The Extended Play Movie Podcast has had many themes over the course of the last six months. Now, they kick off with some of their favorite holiday movies. Steven and Patrick consider themselves a Lethal Weapon, especially because they have been teasing this movie for so long. It is considered a holiday movie, not because it takes place at Christmas. The Christmas theme is worked into the script, scoring and production design.
Lethal Weapon is one of those films, that started off the career of Shane Black, which works itself into your holiday screening. Richard Donner tries to make the dark script not so dark, which you can see in later installments lighten its tone. Join us as we kick off our holiday viewing suggestions. Join them next week, when they discuss National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
