TGB Episode 146: Raimi The Great & Powerful (Guest: Steve Weintraub)

March 7, 2013

TGB - Sam Raimi

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim (sans Jeremy) is joined by Steve Weintraub of Collider to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest in DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for James Wan's The Conjuring and SXSW premiere Holy Ghost People and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on the career of fan-favorite filmmaker Sam Raimi, in honor of his new movie Oz: The Great and Powerful hitting theaters this weekend. The guys talk over the high and low points of Raimi's career, his techniques and style and where they would like to see him go with his movies in years to come.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~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.

I'm also a HUGE fan of Drag Me To Hell. Also, for the record, it wasn't a failure by any means. It had about a $30 million budget, and grossed over $90 million worldwide. Throw in all of the home market sales and etc...and it was definitely a hit. I'll sing it's praises until the end of time.

Army of Darkness is also my least favorite of the 3. Evil Dead 2 has such a brilliant sort of twilight zone twist ending...that leaving it there just feels so right. But Army of Darkness spins it into a more ridiculous direction that I'm not really a fan of. Bottom line, I think there is definitely a reason that it doesn't share the 'Evil Dead' moniker.
