JFD147: Primer, Safety Not Guaranteed, Planet of the Apes
Junk Food Dinner keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin' into the future. Or the past. Or you know, wherever. That's right, Junkies, it's time travel week in our Sci-Fi-ebruary celebration! Put your goggle on and let's go!
Up first, a marvel of science and fiction to be sure. Shane Carruth directs and stars in the 2004 low-budget high-concept head-scratcher - PRIMER. Two friends working on a weekend project in the garage fall ass backwards into a world of ethical troubles and a laundry list of paradoxes when they accidentally invent time travel. Will they figure out the best (if any) way to you use their new found invention? Spoiler: Yes, kind of. But also kind of not. Join us in our confusion!
Next, a host of slackers from a big fancy magazine set out to find the man who posted the classified ad claiming to need a partner to travel through time with (and who owns their own weapons). Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Kristin Bell, and more star in this quirky tale about what it means to appreciate the time you have - SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED from 2012.
Finally, we dip our toes into the ocean of classics as we take a look at Charleton Heston's finest monkey-themed film 1968's PLANET OF THE APES. A crew of astronauts crash lands on a strange (OR IS IT?) planet and meet up with a race of ca-razy apes! Penned by Rod Serling and a monument to effects make-up this one doesn't monkey around. (Sorry.)
Direct Download, from your pal - Don Lloyd.
All this plus witty banter between friends, a soon to be classic rant from Parker, soundboard antics, Junk Mail, DVD & Blu-ray releases, little to no Skype issues, Face To Face chat, Nerd News and so much more!
