JFD209: Cheap Thrills, Hooper, Super Inframan


Get into it, Junkies. JFD is back! First up, a wealthy, hip LA couple offer a old friends, Pat Healy and Ethan Embry cash to do exceedingly terrible things in the black comedy from 2014, "Cheap Thrills."

Next, Burt Reynolds is an aging, pill-popping stunt man in 1978's "Hooper." The flick is a semi-autobiographical story directed by Hal Needham ("Body Slam," "Megaforce") and co-stars Sally Field and Adam West.

Finally, the Shaw Brothers bring us China's first superhero in 1975's "Super Inframan." When various underground monsters, demon princesses and skeleton men attack the Earth, only Inframan, a bio-mechanical wonder, can save us.

All this plus witty banter between friends, monster confusion, Nerd News, Blu-rays, giggling, coughing and so much more!

JFD208: The Harder They Come, Evil Bong, Enter The Void


Break out your heavy doobies, call in sick to work and celebrate 4/20 week with JFD as we take a look at three stoner-friendly flicks.

 Up first, we travel to Jamaica (home of the heaviest doobies) where Reggae star Jimmy Cliff plays Ivan, a country boy trying to make it in the big city. When his musical aspirations don't turn out like he planned, he turns to weed slinging and gun play and only after he's become a wanted fugitive does his music begin to resonate with the people of Jamaica in the 1972 midnight movie The Harder They Come.

 Then, a young nerd boards a room in an apartment with a group of college age stoners. When one of the potheads mail-orders a haunted bong, the roommates begin to die one by one (well actually they just travel to a strip club located inside the bong) and it's up to the nerd and his new girlfriend to save them in Evil Bong from 2006.

 Finally, we follow the exploits of a young drug dealer in Japan as he trips out, dies and comes back as a ghost in the insanely trippy, ulta colorful and hyper-stylized world of Enter the Void from 2009 directed by Gasper Noe.

 All this plus witty banter between friends, heavy doobie smoking, mellow tunes, Parker geeking out about Captain America, Nerd News, Blu-rays, giggling, coughing and so much more!

JFD 207: It Conquered the World, Black Caesar, The Island of Dr. Moreau


Junk Food Dinner pays tribute to American International Pictures on the 60th anniversary of their formation by discussing three very different AIP flicks!

First up, we check out an early Roger Corman alien monster flick starring Lee Van Cleef, It Conquered the World, from 1956! This mysteriously-not-on-DVD cult classic is fondly remembered as one of the better episodes of MST3K, but is the bizarre traffic-cone shaped alien amusing enough without Joel’s commentary? Well, it does have mind-control bats.

Next up, Larry “The Stuff” Cohen directs Fred “The Hammer” Williamson in an underrated blaxploitation gem - 1973’s Black Caesar! James Brown provides the funky soundtrack to this stylish and violent organized crime flick!

Finally, we get sent to The Island of Dr. Moreau! This 1973 adaptation features Burt Lancaster, Michael York, and a whole host of weird looking humanimals - even that cute Hyena one. Stay tuned through the end for flaming tiger attacks. Also, we spoil the crap out of this one so if somehow that matters, be advised.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Parker’s Monster Truck Party, Junk Mail Aplenty, Spanish-Language Neon Maniacs, Nerd Pubes, Killer Real Estate, Mind Control Bats, RuPaul’s Humanimal Drag Race and so much more!

JFD206: Spring Break Audio Commentary

We're reviewing our 600th movie tonight. And that's cause for a special kind of show! This is going to be an audio commentary for the movie you, the JFD listeners, voted for: 1983's "Spring Break" directed by Sean S. Cunningham.

So, warning: This is not our usual show. You're probably going to want to grab your copy of "Spring Break" and watch it along with us to get the most out of the episode. Or just listen. We're not your boss.

We'll be back next week with 3 new movies, junk mails, Nerd News and all that jazz!
