JFD243: Female Trouble, Space Station 76, The Monster's Christmas

Merry Christmas, from your pals at Junk Food Dinner! This week, we get into the holiday spirit with three films loosely centered around the season.

Up first, Divine plays Dawn Davenport, a high school delinquent who gets so upset that she doesn't get a pair of cha cha heels for Christmas that she runs away from home, gets knocked up, shacks up with a hair dresser and becomes the subject of crime-based photography in John Waters' campy classic Female Trouble from 1974.

Then, Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Marisa Coughlan and Jerry O'Connell are crew members are crew members on a futuristic, yet retro space station. They struggle with relationships, loneliness and celebrate Christmas in Jack Plotnick's stylish space drama/comedy Space Station 76 from 2014.

Finally, we travel to New Zealand, where a little girl befriends monsters and battles a witch in order to get all the monsters' voices back in the insanely surreal 1981 made-for-tv holiday special The Monster's Christmas.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, incorrect predictions about the future of The Interview, our Junky DVD picks for the week, Aerosmith jokes, anticipation of Clayton Miller DVDs, kangaroos with boxing gloves and so much more!

JFD242: Sugar Cookies, Hollywood Boulevard, The Living End


Ho, Ho, Hot Mama! Mary Xmas, everyone! It's the most wonderful time of the year, where your three Junk Food Dinner hosts gather around the fireplace, break out the eggnog, and reflect fondly on three films starring JFD Hall of Famer, Mary Woronov. It's our first ever Mary Xmas theme show!

First up, we take a bite out of 1973's Sugar Cookies! This sleazy softcore thriller was written by a pre-Troma Lloyd Kaufman, was produced by Oliver Stone, and has a lot of boobs in it!

Next, we take a stroll down 1976's Hollywood Boulevard! Fresh out of the Roger Corman school of hard knocks, a very young Joe Dante teams up with a similarly youthful Allan Arkush to make an ultra-low-budget send-up of ultra-low-budget filmmaking! Woronov, Bartel, Miller and all your favorite from Corman's gang make appearances.

Lastly, we hit the road with the cast of 1992's The Living End! The directorial debut of Gregg Arakki, this hard-edged entry in New Queer Cinema doesn't feature a whole lot of Woronov, but it does feature Mike's Hockey Burger.

All this plus friendly banter between wits, Nerd News, The Lynn Lowry / Dark Crystal Connection, our Junky DVD picks for the week, weekly Kevin Smith updates, shiftless artist layabout types, Listener Junk Mail, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

JFD241: Lionheart, Paprika, The Guest


It's dream machines, dreamboats and dream fights tonight, Junkies!

First, Jean Claude Van Damme quits the French Foreign Legion when he hears his brother has been murdered. This leads to a bizarre underground fighting tournament and some very soggy leotards in "Lionheart" from 1990. The movie was written and directed by frequent JCVD collaborator Sheldon Lettich ("Double Impact," "Bloodsport").

Next, Satoshi Kon ("Perfect Blue") directs the beautiful and trippy 2006 anime "Paprika," about a scientific machine that enables psychologists to enter their patients' dreams. the film is often cited as being the unoficial source material for "Inception."

Finally, a young soldier visits the family of his dead comrade in Adam Wingard's "The Guest," from 2014. Is this soldier who he says he is? The family is suspicious. You won't be, though, because (BEWARE!) we spoil the whole damn thing!

All this, Nerd News, DVDs, Sweet Mans and 74 other things!

JFD240: Ice Cream Man (full length commentary)


Can you believe we have reviewed 700 goddamn movies on Junk Food Dinner?! We can't, but apparently we have. So, as is our tradition with every 100th movie watched, we are doing a full-length audio commentary for a movie you, the JFD listening audience, voted on; Ice Cream Man from 1995 starring Clint Howard (Evilspeak) and directed by Paul Norman (Edward Penishands, Sperm Bitches).

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 Ice Cream Man. If you try to listen to this episode and you are not watching Ice Cream Man along with us, a lot of this will not make any sense.

JFD239: Centipede Horror, Going Overboard, Dragon Ball: Fight Son Goku, Win Son Goku


We knew the day would come where we would have to face off with the vaunted Randomizer 5000 once again, we just didn't expect it would be so soon. Yet, that day is here. Brace yourself, Junk Food Junkies - the Randomizer's wrath has no reprieve!

First up, we burrow into Sean's own personal insectoid nightmares with the ghoulish and ghastly Centipede Horror (aka Wu Gong Zhou) from 1982! This early CAT-III flick is one of the crazier Hong Kong bugsploitation movies, as that's really saying something. Maybe don't eat a heavy meal before this one, guys.

Next, things go from bad to worse with everyone's favorite funnyman, Adam Sandler, in 1989's Going Overboard! A pre-SNL/pre-fame/pre-funny Sandler somehow landed the lead role in this boat-bound "comedy", including surprising (until you read this) cameos from Billy Zane and Milton Berle! Cats will be slapped.

Lastly, we travel to a subtitle-free zone in South Korea for 1990's Dragon Ball: Fight Son Goku, Win Son Goku, an unofficial Korean live-action remake of the original Dragon Ball series. There's a whole lot of awkward touching, and then Gamera shows up to bite some dude's dick. Is this really a kids movie?

