Zombie Take-Out Episode 319: Mr. Roper's Magic

Warcraft Scotto and Uncle John discuss the feature film adaption of a video game franchise that, like many others, pits orcs against humans, but unlike it's predecessors, shows both sides of the conflict. A game that Uncle John has been playing for almost a decade, so he isn't even going to pretend to be objective about the movie. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2016, Warcraft. Are orcs overused in fantasy fiction? Was the Hulk based on an orc? Are the changes the movie makes to the lore an improvement? Is it the greatest video game of all time? For The Alliance!

Zombie Take-Out Episode 318: Weekend At Byron's

Gothic Scotto and Uncle John discuss a film that gives a fantastical, fictionalized account of the events that inspired two of the most iconic works of genre fiction ever written. One about a mad scientist whose creation has become an icon and whose name has become an adjective and one that took a monster from Eastern European folklore and put a twist on it that has defined said monster to this day. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1986, Gothic. Should the movie have had more of a plot? Was Thomas Dolby's score out of place? Was Gabriel Byrne ever young?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 317: It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad War

Kelly's Heroes Scotto and Uncle John pay tribute to the late, great Don Rickles by discussing an early '70s heist film, masquerading as a war film, that could have been a commentary on the Vietnam War. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1970, Kelly's War. Should it have been more dramatic or more comedic? Would it have been better with the deleted scenes? Should even more scenes have been cut from it? Should they have given Harry Dean Stanton a larger role? What kind of accent was Donald Sutherland doing? RIP, you hockey puck.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 316: More Stuff

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind Scotto and Uncle John conclude their two-part tribute to the late, great Chuck Barris by discussing the film adaptation of his memoir, in which he makes a very unusual claim. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2002, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Was the spy story true? Was it too much like fiction? Was he just trolling us? Was it just a metaphor or social commentary? Was the non-spy story even true? Does it really matter? So long and thanks for all the weirdness, Mr. Barris.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 315: Stuff

The Gong Show Movie Scotto and Uncle John kick off their two-part tribute to their earliest comedic influence and the variety show that made him famous with a movie that takes a comedic look at both of them. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1980, The Gong Show Movie. Was it ahead of its time? How did the Popsicle Twins get on the air? What do you call Chianti and prune juice? Does a snake have an ass? Rest in Peace, Chuckie Baby.
