JFD357: 7th Anniversary Spectacular!



JFD returns after a long week of partying with a king-sized episode to celebrate our 7-year anniversary!

Up first, the gents regale you with tales of their meet up in Cincinnati where they saw bad movies on the big screen, attended the HorrorHound Convention, saw one of the last performances of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and most importantly ate lots of coneys and 3-ways.

We also break out The Randomizer 5000 to randomize some contest winners and assign some decades for our upcoming JFDecades theme shows.

And as is tradition on JFD every anniversary, we take a look back at all the movies we've watched for the podcast over the last year and recount our Top 5 Favorite and Bottom 5 Least Favorite flicks that we were forced to watch.

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

JFD356: Even Dwarfs Started Small, Burden of Dreams, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

The THRILLING conclusion to our month-long tribute to ego-stroking concludes with our final Me-Arch episode: Sean Byron Presents: A Junk Food Dinner Tribute to the Film Legacy of Werner Herzog! Join along with us as we explore three flicks from the pleasantly grim madman of Bavarian cinema.

First up! An early effort from Werner Herzog has him chronicling a particularly chaotic, if plotless, day in the life of a fictional band of dwarves out in the Canary Islands. The film of course is 1970's Even Dwarfs Started Small! and we're here to report that it does not skimp on the little people!

Next! Making any movie is hard work, but Herzog finds ways to make them maddeningly difficult. Never before was this more obvious than in Les Blank's 1982 documentary Burden of Dreams, which follows Werner as he attempts to pull off the impossible while making Fitzcarraldo. And then the soccer ball goes flat!

Finally, we end the show as we end all truly great shows: smoking crack rocks with Nicolas Cage in a gritty post-Katrina New Orleans. Or at least, that's what it felt like after watching this movie. It's 2009's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, and it just MIGHT change all your thoughts on Nic Cage.

All this plus witty banter between friends, chats about Julia Ducornau's RAW, The Plastic Dome of Norma Jean, the Sweetest Man in Washington DC, King Kong News, Godzilla News, Other Giant Monster News, sick animation burns, Parker's fear of emotional intimacy, continued apologies to Robert from Podcast Town, them weekly news and Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, mega-decrepit erections, gleeks and a whole lot more!

JFD355: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog

Me-Arch continues as we talk about Parker's dude: Joss Whedon!

First, we talk about two Whedon-directed episodes of the show that made him a household name, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Everyone loses their voices in "Hush" and then tragedy strikes in "The Body."

Next, the short-lived Sci Fi show "Firefly" takes to the air once more in the film, "Serenity."

Finally, Whedon and his friends made a short film during a writer's strike. Neil Patrick Harris stars as a vlogging evil scientist in "Dr. Horrible's Sing a Long Blog."

All this, plus Nerd News, exercise chat, DVDs, Logan Chat, a friend of Xanders' here and so much more.

JFD354: A Bucket of Blood, The Wild Angels, Frankenstein Unbound


This week we kick off Me-arch; an entire month where each week one of your JFD hosts picks a director who they love and highlights three flicks from their career. This week, it's Kevin's week and he chose The King of the B's himself, Roger Corman!

Up first, Dick Miller stars as a put-upon busboy at a beatnik coffee house who only wants to be accepted by the artists and poets who frequent it. Unfortunately, he has no real talent. However, when he accidentally kills a cat he gets the idea to cover it in clay and pass it off as art. When that gets him noticed, he sets his sights on bigger prey in 1959's A Bucket of Blood.

Then, Peter Fonda leads a gang of misfit bikers who roam Southern California looking for a good time in 1966's The Wild Angels. But when one of their crew (Bruce Dern) gets shot up by the cops, the gang hatches a plan to bust him out of the hospital but fails to realize dudes with gunshot wounds probably need medical attention.

And finally, John Hurt is a futuristic scientist who develops a new weapon for the US Government, but it also opens a time warp that sends him back to 1817's Switzerland where he runs into Victor Frankenstein (Raul Julia), his monster and Mary Shelley (Bridget Fonda) in 1990's Frankenstein Unbound.

All this plus witty banter between friends, the death of the IMDB message boards, Sean's adventures at the opera, impressions of Get Out, a surprise appearance by Parker's dog, backlash for Sean's Gwar views, sad Nerd News, Blu-ray Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, and a whole lot more!
