Episode 48 of the Thinking Outside the Long Box Podcast comes to you from the Lair of DOOOM that is Gabe’s basement!!
The first part of this episode is dominated by all of the news that is coming out of New York Comic Con! This includes Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Agents of SHIELD (Ghostrider), and much much more!!
For our #PopCultureClassics segment, we talk about one of the most influential comedies ever made, Blazing Saddles. Obviously, with the sad passing of Gene Wilder, our conversation tends to skew towards him, and the awesome role he had as the Waco Kid!! But, we also talk about the awesome effect that Mel Brooks has had on the comedy industry!! If you haven’t seen this movie, you definitely are missing out, it’s a classic!
HOLY COW do we have an awesome interview for you listeners!! We interview Wes Robinson, who plays “Lane,” in the Lionsgate movie, Blair Witch! Wes is such a humble guy, and talks about how grateful he was to be a part of the Blair Witch franchise!! He tells the awesome story of him seeing the original The Blair Witch Project, movie, in the theaters, and finding out that the secret movie he was offered, was in fact, a Blair Witch sequel! He talks about 1 of the easter eggs in the movie, and teases us with the many more that are out there! If you have let people talk you out of seeing this movie, you definitely need to go!! There are so much more different elements to this sequel that make it seem different and fresh! Huge thanks to Wes for giving us this awesome interview, and letting us peek into the life of a horror genre fan!
