JFD176 - For Y'ur Height Only, Kung Fu Hustle, Rumble in the Bronx!

The bad news is; Shock & Awe-gust is almost over. The good news; we're going out with a bang... er, a punch with our Kung Fu Comedy (KFC) theme show!

Up first, we see international superstar/Filipino dwarf Weng Weng do his best James Bond impression all while dealing kung fu blows to an evil crime syndicate in 1981's For Y'ur Height Only. Bad dubbing, wacky gadgets and awkward love scenes abound in this certified cult classic.

Then, Hong Kong film veteran Stephen Chow writes, directs, produces and stars in one of the most stylish, funniest and prettiest kung fu movies ever made, 2004's Kung Fu Hustle. When The Axe Gang terrorizes the residents of a poor neighborhood Pig Sty Alley, they soon learn that they fucked with the wrong 'hood as several of the residents also happen to be kung fu masters.

Finally, actor, stuntman and all around badass Jackie Chan punches his way into America's heart, after being an international star for years, in the 1995 kung fu action flick Rumble in the Bronx.Chan comes to America and gets harassed by a gang of street thugs for his troubles. But needless to say, Jackie returns the favor with some expert kung fu and stunt work in this nostalgic favorite.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, Junk Mail, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, a chance to win a Parker doll, feelin' old and much more.

JFD175: The Getaway, The Good The Bad The Weird, Race with the Devil!


Buckle up, knuckleheads! Junk Food Dinner's first annual SHOCK & AWEGUST drives onwards with this week's action themed show: Chase Movies! Join us as we examine three very different cult chase films.

Up first, Steve McQueen plays an ex-convict on the run after a failed bank heist threatens to send him back to prison in Sam Peckinpah's 1972 film THE GETAWAY! Low-key heist scenes, fast-paced chase scenes, and casual barbecue rib tossing collide in this movie written by Jim Thompson and Walter Hill!

Then, we race over to 1930's Manchuria, where three ruthless men chase each other across desert wastelands in search of a treasure map in South Korea's 2008 comedic western action flick THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD. Director Kim Jee-Woon and star Byung-hun Lee of I Saw the Devil re-team for this cartoonish tribute to spaghetti westerns, and are joined in the process by actors Woo-sung Jung (Reign of Assassins) and Kang-ho Song (The Host).

Finally, take out the ol' RV for a leisurely drive across Texas, until murderous Satanists force us to RACE WITH THE DEVIL in this 1975 grindhouse classic starring Peter Fonda and Warren Oates. Marvel at the wonderful features of this luxury Winnebago, from the essentials like the Roman Bath to the exotics like the Live Rattlesnakes, as we barrel down the highway towards Amarillo.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Sad Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, bad skypeness, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, bullshit CG hawks, the return of the Sweet Man, finger choppers, Junk (voice)Mails, and so much more!

JFD174: Jamaa Fanaka's Penitentiary Trilogy

Shock & Awegust continues as we discuss Jamaa Fanaka's "Penitentiary" trilogy.

First, Martel "Two Sweet" Cordone is locked up for a crime he didn't commit and must fight for his freedom in 1979's "Penitentiary." Too Sweet must navigate through dangerous land mines like stabbings while trying to avoid becoming someone's property.

Next, Too Sweet is a free man, but must fight for revenge and what's right in 1982' "Penitentiary 2," co-starring Mr. T. Ernie Hudson takes over the role of Half Dead, Two Sweet's arch enemy from the first movie, who's seeking revenge on Too Sweet, who just wants to live a peaceful life.

Finally, after being slipped a drug that induced a murderous fugue state, Too Sweet's back in prison and has to fight with his guts in 1987's "Penitentiary 3." Too Sweet must contend with the arch villain Serenghetti and a small creature played by The Haiti Kid.

All this, DVDs, Nerd News, Junkmails from the original Too Sweet and Kyle from Kentucky, No Police Involvement, 100% confidentiality and Guts.

JFD173: Deadly Prey, Missing in Action, Dark of the Sun

At ease, soldier! Get ready for guns, muscles and explosions as we kick off Shock & Awe-gust, our month-long salute to the craziest action flicks ever with a balls-to-the-wall WAR/COMBAT-themed show!

Up first, what happens when a covert mercenary training camp kidnaps people to hunt for practice, only to accidentally capture an elite, specially trained killing machine in the form of Ted Prior? Well, if you've seen any adaptation of The Most Dangerous Game, you probably have a good idea. But nevertheless, we revel in the ridiculous over-the-top action that is David A Prior's Deadly Prey from 1987.

Then, Chuck Norris is a Vietnam veteran who won't rest until all of his war buddies, who are still prisoners of war in 'Nam, are freed. So, before you can say "revisionist history", Chuck and his pal M. Emmet Walsh are tearing through the Vietnamese jungle killing everything in sight in the1984 Cannon Films action flick Missing in Action directed by Joseph Zito.

