 Remakers Mark Special Episode 25: Cover Songs Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 47:27

We typically talk about remaking movies, but crazy times call for…special episodes. Let’s mix things up. Instead of movies, what about songs? Welcome to part 1 of a two-part special episode, where we talk about our favorite and least-favorite song covers. This episode deals with some of our most beloved covers. We get nasty in […]

 Remakers Mark 54 Part 2 {Raiders of the Lost Ark}: Ol’ Medallion Hand | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 45:41

I assume he punched him so hard he exploded, and his hat popped up. – Andy In a topsy-turvy world, it’s good to know that ​Raiders of the Lost Ark​ exists. We are not shy in our praise of this movie, despite its inherent silliness and gaping plot holes and such. If ever there was […]

 Remakers Mark 54 Part 1 {Raiders of the Lost Ark}: Questionable Archaeological Ethics | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 53:09

From out of the deep in the darkest jungles of South America, nimbly avoiding amazingly crafted ancient architectural traps, covered in cobwebs, emerges the first half of our episode on Raiders of the Lost Ark! Oh, what fun we had. We check off another iconic character from our recasting list (COUGH*melty-face Nazi*COUGH) and generally talk […]

 Remakers Mark 53 Part 2 {Z}: Everybody was Awkward Mob Fighting | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 45:10

Any reference to real events and persons living or dead is not accidental. It is deliberate. We conclude our recasting and discussion of Z, the 1969 French-Algerian political murder suspense procedural drama. We talk about how awkward it is to watch people fight. We talk about other movies that fictionalized events in their own time. We […]

‘Tis that time o’ the year, dear friends, when we remember some of our favorite thespians that have shuffled off this mortal coil in the past year.

 Remakers Mark 52 Part 2 {Metropolis}: Expressionistic Gravy | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:33

As a physical education major, let me explain German Expressionism to you… In part 2 of our discussion of Metropolis, things go off the rails quickly and often. Once again, the curse of this movie has reduced us to 80% capacity, but our B- strength is still enough for an A+ performance. OK, maybe an A-. […]

 Remakers Mark 52 Part 1 {Metropolis}: Witchy (Robot) Woman | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 50:34

We step into the way way back machine and recast what some call the first true science fiction movie, Fritz Lang’s 1927 release of Metropolis. Though we operated at 80% capacity this time, we came at you with 100% tenacity and 1000% genius with our character picks (though Andy’s were criminally underrepresented due to his…lack […]

 Remakers Mark 51 Part 2 {12 Monkeys}: Stuff Sewn to Junk | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 53:23

I was going to tell a time travel joke but you guys didn’t like it. After a hiatus for our European tour, Remaker’s Mark is back with the conclusion of our episode on Twelve Monkeys. So much Terry Gilliamness! Is it too much, yet somehow not enough? Place your bets on who gave this the […]

 Remakers Mark 51 Part 1 {12 Monkeys}: Manic Plus Joy | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 55:52

Quiet, but not in the charming way. Because we like messing with the time-space continuum, we decided to take on Terry Gilliam’s 1995 film Twelve Monkeys. Or did this already happen in the past? Why do you look familiar? I’ve seen you before… Twelve Monkeys Terry Gilliam Bruce Willis Madeleine Stowe Brad Pitt Remakers Mark […]

 Remakers Mark 50 Part 3 {Planes Trains and Automobiles}: Shenaniganize! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 36:31

We were all using our very best NPR voices… Part 3 (WHAT?!) of our discussion of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is here, in which we discuss our alpha test episode from way back in 2012, and how our picks (and the whole dang podcast itself) have changed since then. Andy is still proud of his […]

 Remakers Mark 50 Part 2 {Planes, Trains, and Automobiles}: The Gravity and the Levity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 44:08

No Ubers in Stubbsville Welcome to part two of our discussion of Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, in which we coin a term for a new mashup genre, discuss our least favorite movies to remake, talk about so many sexy statistics, and about the Hughesian properties of this movie, which are very Hughesian indeed. Planes, Trains […]

Cumberbatch and Streep at Nebraska Welcome to a remake of a remake, ladies and gentlemen.

The original episode lies in the secret vaults, locked up in a wooden […]

 Remakers Mark 49 Part 2 {Double Indemnity}: That Poor Dictationist | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 46:44

He says ‘baby’ so much! Now listen here…we’re going to talk about Double Indemnity again and you’re going to like it, see. Along the way, we fired up our weird dictaphones, and took a deep dive into Film Noir, both old and new (including some modern examples that we highly recommend…*coughBRICKcough*), and the goods and […]
