GTGC - #175 - Romancing the Stone


Grab your whip and load the jeep, we're back this week to talk about Romancing the Stone which we have been commanded to watch thanks to the Randomizer AB1700. Your favorite cinephiles are back to talk Robert Zemeckis' action-adventure romance film starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. 

The adventure begins this week as we play our very own Choose Your Own Adventure game. We put together our own adventure films by casting our lead actor and villain then selecting our MacGuffin and location. A good time is had by all, and Dalton wants to see all of the movies discussed. We then get down to business. Alex is the first to put her business socks on as she discusses the objectification, both sexual and general, of women in this film. Dalton continues his series of protagonist studies as he talks about Michael Douglas and his kind of bumbling hero who is a step behind the action and a bit of a schmuck. Caleb does a compare and contrast ofRomancing the Stone and platforming and adventure video games specifically the Uncharted series. Dustin takes a postcolonial glance of Romancing the Stone and discusses how the minorities are used for romanticism and mysticism and most troubling for white entertainment. 

We've got our passports ready, Dear Listener. So, get your gear together; grab your finest pair of shoes, and hit that play button.
