questions-answers-road-sign.png

 

Welcome to Week 3 of Doc Month.... NOT! Sorry folks, Doc Month is done, incomplete, but hey, you can't win 'em all.

So anyway, this episode, we decided to go casual, and do a Q & A with the MMC. There is a lot of banter in this one, a freeform, devoid of topic show.

2 hours of MMC for you all to enjoy.

Links to some of the discussions within.

P.S - At the time of this recording, Anthony Nesbitts' Youtube channel WAS active, unfortunately, it has now been shut down, hence why no link to it here.

Eurocrime

sabato.png

Ok, before you hurl your abuse, saying this was due out a month ago - we get it!! it's overdue, but life gets in the way. Anyway...

Welcome to week 2 of Doc Month. With this one, we are joined by The Bullsh*t Kid himself - Eric Zaldivar, to discuss a topic, which lately, seems to be rearing it's head on here a lot lately on the MMC - Eurocrime.

We look at the documentary Eurocrime (of which Eric was involved with it's making) to discuss, an era of years gone by - Italian crime films.

There are some hilarious stories on here, one almighty 20 minute plus tangent, and a bunch of other stuff.

Thanks for your patience, this episode will be worth it. We'll be back straight into it to bring you week 3 to close out Doc Month sooner rather than later.

Enjoy.

tfwnogf.png

 

Like, there's no Rock Month man, like, my life sucks. I just wanna die, like what is this doc month? like, why does the MMC have to be such dic-

SHUT UP YOU WHINY INCEL

Right! now, in lieu of no Rock Month this year, instead, we have decided to do Doc Month.

What is Doc Month you ask? Well, this month, we will be looking at Documentaries nobody else will cover, but ones we think you will be interested in. First one off the rank for July is Hunter's pic - TFW No GF. A documentary on the (self imposed) outcasts of society - Incels, and the struggle they have with adjusting to social life, unaided by a keyboard or monitor.

It's a sad, sometimes funny, but mostly fascinating look into the life of an Incel.

So sit back, don your cowboy hat and spurs, or oversized windbreakers, or whatever the hell individualises you, and listen on.

like, enjoy, while you laugh at my miserable life maaaannnn.

Greetings from Italy, this week the MMC boys, along with the help of Eric Zaldivar, look at the 1970 Charles Bronson film - Violent City.

Falling Down

Mousey returns.... sort of, well his son does, well not really... nevermind. Anyway, the three of us are back on board, and we discuss the no-way-could-you-make-this-today film FALLING DOWN starring Michael Douglas.

We discuss the film, it's parallels between it and his old man's film CAT AND MOUSE (which we covered a few weeks back) and the early 90's, a time when films like this COULD get made.

So, whilst we are all in lockdown, sit back, pop your mask and gloves on, and listen on.

Is it any good? Listen and find out!

We also discuss Sly's diet and workout routine, co-star Armand Assante's turn as Mike Hammer, pro-wrestling, and Tarzan movies.

Hey friends, we're back after a small delay, and to celebrate the career of the recently departed film legend Kirk Douglas, we thought we'd look at one of his lesser known titles - Cat and Mouse (AKA Mousey)

all the gang are on board this one, listen to Stu progressively lose his marbles throughout the show, while his head cold wreaked havoc on him. There's also a new feature we have added to the show, it's one only a show such as the MMC could dare to do.

So sit back, and let's raise a toast to one of cinemas giants Mr. Kirk Douglas

The Keep

KeepArt.jpg

Stu returns this week to discuss Michael Mann's "The Keep" with John and Hunter in celebration of its DVD release...in Australia. Sorry, lads. You'll have to keep waiting on that physical release in North America.

Speaking of, we discuss the film's troubled history, it's cult following, the numerous versions and changes to the movie that have occurred, and why we will probably never see a director's cut, despite this being the Mann film that most desperately needs one. And of course, we go on the usual tangents.

You can watch the movie on Amazon, check out the trailer below. 

Thanks for listening!

Singin’ in the Rain

My_Post_1_.jpg

 

This week, John and Hunter step out of the normal MMC comfort zone to talk about a musical, "Singin' in the Rain". Such an obscure pick! We talk about the film's humor! We talk about the parallels between the musical and the kung fu movie! We also ask a lot of questions, such as was Gene Kelly a huge pinko commie? Did he give money to the Irish Republican Army? What does it have to do with Saint Augustine? I don't know, listen and find out. Check the clips below to familiarize yourself, in case you've been living under a rock.

Yeeeahhhh, you knew it was comin' motherf*cker YEAH!! Yes friends, it's that time again, a new Rob Zombie film, a new carefully critiqued MMC episode on it, and of course this episode could not be done without the presence of the Armenian madman himself Garo Nigoghossian.

So, how bad is this one? well, it's... well, you will need to listen on and find out.

Not many tangents on this one friends, just basically RZ talk.

Anyway, enjoy

A Study in Tangents

large_a_study_in_terror_17_blu-ray_.png

 

Hey friends, yes it's been a month since the last episode (we'll blame Stu for that) but we are back with a new one, and well, whilst we do cover the 1965 Sherlock Holmes film A Study in Terror, it's primarily made up of about 80% tangents - sorry fam.

