GO HOME IN A BOX - EPISODE 15 - "BURNIN' RUBBER: CAR CHASES IN FILM"

This week, Chris & Joel buckle up for a discussion of high-octane, high-speed chases in films. Starting out with the gritty police dramas of the 1960s-70s with Bullitt, The French Connection and The Seven Ups then on to stranger fare such as Death Race 2000 and The Road Warrior as the guys try to name-drop as many chase scenes as they can think of. Join in on the fun as they also run down the newest retro releases on dvd/blu-ray.

Check out why Go Home in a Box should be your podcast source for discussion of genre films from the VHS era.

GO HOME IN A BOX - EPISODE 14: "POST-APOCALYPTIC COPYCAT BLUES"

On this week's Go Home in a Box, Chris & Joel take a look at Mad Max and Escape from New York and discuss the influence these films had on the action/sci-fi subgenre known as the post-apocalyptic future. From the vast desert wastelands to the urban decay, filmmakers were especially fond of copying these two archetypes to varying levels of success. From films such as 1990: The Bronx Warriors to Dune Warriors, the guys hit on the more notable films that were influenced by greater post-apocalyptic visions. Plus, the week's new retro releases on dvd and blu-ray for July 11.
