Ep. 112 — SPEED (1994) with Todd Davis


Our "Try Hard" series concludes this week with a look at 90s action classic SPEED!

We're joined this week by special guest Todd Davis to take a deep dive into what makes this movie work, and why it's one of the  more enduring films to come out of the post-DIE HARDera of action films. 

As always, in addition to our analysis of the film itself, we'll discuss how it came to be, from script to final product, including a break down of how some of the movie's insane stunts were accomplished.

And this week, we're nominating SPEEDfor the Psychotronic Hall of Fame! Do you think it deserves a spot among the greatest genre films of all time?
