While Living with the Future is obviously fond of looking forward, it’s a well known wisdom that we need to learn from the past. In this vein, but mainly because I wanted to have some fun with an old friend of mine, I’m proud to announce a new podcast show I’m co-producing that reviews films that first hit the screens a long time ago.
The idea is to see whether those old movies that we’re sure are underrated classics, really are as good as our memories tell us.
The show is called I Saw That Years Ago, and will be a weekly release clocking in at around the twenty minute mark. So if you fancy a wander down dodgy memory lane, and a few laughs along the way, then please add us to your podcast playlist, drop a review on iTunes, or pop along to our (rather basic at the moment) website – http://www.isawthatyearsago.com
To whet your appetite for fine aural pleasure here’s the first episode. Enjoy.
I Saw That Years Ago (Pilot Episode) – Altered States
Youtube may well be the home of the most cat videos in the history of mankind, but if you look deeper then you’ll find that there are actually a few free movies buried in the digital depths.
Here are a few worth your attention – well, if you’re something of a Sci-Fi fan.
Chrysalis – Futuristic cop thriller in a future where humankind is on the brink of extinction.
Saturn 3 – Huge robot goes crazy thanks to Harvey Keitel oggling Farah Fawcett in the shower.
Outland – Sean Connery remakes High Noon in space.
Split Second – Rutger Hauer and Kim Cattrall fight a killer creature in a sunken London.
The Running Man – Arnie does The Hunger Games back in the 80s.
The Lawnmower Man – Pierce Brosnan in this computer thriller that had great graphics at the time, but hasn’t aged particularly well. Fahey’s hair is wonderful though.
Well, that’s just a few to whet your appetite. Are there any others you’ve found that you think should be on the list? Let me know in the comments below.
