JFD139: 1990: The Bronx Warriors, A Boy and His Dog, Miracle Mile
It's been a weird week around the JFD offices. Kevin is out on the open road and, sadly (kind of), Mark was cut down in the prime of his life. But brave Parker carried on and enlisted the help of longtime friend of the show Sean Byron to fill in for Kevin and in a Hail Mary play, got the one and only Jason Frisbie (of Pool Party Radio) to fill in for dear, departed Mark. Just think of this as an episode of Junk Pool Food Party Dinner or something. No matter how you look at it, though, it's a whale of a show.
Up first, it's 1990 and the authorities have all but given up on the Bronx, letting chaos run the streets. Gangs are everywhere, some of them on roller skates. When young girl and heir to the Manhattan Corp. wanders into the wrong side of town, she must figure out how to navigate the wasteland of the big apple and get out alive. Think of it as The Warriors meets Escape from New York filtered in a way that only the Italians could do it as we take a look at 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS from 1982.
Next up a telepathic dog and his human companion must beat feet across a desolate wasteland in search of all the necessities - food, shelter, and (of course) some of that sweet sweet loving that you can only get after the world ends. It's LQ Jones' (who we recently talked about in our review of Bulletproof) post-apocalyptic epic - A BOY AND HIS DOG.
And lastly, a boy-meets-girl story goes awry after a phone call foretelling doomsday interrupts a pretty normal (but really really long) first date. Was the call real? Are these truly humanities final moments? Was this killer Tangerine Dream soundtrack released on vinyl? All these questions and more while we wax poetic on the bleak MIRACLE MILE.
All this plus witty banter between friends, comma jokes, soundboard antics, boogie down jams, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, little to no Skype issues, Face To Face chat, Nerd News and so much more!
