Mat and Thrasher discuss Police Story 3: Super Cop in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. Jackie Chan stepped away from the director's chair for this flick. Director Stanley Tong (The Myth) gives a bigger sense of scope to the action. The most memorable character in the film is Jessica Yang, played by Michelle Yeoh (Babylon A.D.). She's just as limber as Jackie Chan in the many action scenes that pair the two together.  Check out past episodes of the Sequelcast at www.sequelcast.com

Mat expresses interest in Kevin Smith's upcoming True North Trilogy. All three are set in Canada and based off stories from his popular Smodcast podcast. The first film in the series, Tusk, comes out in September 19, 2014 in the United States. Thrasher gets interested at some of the casting in Jungle Book: Origins, a take on the classic Rudyard Kipling novel from director Andy Serkis. They also express admiration for the late Don Pardo. 

Mat and Thrasher voice their approval to the recent Guardians of the Galaxy film and speculate on what their appearance could be in the upcoming Avengers sequels.

Mat and special guest Paul Goebel discuss the career of Robin Williams in this episode of the Sequelcast Special podcast. Listen to Paul's podcasts here: Hey, Watch This! and Brief Interviews With The Opposite Sex. Thrasher and Jersey Jason also discuss Robin Williams' legacy. 

No film is left unturned in these two thoughtful conversations. Mat admires the little seen science-fiction thriller The Final Cut. Paul brings up a solo appearance of Robin Williams on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson that lasted for an entire episode. Thrasher notes how Robin Williams turned him onto the career of another comedy legend, Jonathan Winters. Jersey Jason shares his love of the scenes pairing Robin Williams and Harvey Fierstein in Mrs. Doubtfire. From the artistic flourishes in What Dreams May Come to the revolutionary monologues to the audience in Mork & Mindy, the work of Robin Williams will always be loved, and the man will never be forgotten.

Mat discusses Police Story 2 in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. After the wild success of Police Story, Jackie Chan directed a sequel with more explosions than you could shake a firecracker at. A strong emphasis on narrative makes for a more pedestrian police story this time around. Download past episodes of the Sequelcast at www.sequelcast.com

Mat gets excited at the news that a new Vampire Chronicles film franchise based off the series by Anne Rice might be on the horizon. He suggests casting Benedict Cumberbatch as Lestat and Liam Hemsworth as Louis. Ricky Gervais is set to do a feature film mockumentary spin-off of The Office featuring his David Brent character titled Life on the Road. Mat also recommends a documentary on character actors titled That Guy... Who Was In That Thing

Next week we'll be discussing Police Story 3: Supercop (released as just Supercop in the United States). Thrasher should be returning to the show next week.

Mat discusses Police Story in this episode of the Sequelcast podcast. Disgusted at the experience of making an American cop movie, Jackie Chan returned to Hong Kong to direct a cop movie his way with Police Story. Filled with stunts that destroy an entire village and a shopping mall, this is one of the best examples of a pure action film with just a dollop of narrative. Check out past episodes of the Sequelcast podcast at www.sequelcast.com! 

Mat admits he's never read a Dragonriders of Pern novel, but he just might give one a try with Warner Bros. trying to develop it as a massive film franchise. He also touches on Universal trying to remake The Mummy yet again. An animated film gets a live-action sequel with SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water, a decision Mat finds as mystifying as the animated series itself.

Mat gave The Battered Bastards of Baseball a watch and found himself enjoying this quirky sports documentary about the Portland Mavericks, an independent baseball team in Portland, Oregon in the 1970s owned by Bing Russell, Kurt Russell's father (!!). He also talks about the Karate episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit.

Thrasher enjoyed rewatching a good chunk of Justice League Unlimited and considers it a better animated series than Justice League. Both praise "Weird Al" Yankovic's latest album Mandatory Fun

Thrasher says Big Trouble In Little China still holds up with its Tsui Hark (Chinese Ghost Story).
