JFD490: Kuroneko, Polyester, Knock Knock

Nov 8, 2019

Description:

This week, we've hand picked a heady selection of weird and wild cult films for us to watch and discuss! Donloyd, listen and enjoy along as we chat about 'em, won't you?
Up first! Y'all remember that spooky old Japanese folktale about the black cat and the samurais? No? Well, don't worry because the 1968 film adaptation Kuroneko has got you covered, with extra scary fog and bamboo forests to spare.
Next up! Way back in 1981, a still-semi-fringe John Waters and a still-not-yet-dead Divine threw together another co-lab feature, this time a sort of parody of old school "women's films." The movie we speak of is of course Polyester, not to be confused with the synthetic fabric.

Finally! It's a third film: Knock Knock, the 2015 Eli Roth-directed remake of Death Game with Keanu Reeves and the Free Pizza Speech. Is it better or worse than the original Death Game? Does Keanu do sex? Donloyd now to find out.


All this plus the JFD Halloween Hangover Report, Kwaidan chats, a secret blood oath regarding the new cinematic release The Lighthouse, a semi-censored junkmail from down under, a brief detour into Rancho Cucamonga, Parker pays personal tribute to Seth MacFarlane, is Clive Barker a Sex Creep? we decide 'yes', the fascinating filmography of an Avengers-based pornographer, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

JFD489: Kenny & Company, Trick or Treat, House of 1,000 Corpses

Oct 30, 2019

Description:


Happy Halloween to all our pals in Junk Food Dinner Land! It's everyone's favorite holiday so, this week we're throwing the ultimate Halloween shindig and every-bloody's in-bited!
Up first, before directing Phantasm, Don Coscarelli directed this quaint PG tale about a pre-teen boy and his friends and slices from their lives leading up to Halloween in 1976's Kenny & Co. (using a lot of the same actors who would later appear in Phantasm).
Then, we examine what many consider the ultimate heavy metal Halloween movie, Trick or Treat from 1986 about a young metalhead (Marc Price, AKA Skippy from Family Ties) who resurrects a dead metal musician from beyond the grave by playing his records backwards.
And finally, we reevaluate Rob Zombie's directorial debut House of 1,000 Corpses from 2003, where a group of 20-somethings get kidnapped and tortured by a family of sadistic hillbillies.
All this plus Sean Byron's baseball chat, Junk Mail about horror marathons, Nerd News, hate for Disney, Godzilla box sets, spooky noises, Halloween party tunes and so much more!

JFD487: Witchery, Dead Heat, Leprechaun Returns

Oct 18, 2019

Description:

This week, we're getting spooked & scared & sleepy (???), all courtesy of our pals from the Dom Deluise Patreon Club. We've let these fine folks choose three Schlocktober features for us to chat about, and we deliver on that promise!
Up first! Y'all remember the La Casa series of horror films, right? Not so much an actual series of films but instead a marketing ploy that involved selling unrelated fright flicks to an unwitting Italian public, the series includes entries from the Evil Dead and House franchises at various points in time. Our feature this week, Witchery (aka La Casa 4: Witchcraft) from 1988, has no actual relation to those franchises, but does feature a scary house in Scituate, MA. It's also got Linda Blair, David Hasselhoff, and a witch!
Next up! Way back in 1988, New World Pictures tried to sneak a hyper-violent zombie horror/comedy past our noses by burying it inside a buddy-cop film called Dead Heat, with Joe Piscopo and Treat "Gotta Eat" Williams in the lead roles. But will this odd concoction go down smoothly? The answer will surprise you.

Finally! It's a third film: Leprechaun Returns, the SyFy Original sequel to the original Leprechaun which ignores all of the other sequels and starts a new fork in the canon. Nobody's expecting this to be good, right? Will we be surprised by the mischievous little gold-chaser? Donloyd now to find out.


All this plus Kevin Moss Presents: a sticky selection of spooky seasonal sweets, Sean sees a spider, pouring one out for Robert Forster, finally consumers will have a way to access films and television produced by the Disney corporation, we tease a Maniac Cop Theme Show (the long clock starts now on our eventual fulfillment of this promise), Kevin professes his love for old-timey black & white horror movies, we play back the tape, Kevin professes his love for old-timey black & white kaiju movies, a shocking reveal of profound sleepiness, a shocking disagreement over the quality of a classic film, a shocking reversal of expectations from a SyFy Original, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

Oct 9, 2019

Description:


Greetings boils and ghouls, Schlocktober rolls right along with more spooktacular surprises. This week, we delve into the devilish delights of three horror anthology films!

Up first, Vincent Price recounts the sordid history of a Tennessee town to Susan Tyrrell with a series of strange and spooky tales in From a Whisper to a Scream from 1987.

Then, a mortician played by Clarence Williams III spins a series of yarns about creepy events in the inner city to a trio of gang bangers looking to buy some drugs in Tales from the Hood from 1995.

And finally, various strangers enter an empty theater only to have unsettling stories about themselves play out on the big screen at the behest of a mysterious projectionist played by Mickey Rourke in Nightmare Cinema from 2018.

All this plus Joker chat, old man cinema-going, root beer milk, voicemails about horror marathons, Nerd News, this week's hottest blu-rays and so much more!

JFD485: Munster, Go Home!, The Munsters' Revenge, Here Come the Munsters

Oct 4, 2019

Description:

Schlocktober is finally here and we're spending time with America's favorite family with a Frankenstein patriarch. It's Munster Week.

First, the Munsters hit the big screen after leaving TV in "Munster, Go Home!" from 1966. Herman gets weird that an English relative died, so the family heads to the UK to collect.

Next, the gang returns in a 1981 Halloween special. In this one, Herman and Grandpa are framed for a crime by evil robot versions of themselves. And Sid Caesar shows up.

Finally, it's a total reboot! The Munsters are recast and coming to America! An evil politician wants the Munsters (and all other immigrants deported). It's "Here Come the Munsters."

All this plus surfing chat, DVDs, Nerd News, Junk Mails, and in-depth talk about Dom Deluise status and so much more!

JFD484: The Blood of the Beasts, Disciples of the Crow, 2 Legit 2 Quit

Sep 27, 2019

Description:

This week, we're pulling a fast one yet again with another round of short film reviews! Well, at least the films are short. Our reviews are actually longer than them.
Up first! Y'all remember the vibe of post-war Industrial age French slaughter houses, right? Get nostalgiac in a Ghoul Summer kinda way, for the way your grandpa packed meat, with 1949's Blood of the Beasts. Directed by Georges Franju (Judex, Eyes Without a Face (Not the Billy Idol video))!
Next up! Way back in 1983, a full one year before Hollywood produced a 92-minute feature film version, an amateur film maker cranked out 18 minutes of spooky Children of the Corn material and called it Disciples of the Corn for some reason. If you like scarecrows and the end of summertime, get ready to experience it on film.

Finally! It's a third "film": 2 Legit 2 Quit the 1991 music video extravaganza from our good friend Hammer (the MC formerly known as MC Hammer). A shockingly long runtime combined with an unending string of celebrity cameos make this one of the most expensive music videos ever made for a song that nobody likes. Is the video any good?


All this plus a comparison of movie databases on the internet, end of summer waterpark chats, the return of a mythical voicemail caller, Kevin's enthusiam for b&w 60's czech films, Travis with a blood-soaked GWARpdate, checking balls for scuff marks, a scary scenario in which people walk by and mock you, Kevin discover a new fuck-style (solo coffin), baseball chats, Stephen King chats, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

Sep 20, 2019

Description:


The listeners demanded it, so here we are, back for another round of Ghoul Summer just in time to close out the season with three more disgusting and twisted slices of cinematic depravity.

Up first, a Chinese film about greedy land developers who kill thousands of snakes while building a luxury apartments only to unleash a curse of snakes that plagues them with piles of serpents at every turn in Calamity of Snakes from 1982.

Then, we get the charming tale of a Japanese superhero who is hired to get revenge for his clients by raping their female targets in The Rapeman from 1994, based off the manga and anime of the same name.

And finally, we get a grimy glimpse into the life of an embalmer in Columbia as he slices up bodies on a daily basis in the super-ghoulish documentary Orozco the Embalmer from 2001.

All this plus discussion on when Halloween season begins, voicemails defending Sweetman's honor, Nerd News, this week's hottest blu-rays, spirited debate about what is satire and so much more!

JFD481: Santo and Blue Demon Versus Doctor Frankenstein, Masked Mutilator, Wrestlemaniac

Sep 6, 2019

Description:

This week, we're slapping on the veil and stepping in the ring - that's right, it's our Masked Wrestler Horror theme show, where we review three scary movies featuring grapplers in disguise!
Up first! Doctor Irving Frankenstein is up to some brain-transplanting no good and it's up to a couple of very famous luchadors to stop him in the bizarre Mexican crossover Santo and Blue Demon Versus Doctor Frankenstein (aka Santo y Blue Demon contra el doctor Frankenstein), from 1974. Featuring real-ass authentic Mexican wrestling action, and fictional vampires!
Next up! Way back in 1994, a handful of local wrestlers and aspiring filmmakers grinded out some weekends in the back woods of Pennsylvania, with the simple hope of bringing the world a masked-wrestler-horror film called Masked Mutilator. For reasons, it was never completed/released. But now, Severin Films is proud to announce this long-forgotten slice of rural moviemaking can be viewed by audiences willing and otherwise. And we're proud to announce we've reviewed it right here on the show.

Finally! It's a third film: Wrestlemaniac (2006), which is an American slasher film starring the uncle of real-life murder-doing person Rey Mysterio Jr. (Ready to Rumble, WCW Hog Wild '96).


All this plus more yet another guest wistfully reminenscing about the party at Parker's place where people peed (in a wall), Parker makes Kevin an F5-related promise he might not be prepared to keep, no fun in the central California valleys, grapplechats, a current theatrical horror round-up, a glorious embrace of the return of the Boob Scale, a junkmail from a good old friend (likely drunk), respect for the elderly, Musical Sweetman, confusion from down under, fast food news chew can use, It Part 2 (whatever), what a Parker wants, the world according to the Scoobypedia, a Batty Call, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

JFD479: Angela, the Fireworks Woman, Schramm, Funny Games (2007)

Aug 23, 2019

Description:

It's the grossest time of the year and we've got three movies of variable ghoulishness and perhaps the most divisive Ghoul Summer -- or JFD -- movie of all time.

First, after "Last House," Wes Craven stars in and (probably) directed this porn flick about an incestuous brother/sister duo, the drugs they enjoy, the priesthood and Satan in "Angela, the Fireworks Woman."

Next, from the director of "Nekromantic" comes an equally edgy tale of a German serial killer's death dream, mutilated genitals, bloody underpants and so much more in "Schramm."

Finally, Oscar-winning director Michael Heneke's remake of his own film: Funny Games. In this 2007 version, two nice young boys play humorous and violent games with a privileged family for their own -- but mostly the audience's -- amusement.

All this plus Nerd News, DVDs, Junk Mails, Tom Cruise Apologies, Cookie Chat, Are Crybabies also Warheads?, Playing the tape back, did Justin threaten us? And so much more!

JFD478: War of the Gargantuas, Things, Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever

Aug 15, 2019

Description:

This week, we're righting wrongs and saluting our patrons - that's right, it's your monthly Dom Deluise Club theme show, where we review three movies chosen by our listeners!
Up first! It's last of the UPA/Toho collaborations, and the first/only semi-sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World - of course, we're talking about 1966's War of the Gargantuas, the bizarre double-Frankenstein-themed kaiju (giant monster) feature from director Ishirō Honda (of original Godzilla fame). And you thought that original Mothra movie was weird! Shout-out to Kevin E for suggesting it!
Next up! Eagle-eared and sharp-minded podcast listeners might recall a legendary gaffe made in the earliest days of this historic podcast, in which intrepid purveyor of film criticism Parker Bowman accidentally watched the wrong movie named Things, back on episode #87 (LISTEN HERE). So, this week Kevin and Sean will be reviewing Things from 1993, and Parker will finally get to share his musings on the 1989 Barry Gillis classic. Thanks Evan G for the suggestion!

Finally! It's a third film: Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009), which is one of those flesh-eating-bacteria-in-bottled-water-slowly-melts-the-occupants-of-a-highschool films. You know the type. The real goopy ones. And check out that soundtrack! Directed by Ti West, who tried (and failed) to Alan Smithee this joint. Kudos to Justin for sending it our way!


All this plus more Dave Chappelle chat, alley-way film screenings, righting all the wrongs, revelations about Kevin Moss's text-messaging proficiency, fact-checking Dolemite biopic location accuracy, racist cat names, taking out the 'u', the tricky politics of modern film distribution, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

JFD477: Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Point Blank

Aug 7, 2019

Description:


Finally, an episode of JFD that feet sex perverts, British humour enthusiasts and tough-ass grandpas can all agree on! This week, everyone's talking about the new Tarantino flick and we're no exception. We have an exhaustive conversation on that and two other mildly related films, so strap in, it's going to be a long one.

Up first, we dive head first into Quentin Tarantino's 9th film, the brand new Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. A love letter to L.A. and 1969 about two aging buddies in the film industry and their fictional connection to the infamous Manson Family. How does it stack up to QT's other films? Is it shameless retro pandering? How many feet are in it? We find out.

Then, we look at the film in which Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate met in real life, the 1967 horror-comedy The Fearless Vampire Killers. In this goofy tale, a bumbling vampire hunter (Jack MacGowran) and his equally bumbling assistant (Polanski) try to save a sexy young woman (Tate) from a regal blood sucker in snow-covered Transylvania.

And finally, Lee Marvin and John "go fuck an iceberg" Vernon steal some cash from a crime organization on Alcatraz island, but Vernon double crosses Marvin and leaves him for dead and fucks off with not only the money but also his wife! Too bad for him and everyone else, Lee Marvin survives and comes back to get what's his (with a little help from Angie Dickinson) in Point Blank, also from 1967.

All this, plus cereal chat, more complaints about paper straws, a whole slew of top notch voicemails, Nerd News, doc talk, this week's hottest discs and so much more!

JFD476: Multiple Maniacs, Wake in Fright, Con Air

Aug 2, 2019

Description:

We're back with three flicks from our Patreon Buddies!

First, John Waters, Divine and the whole crew get sleazy and weird. Divine plays a freakshow performer with a violent streak in "Multiple Maniacs."

Next, directed by the guy who brought us "Rambo" and "Weekend at Bernie's," comes "Wake in Fright" -- an Ozploitation classic about a teacher who devolves into a debaucherous creep while on Christmas break.

Finally, Nick Cage plays a guy with some kind of accent in "Con Air." You know this movie. A bunch of actors you like are shirtless on a plane.

JFD475: Mugsy's Girls, The Demolitionist, Reflections of Evil

Jul 26, 2019

Description:

Rest easy, friends! We're all in much better hands this week - the Junk Food Dinner gang is being joined by the one and only Jason Frisbie to review yet another trio of weird films!
Up first! It's the mud wrestling antics of horny old Ruth Gordon and her college student friends in 1985's Mugsy's Girls, an 80's sex comedy with an interestingly female perspective (plus: vintage Las Vegas hotel interiors!).
Next up! We check in with our old friend Nicole Eggert (Baywatch) and see what kinda Barbed Wire esque adventures she can get up to (a year before Pam Anderson gets around to it), in The Demolitionist, from 1995. It's a RoboCop kind of a thing with a bit of Terminator and some other big sci-fi/action concepts thrown in, but cheaply. You might enjoy it. Directed by Robert Kurtzman!

Finally! It's a third film: Reflections of Evil, Damon Packard's directorial debut, from 2002. This much heralded low-fi indie film has some cult movie critics proclaiming it to be a filmic equivalent of Merzbow (in a good way), while others are claiming it to be equivalent to Merzbow (in a bad way). Check it out for yourself or listen to what we thought of this noise.


All this plus superior posters, scalin' back wild claims, Warhammer Chat, Fear and Loathing in Dad Vegas featuring: a much-awaited Kentucky Hot-Brown follow-up, forearm gravy, the only street in Fairborn Ohio, Rat People are the something of something else, the secret to Kevin's signature hair, listener junkmails from our goofy pals, background poochie, greasing the palms, 4 child-less men in their 30's discuss theme parks, background fist fights, clever meta-premises, a hankerin' for critters, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

JFD474: The Manster, The Hellstrom Chronicle, Crazy Safari

Jul 18, 2019

Description:


While Parker is out losing his shirt in some Vegas casino on an American Gladiators slot machine, Kevin and Sean are joined by our old brother Mark Freado to discuss three very different and very strange films.

Up first, an american journalist in Japan comes in contact with a mad scientist who feels like he would be the perfect test subject for his latest experiment in The Manster from 1959.

Then, we take an in depth look at various species of insects and find out why they will someday reclaim the Earth as their own in the 1971 Academy Award-winning documentary The Hellstrom Chronicle.

And finally, what would happen if you mixed the Chinese hopping bloddsuckers from Mr. Vampire with the wacky African tribal antics of The Gods Must Be Crazy? We find out as we examine Crazy Safari from 1991.

All this, plus talk about bull penises, Creature from the Black Lagoon chat, ghoulish voicemails, Nerd News, Blu-rays and so much more!

JFD472: Captain America (1944 serial), Why Man Creates, Styx: Killroy Was Here (mini-movie)

Jul 5, 2019

Description:

This week, we return to the deep and largely untapped well of short films for an easy-breezy summertime celebration of friendship, podcasting, and weird videos! It's the perfect antidote to your July 4th hangover (combined with fluids, rest, and federally-regulated painkillers).
Up first! It's the surprisingly violent first installment of the 1944 serialized drama version of Captain America, in which the Captain is for some reason a District Attorney in search of a vibrator. It's old-timey and weird and full of surprises that we chat all about.
Next up! We check in with our old friend Saul Bass (director of Phase IV) and see what all the late sixties Oscar buzz was about in regards to his award-winning 1968 short documentary Why Man Creates. It's a somewhat ramshackle, fairly charming, and wholly unique little collection of brief segments loosely structured around creativity. Plus it's got that signature George Lucas visual style!

Finally! It's a third short: Styx: Killroy Was Here, (aka Styx: Caught in the Act) the 1983 concept-concert-film that nearly killed the treasured rock & roll outfit Styx. Famed musical lunatic Dennis Deyoung masterminded this semi-racist Blade Runner-esque futuretale of the death of rock music, featuring the talents of the director of Poltergeist II and the director of the Making of Thriller, and some kind of allegory about domestic automobile manufacturing. How ridiculous is it? Very.


All this plus a sweaty-journalism fuck-style theorem, an on-scene report from the filming locations of Jack Frost, a surprising return for Face to Face chat, Kevin Moss is Mister Roboto (he's skype-y this week), a look at major league pitching deficiencies in London, more or less Morlocks, partially drunken musings on the current state of affairs in the Blaxploitation world, Parker references Marvel movies, a Pupstar update, throwing shade at Babar the Elephant, shout out to Bosco sticks, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!

JFD471: Stunt Man, Better off Dead, School Spirit

Jun 28, 2019

Description:


This week on JFD, gentlemen and ladies, the Patreon picks are all about the 80's.

Up first, Steve Railsback is a Vietnam vet and fugitive on the run who stumbles onto the set of a World War I movie being made by Peter O'Toole, who offers him an opportunity to hide-out on his set if agrees to replace their stunt man who has recently died. While on the lamb Railsback learns a thing or two about stunt work and falls in love with the film's star played by Barbara Hershey in 1980's The Stunt Man.

Then, John Cusack plays a high school kid obsessed with his girlfriend until she dumps him for the captain of the ski team, sending him into a suicidal funk until he meets the local French foreign exchange student played by Diane Franklin in Better Off Dead from 1985 directed by Savage Steve Holland.

Finally, a horny college student dies after being hit by a car on his way back from buying a condom, but postpones the afterlife to hang around on Earth for a fews days as a ghost trying to get laid one last time before heading to the Great Beyond in 1985's School Spirit.

All this plus witty banter between friends, we discuss the new Charles Play movie and Sean recounts his real life run-in with Young Charles, $27 plastic fork toys, Dom DeLuise vs Paul Prudhomme chat,  a call from our grandpa  and so much more.

JFD470: Hansel & Gretel, The Making of Thriller, The Great Space Jam

Jun 21, 2019

Description:

We're back with a round of weird ass short films this week.

