Episode 17: The Fugitive Mosquito Coast

Harrison Ford Films!

Faults in the Vaults with a Harrison Ford double bill. We're setting up roadblocks and bringing in the U.S. Marshals to take down Andrew Davis' big screen adaptation of The Fugitive (1993), then we're packing up and heading South to raise up Peter Weir's adventure drama, The Mosquito Coast (1986).

Mitch cracks open The Mailbag to respond to an intriguing business proposal. Josh once again delivers a Digging Up The Docs, to present Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, the feature length documentary adaptation about the rise of The New Hollywood, from the bestselling book by Peter Biskind.

In The Soapbox Rant, the guys shoot down the negative reactions toward the age old tradition that is -- the Hollywood remake. For Slipping Through the Tracks, Mitch rises to the occasion and submits an under-praised score by Ashe & Spencer from the little seen supernatural-tinged drama, Stay (2005).

Finally, in Total Recast, the guys give Harrison Ford a chance to showcase his acting range as they are tasked with inserting him into classic dramatic films in order to ponder some What If... casting alternatives that could have rewritten cinema history!
