This week Cooper and Nolan are celebrating their 69th episode by taking a risqué ride with BASIC INSTINCT 2! 14 years after the shocking events of the original, Sharon Stone is back to prove that older women can still be sexy. But can older women carry almost 2 hours of movie without help from Michael Douglas and director Paul Verhoeven? If you've seen this then you already know the answer, but there's still plenty of ridiculous things to talk about and inappropriate jokes to be made (not to mention a beer selection that Ms. Stone would probably *NOT* appreciate from Country Boy Brewing). It's going to be a steamy good time, so ditch your inhibitions and get ready to dive in; this episode is a risk you won't regret taking!

Total Recall 2012 movie review is mostly the Salty Nerds talking about how many times they fell asleep while watching this extremely boring action movie. This "reimagining" of the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger film from Paul Verhoeven comes to us from the creator of the Underworld franchise, Len Wiseman. Starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and Bryan Cranston, Total Recall is the story of Douglas Quaid who may or may not be a secret agent that's forced to choose between his hot wife and his hot girlfriend in order to save the world from evil corporate interests, all while never going to Mars. Though this movie is visually stunning (with lots of lens flare!) and the actors are all very good looking, it's missing the charm and fun of the original film, and is the epitome of a "slacktion" film.

The Best Pick movie podcast

Best Pick with John Dorney, Jessica Regan and Tom Salinsky Episode 229: RoboCop Released 21 September 2022 For this episode, we watched class eighties action flick RoboCop, but despite the trashy title this is film which hides a great deal of cleverness and even heart under its brutality, bloodletting and general excess. The script was by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner, and it was the first American film for Dutch director Paul Verhoeven. It cost about $14 million to make, it took over $50 million at the box office and it picked up two competitive Oscar nominations and a special award for its sound. https://lithub.com/on-hilary-mantels-birthday-please-enjoy-her-1988-review-of-robocop/ Buckaroo Banzai https://youtu.be/RdanCNK4ayo Turkish Delight https://youtu.be/tK1wZt6MzI8 Robocop cartoon https://youtu.be/Yp4Sqn0eX_Q “John Murphy” https://youtu.be/lZd2YyuRaug?t=132 Smooth animation https://youtu.be/8ln11zEWW4U Militarised police https://youtu.be/WYdi1bL6s10?t=392 BEST PICK – the book is out now from all the usual places, including… From the publisher https://tinyurl.com/best-pick-book-rowman UK Amazon https://amzn.to/3zFNATI US Amazon https://www.amzn.com/1538163101 UK bookstore https://www.waterstones.com/book/9781538163108 US bookstore https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/best-pick-john-dorney/1139956434 Audio book https://www.audible.co.uk/pd/Best-Pick-Audiobook/B09SBMX1V4 To send in your questions, comments, thoughts and ideas, you can join our Facebook group, Tweet us on @bestpickpod or email us on bestpickpod@gmail.com.

Total Recall 1990 movie review from the Salty Nerds has them all wanting to get their ass to Mars so they can unlock ancient alien artifacts and party with three-tittied hookers. After all, they got 5 kids to feed! Based on the Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, Total Recall marks the only collaboration between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Paul Verhoeven, and it's glorious to behold. Also starring a very sexy Sharon Stone, as well as Michael Ironside and Ronny Cox, Total Recall is the tale of a lowly construction worker named Quaid whose visit to the memory implant facility of Recall goes horribly wrong, and now his wife is trying to kill him and he has to go to Mars to uncover the mystery surrounding his true identity. But are the harrowing events really happening, or are they all part of a psychotic delusion brought upon by a botched Recall procedure? What is your Total Recall 1990 movie review? Did you love it?

Directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring a motley mix of 1990's handsome people, the sci-fi film fared poorly in its original theatrical run.

This episode we look at the Cool Copaganda dystopian classic ROBOCOP.   But first Raquel worries about the future of Stephen King movies after FIRESTARTER tanks at the box office and Raphael has to assure her that Stephen's career will be just fine even if they stop releasing adaptations of his stuff (which they never will).   This is a 1st watch for Raquel, who actually thought it was an Arnold Schwarzeneggar movie all these years. How relevant is this movie today? Is it too stuck in the 1980s? Raphael breaks down modern policing and its problems and how ROBOCOP actually was a depressingly prescient film in that regard. There a whole lot of talk about the privitization of the public sector in modern times and how ROBOCOP follows a trend of films that warned us about the problems of that. Dutch director Paul Verhoeven's outsider eye on American culture seems to be a perfect blend of cynicism and comedy. Its crazy how much this film feels like a proto-24 hour news cycle TV channel.   This movie is far smarter than it needed to be, and you'll be too after listening to this episode!   The Generation Splice is a film podcast where retired psychologist Dr. Raquel Martinez, a Baby Boomer through & through, & her son Raphael Jose Martinez, a cranky millennial punk rocker/film writer, discuss various films through the lens of their generation & personal experiences.

Ian and Cole lock pincers for a very special look at Starship Troopers!In the distant future, mankind has expanded its reach into deep space, united by an omnipresent military culture. When a far-flung species of giant bug-like aliens threatens to destroy Earth, a young Mobile Infantry recruit finds himself thrust into a world of gut-wrenching combat, moral challenges, and the chilling prospect that a new lifeform is viciously ascending the food chain.Paul Verhoeven's 1997 big-budget flop was billed as a biting military satire set against a sci-fi action backdrop. But in adapting Robert Heinlein's serious-minded, award-winning 1959 novel, the Robocop director appears to have (literally) lost the plot.In this spoilerific examination, the guys approach this dilemma from very different angles: one loved the book and disliked much of the movie; the other hated Heinlein's novel and found the film to be goofy but enjoyable. From teen drama love triangles, to a debate on propaganda, to the mystery of the missing mech suits, this installment of "Page2Screen" establishes a wide perimeter for its scorched-earth bug hunt!Show Links:Watch the Starship Troopers trailer.Keep up with all of Cole's literary criticism at:The Quill to LiveTorPlus: In case you missed it, check out Cole's recent appearance on NBC's revival of the classic game show, Password!
