There Can Be Only One – The Podcast 15: “Gridlocked (k’d)”

[Explicit language]


TCBOO-Podcast-logoTwo movies titled Gridlocked(k’d) enter, only one will leave (with its title) as Herman Davis and Robert Rau watch Tupac Shakur’s breakthrough performance and the Canadian record-holder for most bullets on screen to determine which film should be called Gridlocked(k’d).

Because Herman has had to put up with Robert’s horrible choices for the past few weeks, this choice is all on “Omega Prime.” It did help the creators of the 2015 Gridlocked did a Reddit AMA, and Robert was able to get a question answered that pertained directly to this podcast (the answer may shock you … not really).

First up was the Tupac Shakur/Tim Roth oddity directed by a guy who used his newfound success to direct, erm, Glitter. While Gridlock’d loses focus, a lot, it is a very entertaining relic from the ’90s. The newer Gridlocked‘s biggest problem is the length. There’s no reason to make this a two-hour movie, especially with a very straightforward plot and a cast dominated by ex-wrestlers. Whose title will stay, and whose will have to go? Listen if you dare.
