Last Action Hero - 8/10/13

Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Sean and Travis) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.

This week, Sean takes a look back at Last Action Hero (1993), in which a movie obsessed kid gets whisked into an Arnold Schwarzenegger action blockbuster by means of a magic movie ticket, and finds himself fighting bad guys along side his idol.  Listen in as we revisit this post-modern deconstruction of action cinema tropes and cliches, amazing feats of strength, improbable henchmen, alternate universes, the magical powers of Harry Houdini, soundtrack tie-ins, and once again bring up Brent's hatred of the original Terminator.
