JFD267: Aguirre the Wrath of God, Tapeheads, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me

Well, we made it. Even a perilous trip down the Amazon river can’t stop Junk Food Dinner (cue the pan flutes). It was a wild ride, but we’ve survived. This week, we follow a varied group of various weirdos through a variety of films!

Up first, we finally get some Werner Herzog onto the show with 1972’s Aguirre, The Wrath of God! The first of Herzog’s to feature Klaus Kinski, this recreation of a historical journey made by Conquistadors through the Peruvian Jungle was an early hit on the midnight movie circuit, and features plenty of monkeys.

Next! We flash back to 1988 Los Angeles, where John Cusack and Tim Robbins are an odd couple of guys with a single passion: to make very silly music videos. It’s got stop-motion chicken wings! It’s Tapeheads!

Finally, we take a stroll over to Sean’s neck of the woods for the under-seen romantic slice-of-weirdo-life comedy Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me from 1992! This low-profile indie flick captures a time and a place where it was still appropriate to have a Pixies song on your soundtrack!

All this plus witty banter between friends, people who are pretty chill about video games, headcolds, Nerd News and This Week in DVD, mucinex fever dreams, downloadable content, dick slammer, more skype noise than normal, polls and tallies, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!
