Junkfood Cinema

Welcome back to the podcast that is just...so cool. This week, Brian and Cargill take on 60 cops, 40 agents, 30 mobsters, and about 1,000 bullets to find True Romance. They discuss the movie's origins, its dizzying cast list, and how it appeared at the nexus point of independent 90s cinema.

When it comes to Tony Scott films, we cover every conceivable aspect... froma diddled-eyed Joe to damned if I know.

This week, on the podcast with zero cool, Brian and Cargill invite you to hack the planet! Hackers is a time capsule of a movie that, while laughable in its wholly inaccurate depiction of hacker culture, is spectacular and thrilling in its similarly inaccurate depiction of the internet. As The Plague says, "there is no right and wrong, there is only fun and boring." We tend to agree.

Cargill and Brian would like to welcome you to The Rock! We take pleasure in gutting the notion that this 1996 actioner is basic, trashy, and/or brainless. The Rock is a uniquely structured spectacle that houses a wildly subversive political tone and one of cinema's most fascinatingly complex villains. All that, plus Brian can't stop doing a Sean Connery impression. Losers whine about their best, winners download and share this episode.

Brian and Cargill are joined by Austin author/filmmaker Owen Egerton as they all spend one night in the 1980 haunted house masterpiece The Changeling. Subtle at points, starkly terrifying at others, and featuring one of the most heartbreaking opening sequences in cinema, The Changeling was a groundbreaking movie that influenced generations of horror, including Owen's latest film The Axe Murders of Villisca.

Brian and Cargill usher in 2017 with a sneaky new episode of the podcast with far too many secrets...or at least secret sauces. They discuss the phenomenal cast of Sneakers, its ultra cool James Horner score, and where it sits in the Robert Redford spy trilogy. We could tell you more about this episode, but then we'd have to kill you.
