Magnum Force

maxresdefault.jpg

After quite a while from when we covered DIRTY HARRY, we finally get onto it's first sequel MAGNUM FORCE.

With this one we discuss the film and how it feels somewhat like an apology, for the unapologetic character of Harry Callahan.

Whilst we do stick to reviewing the film, we do go off on some little tangents (nothing as drastic as last weeks show), but then again, it wouldn't be an MMC episode without a tangent or three, right?

Also, please listen for more info on the status of our youtube channel

Enjoy.

The (Not So) Brides of Dracula

Brides.jpg

What's up gang? We're back with a new episode this week, however, the film we cover THE BRIDES OF DRACULA is really only like a mini review of about 15 minutes contained within the episode.

The rest of this episode is us riffing on a ton of stuff that is going on. We apologise if you were looking a full comprehensive review of this flick, unfortunately we weren't too enamoured with this film, and struggled to provide a full length conversation on it.

However as stated, we do talk about a bunch of other stuff, some of it will be deemed offensive to thin skinned social justice warriors, but what the hey? That's the way it goes.

Anyway, we'll back next week with another episode, and we promise, a more in depth review of the film we cover, for now though, enjoy us just shooting the breeze (mostly).
See ya next week.

The Twilight Zone - Volume 1

serlingrod.jpg

This week the guys (well 2 of them, Hunter is missing on this one) go back in time and discuss 2 episodes of the magnificent, unparalleled classic television show The Twilight Zone. 

We discuss the episodes STATIC and also ESCAPE CLAUSE. We also talk about when times were much simpler, and how at times, we wish we could back to that life of simplicity.

So sit back, and take this journey into another dimension, back to a time when television was actually worth watching.

Enjoy
See ya next week.

Bride of Re-Animator

bride-of-reanimator-3.jpg

Weesssssttt.....YOU BASTARD!!!! With those words, we kick off to the sequel to one of the most original horror movies in many years Re-Animator, with Bride of Re-Animator.

On this episode, Hunter and Stu look at this much maligned film, which has just received an incredible blu ray release by Arrow.

We talk the film, the blu ray release and we also pay tribute to a podcasting giant - Vince Rotolo of the legendary B-Movie Cast who we sadly lost a few days ago.

So sit back and get yourself a very rare fill of horror from the MMC.

Enjoy

Orion: The Man Who Would Be King

orion.jpg

What do you get when you have a man who sounds exactly like Elvis, and wears a mask to hide his identity performing AFTER Elvis Presley's death in 1977? You get Orion AKA Jimmy Ellis, and his incredible story.

This week, we look at the excellent documentary Orion: The Man Who Would be King. Who was Orion?, What sort of shockwaves did he send in the late 1970's and early 1980's? And just how did it ultimately affect the man behind the mask - Jimmy Ellis?

This is a fascinating documentary, and an incredible story to boot.

Please note: We do drift off for 5 minutes to talk about the latest Cheap Trick album, only because it is so damn good and we couldn't help ourselves.

Anyway, sit back, listen and learn the amazing tale of Orion.

Go follow and support the filmmaker of Orion on Twitter HERE

Well in this episode, we cover (and we have been threatening it for a while now) Vol. 1 of the Hard Rockin' gem known as the Hard 'N Heavy video magazine.

Death Race 2000

dc2000.jpg

Hey all, back with a new episode, and this time we delve into the world of fast cars, senseless violence and beautiful women. Of course, we are talking none other, than the 1975 cult classic DEATH RACE 2000.
Who couldn't resist a film, where David Carradine, resplendent in his auto-erotic fixation garb, is named Frankenstein, or Sylvester Stallone - who has the worst case of crooked mouth ever, in any of his films, fires a tommy gun into the throng of onlookers in the audience, or nudity of beautiful women, strictly for the sake of nudity or.... ok, you get the picture.
Anyway, it all makes for another fun filled episode, of course we drift off onto our usual tangents, but then, it truly wouldn't be an MMC episode if we didn't, right?
Finally, please excuse the dodgy audio, Stuart's recording and mic had some technical difficulties, the impact should be minimal, but hey, we are just giving you all a heads up.
Enjoy
See ya next week.

