This is the episode we’ll be remembered for. This month on Extra Milestone, Jon, Sam, and Will discuss Tim Burton’s Ed Wood, which celebrates its 25th anniversary of release. We discuss how the film got made, its legacy over the years, and what we really think about it after all this time.
Theme Music: The opening credits of Ed Wood, composed by Howard Shore.

Let us know which Extra Milestone you want us to settle on by commenting below.
I vote for Monty Python Life of Brian. Sam’s first R rated movie!
Close – it was actually The Meaning of Life 😉
Are you really Sam’s dad? Because I have questions.
What do you want to know?
Does Sam do the impressions in daily life?
What’s it like watching a movie with Sam?
Is Sam secretly Jeff Goldblum?
You guys haven’t done a 1974 movie yet, and it would be a shame to close out 2019 without doing so. That said, my pick is Murder on the Orient Express, because that would be especially interesesting to revisit.
Agreed, but I vote WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE. Way more interesting conversation to be had about that one imho
Sam does do impressions in real life. And they are good. My favorite is Johnny Carson. Movies are a no talk zone for Sam. No distractions. As for Sam and Jeff Goldblum being the same person, I have to admit that I have never seen Sam and Jeff Goldblum in the same room at the same time…
Life of Brian.
