Fast Times At Ridgemont High

The Driver

After a short review of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time IN Hollywood, the 2 Furious podcasters take a look at Walter Hill's THE DRIVER. Criminals with fast cars and the win-at-all-costs cop who chases after them are front and center of this 1978 neo-noir film. The boys talk about the nameless characters, the fascinating performances by Ryan O'Neal, Bruce Dern, Isabelle Adjani, Ronee Blakely, and Matt Clark, and all those chase scenes. Plus, was it the subject matter, the final casting, or something inbetween that turned audiences away from the first film to make the Wheelman the central character of a crime movie? Stay tuned for Jon's Driver Unification Theory and more! We respect a man that's good at what he does. It's THE DRIVER!

Tron (1982)

The Neighborhood's Elite Hacker Bad Boyz, Jon and David, dust off their coding skills and tackle Disney's 1982 classic, TRON. The lads talk about Hollywood's first real dip in the waters of CGI animation, how much of the film truly was CGI, and the emphasis on technical achievements vs the film's story. Not to mention stars Jeff Bridges, David Warner, Bruce Boxleitner and Cindy Morgan, arcades in the 80s, first memories of the film and more! Plus, whether the film's title is a bit misleading and if TRON holds up against its LEGACY (There is a bit of time spent on the slick 2010 sequel!). He fights for the users. It's TRON!

The Bad News Bears

The Sultans of Swing (and podcasting) are traveling back to 1976, the year of the bi-centennial of the U.S.A. when nothing was more American than baseball! Jon and David take a hard look at THE BAD NEWS BEARS and examine the talents of Walter Matthau, Tatum O'Neal and Vic Morrow, the realism of kids playing terrible baseball, and the tension of adults trying to make children into winners.
