Get off my plane!  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, and Ethan (Georgia's crawling around the cargo hold and Liam's sleeping while watching the football) as we endeavor to fly TransAtlantic without incident in 1997's Die Hard on a Plane, Air Force One.  We're inferring about direct orders in our 132nd episode as we discuss:

  • We discuss Quidditch and Quadball for 2 minutes as well as Marvel's Phases 5 & 6
  • Who was first approached to play President James Marshall
  • The one change that Glenn Close demanded before she agreed to play the vice president
  • Which president liked this movie and which president liked this movie a little too much
  • We discuss what exactly a 'direct order 'means
  • Ian rages a bit about the film continuously defying its own internal logic
  • How do Pyjamas turn into a full military uniform
  • When is exposition natural and when is it forced
  • Ian comes up with an acceptable secondary title for this film
  • We ask whether Gary Oldman is note perfect or over the top as the film's villain
  • Whether or not Air Force One is the Best Film Ever.