And finally, Rod Taylor is a mercenary hired to rescue a group of Europeans, not to mention a shitload of diamonds, from the African Congo along with his team, a drunk, an ex-Nazi, a young Jim Brown and the beautiful Yvette Mimieux. Along the way there is a lot of gun battles, a chainsaw fight(!), train explosions and good old fashion hand-to-hand combat in 1968's Dark of the Sun directed by Jack Cardiff.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, a chance to win a Parker doll, classic punk rock, rear projection, Junk (voice)Mail, and so much more!

Design our new logo, and Parker Bowman (the action figure) will be your friend to the end!

Hey, you, Junk Food Junkies! You've been asking yourself, how can I get more JFD into my life? I'm already subscribed on iTunes, you say, and I'm already pouring over your every tweet and Facebook jam, you claim, while rocking one of your many JFD t-shirts. Until now, your options were limited. But now, we have an exciting new development to announce: the arrival of the ultra-limited Parker Bowman action figure!

This Parker Bowman action figure was hand crafted in felted wool by friend of the show Xiangzi Li. It stands a stately 9" tall, and is ready to kick frog ass at a moment's notice. This ultra-limited, super-luxurious fine product is presented in an edition of 1, making it even rarer than the rarest Blood Lake videotapes.

How can I get my grubby paws on this work of art, you ask? Well, we've devised a clever way for you, the listener, to provide us with free slave labor in exchange for fame, glory, and a miniature Parker for your desk/mantle/altar. We are accepting submissions for a new Junk Food Dinner logo, and the lucky winner will receive their very own Parker in the mail. Here are the details:

JUNK FOOD DINNER LOGO CONTEST!!

1. Please send your logo submission to JFDPodcast@gmail.com with the subject "Logo Submission".
2. We will be accepting submissions until at least November 1st, so take your time, dudes.
3. Vector art would be sweet. Pixels are okay too but please try for at least 1024x1024 or larger.
4. Get creative and come up with something you feel captures the spirit of the show. There are no restrictions!
5. As an added bonus, one random entrant will receive an awesome THANKSKILLING POSTER in the mail! It's a sweet full-size double-sided one-sheet, too!
6. We'll reserve the right to use any submitted images in any context we see fit, but we will credit the artist whenever possible.


DISCLAMER: We, the makers of the JFD Parker Bowman Action Figure™ cannot provide any warranty for this product; specifically, we cannot provide assurance this doll will not, when you are safely tucked in your bed, arise from its stasis and become not only sentient but murderous. Should this happen to you, do not attempt to chase him to the factory where he was created, nor should you let him follow you to military school.

JFD172: Escape from New York
(audio commentary)

We're celebrating our 500th movie movie reviewed on the show this week!! We're doing an audio commentary for the movie you guys picked, Escape from New York. And, as an added bonus: The gang's all here. We're joined by former podcaster, Mark Freado!

We wanna thank all you dudes for supporting us through 500 movies and 172 episodes, so this is a bonus episode. JFD173 (the first episode of Shock and Awegust) will be up this week, too. So, if you guys feel like you wanna support us some more, you can Go to our iTunes and subscribe, rate or review the show. This will help other people find our little show and your reviews will sell them on why they should listen to JFD rather than crummy podcasts like Marc Maron or Adam Carolla or Pool Party. You can also like us on Facebook and chat with us about movies and whatnot. You can also get fashionable and get one of the last remaining JFD shirts from Hide the Bodies.

Remember: This is NOT a real episode of JFD. You should watch Escape from New York while listening. We'll be commenting on the movie and there are occasional stretches where we're not talking because Adrienne Barbeau's boobs are on screen. Also, due to the way we recorded this so that the movie's audio wouldn't pick up, we have a little less audio quality than normal. Sorry.

Direct Donloyd

Thanks for listening! We love you.

JFD171: House Party, The Green Slime, Vice Academy!


It's time for another summertime jam with your Junk Food Dinner homeboys, as we cover three of the dopest flicks!

Up first, we meet up with early-90's rappers/actors/famous people Kid 'n Play and Martin Lawrence for the party of the year with 1990's House Party. Will beleaguered student Kid be able to avoid the police, his pops, and the school bullies in order to reach the wild dance party his pal Play his hosting while his parents are out of town? Find out as we discuss this surprisingly blaxploitation-themed gem from our childhoods.

Then, we head up to the big meatball in the sky and try to prevent the Earth's destruction from an impending astroid collision, but end up unleashing a fate far worse with 1968's The Green Slime! This Japanese/American co-production is one of the more bizarre and campy classics of 60's science fiction, with rubbery monsters and terrible miniatures.

Finally, we hit the mean streets of the San Fernando Valley with Linnea Quigley, Ginger Lynn and friends with the first entry in Rick Sloane's USA Up All Night movie series, 1989's Vice Academy. Are the goofy antics of this sexy police squad worth watching, or is this just a silly Charlie's Angels / Police Academy spoof worth forgetting? Tune in to find out.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD & blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, Public Enemas, listener tech support, sexy Italian ladies, Junk (voice)Mails, and so much more!
