The Invaders are coming to remake your movies and only we can defend the Earth from the dreaded film remake.

Sep 28, 2016

Rutger Hauer is again the subject to our discerning eye, or possibly wrath, it may be wrath. Phillip (Salt, Bone Collector) Noyce directs Blind Fury (1989), a film loosely based on Zatoichi. A Vietnam veteran blinded during the war comes to town to bury some ghosts of the past and gets drawn into a drug ring that has devastated his friend's family. Good thing he was trained by local villagers while he was missing in action to be a master swordsman. The bad guys will definitely pay in this action, comedy starring Rutger Hauer, Terry O'Quinn, Branden Call, Noble Willingham, Nick Cassavetes, Rick Overton, Randall "Tex Cobb, and Sho Kosugi!

This one was a blast to recast, rethink, and remake! You do not want to miss this one!

You enter a small little flower shop on skid row. It's crowded with people and a large plant looking like a venus fly trap, but much larger, sits in a corner drawing most peoples attention. The faces in the crowd look familiar, people like Dick Miller, Jack Nicholson, Jonathan Haze, Jackie Joseph, Mel Welles are on one side of the room with Roger Corman who looks puzzling across the room at Frank Oz who has a crowd behind him. People like Rick Morranis, Ellen Green, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Jim Belushi, and John Candy are staring back at Corman and his crew snapping there fingers and humming. It is all so odd. The plant looks your way and gives you a wry smile, almost winking despite having no eyes. You turn back out the door and decide to order your flowers online because this is just to weird!

Welcome to the odd little world of Little Shop of Horrors! Today the Invaders eye their salads a little more cautiously after watching the original 1960 Corman film and the musical remake from 1986 by Frank Oz! Don't be frightened off by a musical, it also has a giant man-eating plant! Good times. Or is it? Listen to this week's episode to see how these films hold up to each other and the Invasion criticism.

It has 5 Academy Awards and boat loads of critical acclaim. It is on more must watch lists than we can count. So of course attempt to do the impossible by remaking Milos Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (1975). We might as well try to climb Mount Everest with our teeth. Who are we to think we can have a better cast than Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, Brad Dourif, Sidney Lassick, and William Redfield? Maybe we should be committed for even trying.

More importantly than trying to remake the film is discussing it. It should be talked about. It is still relevant today and we have a frank discussion about the film, and mental illness. Don't worry, we have some fun as well. It's what we do.

If you have your own suggestions of film classics that we should never ever touch please let us know on:
