Tonight at 9pm join us for another installment of "This Show is Awesome!" as we tackle the subject of Superhero Movies. The characters we've all grown up with have had many incarnations in various mediums but the silver screen is where some have proven to remain forever in our lives. We will discuss the history & source material that have brought this movie genre into our popular culture. We all have our favorites so call in & share 626-414-3557
On this week's show we'll look at Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables 3 to see if he, Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the rest of the '80s action heroes have anything left in the tank. Also, Mae Abdulbaki joins us live in studio to give a fan's perspective on the adaptation of The Giver, starring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep.
Plus big news regarding an Aquaman movie, Marvel's plans for a film on The Inhumans, and MAJOR Star Wars: Episode VII spoilers!
Remember when you would talk about a movie back in the '80s and nobody had heard of it? COMEDIAN GREG REIFSTECK goes back again (like a Back to the Future sequel) to remember these CULT MOVIES that only a handful of your friends had seen and cherished, but the mainstream somehow never embraced. His guest again this week is steampunk author WENDY L. CALLAHAN (wendylcallahan.com) who is also a movie geek. They will each throw down with their TOP 10 films that eventually gained notoriety thanks to home video and the internet, but back in the day were merely a blip on the box office radar. Films include THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI, CLUE, STUDENT BODIES, ANGEL, USED CARS, KRULL, XANADU, HOWARD THE DUCK, LABYRINTH and many more
The cast from our film Intense Fear join me for some real talk about how they got into acting, their goals for the coming years, first film roles and more. This is a chance for you to get to know them off camera before the film shooting begins and the craziness starts (Smiling). They are all so great at what they do in the acting field and have withstood whatever they had to so that you could see them in pictures that will make you smile, laugh, cry and be afraid, very afraid! They are all going to be in the magazine so look for that issue soon. The actors and actress who joined me were: Actress Marilyn Rodriguez, Actor James Michael Brandes (Promotional pic not available), Actor Francisco Huergo, Actor Shaikh Niass, Actor Freddie Kuguru and Actor Mike Nice.