Anyway, we hope you'll enjoy this one, it's got kind of a review in there somewhere, and as stated tangents galore.

See ya next episode

Lords of Chaos

mmc_mayhem.png

 

Aaaaaarrgghhhh, mumble mumble, cookie monster vocals and all, the MMC (all 3) are back with a new episode. This time we travel to Norway to the late 80's, and delve into the rather bizarre tale, via film, of a band from that neck of the woods - Mayhem. 

Lords of Chaos is a somewhat ambivalent look at the life (and many deaths) of Mayhem, as told by filmmaker Jonas Akerlund.

So sit back, and listen to this mind blowing (pun intended) episode of one of the strangest bands to ever have graced (or disgraced) the music scene.

Enjoy

The Sartana Films

SartanaArtLogo_Small.jpeg

 

Eric Zaldivar is back, joining John and Hunter to discuss the "Sartana" series of spaghetti westerns. We talk about the Gianni Garko films, as well as the late George Hilton's one-off as the character. 

Eric is known for his expertise on the genre, check out his video below on "His Name Was Holy Ghost" for some further trivia on the "Sartana" films!

The Street Fighter Series

StreetFighterShowArtsmall.jpg

Get ready to smash some x-ray skulls with John and Hunter as they examine the legendary "Street Fighter" films, starring Sonny Chiba! This is one we attempted to record years ago, but technology occasionally makes fools of us all. With the recent-ish arrival of the Shout! Select Blu-ray set, we decided to tackle all three films.

Remember, the "Sister Street Fighter" movies are not part of this series, despite what Christian Slater would have you believe!

You can watch the movies on those Shout! discs, or you can check all three films out for free at the Internet Archive. Ain't modern life grand?

Nemesis

Nemesis_art.jpeg

 

This week, John and Hunter take a look at Albert Pyun's cyberpunk classic, "Nemesis", starring Olivier Gruner. It mixes John Woo action and William Gibson concepts nearly ten years prior to the Matrix, and remains an underseen genre-mixing movie. We also talk about Albert Pyun's career, and the qualities that make him an interesting director.

Dragged Across Concrete

DraggedArt.jpeg

Finally! At long last, the MMC crew review S. Craig Zahler's latest film, Dragged Across Concrete. Better late than never, right? John and Hunter are joined by filmmaker and regular guest Garo Nigoghossian ( which is why it took so long to edit this one).

This episode was actually recorded back in March, which is why we are talking as though Captain Marvel is new and Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith aren't pals again. Check out the trailer for the movie below, as well as the sweet O'Jays track from the film the director wrote with the band. Share with your friends!

Rock Month: Blue Öyster Cult

 BOCart.jpg

We finish out Rock Month 2019 with our collective pick, Blue Öyster Cult! John and Hunter take a look at the discography of the classic line-up, from their self-titled debut, all the way to the iconic "Fire of Unknown Origin". We also discuss their later career, their influence (or lack thereof), the rich themes of their songs, and the large cast of characters outside of the band that contributed to their music. Go listen, and check out some further viewing below!

"Veteran of the Psychic Wars", one of the handful of tunes BÖC wrote with sci-fi/fantasy author Michael Moorcock.

 

 

As John mentions, for kids growing up in heartland America, the only place you could hear any MC5 was on a BÖC live record.

 

 

As mentioned on the show, BÖC guitarist Buck Dharma produced a little-known solo album called "Flat Out".

RokyShowArt.jpg 

 

For the third week of Rock Month, Hunter picks the psychedelic world of late Texas rock n' roll legend Roky Erickson, from his sixties group, The 13th Floor Elevators, to his erratic, UHF and schizophrenia-inspired solo career from the eighties, to 2010.

If you've never been introduced to Roky's crazy world, you're in for a treat. Also, we recommend the documentary on Erickson's troubled life and career, "You're Gonna Miss Me", it's a must see!

Why go arh and wanna deez, John go tend to his hiva beez, why arh, why arh, kickstart why arh.

And with those indecipherable lyrics, as sung by the christmas ham himself Vince Neil, the MMC boys, along with friend and returning guest from way back when - Richard Kuhn - look at the forever touted Motley Crue biopic - The Dirt.

For those of you who have read the book, you would know it is basically the Naked lunch of Rock biographies i.e it is un-filmable. So, how did Netflix and their team fair up? Well you'll have to listen to find out.

This is one of our longer episodes we have done in a while, there is a lot of 80's hair metal tangents interspersed in here also.

Enjoy

The Octagon

OctagonArt.jpg

 

We're back with another Chuck Norris flick, this one being the 1980 opus of inner-monologue echo, "The Octagon". Chuck is joined by Lee Van Cleef, Ernie Hudson, and Chuck's cool mustache. It's like an Alan J. Pakula thriller with ninjas. Speaking of ninjas, no one will admit they exist. They're like the Freemasons or something!

Check it out on Amazon Prime here! Trailer below!
