Greetings! This is Adam Frazier and you’re about to shipwreck yourself on Skull-Face Island, the official movie podcast of Geeks of Doom! As always I’m joined by the Damien’s Babysitter, producer Tim “It’s All For You” Grant. David Allen will be absent this week. He seems to have found himself in a pickle of sorts. I have a note here that was delivered to me by a baby pterodactyl earlier today. It reads as follows:
“Hey guys. Sorry I won’t be there this week. I was out and about looking for a Halloween gift for the two of you when it struck me. I’ll kill that damn Pterodactyl that’s always shitting on Tim and I’ll present the skull as a gift for the upcoming holiday. Well, things didn’t work out that well. In my attempt to kill the beast, I slipped on some of its aforementioned shit and was then tackled by the creature. Right now, I’m hovering above the island in the grips of the pterodactyl. Luckily I had a pen and paper and was able to write this note. These little pterodactyls are really nice. One has even promised to deliver this note. So, I’m sure I’ll be down in a bit. Or not, but whatever, I’m just enjoying the ride. Have a good show.”
Godspeed, David! Today on the Show: We’ll discuss Tim Burton‘s stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie and Stephen Chbosky‘s The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Our friendly neighborhood robotic butler MAR-10 will provide us with the latest movie news, including Guillermo Del Toro‘s confirmation that he’s writing a script for his Frankenstein adaptation For Universal.
Once we’ve discussed all the news and reviews, Tim and I will engage in a debate about remakes – rules for remaking previous films and when it’s appropriate to do so. Once we’ve hashed it all out, each of us will pick a film that needs to be remade, completely negating any opinions we had previously.
If you missed our previous transmissions, let me explain how this works. In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 experienced a mysterious, magnetic anomaly somewhere over the South Pacific. Engines failed, pilots cursed and prayed to their Gods, and three boys (that’s us!) washed ashore on Skull-Face Island, which of course is an ISLAND in the SHAPE of a SKULL! How cool is that!?
After exploring the dark interior of the island with machetes and bullwhips, we found an old communications array. Here’s the weird thing, it still works. Not only does it work, this thing is like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Video on Demand, and Apple TV combined – it’s got all the latest movies and television shows…
