TGB Episode 74: The 80's All Over Again (Guest: Dan Trachtenberg)

August 17, 2011

The Golden Briefcase - The Last Starfighter

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Dan Trachtenberg from the Totally Rad Show to go over their Picks of the Week, the newest DVD/Blu-Ray releases, talk about new trailers for A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas 3D and Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, plus rant about set photo leak reactions and more. The main topic of the night was a discussion of remaking films from the 80's in honor Fright Night and Conan the Barbarian hitting theaters this weekend. The guys go over some of the best and worst of the bunch and pontificate about what movies might work as remakes.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
