JFD307: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown


It's our third and final Director's Week of March as we talk about the ultra violent and ultra stylized first three films of Quentin Tarantino.

Up first, six blue-collar criminals plan and execute a jewel heist but when things go wrong, they quickly realize one of them is a cop in Reservoir Dogs from 1992. Tarantino directs a stellar cast including Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen and Chris Penn.

Next, the film you couldn't escape in the mid-90's, Pulp Fiction. Tarantino's iconic character study of the lives of criminals and low-lifes inspired a whole generation of filmmakers and film watchers. Another incredible cast including John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman and Ving Rhames.

Finally, Tarantino adapt's Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch into a gritty ode to blaxploitation films with Jackie Brown from 1997. Starring the always fantastic Pam Grier as the title character who suckers both gangsters and cops to score a half a million bucks and avoid jail time. As you'd expect, another top notch cast featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Robert Forster, Michael Keaton and Bridget Fonda.

All this plus witty banter between friends, the wacky world of seeing Crispin Glover live, horror convention chat, should kids be allowed in R-rated movies?, the death of Dr. Giggles, brain chat, Nerd News and Blu-Ray Picks, continued lack of police involvement (unless we're slicing off their ears) and a whole lot more!

JFD306: Blue Velvet, The Straight Story, Mulholland Drive

Well, strap on your nitrous oxide mask and prepare to zoom in on a slow motion match lighting. It's our second director theme show of the month as Sean brings us three of his favorite David Lynch films! The only thing that could be more exciting is the fact we're joined by Jason "Razor Babes" Frisbie of Pool Party Radio fame!

First up! Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern are innocent small town kids who uncover the sick and twisted underbelly of suburban American, epitomized by Dennis Hopper and his gang of drug-dealing, sexually-abusing thugs (including Jack Nance, Brad Dourif, and Dean Stockwell). Featuring a great performance from Isabella Rosalini and classic soundtrack tracks from Roy Orbison and Bobby Vinton, it's David Lynch's landmark 1986 neo-noir, Blue Velvet!

Up next! You may not have realized that David Lynch directed a heart-warming G-rated true-story family drama for Disney in 1999, but he sure did and it's definitely called The Straight Story. It stars Richard Farnsworth and Sissy Spacek. These are all true facts, we promise. But is it worth watching, or would we ride a lawn mower across state boundaries to escape it?

Finally! Mulholland Drive (1999)? That's where I was going!

All this plus witty banter between friends, off-color humor, our gateways to Lynchdom, secret 8mm tapes, Parker Bowman's curse against David Bowie, Skype Noise Strikes Back, VVitch Chats, dead armadillos, teenager Johnny Dingle, Nerd News & DVD Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD305: Slacker, Dazed & Confused, Before Sunrise


Hey, junkies. We're kicking off the first part of a series where each one of your hosts gets his own show to talk up his favorite director. This week is Parker's favorite director: Richard Linklater.
We're going chronologically and first up is his first movie: "Slacker" from 1991. The experimental film follows bohemian eccentric Austin, Texas natives as they walk. And talk. And ... that's about it.
Next, is "Dazed and Confused," probably Linklater's most well-known film. The movie's got an all-star cast (Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Parker Posey, etc.) who play teens who walk. And talk. And get very very high.
Finally, Ethan Hawke is an American on vacation who meets Julie Delpy, a French lady, and they spend a night together in Vienna in "Before Sunrise."
All this, plus Nerd News, DVDs, Dorm Chat, Poster Chat, Cool Guy News, Face to Face Chat, and tons of super more stuff.

JFD304: Miracle at St. Anna, The Legend of Billie Jean, Lady in the Water


This week the JFD boys fall victim to the Randomizer 5000 and you sadistic listeners who stocked the Randomizer with over 500 crappy movies. In all honesty, it could have ended up MUCH worse.

Up first, we take a look at Spike Lee's 2008 flick about a group of black WWII soldiers in Italy who get mixed up with a little kid, a decapitated statue head and weird love triangles in Miracle of St. Anna.

Next, Helen Slater (SuperGirl) and Christian Slater (True Romance) are two redneck siblings in southern Texas who confront a sleazy business man after his son trashes their motor scooter. But when the creep gets grabby with Helen Slater, Christian puts a bullet in him and the kids go on the road with their friends Martha Gehman and Yeardley Smith (the voice of Lisa Simpson) in The Legend of Billie Jean from 1985.

And finally, M. Night Shyamalan weaves a tale about a apartment manager (Paul Giamatti) who encounters a mythical creature (Bryce Dallas Howard) living in the pool in Lady in the Water from 2006. Also, it's about how M. Night Shyamalan is a genius and film critics are idiots.

All this, plus Kevin's stuffed up nose, Oscar talk, experiences with excited teens in the theater, outrage over our Aliens review, Matthew Sweetman partying with food mascots, Nerd News, DVDs and blu-rays of the week, Pat Benetar songs, questionable Asian characters, sneezes and so much more!
