Episode 14 Notes

  • Quentin Tarantino is often credited with rebooting John Travolta’s career with Pulp Fiction (1994)
  • The 2015 Oscar Nominees will be announced this Thursday, January 15
  • Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon starred in Fear (1996)
  • Rob Cohen also directed the original The Fast and the Furious (2001) and xXx (2002)
  • I was 15 years old when Jurassic Park was released on Jun 11, 1993 so my story checks out so far
  • John Corbett portrayed the cool-dude DJ, Chris Stevens on 110 episodes of Northern Exposure (1990–1995)
  • Ryan Guzman, who plays Noah, was born in 1987
  • DragonHeart (1996) was written by Patrick Read Johnson and Charles Edward Pogue
  • Rob Morrow plays Dick Goodwin in Quiz Show (1994). He did leave Northern Exposure to  pursue his movie career but I think he was only completely absent from 8 episodes. Paul Provenza played the doctor who comes to Cicely to replace him.
  • Alan did not say that Wilco was overrated
  • The Boy Next Door opens in the USA on January 23, 2015. Send an email to kendall@filmsofthefuture.com if you wanna come see the movie with us in Chicago.
