The Dogcast: The Pat Walsh Show – June 3rd, 2012!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another episode of The Pat Walsh Show! This week we talk about some streaming films in between the big blockbuster summer films. The big talking point is about sequels that are better than the original film. It comes from continued conversations about the excellent “Top Gun: Maverick” which is on target to be the biggest hit of Tom Cruise’s legendary career. So if you missed the show last week, catch up on my appearance with Pat here and enjoy! So Sayeth The Kendog!

Dog’s Movie House: “Top Gun: Maverick” Rousing Sequel 36 Years In The Making!”

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the long-delayed sequel to the 1986 classic piece of cinematic machismo, “Top Gun.” This one’s called “Top Gun: Maverick” and, despite the Covid-19 delays and restrictive filming conditions, I’m happy to say that “Maverick” not only honors its predecessor; it surpasses it in terms of sheer thrills and cinematic craftsmanship. At the forefront is the ageless (well, almost) Tom Cruise, slipping into the character of Pete “Maverick” Mitchell like a comfortable pair of old slippers. He and director Joseph Kosinski have made a rousing, old-school Hollywood blockbuster that is guaranteed to have audiences cheering, clapping, and laughing in their seats.

Dog’s Movie House: “The Mummy” Not Enough Boo For The Buck!



Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!


Tom Cruise is all “Tom Cruisy” in “The Mummy”



The term “shared cinematic universe” is going to become very unpopular very quickly.  Marvel Studios started this trend with their comic book movies, a strategy that makes sense because comics are often serialized stories that combine individual heroes and villains into various super teams to tell larger, interconnected stories.  DC and Warner Brothers are doing the same thing, if not with the same amount of success.  But now everyone is jumping on the damned bandwagon.  Godzilla is getting his own shared Monsterverse, and now, Universal is creating its own “Dark Universe” repackaging the classic Universal monsters of the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s to create some sort of monster “super team.”  The Tom Cruise vehicle, “The Mummy” was supposed to kick things off and it does. . .right off a cliff!
