Comments are always appreciated!
Johnny Zombie's Addendum: While a lot of research went into this episode, a lot of research has followed it. I accidentally found the fan edit of Richard Williams The Thief and The Cobbler: Recobbled on Google Video. I have included it here as an embedded file for your viewing pleasure. See for yourself why this film truly is a lost classic. I am remiss for not including a better synopsis of the film's plot in this episode, and didn't realize my mistake until post preduction. However, the first three minutes or so of the film set up it's premise. It is a fantastic tale set in the 1001 Arabian Nights era. However, please note that this was never intended as a children's film--discretion is advised.
A badass scene from INCEPTION!

This week, Johnny Zombie and Dillon discuss remakes, unmakes, and never-makes. We list the films we'd like to see remade, unmade, and never made. There is such a thing as a good remake, though it is hard to find. We give some examples of remakes gone right, and gone wrong. We also offer our thoughts on films that should never have existed in the first place. The episode is introduced by our new sponser Trader Zombies. We also discuss our recent revists to old sci-fi series and anime (more often then not, they coincide).
The discussion recorded for this episode is largely hypothetical. I invite all listeners to give examples of remakes--both good and bad. I also want to hear your thoughts on films that should never be.
As always, you can listen to the carnage here, or at Archive.org You can also download us from our gracious host at Archive.org (see link below the player).
Included as bonus material is an embed of the DUNE fan video that is mentioned in tonight's show. Plus, a link to Siloff's wonderful Steam Punk Star Wars figures.
