aaron-taylor-johnson-colin-firth-tom-ford-party-02It’s one of my favorite episode types – and not just because it requires less work on the host’s behalf.  It’s Bring a Discussion Topic, in which each participant comes to the virtual table with something they hope will spur an engaging discussion.   Sometimes they’re duds, sometimes they’re great…and in this episode, I gotta say, they’re pretty damn good.  Oh hand for the shenanigans (have fun figuring out the context for each of the pictures I’ve chose) was Kristen, Nick Rehak, Nick Powell, Justin, and Dylan.

  1. Nick Powell says:

    I loved recording this episode. I hope everyone listening has as much fun as we did recording it!

  2. Justin says:

    Agreed. This will be the best LAMBcast ever, when all is said and done. Just saying.

  3. Shannon has a knack for playing ridiculously crazy people, and on the surface Forrest isn’t as nutso as say – John in Revolutionary Road, but he’s not exactly sane either. He’s a bit older than the other choices, but it’s about time for him to get a lead role and it’d be a bit nice watching him heading something like this. Like with Winstead above, it’s interesting seeing a less popular actor in Jenny’s role – and considering that Robin Wright (who was actually my favourite in the original film) was a no-name at the time it’d be nice seeing another no-name fill her shoes. There’s something deliciously whimsical about Val Kilmer as Lt. Dan; the sort of role that could be a comeback, perhaps? Chewitel Ejifor would be a nice match to Shannon’s Gump and Mary McDonnell is someone I could see filling Sally’s feet easily, she’s is great even if she’s not had a significant film role in some time.

    Great discussions. I love how everyone bailed when Nick (Powell) got on very shaky ground.

    Regarding Stephen Sommers, I’m with Dylan on this one. The Mummy is a fun movie, but I put him in the ballpark of Jon Turteltaub (bland commercial filmmakers).

  5. Hot damn The Mummy is a great flick. One of my favorite horror films. Although I might have the whole nostalgia bias thing going on. I remember ordering it through the Columbia House style mail order VHS program and I never looked back. The atmosphere, the sense of fun, the horror (pales in comparison to modern stuff but still), RACHEL WEISZ at her mother effin peak. Sequels were shit though.

    Also, anyone else remember Deep Rising??? Sommers’ only R rated flick (I think). Pretty good “terror at sea” monster movie. And two words: Treat. Williams.

    P.S. Phantoms is pretty good too. I held back on my enthusiasm on that one.
