The Old Guard + Throw Down

Jul 22, 2020, 05:00 PM
A tale of two action movies on this week's Eclectica. On the one hand, you have the huge Netflix-funded star vehicle The Old Guard, starring Charlize Theron and Chiwetel Ejiofor. On the other, you have the smaller, foreign-language judo film Throw Down, directed by Johnnie To and released on Blu-Ray by Eureka Masters of Cinema.

Could the smaller, less formidable opponent possibly defeat the muscular big beast? If only there was some sort of metaphor from the field of judo to help us understand this conflict. Still, other than that, we've also got a fun Question of the Week about villains you want to recast. This podcast may not be suitable for Jesse Eisenberg.
