In this VAULT-CAST, Jordan and "Silent" Steve decided to tackle the forefathers of modern horror and monster movies: THE UNIVERSAL MONSTERS!
We discuss our love of the characters and the films, and ponder why they remain so popular and timeless after all these decades. Then we shift gears from Universal's stable of movie monsters, to Fred Dekker's THE MONSTER SQUAD. This classic '80s flick is a love letter to the classic Universal Monsters, and features a strong cast, great script, and great makeup f/x from the late Stan Winston.
Finally we do another "Cultural Movie Exchange:" Steve had to watch BEST WORST MOVIE and Jordan had to watch LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.
In this podcast, Jordan and the ironically named "Silent" Steve march into the forbidden zone and discuss PLANET OF THE APES. We talk about the original films, briefly touch upon the Tim Burton remake debacle, and the decent 2011 reboot, then sing praises for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. (Easily one of the best films of 2014!)
After that, we unveil our first ever CULTURAL MOVIE EXCHANGE where we share (or inflict) films on one another that we haven't seen before! In our first round, I had to watch the dark, joyless, and utterly depressing THE ROAD, while Steve had to suffer through a quirky obscurity called MONSTER DOG! (Featuring Alice Cooper in the lead role!)
To cap things off, we discussed many of the news and rumors from San Diego Comic Con and look towards 2015, which will hopefully be an amazing year for all of us nerds!
Thanks for listening!
In this episode, Jordan and "Silent Steve" discuss Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION! It's loud, dumb, too long, and way too convoluted! But it also has DINOBOTS! Did Jordan enjoy it? Will he convince Steve to see it? Hit play and find out for yourself!

We're gonna need a bigger podcast...
Recorded back on June 20th, this episode of the VAULT-CAST celebrates the 39th Anniversary of Steven Spielberg's JAWS. We kick things off with some news about Disney's upcoming 7th Star Wars film, Max Landis' idea for a Ghostbusters 3 intro, and the Shredder design for the upcoming TMNT film. (Lotsa old news!)
Then we dive in and praise JAWS, which is arguably one of the best films ever made. We discuss its themes, share some trivia, and wax nostalgic about our personal experiences with the film.
Finally, we round out this restrospective podcast by taking a brief look at the JAWS sequels, and many of the films inspired by Spielberg's landmark film. (e.g. Alligator, Piranha, Grizzly, etc.)
