By special request from Emmy Kay, this week we’re reviewing the 1984 fantasy film The Neverending Story.
The Neverending Story is about a young boy named Sabastian who steals finds a fantasy book called the Neverending Story. The book majorily breaks the fourth wall and starts to talk to him as if its real. Which means that you are listening to a podcast about a movie about a kid who doesn’t know he’s in a movie who reads a book about another kid who doesn’t know he’s in a book.
But whose listening to YOU dear listener?
DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN.
There’s no little intro skit this week, because Melanie is gone and not answering my emails. I think it’s safe to assume she’s joined a technophobic cult that believes in becoming one with the land and venerating the radish. I had heard her say many times “To eat radishes is to be close to god”. Little did I know how far reaching her beliefs were. She shall be missed.
The Secret of NIMH is a 1982 movie directed by Don Bluth. The premise is that a widowed mother must find a way to stop the plow from destroying her house in order to save her very ill son. There are also several rodents with psychic powers. It was the 80s, go figure.
We tried recording in the same room poor people style (with one microphone). It sounds like we’re recording from within the core of the earth. Oh well, we won’t try that again. I tried to enhance this episode in the post-editing process by inserting smartass comments throughout. I’m not sure how that turned out. Any comments pertaining to my success or epic fail would be greatly appreciated.
Arrrrgh mateys! Ye be listening to our review of the 1991 fantasy movie Hook! In this movie there be the scallywags Robin Williams as Peter Panning and that scurvy dog Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook. Swab the poop deck and be ready to eat a parrot! Arrrrrgh!
Ok, enough of that.
Hook is the story of a grown up Peter Pan who has forgotten everything about Neverland. One day Captain Hook shows up and kidnaps his kids and he must regain his former glory to save them.
The movie was directed by Steven Spielburg and seems to get ragged on a lot by the internet. But you won’t see that from here! We both have rather fond memories of the movie and Roofio’s mysteriously dyed hair. In fact, if I ever meet Dante Bosco in real life, I vow to say, “Roofio you’re alive!” Then he’d be like, “What the %$#@&* is wrong with you?! That was decades ago!” Yeah, it’d be so worth it.
Also, I have trouble counting whores in this episode for some reason.
This episode I review the 1985 cartoon movie classic Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer.
Yes, Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer.
Yes, I have lost my mind.
Rainbow Brite is based on as series of hallmark cards about a little girl who controls rainbows and is in charge of all of the colors on earth. There is also a television series from the eighties that is filled with almost as much crack as this 85 minute movie. Seriously, this thing is cracktastic. It has pink sparkly mind control robots, a little girl who can breathe in space, a talking robot jet pack horse, and an evil plan to STEAL AN ENTIRE PLANET.
This episode is only half the length of a normal episode because we only had half the hosts. No matter how much I may love the sound of my own voice, I wasn’t able to record a full length episode on my own. Melanie was having computer problems and was unable to record the episode with me so I decided to record it by myself. Because I’m so dedicated. And hardcore. Hardcore Rainbow Brite Watching. It’s just how I roll.
Also, Melanie hates me now because she watched this movie for no reason. Ha ha.
