Paul here and I wanted to thank all of the loyal listeners of The World’s Best Podcast for so being patient with me. As you may know, I like to get a new podcast episode every Monday (sometimes Tuesday), but my Summer Movie Season film reviews have thrown off my episode release schedule a little. However, we’re back on track now with, not one, not two, but THREE podcasts dropping this week. Beginning with this episode here, in honor of the 4th of JULY…
Roland Emmerich’s INDEPENDENCE DAY is a classic of the 90’s sci-fi/action films. The trailers were fantastic. The cast was great. I was still a kid when the movie premiered in 1996 and I could not wait for the movie to come out. When I finally saw the film, I loved it and through the years it’s become one of those movies that I revisit every summer around July.
In my opinion the film holds up well. In fact, I recently made a list of my top 100 favorite movies of all time and Independence Day easily made the list. To clarify this wasn’t a list of the 100 BEST movies of all time, but my personal FAVORITES.
It’s basically an unofficial modern day retelling of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds and it’s so much better than Spielberg’s abysmal crack at adapting that story. Anyway, you can listen here or subscribe on Stitcher and iTunes:
Thanks for listening!
Check out the latest episode of The World’s Best Podcast where I give a SPOILER filled review of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom! I had to brave the dangerous jungles of Isla Nublar to give you this review, so you better fucking appreciate it! Otherwise, please enjoys my take on the highs and lows of the latest entry in the Jurassic Park franchise.
During the Podcast, I mentioned a video I saw on YouTube from a guy named Patrick H. Willems, who made a fantastic video about why he believes none of the Jurassic Park sequels work. I don’t agree with everything he says in this video, I must admit I really like Jurassic World (the 1st Jurassic World from 2015). He makes some very insightful observations about the Jurassic Park franchise and why he feels the series doesn’t work beyond the very first movie. He makes excellent videos like this all the time and if you like World’s Best Media, you’ll probably enjoy his great YouTube channel: Patrick (H) Willems . The video is embedded on this page, below the links to my podcast. Listen here or subscribe on Stitcher and iTunes:
As always, thanks for listening and reading!
Thank you so much for all the positive feedback I got from the Trailer Commentary video I did for Solo: A Star Wars Story. I wanted to do more of these Trailer Commentaries because I had so much fun doing the first one! So the latest trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was perfect. This is definitely one of my most anticipated movies of the summer, so I hope you enjoy this video. I think I’m improving with each new one, so this should be… watchable! It certainly isn’t a train wreck, no sir! Well… maybe… DAMMIT YOU BE THE JUDGE!
It’s Paul here and I should have had this up yesterday, but better late than never! Here’s Part 2 of The World’s Best Podcast with Paul & Tim 2018 Movie Preview! Of course finishing out the episode with me until Tim makes his triumphant return, is super guest co-host Ryan McDonald! In Part 2 we start smack in the middle of the summer movie season and then finish out the rest of the year. It’s a great Episode and I hope you all enjoy it. Listen here or subscribe on iTunes:
