Nerd Lunch Podcast 88: Listbuster 2.0

This week we finally take another crack at the Listbuster topic first heard back in Episode 17. In our crosshairs is IGN’s list of the Top 25 Action Movies and riding shotgun in the fourth chair is Jon Cross from the After Movie Diner and Dr. Action and The Kick Ass Kid podcast. After a healthy discussion about just what an action movie is, we tear IGN’s list to shreds and then reveal our top 10 action movie lists. In our Nerd To-Dos we get the lowdown on the Superman III novelization, a goal to chat with Steve Guttenberg, and a mini review of The Hobbit (hint: it’s a long movie).

Grab this episode from iTunes or listen here using the player below. And after your eargasm, be sure to let us know who put together the best Top 10 list in the comments.

    I've seen the first one, started the second one…and that's as far as I've gotten. However, I think I mentioned on the show that we are rectifying this soon. Plans are afoot to cover these movies in a very special episode.

    Thanks for listening!

    I'm shocked to hear there are Nerd Lunch members who have not seen the Mad Max trilogy. But honestly, the series is so engrained in pop culture, and so many films have taken cues from the series, seeing the original films might not feel that unique anymore. The game Fall Out and movies like Six String Samurai, Book of Eli, Escape From NY/LA all have elements of the lone man in a man destroyed world.
    BTW, Never read or watch The Road unless you wish to have your soul crushed with despair. It's set basically within the first several years of a disaster, where society hasn't really come back yet. I had to watch Adventure Time and I Love Lucy just so I could sleep without such a dismal feeling on my mind before bed.
