Episode #405 – The Legend of the Roller Blade Seven

We’re having an absolutely legendary Smalltember. First we covered The Legend of the Titanic, and now we’re looking into The Legend of the Roller Blade Seven. Apparently they’re legendary, but forgive us for being unfamiliar until now. It was made using a system RB7 star/co-writer/producer Scott Shaw dubbed “Zen Filmmaking.” According to his wiki, this is a “style of filmmaking where no screenplay and scripts are used in the creation of a movie.” We’ll see if getting zen delivers a good movie, or whether it’s better to… y’know… write things out and plan them ahead of time.

Episode #404 – The Legend of the Titanic

Due to the ongoing WGA – SAG/AFTRA strikes, we’re hitting pause on current releases, and focusing on some films 90’s kids will remember. And while we doubt most Smalltember(vember?) movies are union signatories, we decided to keep the train a rollin’ anyway and make this a 90s flashback Smalltember! We kick it off with 1999’s Italian-Korean-American co-production The Legend of the Titanic — a bizarre attempt to cash in on James Cameron 1997 mega-blockbuster Titanic, in the form of an animated film featuring a similar star-crossed romance, but with a lot more talking animals.

Episode #402 – The Net

Due to the ongoing refusal of the AMPTP to negotiate in good faith with the WGA or with our union brothers and sisters in SAG/AFTRA, we’ve decided to hit pause on discussing more current releases, since (in our own bizarro way) it could promote that work. Instead, we’re using this opportunity to go back in time and discuss some silly releases from the past, starting out with some films 90’s kids will remember. This week, we’re discussing 1995’s Sandra Bullock techno-thriller The Net, a movie about the horrors of the internet that seemed prescient and terrifying at the time, and now just seems kind of goofy, considering that the horrors of the internet were way different than those it imagines.
