Boy, we’re just cranking out bonus episodes of Someone Else’s Movie this summer, aren’t we? And today’s is short but especially sweet, with actor, musician, writer, director and producer Jemaine Clement zooming in from New Zealand to discuss the lasting personal impact of Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop.
We didn’t have much time, so this is less of a deep dive than a sprint — although somehow Jemaine also manages to get the Indiana Jones movies in there — but as with Paul Scheer’s episode on Bowfinger, when a guest is passionate enough about a movie you can cover a lot of ground pretty quickly.
And then feel free to catch up on my NOW reviews of HBO’s Lovecraft Country (terrific), Netflix’ Project Power (decent) and the new Russell Crowe thriller Unhinged (meh). And of course there’s our weekly review digest and VOD calendar.
Oh, and don’t miss the new episode of NOW What, in which I explore the world of competitive gaming with Marissa Roberto from TSN and John Lucas from Ecentralsports.com. I don’t think I disgraced myself, anyway.
