GUESTS: World Music composer / performer Farzam Salami, and the podcast troupe "We Found Microphones" on Aziz Ansari's MASTER OF NONE. THE MOVIE SNEAK is honored to welcome New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster. The most critically acclaimed creator of "novelizations" (the "reverse" art of adapting films and their scripts into books instead of the other way around), Foster's works include ALIEN, OUTLAND, THE THING, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, ALIEN NATION, THE BLACK HOLE, CLASH OF THE TITANS, STARMAN, PALE RIDER and both J.J. Abrams STAR TREK reboots. He's creator of the original script ("In Thy Image") which became STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE. His non-novelization books include SLIPT, TO THE VANISHING POINT and the popular SPELLSINGER and PIP AND FLINX series. And his near career-long association with the STAR WARS universe includes the novelization of the original 1977 film (ghost-written as "George Lucas"), the first original "expanded universe" entry - the wildly popular SPLINTER OF THE MIND'S EYE, along with STAR WARS: THE APPROACHING STORM and the recent STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Lovers of both film and literature will get as much of a kick outta this one as we did! Rights to film / TV clips and other audio excerpts held by copyright owners.

GUESTS: Internationally renowned composer / musician Martin Tillman; the podcast troupe "We Found Microphones" on Netflix's JESSICA JONES; and David Mickey Evans.
With RADIO FLYER and THE SANDLOT, writer / director David Mickey Evans combined childhood magic with real world trauma for the first time since the 60s era cinema of Francois Truffaut. In the process he broke the mold of cliched cuteness inherent in movies and series such as HOME ALONE and THE COSBY SHOW, and helped usher in an era of more "gritty" big screen family fare by others; titles such as MRS. DOUBTFIRE and even CASPER for the first time broaching topics such as divorce, absentee parents, the death of loved ones and more. Craig Jamison & Jim Delaney invite us into an alternately hilarious and heart-breakingly inspirational sit-down with Evans - discussing the creation of THE SANDLOT and RADIO FLYER, his 2007 buried treasure,THE FINAL SEASON,, his upcoming biopic on high school football coach Ed Thomas, and much more.

Quentin Tarantino once famously stated "When people ask me if I went to film school, I say 'No, I went to films'". And since the near extinction of the drive-in and inner city grindhouse triple feature, those Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Dollar Store DVD dump bins have become the go-to place for those eager to experiment with off-center cinema, ... or at least, for a buck or two, take a flying leap on something (major studio or independent) which one may not have otherwise been willing to shell out $20 to see on the big screen, ... especially as each month Netflix (reaching a cap on bandwidth) deletes more and more titles from it's queue.
Not huge fans of awards season in general (we don't like how, intentional or not, they tend to divide films into "important" and "unimportant") we pay tribute to films not necessarily RELEASED in 2016, but which we, through the wonder & magic of the cheapie bin, first VIEWED in 2016. Call it an awards show for movies many don't give a damn about. With categories ranging from "Best Remake / Reboot" to "Favorite Film Which the Rest of the World Absolutely Hated", to "Best Cheapie Bin Film of The Year" and more, we just may upend and replace the Globes, Oscars and Razzies.
