SequelQuest | SequelChat Review of RAMBO: Last Blood | EP109

 

11 years after the events in Berma, John Rambo has settled in back at his family ranch in Arizona, caring for some friends & their children as if they were his own family. But when one of them gets a wild hair and runs off to Mexico in search of her deserter of a father, all hell breaks loose for Rambo down in old Mexico. Revenge is sought but who will shed the "Last Blood?"

Adam, Colton, & Jeramy rode into theaters to experience what's left of the 73 year old Sly Stallone & witness the brutal nature of a beast that Rambo has "kept a lid on."

SequelQuest Rewind | Short Circuit Sequel | EP46

Who’s Johnny? Why Johnny 5 of course! Though over 30 years have passed since the cinematic debut of everybody’s favorite spunky, sentient robot, we think he’s due for a comeback in Short Circuit 3!

Join Adam, Jeff, Jeramy and special guest, Keith as they discuss the wacky hijinks that made the Short Circuit movies so unique and ripe for revival. Enjoy reliving the box office dominance of Steve Guttenberg, the quirkiness of Allie Sheedy and the questionable Indian stereotype comedy of Fisher Stevens.

So what has Johnny 5 been up to since his 1988 exploration of New York City in Short Circuit 2? He may have fought in Operation Desert Shield, learned about country living the cowboy way or just been receiving Windows updates since 2000.

So listen to our take on Short Circuit 3 now for a few laughs. There’s plenty of input to make you feel alive!

SequelQuest | A Sequel to JOHN CARTER | EP108

In 2012 Walt Disney Pictures released a film 100 years in the making based on a series of science fiction novels written by the author of Tarzan. But this fantasy hero didn't have quite the name recognition of the loin cloth wearing ape man, yet the studio still released the film under the name John Carter.
 
With no indication of warring factions of alien races on Mars or the super powered nature of the Earth man played by Taylor Kitsch, the film did not rake in the moon bucks at the box office. But does that mean it should be the only cinematic voyage of John Carter?
 
Join the SequelQuest crew of Adam, Jeff and Jeramy as they imagine out of this world sequel ideas for John Carter 2 and explore the strange behind the scenes production details that made John Carter a falling star.

SequelQuest Rewind | Encino Man Sequel | EP5

 Hey Buuu-uddy, we just found this totally chillin’ movie frozen in the year 1992 called Encino Man and it’s mucho buff, bro.

It stars Pauly Shore and Sean Astin as a couple of wacked out high school seniors trying get on the fast track to the popularity train like a game of Rad Mobile. Brendan Fraser plays a caveman named Linkavitch Chomofsky aka Link with a totally wild mop on top and some killer acrobatic skills who has to learn to kick it in the 20th century.

The crusty crew of SequelQuest stopped weezing the juice long enough to toss out their ideas for an Encino Man sequel and these stories will totally tweak your melon, bro. So stop munching on that grindage and listen to the Encino Man 2 episode of SequelQuest now!

TRN Game Night returns with a new episode of Situation Jukebox, the improv music game that chooses songs in response to specific situations. Members of The Retro Network will be facing off and see if new champion Kevin can defend his gold record belt!

Playing along in this podcast will be returning champion Kevin (@teamhellions), first-time contestant Mickey (@yesterdayville), Eric (@Eric_Vardeman), Stacey (@geeky_vixen), and Jason (@RD80s) who will also serve as host. Using cards from the Boombox game, each round will consist of a different situation in which all contestants will try to come up with the perfect song. After each choice is given, players vote for their favorite and the winner receives a point. Once a player reaches 3 points, they win the game! Our twist is, song choices all have to be at least 20 years old and cannot be used again once chosen. If there is a tie, players come up with another song followed by another round of voting.

We tried a new bonus round at the end of the show. Each player was assigned an artist to use only their music catalog for a situation! Listen to hear how the new bonus round turned out. Find this episode's song choices in the Situation Jukebox 004 Spotify playlist.