First, we delve into a Tim Burton deep cut with one of his first films, "Hansel & Gretel" which was shown once or maybe twice on the Disney Channel and never screened for human eyes ever again. In it, Hansel and Gretel are Japanese and run afoul of a witch.

Next, a behind the scenes look at a defining moment of the '80s -- "The Making of Michael Jackson's Thriller." In this, the King of Pop and the director of "The Stupids" make a scary commercial for the biggest album of all time.

Finally, an evil space queen looks to take over Earth so she can have an outdated URL in "The Great Space Jam." This wacky movie was made in 48 hours by the RedLetterMedia dudes.

All this, plus Fruit Chat, DVDs, Nerd News, Milkshake Chat, Nice voicemails, Straw Chat, other types of chat and so much more chat!

JFD469: Crimewave, Darkman, Army of Darkness

Jun 14, 2019

Description:

This week, we kick off the Summer of Sam (Raimi, that is)! So pack up the Oldsmobile and groove along with us to some classic jams from the slapstick indie genre darling of our youths!
Up first! It's the semi-forgotten feature that Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell put together shortly after The Evil Dead and before its first sequel. Not a horror film, but more of a slapstick comedy slash film noir parody slash Looney Tunes live-action tribute slash murder mystery slash action movie, or something. Of course, we're talking about 1985's Crimewave, which by the way features a meaty role for character acting legend Brion James.
Next up! It's Old Sam's take on Universal Monsters and Golden Age Superheroes, with a dash of Mission Impossible thrown in for fun. We're chatting of course about 1990's Darkman, the one about the guy with the burned face and the masks.

Finally! It's a third movie: Army of Darkness, the 1992 feature that you might have heard a thing or two about. It's the final Evil Dead movie ever made or associated with that franchise, and once again stars Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams. But does it feature any deadites?


All this plus for the love of old men, a Dave Chappelle update, a Bushwick Bill in memoriam, Kevin Moss reveals some Halloween staples in his house, no steamed hams (this time), a Ghoul Summer update in the form of an unsettling health update, a semi-ardent Švankmajer supporter, a steamin' heap of junkmail, Swamp Thing was a thing?, Parker claims there are too many DC Superhero movies being released, Parker Bowman tells us how he really feels about Steven Spielberg, we're sorry to Massacre Video for goofing on a movie they're releasing, the kinds of crime that Parker's into, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks!

JFD468: Adam at Six A.M., Cruising, Transylvania Twist

Jun 7, 2019

Description:


Greetings, Junkies. This week on JFD we've got three very different flicks featuring everything from bar fights with Joe Don Baker, leather daddies on the prowl and goofy vampire humor!

Up first, Michael Douglas plays a young California professional who travels to a small town in Missouri for a relatives funeral and ends up sticking around to do manual labor with Joe Don Baker, find love and maybe, just maybe, find himself in Adam at Six A.M. from 1970 directed by Robert Scheerer.

Then, Al Pacino plays a young cop who goes undercover in the underground BDSM subculture of New York City to find a serial killer who's targeting gay men in William Friedkin's Cruising from 1980.

And finally, Jim Wynorski directs a silly horror movie parody about a guy (Steve Altman) and a girl (Teri Copley) who travel to "the old country" to find a relative and magical book that could awaken ancient spirits in the slapstick Transylvania Twist from 1989.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Roky Erickson remembered, our thoughts on the new Godzilla movie, comic book movie crossovers, Robert Maplethorpe chat, and so much more.

Description:

We're back a round of Patreon Picks. We can always count on the patreons to pick the good shit.

Next, a nice New York girl meets a homeless guy but there's one problem. Well, he's homeless, so I guess there's two problems. He's also a monster in "My Demon Lover."

JFD466: A Trip to the Moon, Arcade Attack: Silver Ball Heroes vs. Video Invaders, Geometria, Trancers: City of Lost Angels

May 24, 2019

Description:

What's up, shorties? This week's menu features some well done bits of abbreviated cinema, a medium amount of technical glitches, and other rare occurences - including but not limited to the appearance of our Brother Mark Freado, the inclusion of a fourth film on the show, and most shockingly: two colons. That's right - this month's SHORT FILMS episode of JFD is here and ready to blow (those two colons)!
Up first! Way back in the pre-9/11 days of yore, there was a charming and talented Frenchman named Georges Méliès. Way back around the turn of the century (no, that other century), this guy had the smart idea to throw the still-new-as-a-literary-genre concepts of Science Fiction up onto the silver screen. The result (among several hundred more) is of course 1902's A Trip to the Moon! Will this be the oldest movie JFD ever reviews? It seems likely. Watch here first and then listen along with us!

Next up! It's the rarely-discussed 1982 British semi-documentary Arcade Attack: Silver Ball Heroes vs. Video Invaders,. It's a movie we've watched and you'll hear about it. I can tell you this now: it's got some killer animation, surprisingly. Also, look out for pinball related full-back tattoos! Watch here first and then listen along with us!

And then! Did y'all know that Guillermo del Toro was making short films back in '87? I didn't, either. At least until we reviewed the weird/stylish Exorcist-esque Geometria from 1987 - and it was an eye-opener. You'd think we'd be satisfied with just this many reviews, but you'd be wrong! Watch here first and then listen along with us!

Finally! It's a third movie: Trancers: City of Lost Angels, the 1988 short films from famed schlock master Charles Band. Originally produced as a segment for an unreleased anthology film (seems like a popular Band move), this thing's got Sarah Palmer from Twin Peaks in it! It might not actually have any Trancers, though - we can't really be sure. Watch here first and then listen along with us!


All this plus an official Ghoul Summer update, Kevin hates John Wick, checkin' with the dead bodies in junkfooddinnerland, The Return of the Boob Scale (tm), Kevin is turned off by Fred Armisen, do the kids care at all about Mortal Kombat anymore?, a rundown of the classic novelizations of Shaft, Kevin hates Crank, Topsy the Elephant (cue the applause), science v wizardry, nose whistling, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and you're still too slow!

JFD465: The Pink Chiquitas, Raising Cain, Full Contact

May 17, 2019

Description:


Oh man, Junkies, we're back with another wacky week of random-ass films from the back isles of some forgotten video store.

Up first, Frank Stallone plays the son of a recently deceased private eye who is on the run from the Mexican mob. When he finds himself in the small town of Beamsville, the whole town is engrossed by a pink meteor that has landed in the town and is causing all the women to become sex-crazed Amazonians in The Pink Chiquitas from 1987.

Then, John Lithgow plays an oncologist with multiple personalities who is killing women and kidnapping children in a plot cooked up by his father (who may or may not also be a figment of his imagination) in Brian De Palma's Raising Cain from 1992.

And finally, Chow Yun-Fat and Anthony Wong play a couple of low-level criminals who join up with a trio of eccentric and sadistic thugs to pull off one last big heist. The punches, bullets and explosions are plentiful in the over-the-top Full Contact from 1992.

All this plus witty banter between friends, a slew of Junk Mail, sad Nerd News about Doris Day, the Honey I Shrunk the Kids re-make, this week's blu-rays and so much more.

JFD463: The Devils, Superstition, Opera

May 3, 2019

Description:

Don't be too slow, Junk Food Junkies!! You gotta go fast with Sonic, Dario, Kevin, Rusty, Parker, Sean, Oliver and the gang! It's a wild and weird PATREON-Picked episode this week!
Up first! Way back in the pre-9/11 days of yore, there was a movie called The Devils from 1971. A surprisingly high quotient of naked nuns (including Vanessa Redgrave) get mixed up in a plot to banish high-priest (Oliver Reed) from the church, and commit loads of sexual blasphemies along the way. Considering what really happens in real-world Christianity [note: 1], this is considered by some [note: 2] to be a refreshingly optimistic take on the church. Thanks to Chris B for picking it! [note 1: child rape; note 2: parker bowman]
Next up! It's the rarely-discussed 1982 (or 80-something, at least) Canadian (or Canadian-American, at least) semi-slasher Superstition, (or The Witch, sometimes). It's a movie we've watched and you'll hear about it. I can tell you this now: it's got some killer kill scenes. The rest is maybe a blur already. Thanks to Andreas for picking it!

Finally! It's a third movie: Opera, the 1987 feature from famed Italian horror master Dario Argento. This is one everyone's been requesting for just about forever, so let us just say we're very sorry. Thanks to Luke/Josh for picking it!

JFD462: The Cube, Bar-B-Que Movie, Freddy vs Jason vs Ash

Apr 26, 2019

Description:


Break out your basketball shorts because this week the JFD crew keeps it brief with three short films!  
Up first, in 1969 Jim Henson directed a surreal hour-long episode of  NBC Experiment in Television titled The Cube about a man trapped in a plain white room where various visitors attempt to drive him insane.
Then, in 1988, after the cancelation of the TV show Night Flight, Stuart Shapiro released Impact Video Magazine, a VHS compilation of music performances, stand-up comedy and weird film shorts, including Alex Winter's Bar-B-Que Movie (AKA Entering Texas), a super 8 home movie about a family on vacation who run afoul of The Butthole Surfers.
And finally, we take a look at Trent Duncan's 2013 fan film Freddy vs Jason vs Ash about a couple girls terrorized by three horror movie icons in the woods of Florida.
All this plus witty banter between friends, a slew of Junk Mail, news about James Wan, all the upcoming Stephen King adaptations you can handle, this week's blu-rays and so much more.

JFD460: Cube, Saw, The Collector

Apr 12, 2019

Description:

What happens when three dishelved, irritated podcasters are trapped in a never-ending episode of Junk Food Dinner filled with trap-like technical issues, without even the calming professionalism of Kevin Moss (out on vacation, presumably in Boston)? Well, the results are here and they're not pretty. At least we've got the talents of professional podcaster Mike Dikk (of Cigarette News, Retro Food Ghoul, VRTL Pros, Kissing Contest, and Border Boss fame) to compensate for all of the computer-based failures this Escape-ril episode contains.

Oh, and the movies? We kick off the first ever Escape-ril in the only ways that make any sense at all: with the first entries of the Cube, Saw, and Collector franchises! Help us break free by donloyding now!!
Up first! A perhaps undersung gem of the torture-porn subgenre of horror flicks, or just some cheap Canadian sleaze? We take a look at CUBE from 1997!
Next up! Somehow Kevin Moss has escaped our review of the much-discussed but never-reviewed SAW from 2004!
Finally! Mike Dikk brings us THE COLLECTOR, a Saw-like film from 2009, for reasons he'll explain very clearly!

All this plus another charmingly ramshackle introduction by amateur podcaster Parker Bowman, an immediate call-out of Kevin Moss and his sleepiness status, seasonal baseball chat from your favorite American podcasters, lots of theories and musings as to why Kevin is averse to Saw films, we read actual electronic mails with our eyeballs, Parker revealingly describes two boobs as "less than average", Sean's new catchphrase "that's not spaghetti!", unprecedented levels of technical difficulties, a modicum of wrestlechats (including requests for dead wrestlers), oh man this technology is getting difficult with us, Redbox reportage, Mike identifies his other podcasts by name and describes their content in general terms, Parker continues to avoid Ulthar's transnational touring company, god damnit this audio is broken, aliens versus cubes, the early strangulation death of John-o (is it Jon-oh?), Parker declares the reverse bear trap in Saw "the coolest fucking shit in the world", Sean literally curses this episode by complaining about the audio quality on Mike's own Saw podcast episode (or maybe it's Saw itself that is cursing us??), minor-key nose whistling, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and a whole lot more!

JFD459: Solaris, Pumpkinhead, American Satan

Apr 4, 2019

Description:


This week on Junk Food Dinner we left our movie picks up to the Patreon donors and the cruel hand of the Randomizer 5000 and ended up with three very different movies.

Up first, is the 1971 Russian science fiction classic Solaris. This film about an astronaut suffering from space madness is considered a masterpiece by fans of weighty, arty sci-fi but will Andrei Tarkovsky's aggressively slow pacing be too much for the JFD boys?

Then, Lance Henriksen summons a demon to get revenge on the teens who accidentally killed his son in Stan Winston's special effects heavy horror flick Pumpkinhead from 1988.

And finally, a post-hardcore emo band made up of Brits and Midwesterners move to L.A to make it big, but when things don't go as planned they make a deal with The Devil (Malcolm McDowell) to become mega-stars. But like all Faustian deals, things don't go as expected in American Satan from 2017.

All this plus witty banter between friends, a slew of Junk Mail, news about Young Charles, critiques of Nicholas Cage's clothing choices, this week's blu-rays and so much more.

JFD457: Heavyweights, It's Sleazy, American Hardcore

Mar 21, 2019

Description:

Prepare to be castrated in outer space, scumdogs! Junk Food Dinner is celebrating GWARch this year the only way we know how: with our good friend Travis Olgin of the world-famous GWARCast! It's a sleazy one.
Up first! Way back in the pre-9/11 days of yore, there was a movie called Heavyweights from 1995. A surprisingly high quotient of likable character actors (including Jerry Stiller), soon-to-be-famous comedic actors (like Kenan Thompson), and pre-fame super-scribes (Judd Apatow & Paul Feig), plus Skinny Weiner jokes pop up in this Disney-produced Ben Stiller kids movie about a fat camp. Don't worry about the title, it's just a single entendre.
Next up! It's GWAR's Jerry-Springer-esque talk show parody / simulated snuff film It's Sleazy, from the year 2000. Have you ever wanted to see a man chop off his skinny weiner on stage in front of a crowd of half-rate werewolfmen? We've got the video for you! Also: feat Slymenstra Hymen.

Finally! It's a third movie: American Hardcore: The History of American Punk Rock 1980-1986, which is exactly what the title suggests. Check it out for the Bad Brains, stick around for the unexpected Moby.


All this plus more GWAR chat than you can handle, Feldman in Neverland, the Zombie Dog Celebrity Scene, horror comedy musical review, the time Kevin didn't get to party with Meatloaf or Fairuza Balk, the mystery of a the third film recommendation, the death of shared universes, some wild call-in fiascos, a double dose of sad musical nerd news and a single heaping of non-musical sad nerd news, how to pronounce (and spell!) our guest's name, the inventor of the Brillo pad, somebody from Pete & Pete, somehow nobody makes a Goldberg/Spear joke, four men drool over Ben Stiller's muscles, more fun with casual racism in a Disney film, cigarette violence, krazy kall-ins, a brand-new plea for your hard-earned dollars, bad parenting, embarassing admissions, the fear of god, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and a whole lot more!

JFD456: Bachelor Party, Hamburger: The Motion Picture, Roller Town

Mar 15, 2019

Description:


Junk Food Dinner gets zany this week with three goofy comedies picked by our Dom Deluise Patreon Donors!

Up first, Tom Hanks plays a slacker about to get married to rich girl Tawny Kitaen but before he does his friends (Michael Dudikoff, Barry Diamond, Gary Grossman, and Adrian Zmed) decide to throw a wild stag bash in the 1984 comedy Bachelor Party.

Then, Leigh McCloskey plays a dude so attractive he keeps getting kicked out of college for lude conduct with co-eds. In order to get his inheritance he must graduate, so he enrolls in Buster Burger University to learn the ins and outs of fast food. But strict drill sergeant Dick Butkus and a bevy of sexy babes (Randi Brooks, Debra Blee, Maria Richwine) won't make it easy in Hamburger: The Motion Picture from 1986.

And finally, Canadian sketch troupe Picnicface bring us a parody of roller disco movies in Roller Town from 2011 about an orphan roller enthusiast in love with a pretty roller girl and their quest to save their local roller rink from gangsters.

All this plus witty banter between friends, theme park wetness, 24-hour Sci-Fi marathons, Joe Bob Briggs, Grandpa Jim calls in, SxSW Film news, this week's blu-rays and so much more.

JFD455: Gun Crazy, In a Lonely Place, Across 110th Street

Mar 8, 2019

Description:

Grab a pack of Lucky Strikes and a stiff drink. It's Noir Week -- Niorch Week, to be exact.

First, two gun-obsessed lovers go on a crime spree after meeting at the circus -- as you do -- in "Gun Crazy" from 1950.

Next, Humphrey Bogart is a angry, jaded writer who's accused of murder and only the love of a brassy dame can fix him. Or can it? "In a Lonely Place" from 1950.

Finally, a Harlem robbery leads to a falling house of cards and a bunch of racism-filled murder sprees in "Across 110th Street" from 1972.

All this plus Nerd News, Voice Mails, DVDs, will Parker boycott Captain Marvel? How sleepy is Kevin exactly? And who among us is guilty of Freado picking?

JFD454: Forbidden Planet, Dr. Goldfoot and Bikini Machine, Brain 17

Mar 1, 2019

Description:

The only logical conclusion to our thrilling month of Science Fiction based podcasting is precisely what will be delivered to you this week, in the form of this: a Robot Theme Show. Let's get metallic!
Up first! Way back in the pre-9/11 days of yore, there was a movie called Forbidden Planet from 1956. It had a Brown-haired Leslie Nielsen, and strange sexual politics, and you were there, and you were there, and you were there...
Next up! It's 1965's Dr. Goldfoot and Bikini Machine, a movie with a title so implausible only AIP could've produced it. And would you believe that your charming hosts argue about whether or not it's a sci-fi film? Feat Vinnie Price, Frank Avalon, babes.

Finally! It's a third movie: Brain 17, which probably you ain't heard of, but maybe you've heard of it's bigger brother Daitetsujin 17. This 1982 feature is a recut of an earlier 1977 Toei-produced TV series, and features a whole horde of cheaply made Japanese giant robots tripping over themselves/cities. Who are the real monsters? It might be the dub voice actors.


All this plus Parker's journalistic prowess reaps rewards, Sean stereotypes the local Japanese population, Parker's computer makes Windows sounds on the recording now and there's nothing on earth that can stop it, a really wild amount of dishwashing ambience, yet another one of those nights where Sean contemplates how he's wasted his life, more good recommendations from The Fallen One, seriously there's a whole ambient noise backstory going on in this episode and the entire plotline of it is centered around pot-scrubbing, an animated series based on your favorite Mogwai-based horror franchise, Feldmanspotting, should Gene Simmons fornicate a replicant in an arena?, Parker makes a home video selection blunder that leads to a classic disrespect situation, Kevin calls a movie a Drive-In Classic, for sure something is getting broken in the background noise there - like a window maybe - who knows?, Sean gets two movies mixed up in his mind, more mouse clicking noises than normal from reasons that remain largely mysterious, the insane outer-space sexual politics (of outer space!), restrictive pornography laws aboard space-cruises for space-men, Parker declares a movie should be 10 to 15 minutes shorter, shoe-horned garage-rock black-face bands, Parker Bowman falls in love with Frankie Avalon, teen wolf has nards, "suddenly: one year later", fake spy beards, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and a whole lot more!

JFD453: The Outer Limits (The Sixth Finger, The Zanti Misfits, The Mutant)

Feb 22, 2019

Description:


There is nothing wrong with your smartphone. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery of Sci-Fi-ebruary which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits.

This week, we dive into three classic episodes from the black & white, creature-heavy science fiction television show that brought monsters and aliens into American homes in the 1960's.

Up first, a scientist experiments on a man in an effort to speed up evolution with unexpected results in The Sixth Finger from 1963.

Then, a race of bug-like aliens decide to dispose of their undesirables on planet Earth in The Zanti Misfits also from 1963.

And finally, the crew of an expedition to another planet begins to plot against the mind-reading, bug-eyed captain (played by Warren Oates!) in The Mutant from 1964.

All this plus witty banter between friends, roller coasters chat, $40 VHS mystery packs, the end of blu-ray players?, Kung-Fu Hustle love, this week's blu-rays and so much more.

JFD's March Movie Schedule!

Feb 19, 2019

Description:

Where does the time go?

We're celebrating going into 10 motherfucking years of JFD this month. This is probably the longest any of us have ever done anything in our lives.

And speaking for myself, I wouldn't have wanted to spend a decade of my life talking about good movies, bad movies, Corey Feldman movies, ghoul movies or Eastern European art movies with anyone other than these four JFD co-hosts. Kevin, Sean, Mark and Rusty are four dudes I've experienced the best of times with (the time we all watched "Blow Out") and the worst of times with (the times we watched "Slaughtered Vomit Dolls"). They're four of the best dudes I have ever known and it's been an honor and a pleasure to be subjected to the gamut of human art and emotion with them.

