    Episode 128 - Streets of Fire: LIVE!

    This wasn't ALL filmed on the Universal lot. There was actual location shooting in Chicago at the famed intersection of Milwaukee/North Avenue/Damen. Here's a screen cap from Streets of Fire: https://www.google.com/maps/place/1547+N+Damen+Ave,+Chicago,+IL+60622/@41.9097963,-87.6779741,19z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x880fd2c7676cc191:0x66a8fcbfbf3c4720 This is the Damen Avenue Blue Line el stop, looking North down Damen. This intersection is also seen in Flatliners, when Keifer Sutherland is walking across the street and is surrounded by bicycles before he walks down an alley and gets his ass kicked by his karma (that alley is also in the Kevin Bacon movie Stir of Echoes, making this an alley with a Bacon number of one; you can see the alley in this shot - there's a break in the sidewalk just past the streetlight/Lily's Cleaners & Shoe Repair - that's the alley). Also, just across the street from this train station in the screen cap from Streets of Fire is the The Double Door, which in an incarnation under the name 'Main Street USA' was featured prominently in Steven Segal's debut "Above The Law". This intersection at North/Damen/Milwaukee is also seen in Robin William's Club Paradise, the Belushi/Arnold pairing Red Heat, and in Cusack's High Fidelity. When you guys do a show in Chicago, I will happily give you a tour.

    Episode 86 — Ernest Goes To Jail

    I think Adam Driver is Jim Varney's son. Somehow.
  3. this was definitely a 'six beers to Santa Mira' movie. maybe i'm just having trouble sitting still. I had someone describe this movie to me when I was a kid and I still remember what they told me, so I knew what was coming. Except Stonehenge. I don't remember them mentioning that. That was awesome.

    The 6th Day (2000)

    I love any movie with Michael Rooker, but the XFL demands it be done.
  5. Any movie where Jeff Goldblum, Ed Begley, Jr., and Norman Fell share a scene must be done. This could be a November movie because true story: I saw this at the theater on my 11th birthday in November 1985. My sister got her period so bad that day she passed out, dented the wall and had to be taken away in an ambulance. Then I went to see this movie. I'm so glad it's on Netflix. Thanks!
