34. Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956, 1978, 1993, 2007)
Jack Finney's 1955 science-fiction novel 'The Body Snatchers' is maybe the only underlying intellectual property (aside from, like, the Bible or Shakespeare) to inspire FOUR feature film versions across 6 decades.Â So we start at the beginning with the fantastic Don Siegel (Escape From Alcatraz, Dirty Harry, Charlie Varrick) directed 1956 version, morph into uncanny likenesses of ourselves as we go deep 70's with Sutherland, Leonard Nimoy, Brooke Adams, and Jeff Goldblum, with appreciative asides for Abel Ferarra's 1990's version starring Gabrielle Anwar and less appreciative asides for a 2000's debacle starring Nicole Kidman and Jeremy Northam.Â ALSO: the least-believable nosebleed in movie history, the great Meg Tilly, and we're joined by Friend Of The Pod Paul Kaup to hear his amazing story of a diffident childhood cat and to dive into Tati v. James Charles, speaking of pod people. And In Defense Of Keanu might have to become a thing, b/c Paul and Jason are suitably moved by Keanu's excellent answer on Colbert while Chris remains stone-hearted.

Also, Roger Moore holds court, John Belushi turns on the charm, Gilbert stands in for Sissy Spacek and Nancy sees a (very) rough cut of "Star Wars." PLUS: Remembering Martin Landau! The chaos of "1941"! Abel Ferrara talks turkey! Michael Caine puts on a dress! And Nancy reveals the horrors of "RoboCop 2"!
