JFD609: The Wild Bunch, Play Misty For Me, Arcade

Kevin's goofing off this week at his annual Bostonian Birthday Bash, so we reached out to the one and only (hatless) Jackson Stewart (of Beyond the Gates renown!) to fill in while we chat about three killer classics.

Up first! It's Sam Peckinpah's classic revisionist western The Wild Bunch, from 1969! A band of outdated outlaws spill sweat and blood in equal parts into the Mexican desert, and boy has it never looked so danged gorgeous. But will grandpa-skeptic Parker Bowman dig these cowboys?

Next up! Clint Eastwood stars and directs (for the first time!) with Play Misty For Me (from 1971)! A suspenseful psychosexual 70s thriller set up in the Big Sur region of Central California, some critics (on this podcast) have noted the bizarre haircuts of the leading actors as worth taking notice of.

Finally! Of course, it's 1993's Arcade, because Parker's obsession with VR-based content continues, even when it's produced by Full Moon Pictures.

All this plus cutting it up with the boys, vintage wallpapers, a podcaster's fatal fate, the return of Nightmare Fede, a vampiric inquiry, sun-bronzed beach boy (not beach bum) bonanzas, Don Siegel sidebars, bad VR, a check-in with the junkmailers, virtual Kevin, your winning numbers, nerd news and even more! Recorded live-to-tape on National Peanut Cluster Day, 2022!!
