This time on Talkin' Bout My Generation, Doug Abel and Mike Blanchard are invaded!!

Yes, Nicole Hale, aka BeatlesDiva, decided to drop in for this podcast as we discuss two movies that are 20 years old - Mars Attacks and Space Jam!

In Part 1 of this double feature, we discuss the 1950's era throwback film, Mars Attacks. An ensemble film, this movie had kind of a who's who of famous people - Annette Bening, Jim Brown, Michael J. Fox, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jack Nicholson, and even Tom Jones (because I'm assuming Wayne Newton wanted no part of this film). Mike and Nicole dish on this film as one of their favorites - Doug, however? "Not one of my favorites, and if I don't watch it again? No loss."


For the second half, however we move into a movie that has stood a better test of time: Space Jam.

This film chronicled Michael Jordan's retirement to play baseball, and return to basketball - oddly, the decision had nothing to do with him playing poorly on the Chicago White Sox farm team, the Dragons, but rather, due to the assistance of a bunch of Loony characters trying to avoid being kidnapped and put on display at Moron Mountain.

(Anyone who lives in Southern California and knows about Six Flags Magic Mountain? You probably already know they were sucked up into "Moron Mountain" and put onto display there!)

So join Doug Abel, Mike Blanchard, and Nicole Hale for episode 006 of Talkin' Bout My Generation as we discuss Mars Attacks Space Jam!
