CF3: Cult Fans, Films & Finds


Nov 25, 2019

FANS: By Grabthar's Hammer, what an episode we've got for you! After Kevin McDonald introduces the CF3 crew in the style of his announcer character from Galaxy Quest, we are joined by Jack Bennett, director of Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary (2019), which screens in theaters across the country for one night only 11/26 through Fathom Events. Jack talks about his vision for the film, dazzles us with tales of meeting the Quest cast & crew, honors the late Alan Rickman and genuinely geeks out with us. SEE THIS MOVIE!

FILMS: We review Galaxy Quest (1999), complete with commentary and Cult Filmometer scores from Jack Bennett, Kevin McDonald and Jeremy Howard, who played Brandon's friend Kyle in the film's climax and denouement. How does the film stack up when compared to Evolution (2001), another sci-fi comedy from Dreamworks from the same era? Who was our favorite Quest crew member? Was Tim Allen the right choice? All your questions will be answered.

FINDS: Fittingly, we have updates about Paramount's upcoming Star Trek films. Plus, Sonic's expensive new look, When a Stranger Calls on Blu-ray, and a Chinatown prequel from Netflix.
