Sneaky Dragon Episode 302

by David Dedrick on September 16, 2017

Hola, Sneakers! Welcome to our 302nd episode of Sneaky Dragon – the show we can’t be bothered to stop doing!

This week on the show, Ian and Dave ask a question; announce contest winners; do some sexy Chick Talk™: listen to Ian’s review of The Dark Tower; poo-poo cinematic universes; get offended by comic books ignorance; do their own James Bonding; get mad at Roger Moore; get nostalgic about Diamonds Are Forever; hack on Sixties film comedies; marvel at the empty world of the TV Avengers; empathize with the regular working folks of The Prisoner; ask for your money; hear Ian’s British murder mystery pitch; discover that ideas are easy; have a Dollop of Trollope; reveal Canada’s secret malls; suggest a terrifying prank; boost Amazon Prime; boost Netflix; plan a visit to Twin Peaks town; and, finally, declare Twin Peaks a success;

Thanks for listening.

Last week’s chicken-related horror movies contest winners were Louise Moon, Ken Painter, and Chris Roberts. Thanks for your hard work!

Here are Louise’s and Chris’ posters:

Our apologies to Marcus Harwell who contributed several fine suggestions on the message board after we had recorded the show on Wednesday.

‘Interesting’ – to quote someone or other – that you mentioned both MacArthur Park and Live and Let Die this week, as I’ve always thought the horn sections in these songs are spookily similar. Don’t know if McCartney ever acknowledged an influence there. A lot of folk seem to hate MacArthur Park, but I’m with Dave – it’s a fantastic song, apart from that truly horrible slow section in the middle. Even though it’s kind of preposterous, the line ‘I don’t think that I can take it’ somehow gets to me every time. Mind you, I also like the reggae bit in Live and Let Die, so what do I know?

On streaming, have you tried a Chromecast or Amazon Fire dongle? They just plug in the HDMI slot on your TV and let you view Netflix, YouTube etc, just as you were describing. I think you can only stream Amazon Prime on the Fire one. They both cost around £30 here in Scotland and are probably the same in dollars.

Buddy cop chicken movies? How about:
Coopland
Cock, stock and two smoking barrels
Starsky and Clutch
The French Hen Connection
Freebie and the Beak

My idea for a buddy cop chicken movie is a remake of the Wayans brothers’ 2004 comedy, White Chicks. Poster to follow.

We use a Chromecast device to wirelessly stream YouTube and other internet videos from a laptop or smartphone to our older HD TV. It costs about $45 CDN.
