Episode 7: Last Action Hero

Grab your big gun and disregard the currently negative view of firearms regulation in the modern political climate and lock and load for a new episode!

Author and returning guest Melissa “Frickin” Olson is back on the show to put the collar on Last Action Hero! We partner up on this episode to take shots at the action movie satire that was so ahead of its time, it was way too early and frankly had trouble finding an audience. While we’re on the beat, we’ll indulge in a little more film school talk, discuss living in the shadow of Jurassic Park, catalog action movie tropes, check in with a young(er) Charles Dance, and examine the cosmology of a “Purple Rose” situation!

Plus, we speculate on what the plot of Jack Slater 4 actually was, what Angie Everhart would be like as a co-worker, assemble a Schwarzenegger meta-timeline, Aaron posits a “Roomiverse”, Melissa tells him to take it easy, and we somehow tie the movie to Deadpool and America’s Sweethearts!

This movie is the Wizard of Oz with guns and it’s somehow not as cool as that sounds! Look! Elephant!
