It’s Ca-POLE-ah and not COP-a-la. We recorded this in January of 2020 which means basically all of the cultural references are outdated. Also just listen to how optimistic we sound! This was also, fun fact, one of the very last episode we recorded both in person and in the old office we used to record in as we no longer have access to it. So this is quite a monumental episode. It’s The Godfather saga, Francis Ford Coppola’s magnum opus. Show-notes: 0:35: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. 6:45: It was Robert Evans. 26:05: It was the Italian-American Civil Rights League. 36:50: The Godfather is so wizard, Ani.

Once Upon A Time…
Both Kiyan and I are upstanding citizens, I swear. Sergio Leone returns to Triple Play with a vengeance! With this, both Kiyan and I can officially say we’ve seen every Leone movie except for that one that no one really knows. So really we’re basically Leone experts now. I’d suggest we just shut the podcast down now but what’s the fun in that? I think the podcast will continue, anyhow… It’s Once Upon a Time in the West, Duck You Sucker! and Once Upon a Time in America. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/upon-time-west-behind-scenes-greatest-western-ever-made/ The Long Article https://scrapsfromtheloft.com/2016/08/04/the-making-of-once-upon-a-time-in-the-west/ https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/features/elizabeth-mcgovern-de-niro-and-me-109588.html https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/70066/13-epic-facts-about-once-upon-time-america Subscribe on Apple Podcasts!

Take a trip down YouTube memory lane. This week we decided to give Lucas Cruikshank some money. I’m sure he’s really hurting in this time, probably nearly broke, probably has no idea what to do with his life. And now he’s stuck at home, not much to do. Oh god is Fred gonna come back? No please don’t. Lucas, your time has come and has gone and there is no more requirement for it in the world. Please just. Let us review your movies and lets forget this all happened.

Surrealism is making a come back. I know we joke a lot in this episode as well as this description about this franchise being surrealist and also a masterpiece, but go back and watch it. Seriously, go back and watch it through the lens of them being a compilation of surrealist movie experiments and suddenly it all becomes weird as heck. I know this is more than likely not what they were going for at all, but it cannot be ignored. It just can’t! It’s Despicable Me.

Men in Black
You won’t even remember this episode when it’s done. I tried to dress up like the men in black once. Unfortunately I didn’t have a tailored suit so it looked pretty shitty, you know, but at least I tried. I’m not actually sure if this story is even true anymore because I’m pretty sure I had my mind erased after. So it’s just kind of fragments that I have floating around in my mind that I’m trying to assemble into a coherent story. It’s Men in Black.

Rocky IV, Rocky V, Rocky VI
So this week we’re dressed up in America shorts while recording. You’ll just have to trust me on the America shorts, I swear to god we were wearing them when we recorded. Rocky IV is basically the closest America has come to having legitimate propaganda, or at least until Fox News started. Is that joke too political for this podcast? I don’t think it is. It’s Rocky IV-VI, the seminal classics. Show-notes: 20:41 If you care, here are the highest grossing sports movies ever. 23:58 It’s spelled “Seargeoh.” 52:28 Having read the entire script since this recording was made, I have to agree. It was a waste of time. It was basically just Finding Dory but much worse. 1:02:59 Check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast Sources & Info: Stallone Q & A from Ain’t it Cool (including Rocky brain damage question) Talia Shire on Adrian’s death Stallone on “Rocky’s last bout” That one interview where Stallone got all dressed up Making of Rocky 5 video Making the final fight of Rocky IV Stallone on why he wanted Lundgren to play Drago Stuff you probably maybe didn’t know about Rocky IV Total Rocky IV Total Rocky V Total Rocky Balboa Subscribe on Apple Podcasts!

Lord of the Rings
The biggest trilogy ever attempted for this podcast… for a long time. This was a serious slog. Now the real question is am I talking about the editing or the watching of these movies? I could be talking about both, it’s really late at night and I’ve been up for nearly 15 hours at this point. Which isn’t really that much of a bad thing, but I’ve been working all day. A quest of my own almost. It’s Lord of the Rings, as well as the very first episode of Season 2 of Triple Play. Let’s get this start with some Peter Jackson classics. Show-notes: 1:32 Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast if you want to listen to us talk about classic sci-fi shows. 18:12 More on A Dog’s Purpose and the controversy surrounding it. 29:26 Here’s that wikipedia page about the making of these movies. 31:22 It did go from being flat to being round.

