Needless Things Podcast 301 – Red Dawn Needless Commentary

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-hhbsd-d0c79d

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

It’s January, which means it’s time for a fresh new year and a look at another Patrick Swayze film!

The looming threat of Communism was ever-present in 1984. Back then Americans didn’t go a day without thinking about the menace of the Soviet Union and the possibility of World War III breaking out literally at any minute. It was a time of great paranoia and greater patriotism. “America the Free” seemed like a powerful yet fragile concept that could be tested to the breaking point by our enemies across the ocean without warning.

Master filmmaker John Milius zeroed in on this national temperament with the classic action/drama Red Dawn. The Movie stars Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey, Powers Boothe, Harry Dean Stanton, and Charlie Sheen in his first role.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, a returning Rad Ranger, and special guest Mike Gordon cheer on the Wolverines on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

Fans have been hearing about the possibility of live action Star Wars television shows for decades. In November of 2019, as part of the launch of Disney’s new streaming service, we finally got one. While not on a network or even cable, The Mandalorian, is a weekly episodic series that eschews the saga of the Skywalkers and examines life in a galaxy far, far away from a different perspective.

Listen in as Dave and the Execute Chapter 66 crew (minus Beth, who was recovering from a fight with a mudhorn) discuss the premiere season of The Mandalorian on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

Needless Things Podcast 295 – May the Toys Be With You

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-jz5zb-ca4198

Dave and Head of Research Ryan Schweck dive into everything that’s happened in the world of Star Wars toys since Triple Force Friday, as well as sharing some thoughts on The Mandalorian!

October 4th, 2019 was the launch date for the newest barrage of Star Wars merchandise, only this time Disney was tying their products into not just one, not two, but three new media projects.
The first, obviously, was December 20th’s Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. This is the latest cinematic Star Wars release and the conclusion of the so-called “Skywalker Saga” that began with Star Wars in 1977.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a new video game from publisher Electronic Arts. It was released on November 15th, 2019 and so far has seen a positive reception.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, after decades of speculation and false starts, the first-ever live action Star Wars show debuted on the Disney+ streaming service on November 12th.
Each of these landmarks in the era of Disney Star Wars has waves of merchandise currently available. Starting with the main rollout in October and followed by seemingly weekly additions by way of exclusives and new reveals, Hasbro, Funko, and many other manufacturers have flooded the market with new and exciting products.
PLUS! A very special Christmas memory from Dave’s Mom!
Listen in as Ryan and Dave take a close look at the last two months of Star Wars on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-b3m4a-c3b414

Welcome to the spooky season on the Needless Things Podcast!

On this week’s episode, Dave welcomes horror aficionado and host of the Seeking Human Victims podcast, Reverend Dan Wilson!
Dan returns to the show to discuss a very special topic – Jason Voorhees! More specifically, toys and action figures that have been based on Jason over the years. As one of the most toyetic slashers in film history thanks to his large stature and immediately recognizable hockey mask, Jason has been adapted in plastic many times over the years.
Listen in as Dave and the Rev look back through history at all of the tiny – and some not-so-tiny – Jasons that have stalked our shelves!
