EP. 170 — Speed

Paul & Amy jump over 1994’s Keanu Reeves bus-gone-wild action thriller Speed! They learn about the expanded role of the bus passengers in early drafts of the script, listen to newly minted star Sandra Bullock field condescending questions about her role, ask if Keanu’s Jack Traven is more soulful than he lets on. Plus: is the film score a secret masterpiece?
