Ep.93 Zero Hour! (1957) Vs. Airplane! (1980)
2 days ago
Surely not a Airplane episode? Absolutely, and don't call me Shirley. When the Zucker brothers were looking for a new project they stumbled upon an obscure airplane disaster film called Zero Hour! (1957). It was overly dramatic, had an absurd concept, and was hilarious in its sincerity. It really only needed a little push over the edge to become farce. That farce became Airplane! (1980) and began a new era of comedic spoof movies, reinventing the career of Leslie Nielsen. Airplane! took serious dramatic actors like Robert Hayes, Julie Hagerty, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, and Robert Stack into new comedic territory, creating a comedy classic. Invasion of the Remake takes to the skies as we explore a comedy remake of a drama, and remembers not to eat the fish. Like, share, and subscribe!

Fun, Funny, and Informative.
These guys (and gal) compare and contrast movies that have been remade and improve on ones they think deserve it. There are some clumsy goofs that are natural in the early days of a new podcast but it is easy to see that these hosts & guests are passionate about film and that comes through in there discussions which are often whimsical and funny, especially when they disagree with each other. They get better with every episode and I look forward to many more.
