After doing a little online research about a low budget vampire movie called Stake Land (which could be set in the universe of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend), I stumbled over the Double Feature podcast. The hosts, hosts Eric Ingrum and Michael Koester, pair two movies that are somehow connected and bring to the discussion both interesting facts and intelligent analysis (or as they put it “blasphemy, skepticism, dirty words and bloodlust”).
In the case of the episode I heard (Die Hard + Man On Wire) the connection goes like this:
“Secret heist films that take place in famous buildings (and are based on books!)”
WOW! I didn’t know that Die Hard was based on a 1979 novel called Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp!
Have a listen |MP3|.
I’m pretty damn impressed with this podcast. The next time I see a movie or two that they’ve covered I’m listening.
