Manage episode 356409077 series 2159108
We are back with more pirates, more sinister, more foundation, but less Beastie. Hope you stick around anyway, because we do have almost an inappropriate placed tattoo.
We are going to talk movies this time. I am not really sure who reads these, so it kind of does not matter if it has to be about the book. If you want to hear about listen to the episode. For now, I am going to look at the pictures we chose and talk about the movies they remind me of and if I have showed them to my daughter. Keep up.
First up, The Karate Kid. Love this movie. A right of passage for a child of the '80's. Influential, quotable, and fun. Simple premise with a decent cast. And yes, I have showed my daughter all three original films. Also check out the Cobra Kai series....it is good.
Let's talk about the Tom Hanks classic Big. Coming of age story that comes on really fast, thanks to just a little bit of magic granting a boy to become a man overnight. Hey, it happens. Classic scenes that do tend to stand the test of time. And Tom Hanks....am I right? This is just a little too much for my daughter yet.
Do you all remember Dragonheart? Well I do. I also remember Dragonslayer. I could not decide which I was going to talk about, so I will mention both. One is from the early 80's and one features Sean Connery. I am not going to tell you which is which. But both movies have dragons....which is awesome. Huh...I have not shown my daughter either, but I am putting them on my list right now.
Hey, you know what is a great movie? The Incredibles....That is a great movie. A wonderful family film that is a pretty easy read on the Fantastic Four...minus the Human Torch. A family that has powers and fights bad guys. That might just make a good comic.
Another classic movie from my childhood that I have showed my daughter is the Explorers. Young Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson tap into an aliens signal and build themselves a ship to explore the galaxy. Love it. You bet I showed this to my daughter.
The number one adventure movie of all time, Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Also, Last Crusade. I mean, you have to just love that theme, that man, and those adventures. I love this. It is fantastic and wonderful. And, I did show it to my daughter, with a couple of hands over the eyes at certain points.
This may be an easy pitch over the plate, but I am going to say Into the Spider-Verse is a pretty darn good flick. You have to love the film...the story...the just everything. What else could we possibly say.
