Let's all share in being stoked for The Avengers, eh?

Check it out! here's a tiny, tiny teaser for next year's "The Avengers." You can check out slightly more of this teaser (like a shot of Robin from "How I Met Your Mother" with a gun) after the credits of "Capt. America," which is a really good movie.

Oh, also, the last 30 seconds or so of the aforementioned "Capt. America" is contained in this clip, so if you're opposed to being spoiled on a 50 year old comic book plot, look away. Look away.

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!

Something

Remember how "The Thing" is being remade? Here's the trailer:

<a href='http://movies.msn.com/movies/movie-trailers/#/video/f749b83d-e1d0-4983-a918-a9c3914b03c0' target='_new' title='&#39;The Thing&#39; Movie Trailer' >Video: &#39;The Thing&#39; Movie Trailer</a>

I hope they don't replace Kurt Russell with a cute girl in the "Escape from New York" remake. Or maybe I do hope they do that...

I'll have to ponder this.

Junk Food Dinner Podcast: Episode #67

Rejoice Junk Food Junkies, the latest episode of everybody's favorite cult movie podcast is finally upon us!

This week we take a look at the absurdist independent film Rubber from 2010 directed by Quentin Dupieux about a psychokinetic, murderous tire rollin' (literally) through the California desert.

Then we examine the grittiest Marvel Comic movie to date, when we get an eye full of Punisher: War Zone from 2008 starring Ray Stevenson, Dominic West and Wayne Knight.

And finally, we class things up a bit with the arty NC-17 revenge drama The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover starring Helen Mirren, Michael Gambon and Tim Roth.

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

Mystery Thai Horror/Fantasy Posters

Search eBay for the Thai poster of your favorite 70's/80's/90's sci-fi/horror/fantasy movie and prepare to have your brain handed to you by some of the most amazing hand-painted rainbow-colored movie poster fantasy collage artwork you have ever seen!! I'll probably post some of my favorite recent finds of Thai posters for more well known international films another day, but for now here are a few mystery posters I found for unidentified Asian horror/fantasy films. The first one almost looks like a Thai poster for Demon Wind (1990)? And check out the mystery Dracula, Frankenstein and Werewolf posters. Can anyone read Thai?

Junk Food Dinner & Spectacle Theater present: Samurai Cop

When the Yakuza infiltrate the LAPD, it's up to "samurai" Joe Marshall (Matt Hannon) and his wisecracking partner, Frank, to take them down...no matter the cost! But first they'll have to deal with the deadly Katana gang (Gerald Okamura, Robert Z'dar), a bevy of babes (Krista Lane), the worlds angriest police chief, and a whole host of other troubles. Time is running out!

Amir Shervan, who (allegedly) owned every theater in Iran, wrote and directed this film- the second in an apparent trilogy, along with HOLLYWOOD COP (1987) and KILLING AMERICAN STYLE (1991).

Once lost and now notorious, SAMURAI COP packs a punch that few can match, let alone duplicate. "Excessive" barely begins to describe every aspect of this film. Shervan pulls from all fronts of popular American cinema (action, martial arts, gore, buddy cops, beach cops, basic cable softcore, and on and on) to create a perfect combo and then serves it up on a silver platter. You'll be shaking your head as you pick your jaw up off the floor.

Join Junk Food Dinner & Spectacle Theater as we proudly present SAMURAI COP (courtesy of Media Blasters, Inc.) on Friday July 15th at Midnight.

I WILL BRING YOU HIS HEAD AND PLACE IT ON YOUR PIANO.

Also, be sure to check out Episode #13 of Junk Food Dinner for our discussion of SAMURAI COP with guest host Kevin Merryman of Cultural Atrocities!

Junk Food Dinner 66



Junk Food Dinner bowls a strike this week as we take a look at three (3) films suggested by listeners.

First up, we take a look at 1982's "Megaforce," the story of Ace Hunter (Barry Bostwick) and his quest to defeat evil and ride flying motorcycles in front of green screens while wearing a headband.

