Oh my god that 50 Shades of Riddick fact is the greatest thing I have ever heard and I can't believe every podcast hasn't been discussing it for years.
A Joe Carnahan movie starring Keanu would be good. Settle for a Joe Carnahan movie starring Mel Gibson(meh...)? That's apparently happening this year. Some science fiction-y thing called Boss Level, it looks like.
Chronicles Of Riddick is an awesome sci-fi action movie
I also saw it a million time
I named my first daughter Kyra because I was watching that movie when my wife went into labor and we hadn't decided on a name yet. Don't tell her that's where I got it from though! :)
We watched Bitter Moon (1992) the evening before my wife went into labour, and named our son after the villain, Oscar. (Well, not as a tribute to the character. That would be weird. We just liked the name). We had a few girl and boy names selected to choose from, but Oscar just seemed to fit. All those hours spent searching through names, just thrown out the window at the last minute!
That's dope, Paul!
My favorite part of the show was deducing how Gavin Rossdale ended up in Constantine. Patrick was like a casting detective.
I vote for a continuing series where we figure out how he ended up in The Bling Ring and The Game of Their Lives.
It's even more unlikely that there will ever be a Constantine 2 because when the tv show was cancelled they incorporated Constantine into the Arrowverse on the CW. I think the character is one of the leads on Legends of Tomorrow now and has embraced his bisexuality.
53 minutes into the podcast and I just wanna say: KEANAISANCE.
False alarm: Mark came through at 55:42
I didn't enjoy it, but it had to be done.
I fully enjoyed it.
I'm curious as to which movie that Patrick will defend vociferously that also consists of being standing around explaining shit to one another.
I watched this yesterday for the first time, and although I enjoyed it, the thought that kept coming to mind when watching it was "This is ridiculous". The first instance was a teeny tiny 17 year old LeBeouf as a cabbie (he was 18.5 when the film was released). I'm curious what the rationale was to cast a teenager for an occupation that almost universally employs older men.As was mentioned in the podcast, there was a lot of time spent explaining "the world", but I was often still left wondering what the rules were. I'm still confused by what happened near the end. Gabriel (loved her pants!) was going to cut out the devil-baby, like a c-section. However "Lu" stopped her, which I didn't understand, because wasn't that his whole plan, to unleash his devil-baby into the world? Or did he just want a devil-baby to hang with out in hell? It was his baby, right? (We didn't see the conception).But I did enjoy it. The performance that stood out the most was Peter Stormare who looked like he was having a blast. Keanu had the charisma of a block of wood acting next to him.Also, I read somewhere that Alan Moore didn't approve of the adaptation of the comic, which was the least surprising thing I've read all week.
Apparently he asked not be given credit, since he was unhappy with other adaptations of his work.
he never wants credit. he never approve of adaptation of his work
Ah, you're right Mark. He asked to not get credit or even royalties, during the development . It didn't say whether or not he was pleased with the final product.
Paul, we was not pleased
Very entertaining podcast, thanks. It's been a while since Mark has been on. I added The Last Black Man In San Francisco to my watchlist, but unfortunately its' not available anywhere digitally yet in Canada.I'm due for a rewatch of the Riddick movies. I only saw Chronicles once, and enjoyed it, but remembering thinking it would benefit from a rewatch because it's packed with lore/mythology which you wouldn't catch/appreciate the first time around.
Laughing out loud at work (and it's Mark that I am disturbing). This was fun, guys! It had, as they say, been a while.
so, you guys talked for almost 5 minutes about the actual movie. but the Keanu conversation was interesting.you should do that more. focus on an actor or a director instead of a movie
I agree with this. A Michael J Fox or Sigourney Weaver cast spring to mind
I'm still waiting for an "All the Erika's Love Marty Scorsese" podcast
