Cinema Chance Cube, Episode 37: RUNAWAY

Gene Simmons is a Kaiju

The Cinema Chance Cube returns! Well, not really. We were never really gone, but we’ve been behind on sharing these episodes on Lewton Bus itself. If you only follow the show through this site, your cup runneth over! See the embeds below.

In this episode, the boys discuss Michael Crichton‘s 1984 science fiction thriller, Runaway. Starring Tom Selleck, Tom Selleck’s mustache, and Gene Simmons, this movie is a blast. It features a Roomba with a handgun. How can you go wrong? We also have a surprise quiz near the end that is surprisingly hard. Don’t worry if you don’t do well. I know we basically shat the bed.

Listen in!

The other choices that Fate rejected were the 1987 Rutger Hauer action vehicle Wanted: Dead or Alive, the 1995 Kaiju classic Gamera: Guardian of the Universeanother Kaiju classic, 2001’s Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, the 1971 feature film debut of forgotten b-movie hack Steven Spielberg, Duel, and the 1968 original Planet of the Apes, which features a planet with apes on it.

All of those films would have been great choices, but I’m very happy with what we got. This is a fun episode.
