Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode 68


Sound the alarm, JFD68 is here! This week, we're honored once again to be graced with the presence of none other than professional podcaster Mike Dikk from Kissing Contest.

We kick things off by asking how far can too far go as we debate the merits of the contraversial 2010...uh...Serbian film...A Serbian Film.

Round 2! Rutger Hauer is takin' it to the streets and dishing out boxcar justice while going toe to toe with crime bosses, child molesters, angry mobs, and armored thugs as he teams up with a hooker with a heart of gold in the 2011 film Hobo with a Shotgun.

Finally, we take a look at the well-dressed 1959 sci-fi, jazzterpiece (not a real word) 4D Man from director Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr. (The Blob, Dinosaurs!).

Also, we have Nerds News, this week's DVD and Blu-Ray releases and much more!

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the Hey Dude! Season 1 DVD release. I downloaded the shitty quality iTunes versions a long time ago, but I'm definitely snagging the DVD as well. And no need to feel creepy for perving on Brad. She was fine as hell and had DAT ASS, plus she was like 23 when the show started. Really, 11 year-old me watching Brad in those tight jeans and riding pants... I think that's when I realized I was an ass man/boy. Also, the theme song was one of the very first bits of music I learned to play on guitar, and it started my never-ending love affair with hammer-ons.

    Hopefully the other seasons get released, and the infinitely more awesome Salute Your Shorts will get the DVD treatment as well. The world needs more Donkeylips.

    Oh yeah, the movies. Like Kevin said, I felt like a creep watching A Serbian Film. I actually watched it with my girlfriend (until she couldn't take it anymore and left the room) and just kept thinking "I hope I don't get a boner. I can't explain away a boner with this shit." Not that I normally get rods from that kinda stuff... but I don't normally see that kinda stuff, so I wouldn't know! Sometimes you can't control the wood! Luckily I didn't get close to turned on at any point during the movie, so there's that. The movie had good production values and a slick look (there is plenty of talent evident) but the movie itself didn't work for me. Probably because it alternated being very effective at creeping me out and making me uncomfortable, to making me roll my eyes at the over-the-top absurdity. If they had gone with one or the other I think it would have been a better film.

    Didn't really like Hobo with a Shotgun either, but I may need to watch it again. On paper, it should be my favorite movie ever.

  2. I haven't seen HWAS, but Hauer is the man and one of my all-time favs. His autobiography, ALL THOSE MOMENTS, is a fascinating and fun read. I'm looking forward to Hauer playing painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder in THE MILL & THE CROSS.

    Also, I love those homegrown Harris/Yeaworth films, but 4D MAN isn't one of there best, even though the basic metaphysical concept should have been really cool. And not that it matters, but it's actually Dinosau-RUS!. I made the same mistake myself and kept getting it mixed up with an 80's Will Vinton claymation video with Fred Savage. Also, you guys gotta check out THE BLOB sequel, BEWARE! THE BLOB (1972), if you haven't already. Harris and Yeaworth had nothing to do with it, but it is it's own little weird and warped experimental 70's sci-fi/horror/fantasy oddity. It was on Netflix Instant Watch the last time I checked, but I liked it so much after watching it there that I bought the DVD. Plus, I do love films with exclamation points in the title.

  3. I just realized that I totally got 4D MAN confused with THE PROJECTED MAN (1966), so I haven't seen 4D MAN yet and my lackluster comments above were aimed at THE PROJECTED MAN instead.
