Post-Apocalyptic Nightmares Come True: Escape from New York and 12 Monkeys

Musician and writer Jerome Rankine joins Courtney and Chris to break down what exactly is a post-apocalyptic movie, and how one differs from an apocalypse movie and a dystopian future movie. 

The reason for this differentiation is that this week's genre--Post-Apocalyptic Nightmares Come True--leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

Our Post-Apocalyptic movies are John Carpenter's Escape from New York and Terry Gilliam's 12 monkeys, which are also coincidentally both films about prisoners offered pardon for achieving the aims of Big Brother.

Which is fun. 

So, what's the best Post-Apocalyptic Nightmare Come True movie? What exactly are the limits of time-travel? And why does Bruce Willis have to wear a condom suit in order to be shot through an even bigger time-travel condom?

These questions and more answered on this week's show.