And I also want to thank anyone who's ever listened. Especially if you're from some country I've never been to or a town I've never heard of (even British ones). It's still weird to me that anyone would want to listen to us talk about sliced thumb or engage in Face to Face Chat or discuss who is or isn't the rats of humans and it blows my mind that these things have connected us with folks in a way that only we know about. It's like a secret club where you whisper, "Are you gonna be a butthole or are you going to let me drink" and someone slides open a velvet curtain and welcomes you.

Here's to the 10th year of JFD!
-Parker

Feb 15, 2019

Description:

Sci-Fi-Ebruary rolls along in this, and every, dimension with three flicks chosen by our buddies on Patreon.

First, due to some cosmic bullshit, ants get really, really smart and the only thing stopping them from taking over the world is some British dude and some other dude in 1974's "Phase IV," directed by Saul Bass.

Next, Brit Marling stars as would-be future scientist who's life is derailed during a drunk driving accident. To make matters worse, a whole new planet has suddenly emerged in 2011's "Another Earth."

Finally, a mentally ill man kidnaps a businessman he thinks is actually an alien mastermind in the South Korean flick, "Save the Green Planet" from 2003.

All this plus Nerd News, DVDs, a sweet Sweetman song, Karaszewski sightings, Sleepy Moss, other voicemails, a JFD roadtrip, the Insane Kevin Posse and so so so much more!

JFD451: Unbreakable, Split, Glass

Feb 7, 2019

Description:

If you've survived the Polar Vortex, there's only one possible explanation: your burning desire to hear your charming JFD hosts chat about these three M. Night Shyamalan films has kept you just toasty warm enough for your heart to keep beating. And we've got good news for you, living being: your avoidance of death was well worth it this week. This ep's a doozy.
Up first! Way back in the pre-9/11 days of yore, a young man named M. Night Shyamalan crafted a superhero feature unlike most before it, a little film that would be come to be known as Unbreakable from 2000! Bruce Willies survives a wild train crash (with nary a scratch), which puts him in the sights of a mysterious (EVIL?!) stranger played by Samuel L. Jackson.
Next up! It's 2016's Split, as directed by M. Night Shyamalan. It's not the other movie called Split from the same year or the year after or before. Make sure you're on the same page as us here. We're talking about the one where James McAvoy kidnaps a few young women and it turns out he's got a bunch of multiple/split personalities, each more terrifying than the next (except for some of them). Be sure that's the Split you've got in mind when you pop this podcast episode into your hi-fi.

Finally! It's a third movie: Glass, which is literally still in theatres right now today as I write this, if you can even believe it. This is M. Night Shyamalan's thrilling conclusion to the loose trilogy formed by the above two features, and it features Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy, all together on-screen at once in the meeting of the minds that all filmgoing audiences have been begging for with bated breath.


All this plus watchin' Glassmen in certain circles, super fun fly facts (or was it superfly fun facts?), the names and identities of who picked the movies for the show this week, are these movies even sci-fi?, some movie website called Letterboxd that Kevin ain't even heard of yet, "now who's old?", Eurocentric ethnotypes, a non-negative quantity of audio drops, Parker gets actually heated at Sean in the junkmails segment, RIP Dick Miller, a Seinlanguage shout-out, does Kevin Make An Appearance?, automatic lipstick mechanisms, Sean learns his lesson again about the terrors of filmgoing at the AMC Monterey Park location, mental health TED talks, our weekly news but zero Blu-ray Picks, what even is a Skype?, no mention of ride-giving, crunkle-junked beats and a whole lot more!

JFD450: The Fearless Hyena, Armour of God, The Medallion

Feb 1, 2019

Description:


It's ass kickin' time, kids. We close out the month by celebrating Jackie Chan-uary and watching three flicks from three distinct eras from the greatest stuntman of all time!

Up first, Jackie Chan makes his directorial debut with The Fearless Hyena from 1979. This classic wuxia flick has Jackie in prime physical shape and really hamming it up as a goofball trying to avenge the murder of his grandfather.

Next, we examine one of Chan's big-budget Hong Kong action flicks, Armour of God from 1986. Here we get not only great martial arts, but insane stunt work both on foot and by car. Jackie is forced to infiltrate a cult of horny monks in order to save his ex-girlfriend all while trying to recover the missing pieces of an ancient suit of armor.

Sci-Fi-Ebruary Movie Schedule!

Jan 23, 2019

Description:

Welcome to the World of Tomorrow!

It's Sci-Fi-Ebruary again, space cadets! And we are boldly going where no podcasters have ever gone before. Or maybe they have. We don't really pay attention to other podcasts now that IllCon is over.

JFD448: Squalor Motel, Babyface 2, Sex and the Single Alien

Jan 18, 2019

Description:

What kinda pornos are we watching in here? Who are you, Kevin's neighbor? Well, it's Happy Nude Year this week on the podcast, so please afford us this plausible excuse for all the pornography we're watching. We promise to ask Jesus for mercy.
Up first! It's a classic undersung gem of sleazoid porno: Kim Christy's Squalor Motel from 1985! Colleen Brennan, Desiree Lane, Tantala Ray and Jamie Gillis (among others) feature in this new-wave/punk-rock/rinse-dream-y tale of bound pig fuckers in a Reptile Room at a rancid roadside flophouse. Be glad you didn't stumble on this one as a kid, so you can enjoy it more fully and responsibly as an adult.
Next up! It's 1986's Babyface 2, an Alex De Renzy sequel to his own 1977 golden age porno, a celebration of youthful exuberance, and boobs. Lois Ayres, Kristara Barrington, Jerry Butler, Tom Byron and friends star in this freewheeling hardcore feature until Jamie Gillis (yet again) pops up to turn a living room into a Poltergeist house. It's a fun, weird time.

Finally! It's a third movie: Sex and the Single Alien, which does qualify as a movie technically, and did see the light of day in 1993. It's a non-sexual (surprise!) entrant into the genre of alien-based features with minimal/no aliens on-screen. This time: there's a strip club. If you're hankering for an Up All Night vibe, you've probably put up with worse.


All this plus watchin' pornos in certain circles, what kinda Nerd News y'all talkin' about in there?, Parker's hot tumblr takes, everyone's continued strong feelings about the new Suspiria, automatic fleshlight dystopias, even more candid praise for the longboys of Mississippi, triple x blue movie, Kevin loves Letterboxd (and hates us), Kevin reads The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin shows interest in a brutal hardcore roughie, Zip-a-dee-deadpool, Sean slanders Disney again, nihilistic trash, our plan to sue Amazon, our weekly news & Blu-ray Picks, what even is a Skype?, no mention of ride-giving, the sexiest beats and a whole lot more!

JFD Rewind Episode #5 - New Year's Bootleg Edition

Jan 1, 2019

Description:


We may live in even more horrible times, but your JFD boys have you covered in terms of retroactively produced podcast content, at least for this week. Bust out your enthusiasm generators yet again, because it's time, sadly, for another clip show to help you forget about the year that was! And this time, none of the content is legally ours to distribute!

So it's come to this again: yet another Junk Food Dinner clip show. This week on Junk Food Dinner Rewind: a carefully curated collection of bootlegged podcasting audio. And don't worry - it's got barely any original content, and you won't feel even slightly guilty having skipped it. In fact, you're better off pretending this never happened.

All this plus witty banter between friends, witty banter between Freados, zero Nerd Newsies, no week's DVD & blu-ray releases, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, robot voices, musical interludes, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a little bit more!

JFD446: Tourist Trap (Audio Commentary)

Dec 28, 2018

Description:

We're celebrating our 1,300th movie reviewed on the show with an audio commentary voted on by the Junkies!

We're doing Tourist Trap from 1979! David Schmoeller directs this tale of wild teenagers stuck in rural Texas ... or California? Or maybe Arkansas? ... at a tourist trap full of creepy mannequins and even creepier Civil War stuff!

Cue up your copy of the film and watch the movie along with us! Count the Puppet Master references by taking shots!

JFD445: Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, A Smoky Mountain Christmas, Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys

Dec 20, 2018

Description:

It's Christmas at the JFD offices, and somebody's spiked the eggnog. Our picks are getting mixed up and our signals are getting crossed. How'd we end up with this trio of TV movies, you ask? Get ready for a holiday-themed podcasting experience like none other!
Up first! It's a classic undersung gem of holiday muppetry: Jim Henson's Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas from 1977! It's supposedly the tale of an otter and his poor single mother, but everybody knows it's really about that wild snake and his rock and roll band.
Next up! It's 1986's A Smoky Mountain Christmas, which as you would expect is of course a made for TV movie starring Dolly Parton, Dan Hedeya, and Lee Majors. Oh, and it's got a Mountain Man (played by Lee Majors).

Finally! It's a third movie: Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys, which does qualify as a movie technically, and did see the light of day in 2004. It's a non-canonical (surprise!) entrant into the series of puppet-based horror films. This time: it's Christmas. Also: they got the Feldman. And we gotta deal with it.


All this plus A Classic X-mas Mixup, Sean watches movies nobody cares about, Parker watches movies everyone hates, Kevin watches Gremlins, an interesting amount of unidentified background noise, reasonable rates on calls to the North Pole, did anyone Freado a pick this year?, Little Nemo related memories, Parker sounds like he might have a cold (based on sneezes), a surprising amount of Brexit support, Parker is blocked by Edgar Wright on Twitter, the magic is still real for some of us, Kevin drops the phrase "technical muppetry" with little to no fanfare, a Smoky Mountain No-No, our weekly news & Blu-ray Picks, what even is a Skype?, no mention of ride-giving, holiday beats and a whole lot more!

Then, a personal assistant (Lola Kirke) to a Hollywood starlet (Zoë Kravitz) gets wrapped up in a bizzare murder mystery in Gemini.

JFD442: Mandy, Slice, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

Nov 30, 2018

Description:

With Sean still out of the country, your Junk Food Dinner boys have reached out to the newly crowned King of the Heartland, former movie-ghoul and long-time friend of the show Mike Dikk (of Virtual Pros podcast fame and more) to fill in. Together, we explore the brave new worlds presented by three films released in this very year of 2018.
Up first! It's the movie every cult movie fan is talking about / disagreeing over: Mandy from 2018! We're all very aware of Mike McBeardo McPadden's takes on this surreal revenge fantasy thriller from Canadian director Panos Cosmatos (son of the dude who directed COBRA), but what about our takes? Can we possibly find anything to agree about in regards to this film, or even how much Nic Cage is too much Nic Cage? Donloyd and listen.
Next up! If you've ever wanted to see Zazie Beetz star in a movie from director Austin Vesely, then 2018's Slice is the movie for you. It's the age old tale of Chance the Rapper and his pizza delivery homeboys getting wrapped up in a criminal mystery around town. We'll give you all of our opinions on this movie, free of charge, when you listen to our podcast.

Finally! It's a third movie: Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich from 2018. One of the several Puppet Master movies released in recent years within a series of confusing timelines, alternate universes, and odd casting choices, will this one (the one with Tom Lennon) stand out above the pack of toy-based Charles Band productions? We know already and you'll find out soon.


All this plus slow-purge jerk-offs, dangerous episodes, tributes to fallen comrades, off-mic coughs, knocks on doors, an interesting fidelity overall, caller corrections, faith-based healing, our weekly news & Blu-ray Picks, what even is a Skype?, no mention of ride-giving, snazzy beats and a whole lot more!

JFD441: Young Einstein, Reckless Kelly, Mr. Accident

Nov 21, 2018

Description:


Junk Food Dinner is here to help you celebrate Thanksgiving with three Australian turkeys, compliments of wacky Aussie phenomenon Yahoo Serious. And in order to properly contextualize the work of Mr. Serious, we are joined by actual Australian and long-time listener/caller Tom from Adelaide!

Up first, we check out the film that put Yahoo Serious on the map and made him an international superstar, Young Einstein from 1988. In this intentionally fictional account of Albert Einstein's life, Serious plays him as a Tasmanian apple farmer who is trying to put bubbles into beer, invent surfing and create rock 'n roll.

Next, in Yahoo's next flick, he again attempts to retell the story of an actual person, this time infamous Australian outlaw Ned Kelly, in a slapstick and cartoonish manner in Reckless Kelly from 1993.

And finally, in his third and final film, Yahoo Serious plays an mishap-prone handy man who works at an egg factory and falls in love with an equally goofy girl in Mr. Accident from 2000.

All this plus witty banter between friends, tales from the Outback, the new Leprechaun trailer, vape noises, Nerd News, blu-rays and so much more.

Nov 8, 2018

Description:

With Halloween out of the way, your Junk Food Dinner boys are ready to celebrate Hallo-WEEN, a new experience in Ween-themed cinematic chats. So put down that crucial squeegie, pick up a slice of taylor ham, and get ready for an audiovisual trip down memory lane you'll never remember!
Up first! It's a sketch. It's a movie. It's a person of indeterminite biological gender. It's Pat from 1994! This Saturday Night Live feature might be a true innovator in the field of SNL movies being awful. Can an uncredited script assist from a young Quentin Tarantino save things? We'll tell ya!
Next up! If you've ever been a young Mormon man in Los Angeles getting accidentally mixed up in the porno business, then you'll know exactly just how true to life Matt Stone and Trey Parker's Orgazmo from 1999 is. And if you haven't yet, well, there's still time.

Finally! It's a third movie with the band WEEN on the soundtrack (yes, that was our theme), and that movie is of course Run Ronnie Run from 2003. Shot years earlier, a troubled post production delayed this Mr Show movie until the world was just ready for another Joe Dirt adjacent comedy. But does it have the yuks?


All this plus one of your trusty hosts is kicked in the dick with a terrible headcold, a collection of saltiness factors, a critical update on the view from the parking lot of the Tease & Please Strip Club, Kevin half-reviews Suspiria (2018), we call out Jake Fogelnest on his inappropriate behavior, low-key gripes about Jock Jams of yesteryear, things that are 'understandable', unknown callers tell us what kinda pornos they're watchin' in there, long-form evening adventures with a man called Travis, the long-awaited reviews of Del Taco and In N Out Burger provided by noted food eater Kevin Moss, Parker Bowman's continued reviews of the latest GWAR album, pixels for propaganda, why not enjoy a cartoon man peeing on a monkey?, our weekly news & Blu-ray Picks, Skype presents a phantom echo, all rides offered are in the past tense, weenie beats and a whole lot more!

JFD437: Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, Son of Frankenstein

Oct 25, 2018

Up first, we take a look at the original 1931 classic Frankenstein. Directed by James Whale and starring Boris Karloff as the iconic monster and Colin Clive as the mad doctor that creates him!

Then, at the behest of the even madder Dr. Pretorius, Dr. Frankenstein assembles a wife for the monster, who has now learned to talk, in the 1935 sequel The Bride of Frankenstein.

Finally, years after the events of the first two films, Dr. Frankenstein's son (Basil Rathbone), returns to his father's castle and finds Ygor (Bela Lugosi) and the monster waiting for him in Son of Frankenstein from 1939

All this plus witty banter between friends, pumpkin carving tips, scared children in Half Moon Bay, LeBron James and Jason, who are the real monsters, fang count its, Nerd News, blu-rays and so much more.

JFD436: Fright Night (1985), Fright Night Part II, Fright Night (2011)

Oct 18, 2018

Description:

Get ready to scream your head off, Junk Food Junkies, with your favorite trio of Vampire Next Door flicks ever crammed into a single franchise umbrella. It's our in-depth take on the world-renowned intellectual property licensing opportunity FRIGHT NIGHT (presented by DreamWorks Pictures). And to top it off, we're joined by none other than hatless Jackson Stewart, director of Beyond the Gates and known Fright Night aficionado!
Up first! It's not the Ferrel-based feature you're thinking. It's the original videostore classic, 1985's Fright Night. Written and directed by Tom Holland, this classic tale of teenage vampire suburbia paranoia is one we're all excited to chat about.
Next up! It's that weird 1988 sequel, Fright Night Part II that some folks inexplicably have a soft spot for. But will any of your JFD hosts and/or guests fall under that inexplicable mold? Tune in to find out. It's the only way.

Finally! It's the completely newer and more recently released version of this classic film tale, 2011's Fright Night. I'll tell ya it stars Colin Farrell and a buncha other people but I'm too tired to write much more on the subject. It's a remake of the one you know and love, but with more CGI blood.


All this plus all the jointed limbs you could want, semi-extended Candy Corn chats, we see you Fairborn Ohio, Kevin reveals his #1 Halloween candy go-to snack, Parker gets testy about listicles, yet another Valiant Comics reference, the scary implications of podcasting to a public audience of all ages (aka Kevin curses at children), jokes about the Disney corporation, distant rumblings of spooky concerts, a trip to the Magic Manor at Eastwind Mall, a classic Ragsdale defense, werewolf transformations by Rick "James" Baker, an unfair attack on the late Sir Christopher Lee, TCM Piracy Cruise lines, an unexplained resurgence in the popularization of the Shadmock theory, a passing reference to aspect ratios, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, mild Skype noises, rides offered (and taken), splunky beats and a whole lot more!

JFD435: The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Ghostwatch, Event Horizon

Oct 12, 2018

Description:


This week on JFD, it's the second week of Schlocktober and we're partying with three movies picked by our world class Patreon donors.
Up first, Vincent Price plays a music and theology-loving mad man who is exacting revenge on a group of doctors who couldn't save his wife in 1971's The Abominable Dr. Phibes from AIP.
Then, we watch a 1992 British television special called Ghostwatch where actual BBC presenters pretended to be investigating a haunted house on Halloween and managed to fool a good portion of the UK viewing audience in the process.
And finally, Sam Neill and Laurence Fishburn lead a crew of space explorers on a mission to track down a lost space vessel. But when they find it, it turns out the ship is haunted and causes some crazy reactions from the crew in Event Horizon from 1997.
All this plus witty banter between friends, difficulty pronouncing the word "abominable", Hell Fest chat, Travis from GWARcast calls in, JoBeth boners, Halloween sequel updates, Juggalo dropkicks, Nerd News, blu-rays and so much more.

JFD434: Poltergeist 1-3

Oct 4, 2018

Description:

We're here!!

The ninth annual Schlocktober begins this week, but this episode was built on an ancient burial ground!

First, in an idyllic suburb, ghosts use the static between TV channels to talk to a young girl in Tobe Hooper's "Poltergeist."

Next, the ghosts track down Carole Anne and her family and only vaguely racist depictions of Native Americans can save them in "Poltergeist 2: The Other Side."

Finally, Carole Anne moves in with Nancy Allen in her Chicago skyrise, but still has ghost problems in Poltergeist 3.

All this, plus ICP chat, clowns, DVDs, Nerd News, we find out who's a kid, Night of the Living Dead's birthday, Halloween wishes and so much more!

JFD433: Twister, The Lure, Bone Tomahawk

Sep 28, 2018

Description:

We LOVE our Patreon donors, who keep this ramshackle little podcasting endeavor afloat week after hellish week. But how can we possibly love all of the movies they're making us review? Forgive us, listeners, if we get a little randy with your picks this week!
Up first! It's not the tornado-based feature you're thinking. It's Twister - no, not that one. This patreon-picked feature stars Crispin Glover, Harry Dean Stanton, and a fairly young Dylan McDermott. It's about a family with some kind of issues or something!
Next up! It's that weird Polish mermaid movie we've been chatting about for awhile, The Lure (from 2015). This weird, dark musical love story has got some shadows of ghoul summer peaking up from the shallows.

Finally! It's the completely rad Bone Tomahawk, also from 2015! Everybody in the world loves this movie, and you will too, so come listen to us chat about it for a bit!


All this plus weird dark things coming to your television, Harry Dean Stanton from The Avengers, Kevin falls in love with a nightclub, Sean gets mean with one of the Wilsons, chop-socky remix phases, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, mild Skype noises, no rides offered (and none taken), cathode ray tubes, funky beats and a whole lot more!

JFD432: Predator, Predator 2, The Predator

Sep 21, 2018

Description:


This week we pay tribute to one ugly motherfucker. That's right it's Predator week here on JFD! We're diving into all things Predator, including Hollywood's latest attempt to make space dreadlocks cool.

Up first, it's the video store classic that started it all. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers lead a team of elite badasses into the Central American jungle on a rescue/assassination mission, but get out-badassed by an alien who's only here to hunt humans in 1987's Predator.

Then, the Predator returns (but Arnold doesn't) and this time he's out of the jungle and into the city in Predator 2 from 1990. Danny Glover plays a hard-boiled cop trying to bust cartoonish Colombian and Jamaican gangs but finds out he has bigger fish to fry when the Predator starts killing them first.

