Round three of our Roundtable series is this week’s episode and we finally talk about a topic that is near and dear to our hearts.

Two Man Round Table Part 5: Movies that Couldn’t be Made Today

Welcome back to the second installment of The Recasting Couch Roundtable series. Last year, we tackled all of the reboots and remakes and how Hollywood is running out of ideas. This week, we talk about the classic movies that could never be made today. We go on a little bit of a tear to start this one off, but once we settle in we have some fun discussing some of our absolute favorites and how they couldn’t get remade today without drastically changing it. Which is probably a good thing. Many of these movies are perfect as they are and are still incredibly rewatchable to this day.

On the third installment of the Two Man Roundtable, we talk about the unoriginality of Hollywood  that is slowly eroding the film industry.

Two Man Round Table Part 1: Movies of 1985

1985

This week’s episode is the first of four special episodes we’re running called The Two Man Roundtable (because as our company policy states, we have to name everything with some sort of reference to furniture) . We thought it would be fun to shake it up for the new year and give you a series of four discussions about movies that we didn’t feel we could really discuss in length during a normal episode. Over the course of the next two weeks, we’ll be dropping these episodes on Monday and Wednesday. We’ll be back to our normal format on January 15th. We’ve got a list of some huge movies coming up, so stay tuned. Today we talk about the movies of 1985. Continue reading “Two Man Round Table Part 1: Movies of 1985”
