On our big 500th episode we decided to go back in time with the 1st draft script of The Last Action Hero. on one of our Unproduced Scripts segments. Unproduced as in, the version before Arnold Schwarzenegger was even attached. This script came out in 1991 by Zak Pakk and Adam Leff also before Shane Black came in to put his groove on the storyline. Now we love the Arnie 1993 take we got best but this original draft is a very interesting, alternative take on the whole concept. Which to me, Last Action Hero has the best concept of any story out there. I mean, who would not want to go into their favorite movie, tv show, cartoon, video game, and so on now? 

This script keeps the core concept of Danny getting sucked into an action flick but beyond that it starts going in different paths, with alternate type characters, locations, and leading into a completely different 3rd act where the story goes almost twilight zone like. Plus there's material in here that would be tough for any studio to get behind and not feel a responsibility problem in the near future. Playing out almost like it was a PG-13 Roger Corman or Tromaville film. Very interesting stuff here.

So come on by and join us for the good times as we go through the entire script. Relive a classic in a different stroke. Last Action Hero was a action flick way ahead of it's time, easily lost over by Jurassic Park at the time but finding it's audience in the Danny aged target demographic. And funny enough, nowadays you see knock offs of this style. Other great flicks like Forbidden Kingdom, Ready Player One and even Tropic Thunder. And LAH is never a bad concept to knock off now too.

We are talking all about the brand new DCU animated feature of Justice Society World War 2 on the podcast. This film is fantastic and may be top 10 material of all the DCU pictures released. Multiple twists and turns that took us by surprise, action packed, a fantastic roster of characters, and brings back the good ole Superman quote of "Truth, Justice and the American Way!"

Beyond just the amazing war film, that shifts gears at each new act keeping the whole pace fresh and alive. We also get another amazing DCU short of Kamandi - The Last Boy on Earth. Beyond awesome and just adds to the value of owning the physical copy of the movie. And to top it all off we get the sneak peak at the next film, Batman The Long Halloween Part 1. One of those comic book stories that we have been looking forward to seeing in animated form since the early days of these DCU pictures.
