Blade Runnner (1982)
September 20, 2017
Director
Ridley Scott
Stars
Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmett Walsh, Daryl Hannah


The guys venture two years into the future for this week's podcast on Ridley Scott's classic 1982 sci-fi mind-bender, Blade Runner. The Harrison Ford-helmed film asks some big questions about what it means to really be a human in a world with synthesized humanity, a question that is just as poignant and perplexing now as it was when Philip K. Dick wrote the source material in 1968. The Bit Players consider that question, among many others of equal weight, such as how M. Night Shyamalan would twist this thing up, what the porno version of the film would be called, and how many times Daniel Day-Lewis would have sex with a robot to prepare for the role should he have answered the call for Rick Deckard.

Pan's Labyrinth (2006)
February 3, 2016
The guys pull out their book of fairy tales and head into the twisted mind of Guillermo Del Toro for 2006's Pan's Labyrinth. They discuss the role of magic in the film and whether Del Toro's is a world in which magic exists or if it serves as a coping mechanism for our heroine Ofelia, how Del Toro subverts the fairy tale dynamic with his treatment of his princess, and the impeccable style that is used to tell this amazing and stark story. They also decide if Pan's Labyrinth passes the sleepover test, is better than Star Wars, and what the cast would be for the American remake. They pick their favorite bathroom reading material and torture method of choice.