And finally, Shane Black (who played Hawkins in the original Predator) directs the latest installment in the franchise with The Predator from 2018. In this one The Predators and their alien dogs come to Earth looking for autistic kids' DNA before global warming kills everyone. Seriously.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Sean's experience trying to get a sneak peek at the new Halloween movie, Parker's future in butter sculpting, chord issues, stories about standing in lines, Nerd News, blu-rays and so much more.

Ghoul Summer is over and we get to relax with a Cool Summer!

First, a group of misfits (like Billy Jacoby and Jewel Shepard) head into the wilderness for the summer in "Party Camp" from 1987.

JFD430: Breaking Point, Threads, Lunatic

Sep 7, 2018

Description:

It's the final week of Ghoul Summer for this year, and maybe forever if Ghoul Summer heel Kevin Moss gets his way. But can even he stomach this week's trio of ghoulish flicks before making that kind of executive decision? Tune out for the thrilling conclusion to this arbitrary cliffhanger.
Up first! It's another gritty and gross hardcore porno slash exploitation slash rape slash murder film from Sweden, directed by that dude who did Thriller: A Cruel Picture (aka They Call Her One Eye). That's what you've always wanted in a Ghoul Summer flick, right? Not to be confused with the Bo Svenson movie of the same name, it's Breaking Point (from 1975)! An outsourced pick from our pal Justin, will this wildcard play become a Ghoul Summer classic?

Next up! It's Ted Turner's favorite British TV movie about a theoretical nuclear strike on Sheffield England, Threads (from 1984). It's completely ghoulish and nothing more or less. Not suggested by any Justins.

Finally! It's the Ghoul Summer film some JFD hosts are calling "better than Beach 24" - of course, we're talking about the SOV serial killing obscurity Lunatic (from 1999 according to IMDB). It's got more low-budget breast augmentation than a Monday in Beverly Hills. And it was totally recommended by a Justin.

All this plus allusions to out of state felonies, abrupt FaceTime refusals, intense couch-based labor pains, the Buffy Slot Machine report, yet again we produce another signature Fast Food Roundup, basement atmospheres, Cigarette News, the boundaries of Brody Stevens' the Triangle, a special Species report, Thriller-based digressions, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, mild Skype noises, some rides offered (and taken), genuine wonderment, friendly sea serpents and a whole lot more!

JFD429: Africa: Blood and Guts, There's Something About The Johnsons, Found

Aug 24, 2018

Description:


Well, it's that time of year again, creeps, lock yourself in the basement, sharpen your razor blades and turn off the lights because it's Ghoul Summer!

And this week, since Kevin chickened out, we are joined by Derrick from the All The Gimmicks podcast!

Up first we dig into the gruesome world of animal poaching, tribal rituals and imperialism with the mondo documentary film Africa: Blood and Guts from 1966.

Then, we find out what happens when a young man loves his father... too much in the short film There's Something About The Johnsons from 2011.

And finally, things get extra ghoulish when a young boy finds out his troubled brother is a serial killer in the low-budget horror flick Found from 2012.

All this plus shameless shilling, Ghoul Summer t-shirt talk, ghoulish Nerd News, problematic points of view and so much more!

JFD427: The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini, Cheerleaders Beach Party, Beach 24

Aug 8, 2018

Description:

It's Junk Food Dinner's Beach Party Bonanza this week, so break out the surfboards and meet us down by the old Frankie Avalon place for a never-ending evening filled big waves, big babes, and big fun. Embiggen your filmic horizons with another ramshackle selection of movies that may or may not even adhere to the prescribed theme! Hear the sounds of gentle Hawaiian guitars mixing in the ocean breeze! Be surprised by what some consider entertainment! It's an episode of JFD you'll never forget.
And how better to celebrate a Beach Party week on the show than to sit down for a lengthy chat with Douglas Burke, director of SURFER (aka Surfer: Teen Confronts Fear)? Stick through our movie reviews to hear this life-affirming interview at the end of the episode, and then check out his website. There's nothing more fun in the summertime than supporting independent cinema.
But first! It's 1966 and the Beach Party series of films is due for another entry, but the beaches are closed. What's a young Sam Arkoff and the boys at AIP to do?! Why, they've got it! They'll just film this here picture at the old abandoned house on the hill, the one which Mrs Cecily used to own? Yes, that'll do. They'll even get Basil Rathbone, Boris Karloff, Nancy Sinatra, and a whole host of others to join them for their completely beach-free but not at all insanity-free Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (from 1966)!

Next up! We've got the beach! See the kids just getting out of school? They can't wait to hang out and be cool - hang around 'til quarter after twelve, at a Cheerleader's Beach Party (from 1978). Although it's debatable whether any beach-based partying actually occurs, what is very certain is that these 70's cheerleaders sure were up to some sexual hijinks. Written by seasoned porno & sex-comedy specialist Chuck Vincent.

Finally! What's more enticing than a 59-minute Nigerian Beach Party film? Well, you'll just have to hear our review of Beach 24 (from 2015) to find out. Directed by, produced by and starring Emmanuel Emumahdu. Also starring Cha Cha Eke Fanni, JNR Pope, Prince Eke, Denrele Edun, Ik Ogbonna, Daniel Lloyd, Sharon Frances and Anna Ebele Patricks. WATCH IT YOURSELF NOW (for free on YouTube)!

All this plus steel drums, tropical breezes, chattering seabirds, Hawaiian percussion, rolling waves, surf guitar, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, mild Skype noises, no rides offered (or taken), off-mic nose whistling, genuine wonderment, deadly sea serpents and a whole lot more!

JFD426: House II, Dangerous Men, The Dragon Lives Again

Aug 3, 2018

Description:


Kevin's out this week so we're joined by Parker's Pool Party Radio cohort Jason Frisbie in New York and Jason's friend Cotton from Little Rock.

Up first, the second film in the House franchise takes a decidedly different turn with new characters and a new house but things get even weirder as Jesse (Arye Gross) and his girlfriend Kate (Lar Park Lincoln) move into a house haunted by several strange ghost, including some of Jesse's deceased relatives in House II: The Second Story from 1986.

Then, Iranian architect-turned-low budget fimmaker Jahangir Salehi Yeganehrad (under the pseudonym John S. Rad) brings us Dangerous Men, a movie that began filming in 1985 but never saw a large release until 30 years later in 2015 when Drafthouse films brought this crazy flick about a woman who goes on a revenge-fueled killing spree after her boyfriend is murdered to a wide audience.

Finally, one of the most notorious "Bruceploitation" films The Dragon Lives Again from 197, in which Bruce Lee (played unconvincingly by Siu-Lung Leung) returns from the grave and teams up with The One-Armed Swordsman, Kain from Kung-Fu and Popeye the Sailor Man to fight Zatoichi (the blind swordsman), James Bond, The Godfather, Clint Eastwood, The Exorcist, Emmanuelle and Dracula!

All this plus updates on Freado's text messages, Mission Impossible impressions, H.P. Lovecraft streaming service ideas, Breen on Screen, your new favorite entry in the Buddies series and so much more!

JFD424: The World's Greatest Sinner, Hannie Caulder, The Wages of Fear

Jul 18, 2018

Description:

This week, podcast impresario Parker Bowman has taken residency in New Vegas, leaving Kevin and Sean to fend for themselves. Not to fear, however, as they are joined by fabulous first-timer Chris Karnes, of JFD theme song fame! Donloyd now to hear our burning hot takes on three bizarre flicks!
Firstly! If you've never sinned before, you might not be ready for The World's Greatest Sinner, from 1962. It's a film starring Timothy Carey, the meanest creature you ever seen. He's rotten to the core - honey, he's no beginner. He's the world's greatest sinner.

Secondly! She was a fine girl, and she could get down with the get down (all the way down), but there's no chance Hannie Caulder from 1971 is gonna do yer laundry! She's a tough old-west broad who'll cut up any wild bunch of guys, even if said bunch is composed at least partially of Ernest Borgnine's bare chest. Raquel Welch stars in this rape-revenge cowgirl flick from the director of Suburban Commando.

Thirdly! Wages of Fear from 1953; the bold & intelligent masters of the road with their secret language, and their giant over-sized mechanical trans-continental hobby horse. This black & white French grampa flick is actually a color-flashing, thunder-crashing, dynamite machine.

All this plus some Joe Bob Briggs Marathon Updates, unexpected twists & turns, Wright State Mysteries at Hangar 13, we talk about that party with a hole in the wall again, the real Last Blockbuster Video, unapologetic Kevin, Whoopi for Prez, Sean calls a movie "a piece", Ernest Borgnine's theoretical nipples, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, varying bodysounds, no rides offered (or taken), off-mic nose whistling, imitation wonderment, muppet baby snakes and a whole lot more!

JFD423: Blow-Up, Blue Vengeance, American Angels: Baptism of Blood

Jul 13, 2018

Description:


Break out your vintage camera, your old heavy metal records and your female wrestling tapes because this episode of JFD really has something for everyone!
Up first, Michelangelo Antonioni directs his first English-language flick about a photographer in swinging 60's London (played by David Hemmings) who captures, what appears to be a murder, while taking pictures in the park in Blow-Up from 1966.
Next, a cop teams up with a punk rock photographer to track down an escaped mental patient who's going around New York City killing members of his favorite heavy metal band when they fail to join him in his Satanic pact in Blue Vengeance from 1989.
And finally, a stripper turns pro-wrestler in the 1989 flick American Angels: Baptism of Blood. This movie is filled with female wrestling, midgets and long butts and is from the husband/wife directing team that brought us Gatorbait and Rocktober Blood.
All this plus DisneyLand chat, Netflix nostalgia, Nic Refn's latest vanity project, Y'all Got Species calls and so much more!

JFD421: Terror of Tiny Town, Fastest Guitar Alive, Oblivion

Jun 27, 2018

Description:

Once upon a time, the West was Weird. And we were there. This podcast's proof!
Firstly! Oh no, are things already stopping this low? We review the all-midget, all-musical cowboy fiasco The Terror of Tiny Town, from 1938. Results are about what you'd expect.

Secondly! It's a weird day when Roy Orbison decides to star as a confederate bank robber with a guitar that transforms into a gun. And that day is the day they made The Fastest Guitar Alive from 1967. And we have it on good authority it was just that single day.

Thirdly! We get caught in the Oblivion fever currently sweeping the nation, or something. You know, that 1994 Full Moon movie with the sick cast of weirdos. It's got a lizard man in the desert, what more do you want?

All this plus some real wet stuff, witty banter between pals, summertime fun, the Tommy Wiseau update, videotapes without covers, impending Vinegar Syndrome restoration speculations, a rousingly on-topic round of listener Junk Mail including the triumphant return of Kyle from Kentucky, a case of the Skypiness, twice the amount of news-segment based controversies than other podcasts provide, some real Svankmajer moments, Kevin's waning attention span, weird beards & weirder wolves, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, varying bodysounds, no rides offered (or taken), off-mic nose whistling, genuine wonderment, a hidden snake and a whole lot more!

Up first, we take a trip with Cheech and Chong in one of the first stoner comedies ever Up in Smoke from 1978. Lou Adler (Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains) directs this pot themed romp about two dudes traveling around in a van made of weed.

Next, Kevin Smith follows up his critically acclaimed debut Clerks with another (albeit higher budget) comedy about slacker dudes struggling to understand the opposite sex in Mallrats from 1995 starring Jason Lee, Shannon Doherty, Jeremy London and Michael Rooker.

And finally, Johnny Depp plays Hunter S. Thompson taking a *trip* to Sin City with his attorney Dr. Gonzo played by Benicio Del Toro in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Terry Gilliam directs this psychedelic adaptation of Thompson's novel with a bold visual flare and far too many cameos to list here.

All this plus dad chat, favorite stoner characters, the drive-in celebrates 85 years, Tales from the Hood part 2 chat, high school memories and so much more!

JFD418: Blue Money, China Girl, Venus Flytrap

Jun 6, 2018

Description:

We could all pretend like a written introduction for this fine edition of Junk Food Dinner (guest-starring Justin of the Companeros Podcast) would suffice, or even provide a glimmer of insight into the contents therein. In reality, though, we all know that this kind of podcasting can't be described in a million words. But I guess we can at least tell you about the movies we've watched this week.
Firstly! Take one lovable character actor with a perplexing musical career, throw in a bad Irish accent, a blow-up doll, and weird taxicab racism, and what do you get? A strange British TV movie found on the depths of the Internet. Seldom screened or shown state-side, see some super silly singing shit in 1985's Blue Money, starring Tim Curry!

Secondly! We continue our exploration of the long and varied career of Abel Ferrara, as well as clear some space off Kevin Moss's borrowed VHS shelf, with 1987's China Girl! It's a classic Romeo and Juliet tale, transplanted to 80's NYC Chinatown and Little Italy, with a dash of sleaze and James Hong + David Caruso. But can Kevin Moss get past his known anti-Caruso bias?

Thirdly! We get caught in the Venus Flytrap, also from 1987! This is some real weird and wild shot-on-video shit, and you should probably just buy it and watch it without even hearing the plot. Can it rival Blood Lake in terms of memorable jetski sequences? (no, it has none)

All this plus some real wet stuff, witty banter between pals, pastrami on the back end, convenient loincloths, long-lasting hugging controversies, a suspicously-sourced attack on our heteronormality, the British football hooligan movie roundup, houseplant restraint, the violator gets randy, kevin's a good girl now, a love/hate relationship with total garbage, regional charms, shoulder-based sweater orientation, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, slime-filled farts, uber-belches, no rides offered (or taken), minor-key nose whistling, semi-fervent glances, freshly-squeezed fingernails, genuine fake-bat eyelashes and a whole lot more!

JFD417: Alphaville, Animal Instincts, Conspirators of Pleasure

Jun 1, 2018

Description:


This week things get spicy as we explore the existential, the erotic and the down-right weird, with three very different movies.

Up first, Jean-Luc Godard explores a futuristic society where computers have taken over and emotions are outlawed in the black & white sci-fi noir flick Alphaville from 1965.

Then, Shannon Whirry plays a wife neglected by her cop husband (Maxwell Caulfield) until they discover the erotic world of cuckoldry and voyeurism in the 1992 softcore Cinemax staple Animal Instincts from 1992 directed by Gregory Dark.

And finally, we close out Svank-May-er with the truly bizarre Conspirators of Pleasure from 1996. This dialogue-less Czech film explores the weird sexual kinks of a group of loners who will do just about anything to get off.

All this plus old people not being able to handle their weed, onion-flavored cotton candy, slasher movies where the killer quacks like a duck, Solo chat, puppet lawsuits and so much more!

JFD415: Transylvania 6-5000, Alice, Happiness

May 17, 2018

Description:

Gadzooks! It's an insane trio of creepy/weird/silly/horrifying films this week, as picked by our very own Patreon Pals! Listen along this week as we are driven very nearly to the edge of sanity by the demands of our beloved Dom Deluise Dudes.
First up: we review that cult-classic Transylvania-themed horror/comedy with the fun song and the big boobs. No, not that one. It's Transylvania 6-5000 from (1985), and somehow Kevin Moss ain't never seen it before! Shouts-out to listener Mickey for picking it!

Next! The SVANK-MAY-ER vertical theme continues across the month with our review of his first feature-length film, his 1988 adaptation of the classic Lewis Carroll tale Alice. It's like that classic wonderland tale, except everything you know and love has been replaced with rotting dead animal corpses and screaming baby dolls. You'll like it? Thanks, Evan.

Finally! Parker Bowman confronts a hellish runtime, Sean Byron confronts hellish black comedy, and Kevin Moss confronts a hellishly short film role for Jon Lovitz in indie darling Todd Solondz's 1998 transgressive dramedy Happiness as per Joseph's wishes. Will they ever be the same?

All this plus some real creep shit, witty banter between pals, the unheralded return of Shelby the Cobra, extremely extensive Wild Wild Country chats, Parker's memories of partying with dinosaurs and Jenny Lewis, checking checkboxes, a harrowing review of Super Troopers, Parker Bowman is a complicated man of two minds about a film, Skype Boobs, weird looking rooms, the edge of a podcasting axe, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, slime-filled coughs, uber-belches, no rides offered (or taken), minor-key nose whistling, semi-fervent glances, freshly-squeezed gleekspit, genuine fake-bat eyelashes and a whole lot more!

JFD414: Band of the Hand, Faust, Dirty Work

May 11, 2018

Description:


This week on Junk Food Dinner, we get dirty with Satan in Miami with three very different movies. 

Up first, a group of juvenile delinquents, after getting busted, are sent to the Florida Everglades to learn to survive and work together and the take those skills back to Miami to clean up the streets in Band of the Hand from 1986.

Then, Jan Svankmajer adds his twisted blend of stop motion and live action to the classic Faust story in this 1994 arty surrealist hallucination.

And finally, Norm MacDonald and Artie Lange play two losers who open a revenge-for-hire business in an attempt to raise money for their dying father (Jack Warden) in Dirty Work from 1998 directed by Bob Saget.

All this plus Flesh Gordon t-shirts, fast food history, Movie Pass gripes, movie tie-in collectible glasses, TJ Miller being weird and so much more!

JFD412: Monsters Crash the Pajama Party, A*P*E*, Link

Apr 25, 2018

Description:

Oh, crap. APE-Ril is all over. Sorry about that. Please enjoy this final APE-ril episode as a consolation. It has lots of monkeys.
First up: what is a Monsters Crash the Pajama Party, and what does it mean? And why are we watching it? All of this is answered within. From 1965.

Next! What movie features a massive gorilla dancing like a doofus to the soothing sensations of stock cinema clips? Why only 1976's A*P*E*, aka King Kong's Great Counterattack; aka The New King Kong; aka a whole host of legally-challenge movie titles and then later Attack Of The Giant Horny Gorilla. It's a South Korean cash-grab released just before the official 76 King Kong remake, and it's sure got a lot of creative reuse of footage!

Finally! Liz Shue risks getting a mean a mandible claw as she fights off at least one chimp (that's actually an orangutang) while trying to save at least one other chimp (that might actually be evil). It's a confusing movie, that's for sure. It's also for sure called Link, from 1986. Watch this one with a monkey you care about.

All this plus maniacs who dress nicely, witty banter between pals, Cheers Chats, a caller tests the limits of Kevin's search box adventurousness, spooky urban legends, a spooky call from Wayne, vintage Ohio party chats, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, greasy coughs, mega-belches, no rides offered (or taken), minor-key nose whistling, fervent glances, freshly-squeezed gleekspit, fake-bat eyelashes and a whole lot more!

Apr 20, 2018

Description:


Grab your bananas, chimps! Ape-ril rolls right along as we take a look a three very different monkey movies!
Up first,  the creative team behind King Kong, Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper re-team with stop-motion Kong master Willis H. O'Brien and his young protege Ray Harryhausen to bring another giant ape story to life in Mighty Joe Young from 1949.
Next, we take a look at a very strange French movie about a dude who finds out his wife is having an affair with a chimpanzee and then invites said chimp to live with his family in Nagisa Ôshima's 1986 comedy(?) Max mon amour.
And finally, schlockmiester Fred Olen Ray directs this silly kids movie about a kid (the oldest brother from Malcolm in the Middle) who finds a gorilla that has escaped from a sleazy circus promoter (wrestling's Terry Funk) in the 1998 straight-to-video Mom, Can I Keep Her?
All this plus in-show controversies, Cinema Wasteland and Monsterpalooza recaps, Sean vows never to see Ready Player One, Kevin vows to never see another Bill Z. Bubb movie, Netflix theatrical drama, Perfect Strangers lies and so much more!

Description:

BRACE YOURSELF FOR MAXIMUM MONKEYAGE! We're going ape all month long at the JFD headquarters, and it's gonna be just bananas! And these picks are coming straight from our flea-bitten friends over at the Dom Deluise Club?! Week one of APE-RIL, our heartfelt tribute to our hairy animal cousins, falls right out of a tree and into your lap NOW!
First up: what is a Mighty Peking Man, and what does he want? And is he even a monkey? We'll scour the 1977 Shaw Brothers cult classic for answers to these questions and more. But be forewarned: we may be too distracted by jungle boobies to come up with much of a conclusion. Thanks for Patreon pal Kessa for this one!

And then! You gotta hear about the time we reviewed Shakma, from 1990. You know, that weird killer Baboon / Live Action Roleplaying / Roddy McDowall flick filmed in Orlando for approximately five dollars? It's a door-smashing good time, courtesy of Patreon buddy John T!

