Junkfood Cinema

The Summer of 1987 series continues on and this week heads to a dark place. A Canadian suburb?   ...yes

Modern Rogue's Jason Murphy joins us for a deep dive into The Gate. The Gate is the answer to every heavy metal horror movie that painted metal as the catalyst for evil. Because this time, metal saves the day! It has as much heart as an Amblin film, astoundingly creepy special effects, and managed to trounce Ishtar at the box office--released the same weekend--despite having a fraction of the budget.

All this plus, we chat about what Larry Cohen's Doctor Strange would have looked like, get alarmingly comfortable with Double Team, and make some very exciting show-related announcements.

You got ears? We got demons! Enjoy!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far removed from good taste. It's Junkfood Cinema: The Podcast!

As Brian and Cargill trek through the Summer of 87, they visit planet Brooks and go to plaid while juggling their thoughts on Spaceballs! How did the biggest Star Wars parody of all time manage to completely avoid resembling the story structure of Star Wars but at all? Is it among Brooks' best films? Has nostalgia colored over the rough edges?

All this, plus the guys quote their favorite lines like crazy and merchandise the hell out of Junkfood Cinema. Download, listen, and share to adequately show off the size of your schwartz!

Summer of 87 stops for a spell in a little Rhode Island town as Brian and Cargill discuss the wickedly fantastic Witches of Eastwick.

Did Jack Nicholson ever come back from this role? Does the film's feminism hold up? And, wait, George "Mad Max" Miller directed this with a score by John Williams?!

All this plus, how the dangerously insane producer Jon Peters tried to mix witchcraft with...aliens? Gather round the movie cauldron and Cher a witches brew with Junkfood Cinema!

We ain't got time to preamble, this is one of the big tentpole movies of 1987 and one of the biggest reasons we're doing our Summer of 87 series: Predator.

Brian and Cargill discuss the cast, structure, effects, and music of one of the greatest action films of all time. They also contemplate whether Shane Black was kidnapped by Joel Silver, chat about how Jean-Claude Van Damme was almost in this movie, and figure out that...Krull is part of the Predator universe?

All that, plus more impressions than you can immediately blast out of your mind with a shoulder-mounted laser cannon. Download this episode and share it so it doesn't remain invisible. Oh, and don't forget to GET TO DA CHOPPAH!!!
