JFD Rewind Episode #3 - The Hunger, Elves, Earthquake


With our planet currently engaged in a never-ending cycle of mourning, we took the time to put together a heartfelt tribute to our fallen heroes, because we care. Unlike the other podcast networks' yearly retrospectives, the fine program we deliver to you this week should be free of all crass commercialism (buy a t-shirt) or attempts to exploit the dead (featuring The Ghost of Freado). If your year has been as bad as ours, you'll need this episode to nurse the horrible hangover that 2017 is sure to become.

So it's come to this: yet another Junk Food Dinner clip show. This week on Junk Food Dinner Rewind: a carefully curated collection of the finest unheard listener voicemails, surprising musical beds, and three classic JFD reviews culled from the vaults. And don't worry - it's got just enough original content that JFD completists will feel slightly guilty having skipped it.

Up first! We get arty with some sexy blood-thirsty immortals in 1983’s The Hunger starring Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon and David Bowie. Featuring guest reviewer megastar Jason Frisbie!

Up next! A pretty young mall employee with a severely damaged home life is befriended by a jolly, bearded man (Dan Haggerty, with smoke encircling his head like a wreath) and together they must stop the Nazis from using evil elves and a magic crystal to create a master race in the deeply dark and disturbing Elves from 1989.

Finally! Things get shaky as we take a look at Earthquake from 1974. When 'the big one' finally hits California, it causes mass destruction; crumbled buildings, fucked up roads and dead bodies everywhere. George Kennedy plays a gruff but kind-hearted cop who tries to keep the peace, while Chuck Heston tries to rescue his wife (Ava Gardner) and his mistress (Geneviève Bujold). Throw in appearances by Richard Roundtree as an Evel Knievel-type stuntman and Walter Matthau as the saddest, drunkest pimp/clowns you'll ever see and you've got quite the spectacle.

All this plus witty banter between friends, witty banter between Freados, zero Nerd Newsies, no week's DVD & blu-ray releases, absolute confidentiality, continued lack of police involvement, robot voices, musical interludes, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a little bit more!

JFD345:The NeverEnding Story (Audio Commentary)


As we close out 2016, we celebrate another milestone; our 1,000th movie reviewed! As we do with each 100th movie on JFD, we are doing a full-length audio commentary for a movie that you, the listeners, picked. Although, this year, much like the Presidential Elections here in the US, there is some speculation about foreign tampering with the results.

Nevertheless, we soldier on and yack our way through the 1984 children's fantasy tale The NeverEnding Story. This German special effects epic about a boy becoming engrossed in a fantasy adventure book was a staple of a lot of our childhoods, but how does it hold up? Grab your copy of NeverEnding Story, pop it in and watch along with us to find out!

WARNING: This is not a typical episode of Junk Food Dinner. This is an audio commentary. This episode is meant to be listened to while you watch The NeverEnding Story. If you try to listen to this episode and you are not watching The NeverEnding Story along with us, a lot of this will not make any sense.

JFD344: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Jack Frost, Feeders 2: Slay Bells

It's Christmas, Junkies! Grab your candy canes and egg nog as we settle into three holiday-themed movies.

First, it's the MST3K classic, "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians," where aliens kidnap Santa in an effort to bring Christmas to Mars. Talk about cultural appropriation!

Next, a serial killer is turned into a mutant snowman via "genetic material" in "Jack Frost."

Finally, the Polonia brothers return to JFD with "Feeders 2: Slay Bells," the sequel to the SOV alien invasion flick we did a long time ago. This time with more Christmas!

All this, plus we reveal the (controversial) winner of the JFD 1,000th movie poll! Hint: Here's the final tally:

All that plus Nerd News, VoiceMails, Junkmails, an assassination?!, nice words about Beyond the Gates, cool songs, DVDs, Dr. Strange Chat, LaLaLand Chat and so much more!

JFD343: U.S. Open Sores, Butt Bongo Fiesta, Private Parts

This week, we pay tribute to our radio idols Howard Stern and Robin Quivers with a duo-hosted episode sure to surprise and offend. Instead of our usual line-up, you'll join Shock Jock Parker Bowman and his charming co-host Sara (from IllCon) as they crack open three classic "films" from Stern and his wacky band of weirdos.

First up, it started as a joke, but ended up as a very real Nassau Coliseum tennis match between Howard and his producer Gary 'Baba Booey' Dell'Abate. This weird relic of 1989's fascination with radio hosts also includes appearances from Al Lewis and Sam Kinison, and an early collaboration with Billy West. The great film of which we speak is of course U.S. Open Sores.

Next! There's only one way to fiesta - Butt Bongo Fiesta, from 1992 (interestingly listed as "Pornographic Film" in Google's sidebar classification). This infamous pay-per-view special (and home video release) featured all of the Oscar-winning scenes involving Lesbian Dial-A-Dates, John "The ZooKeeper" DeBella, racist tirades, and of course the titular butt bongos. You'll burn your Academy membership if they don't retroactively grant this several Oscars.

Finally! How could we do a Howard Stern theme show without doing 1997's Private Parts? That'd be a stupid thing and so we didn't do that. Instead we talk about it. It's a pretty solid biopic starring some good actors, a group which surprisingly includes the core radio cast.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Kevin's in Boston, Sean flouting corporate vacation scheduling, the return of the toy-based film franchises, aspirational levels of pettiness, the longest butts on earth, a really cool sounding LAPD t-shirt, them news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD342: Death Game, Marley's Revenge, Don't Breathe


This week's episode of JFD preys on your most secret of fears; your fear of being terrorized by unstable young girls, your fear of being kidnapped by drug-hating rednecks or your fear of unkillable blind veterans. Let's face it, this is the real shit keeping you up at night!

Up first, a well-to-do middle-aged man (Seymour Cassel) is home alone when his wife and kids go out of town, but his solo weekend is interrupted when two young girls (Sondra Locke and Colleen Camp) knock on his door looking for a place to get out of the rain. But after the two seduce him, things quickly turn ugly as the girls begin to threaten and terrorize him throughout his home in Death Game from 1977.

Then, we resurrect a super obscure, low-budget regional horror film from North Carolina, Marley's Revenge: The Monster Movie from 1989. In this flick, two goofy pals are trying to do... something with some refugees when they are preyed upon by rednecks vigilantes who think they're smuggling drugs. But shit really hits the fan when the zombies and alligator monster show up.

And finally, we continue to delve into some more of the cinematic interests of 2016 with Don't Breathe. In this tense crime thriller/horror flick, directed by Fede Alvarez (director the Evil Dead re-make), three Detroit youths break into the house of a blind, old veteran hoping to score some cash, but end up getting more than they bargained for.

All this plus witty banter between friends, Love Witch love, Sweetman's analysis of horror-themed wrestlers, Hatless Jackson, Britain's new porn rules, the burning of punk memorabilia, Chinese Mad Max rip-offs, Blu-ray Picks, the best song ever about picking up girls, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!