Inevitable: Episode 0
This week we have something new for you. This is Episode 0 of our new podcast, Inevitable. Because, as we all know, we’re basically suckers for attention and so as soon as someone mentioned we should watch even more sci-fi everyone has to have known that this would be inevitable.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command
This seems somewhat fitting actually. If you’ve made it this far, you’re one of like 6 people who have. Somehow I’m pretty sure Triple Play has only roughly 6 subscribers. It’s actually probably 5, since one of those subscribers is me, since I test that the episodes release correctly on my own phone. So yeah thanks all 5 of you! To Infinity and Beyond! It’s Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, as well as the thrilling(?) conclusion to the first “season” of Triple Play!

Number 10 will shock you! One day, when we have a big following, we can get clips of our podcast animated like all the big podcasts do. Then we can pay someone to animate clips from three consecutive episodes, which then would mean we would have our own animated trilogy. And then we could watch that trilogy for Triple Play, make an episode on them, and then that too could be animated. Where does it end?! It’s Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. Show-notes: 2:48 FROM THE VISIONARY MIND OF ANG LEE 13:00 Luxo Jr. and Tin Toy 17:47 Which do you think looks worse? Aladdin or Sonic? 25:25 it was Bud Luckey who suggested that Woody be a cowboy.

Iron Man: Armored Adventures
The age old conundrum. Coming soon to your television screens: Trust Your Doctor: Animated Adventures. We’ve hired an obscure animation studio from Trenzalore, who specialize in 3-D hand drawn animation. We’ve reimagined ourselves as high school students just setting out on a podcasting adventure, which is weird, because that’s actually what happened. So it’s not really a reimagining. It’s Iron Man: Armored Adventures, which released on April 24, 2009. Show-notes: 3:08 Bubbles is the blue one, Buttercup is the red one, Blossom is the green one. 3:40 It was Thundercats Roar. I guess I was so disgusted that I couldn’t even get the name right. 23:07 Snow White is 83 minutes. Alice in Wonderland is 75 minutes. 28:17 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast, if you want to hear us discuss material that’s way better than this.

Well this is the biggest plot twist of our lifetime. Last time we got stuck in a cave we were forced to start a podcast, and that’s how we got Zenith. Frankly we all know how that turned out. Pretty well actually. All the best things are made in caves at gunpoint. It’s Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man 3. Unlike two months ago these movies are actually connected in a trilogy. Show-notes: 4:53 Our Spider Man episode. I thought this was more recent. 6:00 Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot. 12:26 This Daredevil movie that came out in 2003. I thought this was more recent too. 13:12 Happy Hogan is played by Jon Favreau in a lot of these Marvel movies. 18:38 Quantum of Solace: 2008. Skyfall: 2012. Spectre: 2015. 30:46 Matthew Libatique is the director of photography for Iron Man 2. 38:08 Iron Man is by Black Sabbath. 51:20 Genndy Tartakovsky is a Russian-American animator who storyboarded Iron Man 2 and created Sym-bionic Titan, which was cancelled for merchandising reasons. 56:56 We also did an episode on The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (and the other Dollars movies) a few years ago. Sources and other stuff: The Making of Iron Man 2 documentary Robert Downey Jr.’s improvisation in Iron Man 3 On how Iron Man 3 was supposed to have a female villain Casting Robert Downey Jr. A few ideas behind Iron Man 1 before anyone really knew what the movie would be about RDJ getting into the role of Tony Stark A look back at Iron Man The Goals Marvel Had When Making Iron Man More on RDJ’s improvisation Iron Man 1 production timeline Some Iron Man 2 info Jon Favreau getting pissed about Iron Man 2 lol Even more Iron Man 2 stuff More about the female villain that could have been in Iron Man 3 Subscribe on Apple Podcasts!

Best Worst Movie
And introducing, the one, the only, TROOOLLLLLLL 2! Unsurprisingly there was very little expanded universe, well, “stuff” to do for the Troll “trilogy.” Perhaps that’s because Troll isn’t even really a trilogy, and not only that these movies flopped so badly when they came out pretty much every studio within a million years didn’t want to touch it with a twenty foot bottle of Nilbog Milk. It’s Best Worst Movie, written and directed by Michael Stephenson and premiered on March 14, 2009. Show-notes: 0:29 South by Southwest 2019 starts on March 8. 1:58 MST3K is a show about watching stuff. Kind of like this, but with more little-known movies that are usually considered poorly made. One of the most notoriously bad movies they ever covered was Manos: The Hands of Fate. 2:49 Birdemic and The Room are two other contenders for the worst movie of all time. I haven’t watched either but I doubt they’re worse than Troll 2. 5:41 Troll “trilogy” episode here. 11:20 Still can’t find the full script of the Troll 2 fan sequel, but it’s called Troll 3 Monstrous Beings if you want to try and find it yourself. 11:28 Trust Your Doctor is our Doctor Who podcast. 22:24 Her name was Deborah Reed. Apparently she has an interview in the dvd extras. Here’s the Troll 2 section of her blog. She’s also talked about Troll 2 in various interviews. 24:52 Chuck is a movie about Chuck Wepner, the guy who inspired Rocky. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts! Subscribe on Google Play!

