Subject:CINEMA #118 – “Into The Sunn….Classic Pictures!”

TC and Kim take on the schlocky, take-themselves-too-seriously films of the studio which brought you "The Life And Times Of Grizzly Adams" and "Hangar 18" and more!

Plus, this week’s HUGE E-mail segment, the latest news on the Callback, a great Bonehead Of the Week, coverage of the opener in 2008’s edition of the AST Dew Action Sports Tour, and a look at this year’s AFI list, the Ten Top Ten!



Next Week – it’s the list that a ton of movie fandom sites around the world have been keeping an eye on, because our track record has been pretty damn good, and we’re out to do it again…it’s the third annual edition of "To Rise And Fall In L.A.", as PNR names it’s Top 20 Rising Stars for 2008!  DON’TCHA DARE MISS IT!!!

OTHER NOTES:

I searched and searched but could not find clips of the 70s TV commercials for the games mentioned in segment three, "The Sinking Of The Titanic" and "The Bermuda Triangle". However, I DID find links to information on both games, courtesy of BoardGameGeek and the excellent site over there!

The Sinking Of The Titanic

I was mostly correct in thinking they were both Milton-Bradley games. MB distributed "Titanic" after Ideal was bought out by MB in the late 70s. Neither game is still on the market (duh!) and they fetch average prices on EBay – "Bermuda Triangle" runs anywhere from $15-$30 depending on the condition, while "Sinking Of The Titanic" nets considerably more, running $25 to $100 depending on the seller. Wow!

If anyone can find clips of the commericals from these games, let me know, and i’ll post them later!

Next week, as I said above, it’s the third annual "To Rise And Fall In L.A." Rising Stars list, all new for 2008! DONT’CHA DARE MISS IT!
