JFD137: Transformers: The Movie AUDIO COMMENTARY

 This week, to celebrate our 400th movie watched for the show, we sit down to do a full-length feature commentary for a movie of you guys voted on, the 1986 animated epic Transformers: The Movie.

In this intergalactic war movie based on the popular animated TV series and toy line of the same name, The Autobots (the good guys) must battle The Decepticons (the bad guys) plus a giant robotic planet thing called Unicron. Confused yet? Don't worry, so are we. This surprisingly grim kids' flick (hundreds of robots meet their demise) features the voice talents of Eric Idle, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Casey Kasem, Robert Stack, Orson Welles and Scatman Crothers, plus more cheesy 80's rock tunes than you can shake a stick at!

This is a full-length commentary meant to be listened to WHILE watching along with the film.

We will return next week with our standard format.

JFD's 400th Movie will be Transformers!

You dudes have spoken! And it turns out you're super into cartoon robots and alienating fans of Bill Cosby!

Next week, we'll be recording the review of our 400th movie, which will come in the form of a full audio commentary for "Transformers: The Movie!"

Here are the results, so you can fully acknowledge how little you care about Kathy Ireland.

JFD136: Crank, American Hunter, Bulletproof

This week we give thanks to bullets, punches and explosions as we look at three testosterone-filled action flicks.

First, hitman Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) has been poisoned by some Chinese shit and has to get revenge before his heart stops in 2006's "Crank," directed by the team of Neveldine & Taylor. The cast also features Dwight Yoakum, Amy Smart and Efrem Ramirez (Pedro from "Napoleon Dynamite").

Next, everyone is looking for the mico film and everyone gets punched in "American Hunter" from 1990. Directed by Arizal and starring Chris Mitchum, this Indonesian movie perfectly combines unintentionally wacky hijinx with bad ass action.

Finally, it's your worst nightmare, Butthorn. Mexican Muslim Communists steal an American tank and only Gary Busey can save the day in "1988's "Bulletproof." Also, Danny Trejo is there for a minute and Fred Olen Ray co-wrote it!

JFD135: Shivers, Videodrome, A History of Violence

Hold on to your guts, people, because this week Junk Food Dinner explores three films by one of the masters of violence and perversion, David Cronenberg.

 Up first, all Hell breaks loose when a parasite, which is a combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease, spreads through a secluded apartment complex, causing an outbreak of sexual chaos in one of Cronenberg's first films, Shivers (AKA They Came From Within) from 1975, starring Paul Hampton, Barbara Steele and Lynn Lowry.

Then, James Woods is Max Ren, a purveyor of sleazy cable programing, who stumbles upon a broadcast signal transmitting extreme torture, but as he explores the transmission further he soon discovers the true nature of the programing and the effect it's having on his mind in 1983's Videodrome, co-starring Deborah Harry and Sonja Smits.

And finally, Viggo Mortensen is a small town family man, who becomes a local celebrity when he kills two thugs in self defense at his diner. But when news spreads of heroic actions, it brings out people and secrets from his past in the 2005 crime thriller A History of Violence, co-starring Maria Bello, Ed Harris and William Hurt.

All this plus witty banter between friends, soundboard antics, news of molesting puppets that aren't Black Devil Doll from Hell, Junk (voice)Mails, DVD & Blu-ray releases, Nerd News and so much more!

Wrestling event to benefit Sandy victims

Hey, dudes. JFD listener Adam Gismondi asked us to pass this on. It's the announcement for a wrestling show to help raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims. It takes place on my birthday, so I'll also consider it a birthday present to me if you wanna go and help out. It also happens in Voorhees, NJ so I'll consider it a sweet "Friday the 13th" reference, too, somehow. Anyway, here's the details...

Hurricane Sandy devastated the shore community of Union Beach, NJ. My father, Raymond Smith, lost everything he owned and in an effort to help him rebuild his life we are running a fundraiser show. EVOLVE Wrestling is running the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ on December 8th at 4:00pm. We ask that you attend this show to not only support a good man, but also to support EVOLVE Wrestling – a local independent company that has offered to partner with me to help raise money for my Dad.

We ask that you buy your tickets to the event directly through me. The easiest way is to send $20 via paypal to EvolveHurricaneRelief@gmail.com and your tickets will be mailed or you can pay cash and pick up tickets in advance. We will have physical tickets in a few days. We ask that you spread the word and get as many people to come out as you can. RT this, share on Facebook, bring friends and family. We’ll have our own section of the arena reserved.

We also have a great raffle prize at the event. The grand prize will be 4 tickets to the WWE Tables, Ladders, Chairs PPV at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY on December 16th 2012!!! We are also including a copy of WWE ’13 The Video Game autographed by Paul Heyman and CM Punk, an autographed copy of the new CM Punk – Best in the World DVD, and various other surprises! These raffle tickets can also be purchased in advance or at the Evolve Wrestling show. The winner will be announced during the event!

Thank you EVOLVE wrestling for making this happen! Please also feel free to make a day out of it as EVOLVE is running a doubleheader with CZW’s annual Cage of Death the same night!

JFD134: The Core, Straw Dogs (2011), Grizzly II: The Predator


Some of you might remember a while back when we fired up the old Randomizer 2000, well for this round we upgraded the machine - to the 5000 model - but the movie quality remains the same!

Up first, a cast of A-list superstars (Aaron Eckhart, Hillary Swank, Richard Jenkins, Delroy Lindo, Stanley Tucci...uhhh, DJ Qualls, I guess...) pile into a ship 20 years in the making for a doomsday scenario so crazy, we have to put it in all caps here: THE CORE OF THE EARTH HAS STOPPED SPINNING AND NEEDS TO BE RESTARTED BY BOMBS! Also, whales are there to lend a helping hand. Forget everything you know about science (which we assume is a lot if you listen to this show) and feel free to throw up, we know we did - as we examine THE CORE from 2003

Next - Sam Peckinpah's whiskey soaked corpse spins in his grave as we discuss the 2011 remake of his classic 1971 film - STRAW DOGS. When a writer (James Marsden) from tinsel town posts up in the dirty south to get some writing done, he ends up alienating the locals (among them Alexander Skarsgard and James Woods) who harass him and his barefoot wife (Kate Bosworth) to no end. How much can one man bear before he takes matters into his own hands?

Speaking of bears we finally get to the pick of the litter, have a look at GRIZZLY II: THE PREDATOR: THE CONCERT from, ohhhhh around 1983. A wild bear is loose at a concert and some people want to kill it. Now while that may not sound like groundbreaking material let us stress that this is no ordinary "when animals attack" film. Available as only a work print, this unfinished feature contains almost no grizzly but makes up for it with unlicensed Michael Jackson songs, early appearances by Laura Dern, Charlie Sheen, and George Clooney and a whole lot of charm. 

All this plus witty banter between friends, soundboard antics, Star Wars hating, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, some of the worst puns Parker has ever come up with, Nerd News and so much more!
