5 days ago
The story of Bufford Pusser is an inspiring one. He returns to his home town to find it has fallen prey to corruption at every level. He stands up to the gangsters running his beloved town and becomes town Sheriff. He uses this position to clear the town of this corruption, but it comes with a tragic price. The story of Walking Tall (1973) is based on the true life story of Bufford Pusser portrayed by Joe Don Baker. It also launched a successful franchise, sparking two sequels, a television remake and series, and inspiration for countless other films. The remake of the film in 2004 was one of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson & WWE Films earliest movies. The names may have changed, and the story modernized, but the basic story of Bufford Pusser remains in tact. But how does it fair against the original? The Rock and Joe Don Baker step in the Invasion of the Remake ring and only one will come out Walking Tall.

Rated 5 out of
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.
