JFD510: Tenement, Akira, Max Hell: Frog Warrior
Ten years of podcasting and ten lifetimes of social distancing measures can't slow down our stride. This week, your JFD pals get right back into the business of gabbing about 3 weird & wild flicks each week. And how weird and wild they are this week... It's Decade TWO of JFD!
Up first! We pull the old sleaze-switcharoo and highlight a surprisingly ghoulish exploitation flick, 1985's Tenement, directed by Roberta Findlay (a porno directing lady)! This low-budget thriller features the exploits of an over-the-top group of gang members terrorizing the denizens of a tenenment. It's got electrified mattresses, racial stereotypes, synth music and old boxes of Quaker Oats! Rated X for Action! Not suggested for squares.
Next up! Y'all ever seen 1988's Akira? Surprisingly, not all of us have! Long-time listeners have been known to marvel at the surprising fact that known Anime Enthuisiast Kevin Moss has avoided it, but what's Bowman's excuse? Listen along as we devour & digest these classic Japanese animated pixels. We might even find out which of these teenagers is named 'Akira'.
Finally! It's a third film: Max Hell Frog Warrior (2002), a movie who has no punctuation in its title. But, actually, is it really even a movie at all? And didn't we already review this thing? What the hell are we doing with our lives?
All this plus Sean's morning routine, Kevin's computerized fiasco, Parker's desire to party with Las Vegas chimpanzees, shade directed at Carole Baskin, we decree the official Doc Antle of Junk Food Dinner callers, two junkmail theme songs, retro snax chatz, Kevin gets baffled, catching up with our old friend BZB, would you believe Sean references product placement in the background of a kitchen, sexual rat-play, who are the true ghouls?, a prostitute accosted, a mild amount of bad action, what is and isn't a movie anyways?, dem Vasquez Rocks, fuck Michael Haneke, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!
