A WWE Studios movie without a wrestler?! It’s true, it’s true, and on episode thirteen here at On This Very Screen, Corey Schroeder is back with us as we go in hard on WWE’s post-apocalyptic siege flick, The Day, starring Lost’s Dominic Monaghan, A Knight’s Tale’s Shannyn Sossamasonicon, and X-Men‘s Shawn Ashmore! In this show, the gang discusses proper attire when traversing the wasteland, what happens when your villain is a South African warlord with a Mexican accent, and this movie’s total insistence that sometimes, you just need to murder a child. Did I mention that Marc loves Animorphs?

Did You Know? Though we casually refer to him as “Mohawk” during the show, the somewhat forgettable actor who plays “Father” in this movie is apparently a WWE Studios all-star, having roles in “The Day,” “The Marine 3: Homefront,” and “See No Evil 2.” Fingers crossed he takes over for Triple H in the “Chaperone” franchise later this year.
Like your Wasteland full of cannibals, Shannyn Sossamon, and all of it taking place in one single, solitary set (not a budget thing, I swear)? Well, it’ll be Lord of the Rings and Animorphs references, galore, when OTVS reviews their first WWE Studios movie WITHOUT a WWE superstar — the 2012 post-apocalyptic thriller, The Day! Get out your blue filters, ScreenTeam, that show drops next week!
Finally, On This Very Screen has come back… to the interwebz! Oh, our dear ScreenTeam, the gang is back with their first episode of 2016 and we go in guns a-blazin’ as we tackle the supremely funny and criminally underrated action/comedy, The Rundown. Starring Dwayne Johnson and Seann William Scott (with some great help in Rosario Dawson and Christopher f’ing Walken), THIS is the film that every WWE Studios movie should aspire to, bar none, as you’ll hear in this glowing review from Marc, Annie, and Corey (pinch-hitting for Paolo). Also in this episode, you’ll find out what a movie’s gotta do to make Marc feel uncomfortable, the logic behind getting your fiancé to watch WWE Christmas movies, and the absolute worst way possibleto flirt with Annie. Hint? It’s really, really racist.

Did You Know? That “thunder and lightning” bit? A total joke, according to Seann William Scott. But according to IMDB, Stifler’s improv about his fighting skills was so entertaining, that it HAD to stay in. Now, if only he could do something about that second “n” in his first name…
HAPPY NEW YEAR, ScreenTeam! The OTVS crew is back from our holiday/NYE shenanigans and we’re ready to ROCK the ever-loving hell out of 2016. That said, how apropos is it that we take on the 2003 ass-kicking, jungle-hopping epic, The Rundown, starring the Great One himself, Dwayne Johnson, and American Pie’s Seann William Scott?! If you haven’t seen it, SEE IT, as this is easily one of the best WWE Studios movies ever put on film. Also, remember our contest deadline is rapidly approaching, so check the deets and enter NOW!
