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.
This episode we are tackling The Princess Bride, and it’s a tough one. This movie has so many unique characters, lines, and scenes. We had a really fun time recapping the plot and rediscovering some of the smaller moments that really make this film so much fun and completely watchable all these years later.
