Episode 90: The Island (2005)

For some reason we leap back to Michael Bay again – this time to 2005’s sci-fi action thriller The Island. Join us as we discuss if this film is worth watching. It does have a great cast, but does that mean it’s a great movie? We discuss this and more. Hope you enjoy.

Season 4, Episode 9

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Editor: Paul Rubell

From: Collateral

Chosen by:

Crew (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

This episode we leap with editor Paul Rubell, which was a tough choice for Glenn as at first glance it seems he has mostly done Michael Mann movies, and Michael Bay movies, none of which appealed to Glenn. In the end, we leap to Michael Bay’s The Island.

 

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Ewan McGregor

To: Black Hawk Down

Chosen by:

Crew (Mike)
Film (Scott)

Mike chooses Ewan McGregor who needs no introduction. Out of the many great options available Scott decides to go to war film Black Hawk Down, not a film Mike or Glenn were hoping for…
