Lee and Daniel return for the last episode before jumping into their first look at Spaghetti Westerns on the podcast with two 1990s sci-fi films. First up is the Keanu Reeves cyberpunk action film “Johnny Mnemonic” (1995) and then it’s the gung-ho space marine satire “Starship Troopers” (1997). They touch on how dated 1990s films seem today; Reeves as an actor, and just how much storage space there might actually be in his brain; space Nazis; and they often drift off into talk about how much they love Dina Meyer, who stars in both films.
Featured music: “Memory Johnny” by Black Rain & “Klendathu Drop” by Basil Poledouris.
