PODCAST 212: Leviathan & Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo


This week Forest dives into his summer time terror by sea movies by reviewing Leviathan. Cory shares his appreciation for old school made for television swarm movies by reviewing Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo.

Forest chats about how terrible the online film community can be and how it's getting worse due to the new Ghostbusters film -- which spawns a conversation about equality in film and comics. Cory chats about UFC 200 and the various up and coming films made locally -- Unearth & Hell Cat's Revenge. All this and a drug addled, child abusive, "gritty & dark" Power Rangers film is on the way.

With regards to Leviathan, I sort of enjoyed it, but the movie lost me when they had this bad-ass sequence of Peter Weller, Ernie Hudson and Amanda Pays arming themselves with some rather intimidating-looking mining equipment (saws, flamerthrower-esque blowtorches, etc.). I was expecting a showdown of ALIENS-esque proportions, but they just flee to the escape pod and that's that. Talk about underwhelming.

Tarantulas aren't known for being deadly spiders. However, there is a species of spider known as the Brazilian Wandering Spider that is often called a Banana Spider because it likes to hide in crates of bananas (and other fruits) and occasionally show up in supermarkets in other countries. Its venom is potentially deadly, and interestingly enough, one of the symptoms of being bitten is priapism men. I've even read reports of men who claimed that their sex lives improved after recoving from this spider's bite.

Also, wouldn't it have been funny if instead of killing off Will Smith's character, ID4:R had gone the FULLER HOUSE route and had a scene where his ex-stripper wife commented that he had become an actor after the first movie and was too busy in Hollywood making the Great American Blockbuster: a sci-fi movie set in the future where the animals of Earth had evolved to hate human beings, even though the Earth had already been de-peopled for centuries? Then, everybody would stop and stare into the câmera for several seconds?

So BFG used to stand for Big Fucking Gun. Now it stands for Big Friendly Giant. What's next, Butt Fuckers Galore?
