There Can Be Only One – The Podcast 97: “Rampage”

[Explicit language]

TCBOO-Podcast-logoTwo movies titled Rampage enter, only one will leave (with that title) as Herman “OmegaPrime” Davis and Robert Rau watch The Rock be the fourth largest thing in a movie — and director Uwe Boll pitch a fit about not being special — to determine which should be called Rampage.

Thanks to Uwe Boll getting angry and threatening to sue Warner Brothers, Herman and Rob got themselves a topic and an excuse to see the new Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson movie. This flick, currently in theaters, stars Johnson as an enormous guy that loves animals, and they like him, too, until they get huge. Uwe doesn’t have much of a case to be angry at the studio or its star because they probably haven’t heard of the 2009 movie, plus it’s a game adaptation that no one should feel threatened by.

But controversy is the norm for Uwe, as are bad movies, but the 2009 same title-er isn’t that bad. You have a kid who just needs to blow off some steam by blowing up a town, as kids do. Once again, Amazon is cool with confusing customers by making this available on Prime, so check it out if you’re lazy and don’t read the description.

This one won’t be a toughie, but is either movie good enough to call itself Rampage? Listen if you dare.
