On this week's episode of Loose Cannons, Mathew and Justin watch 1976's The Yum Yum Girls.
For our second installment of Unsung Anniversaries we take a look back on the 20th anniversary of the decidedly less than rad Home Alone knock-off Blank Check and just how a movie like this ends up getting made in the first place.
It might seem hard to believe that the guy who made the remakes of Cheaper by the Dozen and The Pink Panther got something incredibly right, but he honestly knocks his latest film, Real Steel, out of the park. Shawn Levy gets right what Michael Bay has gotten wrong over the course of three straight Transformers films. Real Steel is a gratifying and visually stylish blend of high end special effects and a lowbrow, meat-headed story. Most importantly, Levy and his team of writers keep things simple by applying the standard sports movie template to a film about robots beating the snot out of each other.
