This week, John, Hunter, and Stu look at one of the most beloved episodes of the original Star Trek series, "City on the Edge of Forever."

Read Any Good Films Lately?

bookworm.jpeg

 

Hey gang, back with a bit of a left turn for us. This week Stuart and John look at the once popular Novelization. You see there was a time, when a film, would be turned into a novel, for folks to read, as well as watch.

Sadly, the novelization died a death sometime in the last 15 years, and are now barely seen on shelves at book stores (although they are still written, just not in the prominence they once were).

So, let us take you back to a time, when the Novelization, was an important component in helping to promote a film, and too a time, when people would still read books.

See ya next week

Enjoy.

“When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder”.

redryder.jpg

Red honey, welcome home.

Here it is friends, after near on 7 years of Stuart, constantly harping on about, and professing his love for this film, we finally cover the great "When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder".

Spearheaded, by A Tour de Force performance by Marjoe Gortner, and featuring very solid performances by all other cast involved. This (mostly forgotten) film required discussion. 

There are no tangents this week folks, the odd bit of discussion, away from the film, but it is all relevant. 

So, grab  yourself a plate of Steak and Eggs (it's our specialty), and listen in with us, as we talk this absolute gem of a film.

*Show Notes*

The MMC Vs. Amazon Prime

prime.jpg

 

Hey gang, we're all here again this week, along with show favorite Garo. On this one we tackle Amazon Prime, and their rather insane decidion, to censor films (mostly independent horror films) due to gore and nudity.

As bastions of free speech, and anti censorship, this doesn't sit well with us (well one of us makes a semi counter argument) and we decided to let fly, with on our thoughts on it.

WARNING - This episode is NSFW, but it's the four of us together, so when is it ever NSFW?

See you all next week

Enjoy.

HLatM 1 - Bitter Harvest

bitterharvestshowart.jpeg

Hunter Looks at the Movies is no longer just a meme, fam! This is a new show that's just a bite-sized look at a movie I've recently seen. I recently went to see the film Bitter Harvest, and I wanted to talk about it, but it would be tough to do as a regular MMC show, so I figured I would go ahead and do this solo thing on the feed. Let me know what you think, I'd like to do more of these in the future.

We decided to do a Bond movie this week, so we went with For Your Eyes Only. Now I can't get the stupid song out of my head. It's been over a week. I just want it to go away! PLEASE! HELP! Anyway, this week's show is a good 'un! No Stuart on this one, he'll be back one of these days.

Freddy Vs. Jason

Freddy Vs. Jason?! What the Hell?! Are the MMC becoming gorehound horror fans?! Not so fast, fam. Remember, the best film in either franchise is directed by Ronny Yu, and we're big fans of movies like Fearless and The Postman Returns over here at the MMC. John and Hunter talk about how the movie captures a comic book aesthetic better than most comic book movies, how horror has changed drastically since this movie came out, and other random tangents.

Remember to rate and review us on iTunes if you haven't already, it helps a lot! Thanks for listening!

2016: In Review

2016.png

And so it is, that we say farewell to 2016. A year with some highs and some lows. This episode is not so much strictly, 2016 in review of films (although we do cover that) but 2016 in general.

Anyway, the MMC will be back in 2017, bigger and badder than ever. Until then, everybody, stay safe Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to you all.

Thanks so much everyone, for your support.

See ya next year.

The Best of British Vol.1

union_jack.jpg

Oi, right, like, this week, we go all Brit-ish and decided to look at 3 sitcoms, that would by and large, be considered as unknown. We look at HANCOCKS HALF HOUR, ON THE BUSES and LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR.

With Stu very familiar with all of these shows, it was interesting to get a view of them, from an American perspective, on these 3 shows, from a different time, where political correctness did not exist, thank goodness. 

Anyway, here are the links as to where you can buy these collections.

The Tony Hancock Collection can be found on PAL DVD HERE

On the Buses can be found on PAL DVD HERE

On the Buses can be found on NTSC (R1) DVD HERE

Love Thy Neighbour can be found on PAL DVD HERE

Metallica: Hardwired… To Self-Destruct

hw.jpeg

After 8 years, Metallica finally decided to be produtive, and released some new music. Since the MMC are Metallica fans (minus John who is not, and decided to sit this week out) we decided to review the new album, track by track, with the help of one of our listeners, and mega Metallica fan - Trinity Martin.

For the record, no, this not a Rock Month episode - it's not June, so it can't be. However we did wanna mix things up a bit this week. 

