JFD263: Mad Max - Fury Road, Supermensch, Bring me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman

Enjoy yourself this week! Kissing Contest's The Producer is in the JFD studios this week, because Sean's out living in a spaghetti western.

First, Max Rockatansky returns (now played by Tom Hardy) after 3 decades to race across the Wasteland in "Mad Max: Fury Road." Creator George Miller returns to turn his tiny Ozploitation story into a huge blockbuster event.

Then, a documentary about one of Hollywood's unsung heroes in 2013's "Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon." Mike Myers (the "Wayne's World" one) co-directs this talking head doc about Alice Cooper's manager.

Finally, a DJ gets tasked with an assassination in 2012's "Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman." It's Chilean grindhouse nostalgia meets video game obsession.

All this, plus junk mails, DVDs, Face to Face Chat, Anna Kendrick Chat, Riverboat Gamblers Chat, Doan's fanbase of children, LeBron pride, and so much more.

JFD262: Revenge of the Nerds, Takin' It All Off, Porky's



Sneak down to the basement, turn off all the lights and make sure your mom doesn't come down, because this week it's 80's Sex-Comedy Week on JFD!

Up first, we examine the movie that brought geek culture into the masses, Revenge of the Nerds from 1984. Directed by Jeff Kanew and starring a now classic line-up of nerds (Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards, Curtis Armstrong, etc), it went on to be a staple in video stores and on cable TV in the 80's and 90's.

Next, we take a look at film heavy on the sex, but light on the comedy with Takin' It All Off from 1987. It's the sequel to Takin' It Off from 1985 and stars Kitten Natividad, Candie Evans and Becky LeBeau as our always-naked protagonists trying to raise money to keep their *ahem* "stripper school" afloat. Also making an appearance is George 'Buck' Flower, who also co-wrote and produced the flick.

And finally, we tackle another hallmark of the 80's video store/cable TV scene with Porky's from 1982. Seems like everyone in the world (except Parker) has seen this seminal teen comedy about a group of high school kids (Dan Monahan, Mark Herrier, Tony Ganios, etc) in the 50's who are desperate to get laid and try to infiltrate the local strip club/brothel; Porky's. This movie was directed by Bob Clark, the same guy who brought us Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things, Black Christmas and of course, A Christmas Story.  

All this plus witty banter between friends, credit card for t-shirt scams, The Memphis Maniac, homeless people masturbating in the library, Nerd News and This Week in DVD/Blu-rays, panty raid confessions, boob talk, butt talk, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement and a whole lot more!

JFD261: Murphy's Law, Judex, Intent to Kill

Does the terrible reign of Mark Freado, founding father of Kissing Contest, no know bounds? Only this week's episode of JFD can tell, as he joins Parker and Sean this week to chat about cool names, girls on exercise bikes, and three cult-tacular movies. (Kevin must be in Boston or something)

Up first, we chain ourselves to Charles Bronson and Kathleen Wilhoite while we run from those coppers, while watching the 1986 Canon flick Murphy's Law! This unlikely pairing of actors explore the important subjects of dope farms and mayonaise sandwiches, and we're there to take in all the action. It's got the Bradbury Building!

Next! Old man Freado brings us on a quite a rollicking caper with 1963's Judex! Based on an earlier film serial, this stylized look at man's greed comes from French director Georges Franju (Eyes Without a Face), and has some really sick-ass bird-face masks! On top of that, the lead actor spent time in his life as a magician, which is something.

Speaking of Gawthornes, there's nothing inadvertent about our aim to discuss Intent to Kill. Traci Lords and Yaphet Kotto star in this low-budget sleazy LA crime flick, and almost manage to avoid looking like they were reading their lines on screen for the first time. But hey, sweet car crashes abound.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Grains of Mayonnaise, Characters explaining the titles, The biggest hands Parker has ever seen on a human, People who like capers, Keeping that Saw Theme Going, Yaphet Kotto's Subtle Toupee, Nerd News and This Week in DVD, awkward follow-ups, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD258: Massacre Mafia Style, Gone with the Pope, The Beaver Trilogy



Parker’s taking his own mysterious desert vacation this week, and as a result we’re joined with another famous Daytonite, Ryan from the Illumi-Nati Podcast! It’s a wild ride as we discuss Duke Mitchell’s entire filmography (two flicks!), and an entire Beaver Trilogy (one flick!). Uncover the secrets of Italian American lounge singers and small-town talent shows together with us!

