This week we switch it up a little. A couple months ago, we were recording a pod and on a whim we decided to watch a movie, then do an instant recast afterward. It’s a little shorter because we don’t do an introduction, we just sorta jump right into it.
We decided to recast Twister, the 1997 disaster blockbuster starring Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Cary Elwes and Jami Gertz the week after Bill Paxton died*. It holds up surprisingly well from a visual standpoint. This was the era right before the CGI got really good, so I went in with my expectations tempered, and I left with them exceeded.
This week we recast the 1980’s Aerial Combat classic, Top Gun. Now I don’t remember if I mentioned it in the pod, but for how many times I’ve seen this movie, I don’t think I’d ever seen it all the way through in one sitting.
