JFD189: The Burbs, Crank: High Voltage, License to Drive

Me-Vember concluded as Parker unveils his Two Coreys theme show that secretly masquerades as a Cranksgiving celebration.

First, we revist a childhood favorite (well, for some people anyway), as Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern and Corey Feldman and some asshole get paranoid about their new neighbors in the 1989 hit, "The Burbs," directed by Joe Dante.

Next, we celebrate Cranksgiving with Chev Chelios by discussing 2009's "Crank: High Voltage." The movie continues the adventure of a Hitman who needs to continually recharge his heart while hunting down bad guys and avoiding weirdos.

Finally, Corey Haim rebels and steals his grandpa's car to take his dream girl on a date in 1988's "License to Drive." Corey Feldman plays Haim's sidekick in this pinnacle of classic Two Coreys Cinema.

All this, plus Nerd News, DVDs and Blu Rays, the Sweetman, Sean's secret driving history and a bunch of other jazz.

JFD188: Fast Times at Ridgemont High, 20 Million Miles to Earth, Foxy Brown


 Well, this is Kevin... 's episode of Junk Food Dinner as Me-vember chugs right along.

This week K-Diggity gushes about three of his favorite flicks and hopes and prays Parker and Sean feel the same way about these beloved classics.

Up first, Cameron Crowe and Amy Heckerling take us through a year in the life of a group of 80's California high schoolers in Fast Times at Ridgemont High from 1982. Featuring an all-star cast of young actors, including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates and Sean Penn, this movie raised the bar for teen titty flicks into the stratosphere.

 Next, the JFD crew travel 20 Million Miles to Earth with a crew of astronauts who return from Venus with an alien goo that soon hatches into a giant monster that terrorizes Italy in this 1957 sci-fi staple featuring ground-breaking stop-motion animation work by the incomparable Ray Harryhausen.

And last but not least, we all fall in love with Pam Grier as Foxy Brown, a super sexy, super bad, one chick hit squad who's out to seek revenge on the no good dope pushers who killed her man. Afros, sexy outfits, evil honkeys, guns, explosions and soul music are plentiful in this exciting blaxploitation classic from 1974 directed by the great Jack Hill.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Parker's slang goes mainstream, Nerd News, this week's DVD and blu-ray releases, Kyle From Kentucky, mechanical men, Moorcock talk, Sammy Hagar and so much more!

JFD187: Tales From the Quadead Zone, Deadline, In the Mouth of Madness


Forget everything you know about Junk Food Dinner's usual movie selection processes! We've upended everything with our brand-new ME-VEMBER Initiative! For the next three weeks, each of your JFD hosts will curate an entire episode as they see fit! This week, get ready for WRITER'S SHOCK! 3 Horror Flicks About Horror Novels! as presented by intrepid Junk Food Rookie Sean Byron!

To celebrate the Massacre Video release of The Complete Works of Chester Turner (Black Devil Doll from Hell and Tales From the Quadead Zone) on DVD and VHS this week, we chat with Louis Justin, owner of Massacre about the films of Chester Turner! Hear the behind the scenes tales of the DVD commentary recording sessions, learn what Chester is up to today, and find out all about devil dolls who are black and from hell. Afterwards, we dive into our review of Tales From the Quadead Zone, Chester's 1987 horror anthology follow-up to Black Devil Doll From Hell about a woman who reads from a spooky book to her ghost kid. Also, hair gets blown around ever so slightly (woooooooosh).

Next, a guy whose name sounds sorta like "Mario Ass Party" directed this surprisingly mean-spirited and gory low-budget Canadian thriller about a horror writer's (no, not Stephen King) descent into madness and poor eyeglass selection, in 1984's Deadline! You've never heard of anyone in this movie, but you'll never forget that goddamned farm goat. Bonus: lots of child murder and sexual violence!

Creepy spoopy touches abound in this later John Carpenter homage to HP Lovecraft, 1994's In the Mouth of Madness starring the underrated Sam Neill! Horror writer Sutter Cane (no, NOT Stephen King!) has disappeared from sight, and his publisher needs to find him, but nobody expects to uncover the mysteries in the small New Hampshire town where he may be hiding. John Glover, David Warner and Charlton Heston appear in minor roles.

All this plus witty banter between friends, spilling wine and mustard, Skype crackles, Ever So Slight Hair Movements, Shirley Jones's mother's porcelain bell, clown zombies, intense method actor goats, and so much more!

We can't decide!! Who gets the Parker Action Figure?

Hey, gang. As we said on the new episode (JFD186), we just can't decide who gets the Parker Action Figure. We've decided that we love more than a few of the submissions and are going to use them for individual things coming up, like the iTunes logo or the website banner or maybe even more soft shirts and stickers. But, who gets the coveted Parker action figure? That's for you to decide! We're gonna post our favorites of the bunch here and then you can vote for your favorite (and most deserving of a tiny Parker) by using the little poll in the top left corner.

We want to thank everyone who sent something in. We love you for spending any time at all drawing or making something for us. You guys really put a skip in our step with all these cool submissions.

#1 Chainsaw VHS

#2 Garbage Pail

#3 Old School Class

#4 Burger Time
#5 Heavy Doobies
#6 VHS Dinner

And, this honorable mention from @Sawfan666 that we won't let you vote for because you'd probably pick it and we'd be stuck with it forever

JFD186: Randomizer 5000 IV: Nukie, Pterodactyl Woman from Beverly Hills, Skyscraper

The Randomizer 5000 picked our movies this week. And it seems to hate us.

First, an Alien searches Africa for his lost brother and some tissues in the 1988 ET- rip off, "Nukie." This South African flick is widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made.

Next, an archaeologist meets a shaman invokes a curse that turns his wife into a sexy dinosaur in 1997's "Pterodactyl Woman from Beverly Hills." This flick stars Beverly D'Angelo and was directed by Philipe Mora ("The Howling" 2 & 3) and put out by Troma. Which are all the phrases that the Randomizer looks for.

Finally, terrorists take over an LA high rise that houses a Japanese business and it's up to Bruce Willis to stop them. Wait. Wrong movie. It's up to Anna Nicole Smith to stop them in 1996's "Skyscraper." Also regarded as one of the worst flicks of all time, Smith seems too hopped up on goofballs to even stand, much less be an action star.

We also announce the fate of the JFD Logo and the Parker Action Figure!

All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, Dinosaur Jr., complete confidentiality, no police involvement, no voicemail marathons, no cookie women, more insect fear and so much more!