Not overwhelmed. Not underwhelmed. Just whelmed. We made an extremely poor decision on what to watch this week. Extremely poor. The Holy Grail knight might tell us that we had chosen “poorly.” I’m actually running out of things to say to describe just how bad of an idea this was to even attempt at all, and yet we still decided to go for it. Because why not? It’s the worst movie of all time and quite possibly the least connected trilogy in existence: Troll, Troll 2, and Troll 3. Allegedly. Show-notes: 1:22 Troll 3 came out in 1993 in the U.S. according to Wikipedia (and IMDB and some other sites), but apparently came out in Italy in either 1989 or 1990. Which means it possibly came out before Troll 2. 1:57 Here’s the Troll 1 making of video if you’re interested. 2:45 Cellar Dweller is another movie directed by John Carl Buechler (pronounced “beekler” – we got it wrong when we introduced him). 4:12 The Neverending Story 1 came out in 1984. 6:35 Princess Bride came out in 1987. 7:57 If any upcoming movie fits into this mid-80s fantasy mold it’s The Kid Who Would Be King. (Maybe? Not exactly, but it’s not like there’s anything closer.) 9:48 I don’t think this is the same Neverending Story “then and now” article that I linked to back then, but this one’s better. 11:34 Heaven’s Gate looks kind of interesting. 15:01 Wayne Knight played Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park. 19:42 IMDB lists the 1990 release date of Troll 2 without “video premier” and then lists a 1992 with “video premiere.” So the 1990 date is probably theatrical. I was thinking of this article, which says that “Best Worst Movie,” the documentary about Troll 2, was direct to video. 23:30 We confused Michael Stephenson, who plays the kid, with Jason Wright, who plays the boyfriend. The interview we confused with the previous on is here. 29:52 Here’s the blog post in question. 31:34 Troll 3 was direct to video in Italy according to IMDB. 34:25 Quest for the Mighty Sword is the other Troll 3.

I’ve got a delivery here for Mr. Schreiber? Well this is a little unfortunate. This movie was pretty lackluster at best, and outright bad at worst. Which is a shame because you’d think the “real life Rocky” would have a much much better movie. Something on the order of, oh I don’t know. Rocky. It’s Chuck, directed by Philippe Falardeau, and released on May 5, 2017. Show-notes: 6:40 Scream 2 opening. 7:25 Blazing Saddles is a documentary about the American west. 7:40 Naked Gun is mockumentary about the American west. 8:14 Bedtime Stories is a biopic (pronounced biop-ic) about the American west. 10:14 Chuck is a found-footage-style docu-mockumentary about the American west. 13:59 Bohemian Rhapsody is a viral video about European colonization in the western hemisphere. 24:48 It was Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance. Not surprised to find out it was from Lifetime. Also I was thinking of Catherine Middleton. 32:14 Lock Up is a movie about good old Sly Stallone going to jail. 37:23 First Man is a scrapbooking project about the Great Plains. 47:53 The Imitation Game is a movie about Alan Turing.

Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III
I would not appreciate being called a Paulie apologist, frankly. This week we watch one of the biggest underdogs in history. Much like how our podcasts happen to be the biggest underdogs in movie podcasting history. Which is great, because now we know exactly what we need to do to become the biggest podcast in the world. It’s Rocky I-III, written by Sylvester Stallone and released in 1976, 1979 and 1982. Show-notes: 6:38 Look how in-depth Rocky’s wikipedia page is. If you didn’t know better you might think this was a real person if you just skimmed the page. 19:20 Francis Ford Coppola is of course famous for the Godfather movies, but he also directed the early 90s Dracula with Keanu Reaves. 22:15 This article compiles a few videos that explain how to make your own steadycam for relatively cheap. 28:54 Roger Ebert is probably the most famous “movie critic” of all time. He passed away in 2013. His website still features review and other articles. Other stuff: Stallone’s instagram post explaining how Clubber Lang was originally going to be played by Smokin Joe Frazier.

