JFD195: Brainscan, Ghost in the Machine, The Net

Open up your Netscape browser, log on to IRC Chat and donloyd this episode at 28/kbps cuz we're going back to the Internet circa the early '90s, thanks to the magic of computers!

First up, Edward Furlong is a troubled teen obsessed with grunge and horror movies, who tries out the newest in virtual terror, only to discover the game is real in 1994's "Brainscan." The flick mixes '90s techno-nostalgia, Primus and Oscar-nominated talent (seriously).

Next, Rachel Talalay (Freddy's Dead, Tank Girl) directs another tale stolen straight out of Wes Craven's notebooks. A serial killer is killed during an electrical storm and, needless to say, his soul gets stuck in the internet in 1993's "Ghost in the Machine."

Finally, Sandra Bullock plays an introverted computer whiz who gets caught up in an internet conspiracy involving politics, AIDS and Dennis Miller in 1995's "The Net."

All this plus witty banter between friends, Kyle from Kentucky, "Bill From Iowa," Cyber-bullying, Parker's (still) got a cold, talky magical dickheads, VHS dreams and so much more!

  1. I agree that Dennis Leary has been becoming exponentially more annoying with each passing year.

  2. Oh wait, you were talking about Dennis Miller. He's ok, especially in Bordello of Blood.

  3. Any chance of giving the song titles, including the background instrumental music at 46:10 (Twitter promo)?
