98: Red Green's Duct Tape Forever (2005) with Rach Shelkey
Whooo boy. Of all the movies we thought we'd cover we didn't think we'd get to The Red Green Movie: Duct Tape Forever from 2002. We were charmed by this low-budget comedy, as well as by the podcaster and gamer who brought it to us, Rach Shelkey. Rach does a great job explaining the appeal of this ridiculously long-running TV series based film, and we explore the role of women in the Red Green world, the redemption of Harold, the approaches to adapting a show to the big screen, and the impressive technological savvy of Steve Smith.
We had a tough time finding this one, but your local library probably has a copy, or you can check it out on DVD.
This week's end credit music is Strauss' The Blue Danube. Because it's public domain for the win!