Finally! We dive headlong into the MVP universe with the 2006 pseudo-sequel-or-spinoff-or-something Spymate, the world-famous chimpanzee secret agent film. Beware of fucked up seatbelt politics and attempts to create an international relations fiasco between friendly nations, and you might come out alive. Thanks(?) to Patreon all-star Justin D for introducing this to us.

All this plus witty banter between pals, milestones in ape cinema, a surprising return of moderate skype noise, turning heads with a silverback, 101 Hamburger Jokes, Parker's normcore image, we hear from Mickey, Elise, and Wayne!, black milk, Parker watches Baseketball while podcasting, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, greasy coughs, mega-belches, no rides offered (or taken), minor-key slide whistling, longing glances, freshly-squeezed gleekspit, tangerine eyelashes and a whole lot more!

JFD408: Vertigo, Head, The Holy Mountain

Mar 29, 2018

Description:


This week JFD celebrates 8 years of bringing the finest in cult cinema to your eagerly awaiting ear drums! To capitalize on the occasion, we continue our annual tradition of recounting our top 5 favorite and bottom 5 least favorite movies we've covered on the last year of the show as well as reviewing 3 classic cult bangers!

Up first, James Stewart plays a detective in San Francisco who has recently been afflicted with acrophobia but still takes a gig to follow a friend's wife (Kim Novak) who may be possessed by the spirit of a dead woman in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo from 1958.

Then, the manufactured pop group The Monkees go off-brand for their first (and only) major motion picture Head from 1968. Written and directed by Bob Rafelson and Jack Nicholson, the weird psychedelic freakout effectively killed The Monkees bubblegum image but also launched BBS Productions (Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Picture Show).

And finally, Alejandro Jodorowsky follows up his insane psychedelic epic El Topo with an even weirder, even more ambitious piece of surreal cinema, The Holy Mountain from 1973.

All this plus bad jokes during Robocop, HorrorHound Weekend rundown, plugs for freaky vampire soundtracks, hottest TV moms, surprising opinions and so much more!

JFD406: Night of the Juggler, Fade to Black, Annihilation

Mar 16, 2018

Description:

Strange fellows discuss strange films in these strange times, this week, on the show. It's an odd mixture of weird characters, locales, and activities, chronicled audiovisually for our digestion, which then spurs some unusual opinions and interactions between our hosts. This kind of bizarre event is not considered to be a regular occurence, and must not be missed.
First up: what is a Night of the Juggler, from 1980? It's an off-the rails NYC child-abduction action-thriller starring James Brolin and that dude from the Angel movies. You know the dude.

And then! You gotta hear about the time we reviewed Fade to Black, also from 1980. It's got that kid from Breaking Away, except this time he's a movie-obssessed creep with a murderous streak. He kind of reminds us of Wayne.

Finally! You'd better believe we're reviewing Annihilation, the new Alex Garland sci-fi flick from 2018. We never claimed we'd review anything else. Never in a week where a Natalie Portman-led expedition team is sent into a mysterious zone where things don't return from. We'd be fools to do so!

All this plus witty banter between pals, the best statues of Drax the Destroyer to drive your car through, the tried and true timeless tradition of Parker's generosity, the heebee jeebee's, mad cokehead strength versus the toughness of Richard Masur, Parker's Hotdog Birthday Jubilee, flannel tuxedos, how not to make think people think that some guy wormed your chick, the perilous plight of the person who was trans-Marilyn, a late callback to Thankskilling, Parker's intense and well-documented love of fractals, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, silent coughs, latent belches, no rides offered (or taken), major-key nose whistling, snide-ways glances, freshly-squeezed gleekspit and a whole lot more!

JFD405: The Girl Can't Help It, Possession, The Dark Backward

Mar 9, 2018

Description:


This week on JFD, we are joined by Parker's former cigarette counting co-worker Chris Corn to discuss three very different, yet very strange films.

Up first, former Looney Tunes animator Frank Tashlin brings us a story about a washed up mobster (Edmond O'Brien) who hires a drunk music agent (Tom Ewell) to make a star out of his bombshell girlfriend (Jayne Mansfield) all while encountering various early rock 'n stars such as Little Richard, Fats Domino, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent in The Girl Can't Help It from 1956.

Then, Mark (Sam Neill) and his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani) are splitting up. However, this divorce soon becomes very strange and intense as both Mark and Anna begin losing their goddamn minds and it is revealed that Anna has been involved in some weird shit in 1981's Possession, directed by Andrzej Zulawski.

And finally, Judd Nelson plays a terrible aspiring stand-up comic who's only friend is his garbageman buddy played by Bill Paxton. But when he inexplicably starts growing a third arm out of his back, a sleazy agent played by Wayne Newton sees this as an opportunity to exploit the deformity and strike it big in The Dark Backward from 1991.

All this plus Chris's chili preference, movies we got lucky to, Oscar talk, marijuana in movie theaters, stories about uninvited neighbors, and so much more!

JFD404.5: JFD Returns to Return to Nuke Em High with Lloyd Kaufman

Mar 7, 2018

Up first, Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten plays a sexy space android on a crew of goofy space cops including the dad from Monster Squad in the Crown International Pictures drive-in classic Galaxina from 1980.
Next, a trio of space babes take their parents' spaceship out for a joyride and crash land on Earth where they party with some horny dudes, Joe Estevez and Linnea Quigley in Beach Babes from Beyond from 1993
And finally, one of the most recent entries into the "space babes" subgenre, the aptly-titled Space Babes from Outer Space from 2017. Once again a trio of space babes crash land on earth and need the sexual energy from men to power their ship back home.

JFD402: The Last Man on Earth, The Omega Man, I Am Legend

Feb 16, 2018

Description:

The loneliest boys on the Internet are back at it again, together for only this brief window before going their separate ways in an unkind world. In these dim times one of the few shining lights is the presence of our brother Mark Freado, who joins us again this week. And together with him, we review three films based on the 1954 I Am Legend novel by Richard Matheson. Together, we hope to survive the odds and move onwards in our Sci-Fi Ebuary journeys, where we chance to meet again.
First up! We start way back at the start of all the I Am Legend adaptations, with 1964's The Last Man on Earth . This Italian/American co-production stars Vincent Price and a bunch of jazzy hepcat ghouls who wield very scary blocks of wood. It also inspired large portions of Night of the Living Dead! We chat all about that kinda stuff.

And then! You gotta hear about the time we reviewed The Omega Man, from 1971. If you don't hear about it now, you'll be hearing about it for the rest of your life. Specifically how much we liked or disliked Charlton Heston's rampant shirtlessness in this genre-bending adaptation.

Finally! You'd better believe we're reviewing I Am Legend from 2007, because that's the kind of podcast trip we're on. "Welcome to New York!", Will Smith doesn't say to any vampires in this movie, although he probably could have. This is that movie we all remember as being the one Sean saw in the Chinese theatre that one time. Also it's got the bad CGIs. But - get a load of that empty Times Square, wouldya?

All this plus witty banter between pals, Mack the Friendo, Valentine's Day messages for our beloved callers, the impugning of Wayne's journalistic credentials, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, metric sneezes, latent belches, no rides offered (or taken), minor-key nose whistling, THE MUSIC OF COBRAS, snide-ways frozen glances, semi-fresh-squeezed gleekspit and a whole lot more!

JFD401: The Visitor, The Wraith, Sunshine

Feb 10, 2018

Description:

YET AGAIN we turn over the reigns to the weirdest bunch of podcat listeners on the Internet, our very own Dom Deluise Donors on Patreon. And boy have they selected a trio of fine films for us this time!
First up! Listener Josh H insisted we finally cave in to popular demand and watch 1979's The Visitor. This post-Exorcist telekinetic freak-fest was somewhat ignored on release but has been gettinged pushed by cult movie fans lately, including Drafthouse Films. But is it weird enough? And is Parker amongst the 93%?

And then! Patreon Pals Mickey and Nick have suggested we review 1986's The Wraith, and we do just that! This Tuscon-set supernatural road-racer stars Charlie Sheen, Sherilyn Fenn, and Randy Quaid. Reviewing it may be the best choice we've ever made in our lives.

Finally! You'd better believe we're reviewing Sunshine from 2007, because that's exactly what our esteemed friends Joseph and Dr. P ordered. Director D. Boyle has brought his signature style of mid-budget genre filmmaking to space, but will it fly? Tune in to find out.

All this plus witty banter between pals, a Phantom Thread update, a three-dimensional sea creature update, a bevy of Junk Mailers, Cory and Al's plans get foiled by Jeopardy, Sean's penchant for Mom Movies, our report on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, balloon-store videoshops, all the Duck Butter in the world, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, metric sneezes, imperial belches, no rides offered (or taken), sandpaper nose whistling, THE MUSIC OF CHAKI, snide-ways glances, fresh-squeezed gleekspit and a whole lot more!

JFD400

Feb 2, 2018

Description:

The 400th episode of Junk Food Dinner is here!

We're joined by our brother Freado to discuss the secret origins of Junk Food Dinner. What movie were Mark and Kevin watching together when they decided to start a podcast? And how did Parker get involved? And how much did Sean have to threaten Mark to quit? All this and more!

We also talk about Peppy LePew, get some very nice junk mails and pay tribute to our three favorite JFD callers.

Then we're joined by Mike from VRTL Pros/Kissing Contest/Buncocky to induct some of our favorite people, places and things from the last 8 years into the Junk Food Dinner Hall of Fame.

JFD399: Watership Down, Skatetown USA, Norwegian Ninja

Jan 26, 2018

Description:


This week, the Patreon donors gave us their picks and we gave them to the Randomizer 5000 and got three movies that couldn't be any more different!

Up first, it's the movie that traumatized a million children, Watership Down from 1978. What seems like an innocent cartoon about cute little bunnies turns out to be a violent and bleak story about the horror and reality of death.

Next, we take a coked-up rollerskating tour of late-70's disco culture in Skatetown USA from 1979. Starring Patrick Swayze (in his first film role), Scott Baio, Marsha Brady herself Maureen McCormick and Billy fuckin' Barty, this colorful and zany time capsule has long been sought after by connoisseurs of vintage cheese.

And finally, we examine the stylized true story (with plenty of artistic liberties taken) of Commander Arne Treholt who trains a clan of ninjas to save Norway during the Cold War in Norwegian Ninja from 2010.

All this plus dashcam videos hit the big screen, Sean sees Phantom Thread for the 15th time, voicemails from the Pacific Northwest, Razzie Nominations, more awful dreck from the guy who did Werckmeister Harmonies and so much more!

JFD398: La Grande Bouffe, Real Genius, Only God Forgives

Jan 18, 2018

Description:

Some podcasts review movies they love. Other review movies they hate. Some podcasts review movies based on phases of the moon. Junk Food Dinner reviews movies that you wanna hear about, and this Patreon-selected episode this week is no exception! Please, enter this winter wonderland with a sense of whimsy in your heart. It'll be what you need to get through these dark days.
First up! Listener Evan G provides us with reason to chat about fart noises for more time than usual, as he's had us watch and discuss the 1973 French/Italian proto-Ghoul flick La Grande Bouffe, in which a gaggle of bored Frenchmen consume large amounts of brown-looking fancy-food to the point of death, all whilst farting up a storm not seen since the days of the blitzkrieg. But is this french-person's attempt at satire tasty enough to bite into? We'll taste-test before you risk disappointment.

And then! Patreon John T has suggested we review 1985's Real Genius, and we do just that! This prank-filled college flick is often compared to Revenge of the Nerds, but can it get by on a closet-bound John Gries alone?

Finally! You'd better believe we're reviewing Only God Forgives from 2013, based on listener Chris B's suggestion. It's one of those movies with all of the weird surreal arty stuff that Sean and probably Kevin like, and Parker will probably hate. But who knows! The power of Nicolas Refn and Ryan Gosling may compel him.

All this plus witty banter between pals, the podcast where an old man learns to love again, Nicolas Refn had a juggalo in his house today, the odds of cartoon fish monsters winning oscars, empty hotel celebrations, the only way Wayne's getting back on JFD ever again, National Pornographic Radio, the rank odor of randomization, the unemployment figures amongst the ranks of modern werewolves, the full-length version of Mant, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, all robbers no cops, semi-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, no rides offered (or taken), sandpaper armpit farts, super-musical beds, snide-ways glances, fresh-squeezed gleekspit and a whole lot more!

JFD397: Very Close Encounters of the 4th Kind, Shes so Fine!, Busty Cops

Jan 12, 2018

Description:

Happy Nude Year, Junkies!

First up, the wacky Italian movie where nerdy students dress up like aliens to trick their science teacher into having sex with them! Very Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind from 1978!

Next, a woman deals with the idiosyncrasies of her family, friends and weird strange punk rockers before getting married in "She's so Fine! from 1986.

Finally, Jesse Jane, Nikki Nova and Angela Little are foxy police officers tasked with solving a murder in Jim Wynorski's 2004 film, "Busty Cops."

All this, plus DVDs, Nerd News, Memphis Maniacs, Fallen Ones, Learning to Love Again, Kevin gets uncomfortable and we steal the mic from Tommy Wiseau.

Jan 5, 2018

Description:


We kick off 2018 by taking a look back at the year that was 2017 as we discuss our five favorite movies of the past year. Then we're joined by director and JFD listener Joe Badon who just recently completed his psychedelic low-budget debut The God Inside My Ear.
Up first, brothers Benny and Josh Safdie take us inside the desperate world of a young low-life in New York (Robert Pattinson) who goes through a weird series of events trying to get his brother out of jail and find a Sprite bottle filled with LSD in Good Time.
Next, can a PG-13 Groundhog Day-meets-Scream mash-up really be any good? We find out when we look at Happy Death Day about a college student who has to relive her birthday over and over again and find out who's trying to kill her.
And finally, we take a look at the over-the-top South Korean action thriller The Villainess. In this crime story from director Byung-gil Jung, a female assassin (Ok-bin Kim) is captured by the Korean government and forced to work for them in order to protect her young daughter all while trying to find the person who murdered her father.
All this plus legal weed in California chat, our thrilling New Year's Eve experiences, holiday voicemails, Skype noise, Parker has a cold again and so much more!

JFD395: X-Mas Massacre (AKA Last Stop on the Night Train), Get Santa, Better Watch Out

Dec 21, 2017

Description:

Do you hear what we hear? Pull up a seat by the fireplace and hear the bells with us, Junk Food Junkies. It's cold outside but we've specially formulated this podcast to cross-function as a travel-sized pocket warmer. Our patented yuletide blend includes: HEATED thoughts on Christmastime cheer, HEATED thoughts on I Tonya, HEATED thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, HEATED thoughts on Italian gas station payphones and so much more.

We bring the hot Tupac jams. Will from Richmond brings a hot voicemail. Check out these hot cheeseburger sad-eyes. Hot Canadian voicemails from a Hot Canadian male voice. A basket of hot apples to denote cold-ass creeps. The bass player from the Goo Goo Dolls is a hot sucker for this kind of shit. It's the hottest seasonal podcast to melt your tongue right off that frozen metal pole, so tell all your friends. We also review a trio of Christmastime films, if that's something you'll believe!
First up! All aboard Aldo Lado's loose remake of Last House on the Left, a stylish 1975 rape revenge flick mostly set aboard a long-distance European train line. It's a grim and grimy movie, known by several names, but we'll refer to it simply as Xmas Massacre and we'll speak quietly and slowly as we review it for you.

And then! The next movie we review is Get Santa from 2014! Directed by Christopher Smith! From the UK!

Finally! You'd better not cry, because we're reviewing Better Watch Out from 2017. It's one of those movies that we suggest you don't know anything about, and then we proceed to tell you everything about it. Watch out!

All this plus witty banter between pals, blood running down legs, reasons why Parker chose his movie, spoiler: Santa gets hard in prison, much motherfucking California love, the national sickness, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, funny Skype business, no audible mention of police involvement, all-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, one ride offered (not taken), sandpaper armpit farts, Lemming droppings, snide-ways glances, lowfat vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD393: Pop Aye, Another Yeti Love Story: Life on the Streets, 68 Kill

Dec 8, 2017

Description:


As 2017 draws to a close, the JFD boys take a look at three under-represented flicks from our current year to see how they stack up.

Up first, Thai newcomer Kirsten Tan brings us Pop Aye, the story of a middle-aged man in Thailand who abandons his unfulfilling life to walk an elephant he knew as a child across the country back to his childhood home.

Next, a man who draws penises has to save his yeti baby from a pimp in Another Yeti Love Story: Life on the Streets. As ridiculous as that plot sounds, it doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the silliness involved in this over-the-top low-budget comedy.

And finally, Trent Haaga, the writer of Citizen Toxie and Cheap Thrills, brings us 68 Kill that centers on a submissive dude whose domineering prostitute girlfriend pushes him into a stealing $68,000 from one of her customers. But when things go wrong, he finds himself in various violent situations at the hands of women.

All this plus witty banter between friends, huge legal challenges to the Government, legitimate theater chat, space hippies, Junk Mail voicemails, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

Help a JFD listener get their movie off the ground!

Dec 5, 2017

Description:

Hey, gang! JFD Listener William Wallace is looking for some support to get his movie off the ground. Take a second to check out their Thunderclap site and see if it's up your alley and what you can do to help.

I saw the short film version and the movie, C.R.I.T.: 100% fits in the JFD cannon. It's full of Role-playing VHS post-apocalypse nostalgia. And dudes in the movie are wearing GWAR shirts and Ghoul Summer shirts, which is reason enough for me to take interest. Wallace and his crew want to turn the short film full-length, so take a look, Junkies!

JFD392: Cape Fear (1991), The Shaft (2001), Death Note (2017)

Nov 30, 2017

Description:

Haven't we been this way before? If this podcast lineup is sounding a little familiar, it's because this week we take a look at three of the most outrageous and interesting REMAKES we could find!
First up! Cling onto your undercarriage, counselors. Things are getting tough and Nick Nolte is pushed to do some morally and legally questionable things to Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese's sorta-goofy remake of the classic thriller Cape Fear (this time, from 1992)! And we review it!

And then! Week two of our Merry Dick Maas celebration! Last week, we all got Lifted with The Lift from 1983. This week, we're all getting Shafted with The Shaft from 2001! Take the freight car down to our spooky basement podcat recording studio where we'll regale you with tales of rollerblading gone awry and debate precisely which Dick Maas film is the canonical killer elevator flick.

Finally Willem Dafoe provides the voice for the shadowy Ryuk (as in, you can't see him) in 2017's Death Note remake, directed by Adam Wingard and released on Netflix. And that's just about all we need to talk about for this one!

All this plus witty banter between pals, those little Motorhead dots, Welf is a nice man and Parker braves the stores, poor Travis gets stood up, Parker never said that, real rich dudes dropping some paper on some papers, completely opposed views on Dick Maas movies, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, funny Skype business, no audible mention of police involvement, all-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, no rides offered or given, sandpaper armpit farts, it's a podcast, snide-ways glances, lotsa fat vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

Also! Check out Tromasterpiece Theatre - "The Battle of Love's Return" (1971) on YouTube for some free funnies.

JFD391: Cape Fear, The Lift, Death Note

Nov 24, 2017

Description:

It's a Cranksgiving miracle! The JFD boys are back with a trio of original films. And they'll be back next week to discuss their remakes!

First, Robert Mitchum serves up some southern-style revenge against a man who testified against him in 1962's "Cape Fear."

Next, Dick Mass (lol) brings us a terrifying tale of a homicidal elevator, that leaves us asking- "who are the REAL elevators?" in "The Lift" from 1983.

Finally, a Japanese kid is given the gift of a notebook that murders anyone who's name is written in it in 2006's "Death Note."

All this plus Fury Road chat, DVDs, Nerd News, Justice League chat, Voicemails, is Wayne part of the family? and so much more!

JFD390: Used Cars, Class of 1999, Attack the Gas Station

Nov 17, 2017

Description:


It's our monthly Patreon donor picks show as we take a look at three movies picked by those special folks who are brave enough to put their money where their mouth is!

Up first, Kurt Russell and Gerrit Graham are two sleazy used car salesman who have to pull some wild stunts to move automobiles after their owner (Jack Warden) dies and the owner of a rival car lot (also Jack Warden) tries to put them out of business in Used Cars from 1980 directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Next, in the grim future of 1999, gangs have taken over schools all over the country so a government opportunist played by Stacy Keach decides to try and whip the students into shape with the aid of cyborg killing machines programmed to be teachers (including Pam Grier) in Class of 1999 from 1990 directed by Mark L. Lester.