Then our bodies get taken over by a murdered gangster while we watch "Retribution" from 1987. This horror flick is full of gore, glowing green eyes and the best midget cameo we've seen since last week.

Finally we watch Ryan Nicholson's '80s slasher homage, "Gutterballs," 2008's most notable bowling/rape fusion.

Project Parlor and Junk Food Dinner present: Round 10! (7/5/11)

It's like we can touch you! The landmark 10th round necessitates something special, wouldn't you agree? We thought so. That's why we're proud to announce that this week will be in eye popping (gouging?) 3D! We'll provide glasses, you guys bring your sense of wonder and awe.

The Mask (1961, Canada) [AKA: Face of Fire AKA: Eyes of Hell]

An archaeologist is tormented after finding a mask that produces nightmarish visions and leaves him wondering if he's a murderer. Before his suicide, he mails the cursed mask to his psychiatrist. Is he doomed to suffer the same fate? Is the mask driving him to kill?

Billed as the only 3D film to come out of Canada (and allegedly their first horror film), The Mask is one wild ride with a pretty decent story to boot. A booming voice commands that viewers "PUT THE MASK ON NOW!" (as a cue to put on your 3D glasses!) in order to fully participate in the bugged out 60's visuals and guitar freakouts! The management is not responsible for nervous breakdowns!



Robot Monster (1953, USA) [AKA: Monsters from the Moon]

Ro-Man has destroyed every human on Earth save but a ragtag team of 6 survivors! The Great One will not tolerate failure in this mission, but Ro-Man's got other problems- LOVE. Can the survivors outwit Ro-Man and avoid a painful demise in this harsh wasteland they once called a home? Spoiler: Yes.

As we learned with "Teenagers from Outer Space," making a sci-fi movie on a shoestring budget (and then using that same shoestring as a prop in the movie) can really take it's toll. This is no exception, as you'll see. Reportedly (or maybe "according to legend" sounds better) this film was shot in 4 days and entirely outside! What was the most expensive part of making this movie? Bubble Machine rental? Not getting the deposit back on the gorilla costume you rented? Acting lessons? (No.) Training lizards to dress up like dinosaurs and fight?

Upon it's release, director Phil Tucker attempted suicide after the unforgiving critics panned this film across the board. It's a good thing he didn't succeed or he never would have been able to continue making films like Tijuana After Midnite, Baghdad After Midnite, or The Cape Canaveral Monsters.




Join us for this, as it's sure to be a party. Also, be sure to check out Spectacle Theater all August for 3D programming every Monday all month! Features, shorts, oddities, and more from the 50's to the 80's (and beyond!) Check the Spectacle website for a full list. See you Tuesday! TIP YOUR BARTENDERS!

Trailer Trash

In this new feature on the site, I'll be periodically posting various oddballs trailers from the far reaches of cinema obscurity. So, without any further ado, let's check out some "coming attractions"!

Stunt Rock (1978):

This mind-melting slab of Australian lunacy pairs footage of wild stuntman Grant Page with performances by goofy 70's rockers/magicians Sorcery! Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith of Turkey Shoot, Dead End Drive-in and Leprechaun 4: In Space fame.



Frankenstein General Hospital (1988):

Oh boy, this looks ridiculous. A forgotten straight-to-video comedy featuring a respectable cast of recognizable character actors including lovable lug Irwin Keyes, Mark Blankfield, Leslie Jordan and even Ben Stein. There's a part of me that wants to check this out, while another part of me screams "What the fuck is wrong with you?!".



Night of the Dribbler (1990):

Jesus Christ, where did this come from?! An absurd high school slasher flick/goofball comedy about a basketball team that's stalked by a killer with a basketball for a head. And that "rap" song in the trailer... what the fuck were they thinking?!



Alright, that's all for now. Look for future installments of Trailer Trash in the upcoming days.

If you have any suggestions for a ridiculous, cool, absurd, perplexing or just generally Junk Food-y trailers, send 'em my way.
