The best thing about South Korean films is that they are really, really insane! Chan-wook Park brought the fan favorite manga to the big screen in 2003 with great success. Fast forward a decade and director Spike Lee remakes Oldboy for an English speaking audience starring Josh Brolin to mixed reviews. Often found on worst film remake lists, is the Spike Lee version really that bad? Listen to this weeks episode as we discus this tale of revenge, violence and incest!

"From outer space they came! Meteor borne, meteor strange! Now these amazing Monolith Monsters reveal powers! Shocking beyond belief! The most shocking science-fiction concept ever brought to the screen! Stranger than anything science had ever discovered!" These are the words that accompany the trailer for the 1957 Universal Pictures sci-fi classic The Monolith Monsters. Arguably the most unique invasion, disaster movie to ever grace the silver screen that you probably have never heard of.

Two children befriend one and another in this throat ripping coming of age story...wait what?

In 2008 a small Swedish film based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist called Let the Right One In made quite the splash at film festivals and global cinemas. Two years later the newly resurrected Hammer films took interest and remade it for English speaking audiences starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas,  and Kodi Smit-McPhee. While both films are quite similar, the changes made by Hammer make these films feel quite different. Join Jason, Jeff & Trish as they explore a world of bullies, murderers, and vampires this week on the Invasion of the Remake podcast!

It's Jason's birthday episode and the Invaders put on there shades and take a stab at remaking John Carpenter's conspiracy classic They Live with special guest Sam Stepanenko. They Live may be sparse in dialogue and yet it is full of quotables by the late Roddy Piper and some great performances by Keith David, Meg Foster, George Flower, Peter Jason, and Raymond St. Jacques. Improving on a sci-fi classic like They Live may be an impossible task but Invasion of the Remake is up to the challenge.

This week Trish forces us to watch & remake My Best Friend's Wedding. For Jason this is like kneeling in broken glass while acid drips into his eyes. We've now scratched that nagging itch Trish had for reworking a romantic comedy. Thankfully we watched this so you don't have too. We took that bullet for you. Listen to this humorous rage filled episode as we rip apart this Julia Roberts, Dermont Mulroney, Cemeron Diaz, and Rupert Everett led romantic comedy that came our at the height of Julia's career and was a bafflingly huge success. Don't miss our funniest episode yet!

Needless to say ****SPOILERS*** for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Yes, we went there. If you've seen both Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens it is hard to deny the similarities. So Jeff, Jason, and Trish use the Force explore the similarities and differences between these two films. A stealth remake that still gives us new and amazing characters to explore in a galaxy far, far, away. Are the Skywalkers doomed to repeat past sins? Or can Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron finally break the hold of the Dark Side? Listen to this week's episode and join the Invasion!

By the power of Greyskull we are podcasting! Invasion of the Remake is joined by comic artist and special effects make-up artist Reid Fisher to flashback to 1987 and our childhoods to revisit Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and featuring Courteney Cox in her first feature film lead role.

We travel the halls of Eternia and spot the incredible Billy Barty, Meg Foster, the woman with the natural special effects eyes, a pre Star Trek: Voyager Robert Duncan McNeill, James Tolkan still treating everyone like "slackers", fight choreographer Anthony De Longis, and the legendary Frank Langella in one of the best villain roles ever, Skeletor!

Can we remake the film that helped end Canon films? Sure we can! Join us on this week's episode as we reimagine He-man & the Masters of the Universe as a live action film for today's audiences!

Strange noises, that thing in the corner of your eye, seething with murderous intent. The only thing is that there is nothing there, nothing but a hand. A twitching, moving hand that is strong and can kill.

One wouldn't think there are to many rebellious limb movies, but we list several during this episode and focus on The Beast With Five Fingers (1946) starring Robert Alda, Julie Holden, and the incomparable Peter Lorre along with the Oliver Stone directed The Hand (1981) starring Michael Caine.

