JFD89: Elves, Santa with Muscles, Rare Exports


Do you hear what I hear? It's a band new Junk Food Dinner Holiday Spectacular! This year we invite you to snuggle up by the fire place and join us as we munch on three especially nutty fruitcakes of cinema.

Up first, a pretty young mall employee with a severely damaged home life is befriended by a jolly, bearded man (with smoke encircling his head like a wreath) and together they must stop the Nazis from using evil elves and a magic crystal to create a master race in the deeply dark and disturbing ELVES from 1989.

Next, "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan takes on Ed Begley Jr. and a host of character actors (Garrett Morris, Mila Kunis, Don Stark, Clint Howard, and more!) as they try and take over an orphanage! On Christmas! Can you believe the nerve? More magic crystals and groans abound as we take on 1996's SANTA WITH MUSCLES! If you missed it the two weeks it was in theaters in the mid-90's, now's your chance to get the scoop.

Finally, we travel around the world to the icy tundra of Finland to take a look at a newer entry in the cannon of Holiday cult film. RARE EXPORTS from last year, a feature length film spawned from a series of viral short films, takes a look at the darker side of Santa mythology. A boy and his father feel the consequences of the archaeological dig when they uncover an ancient burial mound. Could the stranger found in their wolf trap have something to do with the rash of disappearances of the local children?

All this plus an appearance by Virtual Mark, witty banter between friends, rock 'n roll music, glitchy Skype noise, a flaming Yule log, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-ray releases, and so much more!

JFD88: Killing Spree, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, The American Astronaut

Boy, oh, boy do we have a killer episode of Junk Food Dinner for you! We've got killer cuckold husbands, killer college kids and killer atomizing ray guns! What more could you ask for?!

Up first, a man with a crazy blond beard and a wild-eyed stare (the incomparable Asbestos Felt) suspects his wife (Courtney Lercara) is being unfaithful after reading her salacious diary entries and unleashes a reign of terror on those who would threaten his marriage in the low-budget 1987 gore fest, Killing Spree, directed by Tim Ritter of Truth or Dare: A Critical Madness fame.

Then, two lovable hillbillies (Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk) head out to their new vacation home, a rustic cabin in the woods, for some quality bro time. But when a group of spoiled college kids (including the lovely Katrina Bowden and the hilariously sinister Jesse Moss) mistake their backwoods ways for evil intent, it kicks off a series of misunderstandings and spark a chain of events that leaves a high body (and laugh) count in the 2010 horror/comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil.

And finally, music, absurd comedy and beautiful black and white cinematography collide in a story about an intergalactic trader (Cory McAbee, who also wrote, directed and scored the film) who's on a mission to deliver The Boy Who Actually Saw a Woman's Breast to Venus, all while trying to avoid being turned to dust by the ray-gun of the evil Professor Hess (Rocco Sisto) in The American Astronaut from 2001.

All this plus witty banter between friends, rock 'n roll music, glitchy Skype noise, Nerd News, DVD & Blu-ray releases, and so much more!

Hollywood has an untold story for us: Spider-Man.


So, there's a new "Amazing Spider-Man" poster out that demands that we acknowledge that they will be telling us the "Untold Story."

I'm willing to bet this story had been told once or twice, maybe even three times before by Sam Raimi. Maybe the story was even told a couple times before that in cartoon form. People may have even heard the story in one of the many Spider-Man video games that have been released. And if people perhaps missed the story of Spider-Man there, maybe they caught in one of the comics that have been coming out monthly for about half a century.

The poster looks cool, though.

JFD87: Things, Creature, The Thing


JFD offers you a vague welcome as we talk about three movies with very nondescript titles.

First up, we talk about the often-sought after so-bad-it's-good-but mostly bad "Things" from 1989. Inanimate monsters abound, featuring porn legend Amber Lynn as a news reporter.

Then, we take a look at the lowest grossing wide-release film of all time: 2011's "Creature." A rubber suit alligator man-monster stalks some kids in the bayou. Sid Haig co-stars.

Finally, we discuss the 2011 prequel (read: remake) of "The Thing." Mary Elizabeth Winstead leads a bunch of Norwegian scientists again an extraterrestrial monster that can take the form of its prey.

Note: We had some technical difficulties this week. Sorry if the audio gets a little wonky here and there.

Cabin in the Woods, oh yeah.

The Joss Whedon-scripted, Chris Hemsworth-starring horror flick "Cabin in the Woods" has been in release limbo for a while now. But, the success of "Thor" (Hemsworth is Thor) and the fact that Joss is directing the most ambitious summer blockbuster ever ("The Avengers") has (probably) led to "Cabin" being released this spring. As such, there's a trailer. If you're interested in trailers, have a look. But, be warned. James Gunn (director of "Slither" and "Super") said that this trailer gives away too much and should probably only be watched if you're undecided about whether you should be excited about this or not.

I'm already excited because of Joss, so I won't be watching this trailer. I'm sick of seeing every kill and every plot twist in every trailer these days and I certainly don't want to get spoiled on what has been called "'Evil Dead' meets 'House of Leaves.'"

Tim & Eric have movie. Movie has trailer.

Here's the NSFW trailer for the Tim & Eric movie. Some of you may be into that. I've seen a bunch of Tim & Eric episodes and I pretty much think the "Sit on You" song is the only funny thing they've ever done. But, I think the "Sit on You" thing is so goddamn funny that it justifies me watching more episodes in hopes that something will be that funny again. And it'll probably lead me to watch this movie in hopes that something is that funny in it.

In reality, though, I'll probably shoot myself in the face somewhere around the 25 minute mark.