Anyway, relax, sit back and make your own mosh pit as we dive into all things Metallica.

See ya next wek.

The Blob (1958)

hhthe-blob-1958.jpg

Beware of the blob, it creeps, and leaps, and glides and slides across the floor.... you know the song, you most likely know the film also. A 28 year old Steve McQueen, trying to pass as a 17 year old kid, cheap effects etc etc. 

This week, we look at with fond (and some not so fond) memories of THE BLOB.

So sit back, grab some Popcorn, and a Soda, and listen as we talk all about THE BLOB (and a side tangent or 2).

See ya next week

Midnight Movie Gameboys: Metal Gear Solid

MGShowart.jpg 

 

Last week, we were eagerly awaiting the coming of God Emperor Trump on the show, so naturally you would think this episode would be a victory lap. Sadly, John and Stu couldn't make it, so Hunter and Garo got together to do a show we wanted to do last year before Garo fell ill with cancer. Since John and Stu hate video games, doing a side show with Hunter and Garo talking games has been on the burner for awhile. So, here is the premiere episode of the Midnight Movie Gameboys, where we talk about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, as well as the Metal Gear series in general. Let us know what you think, and if you want more shows like this. Enjoy, and MAGA!

Weiner

It tells the tale of Weiner, and his time on the comeback trail, in the race for the Mayor of New York, however, certain circumstances, see Weiner and his campaign, go horribly wrong. Poor Carlos.

Also, with the U.S election a mere day or two away, we chime in with our thoughts, rants and cautionary warnings.

This episode is strictly NSFW and NSFL (Not safe for Liberals)

Godzilla 1984 (aka The Return of Godzilla)

This week, John and Hunter were planning on reviewing the latest Godzilla movie, Shin Godzilla, however we waited too long to get tickets and we thought it looked dull anyway. So instead, we discuss Godzilla 1984, also known as The Return of Godzilla. The Japanese version finally got a region 1 release on Blu-ray from Kraken, so revisiting it made for an interesting discussion.

You've heard mention of it over the last 2 years, and FINALLY it is here. Yes, that's right, ourselves, along with the return of Garo Nigoghossian (AKA Genocidehead) discuss the latest Rob Zombie attempt - 31.

EAR/ONS II

east_area_rapist.jpg

Hey gang, this week, we return to the mysterious case of EAR/ONS. For those of you familiar with our episode from a couple of years ago that we did, the first EAR/ONS episode
We delved into the strange tale of EAR/ONS with filmmaker, and friend of the show Cameron Cloutier, who was /still is in the process of getting his film, about the last victim, Janelle Lisa Cruz, made.
This time around, the MMC have gone one step further. We go even deeper into the mysterious individual known as EAR/ONS, with the one man, who is considered the best source of knowledge on the case - Author Gian Quasar, PLUS we are also joined by Janelle Lisa Cruz's sister - Michelle Cruz.

Please note, there is zero film talk on this episode. It is solely about this still unsolved case. The content is very heavy, but the subject itself is not for the faint of heart.

Don't listen to this one alone, or with the lights out, this seriously is some scary stuff, and unfortunately, it is all real.

We cannot thank our guests enough for their time, and lending us their stories and the information that they have. Please follow the links below, and reach out to them, and go get yourself a whole lot more information on this bizarre tale.

The FBI's official page on EAR/ONS


Gian Quasar's fantastic website, not just about EAR/ONS, but many other things.


Go visit Michelle's facebook page, about her sister Janelle.

Also check out Cameron Cloutier's facebook page 'Bird with a Broken Wing'

See ya next week, along with the man in black.

Jaws 2

donna_wilkes_2.jpg

A Shaaarrkkkk!!!!! Hey gang, back this week, with a film, that is a bit more mainstream than what we usually cover - JAWS 2.

While not quite the classic that its' predecessor JAWS was, in terms of quality, this one still did well at the box office, so we thought we'd talk about it this week, and see if it still holds up.

So grab your surfboard, or pull up a beach chair and listen on. And, oh, if you have tits like a sparrow, better bring some padding for that bikini.

Enjoy.

Hey all, this week, the MMC go clear, with GOING CLEAR. Alex Gibney's documentary was groundbreaking as an expose on the Church of Scientology, and we talk all about it, with a few tangents on the side, as usual.

Grab your e-meters, and hold on tight. By the words of Xenu - Listen to the Midnight Movie Cowboys!!!!!
