There Can Be Only One – The Podcast 67: “Altitude”

[Explicit language]

TCBOO-Podcast-logoTwo movies titled Altitude enter, only one will leave (with that title) as Herman “OmegaPrime” Davis, Mike “Regular Name” Honore, Sara Bostwick, and Robert Rau watch Denise Richards battle Dolph Lundgren — and rowdy teenage kids get swallowed up by a Cthulhu monster — to see which should be called Altitude.

Dolph Lundgren is no stranger to this podcast. His choices in movies are contrary to maintaining his sexiness. However, this is Denise Richards’ first entry, and she plays a no-nonsense cop trying to take a vacation when all of a sudden … terrorists. Is there plenty of exposition to lull the audience into a coma? You bet there is. Plus, it takes place on a plane, and they are pretty high, giving it some cred for the title.

The second movie features some teens looking to go to a concert and party. So they let one of their friends fly them there because kids are stupid. Along the way, a monster with tentacles tries to eat the ship while the kids do their best to be jerks to the pilot. If you judge both of these movies on height, the second film looks like they tried to go higher, but it’s weird they don’t try for a more clever monster pun.

Do either of these films have enough to keep their title, or will they face the wrath of our discerning panel? Listen if you dare.
