Is there anything more polarizing than when a Hollywood studio announces they're remaking an old classic? What about a movie that was terrible to begin with? Nothing New Under the Sun is a podcast about those honorable and horrible remakes.

Ah it's spooky season again here on NNUTS. Have you ever thought to yourself, "Wow, this Tilda Swinton movie is great, but I wish she played two roles, no, three roles, and I wish that she created a false identity in real life with his own IMDB and entirely separate movie posters to cast as one of those roles"? If you have, you are probably gravely mentally ill, and these movies will be right up your alley! Wow this is some freaky stuff, I'm not kiddin' man, it's NSFT. Not safe for treadmill.

The critics are really buzzing about this one. Candyman is a horror franchise that hooks you from the beginning and is equally concerned with providing scares as it is with having something smart and charming to say - something we've come to find is synonymous with Jordan Peele's excellent modern work. Here we pay tribute to horror icon Tony Todd and do our best to even be kind to the forgotten sequels, even if they are b(ee) movies. So what I'm trying to say is, if you don't like this one, go take a good long look in the mirror.Media covered:Candyman (1992)Candyman (2021)URL:http://www.nnuts.showInstagram:https://www.instagram.com/nnuts.showSupport:http://nnuts.moneyAudio credit:"intro 2" by nalaliongirl on FreeSound.org"The Candy Man" by Sammy Davis Jr.Universal Music Group20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection: Best Of Sammy Davis Jr.℗ 1972 Universal Records, a Division of UMG Recordings, Inc.Associated  Performer, Chorus: The Mike Curb CongregationProducer: Mike CurbProducer: Don CostaAssociated  Performer, Vocals: Sammy Davis Jr.Composer  Lyricist: Leslie BricusseComposer  Lyricist: Anthony NewleySupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/nothingnewunderthesun?fan_landing=true)

So that's it? What, we're some kinda... Suicide Squad podcast? From Jared Leto's insane backstage antics to Silvester Stallone voicing an insatiable bipedal shark, here we celebrate just how good it feels to be bad. Despite being perhaps the least surprising takes we will ever give on the quality of the make/remake, there's a lot to unpack in a franchise with such huge (and we mean huge) stars. Even if it sometimes feels like we Weasel our way out of giving these things a fair shot, we actually cherish quality content with all our hearts - we just don't care how many remakes we need to shame to get it.Media covered:Suicide Squad (2016)The Suicide Squad (2021)URL:http://www.nnuts.showInstagram:https://www.instagram.com/nnuts.showSupport:http://nnuts.moneyAudio credit:"intro 2" by nalaliongirl on FreeSound.orgSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/nothingnewunderthesun?fan_landing=true)

Come on and slam! Slam the new movie! And welcome to the jam! Just jam as many media properties as possible into the remake so the audience doesn't question the plot! There is always a sort of sadness when a beloved childhood film is revived only to be trotted out and trampled upon. With such high hopes for this loony adventure, would it be a stretch to say it's a slam dunk? Or can Warner Brothers take a swig of Michael's secret stuff and save this thing in the second half?

Our first episode covering new content for a franchise we've already covered before for its remake. Confused? It would be understandable if you're getting deja vu, but don't adjust your audio dial because those adorable spotted pups are back and this time they're horrifying. Watch Emma Stone chew the scenery in the prequel that gets you to sympathize with one of the most heinous villains of all time. Did you imagine when you saw her that she'd be the protagonist of a beautifully-shot fashion heist movie? Indeed, to see her is to take a sudden chill. It's Cruella - Cruella De Vil.48:30 - Skip straight to new Cruella content after the introMedia covered:One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)101 Dalmatians (1996)Cruella (2021)URL:http://www.nnuts.showInstagram:https://www.instagram.com/nnuts.showSupport:http://nnuts.moneyAudio credit:"intro 2" by nalaliongirl on FreeSound.orgSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/nothingnewunderthesun?fan_landing=true)

2021-06-0953:34

A cute little episode. An absolutely adorable, bloody, religiously-motivated, death-fearing tiny little episode about fuzzy bunnies. JRR Tolkien gets a lot of credit for world-building in Middle Earth but Richard Adams did it all with rabbits. This franchise is one part Lord of the Rings, one part The Walking Dead, one part FernGully, all parts deceptively cool. What happens when a piece of media is lauded for its groundbreaking animation style but the remake (even with an all-star voice cast) doesn't live up to that reputation?