Stay Away from Captain Howdy

captainhowdy.jpg

Stay Away, from Captain Howdy. Keep right away, not because he is scary or anything, it's because this film BLOWS. Yes, that's right folks, we venture into very rare territory this week - Horror, What with John absent for this one, Stu and Hunter, both fans of Dee Snider, decided to look at his 1998 effort - Strangeland.
What we discovered, was a clumsily written, and poorly made film, that looked solely into trying to turn the Captain Howdy character into a franchise, ala Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees etc etc.
We also discuss Dee and his recently defunct podcast, plus of course Twisted Sister. Like we say, we are fans of Dee, but we call this film for what it is....remember, stay away, right away from Captain Howdy.
Enjoy
See ya next week

Capturing the Mexicans….with Soopermexican!!

mex.jpg

After a very long absence from the show, we are finally joined again, by the legendary Soopermexican, to talk CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS, the very uplifting, family documentary... if your family is as messed up as this one that is.
We talk at length, some very heavy issues in this one, such as the heinous act of child abuse (of which is the central theme to the documentary). We also discuss some other things that leave us dumbfounded, such as Black History Month, Donald Trump, what is wrong with The Netherlands, and Soopermexican threatens to leave America if the Democrats get in.
It all makes for another fun filled episode, we hope the humour can counteract the depressive nature of the topic at hand.
Enjoy
See ya next week.
P.S - A big thanks to Soopermexican for the artwork, go follow him on twitter HERE

Betamax, VHS, DiscoVision, Laserdisc, VCD, what do all these formats have in common? They're all dead, and with the death knell for DVD already ushered in, is there one for blu ray on the horizon?
On this episode, we discuss the death of these formats, along with, is there still a place, and what sort of life span is left for DVD and Blu Ray?

Thanks to Paul for returning back with us on this one, it was a lot of fun.

tura-satana-in-faster-pussycat-kill-kill

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to violence! The word, and the act... and the podcast. That's right gang, this week, it's all about Russ Meyer, and his seminal film from 1965 - FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!
We discuss Meyer's masterpiece, while also discussing how his films were lean in length (and not an overblown mess like modern films are today) and also the beauties that are, the 3 female leads in this film.

And as usual, we trail off into other areas of discussion. It will probably upset the socialists, but meh, f**k em.

Chicken and Duck Talk

This week we have decided to finally look at, in depth, the 1988 comedy classic, from the multi talented Hui Brothers 'Chicken and Duck Talk'.
A wonderful little comedy, that unfortunately nobody knows outside of Asia. So Stu and John decided that it was time, that you Westerners opened your eyes, and your minds a bit, to the comic styling of the Hui Brothers, and in particular, this little gem of a film.
So listen on, and prepare to get hungry.

Bish’s Beat: A Conversation with author Paul Bishop

bishop.jpg

Welcome folks to another episode of the MMC. This week, we were very fortunate to be joined by legendary LAPD Detective turned author - Paul Bishop.
It's information overload on this one, as Paul is kind enough to share some of his stories, of his time in the LAPD, along with his thoughts on the O.J Simpson case, and the subsequent trial. He also regales us with his first hand account, of his time on the frontline during the L.A riots of 1992.
But that's not all, as we said, he is also an author, and a prolific one at that. He discusses his books with us (and his upcoming new one LIE CATCHERS) 
BUT, that's still not all, we also discuss the differences of portrayals of Police Officers in Hollywood, on the big and small screen, compared to that of real life.
It all makes for a fascinating listen, we cannot thank Paul enough for joining us, and look forward to having him back again, with us, in the near future.
Enjoy.
You can find Paul, and his works in the links below.
Go visit his website and buy his books HERE
You can also buy his FIGHT CARD Book series HERE
Follow Paul on Twitter HERE
Find Paul's page on Facebook HERE
And finally, buy Paul's books on Amazon HERE

The MMC Goes to the Drive-In

drive-in2.jpg

Tickets please !!! Got anybody in the trunk? Yes? Go on get outta here. Hey all, this week, we trek into drive-in territory, and look at a couple of AIP flicks from the 50's - INVASION OF THE SAUCERMEN plus HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER.
We talk about the benefit, sometimes, of a shorter leaner film, compared to a bloated modern day Hollywood feature. We also discuss the crude special effects of Hollywood back in the 50's, and, the films at hand of course.
So ease the seat back, stock up at the concession stand, and enjoy.
See you all next week.
NOTE: The sound on this episode is replicated to sound like it was broadcast out of a drive-in car speaker, there is nothing wrong with your sound system. We will return to normal sound next week.
