On this episode of YOU DON’T KNOW DICK we’re joined by CLAPBOARD JUNGLE director Justin McConnell to discuss Joe Dante’s wonderful 1985 science-fiction film EXPLORERS, starring Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, Jason Presson and – of course – Dick Miller as Charlie Drake. We talk about 80’s nostalgia, the film’s often-criticized third act, wonder AND awe, and of course all things Dick Miller. Check it out!
