As co-host Luke zooms off to the Toronto Film Festival, Steve calls on some friends–no, family–to take on 2006’s much-maligned action sequel THE FAST & THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT, directed by Justin Lin. Lucas Black plays an American goober who is shipped to Tokyo and discovers the unique form of car racing known as drifting. But what happens when he locks heads with the Yakuza? And where the hell are Vin Diesel and Paul Walker? Wait, Han is here. We love Han. All is good.
On this week’s episode, we take on a film that helped to define what a summer blockbuster truly is, 1988’s action classic DIE HARD. Yes, we know this goes against everything this podcast stands for, but it’s the holiday season, and we’re in a giving mood. Plus, who thought it was a good idea to release a Christmas flick in July? So strap on in and prepare yourself for terrible Alan Rickman impressions, bloody foot fetishes, and lots of Twinkie talk.
