This week on Part-Time Characters we face our biggest fears, whether it’s watching a horror movie from our childhood or talking face to face with Jerry-Garry-Larry. The gang gets together to discuss the remake of IT, adapted from Stephen King’s novel. We bring in a special guest to review the film and compare it to the classic TV movie from 1990 starring the one and only Tim Curry.
We also bring back Lightning Round for our first segment. This time Sam calls the shots and fires a question we didn’t prepare for: What is your favorite movie monologue? Let’s just say we couldn’t pick just one.
Later on, we also discuss horror movie remakes and why it appears to be more acceptable to remake or reboot movies from this genre than any other. Are we missing out on good horror originals because of this? What makes a good horror remake?
Quick announcement: We were thinking about starting a new type of episode where we focus on just one movie for 45 minutes and talk about it in depth. We are still brainstorming which movies would be great to talk about for a long period of time. If you like this idea, leave us some movie suggestions in the comments. Next week we will create a poll for you to vote on the movie you’d like to hear us talk about.
Let us know your thoughts in the comments and Sam will read them next week. You can also send us your thoughts to our email parttimecharacters[at]gmail[dot]com. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook so you can send us direct messages and get podcast updates.
