Junkfood Cinema

Suit up, masters of the mystic arts! This week, One Junky Summer hits some familiar targets. Another sequel, and another Cannon Film? Hell yes! Brian and Cargill fight their way out of paradise in American Ninja 2: The Confrontation!

(a.k.a American Ninja 2: Super Ninjas, a.k.a American Ninja 2: F### It!)

Full disclosure, American Ninja 2 is not the best film JFC has ever covered, but it is among the most hilariously misguided and irresistibly entertaining. The guys discuss the weird ninja movie phenomenon, what signature JCVD role should have gone to Michael Dudikoff, and they also discuss that time Buck Rodgers tried to pick up Cargill's mom?!

The heat is back on...so make sure to store your cupcakes in the fridge.

This week Brian and Cargill head back to L.A. with Axel Foley as One Junky Summer heads into sequel territory once again. On paper, Beverly Hills Cop 2 shouldn't work. Despite Tony Scott at the helm, it cuts back on the action, is edited with a chainsaw, and strips the slobs vs. snobs appeal of the first.

However, the comedy is strong, the music is fantastic, and the freaking Spurs don't have a bench as deep as the villain pool here. Download and listen as they guys explain just how the Axel F this flick manages to succeed.

Cargill expected Project X to fit in perfectly with JFC's Summer of 87 retrospective, Brian however did not expect to be so emotionally affected by the story of Matthew Broderick and a chimp named Virgil.

Turns out, Project X is one of the most perfect Junkfood movies of all time! Not simply because it is beautifully shot, powerfully moving, and expertly written, but also because it features a gathering of stellar performers and creators that could only aptly be described as a Junkfood Cinema reunion.

Join the guys as they go positively ape shit over Project X!
