On this episode, our chronological look at the career of the wonderful Carol Kane continues with 1979’s LA SABINA, a José Luis Borau film that is only partially available in English.. but we watched it anyway! It’s a drama filled with infidelity, regret, and a myster…
 
RSS/iTunes/Spotify We continue our chronological look at the career of the great Paul Bartel with his feature length debut PRIVATE PARTS from 1972. Equal parts perverse and hilarious, it’s a film that is filled with twists and turns and set the blueprint for much of what was to come from the always unpredictable director. We’re also looking at Bart…
 
RSS/iTunes/Spotify It’s an ALL COMICS episode of JodoWOWsky with our hosts examining three Alejandro Jodorowsky graphic novel collaborations throughout the late 70s and 80s. We start with a deep dive into THE EYES OF THE CAT, the (sorta!) first collaboration between Jodorowsky and the legendary Moebius from 1978. It’s gorgeous, highly experimental,…

Starring Nero as an engineer who finds his safety (and masculinity) threatened by a post office robbery and decides to take the (street) law into his own hands. Badly! More nuanced than one might expect, and feat…
 
It took 12 episodes to get here, but after the box-office success of SNAKE IN THE EAGLE'S SHADOW, Jackie Chan suddenly finds himself a bankable martial arts star. So why not do it all again, only better? DRUNKEN MASTER reunites Jackie with basically everyone who worked on the previous film, including producer Ng See-yuen, director Yuen Woo-ping, an…

For such a, um, righteous endeavor, we needed a terrific guest, and who better than Shock …

On this episode of Cinema Fantastica we're going all the way to Melbourne, Australia and the 2016 edition of the Monster Fest film festival which featured the Amsterdam-set supernatural slasher film THE WINDMILL MASSACRE and Paul Schrader's unhinged crime film DOG EAT DOG. Our two hosts make their case for the superiority of their film of choice, b…
 
On BARTEL ME SOMETHING GOOD, host Adrianna Gober is looking semi-chronologically at the life and career of director/writer/actor Paul Bartel, along with regular Cinema Smorgasbord hosts Liam and Doug!

Despite his increasing success with comics, Jodorowsky was still reeling from the failure of his Dune project when he decided to adapt Reginald Campbell's "Poo Lorn of the Elephants" into the disastrous 1980 film TUSK. Disowned by the director (“Don’t see Tusk. I bury the film.”) and nearly impossible to track down in a watchable form, the movie re…
 
On this pulse pounding episode of George Kennedy is my Copilot we're looking at the techno-thriller/Death Wish knockoff THE HUMAN FACTOR from 1975 featuring George Kennedy mowing down the left-wing terrorists who murdered his family.

On the latest episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? we're going BEYOND ATLANTIS with Eddie Romero's odd (sorta) undersea riff on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre featuring bug eyed Atlanteans, John Wayne's kid, the great Sid Haig and - of course - VIC DIAZ! Along the way we talk about colonialism, Vietnam, go deep on Haig's career and SO MUCH M…
 
Over 10 episodes of WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS we've seen Jackie Chan struggle for respectability and recognition in martial arts films. There have been high and low points, but we always knew his launch to stardom was coming.. and now here it is! On this episode we're looking at Yuen Woo-ping's SNAKE IN THE EAGLE'S SHADOW, the film that was Jackie's fir…
 
We love to ROCK on Eric Roberts is the (CENSORED) Man, so we were awfully excited to check out 2015's ROCK STORY which is all about a lawyer who dreams about becoming a rock star. It also features Three's Company's Joyce DeWitt, Gilbert Gottfried, murder, awful (awful) music, patriotism, and - of course - Eric Roberts as sleazy agent Andy Granite. …

We crack the Steve Buscemi universe WIDE OPEN on the latest episode of HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? This time we're talking about Tim Burton's 2003 fantasy-drama BIG FISH, which made a lot of people cry at the time (we've also cried at a lot of his films since then, for other reasons). We also talk about Steve Buscemi receiving the keys to New York …

On this episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? we're heading back to 1973 and the surprisingly Filipino-centric war film A TASTE OF HELL. Starring William Smith as an American soldier helping local villagers fight off the Japanese during World War II and John Gardwood as a soldier who gets horribly burned by a Japanese attack and haunts the near…
 
After the collapse of Jodorowsky's Dune project, the work that went into it went on to influence countless other future film projects, but it also provided the inspiration for another work: the comic series THE INCAL, which began in 1981 in the pages of Metal Hurlant (aka Heavy Metal) and continued the collaboration between Alejandro Jodorowsky and…
 
PRAISING KANE returns one of Carol Kane's finest performances, and a truly bizarre cult item. It's 1978's THE MAFU CAGE, and we guarantee you've never seen anything quite like it.

We made it! Ten(-ish) movies deep, Jackie Chan's career is floundering. Desperate for a hit, Lo Wei pairs him with James Tien and Bruce Leung for a western-inspired fantasy action epic featuring bizarre twists, excessive face-ripping, and music shamelessly stolen from Star Wars and.. heck.. let's make the whole thing 3D! MAGNIFICENT BODYGUARDS may …

Following the worldwide success of El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky connected with Michel Seydoux to pursue any project he wished. The answer?

On this episode of PRAISING KANE we're back in the silent era with Carol Kane, but this time in a broad Mel Brooks-ish comedy!

We're getting Wild In The Streets with Umberto Lenzi's gleefully exploitative 1974 crime thriller ALMOST HUMAN (aka THE DEATH DEALER, aka Milano odia: la polizia non può sparare).

What's Steve Buscemi up to in the 1991 star-studded gangster film bomb BILLY BATHGATE? Not much! Despite a big budget, an incredible cast (Dustin Hoffman, Nicole Kidman, Bruce Willis and.. uh.. Loren Dean!) and Tom Stoppard handling the script, it's a lifeless and predictable slog. On this episode of HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? we try to work out w…
