    Episode 163 - The Running Man

    This is what you had an issue with? Granted, being an opera singer probably makes those scenes stand out. Being a veteran Marine, I too find myself scrutinizing military aspects of movies and tv shows (looking at you Homeland!) I have to continually remind myself that they are movies and can't get every possible detail correct. Apparently the guy who played Dynamo (Erland Van Lidth) was an opera singer at Amato Opera in New York. Wouldn't he have mentioned any of this to the writers? Did he choose his own song? So many questions. The sad part is he passed away 2 months before the movie was even released at the age of 34. I see where you're coming from from, however it's a movie from the 80's about a a game show that kills people. Not sure they cared about the subtle details.

    Episode 163 - The Running Man

    By that logic, then The Condemned is a rip off of Death Race 2000 (1975) (except without the cars) and The Running Man (1987) and Battle Royal (2000) and all of those are slight variations of the book (as others have mentioned) The Most Dangerous Game (1924,) of which there have been multiple film adaptations as well. So, Steve Austin is not the OG Catpuss Neverclean. Just an FYI.
  3. Wait so if the third one is the Jacobs Ladder, then he dies while skiing down the jungle mountain or what?
  4. I was under the impression that they "explained" this through the plane being in a constant nose dive and that they were shooting guns, pushing off the wall, and that fire extinguisher trick is how they moved around. Granted I'm not a physics expert.
  5. First time, long time here. So since Zouks mentions that this takes place in our universe (a la the Coachella reference, and multiple references on the podcast to a Triple X and Fast and Furious crossover) here are my thoughts on XXX 3: Fast, Extreme and Furious(?) XXX and Dominic Toretto have to team up to recruit Vin Diesel to help find the new XXX who is Eric Bana. Or; XXX and Toretto have to team up to rescue and recruit Vin Diesel because a new villain thinks that the actor Vin Diesel is the actual XXX and is constanly sending bad guys to kill him, but because he acted in the XXX movies he knowingly has the skills to defend himself so he's still alive when he meets the other two. Or; The whole thing is a Jacobs Ladder scenario where in the first XXX when he jumps the bike over that building that explodes, the rest of the movie and all the sequels after are his "dream" right before he dies from the explosion. Still fleshing out why the second movie wouldn't be about him but I'm just spitballin' here.
