Ep318: Crowbocop

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie seek digital justice with their look at writer/director Leigh Whannell's new ultra-violent black-comedy techno-thriller, Upgrade! What happens when a Luddite auto mechanic loses his wife and the use of his limbs in a tragic car accident--only to be given the chance to enact revenge against the criminal conspiracy behind said accident, thanks to an ass-kicking cybernetic enhancement? Well, you get one of the summer's weirdest, darkest, would-be blockbusters, and a film that Ian and David struggle to agree on.

Speaking of enhancements, you'll also get to hear Ian's interview with Whannell about Upgrade's origins, themes, and budget-stretching special effects magic!

Lastly, Ian talks about another techno-fueled action film, 1989's Cyborg--which is now available in an extras-packed Special Edition Blu-ray from Shout! Factory. Have the years been kind to this Jean-Claude Van Damme futuristic-wasteland flick? Or is the new Shout! edition more special than the movie itself?

Episode 318 says, "Snitches get glitches!"
