:30
Erik, David, Dave, and Michael discuss Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981), Damon Wayans in Blankman (1994), and Laika's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Coraline (2001). Even more surprising than the movies' secret connection is which one we liked the best.
Mark, Erik (returning from his summer hiatus), Dave, David, and Michael discuss Midnight Run starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin, Primal Fear starring Richard Gere and Edward Norton, and The Bone Collector starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.
Sadly, Mark couldn't join us this episode, but Erik leads Michael, Dave, and David in a discussion about classic '50s scifi, '90s teen comedy, and a Disney "masterpiece." Is Forbidden Planet as good as it is influential? Is 10 Things I Hate About You a worthy heir to the John Hughes legacy? Does The Lion King live up to its reputation? And what do all of these movies have in common? Tune in to find out. Plus: Our favorite Disney animated features!