And finally, a gang of hoodlums take the employees of a gas station hostage and run the pumps and cause trouble over the course of a night in the 1999 Korean action comedy Attack the Gas Station.

All this plus witty banter between friends, did Earthquake see 9/11? Killer Queen chat, a retro Junk Mail voicemail, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD389: Troma's War, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D, Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV

Nov 10, 2017

Description:

It's a traumatic Trovember theme show! Three (tragically theatrically-toxic) tales of tape-tangling terror tear through our tastebuds this time as we try to temper the troublingly tempting tastelessness of their tremendously twisted tableaus! Tackle a trinity of Troma triumphs with your boys!
First up! Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz weave a tale (sadly) as old as time - a tale of mortal conflict between sworn enemies - this is, of course, Troma's War from 1988. A moralistic fable with allusions to fierce critques of Reagan's America, it provided the basis for many teenage political commentators marijuana-baked parking-lot ramblings for months to come. Lots of machine gun fire.

Next! It's 1990's Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., which is about a New York cop who (hilariously!) transforms into a were-Asian at night, allowing him to fight crime most effectively behind a Kabuki mask. You know, it was back in the day when these kinds of things could fly. It's also got a penis puppet monster!

Finally, we talk about the only Toxic Avenger movie ever made, Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV, from 2000! Starring Corey Feldman, this vehicle for the ol' Feldster may not have been given its proper due on original release. But with such a surge of interest in The CF in the current zeitgeist, could now finally be the time people start discussing the importance of this film? Is this something we'll even talk about?

All this plus witty banter between reunited podcats, Disney's Marvel Presents: Thor Ragnachats, Takashi Miike's 100th film, a Vietname shake-up, a Mexican shake-down, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, funny Skype business, no audible mention of police involvement, all-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, rides which can be given to others, regular armpit farts, no benefits of notcasting, all your trailer needs in one place, lowfat vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD388: Pet Sematary, Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace, Night Flier

Nov 2, 2017

Description:

We're back like a cat buried in an old cemetery! Well, except for Kevin, who has become a Luchador, so Mike from VRTL Pros is filling in for him. This week, we visit 3 randomly picked movies based on Stephen King books. Mostly.

First, a man buries his cat in an Indian Burial Ground because his elderly drunk neighbor tells him to in "Pet Sematary." Sometimes, is dead better?

Next, Job returns to a Blade Runner-esque future to conquer the virtual world in "Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace."

Finally, a Weekly World News reporter investigates a string of airport-based murders that may have been committed by a vampire in "Night Flier." Spoiler: It's obviously a vampire.

All this, plus Wrestle Chat, Corn Gorn Chat, Elvira Chat, Nerd News, I'll Give you a Ride, DVDs, Utility Infielders for the Boston Red Sox and so much more!

JFD387: The Manitou, Strange Invaders, Night of the Demons 2

Oct 27, 2017

Description:


With Halloween a mere few days away, JFD gets some tricks and treats from our Patreon pals as we look at three spooky flicks to get you in the spirit of the season.

Up first, Susan Strasberg plays a woman with an unusual growth on the back of her neck but when doctors discover it's an evil Native American midget growing in her body, it's up to her psychic friend (played by Tony Curtis) to save her (and the world) in The Manitou from 1977.

Next, a Columbia University professor travels to a small midwestern town looking for his ex-wife who has disappeared but discovers a secret alien conspiracy. He teams up with a tabloid journalist (Nancy Allen) and a mental patient (Michael Lerner) to stop the evil saucer men in in Strange Invaders from 1983.

And finally, a group of horny Catholic school kids make another trip to Hull House to throw a Halloween bash but the demon spirit of Angela still haunts the premises in Night of the Demons 2 from 1994 directed by Australia's gift that keeps on giving, Brian Trenchard-Smith.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Halloween candy chat, fireworks chat, an in depth look at The Snowman and Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD386: The Exorcist, Exorcist II: The Heretic, The Exorcist III

Oct 19, 2017

Description:

Can grampa movies really be scary? We're finding out this week with our Exorcist theme show. And as an old man in a convenience store might tell you, this is one of them Oscar-winnin' horror movies! And it's got some sequels of variable quality that are also discussed, all together with extra special guest Mark Freado live from the Big Apple New York City!
First up! William Friedken's seminal horror film The Exorcist from 1973, scared the crap out of a lot of people on its initial release, but can this tale of a young girl possessed by Satan still shock and offend? Even if it can't, we've got jokes about pea soup!

Next! It's 1977's Exorcist II: The Heretic, and the less said about it, the better. It does a star Linda Blair, though!

Finally, there aren't any more Exorcist movies to talk about after we discuss The Exorcist III, from 1990! Brad Dourif shows up in this movie based on a non-Exorcist book (Legion), that was written and then directed by ol' Blatty, the author of the original Exorcist book, which was then transformed into an Exorcist movie. Confused? Listen and we'll sort you out.

All this plus witty banter between reunited podcats, Mike Dikk vaping in the corner, lots of movie stuff happenin', just fartin' around on the Internet, sick Hock' upgrades, rating callers on that Boob Scale, Wayne is a piece of shit with no meaning in life, shouldn't a horror channel be a no-brainer?, our favorite theatrical splash zones, pinky-out prestige horror films, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, no mention of police involvement, all-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, sideways armpit farts, the retold benefits of podcasting, unbrominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD385.5: An Exercise in Exorcism

Oct 18, 2017

Description:

What an excellent day for an exorcism! It would bring us together. The Power of Christ compels you to listen along as we attempt to review three films that may or may not carry with them some kind of "death curse." Will we succeed in reviewing these movies, or will some terrible fate befell us? You'll be able to tell pretty easily from the runtime on this episode!

All this plus witty banter between reunited podcats, we give the MoviePass people a little piece of our mind, movies we don't wanna pay for, Harry Hole, Parker Bowman will pay for Boo the Madea Movie, the toe-tapping triumph of Tomorrow, unbrominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD384: Psycho, Psycho II, Psycho III

Oct 6, 2017

Description:


It's the greatest time of year; Schlocktober is upon us and we kick off this year's festivities by bringing on Jackson Stewart, director of Beyond the Gates, to discuss 3 flicks about Norman Bates and his mommy issues.

Up first, we examine the original black and white Alfred Hitchcock  classic, where Janet Leigh checks into an off-the-beaten-path motel after stealing $40,000 from her job only to fall victim to the motel's proprietor Norman Bates, played by Anthony Perkins. This bonafide masterpiece ushered  in a new era of slashers. Get ready for the shower scene, kids, it's Psycho from 1960.

Next, 23 years later, after Hitchcock had died, Universal revived the series exploring the further misadventures of Norman Bates after he is released from prison and returns to his infamous motel only to have his murderous urges return in Psycho II from 1983.

And finally, Anthony Perkins expands his role, now acting as director and star of Psycho III from 1986. This time Norman is back to his old tricks after a drifter played by Jeff Fahey comes to work at the Bates Motel and young women start to end up dead.

All this plus witty banter between friends, more Mother! chat, is Parker becoming a grandpa?, Psycho songs, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD383: Lady in a Cage, Midnight Cowboy, Cemetery Man

Sep 29, 2017

Description:

Crawl on up outta the water, creepy Patreon pals! It's our slimy Dom Deluise patreon donors show! This week we're delivering you three reviews of wild cult flicks chosen exclusively by our $10 a month donors! If you don't know about that jazz yet be sure to check out our world-famous Patreon Page. It'll be the one good thing you can feel good about this year.
First up! Our man Paul M's got an unexpectly rough sixties flick to send our way. It's the proto-home-invasion thriller Lady in a Cage from 1964, starring Olivia de Havilland and a young James Caan. When a rich, lonesome housewife is stuck in her in-home elevator system, all bets are off and just about any drunk dude could show up to steal her wine. Look out for creepy facemasks!

Next! It's 1969's coming-to-the-city, coming-of-age, coming-in-a-movie-theater-seat classic Midnight Cowboy, and it's really wild we haven't covered this one yet. Jon Voight plays a male gigolo cowboy, guided through the mean streets of New York by Dustin Hoffman. You know, something we can all relate to. Thanks to Elise for picking this classic!

Finally, there aren't any monster fishmen to be found in 1994's Cemetery Man, although that might be the only creepy plot device not to surface in this weirdo flick. Michele Soavi's surreal graveyard-set Italian horror flick blends several surprise elements into a single spookshow - including floating severed heads! And if you don't like it, well, it's all listener Brandon's fault!

All this plus witty banter between reunited podcats, reaching out to that ASMR community, Matthew Sweetman shampoos our hair, Sean Byron or Sean Bronson?, our main man in Austin Ricky, Sloppy Seconds Chat (a new segment), Unspiking television networks, how in the world did we all accept that Manswers was a real TV show?, just how gross are the creeps in the cult film community?, Parker's ever-increasing maturity level, the secret history of Punchliners, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, the unfortunate specter of police involvement, all-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, sideways armpit farts, the retold benefits of podcasting, unbrominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD381: Village of the Giants, Blood Games, The Real Cancun

Sep 15, 2017

Description:


Break out your bikinis because JFD is closing out summer with a killer party featuring giant juvenile delinquents, baseball babes and drunk co-eds. Plus, we're joined by O.G. JFD host Mark Freado to enhance the festivities.

Up first, a group of rowdy teens (including a young Beau Bridges) get ahold of a magic goo that little Ronny Howard makes in his science lab that turns living creatures super sized. When they eat the goo they turn into humongous party animals that just want to dance in Bert I. Gordon's Village of the Giants from 1965.

Then, a traveling female baseball team runs a-foul (get it?) of a gang of hillbillies in the back woods of the South. After the ladies beat the hicks in baseball and take their money, the good ol' boys try to get revenge in some grisly ways, but these baseball babes fight back in Blood Games from 1990.

And finally, the people that brought you The Real World try to bring that reality charm to the big screen by making a pseudo-documentary about a group of college kids getting drunk and hooking up in Mexico in The Real Cancun from 2003.

All this plus witty banter between friends, what Freado's been up to, bitchin' about It, tips for theaters and studios on how not to suck, Twitter fights with The New York Times, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD380: It's Alive, Octaman, Zaat

Sep 7, 2017

Description:

Crawl on up outta the water, creeps! It's our slimy Monster Fish Men theme show! This week we're delivering you the soggiest trio of underwater jams this side of the black lagoon!
First up! Our man Larry Buchanan manages to lure greenlisted teen idol Tommy Kirk into a prehistoric cave of mystery and mayhem in 1969's It's Alive! It's a fish-man movie, not the Larry Cohen baby flick, trust us.

Next! Is it man? Is it fish? Is it octopus? Nah, it's 1971's Octaman, and it's really something else. He's the eight-legged dude that's gonna make ya say "Oh shit, it's Octaman!"

Finally, the Monster Fish Man film that spawned it all, 1971's Zaat. And what exactly has it spawned? The only way to know for sure is to listen to us chat about it.

All this plus witty banter between slimy dudes, the unexpected return of Norman Bates Junior, another bunch of crybaby clowns in the public sphere, racist cartoon lawsuits, the invention of Nice-Skates (tm) and the Sad Saga of Grampa Larry, a shout-out to the interns in the digital animation department of Disney Junior, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, an assumed lack of overt police involvement, half-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, armpit farts, the untold benefits of podcasting, fully-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD378: An Eye for an Eye, Cyborg, Cartels

Aug 25, 2017

Description:


Shock and Awe-gust explodes with another week of action flicks, this week we are joined by Garon Cockrell of the Never Not Funny podcast and PopCultureBeast.com as we examine three films starring giants of the action world.

Up first, Chuck Norris plays a San Francisco cop who goes rogue after his partner is murdered. After teaming up with his slain partner's wife (Rosalind Chao) and her kung fu expert father (Mako), Norris goes up against an evil drug ring including Christopher Lee and Professor Tanaka while trying not to get hassled by his former boss Richard Roundtree in An Eye For An Eye from 1981. 

Then, Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a mercenary in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the future trying to hunt down a female robot who has information that could help cure the plague that has decimated the world. Unfortunately a gang of cyberpunks are out to stop him in the Cannon Films release Cyborg from 1989.

And finally, an older, heavier Steven Seagal plays a DEA agent trying to get to the bottom of what happened during the transport of a captured international drug kingpin in Cartels (AKA Killing Salazar) from 2016.

All this plus witty banter between tough dudes, eclipse talk, GWAR chat with Travis, more Sean Max Max revelations, sad Nerd News, MoviePass chat, Ghoul Summer t-shirts, poll results for our 1,100th movie, our weekly Blu-ray Picks, an assumed lack of overt police involvement and a whole lot more!

JFD377: The Panther Squad, The 13th Warrior, Hardcore Henry

Aug 19, 2017

Description:

Shock and Awegust at Junk Food Dinner is different than Shock and Awegust at other podcasts. Here at JFD, we've got a time-honored tradition of including movie picks curated specifically by our Patreon Donors. And now, this week, here is that episode as per our traditions.
First up! Our man Paul's got a surprising Sybil Danning feature for us to feast on, 1984's The Panther Squad, which you might remember as being that one movie where Sybil Danning wears revealing leather clothing.

Next! Our man Travis is waging a battle against indifference, with the forgotten blockbuster The 13th Warrior from 1999! It stars Antonio Banderas and was directed by the guy who did Die Hard, so why has nobody heard of it?

Finally, who could forget our man Luke's legendary suggestion that we finally review 2015's Hardcore Henry? Not us, or we surely wouldn't have reviewed it. It's that first-person movie from the Russian director where all the policemen get shotgunned. You gotta see it!

All this plus witty banter between tough dudes, Coors references, a plethora of Kevin-related celebrations (in audio drop format), Ghoul Summer t-shirts, JFD poop styles, JFD jerk styles, all your Munsters updates, extended Bobcat chattings, our weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, an assumed lack of overt police involvement, half-wet sneezes, super-mega belches, armpit farts, the untold benefits of podcasting, fully-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

Aug 12, 2017

Description:

Shock and Awegust begins now! We're talking about action movies all month!

Kevin's out partying in Boston this week, but we have a stacked show nonetheless! We have an interview with the Found Footage Festival dudes and we're joined by Derrick from Astro Radio Z to discuss three wacky films!

First, a couple of tourists get into some ghoulish nonsense while on vacation in Greece in the 1976 video nasty "Island of Death." (It's not an action movie).

Next, Ronny Yu's classic Hong Kong take on Romeo and Juliet set against an old timey Chinese war: "The Bride with White Hair" from 1993.

Finally, David A Prior's sequel to the epic story about hunting humans in the woods for little to no reason: "Deadliest Prey."

All this, plus Bill Zebub chat, Voicemails, incorrect theme songs, no nerd news, no dvds, ghoul summer chat and so much more!

JFD375: True Gore, Red Room, Dickshark

Aug 4, 2017

Description:

We'll here we are again, kids, Ghoul Summer 2017 is coming mercifully to an end. And what better way to round out the festivities than by partying with the original ghoul himself, Mr. Mike Dikk, formerly of Kissing Contest and currently of Virtual Pros.

Up first, we take a look at another one of those Faces of Death-esque real-life carnage footage comps, True Gore from 1987. This relic from the industrial music scene compiles death footage, animal torture and genital mutilation. Bring the kids!

Next, we step inside the Red Room from 1999. In this low-budget, Japanese exploitation film, four contestants try to out-ghoul one another to win a million dollars. Things start off pretty tame but eventually get very ghoulish. The movie is made even more unsettling by having some of the grossest sound effects ever featured on JFD.

And finally, we suffer through notorious ghoul director Bill Zebub's latest 2+ hour exercise in juvenile schlock, Dickshark from 2016. In this ultra-low budget shit fest, Mr. Zebub gropes strippers boobs for most of the run time and then a rubber, flesh colored shark puppet attacks them.

All this plus witty banter between friends, catchin' up with the Dikkster, ghoul revelations, 3-D movie news, gross noises, all your favorite ghoul drops, Donald Lloyd, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD374: Faces of Death IV, Red to Kill, Sick: the Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist

Jul 28, 2017

Description:

You can't wait 'til summer? Because it's gonna be a summer of ghouls? Hey now? It's this week's episode of Junk Food Dinner! We kick off our two-week tribute to the ghastliest and grossest flicks to watch in the sweatiest parts of the summertime, our own personal S&M trip: Week One of GHOUL SUMMER starts now! And to help us kick things off, we're joined by very special guest, cinematographer Brian Sowell (Sequence Break, Beyond the Gates)! And did we mention these movies were all suggested to us by our Patreon Donors? Those dudes pick some creepy flicks.
First up! The fourth installment in the venerable series of ghoul-classics that in some senses started the entire ghoul craze as we know it today, Faces of Death IV, from 1990, finds new and interesting ways to surprise us, and we talk about some of the more insensitive ways in which it did so.

Next! 1994's Red to Kill is more artful than your typical Hong Kong CAT-III movie, but that doesn't mean it has any less sequences featuring the rape of the mentally disabled. In fact, it has several. But that mood lighting, though!

Finally, who could forget Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Super-Masochist. This film, from 1997, is well beloved by all, most importantly Parker. It's a real eye-opener (and dick-smasher) of a movie. You gotta see it!

All this plus witty banter between fiends, ghoulish on-set experiences, ghoulish drowning stories, ghoulish studio executives, dallas suicide club, buying gore by the sheets, your weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, a profound lack of noted police involvement, half-wet sneezes, mega belches, almost-decrepit erections, the dangers of ghouldom, well-brominated mineral gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD373: Last Summer, Scenes From the Goldmine, I Woke Up Early the Day I Died

Jul 20, 2017

Description:

Nobody ever tells Junk Food Dinner what is and isn't possible. Not even the laws of physics are strictly respected around these parts. Case in point and pudding-proof: this week's episode features none other than Wayne Killmeister of Motion Picture Massacre: the Podcast. You won't believe it, but that doesn't change a damn thing. It happened.
First up! Could it be a prelude to Ghoul Summer? Is that the kind of kick Sean Byron's on these days? One thing's for sure, it's 1969's Last Summer, directed by Frank Perry and starring a dead seagull.

Next! The movie that seems like for sure it should have been on HBO all the time when we were kids, but nobody remembers. It's a Kevin Moss blind-pick bonanza as we review 1987's Scenes from the Goldmine! In this case, they're mining for lucrative song publishing royalties (and cocaine).

Finally, who could forget I Woke Up Early The Day I Died. This film, from 1998, is well beloved by all, most importantly Wayne. It premiered famously at the Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Calif. It's written by Ed Wood, and not the fictional Tim Burton character but the actual historical figure. You gotta see it!

All this plus witty banter between podcats, Wayne's unfettered sense of civic pride, Wayne's official theme song, Wayne's stance on Illogical Contraption Radio Podcast, Wayne's boob-scale ratings on Junkmails, Wayne's standing with Jackson Stewart, Wayne's standing with Unknown Caller, Wayne witnesses the return of a very special caller, Wayne's thoughts on Ghoul Summer fashions, Wayne's experiences with JFD commentary episodes and presidential elections, Wayne's preferred methods for seeing Jodorowsky films, some weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, an assumed lack of overt police involvement, half-wt sneezes, mega belches, partly-decrepit erections, the dangers of podcasting, semi-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD372: The Hitcher, Wild Tales, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

Jul 14, 2017

Description:


This week on JFD we turn over the programming rights to our loyal Dom Deluise $10-a-month Patreon donors and get a trio of off-beat features to sink our teeth into.

Up first, C. Thomas Howell (Soul Man) plays a young man driving alone in Texas who picks up a hitchhiker played by Rutger Hauer (Hobo with a Shotgun) who quickly reveals himself as a psycho killer. Soul Man manages to escape the madman but sets off a game of cat and mouse in The Hitcher from 1986.

Next, we take a look at Argentina's highest grossing movie ever, Wild Tales (AKA Relatos Salvajes) from 2014. This dark anthology flick weaves 6 tales about people in strange situations with questionable morals.

Finally, Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar reprise their roles (well, at least the voices) from the classic 60's Batman TV show in an all-new, straight-to-DVD, animated adventure; Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders from 2016.

All this plus witty banter between friends, vacation plans, slot machine previews, Junk Mail, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

Description:

Jun 30, 2017

Description:

First up, a dude sells his movie theater to raise money to make a ghost movie. That's the real story. What happens in the actual movie is anyone's guess -- "The Ghosting" aka "Bad Ghost."