2021-05-1201:34:30

Test your might! From humble beginnings in 90s arkades to international phenomenon, this franchise, including the worst-rated movie we've kovered so far, brings together the mightiest warriors from Earthrealm and Outworld to do battle in deadly, cheesy, bloody (toasty!) goodness. The krux of this discussion revolves around the kuestion of whether or not a movie requires a karacter to be an "audience analogue" - if not, how else kan we dump exposition before smashing all of our chess pieces together in glorious ultraviolence? If you're in your twenties or thirties, this might be a brutal lesson in the deceptive effect of rose-kolored glasses.

2021-05-0101:24:46

Truth, Justice, and the shortest time difference that we've covered so far on NNUTS between Make and Remake. But is it a remake? And wow, you talk about a franchise going off the rails. The hits just keep coming here. Can our beloved heroes roll with the punches? The DCEU is really a case study in how crucial editing is in turning out a polished product. Not necessarily the research, per se, going into the actual, you know, script, on the podcast episode, or movie, sorry, but the editing, that's really important, and posting it online, man, those people doing the editing, honestly, they're the real heroes, even if it's not totally delivered on time. What was I saying? Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman swimming in jeans.

23 - Godzilla vs Kong

2021-04-1401:03:41

It's got that big-fight feel! Finally, the culmination of our coverage of these colossal creatures. The great ape and the king lizard square off for the heavyweight title of the monster world on the grandest stage of them all. After dozens of movies where the directors and producers make the rookie mistake of assuming the audience cares about the human characters, we get to shovel handfuls of popcorn and settle in to witness some big meaty beasts slappin' meat. What could be better? But wait, what's that?

The third of our four-part arc about the Legendary Entertainment monster franchise brings us to the famous and infamous American Godzilla movies. What happens when you get a $100 million budget to make a giant lizard movie but decide it's not really what you're interested in making? What about when you cast Matthew Broderick but he's lost his Bueller-cool? Maybe the solution is to bring in the most talented television actor of the new millennium? No, let's kill him. What if we bring in some of the Stranger Things cast and all the old Toho studios Kaiju? Now we're cookin' with box-office gas.

The second part of our arc about the Legendary Entertainment monster franchise analyzes the origin of the King of monsters himself, Godzilla. The storied history of the leviathan lizard begins in post-WWII Japan and spawns countless sequels, each getting progressivey sillier. What do you do when you're not sure the audience is interested anymore in metaphors about the horrors of weapons of mass destruction but still want to put butts in seats? What do you do when just one giant monster attacking the world has become blasé? Well, apparently the answer is to throw some flying saucers in there, combine a dozen franchises and you're ready for a rubber suit Royal Rumble.Media covered:Godzilla (1954)Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964)Son of Godzilla (1967)Destroy All Monsters (1968)Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla (1974)URL:http://www.nnuts.showInstagram:https://www.instagram.com/nnuts.showSupport:http://nnuts.moneyAudio credit:"intro 2" by nalaliongirl on FreeSound.orgSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/nothingnewunderthesun?fan_landing=true)

Happy first birthday to us here at NNUTS! For this year's version of what we might call "Monster March", we bring you the first part of an arc about the new Legendary Entertainment monster franchise. From Kong to Godzilla, we'll be covering the history of these behemoth beasts as we prepare for them to square off on the silver screen once again. How tall is Kong? Does he love the damsel in distress? Just like we said about the Invisible Man one year ago, here we witness the portrayal of the monster evolve with the technology available through the years.

Akira Kurosawa's timeless masterpiece told, and retold, through generations in a game of plot interpretation telephone. It was a film so good it became a genre. And in this episode, much like for the warriors in these pyrrhic parables of peaceful populace protection, here too does alcohol fuel confidence. Does a movie have to be Great to be great? Does a podcast need to pronounce all the names correctly to be worth the listen? Is every modern action movie just a remake of Seven Samurai?

Cathy Lee Crosby. Lynda Carter. Gal Gadot. In a medium dominated by male heroes, male writers and male directors, we see the evolving portrayal of one of Earth's mightiest heroes from problematic origins to empowering icon.

"Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? Well, it is VERY cold in space." We welcome our long-time Trekkie pal Brian as our second-ever guest on NNUTS to discuss one of the Starship Enterprise's most illustrious villains: Khan. From William Shatner's unbelievable longevity, to Ricardo Montalban's suspiciously rippling pectorals, to the phenomenal cast of JJ Abrams' remakes, we deconstruct these contributions to Trek lore from the controversial to the contemporary.

The third and final episode of spooky season 2020, only a few weeks too late! Listen, there was a lot of material here. You'll see. And speaking of a third, this episode features our first guest on the show, our buddy John! 150% the editing, but three times the fun! I had to really dig in and get to feeling at home editing this one. NNUTS house is where I belong now. It's calling to me, the twisted, labyrinthian audio tracks like spiral staircases.
