On this week’s Scottscope podcast, we’ll be talking about the dynamic new time travel epic Looper. Does it raise the bar for time travel films? Is it one of the best science fiction films in years? Will it achieve the same level of cult status and/or popularity as Back to the Future and The Terminator? Is Bruce Willis the new elder statesman of 80’s action icons? How does his track record stack up to Stallone and Schwarzenegger’s? Will Ryan Johnson now become a fanboy favorite? Is the fall of 2012 shaping up to be better than the summer of 2012 as far as genre films are concerned?

The original Die Hard is arguably the greatest action film ever made. The second one was serviceable. The third was an insane yet entertaining riff on The French Connection. Together, these three movies formed a nice little trilogy. Unfortunately, the good folks at 20th Century Fox saw fit to supplement that trifecta with Live Free or Die Hard. Since that film did better than expected, A Good Day to Die Hard will be arriving on movie screens across America this Valentines Day.
Raphael Tanghal’s cover art for Mic Tyson is just plain awesome. There’s no other way to put it. The only thing that could possibly make it any better is to put it on the cover of a limited edition Sean Price comic. An even better idea would be to make it into a full length cartoon. While that may be asking for too much, Chain Gang Productions has cooked up a little something to whet the palette. They’ve turned the cover for Mic Tyson into a video for the track “STFU Part 2.”
