The #1 ranked podcast on Ranker’s “Best Movie Podcast” list is back! This week we’re talking about the underrated action spectacle The 13th Warrior, which has aged really well due to its practical effects and on-location shooting in the harshest terrains British Columbia could offer. The 13th Warrior is mostly known for the production troubles, massive budget ($180 million inflated) and underwhelming box office numbers that made it a financial disaster. Director John McTiernan (Predator, Die Hard) and writer/producer Michael Crichton had different visions for the film and it resulted in massive reshoots, copious editing and a final cut that both were unhappy with. However, we love the movie because of its massive battles, underappreciated performances, and breathtaking locations. If you love The 13th Warrior you will love this podcast.

Buliwyf is the best.

As always, we answer random questions and ponder how long it took Antonio Banderas to learn the Viking languageIf you are a fan of the podcast make sure to send in some random listener questions so we can do our best to not answer them correctly. We thank you for listening and hope you enjoy the pod!

    the guy that played Buliwyf was my go to when it came to discussing who should play who in the Avengers films. This was back in the 90’s. At least our call for Patrick Stewart came true.

      The Buliwyf guy was in Red Scorpion 2. Which means he “should” have been front kicked by Dolph Lundgren, had they both been in the movie.

    This is one of those movies that, upon mention, I say to myself “I really need to watch that again.” It’s been at least a decade. I REALLY need to watch that again now! haha
