PCR Rewind #36 - Back to the Future

July 3rd, 2020

Hey buttheads! In this episode we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the classic film, Back to the Future! On July 3rd 1985, Robert Zemeckis brought us a film that changed the way we look at time travel. Things get heavy as we discuss the impact the franchise has had on pop culture over the years, as well as the cast, crew, characters, the fashion, and of course all the wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff (that's right I said it). So grab your Pepsi Perfect, put up your hover board, undo those power laces on your NeeKays and load up your copy of the movie as we do our own running commentary while we watch it!  Great Scott!

PCR #127 - The Different Seasons of Stephen King

April 23rd, 2020

Stephen King may be the master of horror, but in this episode, Xavier and Travis take a look back at some of his best work that shows he’s also a master of character stories as well. They discuss and breakdown three adaptations from the book “Different Seasons” which you may have heard about: SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, APT PUPIL, and STAND BY ME. They take a look at the cast from each of them, the characters, what worked for the movies and what didn’t translate very well, a connected universe within the books, the memorable moments and scenes, how they were received at the box office, the lasting effects of growing up with Stand By Me, and much more. They wrap up by ranking all three movies and getting a little sidetracked by some talk about IT (both the 1990 and current versions) and how Pet Sematary possibly caused psychological damage to X back in the day. If you’re a fan of Stephen King or just a fan of Stand By Me and/or Shawshank, hit the download button and enjoy!
