We were working in the lab late one night when our eyes beheld an eerie sight...it was a Twitter DM from Rock Talk to see if we wanted to record a crossover with them.  Spooky!

So this week, we’ll be covering Walking Tall - an early starring vehicle for The Rock and perhaps the worst film in the long career of Michael Bowen.  Don’t miss it.

And in the spirit of Halloween, our friends from the podcast “Rock Talk: A Guide to the Films of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson” will be covering a Hulk Hogan film - the venerable No Holds Barred.  So be sure to subscribe to their podcast and check out their take on this 1989 Hulk Hogan classic as well as any other Rock Talk episodes you’ve missed.

Last episode, we narrowly escaped a hammerhead upside our fishbrain noggins.  This week, we brave that danger once again to cover an early version of the No Holds Barred screenplay – a version written by Bronco Billy’s own Dennis Hackin.  And just like the theatrical version, these early scenes are a pulse-pounding thrill ride.  In fact, this week, we witness not one but two corporate strategy meetings (the third and fourth of the screenplay so far), a discussion of French antiques, the art of salary negotiation, and perhaps the most iconic scene of No Holds Barred.  And as always, in comparing this Dennis Hackin draft of the screenplay to the rewrite penned by Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon, we search for clues into the authorial method, the madness, or perhaps the overwhelming emptiness at the core of these two titans of sports entertainment.

How long would it take to cover a 93 minute movie about a sociopathic professional wrestler?   We thought the answer was 17 episodes when we wrapped up our film coverage in our last show, but as it turns out, the story of No Holds Barred is more, much more than its perfected theatrical form.  Particularly so when Hulk Hogan claims to have personally rewritten its screenplay in a small hotel room with Vince McMahon over what must have been a nightmarish 72 hours. 

So this week we continue our No Holds Barred coverage by diving into an early draft of the screenplay - one submitted by acclaimed novelist and screenwriter Dennis Hackin.  By comparing his version to the final film, we hope to gain insight into the authorial method and perhaps into the very souls of Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon.  Or maybe we’ll just talk about some dumb shit that’s in the screenplay and not the movie, or vice-versa.  You’ll have to tune in to find out. 

We also discuss Rob Zombie, impotence, Steve Jobs, Jerome Bettis, Hulk Hogan church attendance, and Limp Bizkit.  And most importantly, we make a long overdue apology to a former guest on the show.  Don’t miss it.