By which I mean, the Predator franchise killer is this movie. I think it’s about time to give up on the Predator franchise. If The Predator shows the direction of the franchise, then we should really just. Pack it in. I’m not really exaggerating here. Go and watch it if you don’t believe me. No really. Go. Then come back and listen to us talk about The Predator, directed by Shane Black and released on September 14, 2018. Show-notes: 2:24 The Nice Guys was the last movie that Shane Black directed and is probably at least five times better than The Predator. 3:13 Fred Decker’s filmography includes some “cult hit” horror movies from the 80s, like The Monster Squad. 5:33 I’ve seen stranger things than Stranger Things. 6:37 I’ve seen things more expansive than The Expanse. 6:42 Our other podcasts, Trust Your Doctor and Zenith, have been recognized for being the two greatest podcasts of all time. 7:26 I’ve seen things chuckier than Chuck. 7:46 And The Book of Henry wasn’t book-y or henry-y enough. Come on, Colin. 10:48 Here are trailers for Aquaman, Shazam (starring Zachary Levi), Venom, Serenity (not Plymouth, dunno why I thought it was called that), Overlord, and Alita. 15:13 Props to Henry Jackman for making a good soundtrack for this shitty movie. 20:31 I’ve been meaning to watch Arrival for 2 years.

Predator, Predator 2, Predators
Pew pew check out these guns. In space no one can… wait. No sorry wrong 80’s action/horror franchise. What’s the slogan for the Predator movies? Honestly don’t even know. Get to the chopper? If it bleeds we can kill it? Wow these suck. It’s Predator, released in 1987, 1990 and 2010. How does that make sense? Because we watched Predator, Predator 2 and Predators. Show-notes: 3:02 The Southern Reach trilogy is a book trilogy written by Jeff VanderMeer. 5:09 The Most Dangerous Game is a pretty famous story from 1924. 7:32 Lethal Weapon, like Predator, is another well-known movie from the late 80s. 8:49 The Nice Guys came out in 2016. 25:40 Behold. The majesty of the original Predator suit. 43:45 Sin City is just a movie man I don’t know it’s late. 48:07 The Darjeeling Limited and The Pianist were two 2000s movies with Adrien Brody in it. Too bad Brody is stranded on the Predator planet now. 57:39 Script supervisor or continuity supervisor. 1:08:07 The Women Men Don’t See is a 1973 story by James Tiptree Jr. 1:14:05 Black Hole looks really interesting.

The First Purge
Honestly surprised Hollywood hasn’t made a gritty Pooh reboot. This week we purge our bad feelings about podcasting. We just kind of vomit it all out into the recording and then boom it kind of just happens. You know. We purged, so all our episodes should be good for the next year now I think. It’s The First Purge, written by James DeMonaco, directed by Gerard McMurray and release on July 4, 2018. Show-notes: 6:54 Gone Girl is an ok movie with Ben Affleck in it. Also it was directed by David Fincher. 11:20 CheckOutTrustYourDoctorOurDoctorWhoPodcast 17:19CheckOutZenithOurBlake’s7Podcast 19:27 UFO is UFO. 20:57 Destroyer is pretty awesome.

The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy, The Purge: Election Year
Well, yes. In a sense of the word it is cheese. Triple Play is back, one week later, but better late than never really in my opinion. And we’re watching basically the greatest movies we have ever watched for this podcast, it’s The Purge. What would you do during the Purge? I’d pirate The Purge movies to be honest, I think that’d be really weird and meta. Show-notes: 5:22 The Return of the Archons is an original series Star Trek episode. 8:28 Ethan Hawk played Todd Anderson in Dead Poets Society. 9:11 He also played Goodnight Robicheaux in the new Magnificent 7. 9:42 Gattaca is actually good. You should watch it. 9:55 Don’t watch The Host though. Please, just don’t. 11:31 300 might be the only movie where you can watch Spartans fight werewolves. 11:44 Uncle Grandpa and Danger Mouse are cartoons shows. 11:55 Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is Jane Austen’s lost 7th novel. 12:01 Zipper isn’t a Blumhouse movie, but nobody has heard of it either way. 12:45 Will the wait for the next season of True Detective be worth it? 21:54 Suburbicon is a recent movie that apparently bombed. 21:58 G-Force is a 2009 movie that didn’t bomb. 29:50 The Santa Clause is the Citizen Kane of Christmas-themed movie trilogies. 30:28 Upgrade is apparently pretty good. 51:51 Rick and Morty is a show that represents all the bad things about modern American animation.
