Ep. 30: The World Progressed and the Movie Can’t

Episode 30, ‘The World Progressed and the Movie Can’t’, on Pacific Rim and other bad movies

This week, Steven is away working so Dave sits down with special guest Scott Thompson to discuss one of Scott’s favourite movies Pacific Rim. The conversation also finds it’s way into other bad movies that we love, but don’t worry, it always comes back to Pacific Rim.

  • Intro Clip: Pacific Rim.

  • Dave very successfully auto censors his own swear words
  • Of course Arnold Schwarzenegger comes up, just to test Dave’s ability to spell while writing the show notes.
  • The conceptĀ of sentiment always makes people think of The Goonies
  • To the entire world’s surprise, Scott tries to claim that Princess Bride is a bad movie and that we only like it because of sentiment… Dave saves the day.
