Speed (1994)

We all remember the big explosions and daring stunts in “Speed,” but some of the biggest risks had nothing to do with the on-screen mayhem. Hiring Ted “Theodore” Logan as an action star? Casting Jeff Daniels as a grizzled police vet? Letting Dennis Hopper anywhere near explosives?

Mega-commissioner Jackson M. thought it just wasn’t right for us to review “Speed 2” without covering the original, and we were more than happy to oblige.

This nonstop thriller is Jan de Bont’s solo directorial debut and the film that made Sandra Bullock America’s mid-90s sweetheart. It’s also a motion picture that displays zero concept of Los Angeles traffic and makes an excellent case for just paying off terrorists.

In this edition of Shat The Movies, Dick Ebert revisits his Blockbuster Video homage to Ron Jeremy and attempts to imitate a person of color for the third episode in a row. Gene learns that Annie Porter was nearly played by Ellen DeGeneres. And Emma Ebert makes a cameo appearance.

We also hear voicemail about Welsh views on “Wayne’s World” and Tennessee opinions on the Goblin King’s age.