Next, Captain America finds himself in a present day where nazis have infiltrated the American system in "Captain America: Winter Soldier."

Finally, a Russian cop stops a bank robbery in the short film, "Major Grom."

All this plus Nerd News, DVDs, Sean rearranging furniture, Wayne calls in and so much more!

JFD369: Lifeforce, Ed Wood, I Am Here... Now

Jun 23, 2017

Description:


Much to Parker's delight, JFDecades is coming to a close. And we're finishing strong with three oddball flicks with an emphasis on notoriously bad directors!
Up first, a group of astronauts (including Steve Railsback of Nukie fame) find an alien ship inside the tail of Halley's Comet. They find a group of naked vampires and bring them back to their ship. But when there's an explosion on the ship killing most of the crew, only Railsback and the vampires escape, landing on Earth. Now the vampire aliens are on the loose and it's up to Railsback and a bunch of Brits to track them down before they bring on armageddon in 1985's Lifeforce, directed by Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist) and released by Cannon Films.
Next, Tim Burton directs a black and white biopic about one of Hollywood's most infamous "bad" directors, Ed Wood. Johnny Depp plays the titular Wood as he hustles his way through the underbelly of low budget filmmaking in the 1950's. The movie explores Wood's penchant for cross-dressing, his friendship with a near-death Bela Lugosi (played to perfection by Martin Landau) and the wacky cast of characters he assembled to produce his magna opus Plan Nine from Outer Space.
And finally, on the subject of infamous bad directors, we dissect yet another bizarre, amateurish, low-budget affair from Neil Breen, 2006's I Am Here... Now. In this outing, Breen plays a cyber Jesus who goes around punishing those who aren't living according to "his plan".
All this plus witty banter between friends, Pizza Hut memories, old theatre chat, Junk Mail, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD368: The Night of the Hunter, Danger: Diabolik, Trackdown

Jun 17, 2017

Description:

We're smack in the middle of this year's JFDecades run, and it's a hell of a show. We've got three wild flicks we found on the banks of the Ohio river, just upstream from that Sodom of the Midwest, Parkersburg!

First up! You know that movie with the "Love and Hate" finger tattoos? On Robert Mitchum? Playing a self-appointed Preacher slash serial killer? You know the one. It's 1955's The Night of the Hunter. Yeah, that one. We review it.

Next! Remember that weird Italian spy flick with the skin-tight, nostril-hugging masks? The one Mario Bava directed in 1968? Danger: Diabolik is the one! We talk all about that one.

Finally, who could forget Trackdown. This film, from 1976, is review lastly on the show this week. It stars James "Jim" Mitchum, eldest son of Robert Mitchum, and is being considered by some for a retroactive Academy Awards Ceremy sweep of all categories. We SPOIL THE CRAP OUT OF THIS MOVIE so you should definitely watch the movie first (streaming free on Amazon Prime, cheap on DVD).

All this plus witty banter between friends, why parker stays away from bread, dave's killer marketing team, the cream of the teens, It Comes At two nightmares in a row, Parker Bowman forgets Vanilla Sky exists, Seventy Eighty Year Old Party Monster Doug Benson, Wicks in Private, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, half-dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, the dangers of tumblr, semi-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD367: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari / Gold Diggers of 1935 / Rope

Jun 10, 2017

Description:

Call your grampa cuz JFDecades is back again!

First, the widely influential German expressionist film, "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" from 1920. If you've seen a Tim Burton movie, you're probably gonna find the film pretty familiar.

Then, wealthy members of a New England resort put on a show in "Gold Diggers of 1935." Busby Berkely puts on some serious witchcraft in the musical numbers.

Finally, two affluent young men commit a murder just to prove they can in Alfred Hitchock's classic "Rope."

All this plus DVDS, Nerd News, Cool Junk Mails, A Wonder Woman spoiler in the stinger, Ridley Scott Sucks Chat, a death in the family and so much more!

JFD366: Forbidden World, Fist of the Northstar, Hunk

Jun 2, 2017

Description:

  This week on JFD we sell our movie selections and our dignity for a few measly bucks as we  let our Patreon donors pick the flicks!
Up first, our boy Josh brings us Forbidden World from 1982. In this low-budget, Roger Corman-produced, Alien rip-off, a space cowboy docks on a research ship where some scientists have inadvertently created a space mutant who is turning the crew into slimy puddles.
Up next, sweet bro Matt offers up Fist of the Northstar from 1986. This classic anime flick condenses some stories from an already popular Manga and TV show into a post-apocalyptic blood bath.
And finally, the man himself; Mickey throws us Hunk from 1987. This goofy, PG-rated, wish fulfillment beach comedy centers on a nerdy computer programmer who makes a deal with one of Satan's sexy minions to become a bodacious hunk in exchange for his soul. 
[Want to be a big shot like these guys and pick the movies we watch on Junk Food Dinner? Check out our Patreon page and find out how.]
All this plus witty banter between friends, water slide chat, our producer calls in, Alien Covenant chat, Baywatch, our world famous weekly Nerd News and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD365: Mad Bull 34, Serial Experiments Lain, The Dragon Dentist

May 25, 2017

Description:

If you're sad like we're sad and you're not sure why, it's probably because everyone's favorite new Junk Food Dinner theme month of 2017 (so far) - Ani-May, is finally coming to an end. But fret not, faithful junkie - we're closing it out in grand fashion with a trio of actual, genuine, Japanese anime flicks (or shows, or something)!

First up! You'll never believe the crazy hijinks (both sexual and violent in nature) going on in Mad Bull 34 (from 1990). It's one of those standard buddy cop flicks where dudes get their heads lopped off by oncoming trains, if you get my drift. You'll love this one.

Next! Sean channels his inner goth teenage girl with 1998's stylish but sleepy Serial Experiments Lain! It's got enough shots of power lines to keep him interested, but will Kevin or Parker give any fucks?

Finally, a film that Parker Bowman has been waiting for, for a long time. The Dragon Dentist from 2017 marks a certain milestone for Mr. Bowman on a certain Letterboxd website, which is meaningful somehow. Also, dragons get their dental hygiene looked after. It's Japanimation!

All this plus witty banter between friends, The Frisbie Opinion, Eric from Omaha, a Julian Sands classic our beloved Parker Bowman hasn't seen, monsters made out of nipples and shitty crap about time travel, Kevin Moss lying through his teeth about Oldies dot com, a Hot Topic Monster Mash, a Whitman's Sampler of super ghoulish horror flicks, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, half-dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, semi-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD's June Movie Schedule

Description:

Hey, kiddos! Here's a look at what we're up to in June!

It's time once again for JFDecades! Unlike last year, each decade won't be getting its own week, instead we'll do one movie from each decade for 3 weeks, covering 90 years worth of cinema magic. If you'll remember, we randomized who'd get which week and it turned out horribly for Parker who got the 20s, 30s and 40s. The rest was divvied up between Sean and Kevin.

We're also doing another Patreon-picked episode, too! It's gonna be a hoot!

Until June, spend some time on our YouTube page or donating to our Patreon and getting bonus episodes!

JFD363: Fritz the Cat, Mr. Sprinkles, Where the Dead Go to Die

May 12, 2017

Description:


We're all adults here, right? That doesn't mean we still can't watch cartoons. Ani-May rolls right along as we take a look at three adult animation oddities.

Up first, it's the granddaddy of adult animation, Fritz the Cat from 1972. Directed by Ralph Bakshi and based off the comics of R. Crumb, the x-rated 'toon made a lot of money and kicked open the door for cartoons to be dirty.

Next, back in 2007, Jack Black, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab teamed up to create Acceptable TV, an animated sketch show that briefly ran on VH1. One of the more popular skits was Mr. Sprinkles about a Cat-in-the-Hat type creature who's losing his mind because kids are never bored anymore. From the creative team behind Rick & Morty.

And finally, what do you get when you mix PS1 cut-scene style computer animation and Ghoul Summer-worthy subject matter? Where the Dead Go to Die from 2012. It's horrendous.

All this plus witty banter between friends, listener voicemails, wrong theme songs Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD362: Evil Toons, The Lawnmower Man, Cool World

May 6, 2017

Description:

We're kicking off a new (annual?) tradition at Junk Food Dinner - Ani-May, our month-long tribute to animation in cult films! But we're easing into it first with a "Live Action / Animation" theme show - three flicks that blur the lines between the two mediums!

First up! Fred Olen Ray's poster/cover art for Evil Toons (from 1992) promises a whole lot of spooky/sexy cartoon action. But can it deliver, or will the budget be too impossibly low to accomodate any actual animation? And will we still be charmed by it?

Next! In what some are calling a potential "Freado Pick", we discuss the world's only Officially Desiginated non-adaptation of a Stephen King novel: The Lawnmower Man! "Groundbreaking" CGI animation sequences are used in the movie's many Virtual Reality sequences, where an "intellectually disabled" man learns latin and telekensis through the power of drugs. Starring the pilot from Lost! Also from 1992!

Finally, a film that Paramount studios clearly had no idea what to do with, and maybe we don't either. Cool World finds Ralph Bakshi near the end of his career, and Brad Pitt at the start of his. It finds a home for cartoon characters and flesh and blood alike. But does it find out a way to balance cartoonish piano-dropping gags with dark, sexual satire? Only JFD can find out. This one's ALSO from 1992?!

All this plus witty banter between friends, realistic hair and fabrics, pissed off Australians, a Carpenter's joke, the best & worst voicemail callers, steaming open root cellars, repeated disc picking, realistic film-watching standards, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD361: White of the Eye, Prince of Darkness, Shock 'em Dead

Apr 28, 2017

Description:

We're back with a game-changing, life-affirming episode, Junkies!

Our man Hatless Jackson Stewart joins us to discuss a fateful concert in LA where Parker, Sean, Jackson, Wife and Travis from GwarCast saw the immortal Corey Feldman LIVE. Did we find out what was up with the youth? Tune in to find out!

As for Nerd News and DVDs, there's only one piece hot enough for this episode. Jackson's movie, "Beyond the Gates" drops on Blu Ray and DVD this week, featuring an audio commentary track by the Junk Food Dinner boys! Go buy it!

As for movies, we're doing three picked by our Junk Food Dinner Patreon Pals this week. Speaking of Patreon, our first 2-hour bonus episode just dropped for $5 patrons. Go check it out at Patreon! First, a woman learns that her stereo equipment-installing husband may be a killer in "White of the Eye."

Next, a group of scientists and priests learn that Satan may be imprisoned in the basement of a local church in John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness."

Finally, Traci Lords stars in "Shock em Dead," a film about a guitar player who sells his soul to an old voodoo lady to become a rock god.

JFD360: Hero at Large, Problem Child, Stay Tuned

Apr 21, 2017

Description:


Come and knock on our door, junkies, as we celebrate the life and career of one of the most likable dudes ever, John Ritter as we explore some of his goofy flicks.

Up first, Ritter plays a struggling actor in New York City who moonlights cosplaying as a superhero to help promote a new movie based on the character, but when he stops a robbery of a bodega in costume, the city gets Captain Avenger fever and Ritter has to decide if he wants to continue the superhero act in Hero at Large from 1980.

Then, John Ritter and Amy Yasbeck play a childless couple who can't have kids but when they decide to adopt they get more than they bargained for when their adopted child turns out to be sadistic bastard in 1990's Problem Child.

And finally, John Ritter plays a TV-obsessed husband and father who gets himself and his wife sucked into a hellish TV world filled with unholy parodies of pop culture when he purchases a TV off a minion of Satan himself (Jeffrey Jones) in Stay Tuned from 1992.

All this plus witty banter between friends, listener voicemails, insight into Parker's fuck style, Nerd News, new MST3k chat,  Fast & Furious vs Star Wars, Blu-ray Picks, Monchichis, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD359: Mudhoney, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, Supervixens

Apr 13, 2017

Description:

It's Russ Meyer week, and naturally we're busting out of our tops along with the lovely ladies of the rural Fellini! So button up your blouse and get ready to hit the road, we've got some flicks to discuss.

First up! An early Russ Meyer effort pairs him with cinematographer Walter Schenk, who'd go on to lens Faster Pussycat. But who cares about Dutch angles when we've got American titties on display? It's a back country bra burning barn stormer! Of course we're talking 1965's Mudhoney!

Next! In what can likely be called Roger Ebert's cinematic low-point, and likely John Lazar's most titillating performance, we meet up with Russ Meyer in his sole big-budget studio production - a strange pseduosequel/parody of a well-known but not particularly well-loved teen drug drama. It's OUR happening and it freaks US out, man! We go Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (from 1970), and some of us may never come back!

Finally, Charles Napier shows up and things really go to shit. A later period Russ Meyer flick finds him fixated on Looney Tunes style cartoon gaffes, and of course, a wholesome dose of big-ass boobs. It's a film experience none of us could ever forget, nor would we want to. It's the incomparable Supervixens from 1975.

All this plus witty banter between friends, the rudest titties of any JFD of all time, more Patreon shilling, Ricky's SXSW report, a double dose of news sadness, cartoons that harshed our mellow, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, partially hydrogenated gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD358: Hugo the Hippo, American Drive-In, True Romance

Apr 8, 2017

Description:

We're back with three movies and some big news about the show, junkies!

First, an evil Sultan imports hippos to wage a war against nazi sharks in the trippy 1975 kids' cartoon, "Hugo the Hippo."

Next, a group of misfits go to see a zombie movie at a drive in. Hijinx ensue. And so does rape for some reason. In 1985's "American Drive In."

Finally, two young lovers leave Detroit with a bag full of cocaine and turn up in Hollywood looking to make enough to run away together in the Quentin Tarantino-penned "True Romance."

All this, plus big news, begging for money, DVDs, Nerd News, Ridley Scott sucks, Our parents come home early, Mr. Mabowow, junk mails and so much more!

Mar 30, 2017

Description:



JFD returns after a long week of partying with a king-sized episode to celebrate our 7-year anniversary!

Up first, the gents regale you with tales of their meet up in Cincinnati where they saw bad movies on the big screen, attended the HorrorHound Convention, saw one of the last performances of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and most importantly ate lots of coneys and 3-ways.

We also break out The Randomizer 5000 to randomize some contest winners and assign some decades for our upcoming JFDecades theme shows.

And as is tradition on JFD every anniversary, we take a look back at all the movies we've watched for the podcast over the last year and recount our Top 5 Favorite and Bottom 5 Least Favorite flicks that we were forced to watch.

All this plus witty banter between friends, listener voicemails, Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD356: Even Dwarfs Started Small, Burden of Dreams, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

Mar 16, 2017

Description:

The THRILLING conclusion to our month-long tribute to ego-stroking concludes with our final Me-Arch episode: Sean Byron Presents: A Junk Food Dinner Tribute to the Film Legacy of Werner Herzog!Join along with us as we explore three flicks from the pleasantly grim madman of Bavarian cinema.

First up! An early effort from Werner Herzog has him chronicling a particularly chaotic, if plotless, day in the life of a fictional band of dwarves out in the Canary Islands. The film of course is 1970's Even Dwarfs Started Small! and we're here to report that it does not skimp on the little people!

Next! Making any movie is hard work, but Herzog finds ways to make them maddeningly difficult. Never before was this more obvious than in Les Blank's 1982 documentary Burden of Dreams, which follows Werner as he attempts to pull off the impossible while making Fitzcarraldo. And then the soccer ball goes flat!

Finally, we end the show as we end all truly great shows: smoking crack rocks with Nicolas Cage in a gritty post-Katrina New Orleans. Or at least, that's what it felt like after watching this movie. It's 2009's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, and it just MIGHT change all your thoughts on Nic Cage.

All this plus witty banter between friends, chats about Julia Ducornau's RAW, The Plastic Dome of Norma Jean, the Sweetest Man in Washington DC, King Kong News, Godzilla News, Other Giant Monster News, sick animation burns, Parker's fear of emotional intimacy, continued apologies to Robert from Podcast Town, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, mega-decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD354: A Bucket of Blood, The Wild Angels, Frankenstein Unbound

Mar 3, 2017

Description:


This week we kick off Me-arch; an entire month where each week one of your JFD hosts picks a director who they love and highlights three flicks from their career. This week, it's Kevin's week and he chose The King of the B's himself, Roger Corman!

Up first, Dick Miller stars as a put-upon busboy at a beatnik coffee house who only wants to be accepted by the artists and poets who frequent it. Unfortunately, he has no real talent. However, when he accidentally kills a cat he gets the idea to cover it in clay and pass it off as art. When that gets him noticed, he sets his sights on bigger prey in 1959's A Bucket of Blood.

Then, Peter Fonda leads a gang of misfit bikers who roam Southern California looking for a good time in 1966's The Wild Angels. But when one of their crew (Bruce Dern) gets shot up by the cops, the gang hatches a plan to bust him out of the hospital but fails to realize dudes with gunshot wounds probably need medical attention.

And finally, John Hurt is a futuristic scientist who develops a new weapon for the US Government, but it also opens a time warp that sends him back to 1817's Switzerland where he runs into Victor Frankenstein (Raul Julia), his monster and Mary Shelley (Bridget Fonda) in 1990's Frankenstein Unbound.

All this plus witty banter between friends, the death of the IMDB message boards, Sean's adventures at the opera, impressions of Get Out, a surprise appearance by Parker's dog, backlash for Sean's Gwar views, sad Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD353: Circuitry Man, Hardware, Firepower

Feb 23, 2017

Description:

We're locked in the future as another Sci-Fi Ebruary is released into the past. It's true: this Dystopian Action theme show is our final show for this monthlong fictional and scientific journey. But there's always next year, or is there? Well, at least we've got a great guest host to close this one out: director Jason Krawczyk (He Never Died, The Briefcase, Clown Holocaust!)

First up! A confusingly titled, confusingly plotted, and confusingly confusing journey from future Los Angeles to future New York leads to some unexpected activies in 1990's Circuitry Man! It has robot(s)!

Next! Hugely fallen-off director Richard Stanley's widespread acclaims have to be sourced from some film, and it's definitely not his Island of Dr Moreau - could his true virtues be on display in 1990's Hardware? It's certainly got robot(s)!

Finally, we end the show as we end all shows: in a trash-fire ridden future Los Angeles, watching secondrate kickboxing fights from the comfort of The Palace theater's dingy bleachers. It's 1993's Firepower, and I don't think it actually has any robots.

All this plus witty banter between friends, a rollicking discussion in regards to the making of HE NEVER DIED, no news or Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD351: Hackers, Double Down, Summer Wars

Feb 10, 2017

Description:


Break out your 28.8 KBPS modem and your brand new laptop with 4 whole MB of RAM  because it's time to hack the planet!
Up first, Jonny Lee Miller (Sherlock) is a young computer delinquent who moves to NYC and falls in with a group of hacker teens including Matthew Lillard, Laurence Mason and Angelina Jolie. When they uncover a criminal plot by an internet security nerd played by Fisher Stevens their freedom is threatened in the ultra-90's cyber classic(?) Hackers.
Next, we delve even further into the world of vanity film maker Neil Breen with 2005's Double Down. In this low-budget action flick Breen plays a renegade hacker and former soldier hired to to take down the Las Vegas Strip for two months using only his 4 laptops and 3 flip phones. Fueled only by his mistrust of the government and cans of tuna, he's a one man hacking machine.
And finally, we journey to a land of animated hackers in 2009's Summer Wars. This stylish anime, directed by Mamoru Hosoda, blends a colorful cyber battle zone with a grounded and touching family story making for a unique experience even for non-otakus.
All this plus witty banter between friends, Sean doesn't mention La La Land even once, Sci-Fi Super Bowl ads, the early death of the new Jason movie, more on Jackie Chan's Bollywood adventure, hacking memories, Blu-ray Picks, songs computer love, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

Sean Byron's Top 10 of 2016!

