Mat and Thrasher discuss The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. Jack Frost (Martin Short) tricks Santa Clause (Tim Allen) through a loophole known as the Escape Clause. The plot takes too long to get going despite a game Martin Short playing the villain.

Mat marvels at all the Spider-Man franchise ideas leaked from Sony Pictures' unfortunate hack. One thing's for sure, the next Spidey flick needs something fresh to attract more interest the next time around. May we suggest no more origin stories or retreads of what was already covered in the Sam Raimi flicks? 

Mat likes the PBS documentary American Masters: Mel Brooks: Make A Noise for its comprehensive look at the life of a master comedic filmmaker. The HBO documentary Six By Sondheim is less impressive for its scattershot look at a man's tremendous career with weird music videos overtaking the more interesting vintage Broadway rehearsal footage.

Mat wonders how they Joseph Gordon-Levitt can make Sandman into a movie. Thrasher explains who the different characters announced for the massive Suicide Squad cast are.  Both wish the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would have had a stinger feature Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, and Han.

Mat, Thrasher, and special guest Ryan Hoss (Founder/Webmaster for the Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive) discuss Saw 3D (later released on DVD and Blu-Ray as Saw VII: The Final Chapter) in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. Cary Elwes (Liar Liar) returns as Dr. Gordon for the most recent installment of the series so far. Get past episodes of the podcast at sequelcast.com

Mat wonders if going back to yet another younger cast set in the 1980s for X-Men: Apolcalypse is a good idea. Ryan praises the concept for Creed, an upcoming Rocky spin-off with Sylvester Stallone reprising his role of Rocky in a mentor role. Mat thinks the potential title of Rambo: Last Blood for a fifth Rambo movie is hilarious. Thrasher is hopeful for Chris Pratt circling the lead in Cowboy Ninja Viking

Ryan recently watched Scream 4 (pretty good) and Dumb and Dumber To (lots of nostalgia for the original revisited). Mat's been impressed with the high production value of Constantine. Ryan also gives his thoughts on Max Landis' early screenplay for a live-action take on Super Mario World. There be Wario, hard drinkin', and surrealism afoot.

Mat and Thrasher discuss Saw V in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. The plot jerks between interesting flashbacks involving Jigsaw grooming his mentor and a main story that's a better take on Saw II's structure. The acting is stiff, and so are the corpses! Get past episodes of the Sequelcast at sequelcast.com.

Thrasher lends his comic book expertise to Marvel's whopper of an announcement for Phase III of their official film lineup. He also geeks out about Shout! Factory's upcoming MST3K Turkey Day Collection DVD release coming out just in time for Thanksgiving. Mat liked the Green Goblin portions of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Mat and Thrasher discuss Saw IV in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. Darren Lynn Bousman (Repo! The Genetic Opera) directs the last of his trifecta of Saw films. More cribbing from the past filcks continues. The twist is temporal like in Saw II, the passive hero wanders through trap rooms like in Saw III, and someone wakes up in a bathtub like in Saw. One of the more hated films of the series, and with good reason. Get past episodes of the Sequelcast at sequelcast.com
