Treatment 43 – Xanadu

What can we say about this week’s movie, except maybe: What. The. Fuck?!?!


This film is a bit hard to pin down. It’s certainly unlike any we’ve done so far. It’s not sci-fi, it’s not horror, it’s not sword and sorcery, it’s not chop sockey, and it’s not an action fest. It defies every genre label we have yet used! So, I guess we had to add “musical” and “fantasy” to the tag listings to help pin this one down. But also “cartoon” (part of it) and “roller skating!” Intrigued yet? How about tossing in Olivia Newton-John, Gene Kelly, and the Electric Light Orchestra?! SOLD!

SKATE… through a series of obscure references, as Matt explains every joke!!!

GLOW… with the joy of twelve year-old humor, as Kirk and Doug discuss Gene Kelly‘s years in the Navy!!!

SING… along with everyone, as they all (at least once) break into song at some point in this episode!!!

It’s all there, and so much more! There are shout outs, and call backs, and totally off topic side tracks! Everything you’ve come to expect from the podcast! You can find the movie on Netflix to Watch Instantly, and you can also find it streaming on Amazon through our store! Also, check the store for the DVD or to download the totally rad soundtrack!

Coming Next Week: Many Schlockers are eagerly anticipating Streets of Fire! It has Willem DaFoe, Diane Lane, Rick Moranis, and Michael Pare…among many more! Be sure to queue it up!