Jan 29, 2017

Description:

Well, it's finally happened. The apocalypse is coming. And what better way to celebrate than to look fondly back on that distant past, the magical and memorable and mystical year of 2016? Here's 40 movies I liked last year, with thoughts on ten of them.
Honorable MentionsHere's a bunch of movies I liked this year but couldn't fit in. They're pretty much in order of preference, but as always these things are pretty subjective based on the phase of the moon.  
40. Don't Breathe 39. Amanda Knox 38. Eat That Question 37. Cock and Bull 36. Raiders! 35. Swiss Army Man 34. Kicks 33. Paterson 32. De Palma 31. Los Punks 30. Moonlight 29. Tickled 28. Dog Eat Dog 27. Beyond the Gates 26. Hunt for the Wilderpeople 25. Into the Inferno 24. Lo and Behold 23. Ip Man 3 22. Shin Godzilla 21. Weiner 20. Kubo & the Two Strings 19. Autopsy of Jane Doe 18. Nocturnal Animals 17. Jackie 16. Chongqing Hot Pot 15. Certain Women 14. Silence 13. The Handmaiden 12. The 13th 11. The Lobster
Operation MekongDante Lam's shaggy, action-packed war movie is probably a bit more ambitious than it is well-crafted, but it still packs a mean napalm-soaked punch. If John Woo had been working on bigger budget Cannon Films releases in the post-Rambo mid-80s, this movie would be directly ripping it off. But that didn't happen so you should probably just give this a shot instead. It's got some great slow-mo machine-gunning water battles with a ludicrous amounts of bullets expended. It's not high art, but it's a fun time.MoanaI've got a mixed history with Disney, a company that has produced some of my very favorite things in the world (the charm and physical humor of the Ub Iwerks era Mickey shorts, the fantasy and living set decoration of Disneyland, the Wonderful World of Color), they've also produced a fair load of bullshit: the television wasteland of The Disney Channel, everyone's least favorite Halloween costume-turned-cartoon Frozen, barf-inducing post-Disney Pixar movies, horribly lame and visionless Marvel Universe movies, and what will probably turn out to be the ruination of Star Wars Universe as well (if it wasn't already ruined). But Moana's great! It captures the spirit of classic Disney musical animated features and offers a pleasantly imagined peek into a fantastically fascinating faraway world. I wouldn't have expected the hardest I'd laugh at a movie in 2016 would be at a Disney movie, but that "You're Welcome" song really got me somehow. Also, it wasn't a very funny year in general.20th Century WomenThe kind of warm, revealing, engaging, but hard-to-classify film often given the miserable label of "dramedy", 20th Century Women deserves to sit outside of simple categorization. It's a really nicely rendered look inside a believable family dynamic, with honest looks at middle aged ennui, teen angst, and the complications of sexuality across all ages. Certainly the most honest screenplay I saw this year, with dialogue that felt extremely true to life - Mike Mills really seems to be writing from his own life here. While a lightly comic take on an atypical American family isn't usually something I'd sign up for, the combination of that specific authorial voice, the nicely realized period touches (like the solid early post-punk soundtrack, and 1979 teenage bedrooms), and great performances from a well rounded cast really won me over.Green RoomI wanna see Jeremy Saulnier have a long, John Carpenter-esque career where he keeps delivering lean and mean genre flicks at us in a classic-banger fashion. Here's to that beautiful dream.O.J. Made in AmericaIs this a movie? Well, I saw it at the Laemmle's Music Hall 3 on Wilshire in Beverly Hills - that sturdy stalwart of nondescript art deco movie halls, the kind you find in Los Angeles only after years of staring past it down the block, waiting for a bus, and then the detailed edge work of the building becomes apparent, and you notice the faded old marquee still has current movie titles on it, and the single teenaged employee running snackbar and ticketbooth is actually a real person and not the ghost of cinematic memories past, who directs you to the plush red-upholstered screening room, smelling distinctly of the early nineteen-eighties, where initially you expect you'll enjoy a solo screening for the entire eight and half hour runtime (with ten minutes of trailers and two ten minute intermissions) but at the last minute are surprised to hear the loud, persistent coughs of a single older (seventies) man just one row behind, looking just as skeptical as you are that the entire theatre isn't just a weird lingering memory that doesn't exist in a corporeal sense and may just be prone to sudden vanishing spells but who nonetheless makes it about halfway through the movie before mumbling about a parking ticket after an intermission and leaving through the unusually heavy rain - so I think that qualifies it as a movie. It's a great movie.The Love WitchI love that Witch! Practically pulsating with poppy period presentation, this felt like a weirdly original way to do a throw-back flick, which are more and more common these days. It works on both a surface level pseudothriller, as a tongue-mostly-in-cheek send-up of them, and also on a third level as a stoned-out feminist kill-mantra. Be careful watching this in publicly monitored spaces.
The Neon DemonWhenever people say "it's not for everyone, but I like it", it can seem like a weird humblebrag about having "unusual" tastes. That said, I like this Neon Demon, even if it's not for everyone. This may also be the most "big screen required" movie I saw in 2016. Even though it's not a big budget action movie, wasn't shot on IMAX, and barely got a wide release, this was one I was extremely pleased to have seen theatrically rather than at home. The element of having half the crowd freak out and walk out might have been part of the fun, but the kaleidoscopic collision of neon imagery and the Martinez soundtrack was so immersive projected on that huge silver slab. Having only seen it once so far, it's actually the kind of movie that I could see jumping up or dropping down in the rankings based on a second viewing, but that's something I'll have to find out for myself the next time it plays town.The WailingIn a year where several very good Asian films got (limited) American theatrical releases (and in a year where Asia got (wide) releases of very bad American films), The Wailing stood out. Memorable characters, just on the edge of comedic quirkiness but not enough to undercut the horror, help to draw you into the mystery unfolding in rural South Korea. Na Hong-jin's clever blend of police procedural and exorcism flick is full of surprises, and provides a great entry point to recent Korean genre cinema.ArrivalSlower paced science fiction on the order of 2001 can be a fertile ground for social commentary, and there's plenty of that on the periphery of Arrival, with world leaders failing to reach simple compromises to maintain order when an alien species first make contact. Perhaps the big revelation here though is Amy Adams, who has been on a hot streak lately but really does a great job with her character here, striking a perfect balance of warm reliability and intelligent authority in a role that isn't often given to women in Hollywood's current climate. Jeremy Renner's not bad, either! And the cinematographer here should be commemoratively bronzed and hung on a wall after his death. See it!La La LandThis is a movie that's been endlessly discussed (on Junk Food Dinner and elsewhere), but it certainly struck a chord with me in a way no other movies in 2016 did. While some of the backlash criticisms seem silly and overreaching to me (ascribing whitesplaining/mansplaining issues to this is one of the rare cases where even I get a tinge of 'the SJW blues'), I can see the point in others; specifically, this is a film heavily concerned with nostalgia, which is at best a masturbatory pursuit and sometimes can be an actively destructive force. If you're the type of moviegoer who has a gut aversion to nostalgia, it's going to be a hard sell. But it's the way in which Damien Chazelle marries modern filmmaking techniques with a golden age aesthetic that validates his exercise in historical romanticization. Were this film not so dizzyingly well-executed, with pitch-perfect editing, beautifully staged and photographed sequences, and remarkably evocative costuming, it could feel like a lame duck attempt to replicate something that was special for the time, but weirdly anachronistic now. Gosling and Stone's performances, particular in single-take scenes requiring them to sing, dance, and play piano in cheat-preventing close-ups, only help to draw the viewer into Chazelle's fantasy world. The result, even after four screenings, had me intermittently grinning and tearing up consistently throughout the entire runtime. And while there might but not a whole lot of social relevance, or mind-blowing new concepts on display in La La Land, as a pure experience, a blending of images and sounds in sequence, it cannot be topped this year.

JFD348: Hammer, Every Which Way But Loose, Matilda

Jan 19, 2017

Description:

Well, tap your nose and call me Mills Lane, because it's Boxing Week here at JFD headquarters. It's a pugilist picture party here as we study the sweet science. Lace up those gloves, strap on those boots, and get in the ring with your Junk Food Dinner pals this week as we check out three punch-related picks. Let's get it on!

First up! We take a look at the movie that gave Fred “The Hammer” Williamson his nickname, an early blaxploitation classic that follows the rise of a mafia-backed dock-worker turned boxer in a seedy 1972 Los Angeles. It’s Hammer!

The San Fernando Valley was different in 1978. People drove 1940’s pick-up trucks, tended to livestock, and participated in line-dancing. All this while escaping biker gangs on the run with an orangutan. At least, that’s the story told by Clint Eastwood’s Every Which Way But Loose!

For reasons that are unclear, our final selection is part Kangaroo Boxing sports drama, part mafia picture, and part McDonald’s commercial. When a mysterious Irishman arrives in 1978 New York City with his rabbit-punching marsupial, Eliot Gould sees dollar signs in the knockouts and books a series of matches, leading to a thrillingly long-winded final match! It’s Matilda!

All this plus witty banter between friends, speaking of ghost circuses, them news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD347: Dead Ringers, Twin Sitters, Enemy

Jan 13, 2017

Description:


JFD returns with a brand new episode dedicated to the identical siblings that make life so interesting, twins!

Up first, David Cronenberg brings us a tale of twin gynecologist brothers, both played by Jeremy Irons, who share everything; their swanky apartment, their career and even their women. When one of them falls for a mature actress played by Geneviève Bujold, their perfect world begins to fall apart, and as you'd expect from Cronenberg, things get weird in Dead Ringers from 1988.

Then, we revisit the Barbarian Brothers (Peter and David Paul), the twin body builders who ham it up in the dopey kids' flick Twin Sitters from 1994. John Paragon (Pee-Wee's Playhouse) directs this goofy comedy about a pair of muscle-bound losers who are hired by a millionaire to protect his twin nephews from George Lazenby and his henchmen who are out to get them.

And finally, Jake Gyllenhaal plays a college professor who spots his doppelganger in a movie and becomes obsessed with finding him and figuring out what the hell is going on and even gets involved in some "spider play" in Enemy from 2013.

All this plus witty banter between friends, La La Land love, Chucky's back, a classic comes to blu-ray, Jackie Chan's Bollywood adventure, euphemisms for squeezing one out, Blu-ray Picks, songs about twins, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

Kyle from Kentucky's Top 10 Movies of 2016

Jan 13, 2017

Description:


10. Blair Witch

I really love the Blair Witch movies for some reason. I think it has something to do with being helpless in the woods. I know most people weren't crazy about this,but I really liked the atmosphere and the creepiness.

9. The Nice Guys 
A really fun buddy movie set in the 70’s. I thought it probably made me laugh more than any other movie of 2016.




8. Green Room

This was an edge of your seat horror movie with good performances. I love seeing Patrick Stewart play an evil character.

7. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice 

I know this movie has a few issues with it, including especially the reason Superman and Batman start working together, but I love it. Ben Affleck was really great as Batman. He came off as a realistic badass. I didn't think I would like this one, but I was truly impressed.

6. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 

This movie has a great story and the best CGI I have ever seen in a movie. The star battles are so beautiful and intense. I really liked the ending.

5. The Accountant

There’s lots of great violence in this one. Ben Affleck plays an autistic badass accountant.


4. Blood Father 

Cool action movie with lots of great visuals

3. Hell or High Water

What a fantastic job by Jeff Bridges and the rest of the cast in this movie. I really loved the relationships bet
ween the brothers and between the partners.

2. Hacksaw Ridge 

Mel Gibson did a great job with this true WW2 story. It was shot and acted beautifully and really showed the nastiness of the war.

1. Nocturnal Animals

This movie was a really big surprise for me. The acting was perfect and the novel that plays out in the movie could have been a great movie by itself.

Check out Kyle when he calls in on JFD!

Parker's Top 10 Movies of 2016

Jan 11, 2017

Description:

I liked a lot of movies in 2016, but here's the schlitiziest of them.


10. Frank & Lola (directed by Matthew Ross)
This movie's a lot like "Chasing Amy" except really sleazy and sexy and mixed with a really depressing old school crime noir. Michael Shannon and Imogene Poots are rad as hell and the movie's full of tough guy emotions. It's also set in Las Vegas, but not the Ocean's 11 part, the artsy, "normal" downtown part, which is rare to see on film.


9. Anomalisa
(directed by Charlie Kaufman)
I'm not normally the biggest fan of Charlie Kaufman, but his use of stop motion puppetry to tell a very human and uncomfortable story is about as heartbreaking as it gets.

8. Train to Busan
(directed by Yeon Sang-Ho)
Definitely one of the top 3 zombie movies of the last decade, this funny and touching South Korean flick follows a group of people on a train to what they think is safety from zombie hordes.

7. Weiner
(directed by Josh Kriegman,
Elyse Steinberg)
Watching disgraced politician Anthony Weiner methodically practice a tearful apology before a press conference will lead you to never trust another politician again. (Hopefully).

6. Everybody Wants Some!!!
(directed by Richard Linklater)
Cool bros drinking beer and having fun with their large muscles and cool cars. 100% fun.

5. Captain America: Civil War
(directed by the Russo brothers)
This movie exemplifies the best of what big blockbusters can do. There's a huge fight scene that is just an insanely fun spectacle followed by a tense unfun climax that holds real emotional stakes for very believable, flesh-out heroes. Also, extra points for Spider-Man, Vision wearing a sweater vest, one of the better Marvel villains and the "No You Move" speech.

4. Hacksaw Ridge
(directed by Mel Gibson)
Say what you will about Mel Gibson, but he makes large, oldschool movies that are rare these days. He's also really into the idea that suffering and horrendous emotional and physical pain can be transcendent. Which is what all of us Smiths fans already know and appreciate. Also, the film is about WWII, which is my jam now that I am an old, old man.

3. Arrival
(directed by Denis Villenueve)
The minutiae of humanity's first contact with aliens is more of an edge-of-your seat tense thrillride than all the "Independence Days" of the world, if done right. And Arrival does it right, while saying huge things about the minutiae of communication and humanity.

2. Hardcore Henry
(directed by Ilya Naishuller)
Fun, weird, violent, different, great soundtrack, amazing cast. Hardcore Henry has it all. I haven't found a movie so endlessly rewatchable in years. And if there were a JFD version of the Oscars, Sharlto Copley would have won for Best Actor.

1. Green Room (directed by Jeremy Saulnier
This movie is so tense and scary that I literally teared up during one of the scenes. I didn't even know that was possible. The cast is brilliant and, like I said on the show, between this and Blue Ruin, watching Jeremy Saulnier make movies right now must have been what it was like to be a genre fan when Carpenter was cranking out things like Halloween and The Thing during his high point.

Honorable Mentions: Final Deletion, De Palma, Pass Thru, The Conjuring 2, The Purge: Election Year, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Beyond the Gates and Space Cop.

The Worst: Cabin Fever, The Greasy Strangler, Suicide Squad, 31 and Yoga Hosers.

Kevin's Top 10 Movies of 2016

Jan 6, 2017

Description:


While 2016 was by all accounts a pretty shitty year, there were definitely some fun and unique flicks projected onto your cinema and drive-in screens over the past 365 days. Here are my favorite ones I saw:

10. The Neon Demon (d: Nicolas Winding Refn)
I was super pumped for Winding Refn's horror follow up to Only God Forgives and Drive (two movies I really enjoyed). And while The Neon Demon left me a little disappointed, you can't argue that it's not a very cool looking film and a unique movie-going experience in 2016.

9. Beyond the Gates (d: Jackson Stewart)
It's no secret that director Jackson Stewart is boys with your hosts here on JFD, however, that makes it all the more exciting that a dude we know directed one of the best horror movies of the year. One of my biggest complaints of modern horror is the lack of fun in the genre and Beyond
the Gates delivers the fun with a capital F.

8. The Nice Guys (d: Shane Black)
Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling play 70's dress up as a pair of private dicks investigating a missing girl and the death of a porn star. It's one part Lethal Weapon and two parts Big Lebowski and was surprisingly a lot of fun.

7. 10 Cloverfield Lane (d: Dan Trachtenberg)
I liked Cloverfield alright, but had no strong attachment to it, so when a semi-sequel showed up in theaters seemingly out of nowhere in early '16, I didn't have a lot of expectations. However, great performances from John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead paired with a tense and intriguing plot made this a surprise winner for me.

6. Shin Godzilla (d: Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi)
After an admirable but ultimately disappointing American effort at Godzilla in 2014, I was ready for the Japanese to take the reins again and show us how it's done. The first Japanese Godzilla film to play in US theaters in almost 20 years returns the series to the more serious tone of the original Gojira. And while the dialogue-heavy film may not exactly thrill viewers looking for epic monster battles, I still really enjoyed it.

5. The Love Witch (d: Anna Biller)
Anna Biller meticulously crafts a sexy homage to the Technicolor flicks of the 60's
and 70's that looks and feels spot on. Just as a visual feat alone, this movie deserves your attention. The story gets a bit long and goofy at times but overall was a totally unique and exciting visual experience.

4. Hardcore Henry (d: Ilya Naishuller)
While I was intrigued by the idea of a hyper-violent, over-the-top first person action orgy, I genuinely didn't expect to have as much fun with Hardcore Henry as I did. District 9.
The movie never lets up and is a ton of fun. Plus Sharlto Copley is great in it, delivering his best performance since District 9.

3. The Wailing (d: Hong-jin Na)
Sean Byron hipped me to this South Korean crime thriller/supernatural horror flick and I'm glad he did. Probably the creepiest and most intense horror film of the year, it's also expertly directed. Star Do-wan Kwak is instantly likable and relatable as a man pushed to the breaking point by all the fucked up shit happening around him.

2. Tickled (d: David Farrier & Dylan Reeve)
Probably the movie I talked about most with friends this year. Tickled is a documentary the looks into the weird world of competitive tickling videos on the internet. While the subject seems silly enough at first, the film takes a dark turn as the filmmakers dig deeper into who is behind the videos and things get really awkward and weird. It'll definitely leave you wanting to know more.

1. Green Room (d: Jeremy Saulnier)
Jeremy Saulnier follows up his fantastic Blue Ruin with another gritty, realistic and violent tale of what can happen when shit hits the fan. This intense thriller was definitely the best movie I saw on the big screen in 2016. Great performances by the young cast, lots of gore, distrust and punk music, this is a must-see.

JFD Rewind Episode #3 - The Hunger, Elves, Earthquake

Jan 1, 2017

Description:


With our planet currently engaged in a never-ending cycle of mourning, we took the time to put together a heartfelt tribute to our fallen heroes, because we care. Unlike the other podcast networks' yearly retrospectives, the fine program we deliver to you this week should be free of all crass commercialism (buy a t-shirt) or attempts to exploit the dead (featuring The Ghost of Freado). If your year has been as bad as ours, you'll need this episode to nurse the horrible hangover that 2017 is sure to become.

So it's come to this: yet another Junk Food Dinner clip show. This week on Junk Food Dinner Rewind: a carefully curated collection of the finest unheard listener voicemails, surprising musical beds, and three classic JFD reviews culled from the vaults. And don't worry - it's got just enough original content that JFD completists will feel slightly guilty having skipped it.

Up first! We get arty with some sexy blood-thirsty immortals in 1983’s The Hunger starring Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon and David Bowie. Featuring guest reviewer megastar Jason Frisbie!

Up next! A pretty young mall employee with a severely damaged home life is befriended by a jolly, bearded man (Dan Haggerty, with smoke encircling his head like a wreath) and together they must stop the Nazis from using evil elves and a magic crystal to create a master race in the deeply dark and disturbing Elves from 1989.

Finally! Things get shaky as we take a look at Earthquake from 1974. When 'the big one' finally hits California, it causes mass destruction; crumbled buildings, fucked up roads and dead bodies everywhere. George Kennedy plays a gruff but kind-hearted cop who tries to keep the peace, while Chuck Heston tries to rescue his wife (Ava Gardner) and his mistress (Geneviève Bujold). Throw in appearances by Richard Roundtree as an Evel Knievel-type stuntman and Walter Matthau as the saddest, drunkest pimp/clowns you'll ever see and you've got quite the spectacle.

All this plus witty banter between friends, witty banter between Freados, zero Nerd Newsies, no week's DVD & blu-ray releases, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, robot voices, musical interludes, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a little bit more!

JFD345:The NeverEnding Story (Audio Commentary)

Dec 24, 2016

Description:


As we close out 2016, we celebrate another milestone; our 1,000th movie reviewed! As we do with each 100th movie on JFD, we are doing a full-length audio commentary for a movie that you, the listeners, picked. Although, this year, much like the Presidential Elections here in the US, there is some speculation about foreign tampering with the results.

Nevertheless, we soldier on and yack our way through the 1984 children's fantasy tale The NeverEnding Story. This German special effects epic about a boy becoming engrossed in a fantasy adventure book was a staple of a lot of our childhoods, but how does it hold up? Grab your copy of NeverEnding Story, pop it in and watch along with us to find out!

WARNING: This is not a typical episode of Junk Food Dinner. This is an audio commentary. This episode is meant to be listened to while you watch The NeverEnding Story. If you try to listen to this episode and you are not watching The NeverEnding Story along with us, a lot of this will not make any sense.
