This week the Strangers visit 1985’s Ridley Scott fantasy epic LEGEND starring Tom Cruise, Tim Curry and a bunch of weird midgets. We talk about the prevalent themes, Rob Bottin’s amazing special effects makeup and a bunch of juicy behind the scenes tidbits.
There’s even a section that goes completely off the rails in order to explore the lack of morality in atheism and the nihilistic nature of most modern cinema.
Sit back, enjoy the ride and remember to always keep watching, gang!
A decade or two ago, talking about a movie like this wouldn’t have been a big deal at all. In today’s politically charged culture? Well, we’re fucking WATCHING WITH STRANGERS and we’re gonna talk about whatever the fuck we want. Join us, won’t you, as we discuss the Mel Brooks classic western comedy cult classic BLAZING SADDLES!
On this extra-long episode of READING TO STRANGERS Kevin and Jeremy chit-chat for a bit about all the drama from former FBI director James Comey’s recent hearing, the British elections and then set up this week’s COMPUTERFACE segment. (COMPUTERFACE can be purchased on Amazon Kindle here and in paperback here.)
Computerface finds himself captured by a small group of human resistance fighters who believe him to be a part of the machine army. Will they kill him where he stands, or is the information about the Quiet Land that they believe resides inside his head too important to go to waste? Find out this week on part three of COMPUTERFACE!
