Let’s party! Welcome to Episode 4 of “Reel Chat“, a brand new and exciting movies podcast devoted to the “Reel World as we know it”.
On this fourth Vintage Vault installment, host (and huge Schwarzenegger fan) Adam Stolfo is joined by a pumped up Brose Avard, Andrew McCaskill and Matthew O’Neill to look at one of the most satisfying guilty pleasures in the history of action cinema – 1985’s “Commando“.
As this is his episode of choice, Brose is in fine form here, showing plenty of love to a film he obviously holds in high regard. In what happens to be it’s 30th anniversary, we look in-depth at the film’s cast, it’s filmmakers, the film’s DVD and Blu-Ray release, it’s “manic” musical score (complete with steel drums and plenty of 80s saxophone), the questionable sexuality of “memorable villain” Bennett, as well as Brose’s run in with Aussie actor himself, Vernon Wells (who plays Bennett), at San Diego Comic-Con in 2009.
