Customer Reviews

These guys know their stuff

This is a really in depth podcast featuring some really cool info I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. The fake Nicolas Cage audition video was hilarious. Looking for more reviews of my favorite movies.

SportsCenter for Action Movies

Action Movie Anatomy is SportsCenter for Action Movie fans. They breakdown the movies we love by talking about the moments we love in the movie. They discuss why these are fist bump moments. The two handsome hosts (yes I'm comfortable with that) Andrew Ghai & Ben Batemen run through the cast, give you the cast's highlights in their careers, talk about the main star...They just show you their appreciation for the film and appreciation for the action star. Yes Andrew & Ben actually look like Sports Analysts, but they're fans, just like everybody else. So when I hear them talking about a favorite scene or favorite line, that's my favorite part of the podcast, becuase I get to see the guys geek out about a movie that I too geek out about. It's a celebration of Action & Cheesiness. It's an overall Great Time....And Ben does a killer impression of Tom Cruise.

Now onto my recasting of Predator, if I had to do it today:
1) Dutch: Mark Wahlberg, because he can play cocky and he can play military. He's not a consistently great actor, but he shines in particular roles. He can be a Con Man, Law Man, a Soldier, and he can definiteley play a man who thinks alot of himself. He's perfect for Dutch, because he can build muscle, and he pulls off playing a strategic leader and soldier.
2) Dillon: Erik King, I've seen him play the tough guy on Dexter and he looks like a tough guy. But also he can play untrust worthy, which he also displayed on Dexter.
3) Mac: Don Cheadle, he can play team player. He can give emotion to the character of Mac, when emotion is called for that character. I can see Cheadle being in fear of the situation of being hunted by a killer, but also show the anger within himself when his fellow teammates are getting picked off. I also think he could play crazy.
4) Blain: Ron Pearlman, now I know Blain is suppose to be Southern, and I don't know if Ron Pearlman can play southern, but he can play tough, he can play offensive, and he can play funny. I'd also like to see the interaction between him and Cheadle.
5) Billy: Michelle Rodriguez, I know Billy was originally played by Sonny Landham who is a Native American actor. And his character is to be a great soldier/mercenary, especially when he's in the jungle setting, because he's suppose to be synced into nature, but I believe the role would benefit from a character/solider who's familiar with the area, the jungle, Central America. I chose Michelle, because she's played military, she can use her spanish tongue. And she could add more bad assness to the role.
And finally...I'M GOING TO GET A MUG!!!

Great show for action movie fans
