Gregg and Chris have John Green (the cartoonist, not the Fault in Our Stars guy) on to talk through Mission: Impossible, wherein John can’t help but rant over the plot, and we respond in turn…but not without interruptions to cover Metadent toothpaste, brief talk of U2, Mac Tonight and Herb the Nerd, other potential Tom-casts, the rule of gum in drama, and did someone mention The Fall Guy?

Cruisin’ Together: 17 – Interview with the Vampire


(Cruisin’ Together may contain grown-up language)

Chris and Gregg welcome Erica Henderson on board for a chat about the ins and outs of Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles.

Plus, a vampire trial, a vampire job interview, and of course, Tom Cruise!

Cruisin’ Together: 16 – The Firm


(Cruisin’ Together may contain grown-up language)

Gregg and Chris get Gregg’s Cousin Mike’s* brother, Cousin Joey, to get into the underbelly of The Firm. Joey brings his expertise to discuss the film’s accuracy…there’s a lot of discussion of Tom Cruise’s running, back-flipping and Spider-Manning…we agree on the greatness of Gene Hackman…plus Chris speaks to Wilfred Brimley’s scariness, Joey watches all of Quantum Leap, and Gregg channels Holly Hunter. That’s just the tip of the iceberg to a jam-packed show!

Following that, Chris and Rob reenact a key scene, we embark on an epic mega-Top Toms sandwich, talk Noah Wiley and Rocky Roadrunner cartoons, and then, Christopher Walkens show up. Plus, “Doin’ the Butt”.

Reilly on to have a chat about Far and Away, starting with the debut of the “Round Robin Plot Synopsis”, and taking the conversation far and away to things like: corkers and scrappers, true stories of stabbings, the hard truth about horse heads, and a real examination of merry-go-rounds vs. carousels.
