We also discuss the formula of Christmas films; we go off on a tangent about Dr Who and a few random topics of discussion, because you never know where a conversation about Ernest P. Worrell will take you.

In this episode Wayne challenges Michelle and The Justin’s opinions on The Karate Kid and why it may be the greatest sports film of all time. Darkest-timeline Justin and Michelle on the other hand were not as taken and thought it was too long, while Regular Justin was just as indifferent but thought it was too short.  Through this discussion we discuss the character motivations, the Stinson argument, whether or not Mr Miyagi was good at his job, how a janitor can afford so many cars, understanding Johnny’s Point of View, why Daniel is a great teen role model, and why Wayne thinks The Karate Kid is not a martial arts film. By the end of the episode Wayne gets his mind Blown by Darkest-Timeline Justin’s Fight Club theory, which surprisingly, holds together.

In this episode The Soylent GreenScreen goes searching for Sasquatch, but all we get is more Justin Long. In the first half we discuss the Happy Madison produced, Strange Wilderness. Through our discussion we try to figure out if Adam Sandler produces these movies as a tax dodge, the brilliance of Steve Zahn and Justin Long and the ways that they pulled together a pretty fantastic comedic cast for a film that was loathed by critics and shunned by audiences upon release, but is gradually developing a cult following for the ways in which they parody TV wildlife personalities such as Bear Grills and Steve Irwin, and America’s cultural obsession with Bigfoot.

In the second half we discuss the very low budget Indie, kids comedy The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang. This was another Justin Long film that featured the search for Sasquatch (AKA Bigfoot). Throughout this half we discussed the history of The Dumpling films that inspired this film, the inspiration of Napoleon Dynamite. The coming of age story, and theorize about why Sasquatch is often used in kids’ films.

Rambo: First Blood (1982) / Rambo (2008)

In the latest episode of The Soylent GreenScreen Podcast Wayne, Michelle and The Justins take on Rambo to discuss whether these are silly action films or if there is something else going within this character. 

We cover the usage of post vietman america and whether First Blood is am anti-war film, the Frankenstein themes, whether the sheriff was right to want Rambo to leave, and the importance of Colonel Trautman. We also compare First Blood to The Incredible Hulk TV series.

In the second half we examine the most recent 2008 Rambo film, simply titled, Rambo. This was the first Rambo film to be directed by Sylvester Stallone. In this part of the episode we discuss the excessive violence, the usage of the Burmese genocide and how this film shed some light on a clonflict that had been largely ignored in the west. We also discuss how Stallone was able to cast genuine Freedom Fighters in this film, why this film was banned in certain countries.

We also discuss the series in general and how Rambo was trapped within the franchise machinery of the 1980s.