Up first, we delve into our accidental theme show with Duke Mitchell’s exploitation debut, Massacre Mafia Style (aka The Executioner, aka Like Father Like Son) from 1978! The son of a Sicilian mafia boss moves to Hollywood to stake his own claim to the family name. Duke Mitchell wrote, directed, stars, and provides the music for this sleazy grind house Godfather rip-off, which features some of the craziest exploding caskets you’ll ever find at any funeral.

Next! The Duke Mitchell insanity continues with Gone with the Pope from 2010! Previously unreleased and unfinished, Grindhouse Releasing went the extra mile to complete and restore this film decades later, and the result is as nuts as Duke’s first (and only other) movie. In this follow up, Duke finds himself involved in a plot to kidnap the Pope and demand a one dollar ransom from all the Christians in the world. And that ending!

Finally, we head up to the mountains and stop in a little town with some little secrets, with 2000’s The Beaver Trilogy. Comprised of three individual segments filmed over the course of several years, all covering the same subject, and featuring the likes of Crispin Glover and Sean Penn (as well as the music of Olivia Newton John), this movie is the weirdo 80s low-fi Rashomon/Hedwig mash-up you’ve always been waiting for! It’s weird in all the right ways.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Robotic Overtones, Hot Dog Podcasting, A Dixie Dust-Up, The Sweetest Sheets and the Beach Boys, Dishwash Talk, French Ticklers, Nerd News and This Week in DVD, The Mysterious Stuart, Confusing Release Dates, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD257: America's Deadliest Home Video, Aswang, North Dixie Drive

Junkies! Rejoice, for episode 257 is upon us! We are joined by Josh from Lunchmeat Magazine this week.

First, we take a look at a very early entry in the Found Footage/POV genre: "America's Deadliest Home Video" from 1993. This SOV flick stars Danny Bonaduce and Melora Walters ("Boogie Nights"). It's also directed by the dude who did "Wild Things 2," so that's pretty weird.

Next, we finally get around to a movie that's been requested by listeners for years: "Aswang" from 1994. A pregnant woman deals with weird Phillipino vampire monsters while in rural Wisconsin... for some reason. The movie turns out to be ... GROOVY.

Finally, we watch a documentary about Parker's hometown of Dayton, Ohio called "North Dixie Drive." The film looks at a part of town hit by a failing economy and an obsolete automobile industry that has since fallen into disrepair. And the eccentric folks who live there.

All this, plus Nerd News, DVDs, Mad Max Chat, Mark from Oakland's strongest "It's Okay" yet, Sweetman reflecting on Sweetman, Voicemails, skypiness, hot dogs, JFD Grandpa, a weird intro and so much more!

JFD256: Sisters, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out


JFD is back and still riding high off our 5-year anniversary we decide to take it up a notch by inviting none other than Cory from the world famous Illogical Contraption radio show to come on and party with us! And party we shall, because this episode is no regular-ass episode, oh no. Tonight we explore some early films from one of the masters of suspense Mr. Brian De Palma!

Up first, Margot Kidder is a French-Canadian living in New York. When she appears on a hidden camera game show with Lisle Wilson, the two go out on a date. But she's carrying a dark secret involving her twin sister which leads to murder. But when her neighbor across the street (Jennifer Salt) witnesses the murder, the race is on to figure out just what the hell is going on in Sisters from 1973.

Then, Angie Dickinson is a frustrated MILF living with her husband and son. But after a random hook-up at an art museum, she is murdered in an elevator by a mysterious "woman". It's then up to her shrink (Michael Caine), her son (Keith Gordon), a cop (Dennis Franz) and a hooker (Nancy Allen) to figure out just what the hell is going on in Dressed to Kill from 1980.

And finally, John Travolta is a sound engineer for crummy b-movies (you know, like the ones we cover on this podcast), but when he's out one night recording sound effects, he witnesses a car drive off the road and into a stream. After saving the girl inside (Nancy Allen) he finds out that the guy driving the car was a potential presidential candidate and it's up to him, Nancy Allen and Dennis Franz to figure out just what the hell is going on in Blow Out from 1981.

All this plus witty banter between friends, the return of Grandpa, penis enhancement chat, cute little butts, Nerd News and Blu-rays/DVDs, absolute confidentiality, Hithcock comparisons galore, the Memphis Maniac, RoboTech pajamas, continued lack of police involvement and a whole lot more!
