PODCAST 48: The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms & It Came From Beneath the Sea [Harryhausen Edition]

This week Forest & Cory pay tribute to the late and great Ray Harryhausen, as they review The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms and It Came From Beneath the Sea. They also discuss the charm of stop-motion animation and how CGI may look more realistic, but will always play second fiddle.

The gang also brainstorm how they should celebrate their one year podcast anniversary. They chat about Forest's 31st birthday party, flea market finds and Pain & Gain. All this and "feminism will break your heart."

Best stop motion movie bar-none: King Kong.

I have a movie recommendation, especially if you haven't chosen a film for the "special event" yet. It's probably the greatest vampire movie ever made. It's not Dracula, it's not Nosferatu, and it's not frikkin Twilight (though it would probably be hilarious to hear you guys get drunk and ramble over watching one of those movies).

It's Lifeforce, the best space vampire movie ever made. It's got one of the best opening musical scores ever done, great special effects, a scope that becomes epic by the end of the film, does nice references to the Dracula story, and has a hot vampire chick that gets naked on a few occasions throughout the movie.

Drinking game for it: take a shot whenever the vampire chick is naked in a scene, whenever she makes out with someone, and 2 shots when Jean Luke Picard gets kissed. I would say take a shot whenever someone's soul gets sucked out, but you wouldn't last the final 20 minutes of the movie.
