In our second week back, we remain a twosome as we dive into the 80’s extreme sports classic Gleaming The Cube. In the late 80’s and early 90’s extreme sports movies were all over, whether it was BMX in RAD or rollerblading in Airbourne these movies were hard to escape. But it took Christian Slater and Tony Hawk being involved to incorporate a murder investigation into a skateboarding movie. We still may not know exactly what Gleaming The Cube means after watching this movie, but we sure feel like we gleamed it really good. Brian Kelly’s (Slater) adopted brother is killed when he discovers that the shop he works in sends weapons to Vietnam instead of medication. To the police it looks like suicide, but Brian skates off to investigate the murder to discover the truth. This film is available in full on YouTube.
Next week on Episode 94 we finally commence the trifecta as DRC (Dan) makes his triumphant return to the podcast! Since it’s DRC’s epic return and Thanksgiving we have picked the Thanksgiving classic Blood Rage from 1983. Todd and Terry are twins. They are blonde, cute, bright and identical in every respect, with one exception. One of them is a murderer.
