If you get a chance please make sure to review, rate and share. You are awesome!

Mark and Niall discuss the 1993 action film Last Action Hero. Directed by John McTiernan, and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charles Dance and Austin O’Brien, this incredibly expensive meta-action film tells the story of what happens when a kid is magically sucked into a fictional action movie that is full of explosions, clichés, and one-liners. In this episode, they discuss the gigantic production, script rewrites, and why it’s a cult classic. Enjoy!

If 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 episode!

    So interesting how you suggest that the meta-ism may have gone over the heads of the younger audiences at the time of its release (when I was 12). That certainly was the case for me. I never cared for it until I saw it again (like 20 years later) in my 30s! Now I ADORE the film!
