Welcome to Show #4!
Today, we spread the love for the gizmos, the gadgets, the weapons, and the stylings of two of our favorite souped-up monster machines. Re-live the explosions and the cheese the way only the 1980's could bring them to us!
Joining Joe and myself again for this discussion is David Moldawer, writer, videographer, and Dragon Page book reviewer. He'd never seen Blue Thunder until a few weeks ago, and he came away impressed. Dave's almost a full Ninja, so show him some love, too.
We'd also like to present a new segment, Old School Anime Reviews for Your Ears, by Aaron from Weekly Anime Review. This week's feature is Mobile Suit Gundam... Enjoy!
I'm not linking to the DVD version of Blue Thunder listed at Amazon, because the details say it's the older version, which was full screen only. The version I rented had full screen on one side, and widescreen on the other, but that version isn't available from Amazon. It is, however, available from DVD Planet for a tasty $6.99 plus shipping.
Oh, and I think I have to add a post-show correction. I mentioned that I thought the Blue Thunder was adapted from a book... I either misinterpreted a "Story by" credit, or had a crosswired memory with Die Hard.
