Hollywood has unleashed monsters on an unsuspecting country. No, I don’t mean predatory Hollywood executives.
We’re talking, of course, about the 2018 Duane Johnson blockbuster movie “RAMPAGE”, based on the beloved 1986 arcade game. An evil corporation loses it’s “gene-editing” sample. A wolf, a crocodile and a gentle, though foul-mouthed (tsk)(via sign language), gorilla named George grow to thirty feet tall and go on a, well, on a RAMPAGE to Chicago. As one does.
This week, on episode 118, we’re taking a break from playing games and making up stories about them to watch a MOVIE based on a game and analyze its story. Let someone else do the work for once. We’re busy eating popcorn.*
*And Junior Mints.**
**I was hungry. Stop judging.
I’m pretty sure Duane Johnson will be calling any day now to be on the podcast after he hears this episode.
Oh, and in the episode, I shamelessly beg creamy, refreshing Junior Mints to sponsor the show. Junior Mints, call me!
