Baby money montage – it’s another James Spader Podcast, and this time we’re reeling in Baby Boom (1987) and possibly a MacArthur Grant. We might even accidentally play a promo for The Blacklist from Youtube as we stream trailers. For now though, get your deck of cards ready and prepare to rate Baby Boom.
It’s another episode of The James Spader Podcast, and this time Pretty in Pink is up. Join us as we talk about the prom, smoking in the halls, and instant messaging. Then decide for yourself if it is “nada” or something.
It’s time to dummy up and dummy down with 1987’s “Mannequin” and the latest installment of the James Spader Podcast. Mike Gray, Chris Onderick, and Erik Pepple revisit their nostalgia for shopping malls, debate the powers of market research, and dream of department store lock-ins.
It’s time for Season 2 of The James Spader Podcast, where we crash headfirst into “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” With a performance from James Spader as Ultron, accidents are bound to happen, cyber or otherwise, even guiltily so, as we take a gander at this modern day spectacle.
In the 7th and last cast of the first season of The James Spader Podcast, Mike Gray, Chris Onderick, and Erik Pepple turn to fan favorite Tuff Turf (1985), directed by Fritz Kiersch. In addition to discussions padlocks, great music, actors James Spader, Kim Richards, Robert Downey Jr., and musician Jim Carroll, the show features a special interview with the director, Kiersch himself.
In the 6th, and very belated, installment of The James Spader Podcast, hosts Mike Gray, Chris Onderick, and Erik Pepple delve into the funland that is Sean S. Cunningham’s 1985 film “The New Kids.” Written by Harry Crews (yes, the novelist) and Stephen Gyllenhaal (yes, father to Maggie and Jake) and featuring performances by Shannon Presby, Lori Loughlin, and James Spader, “The New Kids” stands as a flawed but entertaining film in Spader’s oeuvre.
In the 5th episode of The James Spader Podcast, hosts Mike Gray and Chris Onderick of Snow Arch Films and Erik Pepple with the Wexner Center for the Arts look at the made for TV movie “A Killer in the Family” (1983) directed by Richard T. Heffron. Based on the real life Tison gang’s crime spree of 1978, the film’s credits include performances from Robert Mitchum, Eric Stoltz and Stuart Margolin, as well as a teleplay by Sue Grafton.
In this episode of The James Spader Podcast, hosts Mike Gray and Chris Onderick of Snow Arch Films and Erik Pepple with the Wexner Center for the Arts, dive into “Starcrossed” (1985) directed by Jeffrey Bloom. The cast comes replete with excerpts from an exclusive interview with director and writer Jeffrey Bloom, as well as a discussion of a “Starcrossed” remix, and finally a rather long-winded tangential discussion about logo culture.
In the third episode of The James Spader Podcast, hosts Mike Gray and Chris Onderick of Snow Arch Films and Erik Pepple with the Wexner Center for the Arts tackle “Endless Love” (1981) directed by Franco Zeffirelli. In addition to James Spader, the film would feature performances from Brooke Shields, Martin Hewitt and serve as the screen debut for Tom Cruise. What will the verdict on the film be, and will the word “patriarch” be mentioned during the course of the discussion? Listen and find out!
In the second show of The James Spader Podcast, hosts Mike Gray and Chris Onderick of Snow Arch Films, and Erik Pepple with the Wexner Center for the Arts, examine Cocaine: One Man’s Seduction (1983) directed by Paul Wendkos and featuring performances from actors Dennis Weaver, Karen Grassle, Jeffrey Tambor and Pamela Bellwood. Special guests Joel Stigliano and Marissa Wolf also join the show and perform remixes of scenes from the movie in an attempt to discover if there is sympathy for Tambor, and whether or not this TV movie has it in spades.
