Triad Election (2006)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Triad Election (outside of the US, this was released as Election 2). Lok (Simon Yam) bucks tradition to go up for re-election, but has to run again upstart Jimmy (Louis Koo).

A more intimate movie than the original, Johnnie To's Triad Election is another tense political gangster thriller. Faster paced than the original, this one builds well off events in the original.

SNL Movies

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Saturday Night Live movies. After certain sketches on SNL became pop culture hits, Lorne Michaels decided to produce movies based on them. 

Through fewer movies than you might think, SNL movies tried to capitalize on hit characters from the show; the 90s in particular was a heyday for this kind of thing. Other than The Blues Brothers and Wayne's World, most of these underperformed. It's harder than it looks to stretch a 5-minute sketch into a 90-minute feature!

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Ulysses and the Golden Fleece (Hi-Res Adventure #4). You collect the Golden Fleece for the King.

A pastiche of Greek mythology, Ulysses and the Golden Fleece is a mediocre adventure from Sierra. Around half the game is gathering a crew and departing on a boat before anything of note happens. Graphics appear worse than before, and, as always in these older games, there are plenty of mazes. Overall, a step back from the promising Cranston Manor.

Election (2005)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Election. Lok (Simon Yam) and Big D (Tony Leung Ka-fai) compete to see who gets elected as the Triad's new Chairman.

A political gangster movie, Johnnie To's Election combines tense dialogue, shocking bursts of violence, and a few comedic moments into one smashing feature. Dark, contemporary, and fast-paced, Election wipes away a lot of cliches of gangster movie while creating a few of its own.

Clerks (1994)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, and Thrasher discuss Clerks. A convenience store clerk (Brian O'Halloran) and a video rental store clerk (Jeff Anderson) kill time working their tedious jobs. 

Kevin Smith's directorial debut financed on a handful of credit cards, Clerks screened at Sundance and was picked up by Miramax Films for a limited theatrical release. An indie comedy with witty dialogue, Clerks never tries to outsmart its slacker audience. Smith's script keeps the cast and location small creating an episodic character piece and launching his interconnected View Askweniverse of films, comics, and cartoons. Before Clerks, Star Wars references in films were rare. After Clerks, they were nonstop.

Jon Lovitz Career Retrospective

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Jersey Jason discuss the career of Jon Lovitz.

Learning his craft as part of the Groundlings, a young Lovitz was picked to be part of the SNL cast. He later played a pivotal role in getting fellow Groundlings member Phil Hartman cast.

After being tempted by movie deals, Jon Lovitz left SNL for the silver screen. More recently, he has regretted this decision and wished he would have stayed on for a few more years. Whether he's in supporting roles (A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, THE WEDDING SINGER) or as a leading man (HIGH SCHOOL HIGH), Lovitz has always been a unique presence. He's also done TV, voiceover, and podcasting in recent years.

Wayne’s World 2 (1993)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Wayne's World 2. Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) try to start a music festival.

Rushed out to movie theaters at ludicrous speed, Wayne's World 2 repeats a lot of the jokes from the original picture. The edges are sanded off a bit. Instead of Alice Cooper, we get Aerosmith as the requisite band cameo. Its plot takes inspiration from Oliver Stone's The Doors and Phil Alden Robinson's Field of Dreams, Wayne is plagued by dreams of a naked Indian and Jim Morrison. Harry Shearer is fun for a scene as Handsome Dan, and there's a solid kung fu parody with James Hong, but the rest feels oh so tired.

DVD Special Features

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss their favorite DVD Special Features. 

Although the LaserDisc format from the 1980s and 1990s had special features for movies like commentary tracks, movie trailers, and documentaries, it was really the DVD format from the late 1990s that made such goodies go into the mainstream. As avid collectors of physical media for film, the hosts rave about some of the great, no so great, and just plain odd special features available on DVD over the years.

Starfox

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss the Star Fox series of video games for Nintendo consoles and handhelds.  

Nintendo decided to dip its digital toes into a new genre with space flight sim with Star Fox for the SNES in 1993. Developed by Argonaut Software using a special Super FX chip on each cartridge to power its polygonal graphics, Star Fox became a hit spawning many sequels and remakes over the years for the SNES, GameCube, and beyond. Its cute animal crew talking in gibberish reminds charming to this day.
