JFD74: Food of the Gods, Lady Terminator, Match Point
The wait is over, and Junk Food Dinner Episode #74 is here. This week we welcome, our announcer and bonafide radio personality, Juliet Fromholt to the show as we discuss giant varmints, Indonesian mysticism, and the debate of fate versus chance!
First up, Marjoe Gortner and his friends are trapped on an island where strange things are brewing- RIGHT OUT OF THE GROUND. Naturally, the locals have been feeding it to wildlife and, brother, it's become wilder than ever! Bert I. Gordon (aka Mr. Big) tackles the work of H. G. Wells in the PG rated rat massacre from 1976 - Food of the Gods!
Next, curses from a hundred years ago come calling, or more accurately, come walking naked out of the ocean. Can Erica and her expertly coiffed police pals put a stop to a seemingly invincible killing machine before she termina- uh, destroys them? It's a whirlwind of violence, bad hair, and misplaced eels as we travel around the world to Indonesia and check out the 1989 foreign market knock off - Lady Terminator.
Finally, anyone for tennis? But seriously, and we mean seriously, we're talking Woody Allen's Match Point from 2005. Beautiful people (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Scarlett Johannson) do terrible things to each other while trying to suss out whether luck or fate has more to do with the way things turn out. But they'll soon discover that love doesn't always serve all.
All this plus a sparkling new guest host, occasional and unintentional robot voice, Junk Mail, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-Ray Releases, and much more!
