War Machine vs. War Horse: Risen (Misery vs. Big Fish)

On this episode we fulfill our side of the podcasting pain crossover challenge with our friends over at the True Bromance Film Podcast by creating an episode centered around the new release RISEN. In this story starring the soon to be screen version of Michael Jackson, a Roman soldier plays detective after the death of Jesus, but unless we wanted to get into really dicey waters that has felled such great artists as Martin Scorsese… we decided to go a different route and look at films that show creators bringing their creations back to life. In the Rob Reiner film adaptation of the Stephen King novel MISERY, James Caan plays a man who is forced by his #1 fan to bring back her favorite fictional character in a new novel. And then in the slightly more heartwarming Tim Burton film BIG FISH, a father and son attempt to connect with each other for perhaps the first time, by reliving the narrative of the father’s life in his dying days.
