Movie Meltdown - Episode 392 This week we try to tackle the notorious modern "classic" - Birdemic: Shock and Terror. At first we start to crack from the initial "shock", but as we make our way through the so-called "terror", we eventually come around to a pretty amazing resolution. And while we revel in a land of lawlessness and sweet bird justice, we also bring up... spider monkeys, robotin', more Indiana Jones, time-lapse filmmaking, just as smarmy but with guns, Samurai Cop, the rotary hot dog maker, beloved 8-bit graphics, the first selfie, a sheet with a hole in it, driving around with birds, you're taking a risk... you are taking a chance, you have to be the fool, a lady alien, Jake from State Farm, cut him a check Yoko, you can't make a cult film, Transformers, Nagel artwork, the Al Gore spiel, winter is coming, you're mission is accomplished, did we break our Hammerhead Corvette, it looks like you went to the mall... in 1984, a mountain lion with water wings, the way that it's told is kind of the way that I imagine... like when you're a kid and you're making up a story, and you're playing, The Labeouf, a quick gruesome death... by birds, do what you love, The Attack of the Killer Shrews, the Spear of Destiny, a joyous life-affirming experience, evil underwater vultures, that is the mark of an incredibly bad film, your finger on the pulse of the history, if you owned a 7‑Eleven, whether you made money on it or not and who doesn't love a road trip... with machine guns... and never-ending ammo? Spoiler Alert: Spoilers for Rogue One. Oh... and I guess for Birdemic: Shock and Terror as well. "It takes a lot to make 'Over the Top' look like an Oscar winner... by comparison."
