SequelQuest Rewind | Last Action Hero Sequel | EP84

SequelQuest Rewind | Last Action Hero Sequel | EP84
 
Missing this episode of SequelQuest would be a “Big Mistake” because we’re picking up the pieces of the failed Arnold Schwarzenegger film Last Action Hero from 1993. It’s the tale of a young boy named Danny Madigan who is transported into the world of his favorite action hero for a fantasy adventure movie experience that very few people bought a ticket for.

This satire of 80s action films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Austin O’Brien, Charles Dance and many familiar Hollywood faces is 25 years old this year along with it’s box office rival, Jurassic Park, but sadly no one is celebrating Jack Slater’s movie milestone. No one that is, but the SequelQuest crew.

Join Adam, Jeff and Jeramy as they grab hold of Houdini’s magic ticket to bring you three possible Last Action Hero sequel ideas. Will we follow the further adventures of Danny Madigan and Jack Slater as they serve villains cinematic justice? Perhaps a spin-off adventure with Ian McKellan as Death wandering the streets of Tinsel Town is more your speed. Maybe Jack Slater needs to be taught that representation matters as a young woman rewrites the action movie genre.

The action packed fun is all here in our latest podcast as we bring you Last Action Hero 2 in the often imitated, never duplicated SequelQuest style.

TRN Podcast - Outtakes and Stories 001

You've heard us talk about our Outtakes and Stories podcasts on Patreon and now it's time for you to hear our first episode right here in the main TRN Podcast Channel feed! We have a really fun time recording The Retro Network Podcast each week, but as some of you podcasters might know, it's not always an easy process. Skype problems or distractions of living with a family seem to happen from time to time. We also have some great interaction between segments that we just don't have time to include with each episode. 

So in our first bonus episode, you'll get to hear our problems, screw ups, and off-the-cuff stories that happen during our recording sessions. We hope you'll enjoy and will tell us what you think! So far we've released three of these behind-the-scenes episodes on Patreon so if you want more, click over and support us at the $2 level.

SequelQuest Rewind | An ET Sequel | EP28

Is An ET Sequel Possible?!
(October 21st, 2016)
 

Can you believe it? It's been one year (2019 Note: Now 4 years!?) since we launched the SequelQuest podcast and we have a whole back catalog of audio memories to listen back to. Thanks for being there along the way.

What started as an excuse for friends to get together on a weekly basis and make each other laugh with movie sequel ideas has remained exactly that. Usually ridiculous, forever imaginative, that's the SequelQuest experience. Thanks to Jeff, Justin, Jeramy and Colton over on our SequelChat show for bringing their unique opinions to each episode. Here's to many more adventures in podcasting!

Speaking of adventure, this week we're pitching sequels to a beloved Steven Spielberg classic from 1982, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. This sci-fi fantasy starring Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore and Dee Wallace has brought wonder to generations of children for over 30 years, so we decided it was time to see what happened next.

Will Elliott and E.T. re-unite again to rekindle their galaxy spanning frriendship? Is this another whimsical journey or a dark, modern day re-imagining? Adam, Jeff, Jeramy and returning guest, Judy toss out some pretty wild ideas during this exciting podcast discussion. But whose idea will win out in the end? Listen now and find out!

SequelQuest | A Sequel to Shaun of the Dead | EP111

SequelQuest | A Sequel to Shaun of the Dead | EP111

 

Happy Halloween from SequelQuest! We’re celebrating the spooky season by bringing you our ideas for a Shaun of the Dead sequel born within our delicious brains. This comedy about the Zombie apocalypse introduced the world to Simon Pegg and Nick frost as well as the stylish directorial vision of Edgar Wright. After all these years, cinema’s original Zom-Com remains a hilariously gory adventure that left audiences yearning for more.

To help Adam, Jeff and Jeramy conceive the continuing saga of Shaun, Ed and the walking dead, the SequelQuest crew dug up an old friend, Colin who came armed with a cricket bat to dish out the laughs. So join us as we imagine new tales featuring Shaun’s long lost Dad leading a group of super zombies, a political battle of Zombies vs Vampires and more that will leave you with something to chew on besides a bag of Hog Lumps.

SequelQuest | SequelChat Review of JOKER | EP110

SequelQuest | SequelChat Review of JOKER | EP110

 

Adam, Colton, & Jeramy stole away to theaters to experience the newest DC Flick, the Todd Phillips & Joaquin Phoenix deep dive into a 1980's character study in JOKER. Ride the subway with us as we go deeper and deeper into the psyche of one of the most iconic comic book & movie villains.

Will this stand on it's own as an impactful portrayal?

 

SYNOPSIS
"Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks -- the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker."

The tale of high school outcast Eddie Weinbauer played by Marc Price contained an ear splitting soundtrack by Fastway and featured special appearances by controversial rock icons Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne.

Who will carry on the legacy of Sammi Curr and who will feel his rockin' wrath? Listen and find out.
 
KISS fans Adam and Jay can't help but gush about their fandom for Gene Simmons and the hottest band in world, so there's an extra treat for members of the KISS Army. But the real excitement is in the ideas for a Trick Or Treat sequel so stand up and be counted as you listen to the fun.