All this plus friendly banter between wits, the live results of our JFD 700th Movie Commentary poll, Kevin's Wild and Woolly Video Voyages, Parker's Adventures Throughout the Lucha Underground, Sean's Traumatic Insectoid History, a traffic jam of movie releases, Nerd News, our Junky DVD picks for the week, the latest Vine critiques, Double Sheens, listener calls and Junk Mails, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

JFD238: Horns, Call Girl of Cthulu, WolfCop

Hey, Junkies! This week, we continue checking out the delights of 2014 cinema with three more new movies.

First up, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is a young man who's dealing with the fact that everyone in town thinks he killed his girlfriend in "Horns." Things get way worse, or maybe better, when he begins to get Satan-like in appearance. The flick is directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Piranha 3D) and based on a book by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son).

Next, the team that brought us The WNUF Halloween Special return with their Kickstarter-funded "Call Girl of Cthulu." A young nerd and his prostitute love interest run afoul of a cult that worships ancient alien gods and need the Necronomicon to summon them. Or something. Get ready for Deep Ones and things that are Unamable.

Finally, a drunk cop is turned into a werewolf as a part of a nefarious plan. "Wolf Cop" is directed by Lowell Dean and is a throw-back to a time when cops were sometimes monsters. Literally, we mean. Not the kind of monsters they are now.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Parker's return, low milk, Junk Mail, GWAR stories, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-ray releases, a bad Austin Powers voice, The Brain redux and so much more.

JFD237: Blue Ruin, Guardians of the Galaxy, Autómata

Welp, Halloween season's over, butthorns, and as 2014 starts winding down JFD calls upon foundingmember Mark Freado Jr to join us to examine some flicks from the past year. 

Up first, up-and-coming direct Jeremy Saulnier weaves a tale about a Virginia man, Dwight (Macon Blair), who has become a vagrant after the murder of his parents. But when he gets the news that the man responsible for their deaths is released from prison, Dwight goes into full revenge mode in Blue Ruin.

Then, it's not often that JFD tackles one of the biggest films of the year, but in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, it was too good to be ignored. Director James Gunn (Slither, Super) brings a culty vibe to this comic book tale about a space loser (Chris Pratt) and his gang of misfits who are trying to transport a valuable orb across the cosmos.

Finally, Spanish director Gabe Ibáñez mixes a bit of Blade Runner and a dash of District 9, to create a futuristic tale where where the human population has dwindled and relies on robots to do the work once done by humans. But when Antonio Banderas discovers that the robots may be self-aware, he goes on a quest to protect mankind in Autómata.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Halloween regrets, low milk, Junk Mail, video mix tapes, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-ray releases, touching stories, Freado's ever-present Skype noise, Buzz from Home Alone, condoms stretched over pineapples and so much more.

JFD236: Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, Halloween: Resurrection, Halloween (2007)


Well, it’s finally happened, Junk Food Junkies! Our final week of Schlocktober is an extra historic episode this week as all three of your JFD hosts are recording without the benefit of Internet anonymity! It’s an in-person JFD episode, recorded live from a garage in East LA (lock the gates!) with none other than the Razor-man himself, Jason “Cumulus” Frisbie of Pool Purdy Radio fame, (un)fresh from the 9th Annual Horrorthon at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica! Lack of sleep and a complete non-lack of the heaviest doobies collide with Listener Beers and we get so turnt while reviewing these Halloween flicks. It’s the spoopiest, creepiest episode of JFD yet!

First up, we’re drowning in slasher cliches in Steve Miner’s soggy sequel, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later from 1998! Michael Myers is back, you say? Jamie Lee Curtis returns and is joined by newcomers, Michelle Williams, Josh Hartnett, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and LL Cool J. Look out for a misplaced tribute to Psycho with Janet Leigh!

Next, the Halloween series is revived yet again with Halloween: Resurrection from 2002, directed by Rick Rosenthal! You’ll never believe it, but Michael Myers is back (despite that pesky decapitation). Jamie Lee Curtis appears alongside Tyra Banks and Busta Rhymes in this more experimental, Information Superhighway Themed ode to cyberspace slasherdom. Also, humans are the real aliens (spoiler).

Finally, we’ve done it. We’ve watched Robert Zombie’s remake, Halloween from 2007. Set in an indistinct time period and chock full of Zombie’s naked wife, this song features multiple sequences with Don’t Fear the Reaper on the soundtrack. Malcom McDowell plays a hippie who just wants to meet a kid (aka Dr. Loomis), and the rest of the cast is populated by an unbelievable roster of cult character actors, including Brad Dourif, William Forsythe, Richard Lynch, Udo Kier, Clint Howard, Danny Trejo, Bill Moseley, Dee Wallace, Ken Foree, Sybil Danning, Sid Haig, Courtney Gains, Kazu Nagahama and more!

All this plus the wittiest real-time banter between friends, no Skype weirdness whatsoever, tons of off-mic shenanigans, Oatmeal-Fu, burps, Staying Up All Night Doing That Homework, chilling in H-towns, Pointy-Ass Klaus Kinski, Super Sentais, french grandpas, monster deans, The Return of the Hubba Bubba, sneezes, boogers and so much more!

Thanks again to Gene Siskel’s BaldingHead for the brewskis!