For another evil hand movie check out our Evil Dead episode! http://invasionoftheremake.libsyn.com/ep9-evil-dead-1981-vs-evil-dead-2013

In the near future walking flash drives hold the cure to a plague that is wiping out humanity...unless you are named after a guitar. The final nail in the coffin for the bankrupt Canon films was the Albert Pyun film Cyborg (1989) starring a then brand new superstar in the making Jean Claude Van Damme. Originally planned as a sequel to Masters of the Universe (we'll get to this one in an upcoming episode), Cyborg cobbled together a script, costumes and sets from the developments of Masters of the Universe 2 and a proposed Spider-man film and the results were muscled bound people in sequin shirts and chainmail obsessed with ruling the world. How could this go wrong? Find out on this week's episode of Invasion of the Remake with special returning guest Rod (Used Cars) Dornian.

Presenting the first ever Invasion of the Remake...remake. Our original Blobcast got swallowed by a gelatinous Christmas Song & in a grand sense of irony we have remade our original episode because The Blob is to good not to get an episode. Steve McQueen starred in the 1958 sci-fi classic, but the Chuck Russell remake goes full horror with Shawnee (Saw) Smith and Kevin Dillon. Which Blob will come out on top? Find out in this weeks special Blobcast. There's always room for The Blob!

A New Years tradition is to look back in memory at the year that came before so the Invasion crew are not one to break tradition, but rather than look back at what we've done on the show we look back on the films we saw in 2015. The good ones, the not so good ones, and even a few we never actually saw...cause that's how we roll.

Listen to us chat about Trainwreck, Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pitch Perfect 2, Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, Spy, Inside Out, Poltergeist, San Andreas, Jurassic World, Minions, Terminator: Genisys, Ted 2, Ant-Man, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Pixels, The Martian, Crimson Peak, Spectre, The Peanuts Movie, The Hunger Games, Creed, Krampus, The Hateful Eight, The Revenant, and of course the little film that could...Star Wars: The Force Awakens (spoiler free) and so much more!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) with Boris Karloff is a fundamental part of the Holiday season. A must watch by kids and adults alike. At the dawn of the new millennium Ron Howard took the Chuck Jones classic cartoon and brought it to life on the big screen with Jim Carrey, Taylor Momsen, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, Bill Irwin, and Molly Shannon. We take the Dr. Suess book which takes approximately 12 minutes to read, an animated television special that is 24 minutes long, and a 144 minute live action film and cover it all 101 minutes. That's a savings of 79 minutes. You're welcome. Join Jason, Jeff, Trish and special guest, contortionist, fetish model, fashion designer, and actress Visha Loo for a swinging trip to Whoville.

In 1964 David Niven played a high class confidence man along side Marlon Brando's more gruff, low class con man. In 1988 Bedtime Story was remade into the hit film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Michael Caine and Steve Martin took up the rolls. In 2015 Jason, Jeff, and Trish take these two comedy classics about competing con men to task and see which is best at the gift of the grift.

On this episode we travel back to the lot of Used Cars (1980). The Robert Zemeckis directed and Bob Gale written film starring Kurt Russell, Jack Warden, Gerrit Graham, Frank McRae, Joe Flaherty, David L. Lander, Michael McKean, and Deborah Harmon comedy about competing used car lots posed a bit of a conundrum for the Invasion team who may have bit off more than they can chew with this one. Is it still road worthy or destined for the scrap heap? Find out on the best best deal on the internet, the Invasion of the Remake Podcast!

Jason, Jeff, and Trish go car shopping with H.B. Halicki and Nicolas Cage in the battle of the Gone in 60 Seconds films from 1974 & 2000. Can an all star cast of Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Giovanni Ribisi, Delroy Lindo, Timothy Olyphant, Vinnie Jones, Christopher Eccleston, and Robert Duvall beat out the gonzo film making and epic car chase of H.B. Halicki's B-movie classic? Find out in this weeks episode.

 

And don't forget to check out the Lowrider scene on Youtube. We talk about it...well Jeff kind of rants about it.
