2 Fast 2 Forever #167 – Game of Death (1978)
Game of Death could have been a stone-cold classic and one of the best films of all-time. It is not. In this episode, we dig into why. Before we enter the pagoda, though, we chat about Eastbound and Down, MLB Showdown, and Young Rock, and we break down the penultimate minute in the Turbo Charged Prelude. Then, we dive deep into Game of Death to learn more about the behind-the-scenes tragedy, insanity, and outrage. We also watch and talk about the (relatively) newly-released Game of Death Redux, which offers an amazing (and ultimately kind of frustrating) insight into what this movie could have been. (Movie conversation begins around 1:03:40.)
