JFD365: Mad Bull 34, Serial Experiments Lain, The Dragon Dentist

If you're sad like we're sad and you're not sure why, it's probably because everyone's favorite new Junk Food Dinner theme month of 2017 (so far) - Ani-May, is finally coming to an end. But fret not, faithful junkie - we're closing it out in grand fashion with a trio of actual, genuine, Japanese anime flicks (or shows, or something)!

First up! You'll never believe the crazy hijinks (both sexual and violent in nature) going on in Mad Bull 34 (from 1990). It's one of those standard buddy cop flicks where dudes get their heads lopped off by oncoming trains, if you get my drift. You'll love this one.

Next! Sean channels his inner goth teenage girl with 1998's stylish but sleepy Serial Experiments Lain! It's got enough shots of power lines to keep him interested, but will Kevin or Parker give any fucks?

Finally, a film that Parker Bowman has been waiting for, for a long time. The Dragon Dentist from 2017 marks a certain milestone for Mr. Bowman on a certain Letterboxd website, which is meaningful somehow. Also, dragons get their dental hygiene looked after. It's Japanimation!

All this plus witty banter between friends, The Frisbie Opinion, Eric from Omaha, a Julian Sands classic our beloved Parker Bowman hasn't seen, monsters made out of nipples and shitty crap about time travel, Kevin Moss lying through his teeth about Oldies dot com, a Hot Topic Monster Mash, a Whitman's Sampler of super ghoulish horror flicks, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, half-dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, semi-brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD's June Movie Schedule

Hey, kiddos! Here's a look at what we're up to in June!

It's time once again for JFDecades! Unlike last year, each decade won't be getting its own week, instead we'll do one movie from each decade for 3 weeks, covering 90 years worth of cinema magic. If you'll remember, we randomized who'd get which week and it turned out horribly for Parker who got the 20s, 30s and 40s. The rest was divvied up between Sean and Kevin.

We're also doing another Patreon-picked episode, too! It's gonna be a hoot!

Until June, spend some time on our YouTube page or donating to our Patreon and getting bonus episodes!

JFD363: Fritz the Cat, Mr. Sprinkles, Where the Dead Go to Die


We're all adults here, right? That doesn't mean we still can't watch cartoons. Ani-May rolls right along as we take a look at three adult animation oddities.

Up first, it's the granddaddy of adult animation, Fritz the Cat from 1972. Directed by Ralph Bakshi and based off the comics of R. Crumb, the x-rated 'toon made a lot of money and kicked open the door for cartoons to be dirty.

Next, back in 2007, Jack Black, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab teamed up to create Acceptable TV, an animated sketch show that briefly ran on VH1. One of the more popular skits was Mr. Sprinkles about a Cat-in-the-Hat type creature who's losing his mind because kids are never bored anymore. From the creative team behind Rick & Morty.

And finally, what do you get when you mix PS1 cut-scene style computer animation and Ghoul Summer-worthy subject matter? Where the Dead Go to Die from 2012. It's horrendous.

All this plus witty banter between friends, listener voicemails, wrong theme songs Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!

JFD362: Evil Toons, The Lawnmower Man, Cool World

We're kicking off a new (annual?) tradition at Junk Food Dinner - Ani-May, our month-long tribute to animation in cult films! But we're easing into it first with a "Live Action / Animation" theme show - three flicks that blur the lines between the two mediums!

First up! Fred Olen Ray's poster/cover art for Evil Toons (from 1992) promises a whole lot of spooky/sexy cartoon action. But can it deliver, or will the budget be too impossibly low to accomodate any actual animation? And will we still be charmed by it?

Next! In what some are calling a potential "Freado Pick", we discuss the world's only Officially Desiginated non-adaptation of a Stephen King novel: The Lawnmower Man! "Groundbreaking" CGI animation sequences are used in the movie's many Virtual Reality sequences, where an "intellectually disabled" man learns latin and telekensis through the power of drugs. Starring the pilot from Lost! Also from 1992!

Finally, a film that Paramount studios clearly had no idea what to do with, and maybe we don't either. Cool World finds Ralph Bakshi near the end of his career, and Brad Pitt at the start of his. It finds a home for cartoon characters and flesh and blood alike. But does it find out a way to balance cartoonish piano-dropping gags with dark, sexual satire? Only JFD can find out. This one's ALSO from 1992?!

All this plus witty banter between friends, realistic hair and fabrics, pissed off Australians, a Carpenter's joke, the best & worst voicemail callers, steaming open root cellars, repeated disc picking, realistic film-watching standards, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, dry sneezes, wet belches, mega-decrepit erections, brominated vegetable gleeks and a whole lot more!
